    NOW LIVE!Amazon US * Amazon UKNikan Rebuilt just solidified the reason that I love this author so much. Scarlett Cole took a situation that would normally have me ready to One-Star a book and turned it into an amazing story while redeeming a character in my eyes. Nikan and Jenny's past nearly broke them but when they come into each others lives again they're able to rebuild that connection they had as teenagers. I really liked that Jenny did not ...

    Title: Nikan RebuiltSeries: Preload #3Author: Scarlett ColeRelease date: January 2, 2018Cliffhanger:No HEA(view spoiler)[Yes (hide spoiler)]Every part of her was mentally screaming to not let Nik back into her life— except one. Her heart remembered the reason why he’d once been her world.This book is essentially a second chance rockstar romance, but the heroine's background set it apart from many other similar stories in the subgenre. Her ch...

    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 t...

    *ARC provided by the author for an honest review*What a book I luvd it so much. I have been dying for this book. I had so many question about Jenny and what happened between her and Nikan. Jenny seemed to have a strong bond with all the boys in the band. They had a lot of history together and hearbreak. Things weren't goin to be easy now that she was moving to where it all begin. Nikan is a great guy and is now my favourite guy from this series....

    4.5 emotional, second-chance starsI have eagerly read all of Scarlett Cole’s books, and I know that she can bring the feels, but OMG, she really brought the feels with this one, and I loved it! A gorgeously emotional second-chance-romance between fascinatingly complicated Nikan and his first love, Jenny, and the story of a man who is struggling to figure out who he is. It’s a beautifully written book that I couldn’t put down, and I absolute...

    I could not be any more in love with the guys from Preload! Each one I have loved more than the one before, and Nikan definitely holds the lead!Years ago, Nikan and Jenny were everything to each other. Unfortunately, a quick thrust into stardom as well as life’s struggles, began to batter at Nikan and he made a decision and action that devastated Jenny and tore their relationship to shreds. Jenny’s history is steeped in darkness coated with m...

    3.5 “Second Chances” StarsARC via NetGalleyThank you, Swerve!I’ve been following this series from the very first book, so I was obviously excited to get my hands on Nikan’s story.While I have to say Lennon’s book is the one I’m most anxious about, I had a good time reading Nikan Rebuilt. It was a little different than what I expected, and maybe lower on the suspense and angst vibe than the previous titles in the series, but it was a p...

    I swear Scarlett Cole is going to literally kill me one of these days. How she can pull you into her character's fictional world, and make you believe it's real? It's unbelievable. And yet she manages to do it. Every. Single. Time.I'll be honest, I went into this a little wary simply because I knew going in it was a second chance romance. And usually as the norm goes with that trope, the hero for the most part manages to screw up a good thing. An...

    4.5 starsI’m going to start this review by saying that Scarlett Cole was a new to me author in 2017 and one of the high points of that year for me author wise. Anyone that follows my reviews knows I’m a sucker for musician/rock star romances so I jumped at the chance to review the Preload series and I was not disappointed. Ms. Cole has a knack for taking characters that are broken and helping them grow, accept, and understand that even though...

    I wanted to start my reading year of 2018 with a bang. I was reading a different book and while I was enjoying it well enough it didn’t have the wow factor I was looking for. So when I got notice this book had downloaded, I put the other book aside and picked this one right away. Based on how much I enjoyed the first two books in this series, I thought Nikan Rebuilt would be a winner. And boy was it ever.This is a second chance at love story. N...

    From the first glimpse I got at these special guys they were always dear to my heart. I remember when they were introduced as secondary characters in this authors previous series and I also remember almost begging Ms. Cole to write a series for them because I felt they wanted their story to be told. They were to big to remain in the shadows. And it feels like we were on the same page when it came to each and every one of the characters …. Espec...

    Totally my fault for reading a book about cheating....THERE WAS BARELY ANY GROVELLING!!!😤😤😤So I haven't read the series so I didn't know much and I was lost, IMO read the first two books... Things I hated:SHE WAS NEVER ANGRY, sure sad and bitter(*just a warning* I did skip some pages but I'm pretty sure I did not miss anything about her getting angry).... but literally there was no 'confrontation'. The H made a good sob fest about his ch...

    This book was a second chance lovers dream. If you are like me and love to see old wounds slowly heal and for all the pain that two lost loves hide away come to the surface and boil over before healing and learning to love again, then you are in for a treat!Nikan and Jenny had a love for the ages when they were both in foster homes. They lived the hardest lives possible before they were even grown but it was going to be okay because they had each...

    I don't understand the hype with this book because I think it's terrible and disappointing from start to finish. I have a knack of choosing cheating books, I swear. Few hours after reading one of the worst books yet, I went into this one completely blind.Honestly I don't get why cheating is always justified and romanticized when the perp is the Hero. I've been reading for years and and not once have I ever read a book where Hero's infidelity is d...

    ***AVAILABLE NOW - FULL REVIEW***4.5 CROWNSThe Preload men and their family honestly break my heart and fill it with immeasurable hope. I don’t know how Scarlett Cole gets me to feel both at the same time but she does, and I can’t get enough.The character of Nikan gives this book a different feel from the first two. The overall tone of the book is calmer, less tumultuous, because of all the men in this band, Nik has been the voice of reason. ...

    "Are we trying to make something from the pieces of us?" Oh my, what these broken boys do to me... I knew going in they were going to break my heart. Being raised in a group home meant that they had a rough start in life, but finding each other guaranteed they had a family for life. But just because they had each other's back didn't mean that their pain is erased. They all have demons chasing them into adulthood and need a strong supportive woman...

    Nikan Rebuilt, a second chance romance. I like the concept behind this series. 4 guys who all grew up in a group home, they form a band and stardom finds them. Each band member has a story of their own and this is Nik and Jenny's. Jenny and Nik were teenage sweethearts, first loves, with hopes and dreams involving each other. When Nik goes on his first tour and Jenny stays behind to continue her education she supports him and awaits his return bu...

    I've read every book in the Preload series, and each one has been phenomenal. Romance at its best. And Nikan Rebuilt is another wonderful addition to the series that's probably going to have me crying into a glass of wine when it ends. Scarlett Cole has this ability to pack so much emotion into her books that it's like having your breath snatched away in a wind tunnel. In the best way, of course. Nikan Rebuilt is no different on that front. I hav...

    Raw and stripped bare is how I felt after reading this story. The latest book in the series is the most intense story of all the three books.From the previous books, we got to know that Nikan had cheated on Jenny. I could guess it wasn't a simple story but the way the author peeled the layers of H/h and what went on in their lives and state of mind is a masterpiece. Giving the characters a f*cked up backstory is easy but making them shine while b...

    ***5 ‘Demovation’ Stars*** I was all kinds of excited to get my hands on this book and I knew that once I started it there was a huge chance that I wouldn’t be able to put it down. So, I waited for the perfect time to start it, which of course never came because life always gets in the way, and finally decided to just ‘do it’ and about 2 - 2.5 hrs later I was done. I DEVOURED this baby. I knew I had things to do (#workthingsbutshhhhdont...

    What an emotional and heart-warming story this was! I knew from the blurb that Scarlett Cole will put me through a lot of pain and tears until she puts my heart back together. This amazingly talented author knows how to tell a great story. She puts so much love and devotion into her books - you can feel it on every page. I'm a fan of her poignant writing and her loveable characters that despite their little flaws are loveable and easy to relate t...

    Scarlett Cole has managed to top herself once again. Each book in this series continues to get better. Her writing is vivid, engaging, thoughtful, and visceral. The characters are genuine and flawed in the most beautiful and tragic ways. She sweeps her readers into the story from the first sentence. Constantly building imagery and connection until the last word is read. I couldn't put this book down. I HAD to know Nikan and Jenny's story. Nikan i...

Now they’re older, have their own home and have been very successful. However, the reasons for them living in the group home, their backgrounds and what happened to them all have impacted on how they relate to each other and to others. This story has Nikan as the focus. He’s the ...

    Nikan Rebuilt is not just another rock ‘n roll romance. It’s so much better. It’s written better, the background is developed better, the story is better, and it’s just plain more interesting. The most surprising aspect of the novel was how Cole dealt with the racist elements. The issues were handled tactfully and with obvious respect. It piqued my interest in the First Nation issues in Canada. I loved Nikan. Although he was going through...

    What an emotional read. I haven’t read this author in awhile and I don’t know why. I love her story telling, it is always so real, deep, emotional, sexy, gripping, and loving. She really blows my socks off. I read it till it was done. I couldn’t put it down.Both characters went through so much in their young lives. So heartbreaking. It is amazing that they came through it all as well as they did. The sex was hot...panty melting hot! Nik was...
