Overview

The much-anticipated sequel to Bullet.

Rock star Ethan Richards has fought depression and a host of other demons all his adult life, and it's caused him to lose everything--his wife, his son, his friends, and he almost loses the one thing that means the most to him--his band. He hits rock bottom and believes there is no way out.

Enter Jenna McCormick, a feisty drug and alcohol counselor, a woman with her own share of troubles. She finds Ethan intriguing but keeps him at a distance while trying to help him face life without crutches. She feels a spark but denies it, knowing that a relationship with unstable Ethan could be dangerous for both of them.

Ethan knows what he wants, though, and isn't used to being told no. Jenna isn't willing to risk Ethan losing his tenuous grip on sobriety, however, and is prepared to deny her deeper feelings to help Ethan climb out of his hole, but he learns how to let go of his pain when he finds that someone is prepared to walk with him through the shadows. Can he convince Jenna that they should take a chance on love or will they forever deny their feelings in an effort to keep Ethan on the straight and narrow?

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.

I can't say say enough about Rock Bottom!!! I loved Ethan's story. Was sad Ethan and Val couldn't make their love work but they would always love each other. Every day was a struggle for Ethan until he hit rock bottom then got the help he needed.

Rock Bottom picked up where Bullet ended, but this time it's in Ethan's POV. I will admit that in Bullet, I wanted Ethan to wake up & see how much Val loved him. However, I'm happy with the outcome of that book! This book starts with a prologue from Ethan directed to the readers and that sucked me right in! He was so blunt, I couldn't help but read his story. I never hated him, I hated what he was doing to himself, Val, the band, etc.. but he had a problem. So getting to read more about the story and from his own words was indescribable! Getting help from Jenna, who is amazing, and trying to rebuild his life & relationships... Jade's a genius and an amazing author!

I enjoyed reading the book

It took a second reading of Bullet and Rock Bottom for me to appreciate Ms.Jamison's books. I had commented once how hard it was for me to read Bullet, and I'm glad I gave Ethan another chance in Rock Bottom. Both books were even better the second time!

I could not stand Ethan in Bullet. He was such a jackass. Sadly, I did not fall back in love with Ethan in Rock Bottom. I did get to see in to his head a bit and started to figure out what made him tick and exactly what went wrong with him and Valerie. I don't think he was ever truly in love with Val the person, just the muse. I think he loved her, but was not in love with her. Jenna did seem like a better match for him with reading the signs of his shattered past and how to react to them. I don't think we are done with Ethan's story and I look forward to his continuing journey of making me a fan again. This was a great first step.

Jade C. Jamison has done it again! “Rock Bottom”, the second book in her Bullet series, is as great a read as the first one. This book focuses on Ethan, the guitarist for Fully Automatic, as he struggles with getting clean and getting his life back in order. Along his journey he meets an addiction counselor named Jenna who grounds him and helps him find the faith in himself to conquer his demons. I didn’t like Ethan after I finished Bullet. I had decided that it didn’t matter what devils in his head were contributing to his attitude, I just didn’t see how he could be redeemed. Imagine my surprise when I started “Rock Bottom” and found myself cheering him on. Jamison is masterful at getting to the core of a character, stripping him completely bare, building him back up, and giving the reader reason to believe in him. I finished the book utterly happy for Ethan (an about-face from where I started the book)! The character of Jenna is a welcome addition to the Fully Automatic universe. She holds her own with Ethan, even when she is battling demons of her own. She is a nice contrast to the character of Valerie, without making either character seem less for it. It was also cool to continue to see glimpses of Brad and Valerie. I can’t say enough about Jade C. Jamison. Every book I read just gets better and better and sucks me farther into the rock star world she has created. I can’t wait to dive into the next book in the series and see what happens next! *I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.* Shannon

As Ethan goes through the process of recovery we are offered a glimpse into how and why he's chosen to self medicate. This is the second installment to Jade C Jamison's Bullet. Ethan is to the point where he has nothing more to lose because he's essentially lost everything. He's lost his band, his girl and building a relationship with his son is impossible if he doesn't become clean. Enter Jenna McCormick a drug and alcohol counselor. At first she is extremely reluctant to offer Ethan any help. But through group and one-on-one session she slowly she's the real Ethan emerge. There are some very gut wrenching parts to this story that just broke my heart. But as the two grow close it's only natural that there is a mutual attraction. But can they fight those feelings and focus on what really needs to be done. Excellent read, I highly recommend this one!

this book was very hard for me to read. I really didn't want to hear his side of the story. my anger from my own past didn't want to let me feel bad for him. but this is just another step in letting it all go.

It was okay. Not as good as Bullet. Ethan was kind of dull as well as Jenna.
