I'll admit, I was a little hesitant when first opening Damage Control because for the life of me, I couldn't remember some of the details in Hard Rules. It had just been too long since I had read the first book! I felt awful and was trying to figure out how I could schedule in a reread during my hectic life and was getting a little flustered. I figured, 'what the heck? I'll just start reading and see how it goes.' THANK YOU LISA! At the beginning of Damage Control, there's not only a brief recap ...more

Shane Brandon.


And his Emily of course!
Lisa tells us all about the first book again at the beginning of this 2nd book. Which is so mega-amazing for us Bookalzheimer-Sufferers! I loved that.

The book starts in the same moment we left them last time. Brandon just found out that Emily has been telling him lies about herself.
But she's not ready to tell the truth. The truth could hurt or even kill herself and Shane.
But Shane doesn't yet believe that her secrets a

The people closest to you can hurt you the most.

After Shane confronts Emily for the false presentation she acted upon making him believe she was a spy working against him, Emily can't explain it by telling him the truth about her background and what she's actually running from, cause she wants to protect him from it. She runs away, but she's desperate, lost and alone and Shane „feels“ that even though Emily hides the truth from him, is not really working against him nor

Lovers of torrid family dramas, steamy romances, and mysterious backgrounds to slowly reveal and solve, will enjoy the second installment in the Dirty Money Series, Damage Control. Please note though that this series must be read in chronological order, so if you have not yet read Hard Rules, please see my review for that title as this review may contain spoilers for that debut book in this series.

Lisa Renee Jones has done it again! She has brought to life a story that is suspenseful and romantic, and one that is extremely hard to put down. Honestly, this book consumed me from beginning to end. And, while I hate the idea of having to wait for the next book in the series (this is on me NOT the author >> I am just impatient in general) I gladly will if she keeps pushing them out like this one.

Readers, make sure you read Hard

Ahhhhh!!!!! Lisa Renee Jones never ceases to amaze me as she continues to knock out another amazing seductive romantic suspense in the second installment to the Dirty Money Series. In Damage Control, Lisa continues to lead her readers down the proverbial rabbit hole of suspense, mystery, chicanery,and passion. With her mastery and virtuosity of words, Jones will define the hard rules of trust, duplicity, and love as she takes reign of

Loooved the first book, but this one kind of bored me to tears. I understand there has to be suspense and mystery but it felt like the book dragged along just to be a little dramatic.
I don't know, maybe I'll come back to it sometime.

OH MAN! OH MAN! OH MAN! This was SO FREAKING GOOD! I am REALLY enjoying this series from the amazing Lisa Renee Jones. I didn't think she could top her INSIDE OUT SERIES, but HOT DAMN, The Dirty Money Series is raising the bar on romantic suspense for sure! DAMAGE CONTROL is book two in this intense and intricate sexy series, and it must be read after HARD RULES. If you don't like cliffhangers, walk away now. This series is not for you.

Firstly, thank you Ms Jones for the run down at the beginning of the book, reminding us of what happened in Hard Rules - my terrible bookzheimer's really appreciated it!

We are dragged straight back into the Brandon world with Damage Control, and it is full throttle from the first word to the last.

This one starts about 6 seconds after Hard Rules ends. This is a good thing if you have read Hard Rules, as you want to know what in the world is going on.

Now is a good time to mention, this is not a standalone. You do have the author, thanks for this, in the notes at the beginning, give a sum up of what has happened. But it is a sum up and you are in no way ready to start the ride at this one.

And, what a ride. With spoilers around every corner.

Damage Control picks up at the exact moment Hard Rules ends, Lisa provides a comprehensive recap at the beginning of the book so readers can enter the story with the same amount of trepidations and tension they had at the end of the previous one, lol.

Shane is confused and angry at Emily's secrets, his feelings are exaggerated due to the continued manipulation he has experienced at the hands of his family. His reactions are emotional and explosive, the complete opposite to his usual calm, control

In this continuation of Wall Street meets the Sons of Anarchy in Damage Control, the smoldering, scorching next novel in the explosively sexy Dirty Money series is just wow omg wow!!!

There is just something about a true powerfully hot alpha male, with that wonderfully protective soft side that falls hard for a strong willed, stubborn and not submissive woman that just rings all my bells!!!

“The people closest to you can hurt you the most.”

Damage Control is the second book in the Dirty Money trilogy and I seriously cannot wait for book three, Dirty Deeds. Damage Control begins where Hard Rules left off with Shane and Emily’s relationship up in the air as the proverbial “who to trust” is constantly batted to and fro. Everyone in this book has their own agenda, some good and some bad but from what we know so far, the ba

Shane thinks she's there to ruin him, to take part in his family problems, but she just wants to protect him, from herself and the secrets she runs from.

This is the second book in the Dirty Money series and picks up straight after where the first book, Hard Rules, ended.

The power control between the two Brandon brothers continues for control of their father’s empire. Derek being in the dark murky world of corruption and Shane, trying to pull the business away from the shady side. There is a lot more of the story that unfolds but the suspense and tension continues. Shane, never having anyone to trust is conflicted with his feelings for Emily. He

First and foremost, if you have not read Hard Rules, DO NOT READ Damage Control until you have. This book picks up right after Hard Rules ends and it gives you a spoiler recap. This review will be pretty short and simple in order not to give away any spoilers for either book.

No more secrets...

When the entirety of your life is a twisted chess match, secrets can be helpful or detrimental. In corporate takeover...In waging a war on drugs...In a relationship that is oozing lies...

Who knows where no more secrets will land them? Shane and Emily are on a path that neither saw coming. What was supposed to be a one night stand is very much more. But both of them have secrets, and both of them are hiding.

Will they reveal the darkest parts? Is it easier to lie? Or walk away?

This book picks up immediately from the ending of the previous book, Hard Rules . Shane wants answers and he wants them now, but Emily isn't quick to reveal her secrets.  It doesn’t help that Shane has a lot of shady dealings going on with his business leaving Emily with questions of her own.
