Vice or Virtue
Author: Jamie Brenner
Series: The Gin Lovers #4
Published by St. Martin's Griffin
Released: October 22, 2012
Genres: Historical Romance
If this serial had been published as a full length book to begin with, this is where I would scream “Now we are talking!“. Why? Because everything is coming to a head, all the different strands of individual plots are entangled and have now created a perfect storm and chaos.
Jake is trying to make more money by going deeper into his bootlegging businesses so he can offer Charlotte enough money and security that she could leave her husband and still support her mother. I have to say that their star crossed lovers story warms my heart. Everytime they are in danger or have another obstacle to face, I keep sitting here rooting for them to succeed or not get caught. I love how they are both fearless and single minded in what they want and will stop at nothing to get there.
Then there’s Mae, now being forced to straighten up her life, ends up engaged! And what an unexpected and unlikely alliance there. I am curious to see how this will affect the final plot and what role he will be playing. Can’t be anything good.
Charlotte’s husband, William, really ticked me off in this book. His high handed behavior with everyone makes me despise him. He’s got Charlotte trapped in her own home and his sister being forced into a marriage so he can access his inheritance.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me) and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
