Product Description

Wall Street meets the Sons of Anarchy in Hard Rules, 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.

Excerpt from Hard Rules (Dirty Money book #1) coming Aug. 9, 2016

His hand curls around mine and he drags it to his knee, and the way he’s looking at me, like the rest of the room, no, the rest of the world, doesn’t exist, steals my breath. I haven’t allowed anyone to really look at me in a very long time.
“Emily,” he says, doing whatever he does to turn my name into a sin that seduces rather than destroys me.
“Shane,” I manage, but just barely.
“Did you say yes to dinner because you didn’t want to be alone?”
I am not sure where he is going with this, if it’s about reading me or if he needs validation that I am here for him, so I give him both. “I like being alone,” I say, and on some level, it really is true. “I said yes to dinner because you are the one who asked.” My lips curve. “Actually you barely asked. You mostly ordered.”
“I couldn’t let you say no.”
“I’m actually really glad you didn’t.”
“And yet you say you like being alone?”
“It’s simple and without complication.”
“Spoken like someone who’s lived the opposite side of the coin.”
“Haven’t we all?”
“Who burned you, Emily?”
I blanch but recover with a quick, “Who says anyone burned me?”
“I see it in your eyes.”
“Back to my eyes,” I say.
“Yes. Back to your eyes.”
“Stop looking.”
“I can’t.”
Those two words sizzle, matching the heat in his eyes, and my throat goes dry. “Then stop asking so many questions.”
He reaches up, brushing hair behind my ear, his fingers grazing my cheek, and suddenly he is closer, his breath a tease on my cheek, his fingers settling on my jaw. “What if I want to know more about you?”
“What if I don’t want to talk?”
“Are you suggesting I shut up and kiss you?”
Yes, I think. Please. But instead I say, “I don’t know. I haven’t interviewed you as you have me. I know nothing about you. I want to know if you—”
He leans in, and then his lips are on mine, a caress, a tease, that is there and gone, and yet I am rocked to the core, a wave of warmth sliding down my neck and over my breasts. He lingers, his breath fanning my lips, promising another touch I both need and want, as he asks, “You want to know if I what?”
Everything. “Nothing.”

Shane and Derek Brandon have been pitted against each other by their dying father ... as to who will take over Brandon Enterprises. Derek wants to follow in his father's footsteps and continue running the company on the illegal side of the business, while Shane wants to turn the company over to be legitimate. But with which brother does their mother's alliance fall? Shane doesn't trust anyone but his long time friend Seth ... that is until Emily.

Emily Stevens has her own secrets and cannot trust anyone. All she knows is that after Shane and her meet accidentally in a coffee shop, she should stay away from him and not drag him into to mess of a life. But when she ends up being Shane's father's secretary ... they cannot deny the sparks that fly between them and they start an affair that they both know can't last.

There are so many twist and turns in this book, it is hard to keep up ... but you just have to keep turning the pages to try and find the answers to all the questions. Only to find out that this mystery continues into the next book and I can't wait to start reading it.

Title: Hard Rules
Author: Lisa Renee Jones

5 amazing stars

Once again, Lisa Renee Jones has managed to completely captivate my attention with another of her novels. Hard Rules tells the story of Theresa, a girl whose brother is the right hand to her father's drug ring. Unable to handle the oppression, she disappears. We then meet Shane - a lawyer brought back from New York to come and try to legalize his family business that has turned corrupt under his dying father and brother's 'reign'. Only, trying to turn the companies around is proving a whole lot more difficult than he ever expected and the only bright light is Emily, the woman hiding a dark past and trying to protect all those around her from her secrets.

4.5 sexy dreams

I love how Lisa Renee Jones brings her characters to life. They feel so realistic that you can't help but follow them in their adventure and feel their emotions as though it were your own. Neither can you help wonder if there's a link between Emily and Theresa, then hope that whatever Emily is hiding that Shane will prove himself to be a man and stay by her side. Knowing that Hard Rules is part of a series, I can't wait to read the next installment to find out what will happen to these characters!

5 "Chris Merit needs to make room for Shane Brandon" stars!!

I absolutely loved Chris and wondered what kind of hero this series would have. LRJ did NOT disappoint. She found a way to create another phenomenal hero. Shane was honourable, dedicated, dominant, intelligent, charismatic, loyal, protective, and caring. And Emily really seemed to be his perfect match. She was loyal, smart, perceptive, secretive, sweet, and loving. These two together were combustible!

While enjoying a passionate relationship, these two had to navigate their way through the minefield that was the Brandon empire. It wasn't an easy road with Shane's family members each having their own agendas and each trying to manipulate their way to ultimate power.

This book had many elements I love such as mystery, secrets, suspense, bitter rivalry, betrayal, sexiness, and developing love.

It's obvious almost from the start that Emily has been holding on to a huge secret. A secret that she felt could seriously damage her relationship with Shane. I NEED book 2 so I can find out what that secret is!! And to watch Shane show Emily that she had nothing to worry about because he's just that awesome lol.

Lisa Renee Jones created another gem and this story was an incredible kickoff to her new series.

I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you NetGalley!

First off, I was very captivated by this read because of one character: Emily. Her story intrigued me and captured my attention from the first chapter. That being said, I wished the rest of the book had incorporated more of HER struggles and demons, and have been less about Shane's. Yes, I know Shane is integral to the story, but the beginning of the novel promised Emily's story, which we didn't get, so I am slightly disappointed...

Nevertheless, it was an entertaining read that I couldn't tear my eyes away from. That ending was a tease. OMG LISA, WHYYYYY???? We were getting somewhere *insert exasperated face* I waited a whole book to find out what happens/happened and then that!? *dies*

When is the sequel coming out? (Casually asks on the release date of the first one)

Anyways, this book was written in the Lisa Renee Jones style that I love, and I can't wait to find out the continuation. I literally CANNOT.

I just keep thinking about that ending. Man, I will keep thinking about it for weeks.
