My Review:
To be honest, I am not really sure how to start this review. I am rarely without words after finishing a book but I've found that that happens quite often with Lisa Renee Jones' stories. She grabs my full attention from the very beginning of each book and doesn't let me relax until the very end. And Hard Rules is not an exception. The masterfully woven story will keep you at the edge of your seat till the very end. And once you are done, you will simply crave more. More of the suspense, more of the hotness, more Shane and Emily. Simply more Lisa Renee Jones.

Hard Rules has everything a romantic suspense lover like me craves: danger, betrayal, hope, sizzling hotness, emotions and all that is sprinkled with love and romance. The two main characters, Emily and Shane, are incredibly strong individuals who fight for what they believe in. They are independent and none of them is looking for a relationship until they land eyes on each other. In truth, Shane and Emily being together just complicates things and makes them more dangerous for both of them. But once they have a taste of each other, they simply can't stay away. They both have secrets and past that can destroy them. They are in the middle of a family war that is anything but civil and by the rules. But with Emily's help, Shane continues to fight for his beliefs and his family's legacy. Even if the people he needs to fight to protect it are his own flesh and blood. And this is just the beginning of the war and the gloves are still not completely off...

It's been a whiles since I've read a good romantic suspense. But this story has it all: danger, fast paced action that will leave your head spinning and an incredible love story between two people that find each other in the middle of a family war and so many secrets that can destroy them both. I can't wait to find out what's going to happen in the second book, so I am immediately diving in :) And if you love this genre as much as me, this is a book you don't want to miss. I guarantee it. Especially considering Shane is one of the hottest BBFs out there ;)
