This is my first Shelly Bell novel and boy was it hot, the story line was excellent and well written, the characters were great especially Cole and Danielle, I can't wait to read more about the other characters so I'm off to buy the next book in the Benediction series, it's exciting stuff to discover a new author with an extensive list of books that will keep me busy for the next few weeks. Yeah!!!!!

"I received a free copy of the book to read and review for Wicked Reads"

This fast paced mystery based in a BDSM club has all the ingredients to get you hot and bothered. It mixes high drama and danger with sexy scenes of D/s and a budding romance many years in the making. Bluff and double bluff with a big unexpected twist or three at the end are enough to make the reader forget to breathe! Couple this with an emergent love story, with a potential tragedy thrown in and it probably uses up as many calories as a work out at the gym - but far, far more pleasurably. Fun, feisty, frenetic, and undoubtedly little unbelievable, this is definitely worth a read.

I've been in a bit of a book funk lately, but this one caught me from the first page and I couldn't put it down. I read it in one day.

Danielle is being forced to infiltrate a sex club so she can find documents that no one else has been able to get their hands on. Cole, the owner, is someone she knew in the past.

Their chemistry was incredibly hot. The BDSM aspects of the book were mild, but still done well in a sexy way.

I loved the unique twists in the story because every time I thought I had it figured out, I'd be proven wrong and that was a beautiful surprise.

The only part of the story I didn't care for were some of the clinical terms when it came down to the naughty bits, but it was easy to see past and enjoy the story anyway.

HASH(0xa11789d8) out of 5 stars Suspense at Club Benediction 9 April 2015
By PansyPetal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Last May I was introduced to a new to me author Shelly Bell with her four part serial – White Collared. I enjoyed that story so when I saw this author with a new story that featured the same BDSM club, well, I just had to check it out. I am so glad I did. Red Handed was just as good. Don’t worry, Red Handed was a definite stand-alone story. Jaxon and Kate from White Collared made cameos but only as secondary characters.

When I started reading the first chapter I was rather concerned that I had chosen to start this book at bed time. I know better, but bad habit. The heroine is awaked in the middle of the night by a masked man and threatened with her step mother’s death if she doesn’t do what she is told. OMG! Instant suspense. Although it was difficult, once Danielle made it to Benediction, I was able to settle down and get a few hours of sleep before I finished the rest of the book.

There are couple things that made it very difficult for Danielle to complete the task of infiltrating Benediction and stealing from its owner, Cole. One – Danielle is a painfully shy wallflower with no self-esteem. She may fanaticize, but actually doing . . . Second – although she has had a crush on Cole since she was seventeen years old, she also believes he is responsible for her father’s death.

Benediction is an interesting club. Like many of them – Club Sin, Shadowlands, and Masters at Arms Club – the place was a residence and the owners also live in them, not to mention that the club is almost another character to the story. Cole DeMarco is the owner of Benediction as well as the acknowledged Master. He not only owns the club, but he runs a stable of trainees who also live there. Although he trains these men and woman in the joys of BDSM – some are total subs, some will be doms and some will be switches – he abstains from having intercourse with any of them. He doesn’t want them to get attached. He is not looking for, nor does he want, a sub/slave of his own. A bit unusual for the owner of a BDSM club, but well, that is what gives this book some added interest.

Now, that being said, Cole also has two permanent “slaves” that live at Benediction. Keep an eye on Adrian and Gracie, they are so much more than they are presented as. Cole, like any dom, is a multi-layered individual. He, of course, is independently wealthy. He has an artistic side and his pictures are displayed in the club. He has secrets on top of secrets though.

That my dear readers is the set up for the thrilling suspense story. There are, of course, the wonderful sex scenes that can be found in any book set in a BDSM club. *fanning self* But, there is also the “mystery” or suspense of the story. Where Danielle thought she would be safe while at Benediction, she is finding things in her locked room and still being threatened in the middle of the night. Doesn’t make for sleeping very well.

An old nemesis that was introduced in White Collar adds some further suspense. Just when I thought things were getting figured out and we could get to the happy ever after – BAM! The author throws a curve ball. OMG! Gasp! NOoooo! Okay, I have to breathe here. Let me say, things then got really tense and exciting. Nothing was as we were lead to believe. Now that is a good suspense thriller.

I have fallen in love with this author and Benediction. I can only hope there will be more. Gracie and Adrian need stories. Not to mention a couple of other secondary character. I will be watching for more.

I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

HASH(0xa10124a4) out of 5 stars In Review: Red Handed by Shelly Bell 29 Mar. 2015
By Kim {kimberlyfaye reads} - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Not only had I never read a book by Shelly Bell before Red Handed, I had never read anything from Avon's Red Impulse imprint. I went into this one a bit blind, but hoping for a good solid, sexy read. That's exactly what I got. (Oh, and it was a good bit dirtier than I expected... and I am more than ok with that.) Shelly definitely brought the heat. :)

I loved having Shelly's dreamcast for Cole and Danielle when I began this book. Cole was a tough guy to get a read on at first, but picturing Jason Mamoa as I read definitely didn't hurt. (Rawr.) Danielle was a little easier to relate to in a lot of ways. I felt I better understood her motivations and what was driving her. Cole was mysterious. Sexy as hell, obviously interested in Danielle, but guarded and full of secrets. Which, given his line of work, made sense.

This book is as much about Danielle's growth as it is the abduction of her stepmother and the relationship between her and Cole. In the midst of everything else, Danielle is given the opportunity to discover who she really is and embrace some of her darker desires during her time at Benediction. There's a certain freedom to being able to fully explore your sexuality without judgement or recourse. Danielle definitely found that here. She also found a real connection with Cole, a man she's had a crush on since she was a teen.

I already mentioned Red Handed brought the heat, but it also brought the suspense. A little dark at times, it kept me guessing at what would happen next and who was ultimately behind everything. There are some unexpected twists that I enjoyed too. I'd not read the White Collared serial before beginning this book, but I didn't feel that was a problem. The Benediction books stand on their own. I do think I'll go back and read it though, just because I enjoy Shelly's style and her characters.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review.

HASH(0xa07d6d38) out of 5 stars Fabulous 29 Mar. 2015
By Reese's - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Holy smokes Red Handed is definitely a panty melting hot read.

First off I love me some interracial love so that was amazing and definitely a plus in regards to this book. Go interracial love!!

Danielle wakes up in the middle of the night one night to a man in her bed and a gun to her head. Now her stepmother has been taken and she’s heading into enemy territory. Having always been a sexual deviant Danielle takes this opportunity at Cole DeMarco’s sex club to help get her stepmother out of danger and to explore her sexual side. Except everything is harder than she thought. Danielle is falling in love with Cole her long time crush and Danielle fits in more than she ever expected.

I loved this book. Seriously it was the bomb.

Danielle has some self-esteem issues but she grows into an amazingly strong character. She starts off as a shy scared woman, but she turns into such an awesome woman who will fight for what she believes in.

Cole is a foxy foxy who has some issues. Cole is a super hot alpha male who has a major hot spot for Danielle. He is running the sex club to help others find what they need in a safe space. He has also done everything in the last couple years he’s been taking care of Danielle from afar.

The casts of characters in this story were absolutely amazing. Gracie and Logan were all absolutely hilarious. I loved how all the characters were important to every part of this story. I am definitely on board to reading the rest of this amazing series.

The entire story and mystery surrounding both Cole and Danielle’s life is so insane I couldn’t believe it. The real evil person in this story was so not who I thought it was. This whole story was just not what I expected at all. It was a great mystery with lots of suspense and hot sexy times. I loved every minute of this story.

I seriously want to recommend this book to every single person who loves BDSM and romance. Completely love this story so to those of you who love kinky love stories you need to get on this.

HASH(0xa08d3444) out of 5 stars Must read! 3 April 2015
By jennifer schultheis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Red Handed: A Benediction Novel is such an amazing read!!! It's scorching hot, so there maybe times when you will fan yourself. I was kind of in a book funk before reading this, but that all ended as soon as I started reading Red Handed. I read it in one sitting, because frankly I couldn't put it down...I didn't want to put it down! Danielle and Master Cole sure know how to heat up the pages and keep me interested. There wasn't a boring moment in this book, the twist and turns that this author created renewed my passion in reading and gave me something to look forward to. This author will now be on autobuy for me. Thanks for an amazing read!
