As shocking twists, dark secrets, and explosive betrayals within the Brandon family come to the light, Shane must fight harder than ever before. But without Emily, he is no one…

With every desperate, powerful touch, Emily belongs to Shane. She has been found, but she still isn’t safe, and Shane will stop at nothing to keep her from harm. As they burn bright with passion, vengeance, and despair, the dangers they face grow closer and stronger. Emily has been opened up by Shane’s touch, saved by the dark intimacy he craves. But can Emily save Shane?

My Review

Rating : 4 out of 5 Stars

I finally got my hands on the ending of this story!  Lisa Renee Jones has woven layers upon layers of mystery in this fast paced, intricate and riveting romantic suspense, filled with page scorching heat. End Game picks where Bad Deeds left off. Obviously, this series should be read in order, but the author provides a very useful character and past plot summary at the beginning of the book.

Going into this book, I was on the edge of my seat! The cruel cliffhanger at the end of Bad Deed killed me! I don’t want to give anything away, but I found this final installment totally satisfying. The major puzzle pieces slowly fall into place and questions are answered, although there was room for more resolution, in my opinion. But the author did a great job of giving me the happily ever after I so wanted for Emily and Shane.

The writing style of Ms. Jones is utterly addicting, this final installment was an intense ride of suspense. I never can get enough of her fast-paced, sexy and compelling stories. This series has come to a conclusion, but I can’t wait to see what this author has in store next, starting with her next series “Poison Kisses”, featuring Seth Cage, Shane’s right-hand man and head of security at Brandon Enterprises.
