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

I adore Michelle Valentine’s rock star books. When I started Wicked White, I was expecting something similar to her Black Falcon series. I couldn’t have been more wrong. This book was so different from any of her others. I loved that Ace wasn’t your typical rock star. Then again, none of Michelle’s rockers are typical. That’s what makes them so special.

Ace White is the lead singer of Wicked White. He’s more successful than he ever dreamed he would be, but he’s done. Done with the fame,

After reading the Black Falcon series I was not expecting this book to be so sweet. I found the story of Ace and Iris just so ridiculously beautiful and I never wanted it to end.



Ace is on tour with his bitch of a manager and the band he doesn't even know when he get's the call saying that the woman who raised him is in the hospital and won't make it very long. Giving the band a big, fuck you, he leaves to go say his last goodbyes and doesn't plan on comi

I just didn't buy this you know?

The story started pretty well. If you're following my reviews and checking out the book I read then you'll know that rockstars are a favorite of mine. Musicians, actually. I just really like reading their hurty feelings and some of them are just misunderstood. And most of them? Absolutely swoony! That's why the blurb of Wicked White really appealed to me. A rockstar who just wanna run away from it all?

What a fabulously lovely and sweet tale

It’s an endearing and feel good and uplifting story that just made my day!!!

Iris Easton is the most endearing and lovable woman, who meets her Prince Charming disguised as a rock star!!!! But Ace White is not just a rock star….he’s so much more than that!!

4 Sweet and Angst (I love a rocker) Stars

Wicked White is a standalone and is part of the Wicked White series. I am assuming the next book continues Iris and Ace’s story, but I am not 100% sure.

This is my second Valentine book. I read Naughty King and loved it. I haven’t read her Black Falcon series, but it’s my understanding Black Falcon is less sweet and more emotional. You will be surprised that I’m not a huge rocker fan. I do read them, but it’s usually only for authors that I love or the boo

I absolutely loved Michelle A. Valentine's "Black Falcon" series so as soon as I heard that Michelle had written another music based series, I couldn't wait to get stuck in. Unfortunately "Wicked White" did not have the same impact on me and I felt that this story was not as good as I had expected it to be. I was left feeling a little disappointed.

A Michelle Valentine book that features a rock star? Yes please!

Ace White thought that getting to live his dream would be perfect, but the glitz and glam isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. When he gets news of his adopted mother’s failing health, he makes a choice – leave all that he thought he wanted to go home to spend the final moments with the only person who had ever loved him. But Ace doesn’t just leave for a brief moment, he escapes. Abandons his fame, his fans and his contract obligations

this was an ok love story. I did have a couple of problems with it, but it's probably just me and other people will love the story. I didn't like a guy quoting Shakespeare during sex. Not romantic to me, but maybe I've read too much Shakespeare.
He compares himself to Romeo. Ok, read some Romeo and Juliet first. Romeo claims to be in love with one girl then dumps her when he sees Juliet. He has a volatile temper and kills a couple of guys. So he's a player with a temper. Not good boyfriend mate

Rock Star, Ace leaves it all behind after the loss of his mother. Taking on a fake identity, Ace moves into a trailer park that has seen better times. Of course the rock star disappearing leaves a media fire storm in its wake and lots of people searching for the missing lead singer, Ace.

Iris dreamt of making it big on Broadway in NYC, but when her grandmother dies Iris must return to the trailer park her grandmother owned. Settling affairs is more difficult than she anticipated.

I refuse to call a book with characters over twenty-five a New Adult book. It’s just not.

Though she doesn’t put in an appearance until 10% of the way into the book, I knew from page two of Wicked White exactly what Iris was going to look like:

One of the most breathtaking women I’ve ever seen. Her long, dark hair falls over her shoulders in soft waves; her makeup is light, revealing her naturally smooth complexion, which causes her green eyes to sparkle. (Why does her complexion make her eyes spa

I have been a Michelle Valentine fan ever since I read her Black Falcon series. The series kept a good pace, containing interesting characters, and carried a lot of steam. That being said, I was super excited to start a new rocker series by her. Although Wicked White was a solid read, it didn't quite hit the mark for me in the "loved it" category. I suppose my primary reason for holding that feeling is that the characters didn't really mesh well for me. Ace was initially mean and surly toward Ir ...more

Wicked White was a quick lighthearted read. I've had this on my kindle for ages and finally had time to get started on this series. I liked Ace. He was the typical foster kid with the stroke of luck that got him discovered and thrusted into fronting the popular pop band, Wicked White. A product of marketing and record label and control, he's reached a point where he's not happy with the road his fame is taking him.

It's so common for rock star romances, these days, to be filled with the band mate

2.5 stars. I am a fan of this author so I was really looking forward to reading this book. While it is an easy read, unfortunately I had a hard time connecting with the characters. Individually they were fine but together it felt like something was missing. I never felt any connection with them and the angst didn't seem necessary. The best way to describe the ending was flat and I really wanted more.

While I'm sure I'm in the minority regarding this book, if you are fa

Wicked White, by the marvelous Michelle Valentine, is a wickedly wonderful, witty, raw, and racy roller coaster of a rock star romance that will swallow your heart and soul. Michelle Valentine is terrifically talented in transforming words to reality, bringing characters to life and making you fall in love with them, plopping you right into the story, and giving you huge case of the feels every step of the way. Wicked White is oh-so-swoonworthy yet sensitive. It's a soul-searing and moving maste ...more

I love Michelle Valentine- she never ever disappoints. And
another rock star book from her, I knew I was in for a
treat!


Ace White wanted the rock star life, but he also wanted to
write his own music, and that didn't happen. None of
it really happened how he wanted it. With a crazy overbearing
road manager, Jane Ann, by his side he realizes the rock
star life isn't everything he hoped for. And when he

Wicked White was such a fun read. Wicked White follows the story of Ace and Iris. Ace is the lead singer for the bad the Wicked White. He should be livin’ it up and loving his life. However, that’s not the case. Being a celebrity is not all that it’s cracked up to be and that fact is even more real to him when he looses his mom. When the people that he works with could care less about his loss, Ace makes an important, but drastic decision to leave it all behind.

This completed my day. Wicked White is all about dreams coming true and dreams which took the wrong turn... It's one hot read, but it's also something that you get to think about because the characters here along with their actions actually make sense.

Just a quick description of the characters:

✓Hot
✓Is really smart.
✓ Was lured into fame.
✓ Became a puppet of the recording company.
✓ Realized that he needed something concrete in his life.

The one thing that Michelle Valentine know how to do and do well, is write rockers that you fall in love with. Ace though is different than the boys of Black Falcon. Different in a good way. I loved Ace and Iris.


Ace White is tired of the celebrity game. Doing what everyone else wants. No one giving an inch of kindness in return when needed. So he leaves it all behind him. No looking back.


Iris Easton had a dream of being on Broadway. Leaving the lackluster life in her small town in Ohio behind.

If you're looking for a sexy, fast-paced rock star romance, Wicked White will be a highly enjoyable choice. This was a generally light-hearted story about two people who find each other unexpectedly, during a difficult time in their lives.

Our hero, Ace, is feeling confined by his rock star life... overly controlled by his manager, playing songs he doesn't feel in his heart. When he loses the only person who has really loved him, he runs away from it all.

While seeking escape in a remote place,
