My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Title: Hard Rules
Author: Lisa Renee Jones


Once again, Lisa Renee Jones has managed to completely captivate my attention with another of her novels. Hard Rules tells the story of Theresa, a girl whose brother is the right hand to her father's drug ring. Unable to handle the oppression, she disappears. We then meet Shane - a lawyer brought back from New York to come and try to legalize his family business that has turned corrupt under his dying father and brother's 'reign'. Only, trying to turn the companies around is proving a whole lot more difficult than he ever expected and the only bright light is Emily, the woman hiding a dark past and trying to protect all those around her from her secrets.


I love how Lisa Renee Jones brings her characters to life. They feel so realistic that you can't help but follow them in their adventure and feel their emotions as though it were your own. Neither can you help wonder if there's a link between Emily and Theresa, then hope that whatever Emily is hiding that Shane will prove himself to be a man and stay by her side. Knowing that Hard Rules is part of a series, I can't wait to read the next installment to find out what will happen to these characters!
