This is quite a tricky review to write. I thoroughly enjoyed book #1, Hard Rules. It's a gripping story filled with murky secrets and great characters.
Although I did enjoy this book, somehow it felt like a filler to me. I think that there was so much left unsaid in the first book that as a result the second is crammed with information. Lots is revealed - although not everything - and it kind of lost me a little. It became so plot driven, that I lost that feeling of connection to the characters.
That being said, the characters are great and seem to evolve as the story moves forward. Shane is as protective as ever and there's so much hanging in the balance that it still kept me hooked.
I'm really looking forward to book #3 and highly recommend both Hard Rules and Damage Control.

Wall Street meets the Sons of Anarchy in Damage Control, the smoldering, scorching next novel in the explosively sexy Dirty Money series.
The only thing more dangerous than a dark secret is a damaged heart…
Shane Brandon has been pushed to the brink, torn between his corrupt family and his explosive, all-consuming desire for Emily Stevens, who he now knows is not who, and what, she seems. Has he trusted the wrong person? Will she, not his brother Derek, be the ultimate destruction of his family Empire?
Emily tries to run from Shane, but he will stop her, confront her, force her to reveal all — one hot touch and kiss at a time, under every intimate detail of who this woman is, and what she wants, is exposed. But as he tears away the dangers of the unknowns with the woman in his bed, and in his heart, The Martina Cartel has set their sights on his company, his family, and the one piece of leverage they believe he won’t gamble with: Emily.
