Bourbon Street Blues (Scotty Bradley Series #1) based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This is the first book I've read from Herren, and I liked it. At first, Scotty really got to me. I thought he was really very conceded about himself and his body. I wanted to see him knocked down a peg or two. But, by the end of the story, I realized he was just repeating himself, like he was trying to convence himself that he was very hot, even though he has few to none clients. I could tell that Herren really lives and loves his town of New Orleans. It's like you are truely there, that no other author can write. Some of the characters do seem hard to believe. Like they are too fictional! In my opinion, David Thomas Lord writes better sex scenes and body descriptions. I enjoyed this book, and plan to read more of Herren's novels. Scotty lives a normal eveyday life as a go-go dancer, until his friend returns from one year ago. Scotty is in possession of a disk that could ruin the political career of right wing Perkins. Scotty, with the help of a trick/cat burglar and a FBI agent, they are forced to put a stop to Perkins insane plot, or die.
He has known for a long time that he is gay and feels very lucky that his parents are proud of his orientation. Scotty Bradley has the body of a go-go boy and for many years he earned money stripping on the gay club circuit. Nowadays, he lives in his native New Orleans working as a personal trainer, stripping only when he needs an influx of cash. He looks forward to Southern Decadence, a gigantic Mardi Gras party aimed at the gay audience.................. The night before the party, Scotty dances at a club when he sees an old friend who needs his help. Scotty tells Jeremy to meet him at his apartment, but in the meantime he and fellow dancer Collin hit it off and spend the night together. Scotty wakes up to find a computer disc in his boot and when he hooks up with Jeremy, he learns that on that CD is the plans to blow up New Orleans by a right wing candidate running for governor. Collin, who turns out to be a cat burglar, disappears, leaving Scotty to deal with the redneck killers who want the disc back and a sexy FBI agent who wants to use the stripper as bait........................ BOURBON STREET BLUES is campy, funny and never takes itself seriously. The lead character enjoys being sexy and buff yet despite his flirtatious ways and his pursuit of pleasure he does have a conscience and is determined to do his best to expose the villains and save his beloved New Orleans. Greg Herren gives the audience a tantalizing glimpse of New Orleans from a different perspective, but the city remains as appealing as ever............... Harriet Klausner
