Fighting the darkness of their pasts, talented heavy metal musicians Curtis Scrimm and Dezra Hopkins seek holiday solitude but find each other.


Curtis Scrimm and Dezra Hopkins have lived both the highs and the lows of life-literally. They've both known the joy of performing to hordes of screaming fans and the horror of betraying all that they love and admire. They've both just gotten out of rehab.

But things are always darkest before the dawn, and with this Christmas comes redemption. It arrives in an unlikely place, in the solitary and deadly beauty of Yellowstone Park. It comes in the form of desperation and unquenchable desire, though things are never so black and white. The spark is a good bass line, the hottest lick from an electric guitar, and a primalistic roar like a furious lioness, and it will ignite an inferno of inspiration that both had been seeking. But that flame needs to be fanned. Curt and Dezra can nurture it with each other. Then they'll need to find enough trust to make it burn forever.

Title: Metal and Mistletoe Author: Brooklyn Ann Publisher: Boroughs Publishing Group Series: Hearts of Metal Book 4 Reviewed By: Arlena Dean Rating: Five Review: "Metal and Mistletoe" by Brooklyn Ann My Thoughts.... This was another one of this authors series that I loved 'Hearts of Metal Book 4 " Metal and Mistletoe" that featured Curt Scrimm and Dezra Hopkins who had been involved deeply in metal music were now recovering addicts where they met in rehab, working to stay sober while staying to find themselves in what was ahead of them in their careers. I loved how this author puts these two together on a wonderful retreat in the Yellowstone National Park during Christmas and presenting us with a woman of color into the story. You might say they were two opposites in the way they were raised but when it came down to it I would say these two were made for each other even though their music was of a different genre. However, there music will draw them together so will they find redemption and comfort in each other? I loved how this story brings in many characters from the former series that ties this story so well together. and especially how we find out what had happened with Curtis before rehab. This was indeed a beautiful read of a 'A Holiday Redemption... of a story of addiction, recovery, metal music and in the end a beautiful love.'

I felt like this one was kinda unnecessary. Even though in book 1, Kinley takes over as a temp in Curt's place, and Curt is sent to rehab, I felt that a story explaining his disappearance to the band was just filler for filler sake. But I don't think it was so bad that it wasn't good. The characters were really fleshed out and I can appreciate their addiction issues they were trying to get over. It can't be hard to be in an industry where it's more or less expected you'd be a user of SOME kind of drug, want to stay in it, and avoid those toxins entirely. I even like to think the idea of the band that Curt and Dez are going to make are recovering addicts who have been through rehab. Even though that wasn't explicitly said in the arc, it's a nice thought. It would give the characters more meaning than just to have part in another band. I absolutely love how Dez and Curt fit together. Curt wants nothing to do with the holidays and tries to escape it, while Dez never got the experience as a kid because of her foster parents' religious beliefs and wants life to continue on her terms. So instead of griping about the situation, Curt looks passed his own preferences and desires to help some one else have an experience they never had. Only after all this does he realize that he's in love with the chocolate skinned goddess. Also, I love that she worries he won't like her because of her skin. It supports the problem that is racism even in today's world and shoves it aside and off the range entirely because it was a non issue in the first place. She finds out it's not an issue in his mind a little too late, but still steps up to the plate after she tried to avoid batting altogether because of fear.
