Wall Street meets the Sons of Anarchy in Damage Control, the smoldering, scorching next novel in the explosively sexy Dirty Money series.
The only thing more dangerous than a dark secret is a damaged heart…
Shane Brandon has been pushed to the brink, torn between his corrupt family and his explosive, all-consuming desire for Emily Stevens, who he now knows is not who, and what, she seems. Has he trusted the wrong person? Will she, not his brother Derek, be the ultimate destruction of his family Empire?
Emily tries to run from Shane, but he will stop her, confront her, force her to reveal all — one hot touch and kiss at a time, under every intimate detail of who this woman is, and what she wants, is exposed. But as he tears away the dangers of the unknowns with the woman in his bed, and in his heart, The Martina Cartel has set their sights on his company, his family, and the one piece of leverage they believe he won’t gamble with: Emily.

Book 2 in Dirty Money Series.
I simply devoured book 1 Hard Rules and loved where this story was going so I couldn’t get my hands fast enough of this continuation. There is so much going on in this part it made my head spin. And usually I love that and I did liked it but on some level it was maybe a bit too much and too confusing at times. Shane is struggling to get his family business back on track and free from all bad influences that his brother Derek brought into it. They are also fighting for who will be the one to take over the company due to their father’s illness and even though Shane doesn’t really want it, he also doesn’t want it to fall into Derek’s hand who would run it to the ground for sure.
Derek is determined to fight Shane on any decision possible and even test his relationship with Emily. And that includes him trying to dig into her past. But Emily is strong and used to be on her guard at all times except when it comes to her heart. She and Shane have a strong bound and not much could break it. But both have demons that haunt them and their will to protect each other from one another might break them apart without them even realizing it.
I wish that I loved this book as much as I expected and hoped for. But I guess we can’t have it all always. I liked but felt it was a bit too much happening at once and it was hard to follow and stay focused.
