Amie's Review of Lyric by Molly McAdams


A stand-alone romance novel in the Rebel series – a Redemption series spin-off

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Molly McAdams delivers the first captivating, stand-alone novel in her REDEMPTION series spin-off—the REBEL series . . . 
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. 



YES !!
 I am sure it is because I was already invested in the Redemption series BUT I could not get enough of this story !! I can't get enough of Molly's suspenseful writing. I love a dark and twisted read but I also love to get my fill of suspense with a more lighthearted feel as well. The underlying mafia aspect of this book is better understood if you have read the Redemption books BUT since this is Maxon and Libby's story you get enough info about her life that you can make the connection. The amount of characters may be hard to focus on and since they all seem to have a story as well you can't help but want to know them. Because of that it may be overwhelming to read as a standalone/spin off. 

Libby has been in love with Maxon as long as she can remember. They come from the same town and although he knows a bit about her family history he doesn't know enough to have ever been worried or put off. He comes back at the end of every tour and finds her waiting for him. They get lost in each other and although the love is there she never makes any effort in taking it further. Something in her past keeps her from dragging Maxon into the web of secrets. This last time she tried to cut him off for good but he is relentless and not having that. So now with Maxon home again for the long haul we find things heating up and getting dangerous. Who is behind the threats and how will Libby keep herself , Maxon and her family/friends safe ? Certainly a rollercoaster of emotion and suspense. I can't wait to see what comes next for this spin off series !!

Molly grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband, daughter, and fur babies. When she's not diving into the world of her characters, some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling, and long walks on the beach … which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies and fried pickles, and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm ... or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren't really happening.
