Series: A Redemption Novel
Genre: Romantic Suspense
I have been loving the Redemption series by Molly McAdams and Nightshade was no exception. The final book in the series tells the story of Kiernan who was trained for one thing and one thing only. There are three books in the series, and I highly suggest reading them in order. Each one is a great read and so worth it!
Kiernan was raised to be an assassin. His heart was cold. Once he lost what mattered to him the most, nothing else mattered. Until her. But can this cold-blooded killer’s heart learn to beat again? Jessica is struggling against her own demons. She wants to help her mother, but to what extremes will she go to do so? And will it cost her?
I found this book so much more emotional than the first two and much more of a slow-burn. I was at the edge of my seat! Here you have two broken and lost people who do not trust. But as Kiernan and Jess are pulled to each other more and more, can they keep denying themselves? And if they give in, can they find a way to let the other in? And with danger surrounding them at every turn, can they survive?
I loved Nightshade. It was such an emotional and dark read that will take you for one wild and crazy roller coaster ride. It was a great ending to this series which I have loved! I highly recommend reading it!
She is chaos. She is poison. And she is the one thing I crave.
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.”
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.
