4.5 Stars

Shane Brandon has been pushed to the brink, torn between his corrupt family and his explosive, all-consuming desire for Emily Stevens, who he now knows is not who, and what, she seems. Has he trusted the wrong person? Will she, not his brother Derek, be the ultimate destruction of his family Empire.
Emily tries to run from Shane, but he will stop her, confront her, force her to reveal all
one hot touch and kiss, at a time, under every intimate detail of who this woman is, and what she wants, is exposed. But as he tears away the dangers of the unknowns with the woman in his bed, and in his heart, The Martina Cartel, has set their sites on his company, his family, and the one piece of leverage they believe he won’t gamble with: Emily.

We're back in Denver with our darling...
Shane Brandon.

And his Emily of course!
Lisa tells us all about the first book again at the beginning of this 2nd book. Which is so mega-amazing for us Bookalzheimer-Sufferers! I loved that.

The book starts in the same moment we left them last time. Brandon just found out that Emily has been telling him lies about herself.
But she's not ready to tell the truth. The truth could hurt or even kill herself and Shane.
But Shane doesn't yet believe that her secrets are not connected to his family.
But they aren't. Emily saw something she wasn't supposed to see. And now very bad people are after her.
And of course there are other bad people who want to destroy Shane and his family business too - like his idiot brother Derek. And his dad is still playing his stupid games.

We have LOTS of stuff to go through until we might see a happily ever after somewhere on the horizon! Which of course might not happen by the end of this book, because there is more coming! ☺



GREAT 2nd BOOK!!!!

I was sooo happy that Lisa told us all about what happened in the first book. I never remember anything once I get to the 2nd book in a series!!

This 2nd book was just as great as the first one.
It's all so mysterious and exciting and suspensy and erotic.
And again it all reminded me of Lisa's Amy Bensen series. It all felt like it was happening in the same time and place with similar people. Didn't bother me much, but I noticed it.

I love Shane and Emily. They just want what's best for everybody, but it's so hard to fight for their happily ever after with so much happening. In so many different places. All very confusing and so very suspensy! But I really enjoyed reading it. You can't stop, you just have to know what will happen next. And there's ALWAYS something happening. I think this series would be an amazing TV Show!!!

Lots of mystery and sexiness!
Perfect Romantic Suspense!

Can't wait to see what will happen in the next book because we're SO not done with #Shamily yet!!!!!☺☺☺

DAMAGE CONTROL was another very interesting & exciting & sexy romantic-suspense-mystery... Run to your nearest amazon for your own Shane - this one is MINE!!!

ARC received for an honest review

 Oh what a tangled web we weave....

#Shamily is back!

Firstly, thank you Ms Jones for the run down at the beginning of the book, reminding us of what happened in Hard Rules - my terrible bookzheimer's really appreciated it!

We are dragged straight back into the Brandon world with Damage Control, and it is full throttle from the first word to the last.

So many twists and turns, you never know who or what to believe.

For each question we have answered, a few more seem to jump out at us, and Ms Jones keeps the hits coming thick and fast.

And through it all, Shane and Emily are trying to forge a relationship.  But there is so much happening and so many twists and turns, you just wonder how they have time for each other (maybe they don't ever sleep!!)

Now I really need to know what happens next.  Please don't make us wait too long Ms Jones!

“You make me remember I need to be good and right in my choices.”
“Do you ever question doing what is good and right?”
“There have been times when I felt like my hand was forced.”
“When you were a lawyer?”
“No,” I say. “I manipulated the law, as does every attorney, but I never broke it. I’m talking about when I’m with my family.”
“Did you go where they lead?”
“Not so far.”
“That sounds like you might.”
“I don’t want to be them.”
“You aren’t them. You don’t have to be them.”
“I know that,” I say. “But you just keep telling me so I don’t forget.” Her legs hit the bed frame and she grips my arms.
I lean into a kiss and she pulls back, her hand pressing on my chest. “Wait. Now it’s my turn to say talk to me. Are you okay?”
“Death happened. The one thing I can’t control. It’s not the night to push me to stop protecting you. Not tonight. Can you do that?”
“Yes. We can.”
“We,” I repeat, “and that word sounds as good on my tongue as I know you’re going to taste. I’m going to make love to you properly. The way I plan to many times in our future.” I reach down and untie her robe, letting it fall open; my fingers sliding underneath just far enough to tease her nipples. They pucker beneath my touch, and her lashes flutter, settling on her cheeks. “But when it’s over, I’m going to fuck you hard and fast again.”
I tug gently on her nipples and she bites her lips. “Look at me,” I order gently.
She opens her eyes, and there is desire in their depths, but there are shadows there too,. I do not think she intends for me to see doubt or uncertainty that wasn’t there before. That I do not like or wish to know ever again. I want it gone. Now. Tomorrow. Forever. I reach up and rip the silk tie from her robe, wrapping it around my hand, before I reach up and caress the robe off her shoulder, letting it tumble to the ground.
“Give me your hands,” I order, but it’s really a question: Does she still trust me?
She studies me for several beats, her eyes narrowing ever so slightly, and I do not know what she sees in mine, but she offers me her hands. I wrap the silk around her wrists then lean in close to her, my cheek against her cheek, my body touching her nowhere else. “Now you’re at my mercy.”
“Yes,” she agrees. “I am.”
“How do you feel about that?”
My lips curve with the answer that is every bit the combination of sweet sexy honesty I’ve come to expect from her. “I’m going to make you warmer.”
I go still with that question, which on the surface is innocent, but I wonder if it truly is or if it’s about those shadows in her eyes. “I promise,” I say. “And you know, I never—”
“Make a promise you don’t keep.”
“Exactly,” I say, and her reference to my previous words tells me that I am not the only one on a mission of trust, and I intend to deserve hers.
I bring my hands to just above her shoulders, letting them lightly touch her before beginning a slow caress downward. She makes a soft little sound that has my cock thickening and my blood running hot, but I won’t rush this. My lips follow, tracing a line down one of her arms, then the other. I lean and caress my lips over hers, a feather light touch that teases me, if not her.
I take her hands in mine, pressing them behind her head. “Hold them there, for me, so I can see all of you. Understand?”
“You intend to tease me incessantly,” she says, without so much as a hint of hesitation. “Yes. I understand.”
I wrap my arm around her waist and pull her naked body against me, my free hand on hers above her head, our mouths a breath apart. “I intend to lick every part of you, and then do it again, so yes. If that’s the definition of incessant teasing, then yes. I am going to tease you incessantly.” I close my mouth down on hers, my tongue licking into her mouth, a deep, hungry tasting I force myself to end far too quickly. “That was the beginning. Should I could continue?”
“Yes. Please.”
“Please,” I say. “I like that.”
