  • Steamy Gilded Age Romance

    At a house party, innocent Alice asks playboy Kit for lessons in winning the interest of a man—for more than just her dowry. After two failed seasons, with a critical mother dogging her, she wants a marriage that offers mutual respect. Kit can't help but admire the spirited young woman, but he's not looking for a wife. Can they resist the growing attraction between them? I read a ton of Regency, so it's a nice change to read a historical romance set in the Gilded Age. There's a strong attraction between Kit and Alice from the beginning, but the romance develops gradually through the time they spend together helping each other. It's nice to see how Alice blossoms with Kit's encouragement. Thanks, NetGalley, for the ARC I received. This is my honest and voluntary review.

  • "I need a degree in seduction."

    “The Lady Get Lucky” by Joanna Shupe, book two of her Fifth Avenue Rebels series is out today. Alice Lush admired how easy it was for Christopher “Kit” Ward to talk to everyone and make them feel comfortable at a house party in Newport. After her mother went to bed, Alice knocked on Kit’s door, walks in and asked him for Lessons in Seduction before he even knew her name. Alice wanted to marry for love and after three seasons, if suitors will not come to her, then the shy debutante will flirt with them. Kit was instructed to stay away from the heiresses by his good friend, heroine in book one, so he refused Alice. The next day, embarrassed Alice and Kit were randomly paired up for a game. He wanted her to be comfortable around him and found out she was connected to a chef he wanted for his supper club he planned to open soon with one of his best friends. She learned a thing or two about negotiating from her father and she got Kit to agree to full lessons per recipe he desperately wanted for the success of his new venture. Kit may not be the marrying type, however time spent with the right person can change minds, especially when the lessons switched from advice to practice. I wanted to read this book because of the author, I did not read the synopsis, so I was delighted to find out this was a lessons-of-seduction-from-a-scoundrel book. I have no idea when people are flirting with me, that is was I love this trope, and instructions are helpful so I highlighted the lessons which was actually good advice. I enjoyed reading the thoughts and perspective from one who was shy and one with swag. I loved the time-passing-by scenes which were lovely to read and necessary for this type of book because we know they will fall in love, but the readers know when it starts before the characters do. When the characters finally face their internal conflicts, with the help of old or new friends, the proposal was amusing and chef’s kiss! Personally, this book came at the right time! I have been thinking about being shy equaling being bored, and this book brought up that misconception. There was so much more about Alice, or a wallflower, than finding a husband. Food is a love language and Alice’s passions related to food and cooking. Food was used to seduce in this book and I also have been told not to eat too much in front of a crush or people I “should” impress like Alice’s mother told her. I was thrilled to read that eating can be sexy. There were other elements that touched my heart, so this book was cathartic and relatable. I enjoyed this book very much! I am excited to read the first book of this series and more Gilded Age books by Joanna Shupe! Thank you to Net Galley, Avon, and Harper Voyager US for the ARC in exchange for a honest review.

  • Know Your Worth

    I was really intrigued by Kit after meeting him in The Heiress Hunt and was so happy to see him find his own HEA in The Lady Gets Lucky. I loved seeing this (reformed) rake have his world turned upside down by the sweet wallflower. Kit and Alice were an unlikely pair, but that's why it worked so well. Their lessons in seduction were so delicious and the sexual tension built up so wonderfully. Seeing Alice come into her own and then take charge of her sexuality and life were the best parts of the novel for me. She challenged and supported Kit in a way that no one ever had and I loved their connection. The story was also very emotional at times, with both main characters trying to overcome years of toxicity from their parents. My heart broke for both Kit and Alice as they struggled under the weight of all that negativity. I felt the angst was drawn out a bit too long in the book and I would have preferred Kit have recognized his feelings on his own. He had some good groveling, but I wanted more since I'm not sure he would have come to his epiphany if not for his personal tragedy and Nellie's influence. The ending was very sweet though and I now have a craving for Babka! Although it's not necessary to read book 1 to enjoy The Lady Gets Lucky, I think readers will have a more fulfilling experience if they have. The book follows the same timeline as The Heiress Hunt for the first half of the book, so it will give more depth to those events. I really enjoyed seeing what other characters were doing while those events unfolded in book 1 and it was a great way to set the plot in motion. I'm looking forward to Preston's book next, but I'd love to see a book for Nellie in the future too! CW: death of friend, alcoholism, grief, death of parent, parental abandonment, fat shaming, toxic parental relationship - emotional and mental abuse *I voluntarily read an advance review copy of this book*

  • Wonderful Romance With Great Characters

    Shy young woman on the marriage mart in Gilded Age New York makes a deal with a scoundrel. If he will teach her how to catch a husband she will provide her chef's recipes that will make his new supper club a success. Things do not go as expected when Kit discovers Alice is a good student. Along the way, Alice makes friends, stands up to her despicable mother, and discovers she can be a great chef. Kit discovers his father was wrong and he is a good person. Friends are the found family you create. Nellie provides a modified Irish Wake for Kit's friend. I can hardly wait until we read Nellie's story. Is Preston her HEA? I can only hope. I am also beginning to feel sorry for the Duke of Lockwood. Poor guy needs to find an heiress with money so he can fix the leaky roof on his castle. He seems like a nice enough guy, but he keeps losing out to these Fifth Avenue Rebels.
