About the Author
Michelle A. Valentine is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Rock the Heart. Wicked Reunion is the second novel in her Wicked White romance series. She attended college as a drafting and design major, but her love of people soon persuaded her to join the nursing field. It wasn't until after the birth of her son that she began her love affair with romance novels, and she hasn't looked back since. When she's not writing, she feeds her music addiction, dabbles in party planning, and expresses herself by working with arts and crafts. She lives in Columbus, Ohio, with her husband, son, and two beloved dogs.

Jared and London's story goes way back. Sweethearts since forever until Jared takes off, never to be seen by her again.
Girl meets boy. Girl and boy fall in love. Boy breaks her heart. His brother consoles her. Boy comes back.
5 years later, he is part of the famous Wicked White, but still in love with London. His unexpected return to town throws everything into disarray.
Poor London - she has never stopped loving Jared, never really gave up hope he would come home, never really moved on.
There is a lot of emotion in Wicked Reunion. If I was London I would have nut punched Jared the first time I saw him again! I could understand why she acted like she did, but still gah!
There is a lot of angsty, confused emotions in Wicked Reunion. Poor London is a a bit of a mess really, and I felt for her. There were a couple of times when I shed a tear for her.
I liked Wicked Reunion, but there was just something it was missing that stopped me from loving it. I can't quite put my finger on what it was though that was missing.
I enjoyed the journey that Jared and London have taken to get to this point in their lives though, and look forward to more of this series - hopefully we will get more of Ace and his relationship with the guys in his band!
That was five years ago, and while he still looks back every single day, not once has he actually gone back ... till now.
Wicked Reunion, by Michelle A. Valentine tells the story of Wicked White's guitarist and frontman wannabe JJ White, formerly known as Jared Kraft.
Plucked from obscurity and coerced, by the label he signed to, into playing for a band he'd much rather be leading, he's found the popularity he's convinced he deserves, but without being up front ... he's really not happy. He knows however, that the ultimate root of his discontent lies back home with the family and the girl he's ignored for five very long years.
Like many romance novels these days, its written from dual POVs, Jared and London each get to tell their story, but each tell both stories. What's happening now, and what happened then, with chapter long flashbacks from each of them interspersed with the 'now', slowly filling in the blanks so that by the time they finally actually meet again, the reader is almost up to date about what was so terrible about those events that drove Jared to wonder if he could ever return home.
I really really enjoyed this story, but there were a couple of things that bothered me a little.
First, while it is an interrelated standalone, being related to the first book in the series, Wicked White by Jared being in the same band as Ace, the male lead from that book, there's surprisingly little interatction between Jared and Ace, but that's not what bothered me. What bothered me is that reading this book second (which isn't necessary, but would, I suspect be typical) the reader is given very few cues at the start regarding where this story fits in, chronologically speaking, with the first, so, I'll tell you.
Obviously, the flashback portions of the story are set years before, but the main part of the story actually begins at the same time, or possibly even a little before the opening chapter of Wicked White, and runs parallel with it, though if you've read the first book you'll understand why there's very little interaction between the two stories.
Once I had that little conundrum finally sorted out in my head, I really got into it, thoroughly enjoying that immersive experience of having the world around you disappear for a while and living inside the book.
Jared, London, Wes (Jared's brother) and Sam (London's BFF) all jump off the page as fully realized characters, each with their own priorities and interests woven through a story that is frustrating, endearing, bittersweet and, at times, heartbreaking.
My only other gripe with the story is that I really really wanted more. I understand that, particularly when writing epilogues to stories where the author clearly intends more books to come in the series, they have to be circumspect about how much they reveal and how much they tease, but come on ... just another chapter? Please?
