Not your typical rocker romance...

Thanks Jade C. Jamison, for my extra gray hairs and my fingernails that have been bitten to nubs. The Vagabonds Series is NOT your typical rocker romance. Nope, it started from the beginning, when Kyle sees her first guitar as a kid and took me all the way to my current nearly bald, nubby fingered state. It is more than a ride on a tour bus, the damn thing ran me over! It's more than sex, drugs, and rock n' roll. It's a story of first love, both physically and m

A rocking read like no other!

I am so sorry to see this trilogy end, I simply loved everything about it. From the darkness of the drug abuse, to the magic of its music and the sex appeal of its characters, this is a story with a bite, kick and a punch.

Told from Kyle Summers perspective as a narrative of her life, Kyle leads us deep into the world of rock and everything in between. Now going it alone, Kyle has to reinvent herself in order to bring her music alive. Not wanting to continue down the

Recieved for an honest review. I loved this series. I'm almost sad to say goodbye to Kyle and her side kicks. But THANKFULLY I got what I wanted. It was a long journey, painful in some ways, and making me giddy in others. Loved how real it was. Like I was standing next to Kyle as it all happened, watching her go from naïve teenager to a determined woman, still stubborn as shit, but that's her charm. The ending left me completely satisfied. Another great series.

5 Electrified Guitars for On the Rocks

Where to need to read the whole trilogy, in order, but I feel like this is the best of the bunch...and that's saying a whole lot, especially if you read my review for On the Road. There is so much emotion, so much life, so much growth. You can't even imagine how happy I am with the ending (though honestly, I want more....greedy and selfish, I can't help it.

I am sad to see this trilogy end with On The Rocks. 

 On The Rocks was I feel the best, and my favourite of the 3 installments.

From stars in their eyes, the sex, drugs and rock and roll culture, to present day, Kyle Summers has told us her story.

We were left on cliffhanger with the second installment, On The Rocks, and I was impatient to learn where Kyle was at in this installment.

From the first book, we have seen Kyle mature in her life, her career, her love life

So this is the last book I the series from Jade. (sad face). So please do not read this book as a stand alone, as you would get terribly lost and completely not understand the series at all. I read this book series back to back as I have read other books by Jade (the bullet series). But not this one. I dunno how Jade does this but she make me love rock stars and these types of books even more. Jades writing styles in

I’ll admit now that I am sorry to be saying goodbye to this series, jumping on the bandwagon so to speak with Kyle and the rest of the band has been a far from ordinary ride.
Of the series I would say that this has been my favourite book, it bore more of a meaning for me and carried more of a message.
We have walked alongside Kyle as she has grown, succeeded, experienced and at times failed in all things rock and roll but above everything else, she has survived it all , she has lived through the h

I think this is my favorite book of the series. In the first book we get a teenage Kyle and all the drama of growing up too fast and wanting to reach for the stars (with a very naïve outlook). In the second book, we get Kyle and her bandmates on their first train wreck of a tour, dealing with pervy men and unscrupulous management who are only looking out for their own wants and needs. By the time we get to On the Rocks, Kyle is having to re-evaluate her whole life and career and basically start ...more

AMAZING PHENOMENAL ADDICTIVE - I feel like a broken record when I read/review Jade's rocker books but I can't help it , she is on point and so very real. As Kyle goes off to form a new band with her as the lead she finds help from some shocking people and I really enjoyed the way her new band was headed. Nothing comes easy for Kyle but damn this chick does not give up and she fights for what she wants and although this book had me on the edge of my seat when it came to her love life I was a fan ...more

No!!! I don’t want this to be over… What an amazing experience it is reading the Vagabonds series. Talk about one hell of a roller coaster ride. One I plan on riding again and again. You know when you read a book and just know it will be one you will re-read at least once, well this series definitely goes on that list. I honestly don’t think I can properly put into words how much I loved all three of these books.

First off, I am going to agree with everyone else when I say this isn't your typical rock star romance. This is the first book I have ever read from this author. I really enjoyed this book. As a reader you get to see the side of a rock star that you don't normally see. By saying that, I mean being a star isn't all about drugs, sex and the lights and glory.

Kyle Summers loved music and her guitar at a young age. She followed her dream of being a part of a ba

Absolutely the best of the Vagabonds series, and I’m sad to see it come to an end, but what an amazing rock and roll ride Jade took us on. True to form, it was all about sex, drugs, and the music that captures your heart and soul.

Kyle has made the hard decision to split from the Vagabonds, and venture into metal music as a solo artist. She’s a super headstrong woman, who no doubt will fight tooth and nail to get what she wants out of life, love, and her career. She’s been creating her image and

A stunning conclusion to this awesome series.

With the break up of The Vagabonds, Kyle Summers is determined to make it on her own and make it big with her own music. It is a difficult journey back to the top as she is pretty much starting from the beginning again. While she is determined not to fall into the same fame traps from when she was in The Vagabonds, there are a whole new set to fall into.

Matters of the heart still trouble her as she still only wants CJ. New relationships and jealousies

And here we are at the end!! Oh and what a way to end a series!! Jade never disappoints!!

Kyle has developed from a stubborn teenager to an even more stubborn adult. However, she has realized that she needs to listen to other people regarding her career. Lots of crazy stuff happens on that way to that realization.

If you are already a fan of Jade and her previous work then this book will be of special intrigue. A band from a previous book makes an appearance along with some interactions between th

This is the final installment of the Vagabonds and what I love about Jades book is that they are predictable you might be able to see a piece coming but you don't know the entire thing.
We have watch Kyle grow up and become a young women and an even better musician even if she has trouble keeping her band together. This book is full of surprises.
Kyle is still learning who she is and what she's about and trying to figure out if "selling out" is the same and growing and trying new things.

This series has got better as it's gone along. I was looking forward to finding out if Kyle made the big time and what happened between her and CJ. I also wanted to find out if Barbie got what she deserved! Not a nice girl.

We pick up where Kyle is trying to form her own band. The trials and tribulations of picking band members and finding a manager and agent, as well as getting a label to sign her on! All while trying to not be in love with CJ.
Not easy.

I have so enjoyed and loved this series!! When I first started I was intrigued by the fact it was a young starting out female band. Not your typical rocker story. I had no idea what I was getting into, what a ride.
Watching Kyle grow from the somewhat innocent girl to the young lady living up the sex, drugs and rock n roll.
The final book in the series was a perfect wrap up! We already watched Kyle struggle through growing up, living and learning, now we see her come into her own. Kyle is just awe

I am so glad we got to see the conclusion of Kyles crazy amazing ride in music.
I've said it before but I love the feel of the way this was written. It just forces you to look at it like a movie. I was sad to see the credits roll.
The writing, the story, the characters. It all works. I think the only thing that got me was the almost whining about CJ. ONLY because she is a tough as nails b¡+€# who has never let anything get to her. I didn't like the feeling of sadness whenever

On the Rocks is the last book in the Vagabonds Series and I have to say I really enjoyed this Rocker Chick series.

Kyle really gets into some deep stuff as a rocker chick. And, you will still see drug, alcohol abuse and a lot of sex. There is an HEA at the end and it ended the way that I would have wanted it to. There were a lot of changes with the band and with the girls from the beginning to the end. And, a LOT of issues dealt with. But, Kyle does grow up. Well, all the girls grow up and some

Omg the Queen of Rock truly outdid herself with this book. Just when I thought I couldn't love the series anymore, she goes and rocks my world with the third installment.
Aside from being totally invested in the characters, the story line is freakin unbelievably awesome!
If your waiting to see the outcome of The Vegabonds series then you better get on it. I just hope that one day we might get another glimpse into this series again. One of my favorite rock books ever! 5/5 stars!

On the Rocks Review

A great conclusion to a rocking series! Jade C. Jamison did a fantastic job. I was absorbed in Kyle Summer's story from book 1, page 1. On the Rocks finishes Kyle's story. It shows how she's grown as an artist, a person, and learned to trust her instincts and follow the music. Kyle Summer's the name and it's her time to shine!!!!!!!!

“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. So even though you can’t really stick her books in one genre, you could say she mostly writes steamy Contemporary Romance—and, while you’re at it, you’ll notice in her stories that Jade freaking loves Colorado, hard music, coffee, bad words, an ...more
