⭐⭐⭐⭐! Damage Control, book 2 of 4. Shane & Emily must come clean about their secrets to gain the upper hand in a game over a fortune!

Let me start off by saying that although I rated this with five stars, I was really disappointed with Emily's secret. Am I really the only one? Seriously??? I mean... there was so much buildup to it... it caused so much tension between her and Shane... that when it was finally revealed I was like 'That's it?' I gather that it's a big deal and life-altering but... I was a bit let down. I hope this plays a bigger role in the book to come.

Anyho... that was my only issue with the ENTIRE story. It re

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

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.

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

The lies, secrets, intrigue and classic deception kept me turning the pages. Lisa Renee Jones has one hell of a storyline, but there's so much happening behind the scenes. The villains are straight forward so while at times there might be an air of boredom, if you follow the drama, pay close attention to the key players and all the fine details, this amazing author will not only capture your attention you won't be able to put the book down. At least I couldn't.

Book Review For: Damage Control Lisa Renee Jones 'Damage Control' by Lias Renee Jones is book Two in the "Dirty Money" series. This continues the story of Emily Stevens and Shane Brandon. I would recommend reading the previous book "Hard Rules" since that book starts their story. But, Ms. Jones did set this book up so that you could catch up to their story if you choose not to read the first book. Damage Control picks up right where Hard Rules ended. As we know Emily hasn't be honest with Shane ...more

This is turning out to be such an awesome series! There is so much going on that no one can claim to be bored. You've got two crazy families, the mob, FBI and a million secrets that are coming to light.

You will want to start with book 1, Hard Rules. Just a small recap, Emily and Shane hook up for a one night stand only to find out Emily's new job is at Shane's company. As these two kept getting drawn together, Emily realizes Shane is in the middle of a tug of war with the family business. Shane

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.

Well, goddamn... Talk about action packed! This was way more intense than Hard Rules, that's for sure! Plus, it started exactly where the first book ended, which is always great. I absolutely love the way Lisa Renee Jones does this on all her installments. She doesn't get readers confused or lost whenever they read the second or third book in the series. She eases you and guides you through it perfectly well. It won't hurt to reread the previous book before you dive into this one either, even if ...more

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.

Sex, Lies, and Deceit!!!

Awesome continuation from Hard Rules. I'm so addicted to this story, I haven't put it down. I can't wait for the next book in the series to be released.
So grab a copy and get ready to be sucked in to so much sex, lies , and deceit.

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

As the Dirty Money series continues, Lisa Renee Jones finally starts letting us in on some of the secrets that everyone is keeping.

I give Emily lots of credit in the 2nd Dirty Money Novel. She stands her ground with Shane and with Brandon Sr. She knows how to put Derek in his place and knows what she has to do to keep Shane’s mother on her side. What she doesn’t know is what Shane is keeping from her and it’s the one thing that may break her. She’s one strong, determined woman with a mind of he

I received an ARC of this book in preparation for the release of Book 3, for my honest review.

I absolutely love the dynamic between our two main characters, Shane and Emily. Yes, there are many many secrets that they both hold...or held. In this book, a whole boatload of those secrets and motivations come out. This couple is just amazing together. When the time comes for them to be truthful and open, they are, without hesitation, and I love how they trust each other so completely. And they have

I just finished Damage Control by Lisa Renee Jones and I’m still UTTERLY SPELLBOUND…SPINNING from the suspense where I’m still SPEECHLESS!!! I’m in a DREAMY DAZE. I can’t think straight. This story has not released my soul that is still swimming in a sea of suspense. My heart is still furiously beating out of my chest, racing like an Olympic runner.

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.

What is about walls or doors...? LOL.

Shane has a problem with it, but not me. Oh no! I love every time he presses Emily against a wall and frames her legs with his. Sighs.

Oh, sorry about that but I have to say it.

So about the book.

They say things get better in time. And Damage Control is no exception. Lisa Renee Jones grabbed my attention with Hard Rules. But with Damage Control, she has trapped me in a web of lies, power, control, and passion. And I don't see myself getting out of it.

There is even more action and danger in Damage Control than in the first book. Emily and Shane have a lot difficulties to deal with; most of it outside of their control.

Danger galore in Damage Control. And the familial relationships are more than tense. Emily is still keeping back part of herself, as she is too afraid her past will catch up with her and damage Shane. The plot moves forward nicely, and the pace is fairly eve

Great second book which of course ends in another blanket-y blanket cliffy. There's lots more drama and action and suspense and hot bedroom times. There are dead bodies, but not the ones I want. Man his family is still all kinds of messed up, and hers ain't much better. I'm liking this one way more than I ever did her series with Chris and what's her name.

In Damage Control (Dirty Money #2), Lisa Renee Jones does it again! Shane and Emily's story continues. Emily's true identity is revealed as well as the mystery surrounding her. I'll say I didn't see this one coming, but then again when I read Hard Rules (the first book in the series) I wasn't sure where Lisa was going with the story--and that is a good thing because it kept me glued to my kindle.

Again, I am a bit shocked at Emily's secret. It was a total surprise. Now besides her attraction for

Received an ARC for my fair review for netgalley. What can I say about this book, but Shane's family is crazy. This books, picks up from the cliffhanger it lefts us with, thank god. While Shane knew that Emily was lied to him, and was did not know everything, he wants to protect her. We find out Emily's secret, and how she is scared of telling Shane, that is could put him in danger, so she rather leave. So many crazy things happen, and yet again, we have a cliffhanger, so I guess we wait for the ...more

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.

So many twists and turns, you never know who or what to believe
