Title: Damage Control
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.

Hard Rules ended with a huge cliffhanger so I was very glad to get the chance to read Damage Control and see where this adventure with Shane and Emily was headed. Both find themselves in incredibly dangerous and stressful situations through no fault of their own. Their families have caused far too much havoc and Shane and Emily are dealing with it all while their budding personal relationship is becoming more intense. They’re both the kind of characters the reader finds themselves caring and rooting for.
Book one left us wondering if they would even continue to see each other and what exactly was going on. Damage Control picks up right where Hard Rules left off. It take a while for the two to iron out their relationship when Shane finds out Emily isn’t who she says she is. Her deception makes him very suspicious of her involvement with not just him but his father and brother. Is she just a mole planted in the Brandon offices? Who is she really? What is she doing?
Ultimately. this is a romance novel about Shane and Emily so with a bit of effort they are able to work their way back into an increasingly close relationship but there are so many other situations causing stresses on our lovers. They live in a world where everyone is hiding something and a lot of it is very dangerous.
Jones does a great job creating characters and situations I find engrossing. This book has a touching romance, nail biting suspense, too many secrets and lies to keep track of, and plenty of intrigue. The story progresses very well with many interwoven scenarios.
We’re left at the end of this book with a lot of very scary, unanswered questions. Will these two even live through the maelstroms they find themselves in and find their happily ever after? Will they finally get answers to the plethora of questions wreaking having on their lives?
I’m anxiously awaiting the next book, Bad Deeds, to find out.
