The final breathtaking installment in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Molly McAdams’s REBEL series.
Protecting people isn’t simply my job—it’s engrained in me.
It doesn’t atone for my countless sins.
There’s no washing the blood off my hands after a lifetime in the mob.
I just want to save those who can’t save themselves.
Then Sutton Larson came at me with diamond-encrusted heels.
She’s judgmental and guarded and the most infuriating woman I’ve ever met.
Gaining her trust is nearly impossible. Protecting her is anything but easy. When she becomes more than a job, our passion builds like a brutal storm—beautiful and consuming.
But we have an expiration date made of lies and betrayals and lethal games.
One we thought we could outlive.
And it’s taunting us for thinking we could.
My name’s Conor Kennedy. I’ve lost enough people in my life . . . I refuse to lose her.
One of my favorite things about starting a new Molly McAdams book is knowing it’s going to elicit a physical reaction from me. Limit was no exception, by the time I was finished reading my jaw was sore from clenching it, from grinding my teeth in frustration from all the secrets, lies, half-truths, and downright manipulation going on in the book. Sutton and Conor’s love story wasn’t conventional, it wasn’t easy, but it was redemptive. I’m going to have a hard time saying goodbye to this world, but Limit was a fabulous send-off to two superb series.
Every time I thought I knew whose life was more heartbreaking between Sutton and Conor, another layer of horror they’d lived through was revealed. Despite all of the cruelty they’d been through, both Sutton and Conor were both exceedingly loving people. They protected the people more important to them fearlessly and ruthlessly, even when they knew they might be fighting a losing battle. They each needed that kind of selflessness in a partner, and watching them learn to trust and love one another was heartwarming.
I’m a sucker for little kids in books; they always reveal a vulnerability in even the most terrifying and closed off characters. Lexi was no exception. She served to give all the otherwise guarded adults a way to drop their walls, even momentarily. Her intuitiveness and ability to read people’s intentions was uncanny but somehow enforced her innocence and purity. I fell in love with her just as effortlessly as Conor did, and it was beautiful to see her trust him when she had every reason not to ever have faith in an adult male again in her life.
The suspense in Limit was intense. Even though we were seeing every side of the story, I was still on edge throughout the novel. Ms. McAdams was able to make each reveal, every flashback, all of the taunts build in a way that left me entirely unsettled and leery of everything. It seemed like evil was hiding around every corner, waiting for me to let my guard down to pounce. Molly McAdams knows precisely how to place her words and build her plots for maximum tension, and I live for her outstanding art.
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.
I’ve waited for him for over a decade.
Loyalties kept us apart. A death set us free.
Our passion unleashed, nothing could stop us.
Until my world was rocked—my greatest failure leaving me with my greatest heartbreak.
Now Maverick is baring his soul to me, begging me to let him in. God knows I want to, but I love him, and that means I’ll do anything to keep him from the pain haunting me. Even if it destroys us both.
Someone has been waiting for this perfect moment to strike.
Waiting for me to be too consumed with hurt to notice he was there.
Someone who knows me.
I’m Einstein . . . like the genius, only smarter and with better hair.
There’s nothing I can’t hack into, crack open, or figure out. Well, almost nothing.
And if I can’t beat his sinister game, it won’t just be my heart that stops beating.
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.
