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.

So I'm going to be totally upfront about Lyric, I HAVE NOT the lead up novel Redemption, and I think that reduced my enjoyment of Lyric a little, mainly because I knew very little of the backstory, and even though the author Molly McAdams does go over some of it, it's not as detailed as I would like.

Now on to the characters; Libby, daughter of a secret mafia family, reckless, wild and totally in love with Maxon. Maxon; rock star, loyal, and totally in love with Libby. Obviously, this story is smoking hot, but EVERY time Libby's Mom is there, I want to smack her!

But anyway, Lyric is a story about fighting for freedom! From everything that hurts you and even your family. But I will warn you, you need a lot of tissues for this book! Heck, you might as well invest in Kleenex!

Even though I struggled in parts this book managed to get under my skin and into my heart! It will be one I have to read again, starting with Redemption this time.

I give Lyric 4 stars.

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.
