Wall Street meets the Sons of Anarchy in Hard Rules, the smoldering, scorching first novel in the explosively sexy new Dirty Money series from New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones.

How bad do you want it? 

The only man within the Brandon empire with a moral compass, Shane Brandon is ready to take his family’s business dealings legitimate. His reckless and ruthless brother, Derek wants to keep Brandon Enterprises cemented in lies, deceit, and corruption. But the harder Shane fights to pull the company back into the light, the darker he has to become. Then he meets Emily Stevens, a woman who not only stirs a voracious sexual need in him, but becomes the only thing anchoring him between good and evil.

Emily is consumed by Shane, pushed sexually in ways she never dreamed of, falling deeper into the all-encompassing passion that is this man. She trusts him. He trusts her, but therein lies the danger. Emily has a secret, the very thing that brought her to him in the first place, and that secret could destroy them both.

This is book ONE of FOUR in Shane and Emily's story.

Opening line
"Tequila and tonic number two," I say, setting the drink on top of a Martina's Casa napkin for the dark, good-looking stranger who'd come in asking for my brother. 

Emily has a past she's on the run from someone, and she's changed everything about herself creating a cover story that will keep her safe. It's in the coffee shop before her interview that she encounters Shane instantly the pair share a spark. The pair instantly form a quick connecting but Emily is determined to keep it no strings attached but somethings you just can't avoid.

Shane can't deny his attraction for Emily but after an amazing night, she disappears from his life till she turns up at his office working for his father. He's just returned home to make his family business legitimate if only his brother and father were on his side. As Shane finds out just how deep his families dark deals are will he be able to keep Emily safe? 

I've had this one on my kindle for a while and I was really excited to make it fit for my current reading challenge. Hard Rules is a dark steamy story full of romance, suspense and a just enough action to keep you on the edge of your seat. I had a hard time putting it down once I was drawn into Emily and Shanes world, and couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next. 

This was my first book by the author and I'm hooked, her writing style is smooth easy to get drawn into a captivating story. The characters are easy to connect with you can't help loving Emily and Shane as they struggle to survive. I can't wait to see how the series is going to play out and I need to know that it will all work out.
