  • The Prince of Broadway

    NYC 1891 A ruthless, powerful man, Clay Madden ran his casino with no mercy for those who tried to cheat him. He had pulled himself from the bottom up and now he was the ruler of all gambling activity in town. So when Florence Greene, kept coming to his casino, one where women were not allowed, he determined to put her in her place. Florence's plan seemed to be working when she was finally summoned to Clay's office. When she put her proposal before him, to mentor her in the casino business so she could open one for women, he finally relented. But he had conditions and he told her he seeked revenge against her father. I was totally enthralled from the beginning of this story. I was looking forward to seeing how this couple came together due to each of them being strong forces, not backing down from one another. Each thought the other attractive from the beginning but the journey for them was riff with high emotions, distrust and feelings that could be hard, especially from the hero. Prepare to be mesmorized and not able to put this one down once you start.

  • Great 2nd book in the Uptown Girl series

    Class, upper or lower, male or female, legal or illegal there is always some kind of distinction regarding class. Clayton Manning grew up in the lower class, but he had dreams. With hard work, quick thinking, and walking over people, he clawed his way to money, even if he never made it to the upper class. Florence Greene, upper class all the way. In the upper crust of New York City society, she never wants for anything, except, the freedom to be the person she is inside, without all the societal restrictions she faces due to her gender. Clayton vows to get back at the person he thinks ruined his family. Florence’s father. Florence dreams of running a gambling establishment. Clayton is the best and she wants to learn from him. Lust, love, retribution, and redemption. Can Clayton and Florence work together or will past injustices ruin their chance for the lives they’re looking for? I really enjoyed this book. Ms. Shupe does her research and the pages of the book come alive with history. I can’t wait for the next book in this series!

  • What's more important revenge or love

    I received an ARC of this book to read through Edelweiss+ in exchange for a fair review. The Prince of Broadway by Joanna Shupe is the second book in her delightful Uptown Girls series. It could be read as a standalone but I do recommend reading the first book as well because I enjoyed it immensely. Florence Greene is the middle sister in the wealthy Greene family. She has always felt that she doesn’t quite fit in and uninterested in society or marriage she intends to open a casino for women. Wanting to make a success of her plans she approaches Clayton Madden owner of The Bronze House the most successful and elegant casino in New York and asks him to mentor her in casino ownership. Expecting a spoiled debutante Clay is surprised to find that Florence is much more and as their attraction grows he will have to decide which is more important to him Florence or the revenge on her father that has motivated him for the last 20 years. One of the things I liked most about this book is the HEA. Their HEA is on their own terms, not societies and it is perfect for the characters involved and perhaps not what one might expect. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. Medium Steam.

  • The Prince of Broadway

    With Romance I usually fall for the hero first but with this series it's the heroines who have my heart a-twitter, don't get me wrong I love the heroes but the heroines are something extra special. I loved The Prince Of Broadway. It hit all the buttons for me in terms of things I enjoy but there were things here and there that I wasn't fond of. However, those things didn't ruin my overall reading experience. I highly recommend this book and series.

  • Casinos all around!

    Review originally published at Romancing Romances. I received an eARC at no cost from the publisher, and I am leaving a voluntary and honest review. Thank you. 3.75* Just under a 4 out of 5 rating, this book tells the story of Felicity Green, who wants to own a women’s casino during the Gilded Age. Smart woman that she is, she decided to ask Clayton, who already owns a casino, to teach her. Clay has a revenge story against her father, and that gets in the way of the happy ending, but in the end he does the right thing – of course. Although I enjoyed this book, it wasn’t a favourite. Clay’s revenge sometimes pushed things in a way that was too much, and Felicity was a bit annoying at parts, as she behaved in ways that didn’t feel very realistic. I did love the voyeurism scene, it was super sexy! The good times delivered, as usual. The end felt just right for everyone, and it’s very refreshing to have different goals and results than what we are used to – mind, it’s still a HEA, just not a “married with kids” HEA, which would not have suited our main couple. Definitely a big part in this series, Felicity and Clay’s story is one of social class differences, revenge, following your goals, and knowing when to compromise without losing focus.Review originally published at Romancing Romances.
