~ Synopsis ~

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.


~ Excerpt ~

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.”

~ Review by Venture ~

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*
Micah left a world of pain and disappointment. She may look and act older than she is at the ripe old age of 21. Micah’s looks and maturity make her years older. However, everyone would be shocked to know that she actually is four years younger than 21 plus Micah isn’t her real name. Music has been escape since she was young. When she gets to audition for the band Resurrection she is excited and terrified. Meeting the Rock God that covered her teenage walls is just one more thing to be terrified about before her singing debut. Sax becomes a big portion of her life along with the band. He has enough problems with the four year age difference. She wants to tell him everything about herself when he shares his painful stories. If he found out that she is actually only seventeen and there is an eight year gap between them, then everything would be over.
I picked this book up while lounging in the sun waiting to dry off. I was done with the book before I realized it. Her book sucked me into the plight of Micah and Sax and I oblivious to the noise and heat. Missy always comes up with a story that is completely different than her previous books. It is what I love about her. She always brings new characters and new scenarios to the table. I love the fact you can’t read her name and know what kind of story she is putting in your hands this time.
Micah is tough because she has had to be to survive. Sax is tough because he had his own battles and disappointment. They are exactly what each other needs. The fact she is seventeen instead of 21 will tear apart what they have. This is a must read. My only disappointment is I wanted more in the Epilogue. Heck, I wanted more of Micah and Sax too. I would give this story 10 books but I will have to settle for 5.
