BUTTERFLY: A Standalone Romantic Suspense by Nelle L'Amour ~ Book Review


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.

Okay here goes, I liked this story but I didn't love it. I had really high hopes for this read since I know so many book friends that enjoyed the authors THAT MAN SERIES, and honestly I am surprised this is the first time I am reading any of Nelle L'Amour's work. 

Roman is a reclusive fashion designer, he's so reclusive no one knows what he looks like....yes, this completely boggled my mind but I moved past it. He meets Sofi when she shows up to do an exclusive interview with him, this meeting was way to FSOG reminiscent for me in more ways than one...again I moved past it. Roman is taken with Sofi right away and calls her Butterfly, I found this to be a really cute term of endearment, so he offers her a job as his Muse and of course she accepts. This story has a LOT of angst, some of it felt unnecessary, and I wonder if there wasn't so much going on and we only had one or even two hurdle(s) to get past I may have enjoyed the story more.

Sofi and Roman's story is an age gap romance with a slow burn, even though they both have feelings for one another things don't progress for a very long time.  They have good chemistry together and you can feel it before they even get to that point.

I would recommend this book to those that enjoy Slow Burn Romances, Age Gap Romances, or Office/Workplace Romances.

Happy Reading!!!
