LIVE – LYRIC by Molly McAdams

Lyric

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.

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.

EXCERPT:

“Happy birthday, Low. I waited for you.”

The instant his voice filtered through the phone, my body stilled and warmed at the same time. My breath came out in a soft, audible huff, and my eyes shut as hundreds of welcome memories flooded my mind.

I didn’t have to look at the screen to know who was calling. I would know that voice anywhere, and I should have been expecting his call. Not just his call. This call. We’d been preparing for and talking about this call for two and a half years now.

My lips and fingers trembled, and I almost dropped the phone as I tried to make my throat work.

“I waited for you”, played over and over again like a broken record. A broken record with the most beautiful music still coming from it.

Turning my head just enough to look over my shoulder, I eyed the guy shrugging into his shirt, and my chest ached when I faced forward again.

No longer seeing the dorm room I was standing in, I let our memories consume me. “I—” I took in a shaky breath, and my voice came out as a strained whisper. “I didn’t wait for you.”

There was nothing. No sound, no response—only the most heartbreaking silence I’ve ever endured.

About TO THE STARS:

In the second standalone book in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Molly McAdams’ Thatch series, Knox Alexander must convince his long-time love Harlow Evans that they’re meant to be together.

He promised to wait for her.
She told him he was wasting his time.
Not waiting for him ended up being the biggest mistake of her life.

When they were younger, Knox Alexander swore to Harlow Evans that he would wait for her to turn eighteen so they could be together. But that was two and a half years away, and Harlow couldn’t ask him to give up all the fun and thrills of going away to college for her. As the years passed, Knox remained a constant in her life but when her eighteenth birthday came around, Harlow’s heart belonged to someone else.

Every day for the last four years, Harlow has been haunted by that fateful choice. And though he may appear unaffected by what happened in their past, Knox has always tried to fill the void Harlow left. But when he comes stumbling back into her life and refuses to leave, will Harlow finally let him into her heart…?

*****Patty’s Review*****

*****FOUR STARS*****
{ARC Generously Provided by Author}

Have you ever looked at someone…just one look, and you knew that was it? There would never be anyone else who would compare? That was Harlow for me. Every time.

I haven’t read a book by Molly McAdams in years. I don’t know why because although most people were not fond of Taking Chances and From Ashes, I actually really loved those two books. What I know from having read two of her works is that Molly’s stories never give off the rainbows & unicorns feelings. You have to be prepared for some seriously gut-wrenching angst and possibly even the death of a character you will have become fond of. I’m happy to report that the latter doesn’t happen in this one!!

It started off beautifully for me. Harlow Evans is a fifteen-year-old teenager who is really like an old soul. She hangs out with her older sister and her friends, and they all welcome her into their circle because she just fits in with them. One night at a concert Harlow meets a devastatingly gorgeous guy named Knox Alexander. Sparks fly between them right from the start and I openly admit to having those butterflies in my stomach right along with Harlow. But there’s a little problem that puts a damper on this budding romance, Knox is eighteen. To me, this wasn’t a big deal. They were close enough in age and it’s not like Knox was in his twenties. But this turns out to be a bigger dilemma than it needed to be in my opinion.

Even with the constant warnings from his friends to forget about Harlow, Knox continues to keep in close contact with her. The two remain friends and never dive into a serious relationship. They date other people, but there’s always the promise that on Harlow’s eighteenth birthday Knox will be coming for her to start their lives together. I swear that my heart was racing and that I swooned every time these two were able to spend some time together and I really rooted for them to make it to Harlow’s eighteenth birthday even though the prologue prepares you for the fact that things don’t work out the way they had hoped.

”Why would anyone waste their time only loving someone to the moon when they could love them to the stars?”

You will understand why just short of her eighteenth birthday, Harlow gets involved with a gorgeous Senior at her college and he completely sweeps her off her feet when she is feeling at her most vulnerable. As a reader, you just know that there is something off about this guy and want to jump into the pages of this book to warn Harlow away from him. But then I guess the story would have been a super short novella and we need this to be gut-wrenchingly painful. So the heroine has to go and make the biggest mistake of her young life by choosing the absolute WRONG MAN over her one and only true soul mate.

You will HATE Collin!! The things that he does to poor Harlow are just too despicable and I was often times screaming and pulling my hair because I wanted her to get far away from him. Have you seen the movie, Sleeping With The Enemy, with Julia Roberts? Well, this guy was a hundred times worse than the psychotic husband in that movie. If only Harlow could see that there’s always a way out, but she felt hopeless and alone.

 

She is described as looking really frail. As if she were 30 pounds underweight! This was one of my issues with the story. I couldn’t fathom how her own family didn’t see her transformation. I mean come on, Knox noticed right away when the two run into each other by accident after having not seen each other for over four and a half years!! Later on, in the story, it is addressed and that helped to bring me back around as well.

Knox always had my heart from the very second he walks into the pages of this book and so when he doesn’t do or react the way I wanted him to during the latter half of the story, I was a bit disappointed. I swear this was going to be an epic five star read for me up until we got to the 60% mark and usually I don’t like a book in the beginning but warm up to it by the end. So this was a new experience for me. I do have to say that by the time the story was nearing the end the author was able to bring back the Knox that I fell in love with and I did feel like the story ended perfectly for Harlow and Knox.
