JORDAN RECLAIMED by Scarlett Cole
E-Original published by Swerve
Publication Date: February 28, 2017
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?
This isn’t my first time that I’ve read an amazing story by this author. She knows how to turn the most unbelievable situations into a beautiful love story that will make you feel like you want to be a part of the main character’s life.
I’ve waited for this story to come out for so long. Since I’ve read the stories from secondary characters that appear in this book, I knew that Jordan’s life wasn’t easy or pretty. I also knew that whatever his journey in this book would be, it had to be an amazing read. And that’s exactly what it was. I wanted to know the reason for his fears and in the end I really felt for him. He craved the feeling of not being alone and he wanted to hold onto the people that he saw as his family. And then of course the unexpected happened and he met ‘his light’.
This is a story that will make your emotions come to life. It’s a beautiful journey of love, hope and how you can overcome your fears. I’m not giving away any details about how the story unfolds, since I do believe you shuld make judgements for yourself by reading the book. I did not regret reading it in any way and I’m already looking forward to this authors next book.
