Title: Bulletproof Butterfly
Author: Anna Brooks
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: November 16, 2017
I wasn’t a rookie, but I made a mistake because I was selfish, impulsive, and headstrong.
I was also in love.
My desire for her overwhelmed me. Consumed me. Distracted me.
To protect her, I stood motionless as my partner pried her from the security of my arms. I watched as she fought his hold. I even listened when she screamed that she hated me.
For years I’ve been patient, I’ve been smart, and I’ve gone by the book. But now… it’s finally over.
It’s time to get my girl back.
When I show up to reclaim what’s mine, I discover she’s not ready to forgive me quite yet… but that’s okay, because I have no problem reminding her just how good it used to be, even if I have to show her over and over again.
What I do have a problem with is the guy who’s been trying to take my place. Because here’s the thing, I’ve waited too long to have her in my arms again to have anybody stand in my way… and I’m done following the rules.

Bulletproof Butterfly was a quick read. I didn’t know that even though this is a stand alone novel reading the previous books would give clarity. I think that’s where my 3.5 review comes from. I had a hard time with following what was happening and where the danger stemmed from. With that said there were some very promising points in this novel and that was Jay.
It was a bit of a struggle getting into this story and I really couldn’t click with Livvie’s character at all. I loved the parts when we get to see Jay in action. That man is a swoon worthy, alpha hotty and I loved how serious he was about his love for Livvie. He had to protect her after she walked right into the path of danger.
It would take years for Jay to eliminate the threat and the more we got into the back story the more I understood that his need to get the bad guy wasn’t only to protect his girl but deeper reasons. Livvie was not understanding at all, I felt her character really didn’t love this great man as much as she should have and the sacrifice he made. As I said I just couldn’t connect with her at all and I really tried. Jay’s love was unconditional and she put him to the test too many times but I love that he never wavered.
There’s danger, vengeance and a lot steam in this book. I like a bit of drama in my stories and I did get that. The connection I got reading about Jay were the parts I really enjoyed. All in all in was a decent read.
