Delia Binder
In part three of this four-part series, which I (unofficially) co-read with my friend and co-GR Reviewer Donna J, series heroine Kate "Katrina" Martin finally explains her "bondage as a hard limit" issue to Jax: It's the result of having been handcuffed by the police when she was accused of killing her father, so it's all wrapped up in The Trauma That Has Warped Her Life. We also finally get the story of how her father died, and why she got accused of killing him ((view spoiler) ...more

4 STARS

Although I still think I know who did it, this is a twist I didn't expect. Why do people not tell the truth? I don't understand why people tell little white lies that always come out and will get them in trouble. Jaxon should have opened up to her before he committed to her. He should have made sure everything was out in the open. He demanded honesty and openness from her, but wasn't willing to give it himself.

But, I get whats going on now. And my hunch, I still think is right. Joseph tr

Fab continuing story. Fab series! PASSION next and I couldn't wait because I knew the mystery wasn't solved yet.

Kate is discovering she enjoys the world Jaxon is showing her but she still can’t bring herself to succumb completely to it, especially with her past rearing its ugly head at nearly every turn. Having thought she’d put it completely behind her, she’s coming to realize that it doesn’t take much to bring it screaming back to the forefront…just a little investigative ingenuity. When the

**3.5 Stars

In this third installment, my list of suspects got shorter. But the question still remains in my mind, is he the real killer? Or was my main suspect this whole time the actual killer?

So in this book we become one hundred percent sure that the killer is out to get Kate. This causes Nick's (over)protective instincts to go all out. At this point, I don't trust him at all and at times makes me uncomfortable on how close he gets to Kate. I

I received the book from Harper Collins for an honest review.

This story just gets better and better. From the first book the author had the ability to draw you into the world of bondage, murder and mayhem. The characters remained true to their personalities as you learn more about them. The deeper you go the better you understand and it really feels as if you know the people on a personal level.
The sex is of course mind blowing, but the romance that it generates is pure with so many doubts and

I can't even bring myself to care enough about this story to write a proper review for this instalment. I won't be reading part 4 because I've already tortured myself more than enough for one lifetime thank you.

My complaints for this series were pretty much covered in my reviews of the first two instalments:

Part 1: Mercy
Part 2: Greed

It probably goes without saying that the main character continues to act like a moron as well as moon over pretty much any male she comes into contact with. The plot

OMG, this series......Like seriously.....I love it. SO much suspense,....Jaxon is so damn hot!!! Just in love with this series. I still think I may know who the killer could be, but I can't wait to see how it all ends. Just everything I love in a book. The suspense and danger, the amazingly hot steamy scenes, hot bossy alpha men. It just keeps me hooked and wanting for more.

Another thrilling instalment. With some electricity play to boot! This author sure knows how to steam up the pages AND keep you in suspense!

I can't wait until all is revealed in the fourth and final instalment.

This series is getting better and better not sure whats going to happen next, he friend gets hurt because the killer thinks it is Kate because the two friends look alike so much. She is still working undercover to get answer for this case. Another murder from years ago pops up and more evidence points towards Jaxon.

You cannot read each book in the White Collard series individually. The ending of one book bleeds right into the next book. I am not rating each book individually but the entire story. What happens to Nick is heart wrenching. I like the chemistry with Kate and Jaxon.

If you read my reviews with any regularity or follow me on Twitter, you’ve already heard how I’ve soured on most serial romance novels, especially when some seem to go on forever, with a total cost well beyond the price of a comparable full-length novel. But as with so many other romance trends I claim to dislike, there is always a

White Collared started with an intriguing start that only builds with each installment to the story. While I was intrigued from the start, I wasn't completely satisfied with what I found, wanting more from both the characters and the storyline.

Mercy really served as an intro to the lives of Kate, Jax, and Nick, and served to set up the situation that will soon unravel.

The secondary characters were the ones who really rang true for me with this e-serial. I loved Logan, Camille, and se

Oh man... This book was awesome. Suspense. Romance. BDSM. Alpha men. Kick ass heroine. You name it, you got it. PLEASE DON'T READ ANY SPOILERS ON ANYONE'S REVIEWS UNTIL YOU'VE READ THE BOOKS

It was really, really amazing. I've never read a book with this combination. Her style of writing was also awesome. This is the first time I've read Shelly Bell and it most certainly won't be the last.

So I loved this installment so much that I immediately started reading Part 4. But I promise I won't spoil anything.

Here is what we know to be true by now. The sex is hot. Jax and Kate will wear out your vibrator/husband cause this shit is hot. Basically this happens:


The twists and turns are really starting to pick up and at the end of this book there is a major one. Of course we know there is one final installment so it can't all be solve

Well written with a story that is deep, interesting and well put together, full of plots and twists, it will blow your mind!

Now for Part three - Kate has finally shared her secrets with Jaxon. Things are heating up between them, if not in the case. Suspects are being eliminated. An uneasy truce with a reporter reveals the Jaxon lied about his alibi. Kate does not have tolerance for liars.
A clue pans out and points to a totally unknown suspect. Kate goes to investigate and suddenly finds herself in the midst of this book’s cliffhanger. Grrrr. Where is that last book - Passion? Need to know what happens – now!
