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?
This book surprised me. I was expected Ace to be a typical bad-boy rocker who only thinks of himself. He was living the dream, but walked away from it all because he had enough. While away from it all, he was completely different than I expected. He was kind and caring, showing his sweet side to Iris. It was obvious this was the real him, the man he was when he wasn't being pushed around by those in the industry. Not saying he was always nice to Iris, he had to come around, but at least he pulled his head out of his butt.
There were many times I just wanted to smack the main characters. Their age/maturity level showed through their actions I could tell they needed time to mature and figure out what they wanted. The drama between these two kept me from being able to put the book down for long.
This story is told in alternating POV. There is no cliff hanger ending, but I am left wanting to know more. I feel like I'm just not sure their relationship is solid yet. Hopefully that will come in upcoming books in the series.
