Vagabonds on the Run by Jade C. Jamison Review Post
On the Run
By Jade C. Jamison
What if your dream became a nightmare?
Kyle Summers enjoys a carefree childhood traveling the countryside with her parents…until she discovers the electric guitar. When she first wraps her hand around its neck, she knows she was born to play it.
When she discovers boys, she realizes she has a second passion.
But music always comes first, and when Kyle is recruited to be part of a young all-girl band, she jumps at her chance for fame and fortune. It isn’t long before Kyle discovers that all that glitters isn’t gold. Will she survive when she discovers the dark and seedy side of the music industry—or will it ruin her for good?
Vagabonds follows one young woman’s rise to fame past the pitfalls of sex, drugs, and easy money, through fortune and success to heartbreak and betrayal. Five girls build their band The Vagabonds from nothing but a hunger to create and quickly find that they are nothing but pawns in a larger game played by managers, agents, the press, the music industry, and all manner of unscrupulous, greedy people who want to feed on their triumphs. Friendships and lives hang in the balance. Who will survive?
What others are saying:
Wow...and YES!!! If the Nicki Sosebee series and the Bullet boys had a baby, I think this would be the result. I have always been a huge fan of Jamison's work, whether she wrote about a naughty, sexy reporter and her bedroom antics or about a hot young rock band with a lot of angst and serious problems.
On the Run is the start of another really cool series, but this time about a young girl who always had a bigger love and passion for her music than anything else...and would do almost anything to make it her life's work. ….
I really loved this first book (even though I found it a bit tamer than Jamison's usual fare) and I know she will definitely amp things up a notch as Kyle gets older and dives into what either could be the thing that lets her achieve her wildest dreams or breaks her spirit in the end.
Awesome family drama with a lot of rocking heart and soul. ~ Susan B.
Cant wait for more!!!
AHHHH This book is amazing. Ok yeah I know you won’t just one-click it based off that statement but trust me it’s a great read. One of the things I love about this books is the angst and the Young Adult feel of it…trust me it’s not a YA novel but the books starts with the girls in high school… ~Twinsie Talk Book Reviews
I have been on the edge of my seat waiting for On the Run (Vagabonds, #1) since Jade C. Jamison announced she was starting to write it. No one writes rock-n-roll and romance like Jade. ~ Amy
A Hot New Band Vagabonds.
What can I say Jade knows how do write about Rockstars. …
This book is going to be one hell of a ride from teenage dreams to reality but it's a ride your going to want to take to see where Vagabonds ends up. ….
This is book one of three but when I was done reading this all I said is bring on book two
Ms Jamison has a knack for writing rock stars and strong women. Put the two together and it is always going to be a cracker of a book. She does not gloss over the bad parts of the life. We get their story, warts and all. She draws you right into their world and it is like you are living the journey with the characters.
I thoroughly enjoyed getting into teen-Kyle's head, and can't wait for more of the Vagabonds story. ~BJ’s Book Blog.
About the author:
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.
