A dame with brains, moxie, and killer curves, June West isn't your average flapper. She's managed to endear herself to the son of one of the most powerful gangsters in New York, earning herself a spot in the limelight that she's always longed for.
With the infamous playboy at her side, June has become accustomed to living the high life. Lavish parties, expensive clothes, sparkling jewels, nothing is beyond her reach and her dreams of making something of herself beneath the shimmering marquee lights is finally coming true. But when her carefully woven web of lies finally catches up with her, threatening the life she's worked so hard to build, she must make an impossible choice: come clean about her past and risk losing everything, or find a way to bury her demons - once and for all.
In a city glittering with possibilities, June would do anything to keep her golden dream from turning to ashes. Even if it means turning her back on the only family she's ever known.

This is June’s story which is very touching and not the gold digger that the blur makes her sound. She does have a very big secret that could not only destroy her life but the love that she has with the man she loves. Dutch is still the hateful man he has always been and if he finds out what she is hiding it might be bye bye for his son if Dutch gets to him first.
Ms. Kelly does an outstanding job with the narration in this story. She gives you a smooth clean and clear audio that pulls you in as she painting a picture you have no trouble picturing the hurt, anger and sorrow. I really enjoyed her character voices, you have no trouble knowing who is talking and what they are feeling. The confusing and excitement along with the anger comes through very clear. Her tones are even, there was no background noise or any places where the volume changed it one steady listen. Her male voices are just as good as her female ones. I had no trouble picturing and feeling June’s anger, hurt, sorrow as all she wants is being taken away along with the excitement as they play out and the disappointment when they don’t always turn out as June wants.
I was hoping to learn more about Masie and her mother but you only see her for a short time and nothing about the mother she so loves. Masie’s brother JD has been and still is a sweet heart but that could change with the flick of a tongue giving away things that are hidden. June’s whole life is built on lies and when the truth comes out it will change her life forever. Does she tell or keep things to herself?
I thought the author would go one way but she took the story down a different route which was very entertaining. I am disappointed I thought this book would pick up where the last one left off but we are still hanging on what happens to Masie and her love. I really felt sorry for June’s family even though she learned this practice from a very young age it still could not have been easy for them. If I say anymore it will give the story away. It was a good read/listen it was nice to get to know June and JD better but again you are left with tons of question and no answers. Maybe the author will bring it all in focus giving us the whole story and an ending that has closure. I was disappointed but keeping an open mind until I see where the next book takes us.
