Don’t let my petite and innocent appearance fool you, because I’m one person you don’t want to cross. I’m Micah, the youngest member of Resurrection…If only they knew how young. My fake ID says I’m twenty-one.
And I will be…in four years.
What can I say? I blossomed early. Home sucked, so I left, determined to do something with my life.
Landing the gig as lead vocalist in the band was a dream come true. I’ve worked hard to make something of myself and nothing is going to ruin that for me.
Then He showed up.
He’s hot as hell and so into me. But he’s also twenty-five.
I don’t want to lie to him, but if the truth comes out I’ll lose everything, including him.
We first run into Mikayla at 14 desperately needing a way to get away from life as she knows it. She happens to get the chance to buy a new identity, becomes Micah, and instantly becomes 18. She packs up and leaves for the city taking on a waitressing job to get her through. Micah is a balls out kind of girl and takes no BS from anyone, then at 21 (or at least according to her license) she lands an audition for the band Resurrection and meets Saxon Waite.
Saxon is an ex bad boy rocker who is managing his cousins band. His rise to fame at an early age gave him the ability to abuse substances and ended up ruining his and others careers. He has been laying low attempting to turn his life around. The draw between Sax and Micah is instant but he fights his feelings for her dwelling on their age differences as he is 27 and she is 21 (or so he thinks!)
I love Missy’s books! She has the uncanny ability to draw you into the story and hold you hostage, not that I am complaining in the least. I was happy to be sucked into Micah and Sax’s world it was fun, the characters all worked together well, the story as usual was wonderfully written, and I am glad this was a rocker book as I have a slight addiction to them, and wasn’t ripping my heart out like her last book Out of Reach (it was an amazing book!!).
I’m giving Wicked Innocence 5 Sparkling Stars.
Missy lives in a small town in Central Victoria with her husband, and her confused pets (a dog who think she’s a cat, a cat who thinks he’s a dog…you get the picture).
When she’s not writing, she can usually be found looking for something to read.
