Driven by ambition …
Third-year law student Kate Martin outran her tragic past to become an intern for her idol and secret crush, the powerful attorney Nicholas Trenton. She is thrilled when Nick assigns her to represent his best friend and client, millionaire Jaxon Deveroux … the prime suspect in his submissive wife Alyssa's murder.
Seduced by desire …
Kate knows they have only a few days to find the real killer, and since signs point to a member of the BDSM community, she volunteers to go undercover as Jaxon's submissive at Benediction—the private sex club where he is a member—to covertly investigate Alyssa's last few months. For years, Kate has kept her dark fantasies a secret … but a chance to explore them with sexy, dominant Jaxon is just too tempting to pass up
Review: Wow! Hot Damn. White Collared Part One: Mercy is an incredible read. It mixes two things that I love in books - sexiness & suspense.
Kate is a wonderful main character who is so driven to succeed at the law firm she's interning at that she's devises a plan to go undercover to help her boss's client/best friend. But this isn't just any undercover operation. No, Kate is about to take a trip into the world of BDSM and the conductor of this sexy ass train is Mr. Jax Deveroux. (Yum) I loved that Jax isn't your typical brooding DOM. He definitely sets himself apart from the moment he's in the same room as Kate as carrying and attentive. I'm very excited to see where Ms. Bell is taking us in the next part.
I have to add that although I loved Jax, I'm torn because Nicholas Trenton is Kate's very sexy lawyer boss and throwing him into the mix had my head spinning. I want them both! Kate wants them both. I think Ms. Bell needs to grant our wishes and write a ménage à trois with the three of them. ;)
Overall, I think this is an amazing start to a very promising series. I loved the suspense. It pulls you in from page one and you're wrapped in this story until the end. I highly recommend this to fans who loved the suspense aspect of FSOG. I loved it! And I'm dying for more clues to help my mind solve the mystery revolving around the murder of Jax's wife.
