“Bad Luck” Benny is a fella from the wrong side of the tracks. Recently released from jail, he has vowed to keep his head down and stay out of trouble. But he also needs to care for his ailing sister and the rest of his struggling family, and he’ll do anything to make that happen—even if it means taking a position with a notorious crime boss. He soon finds himself in over his head—and worse still—falling for the one dame on earth he should be staying away from.

Masie is the daughter of a wealthy gangster with the voice of an angel and gun smoke in her veins. Strong-willed but trapped in a life she never wanted, she dreams of flying free from the politics and manipulation of her father. A pawn in her family’s fight for control of the city, and with a killer hot on her heels, she turns to the one person who just might be able to spring her from her gilded cage. But Masie is no angel, and her own dark secrets may come back to burn them both.

Two worlds collide in this compelling story of star-crossed lovers in gritty prohibition-era New York.

My Review: Benny is out and on the path to stay out of jail for good. But he also needs to take care of his family. He's willing to do anything, even if it means working in  a job that can land him right back behind bars...

Masie is  strong willed gal with a voice of an angel. Not to mention she may just have caught Benny's eye. He can't stay away from her. He can't but fall for her, demons and all. But will the world's collide and complicate things? Can they make it through it and start a fresh new life together?

I will say that I loved this book. Loved how Sherry took the time period and turned it into a page turner you can't forget.
