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?

I fell in love with Michelle Valentine’s Black Falcon Series, so when I heard she was releasing another book about a new band, I couldn’t wait to read it.
Wicked White was such a different type of story compared to the Black Falcon series. This was more of a love story between to people who were meant to be together, like soul mates, just trying to accomplish their dreams. What I found completely interesting about this book was that it was more about finding oneself and learning to control your life choices. The rock band part of the story was such a small part of this book. This was more about Ace trying to live a normal life and get away from the limelight.
As usual the writing and storyline were great and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. This story was a sweet love story but was still filled with some drama and angst to keep you interested in the characters. My only complaint is that I wish there would’ve been an epilogue. I wanted more from the ending then what we got. I know this says it’s part of a series but I truly don’t know if this is a standalone or if the story will continue in the next book. We do get a Happy Ending, but the way it ended can leave it open for more story to come. I am really interested in seeing how this series plays out 🙂
In this story we meet Ace Johnson (AKA Ace White) and Iris Easton. Ace is the front man of the band Wicked White, but he is extremely un happy with the way his career is going and how everyone is controlling his life. When tragedy sticks his mom, he is fed up and just ups and leaves everything to become the person he wants to be. While hiding out he stumbles upon Iris at the trailer park she just inherited from her grandma. They have a rocky start, when they first meet, but things start looking up when they both realize they can’t stay away from each other. From there we got to see a really sweet love story between these two. And the chemistry was off the charts 😉 Then of course things go wrong and they have to figure out how to get things back on track.
Along the way we are introduced to other characters who I am excited to learn more about. I would love to read a book about Birdie (Iris’s BFF) or even Shane (A friend of Iris’s she meets in NY) I think even a story between those two would be fantastic. I guess I’ll just have to wait and see.
As usual I was not disappointed in this Michelle Valentine book and I would totally recommend this rock star love story to anyone who is a fan of Michelle’s. Also if you are a fan of the rocker Hero, I think you should give this a try, I think you will be pleasantly surprised!!!
