I have no idea how I’ll survive the wait until End Game because it will be a while. Talk about a cliffhanger! Bad Deeds by Lisa Renee Jones takes it all.
Action, drugs, sex, suspense. What more can you ask for?
In Bad Deeds, Shane finds a way to get him and his family out of dealing with Adrian Martina and the cartel. He mends his relationship with Derek, his brother, whom hates and loves him. Yeah. Derek is a confusing man. Things are also taking shape with Emily and her new endeavor, which Shane wholeheartedly supports.
There are so many things happening in Bad Deeds. A lot of what’s been pestering Shane and his family is now getting resolved, though his dad’s health condition is still up in the air. Lisa Renee Jones does a marvelous job of showing to the reader the good side of Derek, and it makes me happy to say I was right when I said Derek was probably not the bad guy he’d been painted to be in the previous two books.
Derek has a good side and I guess he now realizes what he needs is not where he’s been, and in order to get what he really wants is to let go of the one thing he thought he always wanted. I hope there’s a spin-off with him and Teresa. I can already imagine all the conflict there’d be between him and Adrian, her brother, in order to be with the love of his life. I think Teresa already changed him in ways he didn’t see coming. So, Lisa Renee, if you’re reading this, I’d totally read a story on Derek and Teresa. Really. I would.
Heck, I even like Adrian. In Bad Deeds, I think he really is trying to change and legitimize everything. Yes. I believe he’s a bad man, when I say bad, I mean the coldhearted kind that doesn’t think twice about killing in cold blood. I think Adrian is that. But I also think, there are things he does in Bad Deeds that show he could totally redeem himself. Oh, how I’d love to see a story on this bad boy too. I’d read it up overnight. Oh, yes I would.
The cliffhanger in Bad Deeds is… is not what I’d expected. It’s different to any other cliffhangers I’ve ever read. I think things look worse than they are. What happened in that last chapter was amazing. I think Adrian didn’t know what Ramon was up to and he’s saying the truth. If Shane missed that shot, I hope in End Game Adrian does the job for Shane and prove he didn’t know what his guy was up to. Come on, otherwise, this will ruin Shane’s deal with him and his way of saving his family. Adrian’s got something to prove now and he needs to come through. If not, then I think in End Game Shane can go extremely dark for the sake of his family, and if he does, that would turn him into someone I’m not sure I’d like because it wouldn’t be who Shane is. I don’t know. I’m conflicted with the many ways this can go on the next book, which I hope is the last. I want Shane and Emily (Reagan) to have an HEA in the upcoming book. It’s only right.
Bad Deeds is yet another story where Lisa Renee Jones keeps her readers on the edge of their seats.
