Waiting on Wednesday: Vixen by Jillian Larkin

Vixen (Flappers, #1) by Jillian Larkin
Release date:
December 14, 2010

Every girl wants what she can’t have. Seventeen-year-old Gloria Carmody wants the flapper lifestyle—and the bobbed hair, cigarettes, and music-filled nights that go with it. Now that she’s engaged to Sebastian Grey, scion of one of Chicago’s most powerful families, Gloria’s party days are over before they’ve even begun . . . or are they?

Clara Knowles, Gloria’s goody-two-shoes cousin, has arrived to make sure the high-society wedding comes off without a hitch—but Clara isn’t as lily-white as she appears. Seems she has some dirty little secrets of her own that she’ll do anything to keep hidden. . . .

Lorraine Dyer, Gloria’s social-climbing best friend, is tired of living in Gloria’s shadow. When Lorraine’s envy spills over into desperate spite, no one is safe. And someone’s going to be very sorry. . . .

From debut author Jillian Larkin, VIXEN is the first novel in the sexy, dangerous, and ridiculously romantic new series set in the Roaring Twenties . . . when anything goes.


I seriously can't get over how pretty this cover is. I actually hadn't really heard of this book until other reviewers started getting it in their mailboxes. It seems like aside from Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen, this is one of the first YA historical fiction novels set during the Jazz Age. I actually took an entire class on Jazz Age literature in college (allow me to summarize: good and interesting but depressing) so I'll be curious to see how I like these.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine.

  1. I am actually waiting to read Fahrenheit 451 when the dust settles in my house. Other people I know will be waiting to read Blood, Money, Power, a historical fiction novel based in two time periods, showcasing a struggle within a family for wealth - having many elements to overwhelm the reader with enough plot to dive into.

  2. I'm excited for this one too! I read Bright Young Things and I loved reading about the 20's and flapper girls! So I'm hoping I'll love this book too!
