Of course she ended up in Ibiza- the capital of hedonism with a worldwide reputation of ‘anything goes’.“It’s very funny to read what happens when a range of dodgy characters try to show her who’s boss, and how her complete disbelief in their childish ways causes things to explode.Club workers will recognize the elements she came across right away since greed, disorganization, intoxication and inflated egos are never far when you scratch the underbelly of any club industry, particularly in the cut-throat world of Ibiza.”- Ministry of SoundJ-sus C-rist, you stupid .. white girl, what the f-ck did you think was going to happen when you decided to start bossing around a bunch of jaded Eurotrash cokeheads a decade older than yourself?- Chicago Center for Literature and Photography.“It will be obvious from the start to any veteran of the island which club Jennifer worked in, but to protect the innocent and potentially embarrassed names have been omitted. That done, the slanging match can safely begin.… there was a fair bit of gossip including suggestions of stalking and hilarious outbursts of expletives by a frustrated boss with a limited command of the English language.”- The Ibiza Sun.“I need this book in my library!”- Brasilio de Oliveira“Jennifer Eric’s Ibiza Virgin… a Master’s thesis that went Pete Tong.”- Ibiza Books, ibiza-blog.com“It gives you a picture of the madness of the nightlife and the party business- it’s telling the pure truth about the touristic clubbing service industry.”- my-ibiza.net
