♫ Release Blitz and Review ♫ On The Rocks (Vagabonds #3) ♫ Jade C Jamison ♫

 The explosive conclusion to the Vagabonds trilogy!

After playing second fiddle in the all-girl rock band the Vagabonds, lead guitarist Kyle Summers decides to break out on her own and puts together a band that helps her shine as a solo act.

But the road is uphill and success seems elusive. She begins to question herself and her talent, wondering if she should sell out to win the adoration of her old fans or stubbornly follow her heart and continue to languish in relative obscurity.

On-again, off-again love interest CJ Slavin helps Kyle get her new band off the ground but refuses to commit to their relationship, once more leaving Kyle feeling alone, unloved, and unimportant, and those emotions lead her to do rash, irrevocable things on the road, things that could drive CJ away for good. Will they finally admit their feelings to one another and forsake all others or split for good, and will Kyle finally find the fame shes been working her ass off for or will she leave it all behind, a broken woman?

Find out in the final tale of the Vagabonds trilogy!

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.

Now she is branching out on her own career wise, and we see her really come to the fore.  Though her love life, and particularly her relationship with CJ is a hot mess.  It had my stomach in knots as I was taken on a emotional rollercoaster.  I just want them to be happy dammit!!

And CJ - might have swooned just a little in couple of places this book!

There were plenty of twists and turns in this book, but I knew that Ms Jamison would not let me down in the end.

Oooh and there were some great cameos with the boys from Last Five Seconds (Jet/Clay's band from the bullet series)

If you like your rock star books a little different, a little grittier than the norm, then the Vagabonds could be just the thing that you need.

For years, Jade  C. Jamison tried really hard to write what she thought was more
"literary" fiction, but she found herself compelled to write what you read by her today--sometimes gritty, raw, realistic stories and other times humorous, light tales--but most of the stories she writes revolve around relationships and characters finding their way through life.

While she doesn't confine herself to just one genre, nor is there a nice neat label for what she writes, most of her work could be called erotic romance. Her main writing
passions include rock star romance, romantic comedy, and romantic suspense.

She lives in Colorado with her husband and four children.

✪ Blog Tour ✪ Slider (Core Four #2) ✪ Stacey Borel ✪

Title: Slider
Series: The Core Four Series #2
Author: Stacy Borel
Genre: NA Romance
Published: September 21, 2015 
Dr. Turner Brooks may be the professional brother, but he's also the adrenaline junkie. When he meets Annabelle, a girl scared to death of veering from the path shes paved for herself, all he wants to do is push her out of that comfort zone. 

Annabelle has already lost too much. She wants to stay focused on her new nursing job and away from unnecessary risks. Turner Brooks is exactly that an unnecessary risk. Shes heard the rumors about him flying around the hospital, describing him as a womanizer or sex god. Yeah, she doesnt need that. 

Still, Turner tries to teach her that life is full of risks worth taking. As they grow closer and she begins to let go, the unexpected happens. 

Will they be able to recover from that surprising fastball or could this be the final strike out? 

**This book can be read as a stand alone**

ARC received for an honest review

Firstly - can I say #ArmPorn on the cover??
This is the second in the  Core Four series, and can be read as a stand alone.  In fact, it felt like a stand alone as it had been so long since I read the first one (Bender) and I had mostly forgotten it's story.

I loved the first book, so I was really looking forward to Slider.  And while I liked it, I just didn't love it.

Dr Turner Brooks was enamoured with Annabelle from their first meeting.  Annabelle had the insta-lust thing going on with him.

I did like that she didn't immediately fall at Turner's feet or into his bed,  but made him work for it.

I loved the dates that Turner put together for them - showed how much he really was interested in Annabelle.

But Annabelle - she just faded into the background for me.  I had to reread the blurb to even remember her name!  I am not sure what it was about her, but I just didn't find her memorable at all. 

Slider was a sweet, fastpaced (maybe a little too fast paced at times?) story that was a good way to fill in an afternoon - but it just didn't stick with me.  

Although I will be reading the next two, as I think Wrigley's story is going to be fun.

Stacy Borel is currently a resident of Illinois. She has two children and is a world traveler. Stacy's passions are reading, road trips, experiencing new things, and living life to the fullest. She was a full time nursing student when she rediscovered her love of reading, and in 2012 she decided to try her hand at her own novel. Each of her books contains little pieces of herself, and they are her pride and joy.

I met him in a snow storm...

We spent forty-eight hours trapped in the back of his pickup truck.

We fought.

We touched.

We fell.


She literally crashed into my life...

The last thing I wanted was a relationship. Especially with a quirky chick that drove me insane. But something about her got under my skin, and into my heart.

And I had to have her.

All of her. Now.

Falling in love in the back of a truck, just the two of us, was easy.

Finding out he’s a famous rock star, dealing with jealous fans, psycho exes, and demons from the past....not so easy.

I have a passion for the bad boys, those covered in tattoos, sexy smirks, ripped jeans, fast cars, motorcycles and of course, the sweet girls that try to tame them and win their hearts. My debut series, Ashes & Embers, follows the lives of rock band members as they find, and sometimes lose, the loves of their lives.

Born and raised a Jersey girl, I now reside in the mountains of beautiful New Hampshire with my husband and our multitude of furry pets and spend most of my time writing, reading, and vacuuming.
