Wall Street meets the Sons of Anarchy in Damage Control, the smoldering, scorching next novel in the explosively sexy Dirty Money series from New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones.
The only thing more dangerous than a dark secret is a damaged heart…
Shane Brandon has been pushed to the brink, torn between his corrupt family and his explosive, all-consuming desire for Emily Stevens, who he now knows is not who, and what, she seems. Has he trusted the wrong person? Will she, not his brother Derek, be the ultimate destruction of his family Empire.
Emily tries to run from Shane, but he will stop her, confront her, force her to reveal all – one hot touch and kiss, at a time, under every intimate detail of who this woman is, and what she wants, is exposed. But as he tears away the dangers of the unknowns with the woman in his bed, and in his heart, The Martina Cartel, has set their sites on his company, his family, and the one piece of leverage they believe he won’t gamble with: Emily.
This is book TWO of FOUR in Shane and Emily's story.
Jones continues the suspenseful Dirty Money series (Hard Rules) in this similarly hot and flawed second erotic novel, set against the large corporate backdrop of Brandon Enterprises in Denver. Emily Stevens and Shane Brandon build upon the foundation of their tempestuous love affair despite the secrets that both are closely guarding. Shane has discovered Emily's duplicity, something he cannot tolerate after surviving his own family's lies. But she has good reasons for not telling him the whole truth. The question becomes moot when a greater threat appears in the form of an encroaching drug cartel that threatens to topple Emily's new life and freedom, jeopardizing all of the ground Shane has gained in attempting to free the family name and fortune from the less-than-legal dealings brokered by his father and brother. As in the first installment, the intricate story suffers from repetitive prose. The mysteries of Emily's past should take center stage, but they're overshadowed by the Brandon family's sometimes clumsy machinations. Nothing about this book is subtle, but it remains a page-turner with scorching heat.
