From New York Times bestselling author Molly McAdams comes a powerhouse romantic suspense that will have you questioning your morals and second guessing your view on love.

I live in a world few know exist. I’ve trained for this. I know what to say, what to do, and how to act. I’ve perfected the lethal calm required for this life.

Now it’s time to buy my first girl. But all it takes is one look at the brave girl who starts singing mid-auction for that calm to slip.

Briar Chapman is going to be the death of me, and I don’t care. I’ll take every day with her until that death comes, and I’ll welcome it when it does.

On the outside, Lucas Holt is what nightmares are made of. A man cloaked in darkness, with sin-filled eyes and an enticing grin. A devil so devastatingly beautiful and cruel that his very presence instills fear.

But beneath his terrifying, ever-calm exterior is an affectionate man haunted by a past that refuses to stay buried. And Lucas looks at me as though he’s finally found the only person who can make it all go away.

We’re a battle of the brightest day and the darkest night—and I want to lie in the wake of our war.

Wow this book was so different to any books I would normally read and it hooked me from the first chapter. Dark doesn't normally work for me but this story is raw and gritty and I was not putting it down until I had read the last word..... Lucas has been groomed to be a dark and dangerous bad guy and it's time for him to buy a girl at his first auction but that girl was not meant to be Briar. Briar was never meant to be in that auction she had the perfect life or did she ....... This book captivated me and took over my life for the time I was reading it, the chemistry is hot and the emotions will have you wanting to embrace the devil, is Lucas the prince of darkness I recommend you one click this book and find out. Loved this book it's a must read I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

At first it was hard to read this book. Such a hard strong topic to write about. Human trafficking and stories like it are always hard to read. Molly definitely did a good job on writing this story . To show darkness, power, and love. Not at all what I was expecting in this story. Absolutely loved this book. I love all of Molly's books. She has a great way of writing that sticks with you. Even when you have to put her books down or are done with one they stay with you. You can't stop thinking about them and will want more. She is an amazing author and I can not wait to read more of her books.

This is a Molly McAdams book, of course I had to read it! In the beginning I wasn't too sure it would be at the top of my list like the rest of her books. But as I got farther into it, the story got better. Then when I came to the realization that this w a s the story I had been waiting for. When I read nail polish, I melted. Trent Cruz was finally getting his story and I'm so glad it turned out as it did. I have been working sering about him since deceiving lies. Glad to finally know what he's been up to and was even happier that he wasn't the dickhead he started out as. Thanks for a wonderful story Molly!!!

This book sucked me in from the very beginning. Molly has such a great talent when it comes to gripping a reader's interest. Blackbird and Lucas' story is one that will keep you guessing on where this story is going to end up. I felt the emotions throughout this book. Fantastic read and I can't wait to see what else Molly brings out next.

Blackbird held ME captive as I consumed the words. I wanted to hurry through because I needed to know what was going to happen next but I forced myself to slow down and savor every turn of the page. Briar finds herself stolen and sold to the highest bidder. As she struggles through the tramatic situation, life has other plans for her. I loved this book. I want to tell you so much but I won't ruin the book for you. Just know that even if you question Briar's actions you will love her. You will want a Lucas for yourself. You will want to stab William with a rusted spoon in the eye. For all of the Molly McAdams fans out there, this is a MUST have. Trust me, you will have your mind blown and be screaming at your book and maybe a few squeals of least I did. I will fight you for him. Ok, maybe Rock, paper, scissors you for him. #hesmine

Sorry but her work has gone downhill. Her last few books have been so hard to finish. Get it together! There was no character development. One day Briar hates the guy and the next she loves him, not her fiance. Ridiculous storyline that has been done by other authors who were able to do a better job.

Finished it in a day... again. Molly knocks every book out of the park that's for sure. I'd love to write more but don't want to spoil it for anyone but we've been waiting for this story for so so long!!

I have been a fan of Molly McAdams for a few years now. I have read all of her books. When a new one comes out I'm so excited to get my hands on it. Blackbird is not like anything Molly McAdams has written before. She covers a subject that is not often spoken about but we all know it's happening. For the first few chapters of the book I honestly thought of the movie Kiss the Girls. Scenes from the movie kept flashing through my mind. Then as I went further into the story I stopped thinking of that movie and started really seeing these characters and their story. Even though this book has a darker side to it. It is still a beautiful love story. Briar has a mind set that I think most of us have which is you hear about these things happening around the world and you think oh that will never happen to me. Then it does happen to Briar. And she is in for a world wind of what to do and how to survive. And she also starts discovering who she is in the midst of it all. Lucas is dark and scary and yet there is something about him that you are drawn to from the moment you meet him. This is definitely a piece of work you do not want to miss from Molly McAdams! I'm thrilled for more of this series. This is a side of Molly we haven't seen and it just goes to show she can probably write just about anything and it still be amazing and captures her fans and I'm sure this book will bring in a new set of fans as well.

Wow, this story was so much more than what I expected. The suspense, the twists and turns, the story, the writing, the emotions. This book has it all! I loved it! I am still almost at a loss for words. I feel like i can not come up with a review that does this story justice! GET IT and thank me later!

Possibly, quite possibly BETTER than Taking Chances!! When I found out that Molly was releasing a new book this month, I had to jump on that band wagon. I mean, it’s Molly McAdams. When I sat down to review this book, I went in with an open mind that anything could happen with this book. I didn’t know what would happen, I didn’t even read the blurb on this one. I just went in almost blind and I was so glad that I did! The anticipation with each page turn was incredible. The characters in this story will gut you. You will feel anger. You will feel happiness. You will feel saddened. You will want to fuss at Molly McAdams. You will want to cherish the her and the book forever. That’s how emotional this book is. The theme of the story is not one you will take lightly, but you have to push on and find out what happens next. The twist of the story will hit you like a truck and leave you with your mouth on the floor and your thoughts in a whirlwind. The ending of the book will leave you wanting more. The ending of the book will leave you in a trance. The ending of the book will have you thinking deep thoughts and wondering how Molly can top this one. At least all that happened to me. It was an experience I won’t soon forget. It leaves me debating on if I love this story more or less than Taking Chances. It’s definitely a hard to decision to make. I think, in the end, I have to say that this book is so much more than what Taking Chances was and I love it so much more in a whole different way, while Taking Chances will still be a top favorite for me. This is a book that a 5 star review will not do it justice. This is a book that deserves more than simple words can say. Molly McAdams, you have created a novel that is beyond incredible. You have created a book that left this fan (and hopefully new fans too!) speechless. You did a magnificent job on this one and I am anxiously awaiting the release of the next book in the series! *This book was provided for review. No money was exchanged. All opinions are my own.*

The moment you start reading a book, and think if I don’t read faster I’m going to explode! Molly has written another book that makes me think I have it all figured out, then BAM! In your face! Twist, curves, and pure madness is how this book went! One minute my mouth is hanging wide open, and the next I feel myself cheering for the dark side. Everyone girl wants a devil, and every guy wants his perfect blackbird. Every girl wants to resist that devil, but sometimes there is just something about the dark you can’t resist! As always, Molly delivers a book written from the heart. You don’t want to miss how the Blackbird and devil go toe to toe to find their endings!
