I was completely on the fence as to how rate this book. It was pretty slow in the beginning to the point that I entertained abandoning ship.

*Be fair warned, if you are an anti-cheating reader than this is not a book for you!*

Our main character Valerie starts her freshman semester in College where she rooms with an absolute wench named Charlotte. Valerie falls instantly in lust for a hot guy in her class named Ethan Richards. Val goes out of her way to sit next to him and pursue a relationship wi

I've been reading Jade's books for quite awhile now so when I was offered and ARC of Bullet I was all over that...It had ROCK STARS in it and the cover is SMOKING!!!!!!!!!! As soon as I started reading I was already........................................

This book is told from Valerie's POV! "Val" has left home to attend college! As most freshman entering college this is the first time she's ever been away from home. Val was raised by her two loving church going parents! She's had a stable home

BOOK REVIEW: Bullet – Jade C Jamison

Are you Readdddddddddy…?
It’s time to throw up the horns ladies, as ‘Bullet’ is Hard Hitting, Hot Rockin,’ Body Slammin,’ Head Bangin,’ Mind-Blowingly Amazing and will ROCK your pants off!

I’m gushing. I’m hugging my kindle right now, beaming with what I can only describe as total pure book euphoria.

Have you ever read a book and just thought, ‘Wow, I feel like the author wrote this book just for me?’ Well… Bullet, for me, is that book!

I had a hard time reading this one, I can't say I didn't like but I don't know if I liked it either. Val needed to grow a pair and tell Ethan to fuck off and this went on for about 95% of the story then finally she got her shit together. Would I recommend this book, only if you want to spend most of it wanting to punch something.

-Clay/Jet, The Rock Idol with the sensitive heart.
-Brad, Brad, Brad, The Prince Charming, loyal and caring throughout the book.
-The end she finally woke up from this ordeal.

3 Stars for Clay and Brad only.


O.K. you get the point. He was awful.I'm not gonna rant. He doesn't even deserve my hatred. I HATE him, period.
And Val is stupid.

Edited April 9th ~ 3.5 Stars

When I first wrote my review I had just finished bullet, but now that the smoke and adrenaline has cleared.. It's a good book and seemed like it a "thoughtless meets BD" type book but now I see many flaws that weighed my love down such as the time it took for Brad and her to get together. I mean it took about 90% of the book just for her to get over asshat Ethan. Which is just unnecessary. Also I felt so incredibly frustrated with this book during my re-read. I guess

4.5 stars!!!!

It was a bit of a slow start but once it got going, jeesh did it go! Val annoyed the crap out of me at the beginning but as the book went on, I was glad to have my opinion completely change! I was so happy with the ending and I love that the author went with something that wasn't entirely expected. Very different take on the HEA. Highly recommend.

What did I just read?!

*me after reading this book*



Over reacting? Possibly. But I lost several hours of my life reading this book so I think I need to vent a little.

Val comes from a conservative family and is out on her own for the first time when she starts college. Her entire life she has followed the rules and has no problem doing so. At least, she did until she met with bad boy guitarist of Bullet, Ethan. And IMMEDIATELY, she is head over a*s in love. Not crushing or lusting. IN L

This is no fairy tale romance. There are no hearts and flowers. This is a rock star romance with sex drugs and heavy metal.

I loved him, though, and poison or not, I couldn’t turn him away

Ethan had once said that he never wanted me to hate him. Well, if that were true, he shouldn’t have asked for it.

Val is a goodie virgin. She listens to her parents, doesn’t drink and has never used drugs. Ethan is everything opposite of Val, tattoos a

Valerie Quinn is a college freshman. Shes had little experience with guys so when she meets on-the-rise rock star and fellow student Ethan Richards, he’s instantly captured her heart.

But there is something about Ethan. Something damaged him from his childhood that he’s held onto all these years and Valerie tries to help him, eventually breaking down his walls. But when Valerie gives herself completely to him, that’s when she discovers he may be beyond help.

She’s determined to try and help Ethan

Half way through with reading this I was at the stage of wanting to bitch slap Val and not keep reading the book as she was starting to get on my nerves, but I'm glad I persevered, I some how found myself falling in love with this book and rooting for her to get over that scum bag Ethan and see the guy right in front of her eyes, just waiting in the background..Loved it!!

I have a huge soft spot in my heart for heavy metal music and band stories. True confession: I was a rocker chick in the 1980’s in New Jersey. At any given moment you could find me with a can of AquaNet hairspray or drum sticks in either hand. Fellow music lover, Jade C. Jamison’s latest and greatest book Bullet, is one of the most twisted, stomach churning, rock romance stories out there. Her characters will surely haunt me for a long time.

Bullet by Jade C. Jamison is NOT your typical rock star romance novel. I was expecting a sweet story of an innocent virgin college student meeting a musician, falling in love and living a happily ever after. That is definitely not what Bullet is. It’s an emotional roller coaster of love, relationships, drug abuse, and a young woman discovering herself.

This book really played with my emotions. All I kept thinking pretty much from the beginning was "I hope she doesn't fall for Ethan's crap". But like all naive 18 year olds, he reeled Valerie in hook, line and sinker. And I hated every moment of it.

This book takes you on the roller coaster that is Valerie and Ethan's relationship. And there were rarely any high points to it. He just was a selfish human being all the way through. Don't get me wrong, I believe he loved her in some way, as much as

I was honored to receive an ARC of the book. Jade C. Jamison is such an amazing author. She has a way of writing that holds you from the first word to the very last. If you love Rock Star books you will love this one. It will grip your heart, make you laugh, make you cry as you following these amazing characters through their journey in love, loss, success, pain and true happiness. This book has it all. I highly recommend this book!!!!!!!

This book started off a bit slow for me. But by 50% in I was sucked into the story. There were many times I wanted to smack Val. I did not like Ethan at all. He never appealed to me and treated Val like crap. Clay was so fun ;) But Brad is the hero to me! Very pleased with the ending and glad Val finally got it right. Good story that will have you yelling at the characters and frustrated but one that you will want to finish.

5 Conflicted Stars

"But you're the rainbow I can't touch. The forbidden fruit I want so much. Just one taste, one night together would help me endure the rest forever."
I LOVE books about rock stars, but this one had me wanting to freaking throw my iPad up against the wall. First off, if you hate books about cheating then you're probably not going to like this one. The cheating was one of the things that had me conflicted. With that said, to me Bullet portrays what I feel the "real" rock star

What a ride!!! I just finished this book and I don't want it to stop! So many emotions! Some were incredibly wonderful and some were frustrating as hell, and I absolutely felt them all!

Val and Ethan are some of the most frustrating characters I've ever read- most likely because I made some of the same mistakes they did, when I was young and stupid. Lol! It was hard to relive some of those emotions and see the mistakes they made over and over again. There were even times when I wanted to throw m

I received an ARC copy of this book and I must say if you have not read any of Jade's books yet you need to start with this one! This is Jade's best book to date.
BULLET takes you on a roller coaster ride of emotions from love and lust to friendship and more.
If you love Rockstar books you will love this one.

This is one of those books that piss you off but its still worth reading....Very well written..Ethan was a douche through the whole book, Val was a moron for loving him and putting up with his shit, Brad was awesome and Clay/Jet is **swoon** Loved the ending....

Oh man....

I hated every character at one point...
Then LOVED every character.... lol

I loved all the angst this book had.

Man I hated Ethan!!
I wanted to junk punch him so many time!

Valerie was so very naive.... which she knew she was.
I really feel in love with her character.
I could totally relate to her.

I picked this book up because of it's "Epic Rock Star Novel" reviews and I have to say... Yes, Mrs. Jade Jamison - you wrote an "Epic Rock Star Novel"! Don't be mistaken this book is a rock star story but it is so much more; a story of mistakes, consequences, maturity, relationships, friendships, and promises made. You are treated to the past and present story of Valerie over a several year time span where you will grow to love her, hate her, and sometime just want to reach into the book and sha ...more
