Reese's Review:I cannot get enough of Scarlett Cole’s books. Honestly, I cannot. She is amazing and I have been so excited to dive into Preload since The Purest Hook.
Elliott is in the band Preload with his best friends and foster brothers. Each brother has their own emotional scarring that keeps them from having normal, healthy relationships outside of each other. Elliott has a fire problem in that he craves burning things to make him feel better. Then he meets Kendalee and her son Daniel who reminds him so much of himself he becomes a little scared. I loved how Elliott struggled with wanting to be better for Kendalee and Daniel, but at the same time recognized that he was also having issues as well. Elliott was a great character to read about. He’s very caring and loving of his brothers and has so much love to give to everyone he meets.
Kendalee has had a very bad year. Her husband left her for another woman and left her with no money. Also, now her 14-year-old son is in the hospital for burning the house down. She’s broke, working full time, and trying to take care of her son. Kendalee was a kick butt character. She stands up for her son no matter what and does everything she can to provide for him. When she meets Elliott she knows she’s too old, but they have an instant connection that had me swooning. I like how Kendalee came to understand what was missing for her in her relationship with her husband and didn’t settle for anything less than what she needed.
The best aspects of this book to me was that the characters sought to better themselves for themselves. I loved that. They started wanting to be better for someone else and then realized that isn’t enough. Seriously that was beyond amazing to read. It shows that while someone may help you realize you want to be better, you can only be better truly for yourself if you want to.
The other aspect of this book I loved was how there was no big fight. There was no “leave me alone” moment or a time when they broke up. I liked that since it wasn’t the predictable route.
Elliott Redeemed is an amazing story of romance and self-discovery. You couldn’t find two more deserving people in need of love. It was also amazing to see the other characters whom I’ve grown so attached to. Definitely, can’t want to find out how the rest of the boys get love and what their demons are.

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.
“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.
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.
