3.5 stars Alan drummer and Jeremy bassist at heavy metal band Bulletproof
Friends from where they were thirteen. And Jeremy in love with Alan from where he was eighteen. Only never told him. He didn't want to loose his best friend.

After Alan and Jeremy had a hot and steamy get together with more than five guys in the bedroom, lights out and hot lips and hands and mouths everywhere Alan get the BJ of his life and when he hears the voice of the hot mouth, it scares the shit out of him.

I did not expect this book to be this good so if you are interested in the dirty trials of rockstars finding love and the groupies that litter their path than this book is going light your senses.

Friends-to-lovers is my absolute jam, so I was quick to jump on this book when I saw it. While this is the third book in a series, it can be read as a standalone. This is my first book in the series as well as my first book by the author, and it can definitely be read by itself.

Jeremy and Alan have been best friends since they were teenagers. They share everything from their band to the guys they hook up with. Jeremy's been nursing a secret love for his friend since they were 18, and it finally

Everything I would want out of a M/M novel and more!!! The only reason I can't the story a full 5 stars is because parts of the story did get overly descriptive and repetitive. Other than that it was a really fresh take on a rock star romance. I like that the story was mainly about Alan and Jeremy but the other characters (Brandon, Derek, Cam, & Felix) of the series played a healthy part without overshadowing their journey. I also REALLY enjoyed that this entire series is about a gay rock band. ...more

They have all been friends since junior high, but Alan and Jeremy are best friends and they share a special bond. When the lines of friendship are blurred one night, will they act on their feelings or will unrequited love destroy their friendship and possibly their band?

This is a story about choices and chances. Jeremy and Alan have to make a choice as to whether they

Best friends to lovers. Always a tricky subject to get right. As there's a fine balance between friendship and relationship. You can't have the second without the first, and you should never put the first in jeopardy for the second.
This is what Jeremy and Alan realize and go through in Bassist with Benefits. Neither wants to put their platonic relationship on the line, they went through too much together for that, but neither can deny the strong attraction they have to the either.

Bassist with Benefits is now my favorite Jenna Galicki book. I absolutely loved it. I couldn't get enough. Friends to lovers, Jeremy and Alan are wonderful characters. They've been friends since childhood and have always been there for each. From their love of music forming the band to coming out as teenagers they have supported each other.

Not only do they share their love of music but they are know for sharing men as well. Their behind close doors action is well know and groupies are plenty. A

Bassist With Benefits by Jenna Galicki is the third book in the Bulletproof Series.
Bassist With Benefits is Alan and Jeremy´s story and can easily be read as standalone, but I recommend to read the books in order.
Jeremy had an secret crush on drummer Alan for forever. They share groupies and a bed but never their own bodies. Jeremy wants Alan -bad, but Alan has no clue. But then the other shoe drops and Alan doesn´t know what to think and what to do. He´s terrified their friendship is destroyed.

Friends to lovers and a rockstar romance all wrapped up in one? Yep, I’m right there! The fact that this is set in the Bulletproof world, a series of which I’m already a fan…that just made me snap this one up that much quicker. Jenna Galicki sure didn’t disappoint either—there’s heat, angst, tension, excitement and plenty of drama to be found…along with some real feelings and emotion that the characters are not sure what to do with.

I adored Jeremy. There nothing quite like a character who has be

I have been a fan of Jenna Galicki’s for a long time. I think I have almost read everything she has written.
So I have been looking forward to this book since reading Cam and Brandon. :)

I have to say this story was so touching and scorching, fans self it will knock you off your socks.

If you have read the other books in this series, heck even if you haven’t Alan and Jeremy tell their story of falling how in love with your best-friend isn't always easy but it might

I love the Bulletproof series and not only do we get to see how the band and their restaurants have grown, we get to see more Cam and Brandon (let’s not forget Brandy) and then we see the story behind Alan and Jeremy. BF since children and bandmates plus sharing men can equal a disaster waiting to happen you can say. Alan and Jeremy have never been together in an intimate way and this all blows up when in a dark room one day. How do you recover from this especially when one of them have hidden t ...more

I'm voluntarily reviewing a free advance reader copy I received from the author.

Jeremy has been in love with his best friend and band mate since he was a teenager. They have always been involved in group activities in the bedroom, but never together. That was a line they never drew, until it happened one night accidentally. All of their dynamics changed with that one incident, and neither knew how to move forward from it. There was a lot of the stereotypical rocker behavior (drugs, alcohol, and

What would you risk for a chance with the person you love and have loved for years? Would you risk your happiness, a friendship, your heart? I can’t give you that answer because for every person, every relationship that answer will be different. In Bassist With Benefits this is what Jeremy and Alan must not only face but overcome if they want to have a relationship, one that is more than just a friendship.

'Bassist With Benefits' is the third book in Jenna Galicki's Bulletproof Series. Reading all three books in a week I think Jenna Galicki is now one of my favourite authors of 2017. I love her writing style, this book as with the others in the series, was easy to read, the characters adorable and chemistry was beyond HOT. There is definately alot of sex, drugs and rock & roll.

I haven't read the first two books in this series so I cannot speak to their quality or content. I can, however, say that after reading Bassist with Benefits, I went to Amazon and bought both books.
The premise is not a new one, best friend to love/lover, but the underlying storyline is new to me.
I enjoyed the brutal honesty of the dynamics of the life of a heavy metal band. They work hard and play harder. Random, frequent hookups, drugs everywhere you look and the excitement that surrounds the

I spent last weekend on tour with Bulletproof and I'm heartbroken that I have to wait a year to get more. I love this band!

So far this series so far has revolved around Brandon and Cam. However the latest release, Bassist with Benefits dives into the complicated relationship between best friends, Alan and Jeremy. And it's freaking hot.

Sweet Jesus. I just need a moment to fan myself thinking about these two.

Ok.  Here's the deal.  Childhood friends and now bandmates, these two have been sharing me

I haven't read much m/m and I'm new to this author as well but I really enjoyed the story. I do have a soft spot for rock stars and this story was full of them. Jeremy and Alan have been best friends they grew up together and enjoy sharing everything from fame to men. We all know rock stars love hot sex and sometimes with more then one person. During a night full of sex and rock and roll the line is crossed and feelings are pushed to the surface. Of course after that everything changes which is ...more

Alan and Jeremy have always been there for each other from their early teens when they came out, to becoming the pulse of the group Bulletproof. While bringing groupies to the bus or back to their hotel rooms for group sex was the norm, interaction with each other was a line that they never crossed, until it happened, in the dark.

They are known for their wild romps with their groupies. They kid around a lot and make sexual innuendos to each other but they have never crossed that line in the bedroom.

Friends to lovers. Hot and heavy.

The band mates who play together, well, play together. Notorious for sharing men in the bedroom, Jeremy and Alan have never crossed the line with each other. Until one night changes everything. One of them has been in love with the other for a long time, the other has some catching up to do. Confused and scared by these new found feelings, there is lots of pushing and pulling between the two of them.

There was an incredible rush and energy in Jeremy and Alan's sto

Thank you Jenna! You have done it again! I love this friends to lovers story. Jeremy & Alan are great. They're best friend but there is much more going on between these two, then they are willing to admit...well Jeremy has admitted it but when will Alan? Hot & Sexy is all I can say. The banter between this band is amazing. They are fun and extremely hot guys and this was such a great read! I can't wait for Derek's story. ...more

What a lovable couple. Both Jeremy and Alan are so thickheaded and stubborn with so many things that when they finally saw the light I cheered. The camaraderie between all the band mates was perfect, especially with all the witty banter you still felt the love they all have for each other. I never read the first two books of this series, but I will correcting that shortly. After reading this book I am now interested in Cam and Brandon, and the wait for Derek's story has me wriggling in my seat. ...more

Brandon, Cam and the boys of Bulletproof are back in this full length novel. They are now on tour and every night is a party. Jeremy and Alan are up to their old tricks on the road of having three and more somes. They touch the other men, but not each other. It's their one unspoken rule. Hands on the extras, and not on each other. They have been best friends since they were kids, and nothing will change that. Or is there something unspoken going on?

I skipped book two because this plot was too good to wait but what I found didn't live up to my expectation. The life the band portrays is so unreal, like seriously, who gives BJ's at a party in front of people like is nothing. The mention of drugs and sex, plus the fact that Alan got so tight with a small accident and then jumps in the boat with Jeremy, I don't know the whole plot was all over the place and I didn't felt any real connection between the characters. ...more
