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?
Review by: Gina
When I first heard about this book I was really excited but when I got to the end, I felt satisfied. It wasn't a "holy smokes, knock my socks off" kind of book, but it kept me entertained from the beginning until the end. I found the story line to be interesting, a rock star needing/wanting to escape and meeting this girl in a small town. It turns out, both are two people who don't have much to hold on to, but end up holding on to each other.
This is an insta-love story and I am always up in the air with those. Sometimes they can work, other times they don't. I am on the fence about this one...there were scenes that felt like it was way too fast and other scenes where it worked.
I was expecting the book to be a little more edgy, but instead I got more of a softer story with some drama, some angst, and some heat. Overall, the story was well written and a good book to read on a lazy afternoon.
