Firstly I wish to thank Charlotte Cooper of Midaspr for inviting me the Blog Tour for Butterfly in Frost by Sylvia Day
From #1 New York Times bestselling phenomenon Sylvia Day comes a hotly anticipated and passionate new love story.
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.
HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
Set in a breath-taking location are the sort-after multi-millionaire houses that rarely come on the market but there is a new man moved in next door to Dr. Teagan Ransom, who was a celebrity cosmetic surgeon, and reality tv star. Teagan is far from confident after a rather bad break up from her previous marriage, and now suffering from severe depression. Her best friend lives across the street, who is desperate to fix Teagan up with a new fella.
When Garrett Frost, the new neighbour, literally runs into Teagan, sparks fly with an instant attraction to each other. What follows is a sensual and erotic story that just knocked me off my feet. Garrett Frost really knows how to take care of his body, he is on the outside confident, sexy and rather irresistible but he bears his own cross and Teagan is still far from being recovered, cocooned in a small group of people she can trust. Garrett is going to have to take things steady not to crush Teagan if she is ever to trust someone again.
What a brilliant story this is that is on an emotional scale that can shoot from one extreme to the other in just a sentence. I loved the descriptions of the paintings that Garrett had done in the past and present-day as his own moods changed. These made me feel more like I wasn’t as much getting into these characters minds and the mechanics of a relationship but more personal, their essence and vulnerabilities. I felt like I could hold their hearts and feel their passion but at other times feel them break.
The dark days of Teagan are captured perfectly, making her unrecognisable to the character that I had come to know but it is the reaction of other people too that gives the story such a real feel, very well done.
A beautifully written story, passionate and heartbreaking.
Thank you to Midaspr for a copy of this book which I have reviewed honestly.
