How bad do you want it?

The only man within the Brandon empire with a moral compass, Shane Brandon is ready to take his family’s business dealings legitimate. His reckless and ruthless brother, Derek wants to keep Brandon Enterprises cemented in lies, deceit, and corruption. But the harder Shane fights to pull the company back into the light, the darker he has to become. Then he meets Emily Stevens, a woman who not only stirs a voracious sexual need in him, but becomes the only thing anchoring him between good and evil.

Emily is consumed by Shane, pushed sexually in ways she never dreamed of, falling deeper into the all-encompassing passion that is this man. She trusts him. He trusts her, but therein lies the danger. Emily has a secret, the very thing that brought her to him in the first place, and that secret could destroy them both.

My Review

5 "Chris Merit needs to make room for Shane Brandon" stars!!

I absolutely loved Chris and wondered what kind of hero this series would have. LRJ did NOT disappoint. She found a way to create another phenomenal hero. Shane was honourable, dedicated, dominant, intelligent, charismatic, loyal, protective, and caring. And Emily really seemed to be his perfect match. She was loyal, smart, perceptive, secretive, sweet, and loving. These two together were combustible!

While enjoying a passionate relationship, these two had to navigate their way through the minefield that was the Brandon empire. It wasn't an easy road with Shane's family members each having their own agendas and each trying to manipulate their way to ultimate power.

This book had many elements I love such as mystery, secrets, suspense, bitter rivalry, betrayal, sexiness, and developing love.

It's obvious almost from the start that Emily has been holding on to a huge secret. A secret that she felt could seriously damage her relationship with Shane. I NEED book 2 so I can find out what that secret is!! And to watch Shane show Emily that she had nothing to worry about because he's just that awesome lol.

Lisa Renee Jones created another gem and this story was an incredible kickoff to her new series.
