About this ebook

Wall Street meets the Sons of Anarchy in Bad Deeds, the smoldering, scorching next novel in the explosively sexy Dirty Money series from New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones.

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....

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 THREE of FOUR in Shane and Emily's story.

We're more than halfway through this series now. Book #3 and we're deep in the belly of the beast. It's like trying to watch a game of chess unfold through a thick fog of deception, while flames are closing in on you from every side. There are so many players in this game, so you really need to concentrate to keep track of them all, especially when some of them make unexpected moves and seem to transform like a chameleon. This book had me questioning everyone's motives. In the end, it all boiled down to a clear picture of where most of the players stood, leaving me hanging with a heart-stopping ending that has me desperate to find out what happens next. Since this is book three and giving a recounting of plot points would be silly, I'd like to give her praise for a couple of things. If you have read many of her books, like I have, you know by now that her plotting level is pretty much genius. The way the characters and events are intertwined combined with multiple clever and shocking plot twists require you to be fully engaged and alert. Her mental game is strong so you better be prepared to keep up. Of course, to accompany that, is a plentiful amount of passion, heat and chemistry. She leaves you wanting for nothing. Lisa is known for writing these intense and complex books, so naturally it takes time. There are often many months between books in a series. I read many books in a week, so remembering vivid details of every book I read is impossible. I deeply appreciate that she includes a summary at the beginning of the book to refresh my memory on previous events, so I can start reading the current book with a better memory of what happened.

This series sure knows how to mess with your you read this you are not sure who to believe! This is the 3rd book in the Dirty Money series and it picks up right where Damage Control left off. Shane Brandon is questioning who Emily Stevens really is. After Seth caught her in an uncompromising position, Shane doesn't know what to think. Emily doesn't want to reveal her true identity so she escapes from Shane but that doesn't last for long....he is quickly able to find her. After the two of them hash things out, they realize they need to be together and they both need to not hold back any more secrets. As the mess with Medina cartel continues to escalate, Shane is even more at odds with his brother, Derek. All the while, Brandon, Sr seems to be getting worse and worse in regards to his cancer. Emily starts to realize that Shane's thoughts and actions are starting to get darker and tries to reach through to his better side. Shane explains that he needs to hone his darker side to come out on top. Just when it looks like things are getting worse, Shane comes up with a solution that may help everyone. Too bad he didn't expect the loose cannon that shows up and throws everything into a tailspin. When all hell breaks loose, ends on a huge cliffhanger! I thought the previous book's cliffhanger was bad, but this one takes the case....and I have to wait until January for the next book! Ugh! I am really loving this series!
