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.**
If you’ve been reading the Preload series you know that all of the guys in the band grew up in a group home together, but before they all became family they each had horrible childhoods. Lennon’s was no different and it broke my heart to read about what he went through as a child.
Because of his childhood he holds himself away from his band mates. He feels like he’s just an extra and not really part of it all. When he is injured in a tragic accident in New York while on the tour bus, he wants to just give up and die. Luckily he is saved in more ways than one by Georgia. She is there at Lennon’s time of need in lots of different ways and I loved her for it. Georgia stayed with Lennon and figured him out pretty quickly. She didn’t give up on him and in the end it payed off for her. It payed off for Lennon as well as he began to see what a vital part he was of Preload as a band mat,e but more importantly in the personal lives of the band members.
The story was horrifying at times but filled with so much love and hope. I’ll admit I’m sad that this series is ending. As horrible as it was to read about the Preload issues, I think that Cole did an excellent job of bringing them to a place where they could love and be loved. Her heroes and heroines are smart and strong in their own ways and I truly enjoyed the whole series.
