Title: Damage Control
Author: Lisa Renee Jones
Series: Dirty Money #2
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 sights on his company, his family, and the one piece of leverage they believe he won’t gamble with: Emily.
Damage Control is the second book in the Dirty Money series if you want to see my review for the first one, Hard Rules, find it here.
So Damage Control picks up right where Hard Rules left off. Shane has just pieced some very important things together about Emily and wants some answers. So as the storyline picks up we follow Emily and Shame through some continuing struggles, both within their relationships and with their families. I did enjoy this book, although maybe not as much as the first one. Damage Control had a case of the “second book syndrome”. We got to discover more about the two MC’s and their background, especially Emily. However, I felt like this book was a little bit more filler. I really did enjoy reading and discovering some of the secrets of what led Emily and Shane on the path to where they are now (no spoilers for you guys!!). I just wish that this one had been just as explosive as the first.
I am highly anticipating the 3rd book in this series Bad Deeds, and it is on my TBR for July. I have heard great things so I can’t wait. I hope it is a little bit more exciting than this one!
