After his mother dies, rock star Ace White—lead singer of the red-hot band Wicked White—is done with the celebrity game.

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?

I am a fan of the Black Falcon Series so I was excited to see what this novel was all about being that it is in the rocker scene. This was an enjoyable read although I did feel frustrated with both characters. Even still I did enjoy the flow, pace and storyline. I liked that this book did not feel rushed to get to that HEA. Both of these characters had problems but both of them eventually worked through them in a way that was the best for them and each other.

Iris is this super sweet girl with big dreams of making it big on Broadway and Ace is a runaway rockstar. Ace ran off the stage the moment he found out his adoptive mom is in the hospital. Instead of his manager telling him he should go to the hospital, she told him to go on stage. He went but he just could not do it anymore, these people did not have his best interest at heart. He could not even do his own music. Iris is also the trailer park manager and Ace is now the mysterious new tenant running and hiding from his past. Iris is trying to figure out how to keep what she inherit and Ace was trying to lose what he had always wanted. There was a lot of push and pull between Ace and Iris. Ace knew he needed to stay away from Iris because someone might figure out who he is which he does not want. Iris on the other hand just want to figure out why Ace hates her so much, why he keeps coming her aid only to push her away the next moment.

First I did not like that Iris allowed Ace to be rude to her but her grandmother taught her to always be kind. After a while she did break down his resistance and he did end up being super sweet to her. Ace is a sweet guy but with a little anger issues. Together they were a super great fit, well until people found out who Ace was. Then those two became super idiots. The last part of the book was filled with tension I was rooting for them to get their stuff together and I kept hoping that every page I turned would be Ace and Iris living their HEA. I really loved the way the book played out. Great thing was this book was not rushed. Great thing is both of them got the chance to live their dreams and the ending was really great one for both of them.

Overall I enjoyed this story. If you enjoy beautiful romance stories with strong moral characters and no over the top drama then obviously you will love this book! This is one good book. Go get your hands on this book if you want an easy and quick read.
