Book Review: Nikan Rebuilt

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 lead 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?

I think that it's only fair to warn everyone that I am going to gush this review.  Okay consider yourself warned.  

I think that I have found myself a new go to author in contemporary romance!  Scartlett Cole is willing to delve into dark corners and shine a spotlight on the issues with her writing.  In this book the issue was how the First Nations peoples were and still are being treated in Canada (though the way we Americans treat and have treated Native Americans here in the States is even worse).   I haven't had the opportunity to read the first two books in this series...yet.  They are now on my list.

Another thing that really impressed me was the depth of the characters.  I hadn't even read the first two books but I felt like I knew the members of Preload as well as their significant others as well as I would know a friend.  

Nic and Jenny are a wonderful main atraction.  They both had issues that they had to face and the book doesn't shy away from the emotional wounds from the past.  And the sex when it finally arrived fit into the plot rather then the plot fitting around the sex.  And it made sense!

There is a lot of cursing as well as some really hot sex in this book but if those aren't trigger points then I would highly recommend this book.  I have already set myself up on FictFact to be notified when the next book arrives.
