When I saw that Day had a new book coming out, I asked my friend Lola if she wanted to read and review for us. Lola is a huge fan of Sylvia Day. Lola also runs MileHighKinkBookClub. Definitely give her a follow on all the things. Take it away Lola-
Suspenseful. Gripping. Must Read. Psychological. Intense. Dark. Haunting. I just finished reading and I still feel a prickly sensation on the back of my neck. This is Butterfly in Frost by Sylvia Day.
The most anticipated read of the year is finally here and it’s everything I wanted and more than I expected. Day gifted us two stories in one by providing closure for one and introducing a whirlwind romance for new characters – Garrett Frost and Teagan Ramson.
Dr. Teagan Ramson, a gifted physician who specializes in cosmetic surgery, works for Eva Cross, yes that Eva. Together they are introducing a new skin care line in the Crossfire Empire. Eva Trammell Cross graces the pages but even she can’t steal this show – it’s all Teagan and Garrett.
“I’m going to become necessary to you”
Garrett Frost, a rock star painter and artist, is her sexy new neighbor. He is a rock and a light with a soft soul. Easily lovable. He is a haven and antidote for Teagan’s pain. He knows how to support her in her moments of despair. We all need a person who will encourage us, criticize us, and hold us accountable if we want to grow, that is. Garrett is that person for Teagan.
“I need you more than I need anything else. I’d even give up painting for you, if that’s what it takes”
In Japan, white butterflies symbolize the souls of departed loved ones. Fans of Day will feel the genuine warmth and crush of loss throughout the story. This is one of the rarest of book treats for a small package, i.e. a novella under 200 pages. It makes you feel excited to check in with old family and friends in the Crossfire World.
This is the book you will be thinking about days later wondering how all of it happen in 200 pages and leave such a profound feeling of WOW, JUST WOW. The story and its ending are astonishing. It’s so simple yet so complex. The romance is beautiful, sexy and slow burn steamy. But its ending is the Crème de la Crème. When you read it, you will be in a state of disbelief.
Butterfly in Frost is a message of hope, truth and encouragement. Teagan and Garret are each haunted with grief and it makes their instant connection so strong and powerful. In closing, you will find amazing characters, brilliant storytelling and a spectacular ending.
