I don't give out a ton of one star ratings, but if I do you know the book really made me angry. Unfortunately this is the case for The Prince of Broadway. I thought for sure this was going to be a huge hit for me considering how much I loved the previous book and enjoyed this author's writing. Not only that, but Clay and Flo were such compelling ...more

Insta-lust reared it’s ugly head very early on and that makes a boring read for me, especially when they don’t fight that attraction all that long.
I also found the casino lessons and all the talk of the different games at ...more

Powerful casino owner.Ruthless mastermind.Destroyer of men.
He lives in the shadows . . .
As the owner of the city’s most exclusive casino, Clayton Madden holds the fortunes of prominent families in the palms of his hands every night. There is one particular family he burns to ruin, however, one that has escaped his grasp . . . until now.
She is society’s ...more
I loved The Rogue of Fifth Avenue , but wow, I cherish Florence. I harbor a soft spot for competent hot messes, and Florence's determination to make a future for herself (while also giving ladies a safe space for vices and giving her family/convention the finger) was really endearing.
It had been a ...more
To say Florence is unconventional is an understatement. She wants to open her own casino for women as a means to gain her independence, to make her own choices, to determine her own future. Clayton agrees to tutor her in casino management all the while pursuing his vendetta against Florence’s father.
When you go on blind for a book that you don’t even read the blurb ( but you’re going for it because your love for the author’s stories has no limits) you never know what to expect. I wanted to read Florence’s story from the minute I’ve finished Mamie’s book.
The haven of vice and sin will always hold a mystery for anyone, but for someone who wants to know everything about it, could be a dangerous place. A place where the players will have to ...more
Florence Greene is the middle daughter and is a society, uptown girl. Her goal in life is to open a casino that caters only to women. She's not interested in marriage and children. That is why she goes to Clay Madden. Madden is owner of one of the most prosperous casinos in the city. Florence wants for him to be her mentor.
During their first meeting he is upfront about his feelings towards her and how he is working on some ...more
(view spoiler)[I really liked that Madden revealed his intentions early on instead of dragging the “secret revenge” and that being the only point of conflict between them. (hide spoiler)]
I love Anna. Please please please somebody tell me she’ll have her own book. “Women must worry about other women,” she snapped. “God knows men won’t do it”. Have I mentioned that I LOVE ANNA?
I don’t like ...more
I'm smiling as I think about this book. I'm a sucker for a casino and a woman with a plan. The tension between the two characters is delicious. There's this one scene, during a police raid, which is allllll the chili peppers hot. And they're honest with each other about what they want! Well, a few things might be omitted here or ...more
I enjoyed reading about the casinos and a historical that takes places outside of England.
The revenge plot was a bit weak. ...more

This story was filled with passion and heat from the very start. An excellent continuation of the ...more
Ms Shupe does such a good job of bringing to life the NYC of that time that whenever I go there I am comparing how much the city has changed
For a novel set in the 1890s, this felt surprisingly relevant to now. The challenges the women of the ...more
