Wicked White by Michelle A Valentine .... Review by Dawn

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?

I liked this book, I didn't love it but I did enjoy it. 
The main characters were very likable.  Ace and Iris were perfectly sweet and I believed the story told by the author. 
I could see this being a best seller in an audience 16 and up, so YA. 
I had a problem with the "insta love"  that this story is selling. But I have a problem with that in general . The back and forth waiting each other out between Ace and Iris got a bit tired. I did enjoy very much the fact that Ace was not a jerk. It's not very often we have a rocker with a good soul and good intentions. I found that refreshing. 
I liked Adele and Birdie very much, they gave the story the humor . 
It was just a bit sophomoric and I felt it lacked in intensity. 
A quick and easy read .  

I was given this book via NetGalley for my honest review
