I think I’ve talked about the book SPEAK EASY before. It’s a fantastic New Adult book with a “Boardwalk Empire meets Gastby” flavor – set during Prohibition and beautifully written by author Melanie Harlow. I, for one am super excited because there is about to be a sequel — SPEAK LOW. And NOW would be a great time to pick up SPEAK EASY – since it’s only 99 cents this week!
We always want what we can’t have.
Tiny O’Mara is tired of living in a world where men make all the rules. After bootlegging enough whiskey to free her father from the DiFiore crime family, twenty-year old Tiny is determined to gain her independence.
But it’s going to cost her.
Her alliance with sultry Enzo DiFiore is based more on their explosive chemistry than loyalty or trust. But she’s promised him some information that will help him take revenge on The River Gang, and when he offers her a job, an apartment, and the prospect of nights spent together where anything goes, she can’t refuse—which only puts her further in his debt.
She needs gorgeous childhood pal Joey Lupo to help her again—when they’re not at each other’s throats, they make a good team, and her attraction for him is becoming impossible to deny. But after she rejects his offer to leave town together, he’s tempted to let her fend for herself.
As Enzo’s need for possession and power escalate and her feelings for Joey deepen, Tiny realizes her mistakes. She just hopes she gets the chance to fix them before it’s too late.
