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?
Elliott might be my favorite. Of course Scarlett Cole’s books are often like that where each story makes me love that main character more than the last. Each of Scarlett Cole’s characters are amazing but flawed in a way that makes them real. Each guy isn’t Prince Charming and that’s just one of many things I love about her stories!
Elliott is the lead guitarist for Preload and has had a rough life. But he’s found ways to deal with it. Well sort of. But when he and the band are asked to appear as a Make a Wish like request. While walking the halls, Elliott wanders into Kendalee’s son’s room and they hit it off. Plus Elliott likes Kendalee.
Kendalee is a part-time grocery clerk who is now homeless and is spending all her time at the hospital with her son. Elliott walks in and besides being famous, he’s great with her son. And can get him to open up.
Another great Scarlett Cole book! I can’t wait to see whose story is next. I love these guys and their beautiful but flawed selves.
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.
