Blog Tour! Firefly By Molly McAdams

“I’m wrecked, ruined, destroyed, and in awe.” – #1 New York Times bestselling author, Rachel Van Dyken

The next captivating installment in New York Times bestselling author Molly McAdams’s Redemption series.
As the Princess of the Irish-American Mob, there’s no shortage of men ready to help guard and protect me. To slowly suffocate me to the point of seeking freedom—a place where I can breathe.
Kieran Hayes has been saving me for as long as I can remember. It’s in his blood, and one of the many reasons I fell in love with him. Until my favorite trait became his biggest flaw, making me resent the man I love. An unwavering warrior, his love for me has been shrouded by those instincts.
Save Lily. Protect Lily. Hide Lily. Cage Lily.
What I wasn’t prepared for was Dare—the man who would set my world on fire with just one touch. He saw straight through to my soul, as though he knew I was desperate for freedom, and silently demanded my heart from the beginning.
And I didn’t expect Dare to be Demitri Borello—the reason for so many deaths in my family. A man who will take my life the moment he finds out who I am.
Despite it all, I’ll love him until that moment comes.
A fire will die if there is no oxygen for it to consume. Ours is rapidly stealing every last breath we can sacrifice to it.
***The Redemption series is a series of romantic suspense standalones***

It’s been a while since I have read a book by Molly McAdams and I had forgotten how beautifully she can break your heart and soul only to repair them one again.  Firefly is the second book in the series and can be read as a standalone.  I didn’t want to put this one down.  What if your enemy is the one you fall in love with, what if the one you used to love ends up pushing you away while trying to protect you and what if the person you vowed revenge again ends up owning your soul?  You get all of these scenarios in Firefly as well as so very much more.

Lily aka Elle is the dead but living Irish mob Princess, but is she really living if she is being kept hidden by the one who swore to protect her?  My heart broke for Lily throughout the book, it broke when she couldn’t deny her feelings any longer, it broke when she was torn, it broke when she realized who Dare was to her and her family and it broke once more when the truth and pain she kept hidden came out into the open.

Kieran was the one she had loved for all her life, it hurt when you read their interactions because you know that deep below the darkness in him that Lily is his life but his actions or lack thereof are what has pushed her away.  I wanted to more about him, I wanted his POV I wanted to see some emotions beyond the ones he buried deep inside. 

Dare had vowed revenge, but he didn’t know that his firefly would change his life the way she did, she was the light in his darkness, the good to his bad, the forbidden, and the one he couldn’t let go of.  I was terrified more than once that when he learned who Elle really was that there would be heartbreak and there was, my heart felt like it was being shredded, now does it get to be repaired?  Well that is something you will have to find out for yourself because revenge and pain can destroy the good things in life and it can end happiness in an instant but can it also mean letting it all go?

Firefly reminded me why I love this author even after she has ripped my heart out more than once and left me crying for days.  I can easily recommend Firefly and when you start to read it make sure you have nothing else planned because once you start reading you won’t want to stop until the very end and even then you will continue to crave more. I hope we get books for the other characters we were introduced to in Firefly. I can’t wait to read more in this series as well as more from Ms. McAdams because Firefly renewed my love for this author once more.

“Nothing’s getting past me,” I assured her.
Her breath washed over my lips as I leaned in to kiss her again when she whispered, “I thought we were talking about you.”
I paused for a few seconds, then looked up into her hazel eyes. “What?”
“I think I’m in danger from you.”
My brow pulled tight, and I forced out a low, frustrated laugh. “Me.”
She nodded again, the movement of her head so slow as her eyes explored mine. “I need you to let me go for so many reasons, but I easily forget why when you don’t. I think there was a reason neither of us crossed that invisible barrier before today. Because being in your arms?” She hesitated, her tongue quickly darting out to wet her lips. “Trust me, it’s dangerous.”
A weight pressed down on my chest, making it hard to breathe. Because damn it if she wasn’t right.
There were dozens of girls over the years who’d meant nothing more than a night. Maybe two. Not one could I remember the name of, most I couldn’t remember their face.
Then there’d been one who I would’ve sold my soul for if I could’ve had one more night with her.
My days with her had been everything. A slow burn that had built over time until I hadn’t been able to get enough of her. Until she’d meant too much.
And there hadn’t been a girl since.
Not a second glance. Not a thought. Nothing.
Until one morning at Brooks a few years ago.
But there was nothing slow about the thoughts and needs for the girl pressed against me. There hadn’t been since the very first morning I’d found her staring at a mirror like it had the power to destroy her world. Like that possibility fascinated her.
Fuck, if I didn’t need to find out why.
Dangerous was exactly what we were. Only she had no idea just how much.
My gut twisted as unwanted thoughts entered my mind, but I pushed them away. Because I knew what I needed to do. I needed to let her go and force myself not to follow.
But when there’s a flicker of light in your life after so much darkness, it’s impossible to stay away.
And this girl burned so damn bright.
Calling to me and beckoning me toward her, and I knew no matter how many times I let her slip away, I would follow her just to catch her again.
I brushed my thumb across her full lips. “Goddamn firefly.”

A powerhouse romantic suspense that will have you questioning your morals and second guessing your view on love.

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.
