Book 3, Preload
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
From the queen of heart-pounding, sexy, emotional romance Scarlett Cole comes Nikan Rebuilt, the next novel in the Preload series.
Does the past ever really stay in the past?
Nikan can never be complete. He's got a rock group made up of the family he built for himself, more money than he knows what to do with, and a stream of groupies falling over themselves to date him. But none of them are her. The one regret that still plagues him, still taunts him with what he could have had.
Jenny is a survivor. Now running a group home after overcoming life in a cult led by her manipulative father and watching her mother drink the poison he fed his followers, she fights to keep the light in the eyes of every boy who walks through her doors. Far from simple young love, Nik taught her to trust, showed her how good life could be. Before he formed the band. Before he became a famous rockstar. Before he destroyed it all.
A chance meeting after years of no contact shows the connection still blazes between them. But will they have their second chance at love? Or will the weight of their past crush their future together?
Nikan Rebuilt is the perfect title for this story. We got to see Nikan basically stripped down and built back up.
Nikan and Jenny met when they were kids, both struggling with traumatic pasts. They’ve been through many of their first experiences together. When Nikan’s band finally gets noticed and they go on their first tour, he did the unthinkable. When Jenny finds out, she left and never looked back.
Eight years later, Jenny moves back to town and takes a temp job at the group home Nikan came from. She knew their was a chance she would run into him again but it was still a shock when he shows up at the home with one of the boys. Nikan has never been able to get over Jenny. When he sees her again, he’s determined to win her back no matter what he has to do.
This is probably one of the best grovel books I’ve read. First, let me just say that I detest cheating in romance books. I struggled with what Nikan did to Jenny. I struggled because the author did such a good job of showing the man Nikan became. How much he grew and how much he regretted what he did. And most importantly, how much he truly loves Jenny.
It’s rare for me to give a book with cheating a chance. The fact that the author could have me fall for Nikan despite it and root for him is pretty amazing. And these boys in the group home just melts my heart! I love that they’ve been a big part of this series. I’m looking forward to Lennon’s story. Arc provided by NetGalley.
I honestly could gush for days about how fantastic I think this book and series are. All I will add is that if you haven't started reading every Scarlett Cole book yet....get to it. You will be so happy you did. Since first discovering her I have anxiously awaited every new release and Nikan's story is the latest. All these characters are beautifully flawed and their stories will rip all the emotions straight from your heart. Nikan and Jenny are so accepting of one another and their story is beautiful even with their struggles. This one should top everyone's must read list! I highly recommend it.
Loved Nikan!! 5 stars!!!
I love a good second chance romance and Scarlett Cole delivers with Nikan! I have been anxiously anticipating his story ever since she introduced the band in her other series. I mean a hot, sexy Rockstar, what's not to love!
Nikan and Jenny meet as kids in foster care and fall in love. Unfortunately it is not a fairytale ending because love isn't always enough. My heart broke for both Nikan and Jenny, their story back to each other is not easy. Nikan has a lot of demons to deal with and he handled it badly. Jenny is a strong independent woman and I love how she doesn't make excuses for Nikan. Ms. Cole weaves an emotional story that made me cry and swoon and laugh. And of course her sexy times are HOT! Her secondary characters and the relationships between the guys in Preload just add to this incredible book. What a heartfelt journey of redemption, forgiveness and second chances. Another beautiful story from Scarlett Cole.
