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.

Spoiler-free review

Micah is just barely legal.  Her fake ID says she is 21 but in reality she is only 17. She ran away from her past, and trying to make it as a singer. Saxon is already a washed up rock star at 25. He lost it all after a near fatal accident cost him his career. Micah auditions for the band Sax is managing. They hit the road and go on tour. Sax and Micah experienced a lot in their short lives, and they are little broken and feeling guilty about the mistakes they made. Can they move forward and grow or will a fake ID change it all?

Wicked Innocence might be my favorite books by Missy Johnson. I liked the way this fast-paced story played out from dual points of view.  This forbidden affair (Micah is 17 & Sax is 25) is illegal…but it wasn't portrayed entirely as a “forbidden fruit” kind of teacher/student affair. Micah is a strong and smart young woman…but I wouldn’t call her wicked.  This book did not end with a cliffhanger.  Go one click this not so innocent rock and roll fairy tale.

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.”
