Review: The Bourbon Sins (Bourbon 1) by Meghan Quinn

Bourbon Sins.jpg


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 destitute, providing them with a job, food, logging and even free education.  All he asks in return is that they “submit to him” at any time but only with their consent.  Jett has been burned in the past so this time around he does not fancy a relationship or love.  He is only in for a good time with no strings attached.

“But see, that’s the thing about this city; you might think that under the dazzling lights and illusion of salvation, she’s the one that needed saving.
When the glitter fades and the dirt is washed away, the one worth saving just might be me.”

 Goldie is at the end of her rope – working at a lowly night club with a nasty boss, barely making ends meet.  Goldie caught Jett’s eyes the first time when she was found sitting on Jett’s mothers tomb stone in a cemetery.  Jett was intrigued by the beauty, curvy, sweet faced girl and he was determined to make Goldie one of his Jett girls.  Jett is in for a surprise though because Goldie is anything but submissive.  She has no brain to mouth filter and is not afraid of challenging her sexy boss.  Goldie is driving Jett nuts but in a way, that’s what Jett loves about Goldie – her spirit, her sassiness, and her cheerful way of going about life.  Goldie is pretty adorable.  I think she was starting to go down a dark path but Jett saved her.  Goldie wears her heart on her sleeve and she is not afraid to let her feelings known.  Will Jett be able to return her affection or is his heart too broken to ever love another?

This book is pretty fun, sizzling hot, with a light-hearted plot.  There is a third character Kace who is Goldie’s immediate boss.  Kace has some kind of secret crush on Goldie which complicates the relationship he has with Jett.  He is an important character, sweet, caring and a little mysterious – I feel like there should be more to him…maybe book 2?  There is also a little drama with Jett’s deadbeat dad and Goldie’s ex-bed buddy which makes the plot more interesting and dramatic.

Over all, this is a nice introduction to a very sexy new series.  I didn’t expect this kind of genre from Meghan and I am intrigued to see what comes next.  I was thoroughly entertained.


Bourbon Sin T1




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.

Broke and destitute with no way of out, she had no choice but to come to me and into my club.

She had no other choice but to become a Jett Girl.

But see, that’s the thing about this city; you might think that under the dazzling lights and illusion of salvation, she’s the one that needed saving.

When the glitter fades and the dirt is washed away, the one worth saving just might be me.

The walls of my club hold many secrets. Depravity. Sin. Justice.

Come in; debauchery can be yours for the cost of a lap dance and a night of pleasure.

And I own every last part of it.

But she’s my weakness, and thankfully she followed me through the insolvent streets of New Orleans, giving me her loyalty and her heart.

My desire for her dominates my every thought, but my broken past could destroy us.

There are people trying to bring me down.

Two malicious men stand in the way of what I want: to own it all.

It’s either Lot 17 or Goldie, my Jett Girl.

I have to make a choice and for once, it won’t be easy.

Under the neon lights of Bourbon, money is everything.

Justice, faith, and power. They’re the key to my empire and she holds them all in the palm of her hand. Falling for her was a mistake; she stole my heart and consumed me. I was addicted, and she left me weak and vulnerable to my enemies.

They’re everywhere.

Now she’s gone, turning to my enemy’s business partner; the man I’ve hated my entire life. She said she’s protecting me. She said it won’t be forever.

But how can I believe her?

Lies, deceit and deception. They’re the sins driving us apart.

In a city that never sleeps—in a place where scandal hides behind every dark corner, my Jett girl might never be mine again.

Every choice you make in life comes with a consequence.

I was once on top, I was the professional boxer to be afraid of. I had everything I could possibly hope for. I was happy, satisfied, content . . . until one night.

One off day.

One wrong reaction.

I killed a man. The sound, the blood, the stagnant air, it’s forever imprinted in my mind and now dictates the way I live my life.

Desolate with nothing but my penance to pay, I didn’t expect to have my world flipped upside down when Lyla seductively strutted into my life.

I want her. I need her. I crave her.

But I don’t deserve her.

People like to celebrate the day they were born, I like to celebrate the day my soul died.

This is my story of repentance.
