Tanya Rae’s rating: 5 of 5 stars
Thank you, Lisa Renee Jones for recapping who’s who! It has been a little while since Hard Rules, came out in 2016.
The End Game is the finale, in the Dirty Money series & this was an emotional read and a few twists that I didn’t see coming. Of course, I can’t say what happens because that would be a spoiler. But, I was surprised & sad by it.
The Dirty Money Series has been Shane Brandon’s and Emily Stevens story. Shane has had to fight his own family because Brandon Enterprises was pulled into corruption, lies and deceit by his own father and brother. But, Shane is trying to bring it back and to legitimize their business.
There is something about Shane’s dad that I didn’t want to like him and most of the time I didn’t but there is a part of me that does.
I loved the ending how everything was brought back together.
You do need to read the Dirty Money series in order.
Hard Rules, Damage Control, Bad Deeds, and End Game. And, for those that don’t want to read a series before it is completed now is the time since this was the end. And, for those that like spin offs it looks like this is going to happen!
I love the Dirty Money Series. I give End Game 5 stars.
“A dramatic plot propels Shane’s intense emotions, magnified by his first-person narration… A satisfying conclusion elevates a dramatic, sexy…series.”
“END GAME is definitely worth the wait! This novel, much like the others in the series, is packed to the rafters with character and plot development.”
