*Synopsis*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?

After reading the Black Falcon series I was not expecting this book to be so sweet. I found the story of Ace and Iris just so ridiculously beautiful and I never wanted it to end.
Ace is on tour with his bitch of a manager and the band he doesn't even know when he get's the call saying that the woman who raised him is in the hospital and won't make it very long. Giving the band a big, fuck you, he leaves to go say his last goodbyes and doesn't plan on coming back. After leaving the hospital he hops on his brand new motorcycle and takes off, hiding from his record label and the media.
Iris just came back to Sarahsville from New York to take over her late grandmother's trailer lot, Willow Acres. She's looking for a new tenant, and Ace is the mysterious guy who rides up on his bike answering her ad. Right away Iris is drawn to her new tenant and want's to know more about him. Ace tries to keep his distance though, and just wants his peace. But once he hears Iris singing, he can no longer stay away and wants to help her reach her dream of being on Broadway.
It's almost as if we were fated to be.
Wicked White was not your typical rockstar romance about the bad boy rocker whose a playboy and has to be tamed. This was so much better! This story was pure romance that will make you swoon and wish Ace Johnson a.k.a Ace White was a real person so that you can go kidnap him. Ace was so sweet and so romantic it made my heart skip a beat, I mean, the dude quoted Shakespeare!
Overall, this I thoroughly enjoyed his story and thought it was wonderful. I definitely look forward to reading more from this author.
