about a submissive seriously submissive young woman named Butterfly, who is freed from her submission by a talented Native American sculptor named Bryan They meet when he s working on pieces commissioned by her Master Once they leave together, Butterfly has to acclimate herself to the outside world again, begin to reclaim her former identity of Sylvia, and decide who she is and wants to be now Butterfly Sylvia and Bryan are very interesting characters I loved their relationship and watching it develop I wish the story was longer, because the ending felt very rushed and I thought we would follow them further in their relationship Reaction This is a very unusual and very powerful story It is also one that I find hard to categorize the heavy focus on the self healing process makes itgeneral fiction and I think some mainstream audiences would enjoy it, however there are definite erotica components While it s described as a BDSM romance, that sbecause of the situation Butterfly is in at the beginning of the story than anything else After she leaves Gary s, Bryan decides they should abstain from sex completely, since he doesn t want her to think she owes him sex or that he s her new Master Once they do start making love, there aren t really any BDSM components.Others have said this and I 100% agree the first half was unbelievably disturbing Utterly and completely disturbing It was difficult and uncomfortable to read I felt so absolutely helpless Master, i.e Gary, is a sadistic, cruel, and manipulative bastard and oh how happy I was when Bryan finally punched him However, as much as I hated completely abhorred reading that first section, it was also necessary and integral to the story There is no way one could appreciate Butterfly s transformation and what Bryan freed her from had we not been given such a vivid look at what her life had been like with Gary The second half of the book is the most enjoyable, because that s when we get to see Sylvia and Bryan s romantic relationship really begin to develop Our Heroine The authors had a delicate line to walk when it came to Butterfly becoming Sylvia, but in my mind they achieve a perfect balance of having her transformation be slow enough to feel authentic, but fast enough to enable us to see development and not grow frustrated or impatient The pace of it felt right At the end of Butterfly Unpinned Sylvia is not 100% which realistically, she shouldn t be yet however there is no doubt that she is on her way there.I liked that while she relies heavily on Bryan and he is a key player in her recovery, there is no doubt that she is the major force in her own healing There are times when she and Bryan are even briefly at odds and yet she perseveres and succeeds It was a good feeling, to beat her wings and find out they were strong enough to lift her and hold her aloft p176 Our Hero From the beginning, Bryan is a fantastic hero and I loved his feelings towards and treatment of Butterfly While he s a strong, independent, sensual, and possessive hero, he at no times feels offensively alpha the contrast between him and Gary further reinforces this impression He is so sweet and tender with her, while also not treating her as if she is an untouchable and fragile piece of glass on display in a museum He sees her as an individual as her own person, her own woman and wants to help her see herself that way too Bryan s feelings for and actions towards Sylvia are truly lovely, but I appreciated that we are show he s not perfect and has human failings like anyone else As Sylvia becomes stronger andindependent, Bryan goes through his own internal conflict he wanted to help Sylvia for altruistic reasons, but he also has feelings for her and likes the fact that he was able to play hero and save her He wants to be the one who continues to protect her, the one she turns to when she needs help and he wants her to still have that need She breathed slowly, searching for words You ve set me free, and I can t be caged again He reached out and touched her hair lightly The tension in his face relaxed a little, but his eyes were still intense I know that I just want to protect you, to keep you from being hurtp175 Criticism My main criticism is the rushed ending, which I mentioned at the beginning It left me feeling like the brakes were put on all of a sudden and I hadn t been expecting them yet Also, part of Bryan s development in the first half is his self reflection on his own desires that arise from observing Master s setup He questions what he does or does not and should or should not find arousing I found this interesting both for his character and the story, but the subject was dropped in the second half and there was no further development Bottom Line It was utterly wonderful and one of those reads I classify as a hidden gem It s a surprisingly powerful and emotional story If it weren t for some of theexplicit scenes that are clearly erotica, I would recommend this book to all my non romance reading friends as well One of My Favorite QuotesYou re a lot stronger than you know She offered a weak smile and slipped behind the curtain and into the tiny puffs of steam filling the small space The old shower was loud, so he felt safe in saying the rest of his thoughts before joining her Once you realize how strong you are, will you still need me He stepped into the warm water She had her back against the tiles, her face in profile, her jaw somehow softer now Maybe not, she whispered His heart plummeted to his knees She faced him Opened her arms to him But I ll want you, she added I think I ll always want you Jesus, you scared me And she had The fear that she d grow strong and leave him to explore her new self, her new world without him scared him shitless Some days I think I need youthan you need me He couldn t bring himself to admit that out loud He wondered if she could sense it, tell by the way he crushed her body against his and breathed in the smell of her hair Once he returned with the sheets and a blanket, she rolled off the bed and helped him with the bedding Then he lay down and opened his arms to her She climbed into his embrace Bryan stayed awake until he heard her breathing steadily When you find your wings, don t fly away, he whispered p172 Read my review on the Fiction Vixen website.

those lazy afternoons when machinery fails me Do I have to channel my excitement through the food network Nigella Lawson does entice the senses at times with her gooey chocolate cakes and butterscotch sauces Why God Why Gary and his clique of four lusciously curved submissives were incredibly enticing Initially amidst the whimpering of ecstasies, blood gushed through my tethering veins as Jasmine was punished for her misdemeanors The liberation of Butterfly from a fearful sub to a loveable partner of the Navajo carpenter Bryan was alluring, although I am not a huge romance fan I must say, it was quite a tedious job to free herself from her possessive Master Yet, through the rendered blowjobs services, whippings and ruffled pleasures, I merrily munched on a pack of crisps rather than devouring a sauvignon Blanc When Butterfly moans or wiggles beneath pushing her bottom towards Bryan s muscular legs, why doesn t it make me cross my legs Why is this misery bestowed upon my irresistible soul Butterfly a.k.a Sylvia tries to reach her parents, Bryan s closeness to grandmother Yawns.Sylvia s budding romantic overtures Yawns.Jeez I seem to be getting a bit drowsy Eureka Eureka The source of my recurring yawns Too much of emotional hullabaloo overshadowing sinister actions I feel like Archimedes, except the running naked part too many laws sanctioned for that crap.If it were not for the hard core sexual masochist actions this would be a sugary Hallmark movie with white horses running in a clover field The trepidation is over and I see sunlight once again Now, let me take a peek at theshopping cart 1.5 stars First half of the story WARNING SPOILERS I liked the begging of the story I got the impression that it will be dark, twisted and maybe emotional I got the same impression from the book description, too I was loving the story the first few chapters Which were about a woman who is either being kept as a slave or is there willingly as a slave It was hard

the story I got the impression that it will be dark, twisted and maybe emotional I got the same impression from the book description, too I was loving the story the first few chapters Which were about a woman who is either being kept as a slave or is there willingly as a slave It was hard to tell She have been living with her master for 5 years She kept saying she s there because she wanted to be, needed, but after few conversations between her master and some of his buddies, I though He really did a number on her Who would want that He treated them like they weren t even human, but some disgusting creatures who are good for only one thing And yes, she didn t like the thing he did, most of the time she was scared out of her mind to make a wrong step, because of the punishment that would fallow Still, she kept saying she needed this Everytime he was with her, he made sure to remind her that he helped saved her, that no one forced her to come to him Later, you find out that the reason she is there is because of her parents Apparently she got tired of never reaching their expectations, never being good enough She wanted to be free That should have been the first warning to drop the book, but I still had no clue where the story was heading, so I kept reading Her master is one mean MF His punishment are absolutely brutal There was a scene where he punished one of the girls for lying to him I literally wanted to trow up And the girls reaction afterwards just broke my heart How can you possibly want that, I thought And then it came to me Those girls were so far gone in their heads, that they didn t even realized that line between fungames and abuse, have been crossed looooong time ago He have shaped them exactly the way he wanted them to be.So, while all this abuse going on in his mansion, there is a guy working there He have been hired to make their sculptures He sees those girls wondering around, bringing him food and drinks, always half naked Before he started this job, he got an email from this master guy, explaining to him the slave situation As he worked there, day in and they out, making sculptures, he developed feelings for one of the girls He starts thinking about saving her, because he senses that what is going on is not alright The problem is, the master is not about to let her just walk away, after all this work he put into her Here, I thought that the story is going to be amazing I imagined him struggling to find a way to get her out of there, maybe her master finding out about his plans and making his and hers lifes a living hell Even if they manage to escape, the master won t rest until he hunts them down That s not what happen at all.In the book description it says To rescue her, Bryan isthan willing to lay everything on the line But simply walking away isn t as easy as it seems Sure it is Ask the very same Bryan But before I get to the easy part Master finds out about Bryan s feeling for his butterfly and gets pissed They make a bet Bryan offers all his money to him in order to buy her out He doesn t have a lot, but it s all he has They both agree that after one week, the butterfly will make decision herself, if she wants to leave or stay At this point, master dude feeling full of him self, is sure that she will never leave because he did a brilliant job at mind screwing her One week passes by, decision time Of course butterfly says she wants to leave To make itdifficult on them, master takes his girls to the dungeon, ties them to the wall, with the masks covering their faces, lines up his buddies and orders them to start whipping the girls There is a lot of screaming and crying going on I got the drama part of it, but I didn t get how it s suppose to be difficult for him to pick her out So, he walks by, cups her and asks if she want to leave with him She says yes and they leave The master is pissed, threatening him, telling him that he will make sure that Bryan will never be able to get a job, not only in this city, but in the whole state Sucks, because he is broke as it is Second half of the story At this point I thought Here we go Let the hunt begin But the story took completely different direction and made less and less sense, with every page I turned I think it s important to mention that butterfly has a phobia of open spaces, she never goes outside They run out, get in to his car and ride into the sunset Story should have ended here, because what followed, made no f ing sense The rest of the story became about how good she was at cooking and cleaning Then there was all this big thing about his grandfather dying, his mother being a drag addict He decides to take a 9h trip back home, to say goodby to his grandfather Butterfly faints completely into the background Even though half of the story is still told from hers pov, it s sooo boring She is cooking for him, cleaning, talking to his dog On the way to his birthplace there is a lot of talk about his culture, the language they speak, him stressing about her not liking the place, because his ex didn t It really felt like it took nine hours to read it just about their trip alone.They get there The grandfather dies, so there is all this fuss about how sad they are, funeral arrangements and so on Butterfly is cooking and cleaning again, and babysitting his cousins kids You are doing fine Cooking and cleaning are important Besides, you have that rabbit to take care of Bryan doing plumbing and work around the house They go camping phobia He does her ones in the back of the truck and the next time pushed her agains some rock She is all Oh, it s so good Do me like this and do me like that And he is all I ll do you like this and I ll do you like that I didn t get it From what I read, I wouldn t have given him the time of day.In the meanwhile, she s thinking back to how it was with her master He was rough and brutal and humiliated her in every way he could, she s glad she escaped But, at the same time she s ashamed that the memory of the things he did to her arouses her What the freaking fruit Then, there isdrama with his momma She offered some happy pills to her, Bryan gets all pissy Oh, and there is a baby rabbit that Bryan s dog dragged in one day, that butterfly is taking care of The furry thing dies, too Now Bryan has a dilemma Where to burry the damn thing that dog won t be able to dig it out and bring it back to Butterfly OMG At the end they get married whatever Her master never showed up with his army of perverts to kidnap her back which made me thing that the drama at the beginning of the story was completely unnecessary and misleading Bryan is still poor, no job, no money, no plan for the future No info about the girls left behind in the hands of the abuser Butterfly gets unpinned by cooking, cleaning, babysitting and taking care of the rabbit Out of the blue, on the last page, she calls her mother Hi mom, It s me Grudge forgotten The whole story was just a mess More like 3.5 stars But I couldn t bring myself to give it only 3 stars The beginning was a little off putting Butterfly and the other doves are exposed to some downright cruel punishment at the hands of

how the relationship between Bryan and Butterfly builds layer by layer The tension builds almost simultaneously between them It was great that they didn t just jump straight into an intense sexual relationship The author recognized that Butterfly was damaged and needed time Bryan was patient and understanding, but still flawed He didn t alph male her to death And he didn t have all the answers So thet had to work on it together Now, the bad..The ending seemed a little rushed to me I think we could have seen a littleprogress with Butterfly reaching out to her parents It was almost as if the author got tired of writing Also, there were a parts that didn t lend to the progression of the story It was almost like there was going to be an extension to the plot and then the authors changed their minds I was expectingof a conflict with Jasmine It seemed to be building to that, then just sort of fell off a cliff Overall, I enjoyed this book And I d be open tobooks by this author Butterfly

the real world that she couldn t function in She is taken to a beautiful Mansion by Gary who becomes her Master Her sole provider, the man that gives and the man that takes, and takes and takes The living conditions may look beautiful and welcoming on the surface, but there is a dark and twisted world within the walls Butterfly is happy She doesn t need, or want, the outside world, she doesn t like the open spaces, or people Those things will send her into a panic attack She is happiest doing nothing but serving Gary, not ever leaving the house Cocooned in her idea of safety.Gary uses those fears against her when she needs to be punished Putting her outside in the open, making her play her piano while people watch Lucky for Butterfly, this doesn t happen very often since she is content with her life of serving her Master and making him happy and staying out of trouble.Then Bryan shows up to do some wood carving for Gary The first time they lay eyes on each other, it s as if the world tips on it s axis for both of them.Butterfly begins to question herself and her servitude to Gary Bryan just wants to take her out of there Unpin the beautiful butterfly and make her his alone.The BDSM in this book, while at some points being extreme, it does become something beautiful between two people This was a sweet story once you got past the horrors of Gary The only thing that keeps this from being a 5 Star read for me was there was too much filler in the book, at about 75% i was ready for the story to get to the end It did pick back up some But I could have done without a lot of the over descriptiveness that surrounded the Grandfathers funeral, the traditions, his mother, etc But the book is still a solid 4 star read 3.5 starsThis story is set up with two distinct parts that revolve around the heroine s life Often, these divisions in storytelling seem abrupt, forced and awkward, but in this case it works well Butterfly Sylvia has some serious issues regarding

M s relationship is probably not going to appeal to several readers While many of acts are told from a distant past tense summary point of view, there is one particular act that is quite graphic and will exceed many readers tolerance levels It is not done salaciously, it is intrinsic to story, but nonetheless I feel it deserves comment as an FYI.One aspect of the story I really enjoyed is the Native American protagonist Nicely done It s good to see diversity in literature and this in no way felt like pandering or stereotypical Primary reason I did not rate this higher is the heavy handed treatment of explaining revealing the psychological motivations of the H h This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Butterfly has some elements of S M which I am curious about, but don t particularly find inspiring We are introduced to the heroine who is a woman who has chosen to live as a slave Gor philosophy based for the past five years It becomes obvious that she made this choice from the context of a very dysfunctional and self destructive life to begin with, which explains why she willingly stayed in a demeaning situation as essentially an object Is

believe the story does explore that fine line of what is really consensual versus coerced or victimized The romance of the story was interesting, but not as well developed as I would like due to the first half of the book s focus on the context of Butterfly s slavery I really enjoyed the author s descriptions of the Bryan s Navajo heritage, and would have loved I don t know why someone wrote a synopsis for the book without reading it, but that seems to be what happened because what that says barely resembles the book.When Bryan first arrives at the mansion, he knows about as much about BDSM

figure out how Gary got four attractive women to pose nude for the photos he was working from The only reason he started trying to figure out if he had dominant tendencies was because it was the only way he could think of to lure Butterfly away.This was a really a Soul Mate situation Bryan and Butterfly began to obsess over each other from the moment they met Just his presence in the house made her question the slavery she thought she had always wanted And early on, I had some thought that Gary would just let her go.After all, it was obvious he didn t love her and never had He may have helped her deal with some of the stresses of life but the fact that he let her quit college in her final semester so she wouldn t get her degree and that he just replaced her Cutting habit with a level of Agoraphobia that ensured she could never escape him on her own But I really think the reason he hired Bryan when he did the fact that he finally had four slaves so he could have his fancy wood carving done was all he really cared about.And Gary broke the single most important Cardinal Rule for me when he left Sapphire alone bound in the dungeon I don t blame Brian for not doing anything, but it proved that Gary was never going to be worthy of anyone s trust As he proved when he attempted to influence the outcome of the wager And the way he quoted chapter verse from the philosophy of John Norman proved that he lived in a very scary fantasy She goes with me Now one of my favorite movie moments was in Scent of a Woman when Al Pacino says I d like to take a flamethrower to this place This reminded me of that.I don t want to give away much about the second half, other than it was almost a separate story Too often in these total power exchange situations I spend a lot of time thinking how the real world never intrudes The second half is about life and death and family and redemption and was a great ending to the bookOnce you realize how strong you are, will you still need me Maybe not, she whisperedThere was a complete story here that won t disappoint, but this is another one that actually has enough material for a sequel if they wanted to write one at some point 5 Stars This was not a hard core BDSM submission book there were some parts in it that were harder darker when Butterfly was with her Master, but after she got out I just fell in LOVE with her and Bryan I loved to see how Butterfly emerged from her cocoon and got stronger and braver every day with Bryan, they both needed each other soo much and made each other a better person.Well be re reading it in the future
