ROOM TO BREATHE by You Me at Six
This song is on my WICKED WHITE playlist because the moment it blasted through my speakers I got goose bumps. It was like the main character of the story, Ace White, was singing to me, telling me about his story and how he felt so trapped by his fame. It hit so close to home that I could close my eyes and picture Ace with his long bronze hair, pouring his heart out on stage, singing this song to a sold-out crowd who didn’t understand this was his goodbye song to fame. It was like this song was made just for this book. Every time I hear this song, I immediately think of this book and how I felt when I was writing it.

After his mother dies, rock star Ace White—lead singer of the red-hot band Wicked White—is done with the celebrity game. The phony people, the meaningless one-night stands: he doesn’t want any of it anymore. Quitting in the middle of a sold-out tour, Ace sets out to find some place—any place—where he can be alone.
Aspiring singer Iris Easton’s life has never been easy. First, her mother walked out on her when she was a kid. Now she’s buried in debt, weeks after losing her beloved grandmother. When a mysterious and sexy new guy moves in next door, Iris can’t help but be drawn to his soulful gaze. She can tell there’s something from his past haunting him—something he’s not telling her.
Just as Ace starts falling for Iris, the media go on a worldwide hunt to find the missing rocker. Will true love conquer all, or will the truth be the very thing that tears the couple apart?
