End Game is the final installment in the Dirty money series and I couldn’t be more happy and sad at the very same time.  I fell in love with Shane Brandon the moment I met him.  He is your typical hot Alpha male, the overprotective sexy hunk that will stop at nothing to protect the one he loves.    He fights back hard but loves even harder.


We get the conclusion of Emily and Shane’s story in this final installment but I really don’t think this will be the last we see of them.  The author has created an amazing cast of characters that readers can’t help to not only love but also see each one get their story and HEA told which on the upside would definitely give us some more Shane and Emily.


I loved Shane’s fierceness, from the moment we met him in book one to the end of this one, it never wavered.  He’s loyal to those who are loyal to him.  And even though he can be cold, heartless and definitely ruthless in and out of the courtroom when he needs to be, he is also kind, caring and so loving when it comes to those he loves.  I have to be honest, as much as I wanted and needed this last book and couldn’t wait to read it, I find myself so sad with no more Shane to look forward to.


I really loved Emily’s character.  She was strong and stubborn and she too could be a force to be reckoned with.  I loved that the author didn’t make her out to be some helpless damsel in distress.  I loved that she was willing to stand at Shane’s side and fight back with everything she had. These two were an absolute perfect pair.  The dynamic the author built up and continues to through the story was phenomenal.  Never did their relationship fall flat but never did it also go over the top with unnecessary drama.   I also loved the chemistry and attraction between them.  It was easy to see and feel it right from the start and even at the end, I didn’t tire of that strong attraction and never did it not feel real.


I must say, once again the author did not disappoint with this conclusion and their story as a whole.  This was a series that kept me engaged with the perfect combination of the right amount of hotness and great story that left me on the edge of my seat many times, especially at the end of Bad Deeds.  I know I have said it before about this author, especially in my reviews for the books in this series, but I love it so much I have to say it again.  I love that the author takes the time at the beginning of each of her books in this series to give us a brief recap of what has happened in the story and where we left off in the last book.  Along with that she also includes a quick debrief of the main characters.  This may see like something not that big, but for someone who works full time on top of being a mom with not much time to read, not having to take the time to try to remember what happened in the prior books you read 3-4 months ago and 10-15 books ago, is huge for me. I am immediately brought up to speed and right back into their story, not wasting time trying to figure it all out as their story continues to unfold.


The author overall did an amazing job writing this series but also this conclusion.  I was definitely an emotional roller coaster and jammed packed with so many emotions.   This book had me mad, heartbroken and head over heels in love.  I truly hope we get to see Seth’s story and Jessica and Cody’s story.  These characters were fabulous supporting characters that I have grown to love and now feel the need to get their stories.
