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 just as overprotective of Kate as he had always been, but this time it's making me even more uncomfortable. Jaxon and Kate perfect chemistry and with Nick getting in the way time and time again, I just wanted him gone.
Alyssa's murderer is finally revealed and it was definitely someone I suspected in the last book. What I loved the most about this series was that it kept me guessing. From the moment I read part one, I had a lists of suspects. It wasn't until part three that I really had one main suspect, but once again I thought I was wrong. I loved that this series kept me on edge from beginning to end and part four was the perfect conclusion.
The only problem I had was that I was expecting the BDSM aspect of it to stand out more. Jaxon and Kate do embrace that lifestyle, but I just wanted the author to take it a step further.
If you are looking for a sexy, fast-paced story that will keep you on your toes, this one is definitely for you!

The end to the sexy, suspenseful ride of Jaxon and Kate is finally here. Alyssa’s case seemed as if a conclusion had been reached, secret relationships were revealed as well as connected paths. Nick –as always - was there for Kate when Jaxon couldn’t be and I’m not going to lie, this irked me as Nick was trying to get between them at every opportunity.
The secrets didn’t stop, Kate discovered a link to the past that shed light on new suspects and it made her question everything she believed to be true. This was one of my favourite things about this series, nothing was ever set in stone, shocks and surprises were just around the corner and my theories would be smashed to smithereens by the swipe of a page. I love a book that engages me and from the start I was continually trying to connect the dots and reach a conclusion before Kate did. When the truth finally came out, I wasn’t as surprised as I had guessed the main details and it was great to read the finer details and how they all connected.
The White Collared series is one of my favourite novella serials; it was full of hot passion, a sexy Alpha male and a deep level of suspense and mystery. The first page engrossed me and I don’t think I paused for breath until the very last. I did expect the level of BDSM to be greater, I thought it was going to play a bigger part as this was Jaxon’s background. What we did get was sexy, Jaxon and Kate played their parts well but I was expecting it to play a bigger role.
I loved the way in which the book ended, it was a sexy lighthearted note and further reminded me that Kate is a lucky, lucky girl!
I enjoyed Shelly Bell’s writing throughout the entire series, I was engrossed from the start and she created some intriguing and twisted characters. I highly recommend this series to all fans of Adult Erotic Suspense.
