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?

 My Review:

This is the second story in this Preload series and is such an emotional roller coaster ride – simply superb, though it deals with many disturbing issues so should, perhaps, come with a warning for anyone to whom such things may be triggers. Without giving too many spoilers away, this story involves physical, emotional and sexual abuse of children, arson and pyromania.

The members of the group Preload met whilst staying in a foster home and it is there that they became a family. The lady running the home encouraged them to play music and now they’re a highly successful group. However, each member has his own particular demon from their past that affects how they behave and relate to others. The first story was Jordan Reclaimed and I loved that so I jumped at reading this sequel! 

This time Elliott Dawson is the member of the group who is the focus for this story. He reluctantly visits a hospital for sick children and it is a visit that will change his life. Whilst there he meets fourteen year old Daniel Walker who has suffered extensive burns after setting his home on fire. His mother, Kendalee Walker, is desperately trying to remain positive for her son, despite the fact that they are now homeless and so many traumatic events have happened to her during the last year. Elliott’s nickname is ‘Pyro’ and his trigger is also fire. Daniel is a big fan of Preload and instantly connects with Elliott but the events in Daniel’s life also act as a trigger for Elliott. When Kendalee comes in to visit, the attraction between them flares. However, she’s a decade older than him, still married, homeless and has to continue to support Daniel. Whilst facing so many problems in her life can she give Elliott a chance? Can Elliott overcome his fears and temptations to find the family he really wants?

This truly is an emotional roller coaster with so many issues, twists and turns, you’re never quite sure what will be around the next corner. It is an emotive read, a story of a journey from very dark places, overcoming so many things along the way, on the road to a much happier and loving future. It was great to learn more about other members of the band and to travel with Elliott, Kendalee and Daniel as they explored their relationships and helped each other along the way. This is a very moving story and I can’t wait to read more about other members of Preload in future!

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.

Many thanks to Barclay PR for organising this tour and providing materials for this post. The review, however, is my personal, honest opinion after reading the novel.
