Put on your Santa hat, drink some eggnog, and settle in the Michelle Hazen's new book - Christmas With the Band. This novella is book 3.5 of the "Sex, Love, and Rock and Roll" series and according to the author, the last book in this amazing rockstar series.
This quick enjoyable read is book 3.5 in the Sex, Love, and Rock and Roll series. It is not a standalone so I do recommend starting with book 1. Christmas With the Band is told from Ava’s POV. She is still with Jax (one of my favorite couples!) and they are off to spend Christmas with his band, The Red Letters. This novella is not a standalone - the previous books from this series should be read first.
One thing that I like about Michelle’s Hazen’s books is the character development. They are all strong and have traits that make them unique and flaws that sometimes want to shake some sense into them. She makes them human. In this case, there were times that I wanted to snap at Jera. We met Ava in Jax’s book “Insatiable” and the author painted her as a type A, in control character who bonded with Jax. Yes, she had faults and one of her actions hurt those in the band, but she also owned up to them in a very public way. Yet even though she has apologized and the rest of the band, including Jax, have forgiven her, Jada still cannot let go. Jada slings cruel words towards Ava.
I really enjoyed having this novella told from Ava’s POV. She was a character that I had a little more difficulty identifying with previously and it was good to really see her thoughts and feelings. I also loved “meeting up” with all my favorite characters. I do wish the novella was a little longer because I would have like to have seen further into the future i.e. Jada having her baby and how things go with Danny’s cancer, with those told from their POV. It is a bittersweet end to this rockstar series. I fell in love all the characters and I am sad that the series is over but, I am happy that they all got their HEAs.
I received this book as an ARC and I voluntarily leave this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
