In all that time, London hasn’t gotten over her forever love—or the pain—despite seeking solace in the arms of the one man no one dreamed she’d run to. When Wicked White’s lead singer goes MIA, Jared finds the time—and courage—to return to his hometown and face the mess he made. He’s shocked at how London’s life has changed, yet he’s determined to prove their love is worth fighting for. Is this breakup too big for any hope of a reunion tour? Or can London open her heart to Jared once again?

my 5 star review of Wicked Reunion
I really love Michelle Valentine, and everything she writes, i read. And this series is no exception. I loved Wicked White and Ace. But i really think I love JJ even more!
the heroine of this story is London, and it goes back and forth- POV's and "then" and "now" So we get to see the development of her character a lot. and she has grown up into a strong woman, but she still loves- Jared aka JJ White of Wicked White. Although he will always be her Jared Kraft , the baseball player and closet musician. She now works with children- expressing herself through art with the kiddos, and is married but just can't get over her first love- so her husband and London separate knowing it is for the best. Well she knows its for the best- him not so much.
Jared is the hero- and I really loved him. He went through a lot in this story- I hated the majority of things that happened to him, and some of the poor choices he made were because of a catalyst of events that started when he was playing ball. He was never the same- he left home and didn't look back. He kept in touch with no one except his mother- shattering London's heart in the process. But what happens when he returns to town and makes a surprise delivery to London's home- second chance love story!!
I loved this story- and I want more of the series, and hope the rest of the guys in the band get one too! OH< and there is a Black Falcon shout out in this story too!!
