"The Rock Star’s Christmas Reunion" [The Connollys Series, Book 1] & [A Charisma Series Novel] by Heather Hiestand (aka Anh Leod)

Author's Book Description : Twelve years ago, Bax Connolly left his small town behind to find fame and fortune with his guitar. Now the legendary, tattooed rock star is back and has purchased a home. The bad boy of the music industry wants to reconnect with his estranged family by throwing a huge Christmas party. But his tough, working class relatives have no clue how to deal with their ultra-wealthy and famous prodigal son and want nothing to do with him.

Yakima Wannassay’s catering company needs a Christmas miracle to keep from going under, but she never expected Santa to deliver her the perfect holiday client—her former next door neighbor Bax. A recommendation from him could take her business to a whole new level. And when she steps under the mistletoe with the irresistible Bax, she finds herself wanting to mix business with pleasure. Too bad a long ago told little white lie could blow up in her face and ruin both Christmas and her future.

The Rock Star’s Christmas Reunion reunites a couple who were never together except in rumor, adds some music industry edge, and mixes in the joy of the holidays!

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! After years away, Bax (Baxter) has returned home to salvage his relationship with his family. However, he didn’t expect to connect with his old neighbor Yakima or to have her become the calming presence his life, especially when he finds that his family has more drama then he originally thought. Yet, will their lives mesh up enough to be anything more than a fling?

Entertaining, sweet, and full of unique twists. This sweet rockstar romance integrates its readers into small town life in Battlefield, Washington and more accurately the big boisterous Connolly family. I liked that even though this novel was based around Bax & Yakima it felt more like great setup to an intriguing series.

Bax and Yakima are an enjoyable pair. Plus, it was fun to see how Yakima mellowed Bax out and the steps it took to get him to be “vegan-ized,” while he brought out her “wild side” a bit. Their story might seem unrealistic at first but I liked how Ms. Hiestand normalized them both and kept everything believable in a way to say, “No one is perfect,” even though Bax and Yakima are perfect together.

I recommend this novel to those looking for a unique contemporary rockstar romance!
