So, first off, this review contains spoilers for Hard Rules! Be warned! But its spoiler free for Damage Control!
Damage Control is the second book in Lisa’s Dirty Money series, and wow what a sequel it was! I’ve read a few of Lisa’s books now and this series is definitely shaping up to by my favourite! I gave the first book 4.5 stars and this one a solid 4! I’d definitely recommend it – its the perfect mix of romance, mystery, and excitement. Go on, read it!
A little synopsis for you!
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.
The story picks up after the cliff hanger that Hard Rules left on – thankfully after that I could immediately pick this one up! There was a lot of character development going on in Damage Control, particularly for Emily. We found out a lot more about her past in this instalment of the series and, in my opinion, we saw a much stronger side of her! I find that sometimes in romance books the girl is weak and has little personality…those books really annoy me…but that wasn’t the case here at all! And not just Emily too, I loved that there were a lot of really strong female characters in the Dirty Money series – I loved Jessica and Shane’s mum is really clever!
The plot thickens further in Damage Control, with more secrets coming to light about Brandon Sr, and Derek’s involvement with a drugs cartel. Its intense! Every time I think I have the story all figured out something happens and I have to rethink all my ideas! It definitely kept me on my toes. And alongside the swoon-worthy romance between Emily and Shane I really couldn’t have asked for more!
And of course I’m so excited to learn more in the next book which comes out in August!! I’m sure it’s going to be just as good!!
