Damage Control by Lisa Renee Jones
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Jones is back with an exciting new entry in the Dirty Money Series. If book one was the slow burn setting up a story, volume two is a flamethrower burning up the pages with juicy details. We are finally getting answers to so many of our questions but they are leading to even more dangerous places. Dominoes that were so expertly placed are now beginning to fall and the vibrations are being felt by everyone involved.
Amidst lies, deceit, and betrayal, truths are unraveling. Jones sets up two stories that run side by side while connecting through Shane and Emily. The first is Shane's story; the issues with his family dynamics along with their businesses. Second is Emily and the current threats she's facing from an extremely dangerous source. Now that there are no more secrets between them, we find them working to eliminate the risks. Just as in the last book, we see an emphasis on trust and the importance it plays between characters. How it shapes them and their actions. There is a definite shift in both Emily and Shane, as well as in their relationship. Together, we see their strength and resilience. Formidable adversaries, not to be underestimated.
Jones has a way with words and a knack for storytelling. Underneath the excitement and fast-paced storyline is the dynamic prose and bold characters I've come to expect from her. I can't even imagine what she has in store for us next. I have a feeling that it won't be what I'm expecting but far exceed any expectations I might have.
