While I enjoyed this book, it didn't blow me away like I had expected. Don't get me wrong. It was good. It just lacked that something extra that takes a book from good to great.

'Firefly' is the second book in Molly McAdams 'Redemption' series. If, like me, you expected this book to be very similar to the first book in the series, you'll be disappointed. The storylines are very loosely connected, but the stories are very different. Being that I wasn't the biggest fan of the first book, but loved

How can one author's words make you feel so deeply??? I don't think there is another author out there like Molly McAdams that is able to reach into the depths of my heart and make me feel the things I feel with every single one of her books.

Last year was the first time since 2012 that I read another of her books because she crushed with me Taking Chances and From Ashes. Don't get me wrong, those two books are 5+++ star books for me, but my heart ached the emotions those boo

Just WOW—I couldn't wait to get my hands on Firefly as I LOVED Blackbird so, so, SO MUCH and Molly knocked it out of the park with this one.
Firefly was just as dark and intense as Blackbird but the suspense, the fire, the brilliance of this story took it to a whole other level.

This book gives a whole new meaning to the game of “Truth or Dare”!

With the Irish Mafia at its roots, this was definitely a book that I was going to savour, especially with the key protagonists love story was formed in the midst of two warring mob families.

The heroine in this story is emotionally broken following the death of her brother during a burglary to which she had a front row seat. As a result, Lily O’Sullivan’s dreams of escaping her family's legacy with the one man that she has always

Here I sit hours after reading, still STUNNED SPEECHLESS from Firefly by Molly McAdams, a STUNNING STORY that stole, stripped, and shattered both my heart and soul. It's as if this story was my perfect match, my soulmate in words. Firefly felt like it was made for me: MY PERFECT STORM.

This story stole my breath, where I was left gasping for air. This story stole my soul, a soul

I loved Blackbird. The characters, the story, the feels were all amazing. So I could not wait to read Firefly, book two in Molly McAdams’ Redemption series. And I was not disappointed. It was just as captivating and emotional.

Lily O’Sullivan is the daughter of an Irish-American mobster and the princess of the family. As such she was trapped in a life she never asked for. After devastating events, her life becomes almost a prison with no escape. Loving one man, she hoped for more, but instead fo

Not going to lie, this was a very INTENSE book., so intense that I had to put it down for periods of time, but then all of a sudden the tide changed. I found that I couldn't put the book down at all.
Again I have to stand up and clap for Molly McAdams. She stepped out of the box again. The Redemption series is unlike anything she has written before.
Besides intense it was very dark. I cried a few times. But I was eating my heart out alot as well. You need to read this book to understand what I

You know you always have that one author that no matter what you're reading, if their book comes out, you drop everything and read it? Everybody has one. Mine is Molly McAdams. And yes I stopped what I was reading because Firefly appeared on my Kindle and well, I HAD TO READ IT.

In case you don't know, Firefly is the second book in Molly's Redemption series. It's a departure from the usual Molly. But I promise it is absolutely fantastic. I loved the first book, but omg Firefly just blew me away.

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 wh

Kieran Hayes, mob assassin aka Nightshade, is the man who spent his life loving her and would do anything to protect her, even give his own life to save hers. They planned a future together, and he promised to take her away from the nightmare they were forced to live in, but after waiting so many years for that to happen Lily lost faith in Kieran.

Oh what you do to my heart Molly McAdams! Other hit as far as I am concerned. This book is just...ahhhh I can't put into words. If you know Molly McAdams you know you are going to get a story that will give you the mother of all book hangovers, and a story so rich and real you feel like you are part of it. I love love love this book.

Truth or Dare?

Truth - I love all of Molly's books. She has a way with words that sucks you in. Her characters can seem so real that you feel their emotions with them. In Firefly my heart broke for characters when I didn't think it was possible and I felt claustrophobic with Lily. I love that she is willing to step out of the ordinary with her books.

Dare - Pick up this book as soon as you can. With characters like Kieran, Demitri, Lily and the rest of the gang it will be nearly impossible to do

Move over Romeo and Juliet, I think I have a new favorite tragic love story. I know it's Shakespeare and one of the oldest and treasured love stories ever, but seriously Firefly was one of the best books I have ever read. I do love a good mafia romance, and that is one of the many reasons that attracted me to the book. Once I started reading about Lily, I just couldn't stop. I love Mollie's other books, but she really went well beyond any expectations I had. This book was flawless, and I know I ...more

I couldn't put this book down. Okay I had to put it down to be an adult but I didn't want too. This book was beautiful!

I am a sucker for the Romeo and Juliet styled stories. Move over Gage because Dare is now my favorite of Molly's guys!

This is different from other work Molly has done just like Blackbird but it just shows that she can write anything she wants! I am truly loving this Redemption series!!

Truth or Dare

Truth: you won't be able to put his book down! Firefly and Blackbird (redemption series) are beyond what Molly has written before.
I thought Blackbird had topped all of Molly's books for me then here comes Firefly. It's got a Romeo and Juliet vibe but it's so much more intense.

Dare: I dare you to read this book.

Lily has a secret though, every Monday she

This Series is Growing on Me

While not a huge fan of Blackbird, Firefly grabbed my attention. Maybe not right away, but Molly McAdams sets up one crazy mafia story then takes her readers on an angst filled ride until the end. Firefly is the second book in the redemption series, you do not need to read the first to know what's going on this time around.
