Publisher's Summary

A Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Washington Post, and Amazon Charts best seller

From number one New York Times best-selling 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 number-one international multimillion best-selling author of the Crossfire saga.

Overall ok but lacks development. Potential is there

*spoilers ahead*
Storyline: At first I was intrigued by Frost’s attraction to Teagan’s personally and caught me of guard but I chalked it up to live at first sight and I was willing to let that slide. I figured he would eventually explain why and as the story moved along, that explanation never came until the very last possible event.

The storyline ends with the explanation, so you spend the entire read guessing what’s happened in both of the main character’s past that has made them so broken. Apart from knowing that Frost lost his son not so long ago, you have no clue why Teagan is so broken and that makes it hard to understand her and love her character. It does however make up for it when the truth is revealed.

I wish the author would have developed the backbone of the story a little more. It was difficult for me to finish the book the book way it did. I felt that when the truth was revealed that’s where things should’ve of picked up, not stopped.... The book ends here.

Performances: I had a hard time with Emma Wilder’s rendition of Teagan’s character. It was very breathy and made it hard to listen to. Was it a audio/recording issue ? Maybe.... but I found it took away from the story. Her rendition of Frost’s voice though was very raspy and totally sexy.

Joe Arden as always was phenomenal.

Overall: I was surprised by the ending and tormented by the fact that it ended there. I’m hoping Sylvia comes out with book two.

Sylvia day is always a good read

the only thing that I was not happy with in the book was the narrator changed close to the end of the book and I lost focus on the characters as the voice didn't match anymore.

Such a good quick read

Love how it incorporated part of the Cross Fire series. It was such a fun and easy listen with an incredible twist! Highly recommend!

Good -- until the plot 'twist'

Enjoyed the story until the last two chapters. The plot twist felt contrived and was a complete 180 to the story. I didn't buy it at all, especially given the characters' behaviors throughout chapters 1-14. Completely changed my opinion of the story. The author needed to add more clues and some of the earlier dialogue and behaviors ended up making no sense based on the reveal.

Wanted to like this but was disappointed.

Not the best Sylvia Day book

I have listened to most of her books and the narrator on this one leaves some to be desired. The story line just doesn't grab my attention like her other books. I actually was listening and had to switch to another book. I listened for about two hours or halfway thru and just decided it wasn't worth the other two hours. Unfortunate for me, I pre-ordered this book and was out of the country when it came in and I cant return it.

Loved It!!

You can't compare this to Cross Fire, It is completely different and it drives me nuts when people do that. I go into each book with an open mind.

I loved the narrators, I would of loved to hear more Joe Arden but I felt like Emma Wilder was perfect for her character.

I loved that we got updates on the Crossfire main characters, That was an added bonus. I love Ava!!

Without giving anything away I loved the end. I wasn't excepting it for some reason.

It wasn't what I excepted at all and I wish it would of been a lot longer just because I love Sylvia Day and her books. I recommend it. It had just the right amount of love, story, and lust. It wasn't missing anything and the end summarized everything.

The entire "female" performance is in a whisper.

narrator really needs to have a stronger voice. you really can only hear the male part well.

Not. A. Winner!

I could not wait for this to end! I did not connect to either of the main characters. The narration of the male voice was a bit freaky to me, and not in a cool way. The swearing was unnecessary and added no excitement. Not hot. Not sexy.

Butterfly

Don’t recommend this one. Romantic passages are just too graphic. Difficult to feel the passion amidst torrid descriptions of sex organs on display. The ‘mystery’ seems to play second fiddle to the mish-mash of sweaty dialogue.

loved!!

OMG!!! I totally didn't see that twist!! This book was so good!! I am speechless and am trying not to say anything to give this away! This book is a must in my opinion. My only complaint is that I didn't want it to end, wanted more!! I believe there was so much more that could be added. Maybe it will be a series??

Emma Wilder and Joe Arden are great!

Listen twice

This is one of those stories you'll want to hear twice. Especially after the ending, I won't post any spoilers though. I do like the fact that Sylvia touched on the grief of losing someone close to you, not simply right after but the struggles that come months later. The narrative was excellent and I really enjoyed this book.

Confusing

First, I've never listened to any of this author's work before so had nothing to go on as far as the style of her writing or familiarity of other characters mentioned. I fast forwarded a lot of the story because it was boring listening to all of the unnecessary descriptions of clothing, graphic sexual scenes and physical attributes of the characters. Ok so he's hot, get on with it. Geez. And by the end when the whole "twist" comes in, I was just confused. There's nothing that ties all of it together. One minute they don't know each other at all, the next they're getting down and dirty then bam- they had a past? And did she remember or did she have ptsd amnesia or something?! It just didn't flow, make any sense. Usually there are references to the past that make sense, ties things together but this was not like that. There wasn't any depth to her past because apparently she didn't want to ever talk about it. Left the listener just wondering. When the conclusion comes, I just thought, wth? Where did that come from? I don't know if I would try any of her other works or not at this point. All of the graphic sex descriptions in these stories are really getting old and boring. These writers need to come up with better storylines instead of all the sex fillers.

So disappointing

Struggled to stay connected- very unlike her other books. Won't be purchasing another book from her if this what the newer stuff is like.
