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 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.
[I received a digital ARC for an honest review]
Lock by Molly McAdams is an intense and emotionally packed novel. It was dark and depressing and beautiful.
Einstein is a computer genius, who’s been in a relationship that went downhill not long after it started. It’s emotionally and physically abusive but things would only be worse if she walked away. When she is finally free she is scarred but now I can finally be with a man she really loves. Maverick fell for Einstein the moment she walked into his life and his waited patiently by the sidelines. Now that he can have her he doesn’t want to hold back but takes things slow and at the pace that Einstein needs it to be. Just as everything seems to be going good for them, a life-changing event that Einstein keeps to herself tears them apart. She pushes him away in every way she knows how and it’s gut-wrenching to watch both of them being such emotional pain.
The only thing I disliked about Lock was the fact that each chapter jump to a different point in time. At points It felt like Whiplash, just as I got comfortable with where the story was going we would get move to a different point in time. Eventually I got use to it, but I felt like it broke up the fluidity of the story line.
Lock is a story about an all-consuming love that won’t let you give up on it no matter what. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series and hoping it’s about Diggs 😍
“Maverick and I weren’t anything, but we were everything.”
“There had always been an undeniable , inexplicable pull between Maverick and I. Always.”
