Elliott Redeemed
Preload #2
By Scarlett Cole
Releasing August 29th, 2017

In Elliott Redeemed (Preload #2) by Scarlett Cole, Kendalee Walker is struggling to make ends meet, but there's nothing more important to her than her son whose life has been turned upside down by a horrible wrong doing. However, when Kendalee and her son Daniel meet Elliott 'Pyro' Dawson, the lead guitarist of Preload,  Kendalee believes things can only get better, especially when Elliott connects with Daniel like no one ever has before. Yet, the more time they spend together, the more Elliott finds his feelings for Kendalee growing until he knows he can no longer keep his past a secret. Will Elliott be able to win Kendalee's heart, or will his past send her running scared?

What a wonderful and captivating read Ms. Cole has penned in this book where the main characters back stories tugged at my heartstrings, especially that of the hero, as he's survived so much in his past that is still having an effect on his life. The way this story started had me sympathizing with the hero, as the torment he suffered at the hands of someone that should have loved him and the lose of a friend are painful reminders of his past that continue to surface. Will there ever be a time when he doesn't remember? Yet, what I enjoyed most about the beginning of this story is the moment the hero and heroine came face-to-face for the first time, as there is an instant attraction that just keeps getting stronger and it made me want to keep reading to discover more about the hero and whether the heroine would be able to handle whatever Elliott was keeping from her.

As for the dialogue, it was powerful and emotional due to the main characters back stories and what the heroine's son has been through that creates a bond between Elliott and Daniel, as Elliott had a horrible past that makes him the best person for Kendalee's teenage boy to respond to and hopefully open up to. Will Elliott be able to help Daniel? Will Kendalee be able to accept that she may not be able to help her son without Elliott? Moreover, the heroine is resilient, courageous and I liked how determined she was to do everything in her power to make things easier for her son, even if it means preventing her soon-to-be ex-husband from having any contact with the boy. I also liked how the heroine let Elliott into her life, because she needs someone to unload to, even though accepting help doesn't come easily not after what her ex did. While the hero, I couldn't help but feel sorry for him when it came to his past. Yet, in saying that, he's done well for himself with being a part of Preload and I liked how kind and caring he was towards the heroine's son with the way he lent a friendly ear. However, what I liked most about the hero is the way he was determined to help the heroine and her son because it's palpable he needs them just as much as they need him.

Overall, Ms. Cole has delivered a fantastic and scorching read in this book where the chemistry was wonderful, the romance so hot that it was a wonder my kindle didn't go up in flames, and the ending had me sympathizing with the main characters, as Elliott's past certainly makes it hard for the heroine not to feel the way she does. Can Kendalee find a way to understand all that he's been through without comparing his past to what her son did to lessen his pain? However, I loved how the heroine made things right with Elliott and the decision the hero made to help him deal with everything that's happened to him in the past and help him to be the man Kendalee needs without her having to worry about him falling back on dangerous habits. I would recommend Elliott Redeemed by Scarlett Cole, if you enjoy second chance romances; rockstar romances; or books by authors Meghan March, Lauren Blakely, Cari Quinn and Kylie Scott.

A single mom and tortured musician find common ground in Scarlett Cole's Elliott Redeemed, the second standalone romance about the band Preload.
Elliott “Pyro” Dawson burns up the lead guitar like a legend. But the nickname Pyro isn’t just a clever play on words. It’s much darker. A past he's fought like hell to overcome.
Grocery store cashier Kendalee Walker is at her wits end and homeless. She's watched her fourteen-year-old son, Daniel, go so far off the rails, he can no longer see the tracks.
When the two are brought together, attraction flares, but can Elliott find the family he never had with the sexy woman and her son, or will he fall back on dangerous habits?

He lay down on the bed and pulled her into his arms before tugging the bedding over the two of them. It was a little damp in places because of all their ice play, and he smiled at the reminder. “What I am into is finding out what the person I’m with wants to try. I’m into good old missionary on a Sunday morning when I’m hungover and just want to get off. I’m into sex in a field while hiking or on the deck of my cottage. Some days, I’m into trying a hundred different positions before getting off. I’m into cuffs and toys and exploring. I’m not into being called Sir, or hurting someone, or expecting submission. I just want to explore, and I want to find someone who wants to do that with me.”
“Hmm? What are you into?” he asked, kissing her forehead.
“It would appear to be you. I’m into you, Elliott. And missionary position. And outdoor sex. And a hundred positions. And I’d really like to figure out whether a reverse cowgirl is really a thing.”
Elliott barked out a laugh. “Reverse cowgirl?”
Kendalee chuckled. “Yeah. Like . . . your . . . you know . . . it doesn’t naturally bend that way, right?”
“Oh Lord, woman. It’s got quite the range of movement, but next up, we’re going reverse cowgirl.”
They lay in silence, and Elliott clicked off the light.
“Yeah, Lee.”
“Don’t make me fall in love with you. I’m not sure my heart is quite ready for it yet.”
His own heart skipped a beat at her declaration.
Because it meant she was thinking about it. About him, that way.
“Can’t help you with that one, honey. It’s probably the only thing I can’t do for you.”
Kendalee sighed against him, burrowing closer into his side. “Thought so.”
Elliott smiled as he closed his eyes and drifted off to sleep.

The tattoo across my right hip says it all really. A Life Less Ordinary. Inked by the amazingly talented Luke Wessman at the Wooster Street Social Club (a.k.a. New York Ink). Why is it important? Well, it sums up my view on life. That we should all aspire to live a life that is less boring, less predictable. Be bold, and do something amazing. I’ve made some crazy choices. I’ve been a car maker, a consultant, and even a senior executive at a large retailer running strategy. Born in England, spent time in the U.S. and Japan, before ending up in Canada were I met my own, personal hero – all six and a half feet of him. Both of us are scorpios! Yeah, I know! Should have checked the astrological signs earlier, but somehow it works for us. We have two amazing kids, who I either could never part with or could easily be convinced to sell on e-bay.
I’ve wanted to be a writer for a really long time. Check through my office cupboards or my computer and you’ll find half written stories and character descriptions everywhere. Now I'm getting the chance to follow that dream.
