Really liked this one I needed a book that was going to show me some action and not just talk about it This book fit the bill I've been reading some heavier content lately and was craving something fun and fast moving Thank you Vixen for giving me back some of the funReasons this book shined 1 Many flawed characters with secrets to hide2 Taboo interracial relationship for the time period that is how scandalous3 A good part of the time was spent in an undergound speakeasy a den of sin for the young crowd full of illegal booze smoking jazz and dancing in beaded dresses I wanted to be there4 Lots of scandal and intrigue Sometimes you just need a good drama5 Depth where you didn't expect to find depth Hey it wasn't all fluffEach chapter had a rotating viewpoint of one of the three girls Each one had a different and interesting story to tell This writing style kept the story from getting stale which I appreciated Some authors aren't able to write like this without it feeling disjointed but Larkin nailed it

Caz İçki ErkeklerBu tehlikeli bir karışımdırHer kız sahip olamadığını arzular On yedi yaşındaki Gloria Carmody bir flapper gibi yaşamak istiyor bununla birlikte gelen kısa saçları sigarayı ve müzik dolu geceleri de Artık Chicago'nun en nüfuzlu ailelerinden birinin oğlu olan Sebastian Grey'le nişanlandığına göre Gloria'nın parti günl. There should be a couldn't finish it because it was so bad shelf in addition to readto readcurrently reading As it is I've made my own but someone ask Goodreads to get on that because I think making it one of the three default shelves would be a great additionThis waswell not terrible; it was certainly competently written but it was just extremely dull If you've read The Luxe or watched Gossip Girl or hell read even one of the GG books you know all the characters already Which in and of itself might not be a problem; I like the GG show and I liked The Luxe series And I ALSO love flappers So you'd think this would be an easy sell for meThe problem is I feel like Larkin ALSO decided that the similarity to those meant she didn't have to do any work to tell me about these characters It was like she was writing by rote going down a checklist of attributes characters should have relationships etc and she never did any of the work to make me care about her versions as opposed to say watching Gossip Girl or re reading The Luxe series If she wasn't willing to do the work to make me care why should I care or put in the effort of finishing the book

Vixen by Jillian LarkNın gölgesinde yaşamaktan bıkkın Lorraine'in kıskançlığı umutsuz bir öfkeye dönüştüğünde artık kimse güvende olmayacak Ve sonunda birileri çok üzülecekYazar Jillian Larkin'in ilk kitabı Fettan her şeyin değiştiği 'lerin en hareketli döneminde geçen seksi tehlikeli ve son derece romantik bir serinin de ilk kitabıTanıtım Bültenind. This was pretty bland Sad right Alas VIXEN is an excellent example of an author not living up to the dramatic potential of her subject matterWe're given a handful of stock teen soap characterizations Gloria the Good Girl who wants to rebel; Lorraine the Bad GirlBest Friend tired of living in her shadow; Clara the Mysterious X Factor distant relation who arrives to supervise Gloria's socialite wedding plans Gloria doesn't want to marry her fiance instead she falls into insta lust with Jerome an Unsuitable Love Interest who actually is unsuitable given that he's a black piano player Meanwhile Lorraine debates between friendship climbing over Gloria to take her place atop the heap o social awesomeness Lorraine also resents that Gloria doesn't realize how awesome she's got it in the male companionship department ie Gloria's best dude friend Marcus who plays the role of Golden Hearted Playboy But when Marcus chooses Clara instead Lorraine exposes a dirty secret from her rival's pastexcept naturally her disgust backfires gets her snared by Carlito a nasty Criminal With Sex Appeal Gloria Jerome meanwhile are caught in the crossfire of speakeasy gangsterswhich leaves Jerome's sister to pledge vengeance on Gloria's former bridegroom the stereotypical Backstabbing Rich Boy Hypocrite who is tied to Carlito's crew of Capone wannabesAnd there's a midget gangster named Thor Yup P Clearly there's no shortage of plot but the personalities are wooden as hell If the author has the skill to flesh them out in future installmentswell she didn't show it here I liked Clara Jerome than the rest but even they were glorified cardboard Compounding the problem is the third person voice It's flat flat FLAT lacking any sort of personality relating events with occasional snarky comments that weren't so much funny as lamely anachronistic I do give the author props for a sprinkling of flapper era pop culture Buster Keaton movies Fitzgerald uotes The Sheik etc I also give her credit for the interracial romance angle But these positives aren't enough to boost my rating The retro lingo felt forced the characters were drab the writing wasn't strong enough to support an uber dramatic soap opera Overall a big fat 'meh' I'll stick with Anna Godbersen's flapper books for my soapy teenage prohibition drama
