Well, lot of things went down in Damage Control. Most importantly, Shane got the truth about Emily. He knows about the Hacker group The Geminis.  The events are being unfolded like episodes of a tv series you must tune in each week to watch. What’s around the corner promises to be worth the wait in

Bad Deeds (Book 3)    read more

Shane is now knee deep in a cycle of violence and betrayal. Although he tries to maintain a normal relationship with Emily he is drawn deeper into the corrupt family business his brother Derek has laid at his doorstep.

We are left wondering how the sins of the father will play out. Brandon Senior is emerging as a sympathetic and even admirable character. Why you ask? He respects Emily and maybe protecting her too? Derek is vile. There is no other way to express my feelings for him.
What keeps me turning the pages is Shane’s response to Emily. He cares for her deeply. He wants to protect her. He respects her. What ever she needs he wants to provide. End of. Shane Brandon is the perfect romantic hero.
Book 2 is gripping and does not disappoint. We have lust and betrayal. Emily’s hacker storyline is given less weight but it will leave you riveted and patiently waiting.

Wall Street meets the Sons of Anarchy in Damage Control, the smoldering, scorching next novel in the explosively sexy Dirty Money series.

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.
