Book 1, A Redemption Novel
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
From New York Times bestselling author Molly McAdams comes a powerhouse romantic suspense that will have you questioning your morals and second guessing your view on love.
I live in a world few know exist. I’ve trained for this. I know what to say, what to do, and how to act. I’ve perfected the lethal calm required for this life.
Now it’s time to buy my first girl. But all it takes is one look at the brave girl who starts singing mid-auction for that calm to slip.
Briar Chapman is going to be the death of me, and I don’t care. I’ll take every day with her until that death comes, and I’ll welcome it when it does.
On the outside, Lucas Holt is what nightmares are made of. A man cloaked in darkness, with sin-filled eyes and an enticing grin. A devil so devastatingly beautiful and cruel that his very presence instills fear.
But beneath his terrifying, ever-calm exterior is an affectionate man haunted by a past that refuses to stay buried. And Lucas looks at me as though he’s finally found the only person who can make it all go away.
We’re a battle of the brightest day and the darkest night—and I want to lie in the wake of our war.
Molly McAdams Out Did Herself
I have been a fan of Molly McAdams for a few years now. I have read all of her books. When a new one comes out I'm so excited to get my hands on it.
Blackbird is not like anything Molly McAdams has written before. She covers a subject that is not often spoken about but we all know it's happening.
For the first few chapters of the book I honestly thought of the movie Kiss the Girls. Scenes from the movie kept flashing through my mind. Then as I went further into the story I stopped thinking of that movie and started really seeing these characters and their story.
Even though this book has a darker side to it. It is still a beautiful love story.
Briar has a mind set that I think most of us have which is you hear about these things happening around the world and you think oh that will never happen to me. Then it does happen to Briar. And she is in for a world wind of what to do and how to survive. And she also starts discovering who she is in the midst of it all.
Lucas is dark and scary and yet there is something about him that you are drawn to from the moment you meet him.
This is definitely a piece of work you do not want to miss from Molly McAdams! I'm thrilled for more of this series. This is a side of Molly we haven't seen and it just goes to show she can probably write just about anything and it still be amazing and captures her fans and I'm sure this book will bring in a new set of fans as well.
A MUST READ!!!!
I finished this book days ago and I still can't get it out of my head. And I still have no clue how to review it. I don't think my words will be enough.
We all know what to expect from a Molly McAdams read. Ugly cries, broken hearts, anger and then for the most part she will piece us back together word by beautiful word. But then she goes and gives us this! What the H*LL just happened?!?!?!
BLACKBIRD is so different then anything she has written thus far. And I think it is some of her best work yet!! (And trust me I know because I have read all her books) Molly still gives us the ugly cries, broken hearts and so much anger. And she will still piece you back together word by beautiful word.
This book has some dark elements and you will think WTH!! But trust me there is so much more to this story then you think. I couldn't put it down I was up until all hours into the night and early morning reading because I was on the edge of my seat wanting to know what was going to happen next. You will literally feel all the feels in this book from the hairs standing on end to the that punch to the gut in the pit of your stomach. GAH!!! I'm going to stop here before I can't stop and start giving things away. This is a MUST read!!!!
I knew there was a dark side in you Molly McAdams! Thank you for finally letting it out and giving us Briar and Lucas's story. *bows at feet*
It is scary that this does happen in our world and that it's not just in books. Be active with your children no matter what age. Know where they are, who their with and what they're doing. Open that communication and I swear they will hear you.
Not doing it for me
By the 3rd or 4th time she saw him she was attracted to him and in love with him within 2 months of him buying her. Many days during that time she never even saw him. I just didn't feel the emotion. Why did she love him? Because he was "hot"? It was really silly. The whole story was kind of rushed with no emotion. And if your looking for erotic writing don't bother reading this. That didn't seem to be important to this author.
Lastly, the whole bit about her singing, hence the title of the book. She sings one line of a Beatles song over and over. I'm being generous with 3 stars.
