Lyric by Molly McAdams Review

Smooches

Synopsis

I’m not the kind of girl you forget.

I wish I was.

I wish I was normal.

That I could blend into a crowd. Have a future with the man I’ve loved my entire life . . .
Maxon James understands me in a way others can’t.

For as long as I can remember, he’s vowed that one day he would claim my wild, rebel heart. God knows I wanted him to try. I wanted the life he promised me in his lyrics.

But his assurances couldn’t change the past, and the infamous mafia blood in my veins guarantees my heart can’t be claimed.

Somewhere along the way, I slipped. I let myself believe we could have it all. Now a dark, menacing shadow hovers between us, mocking us for daring to hope for a normal future.

And it’s come to collect on a blood oath.

My name’s Elizabeth Borello—Libby for short. Don’t worry about forgetting it . . . He hasn’t.

Review

Libby and Mason have known each other for a long time and for a while now they have had an understanding- when Mason is in town they hook up and then move on. But that hasn’t stopped Libby nor Mason from falling for each other. Mason is back in town and for good and he is determined to make Libby his once and for all. But Libby’s life isn’t exactly safe and she will do everything she can including sacrificing her happiness to keep Mason safe. But he isn’t about to stand down and let that happen…no matter the danger Mason isn’t going to stop until he has the girl he loves by his side.

“I’ve poured out my goddamn heart to you in every song, Libby. I’ve never hidden anything from you. I’ve loved you and worshipped you and been so damn transparent every step of the way.”

Molly McAdams is back with a bang! I absolutely adore her Redemption series and when I found out this was a spin off I couldn’t wait to dive in and it did not disappoint. Molly McAdams is the Queen of romantic suspense and the hot and dangerous couples she creates – the plot keeps you hooked from page one and the couples chemistry melts off the pages. Once again the perfect combination for a 5 star read!

“This time those simple, innocent words had frozen fingers gripping my spine, and left me cold the rest of the night. Because they sounded like a dark promise.”

Maxon and Libby were just perfect characters to be enthralled with. Maxon’s determination and love for Libby was beyond perfect; no matter how many times Libby tried to put up walls, Maxon was determined to knock them down. He was never going to give up and I just fell completely for him. Libby was one strong woman- having so much to deal with and still stay standing. I admired that she wanted to protect Maxon from her family and way of life but I also desperately wanted her to let Maxon in as I knew he would want to protect her just as much as she was protecting him. Their chemistry and connection was endearing and sweet, hot and dangerous and light and dark. I couldn’t get enough of either of them and I have to say I think they are one of my favourite couples so far this year.

“Your heartbeat will always be my favorite song,” I whispered against her shoulder, then slipped out of bed.”

I didn’t expect anything less than complete on the edge of your seat reading with the plot and that’s exactly what I got. After reading the Redemption series I knew I was going to be in for one hell of rollercoaster ride when it came to what Molly would put these characters through. Straight away I was desperate to know who “him” was – such a dark and sinister presence which had me guessing and kept me hooked; I won’t give anything away but as always with Molly we have plenty of twists and turns to throw us off! We always have the intense romance but it’s also a mob story, a rockstar story and a danger story all rolled into one to create something that is full of drama, love, sadness, suspense, passion and danger.
