The heart-stopping final installment in New York Times bestselling author Molly McAdams’s Redemption series.
My life has never been my own. From the time I could walk, I was trained to be the mob’s hardened assassin. To be a monster. I’ve been told what to do, when to kill, and who to love. The minute I strayed, I lost everything.
Then I met Jessica.
She swept into my life like a storm of heartache, seduction, and intrigue. She’s everything I hate, but with one look, I can’t stay away. With one touch, she ignites a craving unlike anything I’ve ever known.
But her secrets threaten to destroy everything closest to me. Including her…
Together we’re poison. A destructive combination of darkness and chaos. And I want to savor every drop in my veins.
***The Redemption series is a series of romantic suspense standalones***
The muscles in Kieran’s jaw ticked, and the anger rolling off his body suddenly felt like a living thing. But his stare never wavered from mine as I soundlessly opened the knife at my side.
“Or did I hit a little too close for comfort last night?” I asked, my voice both seductive and mocking as I took another step closer to him and then another. “Could you just not satisfy her?”
My brows rose at the growl behind his demand. “Is that right?”
His eyes held so much warning as I took the last step to press my body against his.
My body trembled and begged to get closer still, but I forced myself not to move.
I hated him for the way he felt.
I hated him for the way my body craved more and betrayed me.
I hated him for everything he was and for making me want him in a way I’d never wanted a man.
I hated him.
“Who knew the mob’s feared assassin was lacking.”
One second I was in front of him, staring into those wild eyes, the next I was pressed face-first to the wall with Kieran’s hard body caging me against it. His strong hands were pinning mine to the wall. My knife was gone.
His chest moved roughly against my back, his breath made my hair dance along my cheek and lips, and I ached to push against where I could feel his hardened length in his jeans.
What is wrong with me?
I tried to force a wild laugh from my lungs.
I tried to taunt him.
But there was nothing.
“How long?” he demanded, his voice hoarse.
I curled my hands against the wall and shivered beneath him when his body moved closer and he pressed our hands harder to the wall.
“What?” I asked breathlessly.
“How long have you been watching us?”
“Wouldn’t you like to know?”
A huff tumbled from my lips when his mouth met my ear. The sound ended on a whimper when the movement forced my butt against his erection.
I needed the heavy, sickening feeling weighing my body down. I needed the disgust and hatred at having a man so close. I needed the reminder of who I was and why I did what I did.
But all I could smell was the subtle hint of his soap.
All I could see was his tattooed arms twisting over mine.
All I could feel was his lean muscles crowding around me in a way that felt so foreign and good.
And I wanted more . . .
Weak. So weak.
My body tensed.
If he had yelled the question, it might have been easier. But there was something truly terrifying in the soft tenor of his voice. And for the first time, I was afraid to be in the same room as him.
But I wasn’t scared for my life.
I was scared for my soul.
I slowly looked over my shoulder and forced myself to hold his disturbing stare. “Nearly half my life.”

WOW!!!! I don’t even know where to start with this review. I am left absolutely speechless after reading Nightshade.
This was another amazing read by Molly McAdams. I will be honest…..this book was a little harder for me to read than Blackbird and Firefly. Nightshade I felt was much more darker, grittier and more raw than the first two books. There were times I had to stop reading to catch my breath before I could continue on with this story. But this series is definitely a different side of Molly’s writing and I think this is her at her best.
But what would a reader expect when you have two very dark and tortured souls that come together. Can Kieran and Jessica find their way out of the dark??
Nightshade is the third and final book in Molly McAdams Redemption Series. Although each of these books are standalone novels and don’t have to be read in order. My recommendation is you at least read Firefly before reading Nightshade. You meet Kieran and get some of his background in Firefly. Also a lot of the storyline in this book is connected to things that happen in Firefly. I do think that Molly does a good job filling in all the blanks for those who haven’t read Firefly first, but I still think reading Firefly is the best option.
As with the other books in this series I won’t be discussing the storyline at all, because this story needs to unfold by itself for every reader. You need to go in blind to truly feel all the emotions that this story invokes. Nightshade is a complete standalone and is told from Dual POV. I thought this was a perfect ending to an amazing series. She wrapped everything up nicely in this book.
I was kept on the edge of my seat for the entire book. My emotions were all over the place. Like I said earlier….I had to take breaks and step away a couple times just to get back into the right headspace. This book consumed me!!!! This book, as well as the whole series, is so well written and sucks you in from the very beginning. What I am always impressed with in Molly’s books is the amount of research and planning she puts into her stories, so that the reader can feel everything her characters do. You can’t help but get sucked into their lives and experience all their ups and downs right along with them.
I know this review is vague and really doesn’t tell you much but I don’t feel I can do this story or series justice. You truly just need to experience these books for yourself. READ THIS BOOK!!! You won’t be sorry.
This is another one I can add to my Best of 2017 list.
A powerhouse romantic suspense that will have you questioning your morals and second guessing your view on love.
A captivating romantic suspense that will keep you breathless until the last sentence.
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.
