Vixen - Jillian Larkin Really liked this one. I needed a book that was going to show me some action and not just talk about it. This book fit the bill. I've been reading some heavier content lately and was craving something fun and fast moving. Thank you Vixen for giving me back some of the fun!Reasons this book shined :1. Many flawed characters with secrets to hide2. Taboo interracial relationship (for the time period that is - how scandalous!)3. A good part of the time was spent in an undergound speakeasy - a den of sin for the young crowd, full of illegal booze, smoking, jazz, and dancing in beaded dresses. I wanted to be there!4. Lots of scandal and intrigue. Sometimes you just need a good drama.5. Depth where you didn't expect to find depth. Hey, it wasn't all fluff!Each chapter had a rotating viewpoint of one of the three girls. Each one had a different and interesting story to tell. This writing style kept the story from getting stale, which I appreciated. Some authors aren't able to write like this without it feeling disjointed, but Larkin nailed it.
