When we first met Ten/Stark I knew he was going to be an interesting character. When he basically tanked his career, it was hilarious, yet you knew it was going to be a long road to recovery for him. Flash forward and he's now working on a recovery tour, and is in New York with his uncle and cousin, trying to atone for his sins and lay low. When he meets Violet who basically has no idea who he is and hates Ten, he's intrigued and wants to get to know her more since he feels no pressure from her.
Watching Ten become Stark and who he was (who he really was) with Violet was amazing. He seemed to relax and be himself and find his love for what he did, and what he wanted again. His connection with Violet was strong and he became so protective of her, especially when he learned about her RA and her struggles. I loved how strong Violet was too. She struggled with her disease and her insecurity within herself, but she got up everyday, and did what she needed to do to survive, and never asked for help. When Stark came into her life, she was shocked that someone like him would want something to do with her, but he kept pushing her way into her life, and she let her walls down and she found comfort in him that she never really had before, except with her brother Vance.
These two truly are stronger together than they are apart, but with Stark keeping something huge from her, you know it's going to blow up at some point. I hated how it all came to light, and what happened to them for a while, but I'm glad that Nate was still around for Violet, and how Stark still found himself and continued on his path. He may have gone down a horrible road before Violet being in his life, but with her help, and reconnecting with his family he truly was brought back to his roots and found his inner peace and found his love again. I loved watching Stark take back control of his career, and fight for his girl in the end.
This was a beautiful love story of redemption, acceptance, and finding your soul mate. I truly adored Stark/Ten and Violet's story and as much as I enjoyed it, I really didn't want it to end, I felt as if they had so much more for us, but the epilogue was amazing. I really enjoyed the secondary characters of Nate and Vance who brought humor into this book, and helped these two see things when they were too stubborn to realize them. If you're looking for a great New Adult romance with a twist, I highly suggest picking up Butterfly by Cambria Hebert today, I couldn't put this book down, I just wish it was a bit longer!
The story flows but not sending off any chills, thrills, or feels. I’m disappointed because I love the cover and title, but it’s not wowing me. This is the first book I’ve read by this author and while her writing style is good it’s not exceptional. I love the premise not the execution. The pace was too slow. I understand the appeal of Violet’s lifestyle, what I’m not feeling is this instant connection of attraction. They were complex and developed characters with many qualities defining them and these qualities transitioned well in the story.
I appreciated Ten’s sincerity and concern for Violet. His ability to recognize he needed to change his aggressive behavior was a great quality. He seemed genuine but at the same time Violet seemed like a project to focus his time on. They balanced each other by providing needs unaware to both of them. Violet’s need for physical support and Ten’s need to protect and care for someone other than himself. Ten’s transformation came with clarity and new perspective thus becoming the theme.
The different stages of the relationship transitioned quickly. From the point of introduction to the point of intimacy was too advanced. The insta-love trope is a hard sell for me. Considering the other elements this story had, built into these characters lives, it fell short for me. Olivia had all the ingredients to build a great premise but I still was not able to fall in love with it.
The idea of a millionaire pop star hiding from the general public isn't difficult to picture. I can't even imagine the pressure the must endure. Oh, the fame and fortune is great but the pressure, the stress and the lack of privacy? Maybe notsomuch. I think Cambria nails it in this book. You can feel Ten's frustration and irritation.
The mind of an artist is a complicated place. Add in a chronic illness and the craziness of college and holy moly it makes MY brain hurt. But Violet just takes it as it comes and goes with the flow.
Put these two together and the reader can feel the love developing as their relationship grows. I would recommend this to anyone that loves Cambria's writing and quite honestly to anyone that hasn't.
