Bad Deeds by Lisa Renee Jones

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“A blade in your hand now. A blade in your heart, or back, later.”

Here I sit two days after reading Bad Deeds by Lisa Renee Jones, still SPINNING from this whirlwind of a romantic suspense that STUNNED me SPEECHLESS. My mind is still stuck in this story, wrapped up in this mastery of words that OWNED ME. Bad Deeds still OWNS every ounce of me.

Bad Deeds is smolder, scandal, and sin that seduces the senses while wrapping you in a web of suspense full of thrilling twists and turns. This is a tale that twists around you where you’re fully immersed and highly intoxicated. This is a story that steals your mind, body, and soul. There is no other way to read this stirring suspense except to do a deep dive, sinking in until you can only feel the words. You have to go ALL THE WAY IN!!!

Shane Brandon is smooth, smart, and sexy. This white knight in a dark world is at war to save his family and their empire before they all crash and burn. Shane is tough on the outside but tender at the core. An all-alpha, Shane is passionate and powerful, a protector and hero I LOVED!!! 

She is the sunshine that was never supposed to exist in this storm I’m living.

Emily Stevens is beautiful, brave, bold, sexy, savvy, and smart. Like Shane, Emily is a survivor. She is the ultimate heroine.

“No one has ever made me feel what you make me feel, Shane.”

Emily and Shane are MAGICAL together! I felt their chemistry combust. I felt their love flow through the pages. 

“Emily,” he whispers softly, a gruff, affected quality to his voice, and then he’s kissing me, the taste of all of his emotions bleeding into my mouth: anger. Guilt. Pain.

That kiss is palpable! It’s power meets passion, a kiss that is so much more. 

I know it’s with her that I will always find me.

Shane, this tough man, MELTED ME! I could not help but SMILE and SWOON. Shane POSSESSED ME while Emily IMPRESSED ME! 

“I won’t be the girl who went down without one hell of a fight.”

This king protects his queen and this queen protects her king too. 

“You could always sacrifice your queen and let her die a royal death. Would it—would she—be worth it to win?”

Bad Deeds was MY DRUG and I could not get enough of this FIX. Words crash into you where you can’t help but be immersed in the spell of the story. This story stole, stripped, and shattered both my heart and soul. Bad Deeds BLEW ME AWAY!

Oh what a thrilling and twisted tale Lisa Renee Jones weaves! Bad Deeds is FLAWLESSLY EXECUTED. This fast-paced read rendered me POWERLESS where I SUCCUMBED to this soul-stirring suspense. This rush of romance roller coaster rendered me BREATHLESS! I was nearly biting my nails as this twisted tale thrust me to the edge where I dangled, clinging to every ounce of hope. Bad Deeds set me ON FIRE where I felt this book BURN! I FELT ALIVE, and there is no better feeling when reading a heart-stopping suspense!

The best suspense stories are those that crawl so deeply into your head that you’re not merely reading a book but living it too. Lisa Renee Jones is the queen of suspense! From Hard Rules to Damage Control to Bad Deeds, this series only gets better! Bad Deeds by Lisa Renee Jones is not simply a story: it’s an EDGE-OF-YOUR-SEAT EXPERIENCE and ADRENALINE-INDUCING ADVENTURE!!! I am still shaken, spinning from Bad Deeds, suspended in a suspense stupor. This adventure left me ACHING FOR MORE.

Wall Street meets the Sons of Anarchy in Bad Deeds, the smoldering, scorching next novel in the explosively sexy Dirty Money series from New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones.

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….
