About Hard Rules: Hard Rules Cover Wall Street meets the Sons of Anarchy in Hard Rules, the smoldering, scorching first novel in the explosively sexy new Dirty Money series from New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones. 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 that could that destroy them both.

My Review: (ARC provided)
4 stars!

Wow this book was complex! It wasn't hard to follow or anything but it had a lot of different elements. It was suspenseful, angsty, romantic, and hot. We had a lot of sexual tension going on between the two MC's and just a lot of tension in general. There was so much strain between Shane's (H) family and the business not to mention his fathers new assistant (Emily). Emily (h) is running from something and has secrets but we don't quite know what is going on. We get little tid bits of info but we really don't know what to think about her.

Shane is a good guy and his family has a lot of secrets in their business that is becoming more and more corrupt. Shane wants to have a clean business and be on the straight and narrow but he can't convince his family to come clean. You don't know who to trust and everyone is a sketchy. Just when Shane thought he may have something, another bomb drops.

"Blood doesn't mean loyalty, and that's what I've been counting on to save me"

I really enjoyed this book. It was well written, easy to follow (even though there is a lot going on) and had me wanting more. Shane and Emily had  great chemistry and I can't wait to get more of them. A word of warning though, this does end with a cliffhanger so be prepared.

"Hard Rules. And hard rule number one is, no more lies."

Another great book by Lisa!
