Great Story and Characters
Becoming a Jett Girl - Meghan Quinn

Jett owns the Lafayette Club. Goldie is all alone in the world after Hurricane Katrina but still have her parents debts to pay off. Goldie works as a waitress but is having a hard time making ends meet. Jett then sees Goldie and offers her an out by working in club. There are very specific rules to work there first you always wear a mask, no touching or sex with the people in the club. The girls don’t have to worry about any expenses and jett pays off their debt and even sends them to school. But the girls must submit to Jett at his whim. They are allowed to leave any time they want to. Also they get a very good salary. Jett has been hurt and has a wall around his heart so this works for him.

The story and plot were excellent. I loved the characters were off the wall. I really loved the ups and downs Goldie went through. Jett is kinda a butt fro the most part but he does do a lot for the girls. All I can say is one great story. I recommend.

I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.

Ok, so my first Meghan Quinn book was The Virgin Romance Novelist and it was funny as hell. So I was expecting something similar with this.
That is absolutely not what I got. This was super sexy and just a fun read.
Love Goldie/Lo. Like seriously loved her. She is so feisty and in your face.
Jett is cool, but he works my nerves. Lol, don't know why, oh wait yeah I do.
I'm #TeamKace!!!!!

[Book Review] Becoming a Jett Girl
Becoming a Jett Girl - Meghan Quinn

Goldie works hard for the money, and she has to because she has a whole lot of debt thanks to Katrina and school loans.  She works at a strip club on Bourbon St as a waitress, but dreams of taking the stage.  Then a mysterious man makes her an offer that ultimately she cannot refuse, become a dancer at the secretive Lafayette Club and share the bed of only the equally secretive proprietor, Jett Colby.

So, apparently everyone loves this book.  I mean it has 4.21/5 stars on GoodReads with 416 ratings.  The reviews are raving.

I couldn't stand it.  The characters were abrasive, the dialog crude, the plot jarring, and the eroticism strained.

So, some of my issues.

The first chapter left me wondering if I should start keeping a tally of the times the female lead called the women she worked with whores (and why is she calling them that as an insult when prostitution is how she makes ends meet?).

Goldie has a lot of debt, and I get it, student loans suck.  Epically.  But you know what you do if you aren't making income?  You call your loan holder and look into options (as someone with a lot of student debt this is something I'm very familiar with), the amount she's taking home her payments under an IBR would be next to nothing.

Moving on from that, if you're want to work the stage at a strip club, and the manager has denied this to you for nine years... you aren't going to get on the stage at that club.  A quick search via Google Maps (oh, the things I do to my search history for reviews) shows a good 10 strip clubs within a few blocks of each other on or around Bourbon St - so finding a new club to work at shouldn't be a challenge (especially with her supposedly killer moves and body):


The idea behind the Lafayette is great - Jett is going to use his ridiculous fortune to rescue girls off the street (be it abusive strip clubs or the street corner itself).  In fact, he founded it after his mother passed away, sort of in her memory, which I try not to think about too much considering it's a high-end gentlemen's club and all the dancers are his exclusive harem.  Then of course comes the fact that he's "rescuing" these girls from prostitution... to be exclusively his bed partner as repayment for the opportunity he provides for them to better themselves.

I'm not going to spoil what convinces Goldie to take the offer, but we'll leave it as problematic.  We'll leave it as for multiple reasons she was rightfully creeped out and disinclined to take the offer.

Of course, everyone wants a piece of Goldie, who apparently screws like a succubus and seduces like Aphrodite.  There's not really any chemistry between her and any of the main warring interests.  Just obsessive infatuation and lust masquerading as feelings.  Actually, there might be some decent chemistry between her and Kace, but he's pretty much sidelined.

There is a lot of lust and sex, so if you're looking for that you won't be disappointed.  I found the quality of it all to be questionable, but obviously lots of other readers loved it.

If you decide to give this book a shot and like it, Becoming a Jett Girl is the first in a trilogy.

she said "lady folds"
Becoming a Jett Girl - Meghan Quinn

This book of honestly pretty much crap.  Going to try and finish it though.

 

I'm probably laughing at all the wrong things though.  Like "lady folds"

11 pages in and already wary
Becoming a Jett Girl - Meghan Quinn

Our narrator (at least for the first chapter ) works as a cocktail waitress in a strip bar, and has been for years without ever being allowed to work the stage.

 

I'mwondering if I should start keeping tally of the number of times she refers to the other waitresses as whores, because she's off to quite a start.

 

AndI get it that tall heels take skill to maneuver in. But honey, 3" heels aren't all that impressive.  Take it from a lady with tiny feet, my heels that aren't for work check in at about 4"+ and I acquired those without going for stupid high heels.  The 4" heel in as larger size isn't much, but my feet basically disappear.  Do it in crazy platforms or 6" heels and I'll buy it.  3" heels in a non tiny size is office heels for lots of ladies.
