Review - THE PUREST HOOK by Scarlett Cole

Can a love built on secrets survive?

Rugged, hot, and rock hard, Dred Zander is exactly the type of man that normally sends Pixie running. Not dreaming about running her hands down his washboard abs...and lower. The lead singer and guitarist for the band Preload embodies trouble behind his quick smile and guarded eyes, and Pixie left trouble behind her years ago along with the name Sarah Jane Travers and the pathetic trailer her mom called home. With her abusive past in her past, she has a new life, a new family at Second Circle, and a dream of opening her own business. She needs capital and time. What she doesn't need is a tempting long-haired rocker or the paparazzi that follow him around.

But Dred has other ideas. Pixie's sweet hazel eyes, purple hair and kaleidoscopic tattoo of exotic flowers that swirl up her arm haunt his dreams, and he knows she wants him too. He just has to convince her. But as a juicy exposé threatens to expose their pasts, and a blackmailer terrorizes their present, Pixie and Dred have to decide what really matters and fight like hell to keep it.

4 of 5 stars

On the streets with nowhere to go is where Trent and Cujo found Pixie. A young girl running from a tortured past and a drug addiction. With very little questions asked they welcomed her into their lives and treated her like family. After many years of being clean, Pixie was getting her life in order. She worked full time at the Tattoo studio and started making party dresses for little girls.

Dred Zander is the lead singer and guitarist of the rock band Preload. While co-hosting a TV series with Trent , he is introduced to Pixie. There is something about Pixie that excites Dred. He is not a relationship guy, however the feeling he gets when he is around Pixie has him questioning his reason for that. Asking Pixie out on a date whenever he was in town became a quest for him. He was sure at some point she would say yes. While visiting California Dred comes down with the flu. Pixie rushes to care for him and in turn becomes sick herself. When Dred repays the favor of caring for her, Pixie’s feelings for him start to blossom. Pixie finally agrees to meet Dred in Toronto where he lives with the rest of his band.

Many secrets lie in Pixie and Dred’s past that neither of them are ready to share. As they break down each other’s walls they learn that the need to be with each other is greater than the need to hide what has happened to them in the past. After a surprise from someone in Dred’s past and a blackmailing attempt by Pixie’s step dad all secret are revealed. Though it is hard Pixie and Dred decide that they can put the past behind them to ensure a wonderful future together.
