Wreck the Halls by Tessa Bailey - ARC Review

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 her a 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.

When the book is by Tessa Bailey, you know you can expect great characters, a quirky story, and phenomenal chemistry and dirty talk.

This one delivers on all of the above.

Melody and Beat are children of the most famous female pop duo ever but as their mothers are feuding, they don't know one another at all...until they are thrown together with the possibility of starring in a reality show about getting their famous mothers to do a reunion show, on Christmas Eve in Rockefeller Center.

The book is set at Christmas, but it's not overpoweringly a Christmas book. It's a book about two people who are perfect for one another, but it takes a but for them to figure it out. The situations are funny and quirky and there are a few genuine laugh out loud moments, and the chemistry between them is amazing.

I loved the characters and the story.

I enjoyed and recommend this title.
