Hard Rules (Dirty Money, #1)

Hard Rules (Dirty Money #1) by Lisa Renee Jones

Release Date: 09/08/16

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.



3.5 Hard Rules Stars on Goodreads, Read from August 18 to 22, 2016 

When I heard Lisa Renee Jones had a new series coming out I jumped on to it straight away. I’ve
read some of her other books and loved them. After reading the blurb, I have to say I was intrigued by the sexy and dangerous story, it was right up my alley.

“It’s time for some rules?”
“Rules? What rules?”
“Hard rules. And hard rule number one is, no more lies.”

On the whole, I was a little confused. We learnt a lot about Shane and his family. The back stabbing and the lies. We heard very little about Emily’s past. She drove me insane a number of times when she talked about how she couldn’t and shouldn’t be in a relationship with Shane. But then she was back in his bed in the next breath. The yo-yoing kinda drove me mad.

Over all though I was all over this book and I’m soooo looking forward to the next in the series.
