What to do? What to do? Do I give it 2 stars? 2.5 stars? 3 stars? I think I'm going to have to go with 2.5--and that's all because of Brad! Brad--sadly, for me you were THE only redeeming quality for this book. This book was just not.for.me.

Let's start from the beginning....the title--Bullet. Could there have been a more appropriate name? It perfectly describes how I felt throughout the entire book...

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 with him. To h

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.

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.

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 and all.

This is their story.

Be prepared for, tons of hook-ups, partying, drinking, drug usage, angst, intense sexual tension, fighting, crying and jaw-dropping, throw-your-e-reader-against-the-wall, hair-pulling-out CRAZY MOMENTS!

…. I know I need a breather too.

The beginning starts with the end. Val is with Ethan in the future and then we are flashed back to how they got together. Mostly this is what Bullet is about, Val and Ethan’s relationship.

Bullet.Is.No.Easy.Ride.

Oh, I don’t think you’re prude, val. You just haven’t met your drug of choice, and you definitely haven’t met the right guy

I liked Val, I thought she was an interesting Heroine and it was nice to see her grow and mature throughout the read. But damn, that girl got around! She hooks up with guy after guy after guy. I guess that’s what happens when you like a guy who is in a heavy metal band with 3 other sexy dudes. Usually this would bother me, but it was interesting to see how Val reacts to each person and what she learns from each relationship/hook-up. I really did feel like she owned her own skin in the end.





Now, Ethan. Oh Boy. Where do I begin?! Ethan is an anti-Hero. You will want to reach into your eReader and punch him in the face… multiple times. I get it, he’s sexy, he knows how to play guitar, he has Daddy issues, loves to drink, do drugs and have sex with many woman. However, there’s some redeeming moments I found in Ethan and it gives you a glimpse of hope that there is a future for them.

I can honestly say Bullet makes me as a reader go out of my comfort zone. Yes, I like hearts and flowers, yes I like swoony moments and yes I want my Hero to be virtually perfect, so you see how Bullet put me on edge. Let’s just say I am more pop than heavy metal, HOWE VER, I appreciate the complexity of Bullet.

Bullet is Raw, Gritty, and Dirty

If you like crazy love stories with shocking after shocking moments then Bullet is for you (and I know many of you readers love those kind of reads).

Also, If you are anything like me, you need your HEA and you will get that in Bullet, you may just have to a take Valium or two before you get there.



An ARC was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review

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.

i received this book for an honest review from the author and honest you shall get!!!

I am sitting here at my computer sobbing, literally sobbing over this book. I went through a box of tissues and a packet of tums. IN-FREAKING-TENSE was this book.

I am a fan of really emotional, gut wrenching, tear your heart out and stomp on it while it lays on the floor kinda books!! This book sooooooo qualifies.

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.

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,

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.

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!!!!!!!

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.

Valerie is an 18 years-old living away from her conservative parents for the first time

"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 life is/>

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 my kindl

- Ethan is as boring now as he was at the beginning of the book, his character developement is non-existent.

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....

“Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” While you’re more likely to see Jade headbanging instead of Dirty Dancing, she—like Baby—won’t be put in a corner…or a box.
