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....

 

In the continuation of the Dirty Money series the danger to both Shane and Emily is creeping closer and becoming more nefarious.  What I love most about this series is that while there are multiple strings of plot between the dying father, Emily’s maybe criminal brother, the drug cartel connection and the family drama the plot is never convoluted.   While Ms. Jones untangles the web of lies and intrigue,  there is never a time where a reader loses the string of what is happening.

Shane steps up his game where Emily is concerned as he desperately tries to keep her from being exposed to the evil that is seeping all around them.  Emily, in turn, is determined to resist his protection and stand by the man she loves.  Both character’s continue to be strong, exerting their will on the world around them as the maze of power plays, secret dealings, and murky allies gets more twisted.

This is an excellent continuation of the Dirty Money series, though there will be one more after this so you will be left hanging… with a gasp.
