    Seriously Steamy

    I received an ARC of this book to read through Edelweiss+ in exchange for a fair review. The Rogue of Fifth Avenue is the first book in Joanna Shupe’s new series The Uptown Girls. The story takes place during New York City’s Gilded Age. Frank Tripp (Murphy) is a self made man, with hard work and a bit of luck he has taken himself from the slums of New York to High Society and as society’s favourite lawyer he has everything he ever dreamed of, so risking his secure place in life for the daughter of a client is not something he would ever consider. Marion (Mamie) Greene has known her entire life that she will become the bride of the son of her father’s good friend and business associate and she was willing to accept that but recently she’s had her eyes opened to what is happening out side of the golden bubble she dwells in and maybe she wants more than a marriage of convenience. Some seriously hot chemistry between these cannot be denied and even though there are large obstacles in their way you will root for them to find HEA. I enjoyed this story immensely and can’t wait to read about Mamie’s sisters for surely they need books too. Medium Heat.

    Loved loved LOVED it!

    How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Joanna Shupe’s The Rogue of Fifth Avenue is, if not the best, but equal to the best book she’s written thus far. I loved every single thing about it. In this American-set historical romance, we meet Frank Tripp, a respectable lawyer working for a prestigious law firm in New York City with monied clients, one of which is the wealthy father of Marion “Mamie” Greene, our lovely heroine. We first find him doing the thing he seems to do best, following her about and watching guard over her, so to speak. That’s because she has a habit of going to places in the city young ladies like her do not and should not go. He tells himself he’s doing it because her father is his best (as in richest) client but it’s obvious from the start Frank isn’t being honest with himself. Mamie is beautiful and privileged. She wants for nothing—well except the freedom to do with her life as she sees fit. She’s made it her mission to make life better for the less fortunate and becomes somewhat of a female Robin Hood, sometimes quite literally stealing from the rich to give to the poor. Which is why we first encounter her at a roulette table at the Bronze House. Where else is she going to get the money she needs? Too bad she keeps running into Frank Tripp every time she’s out and about trying to get money to do her good deeds. The man is a nuisance. He’s also sinfully attractive and does funny things to her insides. Suffice it to say, these two wonderful people are meant for each other. Their obvious attraction is the foundation of their relationship. Yes, they exchanged barbs and quips as he tries to restrain her rebellious instincts but how they feel about each other is always there simmering just beneath the surface. Ms. Shupe does a masterful job of building the sexual tension between them, layer by layer. It was a joy to read and experience. And as backstories go, I really really loved Frank’s. We learn fairly early on that he’s not exactly who he says he is. In fact, most of his life is a lie—at least what he’s told people about himself. He didn’t come from money. He didn’t go to Yale. He is in fact a fraud, but he’s made a very comfortable life for himself and he’ll do almost anything to protect that life. Of course, Mamie gets in the way of all that. Mamie has her own problems. There’s the agreement her father has with one of his oldest friends that she will marry his son. The engagement between the two families is understood and up until now Mamie had every intention of going through with it. That is up until Frank came into her life. After Frank, everything goes somewhat topsy turvy. With him she sees how empty a marriage to Chauncey Livingston would be. Then there’s the matter of case Frank takes on as a favor to Mamie. I had no idea how much I would love a secondary plot line of the case of a battered wife. It was weaved seamlessly into the main storyline and the court scene at the end left me with a huge smile on my face. And then there’s Frank’s estrangement with his family… Loved loved loved how that all worked out. The Rogue of Fifth Avenue is a must-read for all historical romance readers who love their stories with beautifully fleshed-out characters, breathless sexual tension, fan yourself, hot love scenes in an unputdownable romance. I can’t recommend this book enough. Now I’m champing at the bit to read Florence’s story (Mamie’s sister) with Clayton Madden, The Prince of Broadway, which will be out at the end of the year.

    Secrets abound in this newest Shupe book.

    Mamie doesn’t count on Frank’s persistence…or the sparks that fly between them. When fate upends all her plans, Mamie must decide if she’s willing to risk it all on a rogue. Will Frank be her savior or the rogue he appears to be? Frank has well kept secrets of his own. He appears to be a high born young lawyer with much to offer but behind that facade he hides a past of poverty and abuse. Will his lady choose to stay after discovering his past? I loved this well written start to a new series and could not put it down. I in fact am already re-reading it even though it has yet to release. I gave it 4.9 of 5.0 stars for story line and characterization. I received a complementary digital ARC of this book to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

    Fabulous beginning for the Uptown Girls series

    Imagine, living in NYC at the turn of the 20th century. Elevated trains, Uptown and Downtown NYC being very different places, although the same city. Some having all the money they'll ever need, some having nothing and no hope. You're one of three pampered princesses who don't ever have to do a lick of work. You have friends who do nothing except talk about clothes and what parties they'll be attending. You, though, have a conscience. You can't live with the inequality of life in the big city. You decide to help some of the people you see struggling. You'll do anything it takes to fund these ventures. You're almost found out and have to work a deal to continue. Falling in love wasn't something you looked for, but it's found you. Imagine, being born into poverty. Hating it, but seeing no way out of it. You finally have a chance to make something of yourself, but you have to leave everything behind. Your family, your way of life, everything has to change. You succeed, but feel that your low born beginnings will reflect poorly on you ability to get to the top of your game. You hide. You claw your way to the top, and the very person you can't have, is the one you want. Now the lies you've told are beginning to bubble to the surface. Will you be able to keep your hard won position, or will your humble beginnings topple your tower? Will love be able to overcome the lies? I loved Mamie and Frank's story. Two people from such different backgrounds, working towards the same goals of equal treatment and opportunities for all. A woman who doesn't want for anything, but wants everything for others. A man who has left his family behind, finally finding the true meaning of family. The writing is superb and you can tell there has been much research into the time period. I loved the 400 series and can't wait to learn more about the Uptown Girls!
