Tallulah is a happy, bubbly, excitable girl or at least that's what everyone else thinks. Inside... Inside she's a mess. She's holding it together, but she's got a secret, a secret that she can't tell anyone. A secret that makes her skin crawl and leaves her crying herself to sleep. She tells herself she'll be okay. That she can cope. She can forget about how damaged she is. Then she meets Jarrod, her best friend's boyfriend's best friend and he's everything she's ever wanted except she isn't the girl she used to be and now she doesn't think she deserves what she once wanted.

Author Interview:
When did you start writing?
I’m not sure I have a real answer for that. I’ve been writing for what feels like forever. I used to write in my journal as a kid but my life was nowhere near as exciting as my imagination. If my mum had read my journal she would have grounded my arse so many times and for things I hadn’t done too. I wrote Harry Potter fan fiction when I was in University. I was a right geek. But I’ve been a published author since 2015.
What is Damaged Intimacy all about?
Brokenness. It’s about hiding pain underneath smiles. It’s about keeping pain a secret. It’s about learning to let someone in when everything inside of you is screaming not to because you’re so scared of being hurt.
Is it going to be part of a series?
Yes, there will be three parts. Damaged Intimacy, Entangled Intimacy and Forceful Intimacy. I’m really excited about this series.
Tell us about the characters?
Well, it’s mostly about Tallulah and Jarrod, two characters who readers of my previous books have already met. Tallulah is bubbly, excitable, seemingly very happy but she has a secret. One she hasn’t shared even with her best friends. This is her story. 100% I mean Jarrod is in there too but it’s about her.
Is Jarrod going to be a book boyfriend to remember?
Hell yes. He’s hot. He’s a small business owner. He owns several restaurants in London with one of his best friends and he is fine! Readers will love him – I promise. He’s a piece of manly goodness.
Tell us about your other books.
All my books are based in London. It might have something to do with the fact I’m a British author. I have this whole thing going on, British author with British spellings, British characters, in a British city. It’s about as British as you can get. My books are all related so you’ll see some characters in this series that have been in previous ones. Landon and Aurora from the Rules Series will make repeat appearances. Nearly every character you meet in one of my books will get their own story eventually. After all, everyone deserves a HEA.
Do you ever get READERS block?
Yes. Sometimes, I can’t read. It’s usually when I’m right at the end of a story and I just don’t want it to end. I have to put the book down so it will last just a little while longer.
What has been the hardest thing to write so far?
That’s a hard one, there’s been a few scenes I’ve struggled with. This book was a challenge because I had to try and emphasise with something I’ve never experienced. No spoilers though he he. In my History Series, there were a couple of scenes that challenged me. There was an argument that I think I should have done better with and I keep thinking one day I’ll get that one right. I’ll work it out. Emotionally, that series dealt with some difficult stuff so I found it quite sad to write. I cried, he he.
What do you do when you’re not writing?
Read. Mostly I read. I also founded a company called Author Friends With Benefits. It supports authors to be the best they can be; helps with promotions, editing and all the bits and pieces you need to write a book.

“I’m wrecked, ruined, destroyed, and in awe.” – #1 New York Times bestselling author, Rachel Van Dyken

The next captivating installment in New York Times bestselling author Molly McAdams’s Redemption series.
As the Princess of the Irish-American Mob, there’s no shortage of men ready to help guard and protect me. To slowly suffocate me to the point of seeking freedom—a place where I can breathe.
Kieran Hayes has been saving me for as long as I can remember. It’s in his blood, and one of the many reasons I fell in love with him. Until my favorite trait became his biggest flaw, making me resent the man I love. An unwavering warrior, his love for me has been shrouded by those instincts.
Save Lily. Protect Lily. Hide Lily. Cage Lily.
What I wasn’t prepared for was Dare—the man who would set my world on fire with just one touch. He saw straight through to my soul, as though he knew I was desperate for freedom, and silently demanded my heart from the beginning.
And I didn’t expect Dare to be Demitri Borello—the reason for so many deaths in my family. A man who will take my life the moment he finds out who I am.
Despite it all, I’ll love him until that moment comes.
A fire will die if there is no oxygen for it to consume. Ours is rapidly stealing every last breath we can sacrifice to it.

“Nothing’s getting past me,” I assured her.
Her breath washed over my lips as I leaned in to kiss her again when she whispered, “I thought we were talking about you.”
I paused for a few seconds, then looked up into her hazel eyes. “What?”
“I think I’m in danger from you.”
My brow pulled tight, and I forced out a low, frustrated laugh. “Me.”
She nodded again, the movement of her head so slow as her eyes explored mine. “I need you to let me go for so many reasons, but I easily forget why when you don’t. I think there was a reason neither of us crossed that invisible barrier before today. Because being in your arms?” She hesitated, her tongue quickly darting out to wet her lips. “Trust me, it’s dangerous.”
A weight pressed down on my chest, making it hard to breathe. Because damn it if she wasn’t right.
There were dozens of girls over the years who’d meant nothing more than a night. Maybe two. Not one could I remember the name of, most I couldn’t remember their face.
Then there’d been one who I would’ve sold my soul for if I could’ve had one more night with her.
My days with her had been everything. A slow burn that had built over time until I hadn’t been able to get enough of her. Until she’d meant too much.
And there hadn’t been a girl since.
Not a second glance. Not a thought. Nothing.
Until one morning at Brooks a few years ago.
But there was nothing slow about the thoughts and needs for the girl pressed against me. There hadn’t been since the very first morning I’d found her staring at a mirror like it had the power to destroy her world. Like that possibility fascinated her.
Fuck, if I didn’t need to find out why.
Dangerous was exactly what we were. Only she had no idea just how much.
My gut twisted as unwanted thoughts entered my mind, but I pushed them away. Because I knew what I needed to do. I needed to let her go and force myself not to follow.
But when there’s a flicker of light in your life after so much darkness, it’s impossible to stay away.
And this girl burned so damn bright.
Calling to me and beckoning me toward her, and I knew no matter how many times I let her slip away, I would follow her just to catch her again.
I brushed my thumb across her full lips. “Goddamn firefly.”

A powerhouse romantic suspense that will have you questioning your morals and second guessing your view on love.

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.
