BLOG TOUR PROMO GIVEAWAY & REVIEW - Rock Bottom by Jade C. Jamison







SYNOPSIS:
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?

AUTHOR BIO:

BEST SELLING AMAZON AUTHOR ~ 
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.

MY REVIEW:
Rock Bottom (Bullet, #2)Rock Bottom by Jade C. Jamison
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. Spoiler-free.  This book does not end with a cliffhanger. I recommend reading Bullet by Jade C. Jamison (book 1) before reading Rock Bottom…but this book can also be enjoyed as a stand-alone. 4.5 – 5.0 stars!

Ethan Richards is in one of the biggest rock bands of all time.  But the only thing “rock” about his life is the hard rock bottom he has hit.  Before he entered rehab (again) the only tracks he was laying were the tracks on his arms. Ethan has been on a downward spiral into a drug induced abyss. Everyone in his life became collateral damage in the wake of his drug fueled existence.  He almost killed his wife, who in turn took their toddler son and left him.  His band is exhausted of his erratic and dangerous behavior. Everyone gave up on the charismatic, smoldering hot, self-absorbed douche bag star rock…except for one. Jenna McCormick - his substance abuse counselor. Usually a therapist isn't supposed to cross the line and get involved with a patient.  Ethan meets Jenna his new substance abuse counselor and sparks fly. Jenna is full of her own dysfunctional demons.  She is doing her best to help herself and her groups’ members.  Then Ethan walks into her life. Can Jenna pull Ethan out of his depressed filled life before he hits six feet under? Will Jenna be able to help herself and help Ethan?

I loved the way Rock Bottom picked up where Bullet left off without missing a beat. This story unfolded from both Ethan’s and Jenna’s pov. I enjoyed their internal dialogue which captured all of their feelings, observations and emotions. In Rock Bottom, Ethan’s behavior is not justified but explained.  He wants to get better and feel well.  I believe Jade Jamison did her homework on depression and the hard realities of addition.  She exposed the very essence of the pain, heart break and aftermath that drug addiction and depression causes. Rock Bottom might be one of my favorite books by Jamison. I have to mention the great steam factor – dam this woman can write a hot scene! I think RB can be read as a stand-alone but to really understand Ethan’s past and understand the bigger picture I would recommend reading Bullet (Book 1). Rock on and enjoy. 4.5 – 5.0 Heavy Metal Stars.
