It’s time to meet your newest rockstar obsession, Jared Kraft, in WICKED REUNION by Michelle A. Valentine! WICKED REUNION is the ultimate second chance romance – Jared and London’s story is available now!
About WICKED REUNION:
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?

Wicked Reunion by Michelle A. Valentine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
In book one Wicked White we were able to see the turmoil between
the band members told through Ace’s point of view.
In Wicked Reunion, we get to see and feel more of the trouble between
the band members as Jared Kraft tells his story.
Same time with Jared returning home when Ace disappeared.
Told through the point of views of Jared and London Uphill as the story
flip-flops from then and now.
Jared had a promising career in front of him. He was an all-star baseball player in college and he was already being scouted.
A family tragedy sends Jared into a downward spiral.
London is the sweet girl next door, friends with Jared and his
brother Wes. As they grew, friendship turns to love and Wes feels the sting
as he too, fell for London.
Whew, Jared was a train wreck waiting to happen. His short temper
and lack of rational thought caused the calamity, which became his life.
Did you ever want to scream into your kindle “knock it off and get
your shit together”?
Yeah, exactly how I felt when Jared screwed things
up big time.
Running away not only changed his life it also changed the
life path of London and Wes.
I can’t tell you how many times I want to shake some sense into
London. Jeez Louise, Jared left you and yet you still ache and dream
I did feel bad for Wes, but I knew he didn’t stand a chance.
Drama, tragedy, loss, some spicy scenes with no cliffhanger makes
me a happy camper. The ending was uplifting and hinted that maybe
the guys in Wicked White are finally getting along, well, some of them.
Time will tell.

My mouth drops open and I can’t do anything but stare. It’s like seeing a ghost—something you never in your life ever expected to see—and I just can’t look away. I resist the urge to reach down and pinch myself to make sure this moment is real.
Is this his idea of some twisted joke? I mean, there’s no way in hell that Jared Kraft is standing in my doorway with a dozen yellow roses after five years without a single word.
Shit like that only happens in movies, and my life for damn sure isn’t some glamorous fairy tale.
I stand there, staring like an idiot, while my brain tries to work out exactly what’s going on here. I furrow my brow. This has to be a dream. No way this man has the nerve to just show up here like this—not after all this time.
I step back and take a long moment to study his face. He looks exactly the same as the last time I saw him, only his hair is longer—more shaggy and unkempt—the style I’ve seen him wear whenever I see pictures of him with his band, Wicked White. To prove to myself that this really is a dream, I reach down and bunch some skin up on my arm and then pinch with all my might.
“Ouch!” I yelp as I inspect the flesh my nails dug into.
My breath catches the moment I realize that the man who used to be my everything—the man who took off five years ago, leaving me and his family behind without so much as a good-bye or piss off—is standing on my porch.
When my eyes meet his, so many questions rage through my mind, but before I can open my mouth to ask a single one, anger begins to boil over inside me. How dare he just come waltzing into my life after all this time?
My body reacts of its own accord and my hand darts out to snatch the flowers out of his hand. His eyes grow wider when I slam them down onto my porch and then smack his face as hard as I can.
