Nikki's Review:

Jesus. This book wrecked me. Like, it twisted my heart, flipped my tummy, and made me ugly cry. Picture me sitting all by myself snot and bawling! It was not pretty! I'm not gonna lie, some of the stuff in this story was difficult to read. The brutal truth in this book is both heartbreaking and amazing. Scarlett Cole has swept me off of my feet again with her brilliant story telling, and captivating characters!

Elliott had a shit start to his life. He was robbed of what most of us take for granted...a childhood. He was denied love and affection from the people who should have protected him from the world. So many times in this book I wanted to reach into the pages and cuddle him. I wanted to take his pain away. Kendalee was his chance at a redemption. She settled something in him. But she, and her son, also stirred up his demons. Poor Elliott was so conflicted. 

Kendalee is a mother who would do anything to protect her child. Her life is in turmoil and she doesn't have time for sexy rockstars. At least, that was before Elliott waltzed into her son's hospital room and smiled at her. 

I love these two together. They are both on their own journeys of healing, or trying to heal, but they recognize that being together quiets the raging storms in their minds. Gah! So many emotions in this book! I was in a constant state of blubberiness! One moment I'm all like...yay! It's sexy times with the rockstar! And then I was a hot mess because I spent time "inside" Elliott's head! I loved every moment of happiness and sadness. The raw truth in this book will bring you to your knees. You just have to be brave enough to go on the journey.

I love that we get to visit with the whole band in each of these books. And in true Scarlett Cole fashion, she's already pulling you in with little glimpses of storylines to come. She has a knack for torturing her readers with snippets of upcoming books. And the crazy thing is, I love it! I'm like a damn junkie! 

It's difficult for me to list all the reasons why I adore this book. I can't tell Elliott's story. It would feel like a betrayal to not let him tell it. One thing I can say for sure is that Scarlett Cole can write a story unlike anything I've ever read. She will drag you in and keep you turning the pages until the very end. You'll feel like you've been pulled through the mud by the end of it all, but it'll be worth it. If you're anything like me you'll curse her for the emotional upheaval, and praise her because you wouldn't have it any other way!

This book could be read as a stand alone, but I really REALLY think you should start with book #1, Jordan Reclaimed. You'll be happy you did!

About Scarlett Cole

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.
