The handsome lead Singer Ace White has had enough of the bad vibes coming from the other band members of Wicked White the manufactured Band he fronts and, together with the dictates and demands that his Manager and Record Label put on him, he's on the edge. When he's forced to choose them or his dying Mother there's no contest.... he flips the Band a finger and disappears. Needing to escape everything Ace rents a run down trailer that's owned by Iris who is getting over her own loss. They are mutually attracted but he's broken and he can't afford to be recognised or start a relationship that'll bring the paparazzi crashing in on him or Iris. So he tries to stay away but he didn't bargain on Iris' determination to get to know her broody, moody and mysterious sexy neighbor and eventually his head is overruled by what his heart wants.
Iris and Ace's relationship was sweet, tender, romantic and they share secrets, hopes and dreams because Iris dreams of Broadway so Ace helps her with her technique and there's some touching sex scenes. But suddenly something terrible happens (sorry no spoilers) which shifts their story into one of angst, tension, drama, bloody and heartbreaking consequences that will cost them the loss of their dreams...... and each other.
Told from both POV's but the narration is what cost this listen the loss of a star because Eric Dove's voice is adult but the female narrator who did the main female voices sounded way too young for the part and it would have been far better narrated by the female narrator who did the voice of the Reporter as she sounded older. This gave the listen a YA/NA feel.
Worth a credit? Yes, a very enjoyable listen which does end on a happy scene but, as there is book 2 Wicked Reunion waiting in the wings, there love story isn't over yet.... and I can't wait but I hope they choose another female narrator.

The story was alright just alright. There was an attempt to start the story off in a was that would grab your attention by having you questioning how did the character end up in that situation. Unfortunately, this question was never answered indetal. Initially the characters had no substance and were rather boring. Later attempts to add details and passion was too late. I wasn't interested in either character, found them both to be rather whinning. The ending had both characters having their professionals dreams come true. The author put much more substance in that part of the story than their reconciliation.
I don't normally write reviews however I just have to say I was really disappointed in the male lead.
Especially in the last couple of chapters he was a real coward and I just don't find that sexy.
The "separation angst" was to drawn out and Ace acted like a child not a rock star with a backbone I just lost all respect for him.
