Have you ever read a book that caught you off guard?
A book that consumed you within the first few chapters? A book that you could re read again for the first time?
A book that stayed with you long after you read?
Blackbird was that book and I hope my review will do Molly McAdams justice!
Briar was engaged and about to start her new life with her fiancé Kyle. Briar calls herself helping out a coworker by taking her shift and she is kidnapped during work. No good deed goes unpunished I guess! She is held captive in a new place by her new owner Lucas.
Lucas is trying to prove his mentor, William that he is ready to have his first girl. He chose Briar because she sang during her auction and has nicknamed her “Blackbird”.
Right off the bat I just knew where this story was going and I've never been so happy to be so wrong in my life! There were so many twists and turns that I didn't even see coming and had my jaw dropping!! I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. Even when my eyes got fatigued and the lack of sleep caused a headache I HAD to keep going. I don't want to give away any plot details but this story isn't what you think!
"He was my darkness, and I was his light. And when we collided, it was still nothing short of incredible."
“I have the wrong girl for my life, not for me.”
Ugh, Lucas just about killed me when he told this to Briar. You could feel his inner conflict and turmoil throughout this story. Lucas knows in this world you can't have any attachments as this is seen as a sign of weakness and vulnerability. Briar is also fighting her attraction to Lucas as she is engaged to Kyle. But as time goes on it's hard for them not to fall. Lucas is able to understand her in ways that no one else could. Briar is the light that this dark man needs. They were able to reach each other in different ways that no one else could.
It's been a few years since I've read a book by Molly McAdams and it was so nice to revisit this author. I have to say I honestly wasn't expecting to have this reaction while reading this story. This book was different from the books that I have previously read by this author. I was sucked in from the VERY beginning and I couldn't put it down. I was in a HORRIBLE book funk and this book snapped me out of it in no time. I stayed up until 2am to read and woke back up 5 hours later because I HAD to finish! This book consumed my brain and body. The writing was good as usual but this story was something else! This story shows how you can find love and light in the most unexpected places during some of the worst times ever. I highly recommend reading this book and finding the person who knows why you sing.
