You know what happens when you think you have it all and nothing can be more perfect than in that moment? It gets taken away. Your sense of security, your hopes and dreams all gone within the blink of an eye because you were in a bubble of being untouchable. You see the funny thing is, as much as we all think we have this perfect world and our lives are good, were not exempt from being destroyed. We’re, not exempt from evil lurking around and holding us in its grip. WE’RE. NOT. UNTOUCHABLE.
“We’re a battle of the brightest day and the darkest night- and I want to lie in the wake of our war.”
Briar is a simple girl but she had the very best of everything. Engaged to a man who worships the ground she walks on, and having a simple job has her feeling pretty good about her life. That all changes in the blink of an eye when she’s kidnapped from her job and taken to an unknown location. Scared and alone, Briar must now face a completely different life where darkness will now become her new light. But can she survive this type of darkness? Especially when he comes in the form of tall and deadly?
Lucas Holt has been many things in his past life but loving hasn’t been one of them. When Briar walks into his life, that part of him that he thought was dead has now been resuscitated and he has no intention of ever letting her go. But will Briar make it easy for him?
“Because he wasn’t a lover and his touch shouldn’t steal my breath. But it did.”
I really enjoyed this story and I loved the fact that it had just the right amount of suspense to keep my interest and it wasn’t overdone. Briar and Lucas had an extremely complicated and I was extremely nervous but excited at the same time. Yes I’m sick in the head but you guys already knew that. This author kept me on the edge of my seat just waiting with bated breaths because I didn’t know what was going to happen and I freakin LOVED that.
If you’re looking for a suspenseful read with just the right amount of seines, this one is definitely for you guys.

"Blackbird fly, blackbird fly. Into the light of the dark black night."
I have nothing but all good praises for Molly McAdams. Blackbird is a proof of how talented she is as an author. How brilliant she is for amazingly delivered a story so unforgettable, a story that will really leave a mark to all the readers. Because Blackbird? It's Molly McAdams at her finest. This is her masterpiece!
“Because he is the darknessHe is the devil….…and I love him”
I admit, reading this book at first gave me conflicting emotions. I actually stopped reading it and waited days because I do not know if I read the right book. That to say because it was really new to me, I'm used to the angst Molly gave us, I'm used to that heart wrenching scenes she's known for but I was never used to read a book from her that was just dark and so twisted. When I finally put on my big girl panties, I am amazed! I love the story so much I hardly put it down.
First few pages in and I literally cringe at the thought, but slap me several times, but this book just opened another version of me. The twisted-pervert side that had me questioning my morality. Because who will not? The story screams DARK AND TWISTED but I was devouring it like it was my last meal. I was flipping through the pages like a mad woman looking for her next prey. I was puzzling the pieces together, inhaling and breathing the suspense. I was at the edge reading the book but my knickers were soaking for the twisted desire I have with Lucas and Briar's interaction. Damn! Tell me who aren't affected by Lucas and Briar? Tell me who aren't rooting for them even when it wasn't the right idea? Tell me who aren't as giddy as I am swooning for this broken man and loving him despite his darkness? None. Because everything is worth falling for.Everything is just perfectly imperfect the way it is. And I am loving it to it bits. I can never forget this story. In fact, this made my love to the author in another new level.
Seriously, when I thought about it, I was definitely thinking it was all sorts of wrong. But reading it in Molly's perfectly written and flawless portrayal and delivery, I realized I cannot think of that. Blackbird and her devil is just perfect together. Their chemistry is sinful but at the same time rightful in all aspects. The sizzling scenes had me. That emotions in the book portrayed even got me. I was so consumed by them. The complicated relationship they had me even questioning if there will be even a HEA with the leads. When I thought I had it figured out, I was wrong, there are pieces yet to unfold and there are twists and turns I never saw coming. Whatever it is, it's for you to fins out. This book is better read blind. You can as much feel the emotions when you do not have any idea what's bound to happen. I'll tell you, you'll appreciate it more.
To Molly McAdams, kudos! Blackbird just became one of my top reads this year. As I read through the pages, I can feel the powerful words and lines you gave to it. It was addicting, sinful but out-rightly beautiful...so beautiful in the darkest, suspenseful manner. Ahhh..this is romance in the newest level.
