Hard Rules: A Dirty Money Novel by 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.
Oh. My. Goodness. Hard Rules is such a fabulous book that I am not even sure where to start. Shane Brandon is a sexy, rich, smart man who is fighting to be good when he is surrounded by his corrupt family. Emily has her own demons and secrets to battle and keep hidden from Shane, for his own protection. Shane is sexy, protective, and full of motivation, which makes him even more attractive. Emily is sweet, protective, and has a take-no-BS type attitude that is so similar to my own, I can’t help but love her character. Jessica has to be my favorite though. She is strong, independent, protective, and a loyal tell-it-like-it-is type of girl.
I am still not sure how Shane grew up to be a good man with parents like his and I have a feeling I will wonder the same about Emily, once we find out more about her past and who she really is. All of you 50 Shades of Grey fans can keep your Christian Grey, I’ll gladly take Shane Brandon for myself.
The only thing I didn’t like about Hard Rules is there won’t be more until book 2 is released in Feb. 2017! How will I survive?
