Wall Street meets Sons of Anarchy in Hard Rules, the smouldering, scorching first novel in the explosively sexy Dirty Money series from New York Times bestseller Lisa Renee Jones, author of theInside Out series.
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.
Claire's Review 3 of 5 Stars
Hard Rules is the first in a 4 book series.
Shane is the good guy caught in the family business of lies and deceit. Emily is the one hiding a secret that could destroy them both. A good read which keeps you turning the page, however, I really struggled with Shane and Emily's relationship and didn't feel much chemistry between them. I also found Emily's POV very irritating at times.
Lots of loose ends left that I hope will be answered in the next book of the series,
