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 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.
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.”

I must admit after reading this book for the first time I was kind of disappointed. This was the first book that I 've read from this author and with all the promotion going around, the blurb and teasers I was looking for something spectacular inside I got an 'OK' love story which I liked.
This Story is written from a dual Point of View; Micah and Saxon. Both brought together by a world and love for music. Micah ID says that she is 21 years of age when in reality she is only 17. Forced to leave her home due to unfortunate circumstances she is living an adult life under a Fake identity. She has always loved music and when she tries out for a band and meets the manager Saxon, things in her life turn around.
Saxon lived the life of your typical rock star. When fame got to much for him , he drank which lead to an accident changed his life and behaviour. Now the manager of the band that Micah is singing with he tries to convince himself that she is too young for him (21) and pushes away his feelings.
I did like the chemistry between Micah and Saxon. They both shared more than your usual sexual relationship and that was refreshing to see. The writer writes a good love story however I wanted a little more to fall in love. I was looking for a big bang instead I got a little smoke with the story. I am not sure how the title of the book”Wicked Innocence” is tied to the story because Micah nor Saxon was wicked nor Innocence.
The author has some interesting secondary characters and writes some funny scenes.
Overall, I felt that the story was ok and I liked it. Loved it? No but it was cute.
