WOW, but how I loved this short story series. There was a twist, that had made me doubt myself a little but I had been right in the end. The series never seems to be way too rushed. I mean it is a short story series but I never felt like in two sentences something had happened that can sometimes happen in these type books. There is a little bit of everything I love, suspense, hot scenes, alpha males, plus a great story that leaves you hanging on the edge of your seat. I highly recommend it. :)

I promised I'd write this review at the start of the Summer, and here it is after Election Day and I still haven't finished it! In the interim I managed to read two of Shelly Bell's other books, Sway With Me by Shelly Bell SWAY WITH ME and Stirring Up Trouble by Shelly Bell STIRRING UP TROUBLE - a pair of whimsical "magical realism" stories about two daughters of a flighty, free-spirited mother who believes the three of them are Muses meant to inspire the men they love. Reading these seems to confirm my speculation in the Updates for this book, th ...more

I'd be lying if I say I had see it coming.

I know something fishy was going on when they caught the killer oh-so easily in Book 3.

So glued to this series, I inhaled this last installment so fast it surprised even me because I just had to know if I'd solved the mystery even before reaching this one. No disappointment. This series rocked it!

This installment will have you questioning everything that you thought you already knew and start questioning where the investigation has already taken you. That’s all I’m going to tell you because if I say anything more, I’ll be giving up too much information and you have to experience i

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

The twists in this final chapter of the White Collared Series had me glued to this book. The suspense had intensified so much that I couldn't believe the book when I reached the period at the end.
It was an emotional roller coaster that led you to the heights and the very lows of the plot; it was fast paced and at times slow but in it all the final twist barreled in making you gasp for breath.
Nick's role had more prominence and you

White Collared is a serialized, stand-alone erotic thriller that ultimately ends with a HEA. Each installment is 100 pages and will be released weekly throughout the month of June. Passion is the fourth installment. You must read Mercy, Greed, and Revenge first.

I love it when I'm right. Although there was a misdirection thrown in there, I had a feeling I knew who the bad guy was. Although he wasn't really bad. I liked what the judge said about people not being born bad, but that some choice leads them down a dark path and then ultimately there's nothing they can do to turn it around. I think this is what happened to both guys. But ultimately Nick had a little bit of a screw loose.

But, I think Kate aka Katerina handled herself really we

I was not surprised as to who killed Alyssa but I was surprised as to who her first Dom was. I was disappointed in the ending of the book. I know that Kate and Jaxon end up together but it was kind of a let down how it ended. I liked how both Kate and Logan wanted to begin their own law firm and become lawyers for those involved in the "kink" lifestyle. The series was not bad overall but the ending was just lacking.

Nope. Not happening. I quit!

wo this is not what I say coming I dint think that person was the one that killed her, Jaxon and Kate had a little falling out even though they thing Alyssas murder is solved because someone else took the fall for it. But they found out it was someone close to them that killed her in the end the two lovers work things out and Kate and one other of her friends from the firm are going to open there own law practice.

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.

*Please note that this is the fourth and last part of a story. Each part comprising its own book. The first three parts need to be read in sequential order before this book to fully appreciate the plot, and this review contains spoilers for the prior installments.*

What a stunning conclusion to an erotic thriller that is full of edgy, steamy BDSM scenes and intricate suspense filled passages. Although little clues were strewn throughout the prior three parts, its not really until this installment

These serialized erotic romances are taking the Romance World by storm! Every time I log in to Facebook or other social media, I see more and more coming out! Ever since then, I have been devouring these like crazy! I LOVE them! If you want a sexy, suspenseful, quick read, a serial series is the way to go. The WHITE COLLARED Series by Shelly Bell had me gagged, bound, and held hostage from Part One and on. I was lucky to receive all four parts all at once, and let me tell you, THANK GOD!

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

After the unexpected conclusion of White Collared Part Three, I thought it was all over. Shelly Bell played with me (lol!) I really thought I was wrong, but she threw us one more curve all.

This time around Kate's past is completely revealed. We've had bits and pieces throughout the series, but we finally get the some concrete details. I had lots of questions throughout this book and I was glad to finally get them answered. Nick is ju

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.

Hallelujah! Not that each installment of this didn't keep me at the edge of my seat but I needed to know that my instincts were right and they were!


Now I'm not going to tell you what those instincts were cause that would ruin it.

But holy shocking twist - this was awesome!!! In the last installment of this serial, Kate and Jax know that they need to be together but actually being together is hard.

Kate made some choices that really hurt Jax

I do not think anyone can understand how much I LOVE THIS SERIES and how absolutely heartbroken I am, that it’s over! The four books, Mercy, Greed, Revenge and Passion have just been outstanding! These books have the perfect combination to blow any other erotic thriller out of the water! So without trying to give anything away, I will try to explain the book. So Kate and Nick have found Alyssa's killer and the person they tried to kill Hannah...or have they? Things just don't quite add up for Ka ...more

I discovered Shelly Bell by beta reading for one of her books, and since i am addicted! But White Collared is now one of my favorite!!! Well written with a story that is deep, interesting and well put together, full of plots and twists, it will blow your mind! The characters are broken and strong, interesting but mysterious, sexy and hot without lacking brain cells! I loved most of them and hated a few! The writting style is so amazing that

Wow! We left the last book thinking the killer was about to be caught, and he was, kind of. But was he the killer they were actually looking for?

This book took a huge left turn and totally messed with my head. In true mystery – crime drama fashion, we don’t get to know who the killer actually is until the end. And it wasn't who you thought it was. I know it very much surprised me. What was even more surprising was the motive.

This was a wonderful crime drama, murder mystery. I loved the charact
