  • Mindy Lou's Book Review
    This was a surprise for me. I really wasn't expecting to love Eric's story so much. We got a few scenes with him in previous Dirty Rich series but he didn't stand out to me at that time. However, I was completely enthralled. Eric is done with his father's family but it only took Harper to pull him back in. He has never stopped thinking about their time together 6 years ago. Even though he fears she is just like the rest of his family, he wants he...
  • Carvanz
    Wow! This is was an intense read that kept me engaged the entire time. Harper and Eric have a bit of a past and six years later she needs him to help her find out what is happening at his father’s company. Eric isn’t interested. He wants nothing to do with his “family” but he finds it difficult to say no to Harper. Following her to Denver he takes the opportunity to pull her under his protection and they set out to learn the mystery of wh...

    We all remember Eric from Grayson's books. BUT The Bastard & The Princess can be read as a complete standalone duet - but I suggest you read the Dirty Rich series in the right order - all very adorable and sexy and exciting books! ☺Eric is the bastard son of a mega rich Colorado business man. But he doesn't want anything to do with his horrible father, grandmother and half-brother. That's why he paid his own way through college and became a Nav...

    Freaking cliffhanger ugh. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Normally I am all over anything by Lisa Renée Jones, however the book proved a little different than her normal series that I read. A spinoff from the Dirty Rich series, The Bastard did not immediately give me that all in feeling. It has some quirks that are bugging me.The main one is Eric. I love Eric. He is a sexy, steamy hunk of a guy but he has a huge chip on his shoulder about the fact that he h...

    Find this review and others at Carlene Inspired.The Bastard is Lisa Renee Jones' first novel in the new Filthy Duet and the sixth book in the Dirty Rich series. I'm happy to report the duet is completely standalone and can be reach without reading the Dirty Rich series, though if you're like me it's going to make you want to read them. Like all other LRJ novels, The Bastard sucked me in within the first few pages and I couldn't stop reading for a...

    "He affects me and not just physically. I mean, yes, he's one hell of a good-looking man and he wears that expensive suit he's got like he owns it and the world, but it's more with him." It's not a one-way street, they affect each other. When they first laid eyes on each other their connection was instantaneous. He walked away, but he never forgot her, the princess. It's been six years and he never thought he'd see her again. But there she is, st...

    You can see this and other Reviews I have written along with various cover reveals, excerpts, and giveaways here Nadine's Obsessed with BooksThis book had me hooked from the very first page, I just couldn't put it down! I fell for both Eric and Harper right from the beginning, I think I fell faster then they even did. ;) Eric didn't have an easy life growing up being raised by a single mother is never easy but when she dies and your father is for...

    OMG, I knew it was going to end on a good cliffhanger but that was a whopper. This is the first in the Filthy Duet and it is one roller coaster ride that will leave your head spinning.Eric Mitchell was raised by a single mother and found out before she died that his father is a rich man that doesn't know he exist. But she wants him to know his father before she dies. The family doesn't want anything to do with him and they let him know it real qu...
  • April Symes
    The Bastard by Lisa Renee Jones is the 1st book in the Filthy Duet and the 6th Book in the Dirty Rich series. This is Harper and Eric's story. I wasn't expecting to enjoy Eric's story so much but wow, Eric's story is amazing. We had a few scenes with him in previous Dirty Rich books but he wasn't a character that stood out to me that made me crave his story . Now though, I am so glad we have his story with Harper for it is enticing and sizzling. ...

    Could Not Put It Down!!! A great start to another winning duet by Lisa Renee Jones.Eric, oh, Eric - where to begin. He’s a bastard and will tell you that himself, but you need to read the book to find out why. One thing is for sure – you will either love Eric or you won’t, but you will have to make that decision for yourself. Just know that he has he reasons for being like he is and not being able to trust easily.Eric and Harper had an imme...
  • Karina
    Absolutely loved this story. You could feel Eric and Harper’s connection from the very beginning and all the way through. The storyline pulls you in from the very start and keeps you on the edge of your seat til the end. The twists and secrets between not only Eric and Harper but also with the Kingston family are so well written. The two want to trust one another but there are things that have happened to each of them that cause them to questio...
  • The Book Junkie Reads . . .
    Filthy will be an apt word to describe the read you will get between Harper and Eric. This will not be a read for the faint of heart. If you despise sex details, explicity stop now. If you crave the edge of explicity in your romance reads pick this one up and see the ride that you go on with an ex-SEAL and that girl he craved. The come back together and all kinds of sparks fly inside and outside. LRJ does what she does and take you on a steamy jo...
  • Julie
    I loved Eric’s story. He had it all, a self made man, pots of money, really smart and hot as hell, but not really excepted by his family, not by everyone any way. But Eric doesn’t let that faze him, he knows what he is, a Bastard, and he states his title out loud.He’s also a master with numbers and that’s why he’s been so successful and when his stepsister Harper ask for help it didn’t come too much of a surprise...just why ask him?Th...
  • Tanja Kezmic
    This book is full off angst, suspicions and enemies where ever you turn. Eric and Harper have a complicated relationship and both of them keeping secrets is not helping them finding HEA. This book is hard to review without give anything away but trust me when I tell you - you're gonna love this story. Lisa Renee Jones once again pulled me into this world where lies and desepcion are the main theme and I'm loving every second of it.So now comes th...
  • Isha Coleman
    Count on Jones to create a character that has to get under your skin to steal your heart. Whether you love him or hate him, Eric knows how to be the star of the show. Life may make the rules, but he's intent on calling the shots. Harper is his greatest weakness. She speaks to the broken boy and entices his adult instincts. Their relationship is dangerously messy. Passion runs deep, secrets are endless and heartache is evident. The Bastard is an e...

    Awesome story! I'm not sure how LRJ is able to create these amazing characters, but every story she creates is pure magic.Full review to follow.#MSBB
  • Stacy
    I love this b*stard! Lisa Renee Jones has done it again! I loved this book! We start with the meeting between the b*stard Eric & his step sister, the princess, Harper. Let’s say they get more than friendly, shall we?! Again, they are not blood related & didn’t grow up together, so no worries there! Jump to six years later, & Harper needs his help. She works for his father, but she knows something is off with the business. Neither one has been...

    I think I forgot to breathe from chapters 1 to 4. Wow. That was explosive and sensual and my heart beat so fast I could hear it :-DBut oh chapter 5 stopped me cold in my tracks with that time lapse :-( I shook it all rather quickly, though, as the reacquaintance between Eric and Harper is swift and engagingly mysterious.The storm of emotions that surges between them is so powerful, the ardent attraction swirls with the poison from their colliding...
  • Tanya Rae ~ TaSTy WordGasms
    The Bastard is the first book in the Filthy Duet. There is an, I need to pick my chin up from the floor ending! This is Eric Mitchell and Harper (Eric’s stepsister) story and it is a two parter. Thankfully, The Princess will be coming soon. Eric is the right-hand man to Grayson Bennett in the (Dirty Rich Series) but, Eric needs 2 books to tell the whole story. And the Filthy Duet Series can be read separately from The Dirty Rich Series. Plus, E...
  • Pennie Morgan
    I knew it was coming but still my heart was pounding and I was cussing at the cliffhanger! Why or why do I get sucked in? Because this is was great author who ropes me back in every time and I gladly and with pleasure keep coming back for more! Eric is the bastard son who left the family to make his own way and he did it better than the Kingston family could have imagined possible and now he is back but is he back to save the company or take it d...

    Wow...Talking about a cliffhanger... What a story..The story of Eric and Harper..Part one of a duet, and it al starts 6 years ago. A connection from the very beginning, the two want to trust one another but there are things that have happened to each of them that cause them to question if the secrets they have will tear them apart..The chemistry is undeniable but will the secrets pull them apart? Eric is the bastard from the Kinston family and Ha...

    Full Review will be posted on Book Lovin' Mamas on 11/15/2018 during Blog Tour.I’m kicking myself in the rear now because I haven’t thoroughly read the Dirty Rich series, but now I have to because Eric was introduced in those books. Lisa Renee Jones is one of my favorite authors too, so I’m going to rectify this by reading the Dirty Rich series very soon. I can’t believe I’ve only read one of the books and it was out of order. :*( I HAV...
  • Cheryl Whitty
    Reviewed on,My god how could you leave me with that ending talk about a cliffhanger? This is great read I loved the bastard it reminded me of some of Lisa’s early books. Even though I have every book she has ever written this is classic LRJ. We have Eric the bastard son who fools around with the Princess Harper who goes to Eric to help her get to the bottom of something gone wrong at Kingston Cars. Eric can’t resist, wi...
  • Melanie Marnell
    There's an intensity to Lisa Renee Jones' writing that almost leaves you breathless. Her characters are intense, provocative, dynamic, sensual, successful and driven. Her stories are intense, dramatic, intriguing and evenly paced and sometimes imbued with hard hitting action. For six years, since their first encounter, Eric and Holly have lived with regrets and feelings of betrayal. Now she's back and in need of his help. Eric wants nothing to do...

  • Terra Drynan-Werder
    OMG!!!!! NOOOOO!!!! That's what I yelled as I finished this book. My absolute favourite books by Lisa Renee Jones are the ones full of mystery and who done it and well of course the sex. I couldn't read fast enough to find out what was going to happen. Will Eric and Harper get their happily ever after or will the Kingston family win once again? Eric and Harper's connection is immediate and explosive and you can almost see it in the air around the...
  • Chantal
    What can I say. Lisa has once again captured me with her intrigue and suspense. Couple that with a sexy man and storyline and I’m hooked.Eric and Harper. Two characters who when together one can feel the chemistry between them. As much as they’re so wrong for each other they can’t seem to stay away. Their families intwined doesn’t make things any easier. His return to the family not well received. So many secretes to discover. So many sec...
  • Becky Rendon
    I am always always left frustrated at the end of a Lisa Renee Jones book. She owns the market on cliffhangers that pick at your brain. I am always swamped with conspiracy theories, possible plot twists, and just straight lost for how it's going to go. I feel like I've been given a book that missed the last 7 chapters- every time. Suspense, they say, a damn tease I say!So yes, I'm ranting! But it's totally warranted. I need more and I need it now!...
