Lennon Reborn by Scarlett Cole
Publisher: Swerve (May 1, 2018)
Series: Preload, 4
Genre: Contemporary Romance

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.**

Pat's Review:

The Preload Series follows four foster brothers who were tossed about in the system until they all landed in a group home run by a woman of intelligence, caring and patience. She encouraged them all to pursue their interests and provided them instruments to play. Those young boys grew up to be grown men and the stars of Preload, a rock/heavy metal band. Their concerts are sold out within minutes, and they are at the top of the charts. As far as they are concerned they are brothers, except in blood.

This novel revolves around Lennon McCartney, Preloads very talented drummer. He has very low self worth, and can’t imagine life without his brothers. He’s worried that the band has decided to take a break from touring. Dred, Jordan and Nikan have found love and are starting families. Maybe they would decide to disband -- where would his life be then? Then a terrible accident on a snow covered street changes all of their lives.

Dr. Georgia Starr is a brilliant pediatric neurosurgeon, but no matter what she does, she never lives up to her father’s expectations. He even criticizes her regarding some of her surgeries. Georgia just happens to be behind the bus when it crashes. She immediately started triaging, deciding who needed critical care immediately. She spent time with Lennon and as injured as he is, she wants to know more. So she seeks him out at the hospital. Suddenly the difficulties with her father don’t seem important. Georgia wants to do whatever she can to convince Lennon he has a life worth living.

I have read all of Ms. Cole’s books, but never before have I spent the first three chapters crying! It’s heart wrenching, romantic and very satisfying. A wonderful way to end this excellent series, but I hope we can take a peek back at this group at some point.
