Damage Control picks up where Hard Rules left off. Shane confronts Emily with her lies. She isn’t the person she told him she was. Emily may have hidden her identity, Shane’s suspicion angers her. She is in trouble and she doesn’t want to expose him to danger by association. She is on the run and is targeted by a powerful international hacker organization. She can’t afford to get attention.
Even though she wants him to let her go, they have a bond that can’t be denied. Shane wants to finally get to know the true Emily, but doesn’t believe that she is his enemy. He is not worried by her secrets, but he can’t accept that she doesn’t trust him with her true identity and motivation. He never loses, and he won’t accept to lose her. Shane is in deep, he can’t stay away from Emily, and she doesn’t want him to.
Emily wants to be Shane’s partner, she is no damsel in distress. Shane has many enemies and is surrounded by people of double standards and opportunists. He could definitely use Emily’s help to find ways to clean up Brandon Enterprises. There is a strong rivalry between him and his older brother, to the point that they have become enemies in a battle to gain control of their family conglomerate. Shane intends to take the lead of the company, clean up the dark and dirty side of its business activities and put an end to his family’s connections with cartels.
Mystery, duplicity, white lies and scorching hot romance all come into play with this brilliant series by Lisa Renee Jones. But beware of the cliffhanger! The writing style of Ms. Jones is utterly addictive. I never can get enough of her fast-paced, riveting stories. I can’t wait for the next installment in this intriguing story, “Bad Deeds”.
