In the thrilling conclusion of Shelly Bell's White Collared series, Kate and Jaxon are finally free to put the past behind them, but a shocking betrayal could have deadly consequences that neither saw coming.

Compelled by truth …
With Alyssa's murder solved, Kate attempts to fix the damage to her relationship with Jaxon, but with his reputation and career destroyed by false accusations, Jaxon asks for time to consider their future. Yet as hard as Kate tries, she can't extinguish her desire for Jaxon, or forget the pleasure she's found in submission.

Dominated by love …
In an attempt to convince Jaxon they truly belong together, Kate allows him to dominate her completely, signifying her trust and proving her love. But just as everything she's ever dreamed of is finally within her grasp, Kate discovers a chilling secret from Alyssa's past that brings her world crashing down … and reveals a murderer hiding in plain sight.








*****5+++++ Shocked, Stunned & Awed Stars*****
~this review contains spoilers from parts one, two & three~

I belong to you, Jax.”
“I want you. You have no idea how much. When I heard that you had gone to Miles Joseph's office without backup, I wanted to bend you over my knee, spank your ass for being reckless, and handcuff you to my wrist so you'd never be able to go anywhere without me. You've been my bright star in an otherwise dark sky this past week. But I don't know if I have anything to give back. I've made so many mistakes in both my marriage and my relationship with you. You deserve much more than I can give you right now.”

I am stunned beyond belief by this author, in awe, in love, and just floored. From the very beginning, this series has kept you guessing while leading you through an emotional hurricane and holding you on the edge of arousal-all leading up to the explosive ending you will never see coming.

Title or not, this man was her Master and knew her almost better than she knew herself.

We start the final installment feeling secure in the fact that the murderer has been discovered and taken out of the picture. Jax & Kate are finally free to explore their relationship, but Jax isn't so sure he wants to drag Kate down with him in the aftermath of being a murder suspect and having his lifestyle exposed. He may be free of the suspicion of murdering his wife now, but his life has been dragged through the gutter and his career has been destroyed in the process- he needs time to figure out where he goes from here. Nick takes this opportunity to make his move on Kate and now she has a decision to make.
Does she take a chance on #TeamNick – the man she has been secretly crushing on for years and has recently become her friend and protector, someone she can rely on?
Or does she fight for #TeamJaxon – the man who has helped heal her as he showed her her inner-most desires and wants nothing more than to care for her and protect her? Can she give him the one thing he desperately needs- her complete and total submission?
When the last piece of the puzzle falls into place, Kate makes a discovery uncovering a murderer hiding in plain sight all this time- destroying everything she though she knew in an explosion that will leave someone paying the ultimate price.

She felt pulled in two different directions, uncertain which way to turn. The magnetic pull of him was too tempting to resist. She had to see him. Had to know if what they shared was real. No matter what Camille thought and regardless that she fantasized about being with them both, she wasn't torn between the men. Her heart and head knew who she wanted.

To say this ending shocked me would be the understatement of the century. Now that I'm done, all I want to do is start over just to see how I could have missed where this story was leading me. I am a mess of confusion right now- on the one hand, I couldn't be happier with how Kate's story ended, but I am truly saddened by the cost. However, I can't honestly see it ending any other way. One thing is for sure- Shelly Bell has definitely turned me into a hard-core, if not slightly obsessed, fangirl for life. This series went above and beyond anything I could have hoped for and I cannot wait to see what Ms. Bell has in store for us next.

Does my beautiful Katerina need another orgasm already?”
“Only if it pleases you, Jax”
Fuck yes, it pleases me. I live to make you come.”
