*Release Day Blitz and Giveaway* Wicked Innocence by Missy Johnson

***Release Day Review***

Wicked Innocence by Missy Johnson


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. Saxon Waite, ex bad boy of rock.

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.

About Missy Johnson

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 get the picture).

When she's not writing, she can usually be found looking for something to read.

4.5 Star Review

I have a confession.....I have a mad obsession with rock star books. I have to read any rock star books that I come across. So once I saw that Missy Johnson's next book was going to be a rock star book i couldn't wait to read it.

I really liked this book, but unfortunately I didn't fall madly in love with it.

Micah has had a really bad start to her life. Her mother is the lowest of the low and Micah plans to escape her family home and get very far away from her mum and her abuse. The trouble with her plan is, Micah is only 14. To survive Micah pays for a new identity, changes her age to 18 and leaves.
3 years go by and Micah is happier. She, however, doesn't let anybody get close to her because she can't afford to get any information mixed up and reveal her lies. She has a flat that she shares with somebody and a job. Micah has also discovered a love for singing and has been trying to get in a band for awhile. Luckily Micah is offered a audition with an up and coming band. She is so nervous that she messes it up and is devestated. To try and get another shot she sings again and this time is perfect. The band offers her a gig. If she pulls things off she can join the band. The one piece of information they didn't tell her was that the world famous, bad boy of rock will be her new manager.

One road trip/band tour later, sex, lies, truths and fighting, you get to see if Micah gets her HEA.
Micah is a very strong girl who I absolutely admired. Walking away from everything you know at 14 regardless of the situation is extremly brave. She has been through so much and done things most 14 year olds wouldn't even dream about. Then at 17 she is even stronger than at 14. Reading about her strength was incredible and heart warming. I completely undersood why she never told anybody about her age, even Saxon. It was a survival technique, whether it was wrong or not. Micah was very mature because of all her life experience. I never once felt I was reading about a 17 year old girl, like she was supposed to be. Missy did a great job at not making Micah seem young even though she was.

Saxon rose to fame at a very early age. Through being in a band, he started abusing substances and by doing so he ruined his career and also changed other peoples lives dramatically. He has been off the grid, trying to turn his life around for awhile, until he starts to manage his cousins band.

Saxon used to be a bad boy but as a reader we never really saw about any of this. We only really got to see the reformed bad boy. Becauase of this I felt Saxon came across as quite a weak character. I just really wanted more from him. His nice, sweet side was nice to read about, but I'd have liked the bad boy to come out every now and then. I could understand why Saxon fought his feelings towards Micah for so long. He was her manager and he was older than her. I also understood why Micah kept from telling him her real age because he was so hung up on the age gap. I enjoyed reading about him fighting his feeling towards Micah and trying to do the right thing by her and the band. The sexual tension between them was also hot. I wish though that the sexual tension and games carried on longer between them before they gave in. It all happened very quickly.

The story was told at a good pace, but I felt some parts were slightly rushed. If the book was longer then I think the rushing wouldn't have been an issue as it would have been padded out more.

The sex scenes were well written, but not smoking hot. I liked that the sex didn't overtake the book though and didn't interfere with the story as a whole.

The reason I took half a star off was because of the ending. Yes, it finished on a positive note, but the story didn't actually seem finished. I was left wanting more and wanting to know how everything ended up.

Overall I did enjoy the book. Missy Johnson is a very taented writter and I love all her books. Missy wrote a rock star book with a twist and she pulled it off in my eyes. - Kim
