Bad Deeds Lisa Renee Jones read online review & book description:

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.

  • On the edge of my seat

    By Asondra_Smiles
    Talk about holding me over the edge the entire time. Loved the cliffhanger. Left me wanting more and more.
  • The promise of this story is finally fulfilled for me

    By glhince
    The promise of this story is finally fulfilled for me: the tension, growth and repeated twists and turns were perfectly timed and kept me glued to the story until the end. And while there still is no real resolution on the overall conflict, so many things surprised and delighted me with this story: and many of the questions and concerns that I had from the earlier installments, new questions appeared, and surprisingly I found some kinder feelings for a formerly despicable character. This is not a series that is yet complete, and as each book picks up where the last left off – you need to read these in order. But, this is my favorite of the three so far, and I am finding myself desperate for the next and final. See, Emily and Shane are still growing closer and their moments together are full of that emotion and sweetness. The kindness and caring that they show for one another, the steam that emanates from them, and even the reliance on the presence and quiet moments together adds yet another layer to their already palpable connection. But Shane and Derek are still jockeying for control of the family company, but something surprising happens: I found that with a bit more insight into Derek that I was feeling something more than an abject skin crawl when he appeared. No, he has not reformed, or become even marginally more intriguing, but add in some backstory and give him reasons why he chose the path he now walks, and I could see more of him beyond the ‘ick’ factor. Oh, I still don’t love him by any stretch, but you see how a situation can be viewed and responded to differently depending on personality. Quiet moments are quickly shattered with the next twist and the constant up and down keep readers in a constant state of tension. Extrapolate that to the characters (yes I know it’s fiction) and the emotions are heightened even further, demanding that the page be turned to see what other changes and twists are to come. With yet another ending that had me wailing nooooooo (quietly in my head, mostly) the story still has a few questions left to answer, and undoubtedly more challenges before the end. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
  • Deliciously Addictive!

    OMG! I could not put this fantastic story down! This was a fast paced, all consuming, intense fight for control that was addictive, commanding, dangerous and passionate. Bad Deeds continues this dangerous journey that will leave you obsessively turning the page, desperate to devour every brilliantly crafted word looking for the answers to all the secrets. The intrigue, the passion, and the sex is off the charts but as the danger escalates no one is safe. The players are many, all wanting to take over the Brandon empire. The Martina Cartel is not giving up, and as these dangerous desperate men assert their power, will Shane and Emily’s bond survive? Will their deep connection keep Shane in the light or will the darkness overtake him? As we get a look into Derek and Teresa’s dynamics and finally see a new side to Derek, is he showing us all of his cards? Will Brandon senior find a miraculous cure for his cancer? Will Emily’s new endeavors help Shane save the Brandon Empire? This was simply perfection, with its’ suspense, betrayal, danger and intrigue, as well as twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Filled with Power, Control and Passion that is erotically intense and consuming. Warning, there is a gut wrenching cliffhanger of an ending! Leaving the reader frustrated and flabbergasted with more questions that will have to wait till the final book in this series. You don’t want to miss this series! Loved it! Get your book now! Lisa Renee Jones amazing talent shines blindingly bright in this masterpiece of a series and I cannot wait for the final book, End Game. I received an ARC through the author and publisher via NetGalley in exchange for a honest review!

    I can't. No. Omg. I need to know what happens next. PRONTO!
  • Omg!!!

    By Hayley Cliatt
    Holy cow!! This is such an amazing series! I need answers to so many questions! I'm on the edge of my seat to see how this all will end!
  • Awesome Series!!!

    By ~Mindy Lou~
    Gah! That ending!!! This series has had me on edge. I can not wait for the next book. That ending was a huge cliffhanger and I need the book now! I'm loving this series. There is so much going on, so many enemies and yet some may not be enemies. I'm trying to figure out who is playing who. Not only do we have Shane's insane family all pitting against each other but then we got the involvement of the mob. I'm fascinated with how Shane is trying to work every angle to clean up the company while staying true to himself. Then we still have to deal with Emily's past that is going to come back to haunt her at any moment. With as much that's going on in this series, the relationship between Shane and Emily is very much front and center in this story. I love how much we get to see these two work together against all the obstacles in their paths. The more that Adrian Martina is involved, the more I'm intrigued by him. I really hope he gets his own book. And lets not forget about Seth, Nick and Cody. They are all so intriguing that I want more! Lisa Renee Jones has outdone herself with this series. I love how she makes a bad boy good! I need End Game in my greedy little hands ASAP! ARC provided by NetGalley.
  • Amazing

    By bh313@hotmail
    It's official! This author is trying to kill me with these cliffhangers! This book definitely has the biggest of all. This is another incredible installment of the Dirty Money series. Shane and Emily have come to terms over her lies and deceit but the Brandon family drama is kicking in to full gear. Shane may be the master of the game when it comes to his family but with everything on the line will the cost be too much?? Don't miss this one but note - This series must be read in order for you to have any idea what's going on. The list of characters is long and the games people are playing is just as long. Don't miss one exciting moment. Now I sit and wait for the next book!!
  • What an ending cliffhanger!!!!!!

    By tsmb02(Sue G.)
    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!

    I don't even know where to start... Ms Jones slays it again. Shane and Emily are caught in the web of the Martina cartel. Shane is determined to find a way out of the situation where he and Emily are safe and together and his family business remains just that. Ms Jones has proven herself to be a master chess player in the way she spins a tale. Shane has proven to be a master chess player in the world she has created for him. He somehow manages to see the whole situation and how people can be moved to interact and further his cause. I really appreciate how much more I care about the secondary characters after this title. They become more central to the story in the way they can be played off each other. I can't recommend this series more highly. I'm DYING to read the next installment... This one ends on one H-E-L-L of a cliffy. Thank goodness I have a few of Ms Jones's titles I haven't read yet to keep me company until End Game comes out! I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review.
