Would you bleed for the one you love?
To save his family empire from the grip of the drug cartel, Shane is pushed to the edge of darkness, forced to make choices he might never make. His father is dying. His brother is desperate to rule the empire and this means war and all gloves are off. His brother only thought he knew what dirty meant. Shane is about to give it new meaning. There is another war brewing though, and that one, is inside him, his battle between right and wrong, light and dark, and in the heat of the night, it is Emily he turns to for escape. Driving her to new limits, pushing her to accept a part of him that even he cannot.
In every one of Shane’s seductive demands, Emily can taste and feel, his torment, his struggle to save his family and not lose himself. But he is losing himself, and that is a problem just as dangerous as her secret, that still lurk in the shadows, a threat to the Brandon Family waiting to erupt. No matter where she and Shane have traveled, or will travel in the future, she can’t just sit back and watch him become everything he hates, everything he never wanted to become, everything she tried to save him from when she tried to run. It could be their undoing, the end. His end.
This is war, blood will spill, and someone in the heart of the Brandon family will not survive….

5 Stars to Bad Deeds: Dirty Money #3 by Lisa Renee Jones.
The epic saga continues with even more intense moments!
Bad Deeds continues exactly where Damage Control (book #2) left off. I must tell you that if you haven’t read the first two books in the Dirty Money series beforehand, you must! Bad Deeds is not a standalone and you will be otherwise lost. There is so much drama and angst going on. There are many secondary characters that each play different roles in this story. This book is suspenseful and complex.
Emily and Shane have their troubles. Their own and shared. But they have each other and that isn’t going to change. Shane will do anything to keep her safe. He will hurt anyone who tries to harm her in any way. Including his brother.
Derek is a real a-hole! I didn’t like him from book one. I thought he was deceitful, selfish and completely disloyal to his brother. However, after reading this book, I feel like I understand him a little better. I was happy to have some of his POV so that I could be inside his thoughts.
In this book you will be stressed, wondering what is going to happen and who it will involve. Who can you trust? There is a lot of dark to keep you on your toes. (And chewing your nails.)
Of course, as in Lisa Renee fashion, there is a cliffhanger! And now I am holding my breath waiting on the final book!
If you like intrigue and suspense featuring a sexy hero, a smart, resourceful heroine, with a wealthy dysfunctional family, you need to grab this series.
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it.
