"A blade in your hand now. A blade in your heart, or back, later."

Here I sit two days after reading Bad Deeds by Lisa Renee Jones, still SPINNING from this whirlwind of a romantic suspense that STUNNED me SPEECHLESS. My mind is still stuck in this story, wrapped up in this mastery of words that OWNED ME. Bad Deeds still OWNS every ounce of me.

Bad Deeds is smolder, scandal, and sin that seduces the senses while wrapping you in a web of suspense full of thrilling twists and turns. This

Lisa Renee Jones definitely turned up the intensity for this installment of the Dirty Money series. Each quiet moment slowly lulled me into a sense of contentment when I should have been preparing for the other shoe to drop. And let me tell you... LRJ drops MANY shoes!! The cartel has brought the heat, the family has somehow come together, and Shane and Emily are stronger than ever.

Fuck fuckity, fuck fuck FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And this is how Lisa Renee Jones destroyed you.


"This is a group of family and acquaintances, but one other thing superseded all. We are enemies."

Bad Deeds is vicious, unforgiving, ruthless and oh so enthralling. The feels people, THE FEELS. Just like in Damage Control, Bad Deeds has a LOT going on. And when I say a lot, I mean a fucking LOT.

Oh no she didn't!

Yes, she did. She left me hanging. But damn, it was good. The suspense was addictive and the office sex was H-O-T! The puzzle pieces are connecting and the picture is becoming clearer. But by no means is it finished.

There are villains at work trying to take over the Brandon empire. But Shane has worked too hard to keep it in the family to let that happen. Even though he doesn't approve of the way his father and brother have handled business in the past, he wants to preserve
I LOVED IT! This was a GREAT addition to this suspenseful and sexy series! Although, it's not over yet, Lisa Renee Jones did a tremendous job at keeping me interested in this world and these amazingly complex characters. We start BAD DEEDS right where we left off, but no worries if it's been a while, because the author gives us a quick down and dirty summary at the beginning of this book. Needless to say this is NOT a standalone novel. This is book three in Jones' sensual and mysterious Dirty Mo ...more

We're back in Denver with Shane Brandon and his Emily!

Lisa tells us all about the 2nd book again at the beginning of this 3rd 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.
We're at dinner with Shane's family. And things are not really going all that well.
But Shane needs to know what his dad and his brother have planned.
He is still trying to save the family name. And keeping Emily safe while doing that.

Holy Cliffhanger Batman! This is the worst one yet.

Emily and Shane are great. Their relationship is growing. There's lots of drama going on with his family and the cartel. It was nice to get more insight into Derek and Teresa's relationship. Plenty of sexy times with sparks flying between Jessica (Shane's assistant) and Cody (Emily bodyguard)...can they please hook up?

Then there's a horrible cliffy. The ones at the end of the first two books weren't that bad...this one is

I don't really feel like having an intro paragraph, so let's just jump into it. Off the bat, Hard Rules, the first book in this series, I thought was a book with a lot of information and so many questions. Following up to that, Damage Control was along the same lines, but also a lot more intense in that there was conflict and action. The characters were actually moving and fighting and a whole bunch of awesomeness going on at once. Then onto Bad Deeds, I feel like we've gone back around to the f ...more

If you read my reads of Damage Control (Dirty Money, #2), then you know I was expecting a lot to happen in Bad Deeds. Well, I can say I was not disappointed. There was so much that happened in Bad Deeds and it was all so good! I really enjoyed getting to know more about Derek and Teresa in this book. We even get a few chapters that are told from their points of view. My heart truly goes out to Teresa and her situation.

Immediately following the events in Damage Control, Shane Brandon is having a weak moment, his feelings for Emily and for his parents are leaving him unfocused. The desire to get Brandon Enterprises away from the cartel and back into the green is stronger than ever, he's desperate to save the business, and to find a way to save his girl and his family in the process. Even when they find a moment to sneak away for an erotic moment, Emily can tell is haunted by the what ifs and she fears he'll cha ...more

Gah! That ending!!! This series has had me on edge. I can not wait for the next book. That ending was a huge cliffhanger and I need the book now!

I'm loving this series. There is so much going on, so many enemies and yet some may not be enemies. I'm trying to figure out who is playing who. Not only do we have Shane's insane family all pitting against each other but then we got the involvement of the mob.

I'm fascinated with how Shane is trying to work every angle to clean up the company while st

Lisa Renee Jones is back at it again with her third installment to the Dirty Money Series, with Bad Deeds. While this book can’t be read as a standalone, Jones did a terrific job in refreshing our memory with pieces of vital information and flashbacks that occurred in the last book so readers like myself won’t feel lost. With her sexy and suspenseful prose, Jones did a fabulous job in creating a story that heighten our senses as we are thrus
Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

I was totally intrigued when I read the blurb for Bad Deeds. As I was reading the story and Shane became darker and darker and Emily tried her best to keep him from becoming something and someone he never wanted to be, I understood. Or, at least I thought I did. Lisa Renee Jones has given us a cliffhanger beyond cliffhangers. Surprised, stunned, shocked … that doesn’t even begin to describe what I felt when I read the last paragraph in Bad Deeds. Now, let’s see where this amazing author takes us

This can't be the end ... it just can't. This installment of the Dirty Money series is just too damn good to end. It ends with a maybe cliffhanger and I wasn't ready for the end when it thumped me in the forehead.

The Brandon family is the perfect combination of good, bad and everything in between. Shane the ever sexy younger Brandon brother proves why he is at the top of the pack and Pops aka daddy Brandon proves why he is a low down dirty so-in-so. Big brother Derek proves that their is a heart

Sizzling suspense…

This was the third book in the series and I am hopelessly addicted! Shane and Emily hit their stride in this instalment as their relationship was more solid than ever. A good thing as the forces around them were only getting more sinister and deadly…

Enemies were abundant but not all of them were far away. Shane’s family was unbelievably driven to succeed. Money, power. It was hard to say which one held the upper hand as they each were working their own unique angle. Shane knew

“You aren’t my weakness,” he says softly, but somehow vehemently. “You’re just the opposite. You’re the complete contradiction to everything that is this family, and you remind me of the change I’m fighting for.”

I received an ARC of this through Netgalley for my honest review. This was an awesome third installment in the story of Shane and Emily. Secrets, betrayal, intrigue abound. Finally it looks like Shane has figured a way to get out of the mess his family has created for him and he and Emily will have their happy ever after...and then WHAM here comes a killer cliffhanger, and a note from the author that just adds to the need to see how this all turns out.
Sissy's Romance Book Review
'Bad Deeds' by Lisa Renee Jones is book Three in the "Dirty Money" series.  This continues the story of Shane and Emily from the previous books. With that said, I do feel you need to read each book to full enjoy this series and their story.  But if you choose not to do so.. Ms. Jones does make it easy to catch up.  I have just enjoyed the series and hate for you to miss anything!  Also, this book does end with a cliffhanger to set you up for the next installment in their story.

Kaytlyn (The Bohemian Bookworm)

So Bad Deeds is the third book in the Dirty Money series. This is most definitely a series that you have to read in order as it follows Emily and Shane throughout the whole series. If you are looking to start this series, which I would highly recommend, the first book is Hard Rules (you can find my review here), and then the second book is Damage Control (you can find my review for that one here).

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 pa
5 "Bad Deeds have redeeming qualities" Stars

Lisa Renee Jones keeps making magic out of her writing. Bad Deeds is no exception. And this ride with the Dirty Money series is such a wicked one.

Bad Deeds is a book about secrets, jealousy, family drama, and also finding redemption in the person we least expect it from. But we do know that love can conquer and find a way to change who we are for the better. I could not be more engrossed in this book and in this series. That is why I will let you in on

The third installment of the Dirty Money series has been the best one yet! I was riveted to the page, watching all the chess pieces move in this very dangerous and deceitful game with very real consequences.

Shane Brandon continues to be the hero we love, and Emily is the level-headed and caring heroine. Throughout the novel, readers get to see these two become stronger together, and it seems the more difficult the world becomes

We're more than halfway through this series now. Book #3 and we're deep in the belly of the beast. It's like trying to watch a game of chess unfold through a thick fog of deception, while flames are closing in on you from every side. There are so many players in this game, so you really need to concentrate to keep track of them all, especially when some of them make unexpected moves and seem to transform like a chameleon.

Whoa, this is one suspenseful amazing series. Just when I think there can't possible be more to uncover SURPRISE. I love it. I love the corporate world this series it set in and I love Shane and Emily, I'm even starting to like Shane's brother...a little.

This is an expertly woven tale of deceit, betrayal, manipulation, corporate corruption and so much more.

Lisa Renee Jones certainly knows how to make a reader hang on her every word. I had a rocky start with this book. At the beginning of chapter 6, I was mentally rating this book a 3 and feeling kinda disappointed. I don't consider a 3 bad, just average, and Lisa Renee Jones is NOT an average writer.

Shane's internal monologues were what was really killing my enjoyment and brought me out of the story because they felt flowery and false. After awhile I wasn't noticing them anymore, so I

Bad Deeds was a fast-paced and exciting read, with a monumental cliff-hanger that left me breathless and incredulous.

Review - (un)Conventional Bookviews
Following straight after the ending of Damage Control, Bad Deeds is faster paced, and because I have gotten to know the characters much better, I was more involved as well. The danger is stronger, as is the rivalry between family members, until something happens to make a change. Emily is put in extreme dan
