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….
His eyes heat, darken. “You. Always.” He inches back and looks at me. “You’re mine. Mine to protect.” His voice is low, fierce, and he grips my panties and yanks them away. “Mine to fuck.”
I gasp and grab his shoulders. “Shane.”
His answer is to wrap his arm around my waist, pull me close, his cheek against mine, his fingers pressing into the V of my body. “Wet, just the way I like you,” he says, pressing two fingers inside me. “Wet for me. And too fucking perfect for my sanity sometimes.”
“That doesn’t sound like a compliment,” I pant out, grabbing the lapel to his suit as a sweet ache begins to build in my sex as his thumb strokes my clit.
“And no one else,” he murmurs, nipping my earlobe, “will ever touch you like this.” His fingers caress deeper inside me. “No one,” he adds, “will ever make you say their name like I want you to say mine right now. Say it.”
“Shane,” I whisper, and not because he wants me to, but rather because it’s there on my lips, the way I wish his tongue was on my lips now. “Shane, I—”
Seeming to know what I need, he cups my head and kisses me, long, slow, sensual strokes of his tongue that somehow make every touch of his fingers more intense.
“Come for me,” he murmurs, and this time when he kisses me, I start climbing that wall to release, and I’m there at the top in an instant. I stiffen while his fingers and tongue tease, please, and then I jerk, I’m over it, tumbling in an instant into shudders and shakes. Shane’s lips lift from mine as he breathes with me. His fingers slow as he eases me through the waves until I collapse against his chest.
He tangles his fingers in my hair and drags my mouth back to his. “And no one but me will ever make you come like that again,” he declares, the waves of his emotions beating down any embarrassment I might feel over having had an orgasm on his father’s desk.
“No one has ever made me feel what you make me feel, Shane.”
Bad Deeds by Lisa Renee Jones is book three in her Dirty Money series and it continues the story of Shane Brandon and Emily Stevens.
Starting where Damage Control (book two) left off, Shane Brandon is still trying to save his family’s company and remove it from being under the control of the Martina cartel.
Like a game a chess the players continue to try to stay moves ahead of each other and Shane doesn’t know who he can trust, especially when Adrian Martina increases the pressure of wanting a partnership with Brandon Enterprises. At the same time, Shane continues to try to get rid Brandon Pharmaceuticals.
Filled with action and suspense, as well as unexpected twists and turns especially in the end with a really nerve-wrecking cliffhanger that’ll leave you wanting book four as soon as possible.
I enjoyed Lisa Renee Jones writing and how she keeps the story moving and the reader invested in her story. It’s all about the characters. Story-arc wise, in my opinion while I read, there weren’t very big power-plays or game-changers until the last half. What developed and changed more for me this installment while reading were the people. Shane and Emily were the constants, and I loved their relationship and how strong it has grown. But what I really liked was that we got to know more about the other characters within the series such as Seth, Jessica, Cody, and even more of Shane’s family like Derek and Maggie. Ms. Jones has definitely added more on the line in the novel, by increasing the emotion and making us as readers feel more for the characters we saw previously only as villains, like Derek. It was interesting to see more to his character in this novel and his relationship with Teresa. I can’t wait to see what Ms. Jones has planned for the next novel.
Overall, Bad Deeds by Lisa Renee Jones is a great continuation to an exciting romantic suspense series. I look forward to reading the next book and more from Ms. Jones.
