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.

reviewHard Rules is my favorite book by Lisa Renee Jones to date. This book is fantastic! Between the secret that Emily is hiding and the drama with Shane’s family, I was intrigued, enthralled and completely riveted by the plot. Lies, deception, sex, manipulation, this book has it all.

“You, Emily, are a contradiction I cannot wait to explore.”

Shane is absolute perfection. I fell hard for him. Sweet, domineering, intense, with a hint of vulnerability. He is my idea of the perfect Hero.

“Maybe I can do this. Maybe he’s the light at the end of what has been a dark tunnel.”

Emily is still an enigma. Her secrets a mystery to the reader. This is where the plot thickens. Through Lisa’s writing you are left to question whose side Emily is on, if any. Overall, the chemistry built between Shane and Emily is intense. I’m dying for Damage Control (book #2). I need answers.

Great first book of a series, one that I will try and wait patiently for. Patience really isn’t my thing. I think everyone needs to meet Shane Brandon. Read this book, fall in love, and tell your friends.
