Book Tour ~ Hard Rules ~ Lisa Renee Jones

Review by Elizabeth

***** 5 Stars

When I started to read this I was so excited for another series from the Amazing Lisa Renee Jones..... I mean she is a Rockstar! She does not disappoint! This is not just another office romance read! This has twists and turns, love and hate.... lots of hate. We have a fiercely protective male and a equally protective female, both sexy and both with amazing chemistry! This is one I did not out down and had to read again.

Review by Heather

4.5 Hard stars

I waited what seemed like forever for this book. First, the cover grabbed my attention. Then, the synopsis. Then, my grabby hands were reaching like crazy for this book. And the verdict? 

It was awesome! 

I loved Shane Brandon. He was hot, powerful and intriguing. Emily Stevens is a beautiful woman with secrets, and she has taken Shane by surprise—all over a cup of coffee—and ostensibly changed the direction of his life. 

Hard Rules takes us down the dirty rabbit hole of greed and power where money rules. Where the game is not only to win but at what cost. Who will remain on top? I'm a huge fan of suspense, thrills and chills and a bit of mystery. Lisa Renee Jones included all of these elements and a bit of romance, and had hit the jackpot for me. 

I'm ready for the next one to see what happens. ~ Heather


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 could destroy them both.
