I loved the way Alicia Dean incorporates expressions from the 1920s to give added flavor. The characterizations are very convincing.
This is the first book I've read in the Martini Club 4 series. Can't wait to read the rest.
Eliza's luck changes when she meets an ex-boxer with "a devil of a smile and eyes like an angel." Against his own better judgment, Vince Taggart falls for the lovely young prostitute. And it's a good thing, too, because Oscar's girls are disappearing like Champagne at a flapper party.
Dean's novella is a fast fun read. A few unexplained details in this taut story seemed overlooked until I realized it is one of a four part series about roommates who frequent Club 501, a speakeasy. And the series' authors have a writers' group they call the Martini Club. How cool is that?
I, for one, will be reading more books in the series. Cheers!
Young women working in a British manor house flees the UK after being propositioned by the owner. Landing in New York she soon learns that you can move but you can't escape.
What I like
The characters felt realistic, so did the situation. The foreboding atmosphere gave the story depth. The author did a great job keeping the dialog in the 20's.
What I didn't like
Not much, though the H saving h was predictable -- but then again this is a romance novel.
Although there is romance involved, RUINED is a lovely change from all the explicitly detailed 50 Shades of Grey type books out there. Great story line, believable dialogue, and just enough romance to leave you guessing.
