What a staggering read! I'm completely addicted to this story, but especially to its lead characters, Shane Brandon and Emily Stevens. Simultaneously dark and incredibly sexy, tender, yet dangerous, savvy, smart and strong, their chemistry radiates straight off the pages and their story will quickly find its way into your heart.
Picking up exactly where Hard Rules left off, the suspense begins immediately, as Emily is forced to reveal her painful past, and a dangerous secret. Aware that she has been living in fear for her life, Shane vows to protect her, even as he struggles to save his family's dynasty from its self-inflicted spiral of corruption. The drama surrounding them simmers at the boiling point throughout the story, just below the surface, occasionally bubbling up to scare the bejeezus out of you, but always set to explode in all directions.
Damage Control is complex, full of twists and turns, heartbreaking betrayal and dangerous deceit. It will keep you guessing and holding your breath from beginning to end. (I know this because the activity app on my watch had to remind me to breathe a few times along the way.)
The stakes were high in Hard Rules, but they're even higher now, and Lisa knows exactly when and how to ratchet up the conflict to keep you on the edge of your seat. I'm hooked on the adrenaline rush I feel as the suspense builds around Brandon Enterprises and within Shane's wealthy, devious, dysfunctional family. I'm hooked on the fierce passion that Shane and Emily share, a passion that only intensifies as the tension increases and danger closes in.
Be aware, Damage Control not a standalone, and it's not the conclusion of the story. Thankfully, there's no dramatic cliffhanger that will make you toss your e-reader across the room, or send you off to rant at the author. It's more like a soft landing, a calm before the storm. Like Hard Rules, Damage Control skillfully moves all the pieces in place to push the story forward, toward what promises to be a gritty but thrilling climax. To me, it's the best kind of romantic suspense. I couldn't put it down, and I'm ready to read it again.
I'm counting the days until August 8th, when Bad Deeds (#3) releases. I'm desperate to know who makes it out of this story alive, and if the love that Shane and Emily share is strong enough to last when everything else falls apart around them. I'm holding out hope that the villains get their due, with minimal collateral damage, and that Shane and Emily find the happy-ever-after they deserve.
Don't deny yourself this smart, sexy, suspenseful treat. Start - or continue - the Dirty Money series today.
