Our passion unleashed, nothing could stop us.

OMG!!! WOW!!! What a rush! What a read! Days later and I’m still reeling from this roller coaster of a romantic suspense. Molly McAdams is responsible for my almost heart attack while reading Lock. Oh, my beating heart! Lock, the latest riveting Rebel series read, is PURE HEART-POUNDING PLEASURE! I ached for this adrenaline-filled adventure. I was ON EDGE from this exhilaration in words. This romantic suspense rocked my world! I LOVED EVERYTHING about Lock—a smart, suspenseful, and soulful love
Breathless. Blown away. Dumb freaking struck.
This book! God, my mind is still reeling and my heart is still hammering inside my chest from the intensity of everything I’ve just read. Lock was such an emotionally poignant and vastly captivating romantic suspense that consumed me every single second I was immersed in the world of the Borellos. Only Molly McAdams can rob me of my breath, make my heart squeeze and skip a thousand beats, and drown me in a heap of emotions like this. She’ll make you f

Oh my freaking goodness! Molly McAdams is the QUEEN of romantic suspense and I can't even begin to express to you all how excited I was to FINALLY get my hands on Einstein's book because it feels like I have been waiting FOREVER for it! Although Dare and Lily (from Firefly) are still my favorite couple, I think that Einstein and Maverick might be a close second. Their story was absolutely INCREDIBLE and I was BLOWN AWAY by the author's beautifully

Maverick and Einstein's story is here, it's addictive compelling and heartbreak all at the same time it was a story i can honestly say i wasn't expecting it.

Who knew Einstein was hiding so much in plain sight? Intense doesn't even begin to describe my feelings. There is a particular passage that took my breath from me everything around me just stopped and I was there in that moment. Maverick is not a side character far from it and i loved getting to know how they met. His pain will become your

This book!
This book hurts. It screams, berates, and it fights. Lock does everything it possibly can to make you run away. Are you strong enough to continue reading or will you crumble?

I'm not even sure where to start other than to hurts. I cried. I sobbed. I ugly cried. Molly McAdams hit low and hard with this one. Lock hits vital organs with uncanny precision. Every feeling you will ever have: anger, rage, devastation, love, hope, remorse, loss, joy, and excitement. All those and more

I really enjoyed Lock, Einstein and Mavericks story, was full of suspense and
cleverly written with chapters showing past points of view. It kept me turning the pages for more.

Holy Hell, Lock is one hell of a crazy ride!

Einstein and Maverick - how cool are those two names?! And, the fact that their cool factor describes the kind of people they are as well only adds to how intriguing this hero and heroine are.

I haven’t met a heroine like Einstein in quite some time; her intelligence, her perseverance, her courage cannot be matched, and my heart felt her anguish and her suffering when nothing seemed to go as planned. I truly don’t know how someone is supposed to carry

Addictive, sexy, explosive. From page one, Lock grabs you by throat and doesn't let go until the end. So much tension, so much unknown, so much love and heartbreak. I was on pins and needles, needing to find out what happened next, scared to flip to the next page.
In this book we get Einstein and Maverick. While I couldn't wait to jump into their story, I was also scared. You see, I love Einstein. She's been a favorite since we were first introduced to her and I was nervous. I shouldn't have bot

[I received a digital ARC for an honest review]

Lock by Molly McAdams is an intense and emotionally packed novel. It was dark and depressing and beautiful.

Einstein is a computer genius, who's been in a relationship that went downhill not long after it started. It's emotionally and physically abusive but things would only be worse if she walked away. When she is finally free she is scarred but now I can finally be with a man she really loves. Maverick fell for Einstein the moment she walked into h

Lock by Molly McAdams is one intense, yet beautiful ride. I absolutely loved this book. So much suspense, emotion, and flat out one of the best love stories I've read. It will keep you hooked from beginning to end.

Einstein's character is one to remember. She endures so much pain throughout this book, but she still stays strong and tries to live her life without anyone knowing everything she had to go through. That is until she lays eyes on Maverick. It's an instant attraction, one they have to s

Every time I read a Molly Mc Adams book I feel like her writing has surpassed everything I’ve read by her before. Lock was an incredibly emotional and challenging read. Some parts of the book were so heartbreaking I could feel the ache in my chest. Other moments were so harrowing I could only set my kindle down and allow myself a moment to breathe and recuperate. Einstein’s story wasn’t easy, but it was beautifully told.

Avery, aka Einstein, has been a huge question mark for me since we first met

5 Gripping Stars!!

The minute I started this book I knew I was in for an emotional, suspense filled, sexy ride. Einstein and Maverick are a puzzle that needs putting together, but there are so many pieces to their story and everyone has a role in it!

This book moves between past and present to get us where we need to be to understand the who’s, what’s and why’s of activities taking place. And when I tell you I was on the edge of my seat for most of this book, that’s no lie. Around every corner t

if you read the first book, then you'll about Einstein . She was an amazing character and after reading this book, I got to know more about her. More of her past, more of what makes her who she is. She went through hell with Johnny her dead boyfriend and well I didn't care for him at all. Period. Once she got through the hardest parts, she finally let Mav in more. Telling him more of what happened and letting them become more than just good friends.

Then you have Mav. He was in the first book as

Thank God the book ended the way it did I am so relieved, I thought for sure Einstein was a goner. At the start we get introduced to Maverick and Diggs being busted out of a Government facility by the Borellos and the story starts 11 years following that. All this time Einstein has been stuck with her boyfriend Johnny feeling as if it is her responsibility to help and fix him from his rage. In a turn of events Johnny gets killed and Einstein can finally be with Maverick who has loved her form af ...more

With each book in this series the suspense level rises a little higher. The unconditional love that Ms McAdams brings to her characters is souls touching. The two together and you have yourself a book you just can't put down.

Einstein was a big part of book one and you truly fall in love with her character then. But as we flashback to the past her trying to heal Johnny, and falling in love with Maverick even from a distance. But as we watch her lose her heart and push everyone away, it is painst

Wow! Just wow! Lock is an emotional roller coaster with twists and turns around every corner. When you thought your heart couldn’t handle anymore well think again. Molly will crush it and stitch it, piece by piece, back together again.

From the first time I read Firefly I was instantly intrigued by Einstein. She was a mystery that needed to be unraveled. I knew there was more about her but I would’ve never guessed just how much more. We read about her secrets. Her triumphs. Her anger. Her sadnes

I. Loved. This. Book! It was such a rush and I was sucked in from the very first word. I’d been wanting Einstein’s story for so very long. I was thrilled to meet Maverick. He’s just what I would want for Einstein. He was so friggin sweet with a pure heart of gold and the patients of a saint... they deserve each other!

Anytime I get a chance to read a Molly McAdams book I seriously devour it. She writes as it it can go straight to my soul, to my heart. Lock is full of thrilling romance, and I mea

Speechless. That is what I was after finishing this book. I was gutted. This story is NOT an easy “find love and keep it tale”. It is so much more.

I fell in love with Einstein in the previous novels where she appeared so I was really excited to hear her story. Definitely did not disappoint. Einstein is an emotional badass. This girl has been through so much, and she still keeps on. I related a great deal to her because of that.

Maverick. Swoon. Hey boy hey! I absolutely adored his character. If

I LOVED THIS BOOK....but I have to admit there were times I wanted to throw it across the room! That’s what I love about Molly McAdams writing though. She’s not afraid to make you cry, or to break your heart. She always finds a way to put it back together in the end. Not in the predictable way a lot of authors do..she definitely does the opposite of what you expect! This book takes your heart and your mind to the edge of sanity and when you think you can’t take anymore, she pushes you a little f ...more

Where do I begin with this book. We know Einstein and her genius, we know Maverick and his assassin ways. In this book we see a side of these two we never saw before.

We met them in the redemption series ( firefly and nightshade), now we finally get to know them. Einstein has had so much happen that no one knows about. Maverick is the one who knows more then the rest of the family. This story unfolds over time and I had moments of laughter and moments where I felt the emotions bleeding off the p

The minute I started it I was sucked right in and HAD to know what happened!! I couldn’t flip the pages on my kindle fast enough.

I wasnt sure as I read how this book would go as some parts were a bit difficult to read. I felt rather sad for Einstein and what she endures.
So I keep reading!! Its a suspenseful story!
But then you come to a part and you think is that who I think it is??? OMG indeed!
I was a little confused with the chapters going past to present but I came to rather like most of the characters and I liked how it ended.
What happens when Einstein gets caught up in something? Does she make it out? What happens

This book is emotionally gripping at its finest! It's almost hard to review because of how badly I want to talk about a few points in the book. Molly's writing continues to get better and better, her characters become friends and I can vividly see the scenes in my head. This book is no exception, I was moved to tears, laughing out loud, and on the edge of my seat. Lock takes you on a roller coaster that is enjoyable and emotional at the same time.

I must start by saying I LOVE this author!! She has been a one-click author for me for years now. I’ve read about fifteen of her books and over half of those have been 5 star reads for me. I have to say this one is my least favorite. I’m not really sure why I couldn’t connect with it. I feel like something is off with me because all the other reviews are amazing.

I feel like the book was jumping around to two weeks, two days ago to now in two point of views. I’ve found in the past that sometimes

We first meet and fall in love with these characters in The Redemption Series. I loved getting some insight into some of their backgrounds. I enjoyed seeing all these characters together. There was definitely some humor, heartfelt moments, and times where I needed to pause to lock in my emotions.

Molly McAdams brings us back into the world of her Rebel Series with her latest romantic suspense release, Lock. Maverick and Einstein have an intriguing and complicated story. Told from alternating viewpoints, Lock is one of those books that tugs at your heartstrings. You're not going to want to put it down once you get started. Definitely a must read!

I love Molly’s books.

Lock had it all- romance, suspense, a roller-coaster of emotions and twists and turns. It is fantastically written and kept me on the edge of my seat. It did not disappoint at all and I felt a rush when reading. It was exciting and a good change from a lot of the books I’ve read lately. I totally recommend it!
