I don't even know here to begin with this. Lisa has a knack for crafting stories that you become so lost in, that once you get to the end it hits you like a 2x4 to the face. This book? She shot me. I turned that last page and was gasping. I actually thought this was the perfect ending. I know people hate cliffhangers, but this one felt right. Shane and Emily are in the thick of it. This book picks up exactly where the last left off and from there everything begins to unravel. Secrets are revealed and alliances are made. Some of these, like me, you will see coming. Others, you will be chocked just as much as I was and HOPEFULLY as excited as I am! Things are getting twisted and in the greatest ways. Also, we need to talk about Derek. I know. Everyone hates Derek. I mean, I HATED him too. Until about 30% into this book. Then Lisa does that THING that she likes to do and you and up really liking the guy you hated even though he's still not a good guy. See what I mean? All situations, or most, are subjective, and the same goes for people. This is something that translates fantastically into Lisa's worlds. THEN we have my white knight. Shane wants so badly to protect those he loves, but how deep is he going to go to do that. How many decisions is he never going to be able to take back. UH! This book was really great. It had the romance, it had the suspense, and it had the down and dirty of these business deals. I can't wait to see where the next book takes us. Totally worth the wait.


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....
