Product Description

He's a rocker, she's a ballerina, they're worlds apart yet just what the other needs. From Scarlett Cole comes Jordan Reclaimed, the first emotional standalone romance that takes readers into the the band Preload.

Jordan Steele’s life began when he was ten. When he was taken from his parents and a house that was never a home. When he met his brothers, the other lost and abandoned boys in his group home. When he learned what friendship and family and love looked like.

Now he’s made good, touring the world with the band he and his brothers formed in that crowded group home. No one but his found family really knows the man under the fame and fortune, the scars he hides behind the rockstar lifestyle. Until he sees her through the windows of the National Ballet, dancing, and suddenly the world doesn’t seem so dark.

Aleksandra Artemov ticks all the ballet boxes. Father a legendary Kirov dancer. Check. Prepping since birth for classical ballet. Check. Compulsive control over the food she eats. Check. Principal dancer at The National Ballet of Canada. Check. But what she craves is freedom.

She craves Jordan.

Everything about him should terrify her. His size, his tattoos, his edge. But he doesn’t. He stirs her very soul. Jordan has nothing but himself to offer her, and he's never been good enough for anyone. Can he figure out how to face his own demons before he loses his light for good?

Another 5 star read by one of my favourite authors Scarlett Cole. Didn't think I could love a group of men and their ladies as much as the Second Circle gang but the Preload boys are forming a place in my heart for sure!. I absolutely fell head over heels in love with tortured soul Jordan and his beautiful ballerina Lexi. With both having a difficult childhood, together they help each other while falling in love. Cannot wait to read more about the Preload boys!

I have been a big fan of Scarlett Coles's since I first discovered her Second Circle Tattoo Series and it was in this series that we were first introduced to Jordan. This book will break your heart into a million pieces as you learn the extent of what Jordan suffered. As you ride the roller coaster of emotions with Jordan and his ballerina you will not only learn what a huge heart he has but his growth and strength will mend your heart and soul. This would have to be one of the most beautiful stories I have read in a long time and deserves far more than the five stars I can rate it.

Jordan Steele was almost destroyed by his biological family but with love of the brothers he chose in his group home he has reached astronomical levels of success in the world famous rock band they formed, Preload. Nothing that principal ballet dancer Aleksandra Artemov has ever done meets the high standards of her father or can erase the fact that he blames her for the death of her mother. On a cold and desolate night the two have a chance encounter and are uncontrollably drawn to each other only to find they might just hold the missing pieces of each other’s shattered soul?

Yes Jordan was broken but when Scarlett Cole rebuilt him she created a masterpiece. This writer's emotional well runs deep and her portrayals are hardcore and raw. Jordan and Lexi faced overwhelming odds against them in life yet Ms. Cole managed to bring their strength to the forefront as they clawed their way to the love and goodness they deserved. Watching the leads of this work barely stumbled through life, as past and present abuses continually barraged them, was hard but in the same moment epically inspiring as this author found a way to draw strength from their despair. A romantic connection so profound that it rescued two lost souls Jordan Reclaimed was full of tears, hope and exceptional writing!

My Review:

Welcome back to the boys of Preload!!

Jordan Steele has lived what is, by any standard, a hard life. All he really remembers about his childhood is being locked in an attic out of the way of his junkie parents. He often starved, was often far too hot or cold for any level of comfort, and was frequently the target of his father’s violent outbursts. At age ten, Jordan was finally taken from the home and placed in a group home. While this may sound a bit like from the frying pan and into the fire, the group home was the best thing that had ever happened to Jordon. It was in the group home that Jordan learned about love and friendship, and found his love of music.

Fast forward . . . . . .

As an adult, Jordan still deals with the demons of his past. Those bastards are Godzilla sized and haunt nearly every aspect of his life. Jordan still sleeps in an attic, he channels his anger into his music, and he can’t sleep at night until he knows all the other members of his band, Preload are safe and secure. The thought of being separated from his bandmates (all guys from the same group home) terrifies Jordan and he just doesn’t know how to deal with the fear. Problem is, he’s going to have to figure it out soon because since Dred, the band’s lead singer is moving into a home he bought for himself, his fiancé, and infant daughter. It is with this knowledge gnawing at him that leads Jordan out into the night and to Alex.

Alex, or Aleksandra, is a ballerina with the Canadian National Ballet and is the most stunning creature Jordan has ever seen. Their first “meeting” isn’t a meeting at all, but a moment when Alex finds Jordan watching her dance through the studio window. Though neither can explain why, there is a connection made and that connection is strengthened a few days later when Jordan drops off access to music he has written specifically for Alex. For Alex’s part, Jordan is something she never expected to have. As a principal in a major ballet company, Alex spends the vast majority of her time training. She dances for hours on end every day and in her limited free time, she is abused by her father. Though Alex owns and pays for the home she shares with her father, he rules the roost with an iron fist. He is critical, unkind, controlling, and both physically and mentally abusive. Until Jordan, Alex thought there would never be an end to her situation, a possibility of a bright future where she not only makes her own decisions, but enjoys the life and gifts she’s been given.

Between Alex’s home and work situation and Jordan’s monster issues, a normal relationship just isn’t in the cards. Jordan has no idea how to be in a relationship and often falters or simply runs when Alex tries to get too close. Opening up to someone about his past is not something Jordan has ever done, but Alex makes him want to try. Alex’s own struggles begin to manifest in a very obvious way which creates even more problems for the young couple. To get to an HEA, both are going to have to accept that they can’t always control every situation and they are going to have to rely on others for help from time to time.

The Bottom Line: I am so damn excited to see this series take flight! The Preload series is a spin-off of the wildly popular (and one of my favorite!) Second Circle Tattoo series. From the beginning, Reclaiming Jordan is an angst-filled read about two totally lost souls who seemingly have it all. On the surface, both Jordan and Alex appear put together and confident, but on the inside, they are two steaming hot messes!! Because of their respective issues with abuse, it seems natural they would find and be able to understand one another far better than anyone else ever could. The road is so very rocky and sad, but in the end, they are able to find the forever kind of happiness each so desperately wants and deserves. My only complaint about this book is how abruptly it ends. Even with the epilogue, I still felt like I was missing something. For example, what happens to Alex’s dad? This didn’t keep me from enjoying the book, and this isn’t my first rodeo with Scarlett Cole. I suspect she will answer all my questions as the series moves forward. For once in my life, I’m OK with waiting 

I do this thing sometimes where I read a book that leaves me void of words but overflowing with feelings ... I say I'll review when my heart isn't so full and I can put words together. And then I try to go back days or weeks even after I've finished and I just can't. This was one of those books. I have said this many times before but let me say it again for those of you in the back ... Scarlett Cole is a force to be reckoned with. Her words are flawless. Her stories are powerful. She isn't going places anymore ... she came and she conquered and she is here to stay!! okay, so I might be a fan :) lol

We first met Jordan Steel in The Purest Hook (Second Circle Tattoos, #3) and altho this book can be read on its own, you get a fuller picture of not only Jordan, but the rest of the band as well if you read it first ... in my opinion :) (and you know, it's a ridiculously awesome book so why would you want to miss it?!) Jordan has serious separation anxiety. You will learn in this book that all the members of Preload have a shattered background and together they came out on the other side winners but not without some side effects. That's all I really want to mention about that because you need to read the book yourself and experience the depth of emotion in the story without prejudice. You just have to trust me that these men lifted themselves out of darkness and into the light but the light still has shadows.

Aleksandra Artemov is a famous dancer. This is what she has done since birth. It is her life. It encompasses everything she is ... but it kinda isn't. She is trapped. She is trapped in a reality that even I cannot fathom. Her love of dance is now overshadowed by the constant demands on her to do better and be better. She is strong and passionate and has such a beautiful soul. I was in awe of her.

Jordan and Lexi are two puzzle pieces that clicked together the moment they set eyes on each other. They connected on a level much deeper than mere sight. Their souls spoke to one another. They were meant to journey into the future together. Scarlett Cole created two characters in Jordan and Lexi that could not be better suited. It was kismet. They each had inside what the other needed to chase the shadows. Their journey was inspiring and heart-breaking and freeing and oh so intense. It was pure and it was phenomenal.

I could go on and on about this story but I need to stop because the feelings this story brought out in me are still very raw. And I don't think that will ever go away. That is the power Scarlett Cole has with her words. They stay with you. Forever. So do yourselves a favor and invest the time in her stories. #TRUST

Series: Preload #1
Warning: Past Abuse

--One Sentence Summary--
Can a rock star with a whole host of problems, find peace with a ballerina who is the light to his dark?

--What are the Issues--
Jordan has had a very rough upbringing and he needs to know his bandmates are safe and always there for him. Because of this, the band all lives together, except Dred who is in the process of moving out to be with his fiancee and baby. Jordan has kept himself isolated from everyone except his bandmates and he believes that his soul is too dark and dirty for someone as pure as Lexi. Aleksandra has done everything her father has ever asked of her, but it’s beginning to wear on her. She wants to do more contemporary ballet but her father’s constant guilt trips and controlling attitude make it hard to venture outside his shadow. Not only that, but Lexi is becoming overly concerned with her weight and how it might be affecting her career.

--What I Liked and Didn’t Liked--
Overall Romance -- Scarlett Cole always does a great job writing a very emotional and character driven romance and that’s evident in this book as well. Both Jordan and Lexi feel things very deeply and their backgrounds and current issues create drama in their relationship. However, when I say drama I only mean the best kind. I never found myself annoyed by the drama that was going on. This romance is mostly about the characters getting out of their own way; most of the conflict comes from within instead of outside forces like in the Second Circle Series. There are some outside factors (Lexi’s father, Dred leaving the house, etc.) but this is straight contemporary with no suspense.

Jordan’s Issues -- We learned in The Purest Hook about Jordan’s separation anxiety issues and this book goes into the reasons behind this anxiety. However, I felt like there was some missing elements to Jordan’s issues. The first look at Jordan makes his anxiety seem like a very severe issue that he will really struggle to overcome. However, he pretty quickly works through his problems after meeting Lexi. All the things that were hinted at don’t develop in the story. I kept waiting for him to be more upset over Dred leaving, or to panic more about where Lexi was when they weren't together, or to struggle more with moving from his bland, almost empty room to a "real" room. Jordan’s anxiety came across initially as something that would likely need therapy and that there were would certainly be periodic setbacks. However, once Jordan decides he wants something with Lexi he pretty much goes all in with little problem. He quickly overcomes Dred leaving the house, he gets a phone and more guitars, and moves out of the attic with very little thought. It felt like what Jordan really had was some mild anxiety and the desire to remain in his rut but we were expected to believe his issues were much greater. This is the big reason I gave this 3 stars instead of 4.

--Final Thoughts--
Overall, I was a bit disappointed in this one but I still enjoyed the romantic aspects. I’m not sure what to think about the other band members but I’ll certainly give them a try. I liked both Jordan and Lexi and I liked watching them fall in love, but I was hoping for a different type of development for Jordan.
5.0 out of 5 stars Scarlett of my favorite authors! Jordan and Lexi...their story will stay with you! 5 March 2017

Jordan and Lexi fall for each other as soon as they meet. But Jordan saw her first and watched her dance through the window of the ballet studio and thought she was the most beautiful girl he had seen and loved watching her dance. He went home and wrote music for her and left a message for her at the ballet office with the link to hear the music. That was the beginning. As the story unfolds it is beautiful to see how they relate to each other even through the issues they are hesitant to share with each other. Jordan has a terrible childhood being forced by his parents to live in the attic when he is 5 years old only to not get out until found when he is around 10 years old. He had been beaten, starved and had very little social contact. Lexi raised by her father who had a very good ballet career until he defected to the U.S and was not successful getting into a ballet company he felt worthy of him. He puts pressure on Lexi over the years and forcing her to make wrong choices for her health and dancing. It is beautiful to see how Jordan and Lexi are able to help one another and in doing so help themselves work through their issues and be together. The author doesn't hold back with the facts of abuse by parents but does show ways to obtain help. It is also touching to see how the boys in the band had become a family and live together supporting each other like none of them had before when they were young. Great story! Great author! Look forward to the next book in the series.
