My Review:

Get ready for some steamy romance in Scarlett Cole’s latest novel in the Preload series, Elliott Redeemed! Unfortunately, I have not read book 1 in the series but it absolutely did not impact my reading enjoyment 🙂

Kendalee is in her late thirties and living a life of hell. Her husband left her for a younger woman, she’s working at a grocery store, homeless and spending all of her time at the hospital with her 14-year-old son. Daniel’s life has been full of pain for the past three years and had recently shared some heartbreaking news with Kendalee before seriously acted out on his agressions. 

Elliott is in his late twenties and is the hot guitar player for the band, Preload. After a horrible childhood, Elliott has tried to come to grips with his past and his problems, yet he doesn’t fully realize how far he is from feeling whole until he goes to SickKids Hospital and meets Daniel. Soon, Elliott finds himself crazy about Daniel and wanting to help him, attracted and drawn to Kendalee, and struggling to fight his own inner demons. 

I loved Elliott!!  I cannot stress how much I loved this character, he just makes my heart swoon! On one hand he was a badass rocker, but on the other hand, he was incredible sweet, caring, intelligent, and just adorable. I wasn’t quite as crazy over Kendalee as I was Elliott, but the author still made her a unique, complex, and realistic character that was literally going through hell. There were times it appeared as if she were ready to break, but then she would come back roaring like a mama lion and I had nothing but the utmost respect for her character. Daniel was an incredible character in that there were times he perfectly captured teenaged angst, but he had some extremely honest and emotional moments that just stole the show. 

Elliott Redeemed is definitely a romance but it is also so much more. Author Scarlett Cole has packed this novel with so many different themes and experiences, making it wonderfully complex without being too heavy. The imagery and dialogue are incredible that propelled me right into the novel as if I were one of the characters. This novel said so much about family, trust, pain from our pasts, and hope for the future. I cannot recommend this one enough to lovers of contemporary romance with an edge.

He lay down on the bed and pulled her into his arms before tugging the bedding over the two of them. It was a little damp in places because of all their ice play, and he smiled at the reminder. “What I am into is finding out what the person I’m with wants to try. I’m into good old missionary on a Sunday morning when I’m hungover and just want to get off. I’m into sex in a field while hiking or on the deck of my cottage. Some days, I’m into trying a hundred different positions before getting off. I’m into cuffs and toys and exploring. I’m not into being called Sir, or hurting someone, or expecting submission. I just want to explore, and I want to find someone who wants to do that with me.”


“Hmm? What are you into?” he asked, kissing her forehead.

“It would appear to be you. I’m into you, Elliott. And missionary position. And outdoor sex. And a hundred positions. And I’d really like to figure out whether a reverse cowgirl is really a thing.”

Elliott barked out a laugh. “Reverse cowgirl?”

Kendalee chuckled. “Yeah. Like . . . your . . . you know . . . it doesn’t naturally bend that way, right?”

“Oh Lord, woman. It’s got quite the range of movement, but next up, we’re going reverse cowgirl.”

They lay in silence, and Elliott clicked off the light.


“Yeah, Lee.”

“Don’t make me fall in love with you. I’m not sure my heart is quite ready for it yet.”

His own heart skipped a beat at her declaration.

Because it meant she was thinking about it. About him, that way.

“Can’t help you with that one, honey. It’s probably the only thing I can’t do for you.”

Kendalee sighed against him, burrowing closer into his side. “Thought so.”

Elliott smiled as he closed his eyes and drifted off to sleep.

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.
