My rating: 4 of 5 stars
HARD RULES is the first book in the Dirty Money series and reader: BEWARE of the CLIFFHANGER!! I imagine that most of us have secrets but wow! The members of the Brandon family have so many skeletons rattling in their closets, it’s a little hard to keep track of everything going on. Not to mention the secrets that Emily’s keeping. I feel like this book is simply laying the foundation for bigger and more devious things to come. But don’t get me wrong, it’s absolutely necessary to get this background on all the players, it’s just a tad bit tedious at times! Other than that, the relationship between Emily and Shane is passionate and erotic. The story is fast paced, action packed and the dialogue is smart and sassy. I’m genuinely eager to move on to the next book so some of these mysterious and cryptic secrets can be unburied! Told from dual POVs with a big, fat cliffhanger.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Just as crafty and “dirty” as the series title suggests!
Book two in the Dirty Money saga is just as crafty and “dirty” as the series title suggests! And just as the cover suggests, this is a book that has family members pitted against each other. It’s a deadly game of chess and everyone involved is in danger of losing. In this installment, the reader finally gets more insight into Emily’s crazy predicament. We also see how Shane becomes the rock that Emily can lean on. But when it comes to the underhanded, devious members of his family, it’s also clear that Emily is the glue that holds Shane together. And I have to say how much LOVE that! I absolutely adore a strong heroine who can hold her own not only within her relationship with Shane but also within the Brandon family and the Brandon company. In this book, Emily is the shining star! Just like in book one, this part has plenty of mystery, danger and intrigue but there’s still a lot of unanswered questions. The best part for me though was the strengthening, passionate (hot!) relationship between Shane and Emily. Told from dual POVs with a TO BE CONTINUED ending.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
GAH!! The cliffhang-ing torture! What can I say about book three in the Dirty Money series? Lisa Renee Jones has managed to capture me hostage in this sticky web of intrigue and deceit. It’s a dark, alluring, sexy story that keeps getting better and better with each book. Unlike with book two, which focused more on Emily’s problems, this one has the reader trying to untangle the Brandon family from the Martina cartel. But of course, LRJ still keeps the intensity high and the sex hot! I’ve mentioned before that I love the relationship between Shane and Emily and that hasn’t changed. These two strong characters bring out the best in each other. But what I haven’t said yet was how much I adore the secondary characters. Yes, even all the “evil” members of the Brandon family! It helps that we get a few chapters with Derek’s and Teresa’s POV which gives us a chance to connect better with these important players. This story is brilliantly written, layered with secret maneuvers and the strength of love. It’s a series that’s definitely making space on my READ AGAIN E-SHELF! Told from dual POVs with a nail biting, “OH MY GAWD” cliffhanger. I received, read and voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
Bad Deeds: A Dirty Money Novel by Lisa Renee Jones
Release Date: August 8th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Would you bleed for the one you love?
To save his family empire from the grip of the drug cartel, Shane is pushed to the edge of darkness, forced to make choices he might never make. His father is dying. His brother is desperate to rule the empire and this means war and all gloves are off. His brother only thought he knew what dirty meant. Shane is about to give it new meaning. There is another war brewing though, and that one, is inside him, his battle between right and wrong, light and dark, and in the heat of the night, it is Emily he turns to for escape. Driving her to new limits, pushing her to accept a part of him that even he cannot.
In every one of Shane’s seductive demands, Emily can taste and feel, his torment, his struggle to save his family and not lose himself. But he is losing himself, and that is a problem just as dangerous as her secret, that still lurk in the shadows, a threat to the Brandon Family waiting to erupt. No matter where she and Shane have traveled, or will travel in the future, she can’t just sit back and watch him become everything he hates, everything he never wanted to become, everything she tried to save him from when she tried to run. It could be their undoing, the end. His end.
This is war, blood will spill, and someone in the heart of the Brandon family will not survive….
“What is in your head right now?”
His eyes heat, darken. “You. Always.” He inches back and looks at me. “You’re mine. Mine to protect.” His voice is low, fierce, and he grips my panties and yanks them away. “Mine to fuck.”
I gasp and grab his shoulders. “Shane.”
His answer is to wrap his arm around my waist, pull me close, his cheek against mine, his fingers pressing into the V of my body. “Wet, just the way I like you,” he says, pressing two fingers inside me. “Wet for me. And too fucking perfect for my sanity sometimes.”
“That doesn’t sound like a compliment,” I pant out, grabbing the lapel to his suit as a sweet ache begins to build in my sex as his thumb strokes my clit.
“And no one else,” he murmurs, nipping my earlobe, “will ever touch you like this.” His fingers caress deeper inside me. “No one,” he adds, “will ever make you say their name like I want you to say mine right now. Say it.”
“Shane,” I whisper, and not because he wants me to, but rather because it’s there on my lips, the way I wish his tongue was on my lips now. “Shane, I—”
Seeming to know what I need, he cups my head and kisses me, long, slow, sensual strokes of his tongue that somehow make every touch of his fingers more intense.
“Come for me,” he murmurs, and this time when he kisses me, I start climbing that wall to release, and I’m there at the top in an instant. I stiffen while his fingers and tongue tease, please, and then I jerk, I’m over it, tumbling in an instant into shudders and shakes. Shane’s lips lift from mine as he breathes with me. His fingers slow as he eases me through the waves until I collapse against his chest.
He tangles his fingers in my hair and drags my mouth back to his. “And no one but me will ever make you come like that again,” he declares, the waves of his emotions beating down any embarrassment I might feel over having had an orgasm on his father’s desk.
“No one has ever made me feel what you make me feel, Shane.”
