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

Sometimes in order to find the one you love, you need to lose yourself completely…

Emily is gone, and Shane hovers on the edge of being consumed by his darkness. Emily is in danger. His family’s empire is in turmoil. And he has blood on his hands. As shocking twists, dark secrets, and explosive betrayals within the Brandon family come to the light, Shane must fight harder than ever before. But without Emily, he is no one…

With every desperate, powerful touch, Emily belongs to Shane. She has been found, but she still isn’t safe, and Shane will stop at nothing to keep her from harm. As they burn bright with passion, vengeance, and despair, the dangers they face grow closer and stronger. Emily has been opened up by Shane’s touch, saved by the dark intimacy he craves. But can Emily save Shane?

It all comes to a head in the shattering conclusion to the Dirty Money series by New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones.

Liezel’s Thoughts:

From the very start, “End Game” had me on the edge of my seat. If you’ve read the third book – Bad Deeds you would completely understand exactly why. The uncertainty continues on and does not let up for quite some time in the End Game.

Without giving much away, it is heartwrenching and at first, I couldn’t get past how the author could have let some of the things happen. As I came to accept the loss, however, I began to see why she went that route and appreciated the story more.

I loved how it became more and more about Shane. His persona definitely shined in this one. Here is this guy who would literally do anything for the people he loved. He put his life on the line numerous time even for the people who didn’t deserve it.

Beside him was a woman just as worthy of love. What was great was how they each challenged each other to be their best. The short back flashes from the very first book was such a great touch. It reminded you just how far this pair had truly come.

It was definitely a rough journey but in the end, it was perfect! I couldn’t ask for a better ending for Shane and Emily. Thank you, Lisa Renee Jones, for delivering yet another great romantic suspense series!
