I just read this last night and nearly pulled an all-nighter. Of course, I put it down and slept so that I would be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed for classes this morning. But it was so good I couldn’t put it down.
Wall Street meets the Sons of Anarchy in Damage Control, the smoldering, scorching next novel in the explosively sexy Dirty Money series.
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 sights on his company, his family, and the one piece of leverage they believe he won’t gamble with: Emily.
Oh my dear lord, holy hell!!!!! I don’t even know where to start. This is the part where I normally would put my tweets on here, but I LITERALLY COULD NOT KEEP MY ATTENTION FROM THIS BOOK.
I greatly appreciate Miss Jones giving us a little description of all the characters. Also, it picks up right exactly where the HUGE cliffhanger ended. Which I’m really grateful for because it means we, the readers, don’t lose any time. Which is irritating when an author does that, at least to me.
Remember, in my review for Hard Rules, when I said that Emily was hiding something. Whoa! was she hiding something. No, seriously, it’s huge and if you want to know, well then I guess you’re going to have to get a copy. But can I just say how happy I am now that I know who she really is. Especially since she’s one of the main characters.
So I didn’t mention in the review for Hard Rules that there were a few mysterious characters in a prologue that I was so dang curious about. Those characters and what they have to do with the plot is just…. I have no words. I just can’t believe how many plot twist there were.
And that ending!!!!! Oh my goodness. I can’t believe Brandon Senior did that. But it sucks about what is happening to him. And why would he behave that way?
Can we talk about the nature of Emily and Shane’s relationship? It was seriously lust at first sight but then it evolves into something more. I still think they are still some of my favorite characters.
This series has become one of my favorites, and I hope you consider reading this novel. It’s full of beautiful moments between Emily and Shane, but also there are soooooo many moments that kept me on the edge of my seat, figuratively, of course, since I was laying down while reading.
