Sunny Shelly’s Review: Butterfly, by Nelle L’Amour


BUTTERFLY by Nelle L’ Amour is LIVE!


From Nelle L’Amour, a #1 Amazon All-Star Author and USA Today and New York Times bestseller, a new steamy and suspenseful age gap romance with a twist you won’t see coming.


When I was asked to interview Roman Hurst, I thought I was prepared.

But how could I be prepared for the gorgeous man awaiting me?

Nor was I prepared when he offered me a job. To be his muse.

And I definitely wasn’t prepared to fall in love with him.

A man fifteen years my senior. Who is hiding a dark secret.

A secret so devastating, it could rip us apart.

No, I wasn’t prepared for that at all.


I wasn’t expecting this colorful breath of fresh air to fly into my life.

To wrench me from my dark cocoon.

Make me feel things I haven’t felt in years.

Sofi Lockhart. My beautiful, feisty butterfly.

I’m going to catch her. Make her mine.

But there are predators out there who want to shatter her wings.

To tear us apart.

No, I wasn’t expecting that at all.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 3 Stars

Oh man, I really had high hopes for Butterfly, and it came up a bit short for me. I loved Nelle’s Undying Love duet and her Unforgettable trilogy. Based on the blurb for Butterfly, I thought this book would be a similar emotional rollercoaster… I liked it, but I didn’t love it.

Roman had some serious Christian Gray vibes, and it took me a long time to warm up to him as a tortured hero and not just think he was a bossy jerk. I really wasn’t feeling the instalove connection with Roman and Sofi and was taken aback when she suddenly realized she was in love with him.

The twist in this story was good — I didn’t expect that — but it kinda came out of left field. Sofi does bring Roman back to life, in a sense, and that transition evolved nicely.

Overall, Butterfly is an intense age-gap billionaire boss romance with some twists and turns. I just had higher hopes for this one and didn’t fall for the H/h as much as I would have liked to.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
