Lennon Reborn
Preload #4
By Scarlett Cole
Releasing May 1st, 2018

From the queen of heart-pounding, sexy, emotional romance Scarlett Cole comes Lennon Reborn, a stunning, shattering rock star romance in the Preload series.

Lennon McCartney is not a broken man. Because being broken implies being whole once. When a horrific accident deprives him of the one thing he loves—his talent as a fierce and explosive drummer—Lennon is left with a life chained by an abusive mother, by crushing guilt over a tragic past. A life he doesn’t want.

Dr. Georgia Starr is a legend. She’s one of the most successful neurosurgeons in the world, coming from a long-line of respected New York doctors. Her life is built around solving complex medical cases in order to bring relief and hope to sick children. But the one problem she can’t solve is how to live her life. How to be shake loose the burden of being her elitist, arrogant father’s daughter. How to be free.

Can a man who despises his life and a woman who desperately needs to live find the answers, and love, with each other?

**Warning: Deals with dark themes and deep personal struggles.**

In Lennon Reborn (Preload #4) by Scarlett Cole, Lennon McCartney believes he doesn't have much to live for. So, when he's in a horrific accident and loses his chance to continue his life as a musician, he's all but given up hope of things in his life getting better. However, when Georgia Starr comes to his aid, he begins to see there's plenty to live for. Will Georgia be able to help Lennon heal the deep wounds of his past in order to achieve their happy ever?

What a beautifully-crafted, emotionally-devastating, fast-paced read Ms. Cole has penned in this fourth book of her Preload series, which is also the best of the series yet. Since Lennon has given up on life after everything he's been through and the heroine is ready to live her life the way she wants instead of caring about being the daughter of an elitist, arrogant father who doesn't respect her, even though she's accomplished so much as a  neurosurgeon. Will the pair be able to help each other heal from the wounds of their pasts?

The way this story started had me immediately hooked because Lennon hasn't had it easy in life and it's understandable why he's ready to give up on life. However, it was from the moment the hero and heroine meet where this story really takes off, as Georgia is the bright light at the end of Lennon's dark tunnel and determined to show him that he shouldn't give up. Will she be able to convince him that life is worth living, especially after what he's lost because of the accident? 

As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the main characters back stories, especially that of the hero and I could understand why his bandmates are so determined to make him realize how much he's loved and that he'll never be alone again. Will he finally unload to his friends all that he's been through in his life? Moreover, the main characters are incredible, well-developed and I loved every interaction between them, as the heroine isn't about to let Lennon drown in his sorrow.

With the heroine, she's resilient, courageous and I liked how determined she was to help Lennon through everything because his world has been turned upside down. I also liked how she finally stood up to her father and wasn't about to let him get away with anything, especially with what he tries to do that leaves the heroine making big decisions for her life and finally realizing that she's better off without such impropriety in her life. Why can't her father love her like a father should? While the hero, I absolutely loved him. He goes through so much in this story, but I loved that he put his trust in the heroine because letting Georgia get to know all of him -- the good and the bad -- goes a long way to helping him heal. I also loved the tight bond he shares with his bandmates and how they're not about to let him give up either. He's family and loved and nothing will ever change that. 

Overall, Ms. Cole has delivered a superb read in this book where the chemistry between this couple was powerful; the romance was hot and shows how good these two are together; and the ending had me loving how these two work through their biggest obstacle to be together because someone has to make a tough choice. Will it be Georgia or Lennon? However, it was the epilogue that wrapped this story up perfectly because of how good things have worked out for the hero after everything he's been through. Really, meeting the heroine is the best thing to happen to him. I would recommend Lennon Reborn by Scarlett Cole, if you enjoy tear-jerking stories that will leave you with a smile on your face at the end when the main characters achieve their happy ever after or if you enjoy books by authors Kimberly Kincaid, Avery Flynn, Claudia Connor and Devney Perry. Just remember to have a tissue handy when you start reading this story. You'll need it!

Georgia ripped off her coat and tucked it around the man of the floor. The air was sharp against her skin. Without thinking, she used her hand to move the stray hairs from across his face, and the man gasped. She checked his pulse and could tell the blood loss was getting dangerous.
“What’s your name?” she asked as she shone her light in his eyes. The tightness in her gut relaxed a little when they responded as they should.
The man hissed in a breath. “Lennon.”
“Do you know what day it is?” she asked.
“April . . . fucking . . . Fool’s . . . day.”
“Well, Lennon,” she said calmly, “the paramedics are almost here, and we’ll get you out of here soon.” She reached for his uninjured hand and squeezed it between hers. There was a spark of static between them, white and powerful. His life force. The thought was overwhelming.
“Let me go . . .”
She released his clammy hand immediately. “I’m sorry, I was just trying to give you some comfort. I—”
He reached for her hand, gasping. His fingers were large against hers. “No . . . you should . . . let . . . me . . . go.”
His eyes rolled closed.
No! She wouldn’t let him die. She tapped the side of his face until his eyes opened. “Wake up. I am not letting you go anywhere,” she said, knowing that any semblance of the professionalism to which she usually clung was slipping away. She believed patients’ stories about tunnels of white light, and seeing loved ones, and auras dimming. And she knew everyone needed to be allowed to leave if they really felt it was their time. But there was something so different about Lennon. She could feel his life force vibrate from his hand into hers, as if she taken hold of an electric fence. The energy was slipping away from him, and she would do anything to put it back in him.
He tugged her down toward him, so his lips could brush against her ear. “I’m . . . tired . . . of my life. Just . . . let me . . . go.”
His eyes closed, again.
She rested her forehead on his. “Your work here on Earth isn’t done, Lennon,” she said, tears burning her eyes. “And I am not going to let you go.”

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.
