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.

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....

“His threats do not justify your bad deeds.”

Wow, Lisa Renee Jones certainly grabs the reader in the third book of this unputdownable series. The author starts as she means to go on with one intense, suspenseful ride and don’t get me started on the ending. This book was INTENSE, my heart was in my mouth for the majority, there were so many shifts in dynamics, some for the better some for the worse. Who to trust, who to trust, who to trust. Damn, so INTENSE. However, our hero and heroine are stronger than ever and the progression in their relationship only gave me a smile from ear to ear. Shane and Emily are one formidable team and this was a true test of their relationship, the trust they have in one and other, but more importantly just having that one person who will always stand by your side, pick you up when you are down and tell you how it is.

Shane is the one flying the flag for honesty and integrity and it is he that is dead set on restoring the family name and removing all trace of the drug cartel from his family’s business. With hostility at every turn, even amongst family, Shane’s back is to the wall, but being the lawyer that he is, he plays the game and he plays it even better surrounded by his team and Emily.

Corporate corruption is rife, not only in the Brandon company but with some of his major investors too, everyone has their own agenda and sometimes never the twain shall meet. It’s all about money, greed, manipulation and deceit, especially with regards to the Martina cartel.

“…you decided to play Russian roulette with a Mexican who doesn’t mind pulling the trigger and really wants the bullet to end up in your head.”

The growth in Derek, Shane’s brother, in this book was so incredibly welcome, just when I thought this man was irredeemable Lisa Renee Jones finally gives us a glimpse behind the man and I loved what I saw. Derek is a complex creature, stubborn, bloody minded and it seems his father’s puppet. While he has been an ignorant ass up until this point, with a woe is me attitude, he finally sees the wood for the trees in this book and maybe he is not as bad as he seems. After all is said and done, I hope that Lisa Renee Jones regales us with his own book, because colour me intrigued.

“Go fuck your woman. I’ll go fuck mine. And then we’ll see which one of us fucks each other/ Goodnight, brother.”

We get to see the other side of Shane in this book, the protector, the enforcer, the win at all costs mentality even if that means crossing proverbial lines. Shane shows his darker side while trying to toe the legal line, but sometimes lines get a little blurry and smudging them is a life or death decision. Emily really stands up for herself in this book, she made her presence felt in so many ways and her constant request for honesty leads her into some tenuous situations. However, Shane finally sees the clout she has and utilises her more than he would like, but she gets results.

“Don’t hide from yourself by hiding from me.”

This series is going from strength to strength and I cannot wait for The End Game, I only hope that Lisa Renee Jones has her speedy typing fingers going a mile a minute because I am desperate, seriously desperado. The crescendo is building perfectly and that inevitable climax is on the precipice. The intensity of this book is second to none and with all the players playing their trump card who will win in the end? Give me The End Game now, pretty please with a cherry on top.



“What is in your head right now?” His eyes heat, darken. “You. Always.” He inches back and looks at me. “You’re mine. Mine to protect.” His voice is low, fierce, and he grips my panties and yanks them away. “Mine to fuck.” I gasp and grab his shoulders. “Shane.” His answer is to wrap his arm around my waist, pull me close, his cheek against mine, his fingers pressing into the V of my body. “Wet, just the way I like you,” he says, pressing two fingers inside me. “Wet for me. And too fucking perfect for my sanity sometimes.” “That doesn’t sound like a compliment,” I pant out, grabbing the lapel to his suit as a sweet ache begins to build in my sex as his thumb strokes my clit. “And no one else,” he murmurs, nipping my earlobe, “will ever touch you like this.” His fingers caress deeper inside me. “No one,” he adds, “will ever make you say their name like I want you to say mine right now. Say it.” “Shane,” I whisper, and not because he wants me to, but rather because it’s there on my lips, the way I wish his tongue was on my lips now. “Shane, I—” Seeming to know what I need, he cups my head and kisses me, long, slow, sensual strokes of his tongue that somehow make every touch of his fingers more intense. “Come for me,” he murmurs, and this time when he kisses me, I start climbing that wall to release, and I’m there at the top in an instant. I stiffen while his fingers and tongue tease, please, and then I jerk, I’m over it, tumbling in an instant into shudders and shakes. Shane’s lips lift from mine as he breathes with me. His fingers slow as he eases me through the waves until I collapse against his chest. He tangles his fingers in my hair and drags my mouth back to his. “And no one but me will ever make you come like that again,” he declares, the waves of his emotions beating down any embarrassment I might feel over having had an orgasm on his father’s desk. “No one has ever made me feel what you make me feel, Shane.”
