Butch is just a plan human stuck in a vampire world. We met Brian "Butch" O'Neil in the first book through Beth who found himself surrounded by vampires and not able to get out. You know what though? He fits in. Butch especially connects with Vischous perfectly.

The brotherhood offered him any and everything he would ever want but even though he felt that this was his home now, there was still something missing. It all clicked when he spotted Marissa. The earth literally moved and he knew that she was meant to be his. He had never seen a most beautiful person in all his life. And she seems just as enamored with him, even though he's not sure why. Which brings us to the present. If she was equally entranced, why has he not seen or heard from her in months? She was avoiding him and he couldn't figure out why. So Butch decides to take out his frustrations on battling some lessers but what do you know? Luck was just not on his side and found himself being sacrificed in place of a civilian vampire to spare his life. Thankfully Butch is found by a frantic V but no one knows what exactly is wrong with him and if he can be saved.

In comes Marissa. Feeling that something is not quite right seeing the brothers at Havers', she investigates and can't believe what she is seeing. Butch. Strapped to a bed and looking like death reincarnate. Not thinking, she rushes into the quarantined room. When she see with her own eyes he is alive, she is beyond relieved and knows she can no longer fight her feelings towards this fascinating human. That decision becomes the now when Havers walks in and sees her in the quarantine room without the proper precautions on. Not sure if Butch is contagious, Marissa finds herself locked in the room with him until they can figure it out.

Weird things are going on with Butch since his dance with the Omega. He can't help but think that he is cursed but he gradually gets better with the help of Vischous and especially Marissa. As their connection gets deeper, Butch is hell bent on trying to figure out a way to be able to stay with Marissa forever. Whatever the risk.

I was really excited to read Butch and Marissa's story. I couldn't help but get emotionally involved in Butch's struggles to come to terms with his new fate and his growing love for Marissa. He still holds a soft spot in my heart. :)
