College sweethearts London Uphill and Jared Kraft were inseparable. He was a rising baseball star with a promising future, and she seemed destined to become “Mrs. Kraft.” Then a tragic night and a series of devastating mistakes caused Jared to walk away from his life, leaving London without any explanation and tearing the couple apart.
Five years later, Jared has reinvented himself by putting down the bat and picking up a guitar to play for the red-hot band Wicked White. 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?

This book, oh where do I start? I wanted to love it but I could only bring myself to like it. Wicked Reunion flip flops between the past and the present. Jared and London have loved one another since being kids, and you can totally feel their connection come off the pages. The time period focused on is college years to now, which is five years later. It’s the present where everything is a complicated fucking mess. I’m not going to talk about the plot of the book at all because there is so much craziness that you just need to experience yourself and see if you like it.
I get that not every book is for everyone, but this one just didn’t do it for me. 😦 I love Michelle and her writing but the dynamics between the characters and the situations they find themselves in…..I can’t see people being able to get over and work things out so easily. Yes I get it’s fiction, and yes it’s just a book. But the characters involved I just couldn’t connect with or the hella-crazy situation London and Jared for that matter find themselves in. It was a book that I really didn’t want any of the characters to find an Happily Ever After. But like I said not every book is for everyone. I know some will love it and that’s great! But for me Wicked Reunion was just mehhhh for me.
