Power . . . love . . . scandal . . . 
There’s never enough to go around. 

In the city that never sleeps, Lorraine Dyer is wide awake. Ever since she exposed Clara Knowles for the tramp she was—and lost her closest confidante in the process—Lorraine has spent every second scheming to make her selfish, lovesick ex–best friend pay for what she did. No one crosses Lorraine. Not even Gloria. 

True love conquers everything—or so Gloria Carmody crazily believed. She and Jerome Johnson can barely scrape together cash for their rent, let alone have a moment to whisper sweet nothings in the dark. And if they thought escaping Chicago meant they’d get away with murder . . . they were dead wrong. 

Clara was sure that once handsome, charming Marcus Eastman discovered her shameful secret, he’d drop her like a bad habit. Instead, he swept her off her feet and whisked her away to New York. Being with Marcus is a breath of fresh air—and a chance for Clara to leave her wild flapper ways firmly in the past. Except the dazzling parties and bright lights won’t stop whispering her name. . . . 

INGENUE is the second novel in the sexy, dangerous, and ridiculously romantic Flappers series set in the Roaring Twenties . . . where revenge is a dish best served cold.

Ohhhh historical fiction. What did I ever do to you?

First of all I had hard time remembering all the characters from the first book. Like, this book is written in 4 girls point of view and a girl like me could get confused between them. It happens.

Again, I found a problem in not thinking that's how people of the 20s spoke like that. They speak in a such a modern way ( but hey what do I know)?

The good points: there were still the elements of mystery, love and passion all over this book. I was getting excited in every chapter but not till the end. At the end of the book, I felt like the story line had taken forever to build up. And so I skipped most of the ending.

It reminds me alot of gossip girl, the show. 

Maybe historical novels are not for me. Maybe.
