On the Road
Vagabonds #2
Jade C. Jamison

All that glitters isnt gold. Sometimes its plastic.

Kyle Summers hits the road with her band the
Vagabonds, living the dream. Five young women are tossed into the limelight
with little supervision, seemingly left to the wolves. Kyle is driven and
headstrong, and
while she enjoys the temptations of sex and drugs on the
music always comes first. In spite of her friends crumbling under the
pressure and lack of support, the Vagabonds become a household name and enjoy
success not experienced by people far beyond their years.

But Kyle realizes two thingsone is that her
relationships are hollow without love, but she and CJ, her main love interest,
are only on-again, off-again at best, leaving her feeling unfulfilled. The
second is that Kyle quickly grows weary of dealing with egos and prima donnas,
and she feels helpless while watching her band fall apart.

Can she save her bandand her relationship with CJor
will she end up alone and forgotten?

Vagabonds follows one young womans 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?

You will need to have read book one, On The Run, as On The Road continues where book one left off.

I was all excited for Kyle and the girls from Vagabond to hit the road and make their make on the world, and Ms Jamison has not disappointed with this second installment.
The first installment was quite tame compared to this second installment.  This definitely lives up to the old adage sex and drugs and rock and roll.  On The Road pulls no punches when it gets down to it.  The girls are all experiencing freedom like they have never known, and they do like to indulge.  There were a couple of times where I was "woah".

We got more of CJ from the first book, and hopes were high for Kyle and CJ's budding relationship - but this is only the middle of the story, so I guess I am going to have to wait!

This book hits on some of the darker, seedier aspects of the world our girls are in.  Underage sex, drug use and abuse, the whole kit and kaboodle.  It is not for the faint-hearted.

This book is over a few years, and we see the highest of highs and the lowest of lows for our Vagabonds.    There was sooooo many times that the singer Barbie needed a size 9 boot up her arse.  I wanted to slap the narcissism right out of her. I wanted to hug the heck out of Vicki and Liz, I cheered for Kelly, and I just wanted Kyle to have it all.

So, can they make it?  Can Kyle have it all?  Or will they all hit rock bottom well before their time?

Nope, for that you are going to have to wait (not very long!) for the 3rd installment

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.
