"Once, I would never have imagined myself here. But I’m settled now. In a place I love, in a home I renovated, spending time with new friends I adore, and working a job that fulfills me. I am reconciling the past and laying the groundwork for the future.
Then Garrett Frost moves in next door.
He’s obstinate and too bold, a raging force of nature that disrupts the careful order of my life. I recognize the ghosts that haunt him, the torment driving him. Garrett would be risky in any form, but wounded, he’s far more dangerous. I fear I’m too fragile for the storm raging inside him, too delicate to withstand the pain that buffets him. But he’s too determined…and too tempting.
And sometimes hope soars above even the iciest desolation.
Emotional and heartrending, Butterfly in Frost marks a brilliant return by global sensation Sylvia Day, the #1 international multimillion bestselling author of the Crossfire saga."
I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
” You’re looking at it in the wrong way.” His grip tightens. “You’re broken. I’m broken. We don’t throw the pieces away. We fit them together until they make something new.”
I think this quote is really helps sum up this story. Both characters are broken due to something in their past but they find a way to each other again. One of the biggest reasons I only gave this book 4 stars is because I wish it was a full length novel. 187 pages was not enough for me. I wanted this story to go deeper and explore all of the history between Teagan and Garrett. I have read all of Sylvia Day’s crossfire novels so I was really excited that she was coming out with another book. However, this felt like not enough.
This book was full of love passion and second chances. Again, I really wish it had been a full novel so it would have gone deeper into Teagan and Garrett’s past. I felt that there wasn’t enough explanations and back story to truly do them both justice. We got a glimpse of it, but I there could have been so much more depth to the story. I have always loved Sylvia Day’s writing style especially her character development but I felt that these characters were not as developed as they could have been.
Teagan and Garret’s story was beautiful and I think the support of her best friend Roxy was amazing. I just finished the book aching for more.
During the day, I am the Sales Manager for Blackwing and after work, you will find me playing with my dog and/or reading! I also love spending time with my family and boyfriend, doing yoga, cooking, working out, watching the San Francisco 49ers, and during the summer you can find me salmon fishing.
My favorite book genres are Romance, Contemporary Romance, Fiction, and Suspense, Christian Suspense. Sometimes I dabble in other genres depending on my mood or the author.
