Title: Fully Automatic (Bullet #4)
Author: Jade C. Jamison
Published Date: January 30, 2014
***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
You might think you know Brad’s story, but think again. There’s so much more to his story than what Valerie told. 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 have felt that way too, but he didn’t just sit around waiting for her. See the secret side of Brad that you had no idea existed. What kept the driving force behind Fully Automatic focused even while his heart was breaking?
***Contains Graphic Sex, Strong Language and Adult Situations. Not for young readers***
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 things from Val and didn’t know what those things were, but in this book it’s all laid out for me. Jade C. Jamison does a great job of showing us that Brad isn’t just a lovesick man pining after his best friend’s girl. She shows us that despite the heartache and pain that he’s capable of being everyone’s rock, even when it feels like nobody is there for him. Sometimes though I just wanted to yell at him for not standing up to Ethan about how he treats Val as well as standing up to Val and letting her know that he genuinely loves her. There were several times where my heart just hurt from all the pain he goes through, not just with Val but with Ethan and the other women he meets. Even though there are parts that are retold (mainly speaking parts from Bullet between Brad, Val and Ethan), this is not the same book as Bullet; we get all of Brad just like we got all of Val. The characters are relatable and the life of a struggling band on the road is believable, as is Ethan’s drug use. It feels like you’re really in the story and not just an outsider even though this book isn’t written in first person. I highly recommend you give not just this book a try, but the whole series.
Jade C. Jamison was born and raised in Colorado and has decided she likes it enough to stay forever. Jade’s day job is teaching Creative Writing, but teaching doesn’t stop her from doing a little writing herself.
Unfortunately, there’s no one genre that quite fits her writing. Her work has been labeled romance, erotica, suspense, and women’s fiction, and the latter is probably the safest and closest description. But you’ll see that her writing doesn’t quite fit any of those genres.
You’ll have to discover Jade’s writing for yourself to decide if you like it.
