Review: Wicked White by Michelle A. Valentine


Wicked White

Wicked White, #1

by Michelle A. Valentine

Releases June 23, 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?

If you’ve read any or all of Michelle A. Valentine’s books, it will come as no surprise to you that this was another fantastic book of hers. It was engaging, full of emotion, and sexy. It drew me in chewed me up, and spit me out raw from the emotion evoked but also happy.

Ace and Iris meet when he’s on the run from his life and takes up residence in a trailer that Iris is renting in her small home town of Sarahsville, Ohio. They have a lot in common. They both love music, they’ve lost their deadbeat mothers and were raised by someone else that really loved them, and they’ve got plenty of passion. They’re both emotional people but it manifests in slightly different ways. Ace loves to quote Shakespeare and has a bit of trouble controlling his temper when he’s being protective. It doesn’t hurt that he’s sexy as hell and rides a motorcycle.  Iris is a spitfire and has no problem standing up for herself but she’s also sweet and caring. The chemistry between these two was instantly obvious and everything they went through together and separately just make them stronger as a couple.

This story really drew me in. It wasn’t the typical “rocker romance” which was refreshing. There were a few times I wanted to strangle Ace because he was being a typical guy but that just leant to the authentic feel of the book. It was very easy to immerse myself in the story and devoured it in less than a day. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series. 5 out of 5 palm trees!
