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 that could that destroy them both.


I lost count of how many bloggers suggested me to give anything by this author a go, but the life of a reviewer tends to be quite busy so I also lost track of time, and years passed by... To those who kept 'pushing' me to try Lisa Renee Jones' works, you were right and I get it now: SO good.

The whole plot works great, it intrigues you to the point you don't know when it's time to put the book down. And why would you do that? Each character is captivating in their own way, we're not talking about swooning over themalthough you may find really hard not to do that with Shanebut wondering about their real intentions. Everyone seems to have their personal goal and who knows what trick or person they are willing to use for that purpose. It's like a chess game, but a very dangerous one. And if this wasn't enough to keep you strongly engaged, the chemistry between Shane and Emily will seal the deal. I can tell you the way the author worked the anticipation building deserves a big BRAVA!

"Hard Rules" opens a series filled with power, passion, mystery, suspense and twists that are guaranteed to make you turn page after page and then—when you reach the end—beg for more.
