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.
This book has been on my radar for a while. I mean it is Lisa Renee Jones, but also the blurb and the cover just spoke to me!!! This is book 1 in her new A Dirty Money Series, dual POV.
Shane Brandon, highly successful attorney in NYC, returns home to clean up the mess that his family business’s became. His father is a master manipulator who enjoys pinning Shane and his older brother against each other as they fight for power. His loyalty to his ethically questionable family urges him on to wade into some murky waters while he tries to clean up the mess his family has created.
“Blood divides as easily as it unites, especially when money and power are involved.”
Enter Emily, he shouldn’t, he really couldn’t get involved with someone so different, “pure” especially as he is getting deeper and deeper involved with unethical business dealings.
They start off as a one night stand, one very hot and sexy night. They were supposed to be temporary, but Emily quickly becomes more, his light.
Emily has her own secrets though, secrets she is not wiling to share.
“Maybe I can do this. Maybe he’s the light at the end of what has been a dark tunnel.”
Will the budding, fragile relationship grow or fail as sinister elements come into play?
“It’s about knowing where your power comes from.”
Lisa gave us a book that will keep you engaged and looking for clues as the story unfolds. Lies, deceit, power and amongst it, two unlikely people falling for each other as lines get blurry and pushed. The suspense will make you want to turn the pages faster!!!
The sexual chemistry is of the charts hot between Shane and Emily. I really loved these two together but I’m worried when Emily’s secrets are finally revealed, will everything they built come crashing down around them?
Great start to this brand new series and I can’t wait to read more as their journey progresses!!
