Wall Street meets the Sons of Anarchy in the smoldering, scorching first novel in the explosively sexy new Dirty Money series from New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones.
How bad do you want it?
The only man within the Brandon empire with a moral compass, Shane Brandon is ready to take his family's business dealings legitimate. His reckless and ruthless brother, Derek wants to keep Brandon Enterprises cemented in lies, deceit, and corruption. But the harder Shane fights to pull the company back into the light, the darker he has to become. Then he meets Emily Stevens, a woman who not only stirs a voracious sexual need in him, but becomes the only thing anchoring him between good and evil.
Emily is consumed by Shane, pushed sexually in ways she never dreamed of, falling deeper into the all-encompassing passion that is this man. She trusts him. He trusts her, but therein lies the danger. Emily has a secret, the very thing that brought her to him in the first place, and that secret that could that destroy them both.
The book is a cliffhanger, so it is really difficult to review this without spoiling the events of the book as well as the cliffhanger.
Shane and Emily are both very interesting, and from the beginning of their story, you are interested to see where it will go and how it will evolve.
The pacing in the book was strong overall, but there were areas in the book that I felt dragged a little or were a little long, however I think this was also a set-up for the cliffhanger, which I will not reveal.
I often like the 2nd book in a series better than the 1st, as there is more resolution in the 2nd, and I am fairly certain this will be the case with this.
I recommend this book and I am looking forward to the next one in the series.
