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.

As a huge fan of Sylvia Day's romances, I was certainly down at the temporary hiatus she took from any new releases. I spent most of my time binge reading other new adult romances, re-reading some of my favorites from Sylvia Day (for the most part that being the Crossfire series), and wishing that I'd see some news of an upcoming release soon. When it was announced not long ago that Butterfly in Frost would be hitting shelves in August 2019, I was pumped! I awaited eagerly to see a synopsis pop up, a release date, cover art, absolutely anything really. Finally, a few months ago we were greeted with the gorgeous cover art for Butterfly in Frost, and after gazing at that beautiful cover and reading that synopsis over and over again, I was sold! I needed to read this book ASAP, and Thomas Allen & Son generously sent a copy over for my enjoyment!

Butterfly in Frost gave me the dose of Sylvia Day's writing that I was desperately missing. It reminded me of her amazing character building, her fierce heroes and heroines, and her emotionally driven plots. Oh man! To say I loved Butterfly in Frost would be a severe understatement.  I adored this book to pieces! I loved Teagan and Garrett, loved revisiting the world of the Crossfire series once more, and just overall adored the glimpses at the realistic pain and growth both lead characters encounter on their personal journeys. It was an incredibly sweet and heart-wrenching novel, and I couldn't help but wish it were longer than it's mere 200 pages.

Fans of Sylvia Day will love diving back into her work with Butterfly in Frost!
