“This book provoked a lot of emotion in me, the main feeling being complete rage” ~ Under the Covers

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 without seriously damaging my kindle from a bout of wall throwing.

I would like to qualify this DNF review by saying that I gave it my best shot, I got 67% through before I just couldn’t take it anymore; nobody can tell me I didn’t try. But, I couldn’t continue, Becoming a Jett Girl just made me so angry! I found myself reading, then having to read again as I couldn’t believe what had just happened and that apparently it was still all hunky dory.

Lots of things annoyed me whilst I was reading this, but when it comes down to it, what made me genuinely angry about the book was the hero. He recruits desperate women, women who seem to be almost living on the street therefore having little to no choice but to say yes to his offer of becoming a Jett Girl aka join his little harem – and in the heroine’s case he actually hires someone to MUG her when she at first says no. He then goes and makes them completely beholden and grateful to him, he pays off their debts, pays for an education of their choice gives them food and luxurious shelter….all he wants in return? They have to wear what he says, eat what he says and exercise when he says and are only allowed to have sex with him and regularly get “called” to service him. And, he is of course twisting this all with the skewed view that he is doing it all for them.

It just made me so angry, he picks desperate women off the street…the stunning looking ones of course, normal women need not apply, and uses his position of advantage to get what he wants from them, all in the guise of “helping” them. If he wanted to help the homeless why didn’t he set up a women’s shelter; offer grants; rent affordable housing; give women jobs, which don’t entail sucking him off? No matter how gorgeous Jett is, or whatever he does in the future to try and redeem himself, I can’t help but feel complete disgust for him.

This book provoked a lot of emotion in me, the main feeling being complete rage, however, I don’t quite think that is what the author was going for. I can see from reviews that lot of people have loved Becoming a Jett Girl I just don’t understand why.

About Meghan Quinn

When I was in high school I occasionally read books but was consumed by other teenage things so I didn’t take the time to appreciate a good book on a cloudy day, wrapped up in a blanket on the couch, besides “The Notebook” I made time to read the heartbreaking novel.
It wasn’t until I received a Kindle for Christmas one year that my world completely flipped upside down. When looking for books, I came across the Contemporary Romance genre and was sold and I haven’t turned back since.
You can either find my head buried in my Kindle, listening to inspiring heart ripping music or typing away on the computer twisting and turning the lives of my characters while driving my readers crazy with anticipation.
I am currently residing in beautiful Colorado Springs where the sun is always shining and there is a trail waiting to be hiked on every corner. I share a lovely and warm home with the love of my life and my five, four-legged children.
