Lisa Renee Jones returns to the blog today to wrap up her Dirty Money series – set in Colorado, this fast paced series is sure to please romantic suspense fans and those who love this author’s work.
Picking up where Bad Deeds (book 3) left off, the story quickly brings action and tension to the forefront. Even with the quick recap from Jones, you truly cannot read this book and understand the characters or their motivations if you haven’t read earlier titles in the series. And for those who have read them – be warned – this is grab you by the throat tension filled moments that mix with answers, heartbreak, sprinkles of potential happiness and a need to turn each page faster and faster as the story moves on to its conclusion.
Told in two parts with different points of view coming forward to share the story: Shane’s part gives us his own frustration, mastery and adaptability as the mind games and manipulations bring danger, disgrace and conflict to his door. While he wants to keep Brandon Enterprises on the straight and narrow, and his sibling rivalry with his brother is starting to settle, his father’s manipulations and the illicit drug deals and trades are weighing on him. And then there is Emily – a perfect match for him even with her own secrets and the dangers she faces –there’s seemingly an endless twisty maze for him to navigate to get any resolution – and that won’t come without some serious disillusionment and disappointment as more secrets and bad deeds are uncovered.
Emily is so totally in love with Shane – but her secrets and the dangers those produce, including her being a target for those who wish to manipulate Shane’s actions by using her as a pawn become even more relevant here. There are answers to be had, but at what price? With the stalwart and always in his corner (and hers) Jessica, a potentially lifesaving treatment option that could be derailed with each choice that Shane makes and some seriously emotionally laden revelations and discoveries that Shane faces in nearly every new twist, the story has so much going on with answers, new questions, more revelations and more answers right until the end. A solid conclusion for a series that brought up many questions, situations and plenty of steam along the journey.
