After reading book 1 in the series, I had to jump into the next book. I fell hard for Tommy, Angel, and Jessi and needed more of them asap! I’m already missing them again and it’s gonna be agonizing in the wait for more!

Tommy….You could look at it like he has the best of both worlds and is greedy. Yes he is fortunate enough to have two people who are willing to love him and share him BUT can you imagine how hard it is to keep two people happy at the same time? He loves them both and can’t live w

WHOA! Yup.....I want an Angel, Tommy, and Jessie. lol. I loved the first book, like really loved it, but this one explored more of the relationship and I LOVED IT. Even the trials, I'm sure any 3some relationship would have. The love scenes were plentiful, which for this gal was just perfect. I honest feeling is that it would be like that in a real relationship so the sex scenes were needed. Or maybe I just think that way because if I had them I'd be doing it all the time too LMAO. :)

"I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads."

This is the second in the series, and you really should read book 1 first - partly as it will make more sense of the story, but also because it is an awesome read!

What a fantastic sequel - it starts up just as we left the trio, with them poised to take the world by storm. But things start to go off the rails as Jessi, in an attempt to further her own career too, has to let the guys go away alone. Once again, the author get

Watch as Immortal Angel gets ready to ROCK Europe and Asia!!
Meanwhile Jessi decides to finish her schooling, and start to achieve her dreams (yay, Jessi).
I loved reading about Angel and Tommy, and their developing relationship...unfortunately, I find myself siding with Jessi. I feel slighted for her, I am jealous, and nervous.
I will say, I felt like there was a TON of sex scenes-but the story didn't suffer due to it - it just ignited

Between A Rock and A Hard Place is book 2 in the Radical Rock Stars Series. I highly recommend reading Prince of Punk first, you will enjoy #2 much more.

We pick up right where #1 left you. Immortal Angel has gone platinum which equals a world tour. Tommy Blade, Jessi Blade, and Angel Garcia are in a poly relationship and it works. Jessi decides to follow her dreams and stay behind for school, which means Angel and Tommy

Review by Lisa Kane

I liked the first one in this series enough to keep going. I had problems with Angel and his over the top feelings for Tommy and I felt like the two of them pushed Jessi to the side more than a few times. The same thing happened in this one-only Jessi developed her own story line and delved all her passion into her fashion business.

It was great to see her take back some of her control and not simply be a handle on a frying pan. She has always been so supportive of To

I began reading this book without reading the first book but though I think it would have been nice to read them in the right order I didn't really feel like I was missing much.. And I really enjoyed it from the start because it is a very well written story about these 3 people who love each other a great deal and though it is a different kind of relationship you can't help but love them together and understand and feel their struggles and their love :)

Thanks to Wicked Reads for a free book to read and review. Definitely having some m/m/f fun in this book. I really enjoyed this after starting off with the Punk Prince book, and this book is not a stand alone. The relationship parameters in this book defined the boundaries of the insecurities a ménage might have. I found it to be highly entertaining and loved the erotic scenes it contained. I especially loved Angel in this book and how he closed some of the gaps between himself and Jessi. Tommy ...more

After reading the 1st book in this series, I was looking forward to reading more of Tommy, Jessi & Angel's story. Jessi starts to feel jealous of Angel after not being able to go on the Asia part of the tour. You get to see how it all plays out & how they end up stronger on the other side. This book also deals with Jessi's parents & their disapproval of her lifestyle. As a mother of a gay son, I thought how Jenna shows how the parents deal with their feelings & make amends.

I just finished the book and did not want it to end. The love between Jessi, Angel and Tommy brought me to tears more then once. The story kept me on the edge of my seat and I wanted these three people to find the happiness they deserve. The sex scenes were intense and hot. **oh yes!** Miss Galicki has helped me escape this drab life and dream of a world with out limits and one where dreams can come true. Thank you fro sharing your talent.

It took me a little more time to get into this one, I found some part where i just wanted to scream at them and say what are you thinking, There were a few ups and down but nothing that really stood out and made me feel like wow that blew me away, I would say to read this if you have read book 1 just so you can see where they leave things, I do hope there might be a small novella as i really want to see if they got there wish. I'm looking forward to reading Damien and Alyssa's story.

Jenna Galicki made me cry!!

Ok, now that I've put down the Kleenex, I can write this review. I said it when I read the first book, and I'll say it again... Jessi+Tommy+Angel= PERFECTION!!! I ADORE this trio. I love the dynamic amongst them, even in the turmoil. There were so many times where the emotion of the story had me sitting here with tears in my eyes, whether they were happy or sad. It was just that GREAT of a read!
Another 5-STAR read!!!

Great job by the author. This is very tough subject to talk about and what a great job she did writing about it. I laughed and cried sometimes at the same time. I feel for Jessi the most. She had a husband and a life and then the love of her life wanted to bring another person into there marriage. I have to say I would have felt like I wasn’t enough for him and would have left him and Angel to have a life together. But she is stronger than that she figured it out. Lots of struggles came w

Fantastic Follow-up to The Prince of Punk Rock. This book picks up right were The Prince of Punk Rock ends. Immortal Angel has been booked for a world tour that will now commence sooner than was originally believed because the record company has added an Asian portion to the tour. This book was excellent. Jenna Galicki did it again!! There were no slow moments in this book. This book kicks it into high gear from page 1. While Tommy and Angel head to Asia for the first half of the Immortal Angel ...more

I love this series!!!! The continuation of Jessi, Tommy & Angel's story was heartbreaking and wonderful and just took my emotions on a crazy whirlwind trip. I can't wait to continue reading this series to get the backstory on Tommy and Damien and find out more about what happens with the characters.

I just finished BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE – book #2 of Jenna Galicki’s Radical Rock Stars series – and am as blown away as I was after reading book one. The relationship of Jessi, Tommy and Angel is unconventional, refreshing, one-of-a-kind, maybe a bit scandalous – and it is of an incredible rare deep and genuine love that literally seeps off the pages!

What an amazing sequel to the series! It starts directly where book one left off – therefore book one should be read first.

As we get the next glimpses into the stardom of Immortal Angel and the lives of Tommy, Jessi and Angel. Things are not always as they seem. Feelings and desires are hard to hide. And in the end is love enough? There were parts in this story that had tears in my eyes and my heart hurting for Jessi and Tommy.

Immortal Angel is on a world tour. Emotions are flying high for the band members. This is their moment of fame. They have made it. Jessi has always been in their corner from day one bu

I was really surprised that there was a second book to this series because the first book did not have a

cliffhanger ending. Don’t get me wrong I was excited to find out that I could read more about Tommy,

What talent it takes to balance the emotions, especially one as complicated as love, between three very passionate individuals! You literally felt just as conflicted and confused as Jessi, Tommy and Angel all went through doubts about where their relationship was heading and where each stood in their arrangement.

I do, however, must bring up one point that had me very conflicted. Those who know me know that in real life I am a sex consultant/educator as well as an adult novelty di
