REVIEW - Wicked White (Wicked White #1) by Michelle A. Valentine
Release Date: 23 June 2015
After his mother dies, rock star Ace White—lead singer of the red-hot band Wicked White—is done with the celebrity game. The phony people, the meaningless one-night stands: he doesn’t want any of it anymore. Quitting in the middle of a sold-out tour, Ace sets out to find some place—any place—where he can be alone.
Aspiring singer Iris Easton’s life has never been easy. First, her mother walked out on her when she was a kid. Now she’s buried in debt, weeks after losing her beloved grandmother. When a mysterious and sexy new guy moves in next door, Iris can’t help but be drawn to his soulful gaze. She can tell there’s something from his past haunting him—something he’s not telling her.
Just as Ace starts falling for Iris, the media go on a worldwide hunt to find the missing rocker. Will true love conquer all, or will the truth be the very thing that tears the couple apart?
My Opinion 4 STARS
This is not your usual rocker romance book.
For starters Ace Johnson, aka Ace White hates the type of music he sings with his band he also dislikes his bandmates and his band manager.
After finding out that his foster mother has been found unconscious, he leaves the band whilst on tour and head to her bed side where not long after she dies. He runs from the band in order to decide what he wants.
Iris Easton is sorting out her grandmothers trailer after her death and is now in charge of a failing trailer park. Back from New York where she is trying to chase her own singing dream Iris gets a new inhabitant of the trailer park.
Both are immediately attracted to the other, however believing to be the best thing, Ace try to deny the chemistry and give her the cold shoulder, but tends to get rather protective instincts around her.
This is a fast romance book with a good story line and our main characters are actually really sweet but rush a little headlong into things.
A little talking more between each other would have had things going better between our characters, but that would have made for a very short book with no angst.
I am a little sad at the ending however and wish that there was a chapter of a few months down the line with them and their happy ever after.
