On the streets of New Orleans, sins are committed every night.

My name is Jett Colby and I save tarnished souls.

In the downtown, under the glittery lights of Bourbon Street, I found her in cheap lingerie, flaunting her body for callous men and money.

From the lace of her cheap lingerie, to her garter belt, I knew she had to be saved.
She had to be mine.

Well, shit sticks.
I loved Meghan Quinn's The Virgin Romance Novelist so I was request crazy when I saw this book come up on Netgalley.

Now I'm gonna admit, the sexy times in this book were hot as heck. Ms. Quinn nails that with a sense of fun that I do find refreshing.

Goldie works in a bar as a waitress, think Hooters on steroids. She barely makes ends meet so she has sex with a dude for money to help with the bills.

This is a quick review..

My Views : Amazing! This is my second book by this author and I’m absolutely loving her work. Yes, the storyline wasn’t really great but her writing and characters totally made me enjoy this one.

Style of writing : Her writing is refreshing. This is the reason why I’m going to read more of her books.

Characters : Goldie is the smart-ass mouth heroine who made Jett, the alpha pant all over her. I love her as a heroine, my God did she made me laugh my a

If you've read the original Bourbon series by Meghan Quinn, then this book will seem familiar. And for those of you who haven't... Well, you're definitely in for a treat!

This book is crazy! Goldie's internal monologues caused me to shudder in equal amounts of disgust and excitement. The labels she gave lady parts (ex. meat curtains?) were pretty gross. But her absurdity is what made her hilarious. I'm just not sure if I was laughing with her or at her.

DNF at 65%

But this was simply not the book for me. I won't go into many details, but I just wasn't feeling the story or the characters. Considering that the hero and the heroine didn't even really have any interaction until almost half way, and I felt more of a connection between her and a side character...well it was time to cut my losses.

This was my first book by Meghan Quinn, and I'll gladly read future books by her. But this one didn't work for me. But don't let my DNF deter you. There's pl

Loved it! This is my favorite book by Meghan Quinn for sure!

The premise of this book is quite unique. I really liked the whole exclusive night club scene. It all felt so classy and sexy.

Jett was amazing! I love him! He can be an ass at times, but he has such a big heart. He’s sexy, loyal and so caring. He’s a total alpha and so irresistible!

Goldie was great too! She has no filter and I loved that! I can imagine being her friend and having so much fun!

Ever had that book that made you utter over and over the words "OH.MY.FUCKING.GOD!"? Damn! That's Bourbon Sins by Meghan Quinn for me. I am so used by this author's romantic comedy books and that one time she made me cry so damn hard because of her Dear Life. But now, with this series? What can I say? Again... OH.MY.FUCKING.GOD!!!

Becoming a Jett Girl is the first book I have ever read by Meghan Quinn although she is a well established author. The blurb is incredibly enticing and I signed up to read and review as soon as I saw it!

Basic synopsis – Goldie/Lo is working as in a low class, seedy strjointip club serving drinks and aspires to greater things. Namely stripping. She’s all alone in the world having been orphaned during Hurricane Katrina and saddled with her late parents’ debts. She’s struggling to make ends meet an

In a city where sin is committed every night and washed away the next morning, you meet a domineering but sophisticated man, Jett Colby. He is the owner and proprietor of the Lafayette club where women who have nothing left in life are hand picked to be performers for the members of the very exclusive and swanky club.

The Jett Girls are never naked, they are never touched and no one knows who they are. Their personas are completely anonymous, they wear masks around the club and are always in uni
Suzanne (Under the Covers Book blog)

The Romance World is a weird and at times wonderful place, the men and women transform in to heroes and heroines and we allow them to get away with so much more than their real life counterparts ever could. The hero has to kidnap the heroine and keep her in a log cabin in the mountains to keep her safe? Perfectly understandable and the log fire just adds ambiance. However, this book crossed the line of what I find acceptable and what just made me so angry that I couldn’t continue reading it

Long story short – Jett Colby is a man who gets what he wants.

He brings down and out girls into his LaFayette Club and “helps” them.
He feed’s them, clothes them, gives them a job, pays off all their debts and makes them get an education. They are free to go whenever they like.

All he asks for in return is a few simple things like wearing masks in front of the customers, dressing how he likes, using the name he gives you, never disclosing anything about being a Jett Girl.

Whoa whoa whoa! I am used to Meghan Quinn’s romantic comedy so this is quite a nice surprise – different, erotic, naughty, and definitely mouthwateringly sexy.

The Bourbon Sins is the first book of the Bourbon series of four books. Jett is a powerful man. He owns the most exclusive gentlemans club in New Orleans. Each of the women is handpicked by the owner himself to be a “Jett girl". Jett is mysterious, sexy, and brooding but has a heart of gold. His mission is to help the girls who are destitu

I am in love with this book. Seriously in love. I've been in such a reading slump lately and needed something different! This book was it. It is so well written and captures you from the very first chapter. You are not going to want to put it down, so starting it at night like I did is not a good idea. I so want to be a Jett Girl.

I have always been a Meghan Quinn fan, so when I saw that she had re-released her Becoming a Jett Girl series I had to get around to reading it finally. I loved it as it was set in New Orleans and after being there in May 2017, it sparked memories of the places as Meghan had Goldie set up a store in Jackson Square, visit Cafe Dumond for the beignets and Bourbon Street fun and even mentioning the morning sanitation crew which I too was impressed with.

I really like Meghan Quinn, and The Virgin Romance Novelist was one of my 5-star reads for 2015. It was absolutely hilarious. So when I saw she had a series set in my city, I was quick to request it. Unfortunately, the storyline and characters are just not working for me.

Don't get me wrong, the book is well-written and I find no fault with that. I just flat don't like these characters. And that happens sometimes, you are not going to like everyone you meet or read. For me, Goldie was just way t

I picked this up after I read The Virgin Romance Novelist and wanted to see what else Ms. Meghan could write about. Let me tell you something - this woman knows how to suck you into a story - hook, line and sinker!!

Well, well, well what do we have here?

When I saw the teasers for the re-release of this series, I was drawn to the mysterious sex on a stick that seemed to represent Jett. The man, the club, the girls...It was enticing, intriguing.

This storyline was fun to read; it was unique and so different to what I’m used to reading from this author. Don’t get me wrong, it still had the hilarious, laugh out loud moments that is Meghan Quinn. Even though the story flowed seamlessly, I did have a hard time getting into the book but once I did, I couldn’t put it down.

I have mixed emotions about this book. I know it's about becoming a Jett girl but really I wish it was about becoming a Kace girl. I just have to get that out there.

Goldie is working at a sleazy strip club trying to make ends meet when she serves (she's a waitress) two men in a secluded booth. She is instantly aware of them just by the sound of their voices. She never sees their faces. But with her tip is a card with her name and a phone number with the logo of the Jett girls.

Goldie is funny and a firecracker and had me laughing throughout the whole book and her snappy comments and quick witted comebacks.

Jett is hot and powerful and will definitely leave you begging for more with his sexy voice and commanding presence.

Guys, I’m a huge fan of Meghan Quinn. I’ve loved all the books I read from her, so even though a was a bit weary of this blurb, I still gave it a shot. It was also an absolute surprise, because I wasn’t quite expecting to receive this book to review. But let’s move on…

So, kudos to Meghan Quinn, because her writing is awesome as usual. Erotica is not usually an easy genre to insert comedy into, and Meghan did that, and she did it well. I have to say though, that given that t
