My Thoughts 

I adored this one. It was an incredibly likeable and very charming holiday read. The story flows and even as you wonder how it's all going to come together, it does - and zvery satisfactorily. 

I've never read an unenjoyable Tessa Bailey novel. Wreck the Halls was sooo much fun, despite some cringe, imo -  main characters named Beat and Melody as well as some of the intimate time talk. 

Ms. Bailey writes chemistry so wonderfully and this title was the contemporary forced proximity, insta-love, oh-no there's just one bed! holiday timed wonderfully steamy novel that I didn't know I was hoping for. 


Thank you to Avon and NetGalley for the DRC


#1 New York Times bestselling author Tessa Bailey delivers a sexy, hilarious standalone holiday rom-com about the adult children of two former rock stars who team up to convince their estranged mothers to play a Christmas Eve concert…

Melody Gallard may be the daughter of music royalty, but her world is far from glamorous. She spends her days restoring old books and avoiding the limelight (one awkward tabloid photo was enough, thanks). But when a producer offers hera lot of money to reunite her mother’s band on live tv, Mel begins to wonder if it’s time to rattle the cage, shake up her quiet life… and see him again. The only other person who could wrangle the rock and roll divas.

Beat Dawkins, the lead singer’s son, is Melody’s opposite—the camera loves him, he could charm the pants off anyone, and his mom is not a potential cult leader. Still, they might have been best friends if not for the legendary feud that broke up the band. When they met as teenagers, Mel felt an instant spark, but it’s nothing compared to the wild, intense attraction that builds as they embark on a madcap mission to convince their mothers to perform one last show. 

While dealing with rock star shenanigans, a 24-hour film crew, brawling Santas, and mobs of adoring fans, Mel starts to step out of her comfort zone. With Beat by her side, cheering her on, she’s never felt so understood. But Christmas Eve is fast approaching, and a decades-old scandal is poised to wreck everything—the Steel Birds reunion, their relationships with their mothers, and their newfound love.
