The final breathtaking installment in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Molly McAdams’s REBEL series.
Protecting people isn’t simply my job—it’s engrained in me.
It doesn’t atone for my countless sins.
There’s no washing the blood off my hands after a lifetime in the mob.
I just want to save those who can’t save themselves.
Then Sutton Larson came at me with diamond-encrusted heels.
She’s judgmental and guarded and the most infuriating woman I’ve ever met.
Gaining her trust is nearly impossible. Protecting her is anything but easy. When she becomes more than a job, our passion builds like a brutal storm—beautiful and consuming.
But we have an expiration date made of lies and betrayals and lethal games.
One we thought we could outlive.
And it’s taunting us for thinking we could.
My name’s Conor Kennedy. I’ve lost enough people in my life . . . I refuse to lose her.

The last book in Molly McAdams’ Rebel series is the story I’ve been waiting for ever since being introduced to the hunky and protective Conor Kennedy. Conor exudes strength and security, and while he has his own demons to contend with, he makes it his life’s duty to ensure other people’s safety, even if some tend to make his job more difficult than it should be with their standoffish behavior and lack of trust, like his newest charge, Sutton Larson – a woman who challenges him at every turn but also one who needs him more than she’s willing to admit.
Despite how Sutton behaved and treated Conor at the beginning of the story, I always knew there was a reason for her confrontational and conflicted attitude, so I trusted in McAdams’ ability to unravel Sutton’s defenses and allow Sutton to see that Conor is in her corner and has her and her daughter’s back at all times.
I can’t say that I blame Sutton for being guarded, for refusing to allow Conor to see beneath her perfectly coiffed exterior, until she’s ready. No one around her truly knows what fears plague her nor do they realize just how terrified she’s been due to her tunnel vision when it comes to her husband. And the relationship Sutton had with him illustrates just how different people can be behind closed doors, which means that her hackles are up and the only person who matters is her daughter.
It’s clear fairly early on that there was no limit to what Conor would do to keep Sutton and Lexi safe, and that’s important to know since there didn’t seem to be a limit to the struggles they endured, to the challenges they faced, or to the danger that threatened them. But it’s also in those tenuous and fearful moments that Conor and Sutton find more than a common ground, meaning that what started out as a job of protection turned into a connection where there was no limit to the passion shared…to the ability to let each other in…to the time spent together, exploring one another’s bodies, minds, and souls, despite their expiration date,
because, in Conor’s mind, there’s no limit to what he’s willing to do to keep Sutton…to protect her…to cherish her because he refuses to lose her like he’s seemed to have lost so many others he’s cared about.
A secondary character who stole my heart was Sutton’s daughter, Lexi. I absolutely loved her; she may only be 6 years old, but she’s more perceptive than anyone realizes and she’s a calm within the chaos that surrounds Sutton due to her inability to see things clearly. The scenes that Lexi is in, especially those with Conor, warmed my heart and made me swoon for how sweet they were to each other, and I definitely agree that Conor is a perfect Prince Charming.
I adore romantic suspense stories and Conor and Sutton’s book is quite the adrenaline rush because as secrets are revealed and threats become more real, characters’ emotions become heightened and the responsibility of keeping two people safe – individuals who have come to mean everything to Conor – there’s not a price he wouldn’t pay to protect who he’s declared as his.
I thoroughly enjoyed this entire series, but I do have to say that Limit is my favorite. I loved how deep McAdams delved to help readers understand Conor and Sutton and the choices they’ve made, the blend of suspense, steam, and heartfelt moments that brought the characters closer together, and the sweet little girl who stole the hearts of all those around her simply because her innocence and her awestruck expressions made everyone’s days brighter, even when the drama that surrounded them threatened to consume them.
4.5 Poison Apples
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 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.
