When Sydney Metcalf's bestie asks her to cater her wedding, Syd can't say no, even though the thought of going back to her hometown makes her break out in hives. She's off to a great start until best man and rock god Lazlo Stone calls with a request for her to cater the bachelor party too. Petit fours adorned with rose petals, she can handle. A cake shaped like boobs for the sexiest guy in the universe? She's not so sure. But this is the chance of a lifetime and she refuses to screw it up by being a prude...

When a sexy stripper dressed as a Plain Jane crashes the bachelor party, Laz is all about getting vertical and making some music with her. Too bad his stripper is really the caterer and the bride's best friend. After a kiss between them blazes out of control, he can't seem to stop thinking about sweet little Syd.

But everybody knows, life on the road and love don't mix...

REVIEW
Reforming the Rock Star is another great addition to Christine Bell's repertoire and left me grinning like a fool.

Lazlo Stone...what an unexpected treat he was!  Our 6'3" brute of a rock god is a bit of a softie.  Underneath a chest that dreams are made of (I have a great imagination), lies a huge heart and I loved every protective, sweet, dirty, witty ounce of him.  And when he meets the chef for his band mate and best friends wedding (also the brides BFF), I'm not the only one that did some swooning, because Sydney Metcalf is a bit smitten too.  But why would someone as hot and popular as Laz look twice at Syd - happiest creating culinary delights in her sweats?

"What to do you say Syd?  Want to come back to the house?  We can get you out of that tight skirt, I'll feed you, and then we can see if we can cook together?"

Sexy, witty and heartfelt, the actual storyline didn't hold any huge surprises but Laz and Syd's personalities, traits and feelings did and there was nothing not to love about either.  As I've found with all Christine's novels, the dry humour and chemistry shines and yes, it's a little tamer than some of her offerings, but what passion we do get sizzles.  And the epilogue...as a complete epilogue junkie I boarded the train to Happy-land (still grinning like a fool).

All in all Reforming the Rock Star was an enjoyable entertaining read.  It's worth mentioning that it follows on from Resisting the Musician written by Ally Blake but can be easily read as a standalone.  In all honesty, Christine has saved the characters that appeared in the first book as they didn't particularly endear themselves to me and I can't wait to see what Robin Covington brings to the table with Rocky and Lita's story.
