Unfortunately, this story didn't do it for me. The premise sounded great but once I got into it I found it to be too long and I had trouble staying interested. It was quite predictable at times and the ending was a little rushed for my liking.
However the story is put together well moving back and forth from the past to the present, without it becoming confusing.
The characters were both a mix of loveable to downright frustrating. However all of them were well developed and you were able to get a solid understanding of them. Valerie, the main character and the point of view which the story is told from. She is a likeable 'innocent girl' with a good sense of morals albeit a little naive about life and love. Ethan, Valerie's main love interest is a self-destructive young man who take drugs, drinks and likes women a little too much. He's a character you either like or loathe. Then there is Brad, the band's leader, so to speak, and he's a driven young man who wants the band to succeed and puts a lot of time and effort into doing so. Brad is my favourite character in this book and I would have loved for there to be more of him in it. Especially at the end.

I LOVE books about rock stars, but this one had me wanting to freaking throw my iPad up against the wall. First off, if you hate books about cheating then you're probably not going to like this one. The cheating was one of the things that had me conflicted. With that said, to me Bullet portrays what I feel the "real" rock star life is with all the drinking, drugs and cheating. Valerie meets Ethan her freshman year at college. She's the virginal goody two-shoes that just so happens to fall for bad boy Ethan who plays guitar in a band. Unfortunately, Ethan just treats her like a friend and he's the only one who doesn't see that Val is in love with him. One weekend Ethan takes Val home to meet the rest of the band members who are Nick, Zane, and Brad. But when she meets Brad there is an instant attraction between the two of them, an animal magnetism but she fights it.
"I know you're into Ethan, and as long as you are, nothing's gonna happen between us. But I want you to know I'll wait." - Brad
Oh. My. God. Brad just melted my heart. He was sexy, and sweet, and truly cared not just about Val but all the band members. After some time Val ends up joining their metal band as their lead singer... And man does she rock. But for some reason she's hung up on the douchbag Ethan. Another reason I was conflicted was because all of the crap she put up with from Ethan. Granted, Ethan had some issues he was dealing with but still I just wanted to slap the crap out of her. Not only does she have Brad who wants her but she also has this other great, sexy guy who plays guitar with another band named Clay/Jet who wants her too. But no, she keeps running back to Ethan who is on every drug known to man and constantly screwing around on her.
Now, the question is... Does Ethan ever grow up and change his ways and prove his love for Val? Does Brad or Clay/Jet finally steal her heart away and they live HEA? Do any of the bands get a record deal and make the big time becoming major rock stars? Well those are questions you'll just have to find the answers to by reading the book yourself. I personally think that it's worth all the angst, frustration, cheating and drugs to find out. :)

Are you Readdddddddddy...?
It's time to throw up the horns ladies, as `Bullet' is Hard Hitting, Hot Rockin,' Body Slammin,' Head Bangin,' Mind-Blowingly Amazing and will ROCK your pants off!
I'm gushing. I'm hugging my kindle right now, beaming with what I can only describe as total pure book euphoria.
Have you ever read a book and just thought, `Wow, I feel like the author wrote this book just for me?' Well... Bullet, for me, is that book!
There are two mainstay consistencies in my life, one is the love of reading, and two, is my total passion for Rock Music. Bullet incorporated everything I love, it hit every damn nerve - to put it simply, it rocked my world!
And, I will tell you why...
IT'S REAL! IT'S AUTHENTIC! AND TOTALLY BELIEVEABLE!
This isn't just another' Rock Star book; it symbolizes the strife, the struggles, the passion and full on intensity of life on the road. The Hunger and gruelling sacrifices of making something from nothing, when all you have is solid self-belief and friends who share a dream that reflects your own.
But first and foremost, it's the tale of one young girl, Valerie Quinn, whose life took a new direction, the moment she stepped into History class as a freshman at college, when she set eyes on the most beautiful boy on campus, Ethan Richards - how her life went from an innocent, virginal, church going Christian, to a striving rock star as fate dealt it's hand and everything in her life as she knew it, changed irrevocably. How one small-town girl was catapulted into partaking a journey of a lifetime.
And Holy leather hot pants of metal lovin' doom, what an epic tale it was.
I can't go into a synopsis, I just can't do it, this is a journey you need to take on your own, but what I will say is this: `Keep an open mind.' Because this isn't just another `cheating' book, regardless of what others may say, so please don't be put off by it - this book is so much more!
Many of Valerie's decisions were based on a need to find herself, and circumstances warranted those decisions at the time. Without that journey, the ending wouldn't have made sense, so everything happens in this book for a reason. Trust me on this... Valerie's naivety is endearing, and with all that testosterone thrown into the mix, I can't say I blamed her for any of the scenarios that unfolded.
Ethan... be prepared to fall in and out of love with this guy, he got me in a complete and utter tizzy. I hated the way he treated our heroine, but I could also see why she fell for him. He is the embodiment of a `tortured soul' and with her kind and loving heart she simply just tried to fix him. His toxicity a result of a past childhood tragedy, that nurtured an already self-destructive mindset.
"Rational or not, I loved Ethan. I knew it was stupid, but it didn't matter. Stupid or not, I wanted him. Part of me knew he was damaged...deeply damaged...and I think that part of me also wanted to try to save him."
But... It's the best friend, Brad, and the almighty ROCK GOD that made this book pure magic for me in the form of Clayton/Jet, what can I say except I fell for this dude. Bigtime! Holy Hell, did I want to pull him out of my kindle!
"So, seriously... do I call you Clayton or Jet?"
He got a huge grin on his face. "Well, it depends."
"Do you want me sweet or dirty?"
"Oh Valerie," he said, whispering, and I could almost believe it was just him and me again. He ran his fingers back through my hair at the temples. "I could make you feel like you were born to fly. I want to do that. I want to show you what you were made for."
I'm a sucker for a gritty romance, especially when the writer invests the time to nurture and grow her characters, making them credible, with faults and traits that may not be of the angelic kind, but wow, was I bowed over. There are some real precious moments in this book that will simply just steal your breath away.
There are darker elements to this book too. Drugs, Sex, Infidelity, alcohol and physical abuse, and yes, some of it was a bitter pill to swallow. But again, it didn't feel overly embellished, it still held that believability factor, especially the... uh, V-Card popping scene, not the nicest of moments but Jade C Jamieson delivered it with honesty and dignity, with no orgasms in sight and a soreness for days. How many damn times have we read about the `perfect' first time?! Yeah... Not happenin!'
I'm gushing like a groupie, I know this review probably shows it, but screwIt, I may even take a moment to get in the front row and flash my boobs just to get my point across, that I.LOVED.THIS.BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!
Jade C Jamison knows how to deliver a rock star story with heart, and I'm hooked like a junkie. Encore lady... Encore!
5 Metal-riffic STARS.
Fans of Thoughtless/Effortless, The Mighty Storm and How to Kill a Rockstar may want to jump on this bad-boy. Seriously... READ IT!
This is a very raw and emotional story right from the get go and it goes from past to present in the most smoothest of ways!
Valerie Quinn is the leading lady of this story and its from her POV and is done with extreme raw emotions.....She comes from a religious background not belt tight but tight enough to know sex shouldn't be given to just anybody. She goes off to college and has her eyes opened wide when she meets Ethan and she quickly becomes friends with him and they form a tight friendship over the fact they both Love "metal" music and she gets to meet his band mates BRAD (oh lordy Lord!!) ZANE and NICK then over time she eventually falls deeply in Love with Ethan, Now throughout this story Ethan cheats and takes drugs and drinks in excessively and All the while Val is finding out she is and I loved when she met Jet/Clay (those scenes were HOT) :)
There's definitely some heart breaking moments in this book that made me think "Jesus" but I'm so glad I have this book a chance it's written beautifully and All the way through this story you'll be thinking Oh. My. God not again-You go girl-Kick his ass and Then the bigger question Does she stay with Ethan?????
The ending was too short for my liking I wanted it to explore more and last a little big longer maybe we can get a Novella? :D that is the soul purpose I gave it 4out of 5stars.
I loved how this book started, a young (Pure and Innocent,naïve) good Girl Valerie moving from home to start college, she locates her dorm room to find she is sharing with another Girl (who is not so pure and Innocent)which you will find out about as you get into the story, her name Charlotte Edwards, my thoughts about these two sharing was they were going to get along well and be best Bud's... but this was not the case and in turn Charlotte turned out to be the Bitch from Hell. Eventually Valerie got herself settled into Collage life and spotted a rather Hunky looking Rock God (Ethan) in one of her classes, being so pure and innocent she would have never engaged in talking to Boys but she bit the Bullet and plucked up the courage to start a conversation with him and so the story proceeds.
It's quite a good story, loads of ups and downs, Angst and drama however Valerie was suck a weak person and I really wanted to slap some sense into her many times for being so weak, basically she let Ethan walk all over her time and time again. There is a part in this book where Valerie meets up and gets together with another Rock God called Jet/Clayton now that is something extra Hot and Spicy to read about and oh so Yummy, but there is another Hottie in Valerie's life her now Best Friend Brad and eventually things between them do lead to something really rather special.
There is another book after this one which I know I will have to get as this is about Ethan and his journey and hopefully his road to recovery??
A good read, well done!
