About the Book:
“Bad Luck” Benny is a fella from the wrong side of the tracks. Recently released from jail, he has vowed to keep his head down and stay out of trouble. But he also needs to care for his ailing sister and the rest of his struggling family, and he’ll do anything to make that happen—even if it means taking a position with a notorious crime boss. He soon finds himself in over his head—and worse still—falling for the one dame on earth he should be staying away from.

Masie is the daughter of a wealthy gangster with the voice of an angel and gun smoke in her veins. Strong-willed but trapped in a life she never wanted, she dreams of flying free from the politics and manipulation of her father. A pawn in her family’s fight for control of the city, and with a killer hot on her heels, she turns to the one person who just might be able to spring her from her gilded cage. But Masie is no angel, and her own dark secrets may come back to burn them both.

Two worlds collide in this compelling story of star-crossed lovers in gritty Prohibition-era New York.
 





About the Author: Sherry is the author of over a dozen novels for teens and young adults including the best selling Stolen Empire series. She can often be found browsing her local bookstore with a large white hot chocolate in one hand and a towering stack of books in the other. That is, unless she's on deadline at which time she, like the Loch Ness monster, is only seen in blurry photographs.

Sherry also writes contemporary romance under the pen name SJ Noble. You can find her at her official website, www.sherryficklin.com, or stalk her on her Facebook page www.facebook.com/sherry.ficklin.
Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: Another outstanding story from the goddess that is Sherry Ficklin! This woman knows Historical stories! 

Check out author's other books or related books? Of course!! I will read anything she puts out! 

Recommend this book? YES if you love historical fiction or the prohibition era check this out! 

Notes and Opinions: Sherry has been a long time favorite author of mine since I read the Queen series way back when. It is still one of my all-time favorite stories.  She has a way of creating a world and making it come alive for us readers to weep over and love and this one was no different!  I read the tiny novella of this a while ago and am just now getting around to reading this one.  This is out by the way so go grab it! It won't do you wrong!  

I love historical fiction (ya who saw that coming?) This one takes us back to the singing Masie and the gang and I couldn't be happier! Were once again tossed into the roaring 20's when speakeasies were the thing and a girl with a gun was something you just saw.  Masie made this book come alive with her determination and unafraid to say what she wants even though society says differently.  

The story was thrilling and alive with wonder as Ficklin takes us through the life of Masie and Benny.  I really loved the dynamic of the book as a whole as well as the interactions between the characters.  Ficklin did a wonderful job keeping me on my toes during this one.  

The setting came alive for me in this page-turner that I couldn't put down.  I finished it in one setting and can't wait to track down a signed copy to match my others.  If you are a fan of Ficklin then make sure to check out her newest title! 

Go Into This One Knowing:  Amazing!
