Wicked Innocence by Missy Johnson Blog Tour

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.

He reached into his pocket and pulled out his ipod. “Put on some music if you like.”

I took it, letting my fingers glide over his. His eyes darted toward me briefly and my heart jumped. I quickly looked down, busying myself with his music collection. I ran through artists until I came across Severed. Smiling, I clicked play.

“You have your own music in here,” I said with a giggle.

He shrugged. “If I don’t appreciate it, then why should I expect anyone else to?”

“I guess. I just think it’s cute. Like an actor going to see themselves at the cinema.”

“You don’t think Nic Cage or Brad Pitt go to the movies?” he asked in mock horror.

“I don’t know. I met Brad Pitt once in Starbucks.”

He chuckled. “I can just imagine how that went down.”

“What’s that supposed to mean?” I asked, narrowing my eyes.

“Well, you were kind of freaked out when you realized who I was. Meeting someone actually famous? You’d lose the plot,” he laughed.

“Well, in my defense, I didn’t have posters of Brad Pitt all over my walls—” I shut my mouth, but it was too late. No, no, no…

“You had posters of me on your walls?” he repeated, amused. “Micah, that is adorable.”

“Shut up,” I mumbled, coving my face with my hands. He chuckled loudly next to me, clearly not ready to let this go. “No! No laughing. Just shut up and drive.”

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This was a fast read and had good potential but it felt rushed. Especially after Saxon found out Micah’s secret. The buildup was good but then BAM everything was done and I was shocked that no one even addressed the age difference after it was known; it was just like people were ok with it and moved on. I felt like there should have been more conflict or something because really, it was just a lot of buildup and some good sex and nothing else.

Characters: The characters were well written and likeable.
Sex: Oh yeah
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: No
Genre: Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes

I really enjoyed reading this book, and this was my first by this author. Micah had an innocence about her as she auditioned for the band run by a has-been rocker named Saxon. I thought the chemistry between the two was pretty good, and Micah seemed to be old beyond her years. She played the part of being 21 very well but I felt it should have dealt a bigger blow to Saxon and the band. Not to mention if she became famous how illegal it might have been. I thought the storyline was pretty good but a tad bit unrealistic. It was still engrossing and interesting to read but I felt it needed a bigger climax and resolution instead of absolution. Overall entertainment was four stars.

Have lived a lie for so long it’s no longer a lie, Micah has just been handed the chance of a life time. Will her past come back to haunt and take her future away?

Micah is a great character; she is a study in contradictions for sure. I felt that at one point her voice was very strong and so on point, but then she turned into more stereotype towards the end. Now please do not take that as I did not enjoy the story. I did. I just felt a little disappointment with the final development of the character. I really feel as the book was slightly rushed, and I am hoping that maybe this will be part of a bigger series. It was a fast read was some steamy parts, for sure a good quick pick up book.

This is my second Missy Johnson book. I can't say that I particularly cared for the first one book of hers that I read, but I wanted to give her books a second chance so I picked up this one.

Sadly, I was let down yet again. Good cover, interesting synopsis, but that was about it for me.

While it was a decently written book, it wasn't half as dark or twisted or really much of anything that it hinted at. It was actually very sweet, very predictable and almost dull. There wasn't any drama or anything to really make me want to keep reading it except the super sappy love story, which isn't really my thing to begin with. I picked it up hoping for WICKED, dark, running from my past problems and they just weren't there for me.

I don't think I'll be picking up another one of her works as this was basically the same issues I had with her previous book. Mislead by the cover and synopsis.

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.
