Wicked White (Wicked White #1)
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?
Wicked White was a solid beginning to a new series. The premise is unique, not following the typical rock star romances. This was refreshing. And while I didn't fall in love with the characters, I was drawn into the story. Ace and Iris just never felt right to me, the connection didn't have that all encompassing pang. They had the physical chemistry but, even still, their revelations of love fell flat and the angst drove me to insanity. Some readers might like this and some may not.
This is the beginning of a new series and I plan on reading the next book. You should give it a shot too. Readers who enjoy rock star romances will want to grab this book. It's available NOW!
