Publisher's Summary

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?

A BEAUTIFUL LOVE STORY.... UNTIL THINGS WENT WRONG

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.

- CAROLYN "I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again"

Couldn't get past the first chapter

I don't understand why such horrible narrator choices are made. This young, hot musician sounds like someone's grandfather. Sorry, but that's not my kink.
