Book Review: Lennon Reborn

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.**

Here I thought that Nic's story in Nikan Rebuilt was a fantastic story but Lennon's had me in tears a couple times.  Just the thought that such an accomplished man would have such deep insecurities because of his childhood was very sad and deeply troubling. And the way that Ms. Cole brings us, the readers, so close to his soul is just another reason that she is now one of my favorite authors.

Actually Georgia, Gia, also suffers from another form of child abuse even though she is at the top of her game which just goes to show that abuse comes in many forms.  Now before you start to think that this book just shows the darker sides of our natures, let me assure you that there is also love, caring and deep friendships such as between Lennon and his 'brothers'.  This book shows that no matter how broken you feel, there is someone out there for you be it a lover or a friend.  You just have to let them in so that they can get to know you.

LENNON REBORN isn't a book that I would recommend for all readers as it does deal with some dark themes (there is plenty of hot sex) but it is a fantastic book that really shows how love can heal.  Oh and you get a chance to check back in  on Nic and Jenny.
