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.


Ahhh! I have been EAGERLY anticipating this spin-off series ever since Molly McAdams first announced it shortly after the release of her final installment in her addictively captivating Redemption series…perhaps my favorite series of 2017 I might add!

After inhaling the first installment in the Rebel series, I am even more excited to be back in the Borello world because my goodness this family knows how to consume ones heart! Firefly aka Dare and Lily’s story is my absolute FAVORITE Molly McAdams’ book ever (although let me just say that they are all EQUALLY amazing), so color me surprised when I learned that Libby (Dare’s sister) was getting the first book in this brand new series! Let’s just say that I was certainly a VERY happy reader!

Unlike Molly McAdams previous releases, I was a little nervous going into this book for the sheer fact that I have never been so invested in a group of characters as much as I was when it came to the Borello Family. For the past year these characters have controlled my whole body and soul and now that it came time to revisit them I wasn’t sure if they would still live up to my expectations. HOWEVER…I should know by now never to doubt this author because she can do NO WRONG. This story just helped me fall deeper in LOVE with this dark and twisted family!

Lyric aka Libby and Maxon’s story was a beautifully raw and captivating tale that will capture any readers heart. This one although filled with suspense had a completely different feel to it then the Redemption series. Not only did we get that suspense element that we all love and crave, but drama and mystery was in full swing from beginning to end. Oh and we certainly cannot forget the ANGST! SO MUCH FREAKING ANGST that readers won’t know what to do with themselves.

This book was EVERYTHING and I can’t wait for the next installment because I have a feeling that we are getting closer to Einstein’s story and her happily ever after…something she wholeheartedly deserves! Oh please Molly McAdams tell me her story is next…PLEASE!

About Molly McAdams

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.
