    First of all, The Bastard is the first book in a spin off of the Dirty Rich Series. While we do meet Eric in that series, we don't really know too much about him and this is his story. Finally. With that being said, you can 100% read this as a standalone. Although, once you finish, you...

    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 bu...

    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...

    Oh man... what an ending!!! I knew there was going to be a cliffhanger!!! That?s ok though, as all of the books in this trilogy are out! I?m continuing on to the next immediately!!! I just have to find out where all of this story is heading! There are still lots of unanswered quest...

    Freaking cliffhanger ugh. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Normally I am all over anything by Lisa Rene 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 h...

    "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 the...

    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 ...

    4 Big Bastard Stars I have never read Lisa Renee Jones before. I own some of her books and I have had her on my tbr list for a while, but this is my first real taste of her writing. It took me a while to get use to her writing. At times, especially in the beginning, it felt cho...

    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 ...

    Gah, I should have checked before reading this from Netgalley. Had I known it was part of a series, I wouldn't have read it because now I am bloody hooked! Admittedly it was difficult for me to get into the story at first because Eric and Harper are constantly in circles. They kept ...

    Audiobook Review I was hooked on The Bastard from the first chapter with its fast pace and intense emotions. The story left me eager for more, despite some flaws that would normally have me giving the book a lower rating. My biggest peeve is that the dialogue is repetitive. It remi...

    The Bastard was full of tension, questionable loyalties, and chock full of secrets. It's a story about a son who has never been recognized and who can never go home... until he does. With one heck of a cliffhanger, I can't wait to see what LRJ brings us in the conclusion to this Filthy...

    I'm thankful to have received this book through Netgalley. I was worried I would have been lost since I haven't read the Dirty Rich series. I saw somewhere you could still read this extension of the series and not be lost. They were so right I didn't really feel left out. I know probab...

    There's something so right about this one. It's several things, all of which escape definition, except this: the characters have some baggage, yes, but there's no that washed out cliche of at least one of them being damaged to the point beyond reach of conventional psychiatry, and the ...

    4.5 stars! Lisa Renee Jones is an amazing storyteller, she demonstrates once more her ability to weave together gripping storylines with powerful emotional complexity. Another heart-stealer for sure and I can't wait to read the second part of this duet. ...

    Nov 10, 2018
    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 Ha...

    Awesome story! I'm not sure how LRJ is able to create these amazing characters, but every story she creates is pure magic. Although this is book 6 in the Dirty Rich series, it is the book 1 of a duet featuring Eric and Harper. For the most enjoyment, I would recommend reading them i...

    I have received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I honestly wanted to like The Bastard more than I did. However, it was just meh to me. In it, you will meet Eric and Harper. Now I'm still not quite sure what their family connection is (and I finished this bo...

    4 1/2 stars! Oh.My.God. That ending just killed me! Eric Mitchell is the illegitimate son of Jeff Kingston (which explains the title of the book). Harper is his step-sister. They had a quick "secret" interlude six years ago just before Eric left. Even though he regretted leaving ...

    I hate giving books 1-star reviews as I think writing a whole book is an achievement in itself most of the time. The time and effort that goes into a book is obviously more than most of us realise, but I just couldn't rate this any higher. Firstly, the writing was just too weird fo...

    I downloaded this from Netgalley. Unfortunately this wasn't for me. I felt this was a generic billionaire alpha book with family business drama. If someone typically likes a lot of these books, then they'll probably like this one. The writing wasn't bad, but there were a few things...
