Jazz . . . Booze . . . Boys . . . It’s a dangerous combination. Every girl wants what she can’t have. Seventeen-year-old Gloria Carmody wants the flapper lifestyle—and the bobbed hair, cigarettes, and music-filled nights that go with it. Now that she’s engaged to Sebastian Grey, scion of one of Chicago’s most powerful families, Gloria’s party days are over before they’ve even begun . . . or are they? Clara Knowles, Gloria’s goody-two-shoes cousin, has arrived to make sure the high-society wedding comes off without a hitch—but Clara isn’t as lily-white as she appears. Seems she has some dirty little secrets of her own that she’ll do anything to keep hidden. . . . Lorraine Dyer, Gloria’s social-climbing best friend, is tired of living in Gloria’s shadow. When Lorraine’s envy spills over into desperate spite, no one is safe. And someone’s going to be very sorry. . . . From debut author Jillian Larkin, VIXEN is the first novel in the sexy, dangerous, and ridiculously romantic new series set in the Roaring Twenties . . . when anything goes.

I swear! Let me take a moment to thank my friend for recommending it to me in the first place, a long, lon...
High society scandal? I say yes! Well not so much of a scandal these days but the journey of lovers, a scorned friend and family secrets kept me reading. I enjoyed the writing, the characters are all easy to relate to and identify with. I am continuing on to the second book!
Even though this had a stellar ending I have to admit that a lot of this story was a snoozer. There was lots of backstory and build up that I think was well written and necessary to the story but just didn't capture my attention. (Hence the long time it took me to finish) 3.5 Stars and unsure about ...
