Goodreads Summary: 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. Saxon Waite, ex bad boy of rock.

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.

My Rating: 3 Rockstars


I love rocker books. I love a guitar playing guy that can sing in front of thousands of people. Maybe it’s because I only dream about becoming famous from my awesome singing stills…just kidding.

I found this book on Facebook, and of course I had high hopes, as I always do. However this one just missed the mark with me. It wasn’t believable enough for me. I may be naive and live in an extremely small town. I just can’t see a 14 year old girl passing as 18.

Micah whose real name is Mckayla, finds herself in a run down crummy apartment buy a fake id, birth certificate and passport off a guy, I believe she found on Craigslist. She gets all of new IDs and starts a new life.

One day she shows up at an audition for an upcoming band. She doesn’t quite hit it off at first, but they give her a second chance and it really impressed the band. Soon after, she meets Saxon Waite, the band’s manager, who happens to be a rockstar.

Sure Saxon is a swoon worthy 25 year old who had gotten himself into trouble and took a step back from the limelight.When he meets Micah, he notices she isn’t like other girls.He tries to stay away from her, but it is hard to deny the attraction they have for one another.

Going into this book, you know that it is going to blow up in her face.The truth was going to come out eventually. The thing that bothered me was of course the fact that she was underage.  Another thing being the fact that when he thought that Micah was 21, Saxton had a issue with her being that much younger than him. He was 25. When the truth was revealed, he just couldn’t drop the fact that he was still crazy about her.

It was a good concept though. And I realized I have read quite a few books by Missy Johnson, but this one is my least favorite. It is a Kindle Unlimited, so if you are still intrigued check it out!
