You might think you know Brad’s story, but think again. There’s so much more to his story than what Valerie knew. See Brad before Valerie came into his life and, when he was playing back burner to Ethan, see what Brad was up to when no one else in the band was looking.

Valerie might have thought she and Brad were inevitable and maybe, in the back of his mind, Brad might ha

I recevied this book from the author for an honest review.

*Sigh* Incase you don't already know, I am a Bradley Payne groupie. I loved everything about him in this series and was literally going crazy waiting, waiting, WAITING for this book. I mean he is Daddy Brad *SWOON* Yes I will go toe to toe with anyone who says he is their book boyfriend.

So... I LOVED Bullet even though it drained the life out of me! Seeing the same story through Brad's eyes brought a better understanding to the missing pieces of Bullet. We know what was in Val's heart, and we wondered time and time again why she couldn't just see past Ethan for one minute and realize what was right in front of her...and for me, we wondered where Brad's head was all this time that he stood by and held that never ending flame for Val. In Fully Automatic you get to see that the gu ...more

First of all, I love Jade and everything about Jade. She could write a book about a dog giving birth to cats and I would probably love it..... it's her style of writing that grabs you and makes you fall in love Emotionally with her characters. You feel every emotion they are feeling.

Second...I received this ARC for an honest review from Jade and her team.

Oh Brad!! I thought I knew all about you!! After reading Fully Automatic (Brad 's POV) I feel like I can honestly say I do!! I was worried just a smidge that this was gonna be Bullet, just told in Brads POV but I couldn't have been more wrong. I don't know why I even doubted Jade =) She has yet to let me down.

Brad didn't get to Val quickly and in Fully Automatic we get a behind the scenes look at the fun he had while waiting in the shadows to get his one TRUE girl. I lo

I was fortunate enough to receive an advanced copy of this book. If you have been reading the Bullet series this is Brad's story. It is not Bullet told from Brad's POV, although there is some of the book that is that. Brad's story involves Val and Ethan and a lot of what happened in Bullet made Brad the man he was, so yes some of it will be familiar from Bullet. However, Fully Automatic is so much more. Brad clearly got up to some fun stuff while no one was watching. I have to say I was firmly o ...more

I won an ARC a few weeks back I haven't read "Bullet" I had decided that I would just go ahead and read this one first then go back to read Bullet later. I loved Brad but sometimes I didn't know if I wanted to choke him, slap the sh*t out of him or jump in the book and hold him for the emotionally trauma he had with Valerie. Brad was totally committed to keeping Valerie in his heart no matter what side she was on especially when she was Ethan's girlfriend then eventually his wife. I know I shoul ...more

I started this book tentatively because, well to put it simply, I love Ethan and all his flaws, and I just hadn’t warmed to Brad in the previous books.

Having assumed this was just going to be Brad's POV, I was sorely mistaken; it was so much more. Yes, the storyline mirrored previous books but you got to see a completely different side to Brad from that seen from Ethan's perspective.

Brad has been in love with Valerie Quinn since he first laid eyes on her but unfortunately, for him, Val’s eyes w

I was surprised Jade Jamison decided to write a book in Brad Payne’s POV. In Bullet, I found his character a bit aloof. But because I love the Bullet series so much and Jade’s writing, I knew I was going to read his story. I wasn’t disappointed. Fully Automatic is a wonderful chronicle of the birth of a hard rock band in all it’s dirty, gritty details.

If you like Brad in Bullet then you will absolutely fall in love with him after reading Fully Automatic!

I’ve always heard the saying that there are three sides to every story, his side, her side, and the truth, while I’m not sure how accurate that is but, I do know that we’ve heard Val and Ethan’s side, now we get to hear things from Brads point of view, so which side is the truth? I’m not sure we’ll ever quite know the answer to that, but I’d like to believe it’s a little bit of all 3.

Patience is a virtue and on that note, Brad is the most virtuous man I know to wait for Valerie...through Ethan and Jet and her own insecurities. I adore Brad...I was a huge supporter of his during BULLET and yet I always felt a little sympathy for Ethan especially after reading Rock Bottom. BUT Fully Automatic really gives me and the whole world a deeper insight into both Brad and Ethan's true natures and I'm left with I WANT A BRAD!!

I was so excited to read Brad’s story. Back in Bullet #1 I fell in love with Brad and really felt for him, caught up in Ethan and Val’s turbulent relationship. Reading this I fell even harder for him. I just wanted to give him a big bear hug, ruffle his hair and make him smile! I couldn’t think of him as a book boyfriend because I got swept away with his story and he was totally Valerie’s, that much was obvious.

Fully Automatic is book 4 in Ms Jamison's Bullet series now I know this sounds odd but to read this book you only need to read book 1 Bullet as books 2 and 3 take place after Fully Automatic book 4.

Bullet was a Top Read of 2013 for me and Brand Payne one of the Top Male Characters on my 2013 list so I have been anxiously awaiting his story or likely more accurately stated the journey that bro

If you haven't read Bullet yet, you should probably do that before reading Fully Automatic, but not completely necessary,

I have seen it around traps that Fully Automatic is just Bullet from Brad's POV. And that people aren't reading it for that reason.

This couldn't be further from the truth. While the stories run parallel for a lot of the story, Fully Automatic is much much more.

Fully Automatic is the 4th book in the Bullet series. I really liked Bu

Firstly I need to say that if you haven’t read this series yet you should (because it is awesome) and beware of spoilers. If you have read the first 3 books in the series or at least Bullet, then please continue reading. I do feel the need to mention that this is not a re-write of Bullet. I was blown away by this book! Jade has once again written a gritty, angst filled, heartbreaking, emotion filled, and just all around amazing book. This is Brad’s story in all its glory…. once I started it I kn ...more

I absolutely loved this story. The Bullet series is one of my all time favorites. Jade C. Jamison did an amazing writing Brad's story. I was a wreck after reading Bullet and Rock Bottom but this was the hardest one for me to read. It pulled every single emotion out of me, I laughed, I cried, and at times I wanted to throw my kindle across the room.

Before you read this book, you need to read book one, Bullet, in order to understand the story. If you’ve read Bullet, then you’ve got Val’s side of the story. In Fully Automatic, you get Brad’s side of things. I’d also recommend reading book two Rock Bottom so that you’ll understand what Ethan goes through after Val leaves him and he goes to rehab. I loved reading Brad’s story mainly because in Bullet, I could tell he was hiding th

Ahh Brad, although we knew from Bullet that he had strong feelings for Val, we never really understood how much and that included Val and Ethan.

He was always the go-to guy, the one who took charge, I liked that about him in Bullet; in Fully Automatic however we get Brads PO, we see how hard it was for him, to keep his feelings hidden, to stop feeling hurt by Vat, she never really did know what she had right in front of her with Brad.

He was Loyal, courageous, faithful, honest, sweet and kind to n

So for anyone that has read the epic Bullet series by the awesome Jade C Jamison, this is in my boy Brad’s POV, and it’s the behind the scenes story that we didn’t get from the other books, and it left me loving Brad even more than I already did! I absolutely loved it, and did I mention I’m kind of crushing hardcore on Brad too?

I just finished Fully Automatic and I just loved it. This is Brad's point of view for what happens in Bullet and honestly it just made me love him all the more. I am definitely Team Brad! You should read Bullet to get a feel for this even though you could read this as a stand alone but why in the world would you want to do that? You would miss out on the emotions from both Val and Brad. You have to understand where they are both coming from and reading both gets you there. To say for me this was ...more

This book is starts near the beginning of Fully Automatic and is told from Brad's point of view. If it wasn't for Brad's dedication to their success, I don't think the band would have achieved the success that they did.

I have to admit to not being a huge Brad fan when I read Bullet. I kept hoping that Ethan would overcome all his issues and they would have their HEA. I was actually ticked that Val ran to Brad after Ethan assulted her in his drug induced/drunken rage. And then Brad gave up his re

You may think you know Brad and what he was thinking, while he was yearning for Val, but his book will surprise you……and you will not be disappointed!!

Wow, just Wow! I had read all the books in this series leading to this one, but I was in no way prepared for the heartache I was going to feel for Brad. I will admit, that Ethan had my heart from Bullet on, and I at times hated Valerie. This book though changed that for me. It put it all into perspective. We all knew that Ethan and Val were toxic. I get that and I did when reading Bullet and Rock Bottom. I just wasn’t prepared to be taken on the journey again and feel like I did for them.

Wow!! Jade did an awesome job with Brad's story. I loved him in Bullet and was so glad he got his happy ending. But being allowed to read his POV and see things through his eyes was completely different from Bullet. This was such an emotional read, because my heart broke for Brad in how much he truly loved Valerie. Feeling it and living it through him shows us just how much Valerie broke and twisted his heart. In all honesty, Val doesn't deserve Brad, but because she makes him so utterly happy, ...more

“Fully Automatic” by Jade C. Jamison
5 out of 5 stars

In the foreword of this book, Jamison talks about her fear of writing from the male perspective. She has absolutely nothing to be afraid of. I am often leery when reading the same book rewritten from the male lead’s side…but not here. She has such a grasp on her characters’ thoughts and feelings that it seems as though she is truly in their heads. Whether it is female or male, Jamison has a gift with character development.
