Review: Locked and Loaded

Saturday 10 October 2015
Locked and Loaded Locked and Loaded by Jade C. Jamison
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

You can feel the pain in this story right from the start. Yet another rock star living his dream life but with one thing missing: Jennifer Manders. Jennifer is the girl Zane met and fell in love with in College. Jennifer is the girl Zane’s heart is bound to. Jennifer is the girl he wants to spend the rest of his life with. Jennifer is the girl he can’t resist cheating on. This is an love story tarnished by an unexpected addiction.

A typical rock star, Zane spends his days high and with that comes sex, lots of sex. With their on again, off again relationship lost for almost 2 years, Zane finds himself wanting to reconnect with Jennifer but is it too late? Can they ever truly be happy together, especially when Zane finds out that Jennifer has been keeping a secret from him?

After deciding to contact Jennifer again they meet and immediately realise that they are destined to be together but their constant fighting means that they simply can’t live with one another. Zane is desperate to make a future with Jennifer though and decides that this time he will do everything necessary to beat his addiction. Little does Zane know that his life is about to change forever when he finds out just what secret Jennifer has been keeping from him.

I’m afraid I found it difficult to fully connect with this story and I wasn’t able to embrace the emotion or connect with the characters as much as I would have liked. Yes, they were special and loveable but I needed something more. I felt that the story could have benefitted from more length and more depth. It almost had a novella feel to it as it raced through the storyline without pulling me in. That said, it is yet another amazing story from Jade C Jamison in the series that she is famed for.

As expected, some old favourites make an appearance to delight fans of Fully Automatic.
