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.

What happens when you fall in love with the wrong man? 

Being the princess of an Irish-American Mob family isn’t easy. Constantly with a target on her back, Lily has been kept under protection for most of her life. With the murder of brother, that protection has went up ten fold causing her family to go as far as faking her own death. Trapped in an unwanted life and loving someone who’s purpose is to keep you safe, has Lily feeling there’s more to this life than just hiding. 

Getting a taste of freedom once a week to meet her best friend is not only an escape from her daily routine, but getting to see a glimpse of the man who secretly makes her want to have more, has Lily looking forward to Mondays. But little does she know that being around her secret admirer, is going to set off some deadly chain reactions. 

“I’d give you world If you asked for it, but not at the expense of your life. Don’t aK me to stop saving you, because I don’t know how.” 

Demitri Borello isn’t your average guy. Head of the Borello Family and someone you don’t want to mess with, Demitri has had one goal for the past four years and it doesn’t include falling for the woman who comes into his Café every Monday like clock work. But you know what they say: No matter how hard you try, you can’t help who you fall in love with and Dare is about to get a hard lesson in that.

“We were like fire, but fire never lasts. An when it’s over, devastation is left in its wake.” 
Torn between two men and fighting for a normal future, Lily’s journey to happiness was not an easy road. There were a lot of bloodshed, broken hearts, and betrayals like you can’t even imagine. Dare and Lily’s connection was so electric, I was afraid they were going to start having everything go haywire. I loved how Dare took care of Lily in his own way but he also left everything up to her because he knew she was scared of being with him. 

This story certainly had it’s ups and down and you’re going to be taken on one heck of a ride so be prepared! If you loved “Blackbird”, you’re going to be obsessed with “Firefly”.

“Truth or dare,” 
“Dare.”“Lie to me . . . ruin me. Just let yourself love me.”
Lawd have mercy! This book just ruined me in all possible ways. Firely is yet another book of Molly McAdams I will treasure for the rest of my life. I am not just captivated with the story, I am obsessed with it. Surely, Molly McAdams knows how to make her readers not just feel, she knows how to etched and engraved her words to her reader's heart and mind. She did mine. In fact, I still have a book hungover and I know for a fact, it will stay with me for days. Books like this is not easily forgotten, it will remain forever.

Firefly is the second book of Redemption Novel following the story of Dare and Lily. If I have love Blacked, this book gave me another feels, a different kind of feels and emotion but all the same, gave me and left me with the best feels through the authors brilliant writing style. I devoured it wholeheartedly and I inhaled it as if it's my last breath. I can't help not to. Dare and Lily, are not just easy to love. Their story.. their's addicting. I couldn't get it out of my system. Kudos to Molly for capturing my heart with her portrayals of these characters. The blurb may gave a strong foundation of this story, gave us snippets of Lily and Dare but it wasn't even halfway on what this book was all about. Man, these characters shared more than that. I could not help but just caressed my reader with their names on it. 

That's how I was obsessed with this book. That's how I love these characters. I can feel the emotions that was seeping through the pages. Lily, beautiful and brave. I have an instant connection with this woman. I love how she stands her ground and I love her fierceness and her strong will to fight for love. Dare..OMG, this man made me not just swoon over him. I felt his pain, I felt everything he went through but Lord, he was instense as he was powerful. It could feel it and it showed with every turn of the pages.Their forbidden romance was killing me but I rooted for it.. for them until the very end. It wasn't full of angst but just right enough to keep me on the edge and made me flip through pages and pages seeking answers and maybe taking refuge because as I said..the feels. It gripped my heart and shattered it to pieces. Betrayals and lies here and there, it was heart breaking and heart warming all together but I live for it. It was just wonderfully crafted that in the end left me speechless and stunned. 

'How do I feel? Firefly I'm fucking terrified." 
"Of what?" I asked when the silence became too much.

Ahhhh.. It wrenceh my heart and I felt like I was punched in the gut. I was gasping for air to breathe. 

Overall, I will recommend this book and if only I can give it more than 5 stars I will. Firefly is Romantic Suspense at it's finest. It breaks my heart yet Molly McAdams fixed and healed it in the most beautiful way. In the end, I feel like my heart's gonna burst with the heart warming feels this book left me. Firefly is sure you don't want to miss. I dare you to read this book blind. Ride a roller coaster journey of Dare and Lily's road to HEA with not just bumps and curveballs but twists and turns you'll never expect.

“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.
