I had my moments with this book. There were things I liked and things I struggled with. I really liked that this was an original take on the whole rock star life. Rather than embrace the fame and all that, Ace White (lead singer of Wicked White) is not loving his fame and fortune. He’s a puppet to his record label and manager which forces him to shove it all when his mother dies.
He escapes to nowheresville, USA where he meets Iris Easton. She was refreshing. She could have easily been a cliché but Ms. Valentine gives us a strong, smart and sassy heroine.
I struggled with how sweet Ace was. Yes, I’m used to the jaded, man-whoring rock star, which Ace was not. He was a good man and the things he did and said to Iris were really sweet and romantic, sometimes just too good to be true. Also, the insta-fated love of Iris and Ace was sometimes hard to buy.
Overall, this was a fast read. If you like sweet romances, low on the angst, you’ll enjoy this.
