Astrid - The Bookish Sweet Tooth

AUTHOR: Joanna Shupe
SERIES: Uptown Girls
RELEASE DATE: May 28th 2019
GENRE: Historical Romance
RATING:4 Stars


I've been wanting to read a Joanna Shupe story for a while. While the majority of historical romance, set in the Victorian, Regency and Georgian era takes place in Britain, I was intrigued by the US setting of THE ROGUE OF FIFTH AVENUE.

I found both Frank and Mamie very likable. I admired vivacious, Mami

This review was originally posted on Addicted To RomanceI received this book for free from Avon in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

The Rogue of Fifth Avenue is the first book in Joanna Shupe's new series "Uptown Girls" I have had a blast with what I read from this author before and I am so pleased that we are seeing more books taking place in the "Gilded Age Era" Romance readers really value seeing some unique settings that a

I had loved Joanna’s Four Hundred series, so I didn’t even need to read the synopsis of this one. I was excited to see it was Frank’s story.

Love love loved Mamie. She’s smart and strong and knows what she wants out of life. She’s genuinely good and fights for people. Frank has been intriguing since I first saw him. Turns out there’s a lot more to him than I expected. I was delighted at the banter and chemistry between Mamie and Frank and loved all of the scenes of them together.

Caffeinated Dates with The Rogue of Fifth Avenue

First Date: Marion (Mamie) Greene made a deal with her father to marry Chauncey, her childhood friend, securing a relationship between the two families and allowing her younger sisters to choose their own husbands. At the time our story begins, no official contracts have been drawn and the promise is merely a gentleman’s agreement between the parents. Mamie has been given time to enjoy society, but she secretly spends her time in gaming halls plac

I’m head over heels for this book!

I need so much more of Mamie and Frank! This book was a very pleasant surprise and my first novel by this author. The way she crafted these characters, and the chemistry between the two main ones literally made me hot under the collar. The tension could be felt of the page, and the sex scenes...I’m still lightheaded. Very well written and an excellent story. Can’t wait for more!
Oops -forgot to post this one when the review ran.

I was really pleased when I learned that Frank Tripp, high-flying lawyer to the rich and famous of Gilded Age New York, would be getting his own story in The Rogue of Fifth Avenue the first book in Joanna Shupe’s new Uptown Girls series. Handsome, charming and urbane, Frank made for an attractive, somewhat enigmatic supporting character in the recent Four Hundred series, and I was more than eager to read his story. Frank is a great character

As a fan of the Four Hundred Club, I was excited to learn that this book was going to be about a familiar secondary character from that series, the dashing and brilliant lawyer, Frank Tripp. In the previous series, Frank has been portrayed as a rakish bachelor with a knack for getting the impossible done for his clients. I wasn't sure what to expect with this book, but I am happy to say I was completed blown away - it was way better than I imagined and that is saying a lot as I had very high hop ...more

For New York's society, Marion "Mamie" Green is a young lady like all the others. For her father's lawyer, she's a beauty who light up a room. But after rescuing her from an other reckless adventure, this time at a luxurious casino, Frank Tripp is about to discover that Mamie is far from being like all the others young lady. But she's not the only one hiding something. Frank worked too hard to let his shameful past behind and his upbringing in a poor district to become the best attorney of New Y ...more

Frank Tripp is a self-made man who portrays himself as a New York blue blood, born and bred. Rising up out of one of New York's poorest neighborhoods he's a force to be reckoned within a courtroom. Said to be persuasive enough to sell a drowning man water, he's got the brains to know how to get what he wants and the drive to do whatever it takes to accomplish it. For the past three months his attention has been captured by one

I was a big fan of Joanna Shupe’s Four Hundred series! This is the first in the Uptown Girls spinoff—also set in New York’s Gilded Age—featuring a secondary character from those earlier books, attorney Frank Tripp. (You don’t have to read the other series to enjoy this story, but I recommend it, just because they were so good.)

There is more to Frank than the slick lawyer he shows the world. We learn here that Frank Tripp grew up as Frank Murphy, on the wrong side of the tracks, to an alcoholic

It is not easy to put on words all the feelings and emotions this book awakened in me.
It is my first read by Mrs Joanna Shupe and I definitely want to thank the publisher HarperCollins/Avon for providing me via Edelweiss an advance review copy.
It was so unexpected, I had to postpone all the books I intended to read this end of week, and I was very happy to oblige.

I was SO excited for Frank Tripp's story! I just knew there was more to the fascinating, charismatic lawyer! Ms. Shupe did not fail us!

Mamie is such a great character! She's fierce, knows what she wants and does what she has to to take it. She matches Frank perfectly!

Their journey and relationship made Frank grow into a better person. I had serious doubts about her father throughout the book but he came through when needed.

This did not feel like the start of a new series since we knew Frank an
I really enjoyed this! I liked both the hero and the heroine a lot. Not entirely sure about the heroine's father . . .

And, like I told Sam, I started shipping the next book's couple within the first twenty pages. That may be a record.

Anyway, time to read more Joanna Shupe, for real.

The Rogue of Fifth Avenue is the first book in the Uptown Girls series by Joanna Shupe and what a fabulous start to a new series it is. Just one look at the gorgeous cover, and a quick read of the synopsis and I was hooked.

Frank Tripp is a sought after wealthy lawyer in New York who is known for always winning his cases. He loves his job and is very good at it. What people don't know is that Frank wasn't born to a wealthy family, he had quite a rough poor beginning and has worked hard to leave a
Historicals not published in the Regency era are my jam - which makes having to admit that Shupe's writing might not be "my thing" particularly hard. This is the second book I've tried, and ultimately ended up DNF'ing. I gave up on this one at 50% partly out of indifference (I didn't care what the heck happened next) and partly because I wanted to smack the heroine into next Tuesday. The whole Poor Little Rich Girl Robin Hood shtick was...ugh. Were her intentions of helping the poor in Five Poin ...more

My favorite of Joanna’s books to date. I crown her the Queen of Gilded Age Romance. I’m loving her writing more and more each time I read her books. Captivating characters in Frank and Mamie and their respective families plus two shadowy men who might be future MMCs, very engaging storyline, hot sexytimes, admirable causes, and fantastic setting.

After starting life on the wrong side of town, attorney Frank Tripp has become a well known and sought after fixer for the elite of New York society. Now he's met an issue with no easy fix: his attraction to Mamie Greene, the distinctly off-limits daughter of one of his most prestigious clients.

Mamie Greene isn't the bored and spoiled society miss she appears to be. In truth she uses her visits to gambling clubs and seedy downtown dives to facilitate her efforts to take money from the wealthy a

Frank Tripp gets his story! If readers have read Joanna Shupe's The Four Hundred series, you will certainly remember Frank. No worries, though, because The Rogue of Fifth Avenue is the beginning of a new series and most definitely is a standalone title for a new series.

Frank Tripp is a highly respected lawyer and a partner is a big-scale law firm. When Frank runs into Mamie Greene he is quick to try to pull her out of dangerous situations. Mamie does two things: she steals from the rich to give
Joanna Shupe has been an auto-buy for me since her Wicked Deceptions series back in 2016. The characters, stories and era all manage to call to me and provide an entertaining read. Now we’ve got a new heroine to meet in Mamie Greene, betrothed upper-crust young lady and eldest of three girls. She’s agreed to her betrothal in return for her father allowing her younger sisters to marry for love – and while she and her fiancé aren’t actually involved in any great way- they have known one another si ...more

I absolutely adore Shupe’s writing, and THE ROGUE OF FIFTH AVENUE was no different. I loveee Mamie’s headstrong personality, as well as Frank’s devotion to her (and his exceptional character development). Together, they were a force to be reckoned with, and Shupe writes a chemistry-fueled hate-to-love romance with sparks and flames. I must say, Shupe’s stories just get better and better as they explore different, flawed characters and their adventures toward happily-ever-afters.

I have loved Frank from the first time I meet him back in a different series (Four Hundred). He was the trusted lawyer. The good friend. The go-to-guy. Now, we get him and his chance to have something more.

I just have a couple words to say. Sit back and enjoy the journey.

Tripp (Frank) and Mamie have an odd sort of relationship. Not quite friends. Not quite enemies. But very much in each other view. Mamie wants to help and Tripp wants to keep her out of trouble.

These two had chemistry, passion,

I've been wanting Frank Tripp's story since we first met him, and this book does not disappoint. Frank was wonderful and Mamie was his perfect foil. Definitely a book you could read over and over. Now I'm hoping for the stories of Mamie's sisters!

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 doi

"The Rogue of Fifth Avenue" is the first book I've read by Joanna Shupe, but it certainly won't be the last. I really enjoyed the well-developed characters and engaging plot, as well as the setting in Gilded Age New York City. I don't remember reading any other books set in that time period, so it was very interesting for me to learn more about it. I also found the plot details related to Mrs. Porter's criminal case to be quite intriguing. It's funny how some things about our justice system have ...more

The Rogue of Fifth Avenue is the 1st installment in a brand-new series, Uptown Girls. Shupe is relatively new-to-me, having only read two novels by her previously, the final two in the Four Hundred series. The author has me hooked, quickly rising to the top of my favorites list in historical romance. Shupe's dry wit is endlessly entertaining for this serious reader, when more other-the-top comedic situations always s

Joanna is a talented writer and her series in the Gilded Age are as close to an auto buy for me as any author could come. This was one of my most highly anticipated novels for the year. This one did have her great writing, a good amount of steam, chemistry and intriguing characters to keep me reading, but it fell just short.

The main downfall for me is the lack of meaningful interactions where the MCs shared more of themselves. During the novel, they had 1 single dinner together. The rest
