[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.

I liked the book and the plot, I don't know, I think it lacked something for me though. I don't know if I just expected more from it, and if that's the case, that's my problem.
Micah (as she is now known) is 17 but on paper, she's 21. After having a troubled upbringing she follows her dream and joins a band. A band which is managed by a former rock god.
There is an instant attraction from both of them and eventually, that leads to the inevitable... but that doesn't help Micah with the fact that she's 8 years younger than Saxon Waite... not 4 like he thinks.

I expected Micah to be a hell of a lot more fierce in this book, I think that's what surprised me. For someone who left home at a young age, she was very, shy and nervous. Surely someone who's done that should have a backbone?

Sax finally figures out Micah's age and at first, it bothers him, a lot. But, he kinda comes around to the idea. A little too easily for my liking...

Its a good story, it just needs more angst.
