*******PLEASE NOTE******** This version of Flutter is NO LONGER available! Flutter has been changed and somewhat re-written along with being completely edited. Thank you!

SO good!

Two words. Adan Delacruz. That's all you need to know. He was my main enjoyment in the book. He was cocky, but it was in a way that was endearing and sexy, not irritating. You could tell he cared for Sara insane amounts. I thoroughly enjoyed their banter and loved when they finally got together.

The paranormal aspects of the book were very entertaining and different. I never had times where I knew exactly what was going to happen.

And then the end came. Hopefully book two will come soon

What can I say?
NOT what I expected. Not in the LEAST what I expected.
Not that I know what I expected but it sure as hell wasn't this.
Flutter was...I don't even know what to say. It was amazing.
It was like being tossed into darkness and falling towards light and knowing it was dangerous but doing it anyway.
Flutter is a story of a Princess by blood and character who faces what she has to and fights even when she doesn't understand anything.

Strong start to a fun, innovative, new series

Here we go!! I've been looking forward to this series for over a year ever since I read a brief blurb in the back of one of Shelly Crane's fantastic books.

Ok, so Flutter is a nice, shiny example of what I like about the YA Paranormal genre: strong heroine/hero, fascinating paranormal characters and abilities that I'd never seen before, action, romance, mystery and it's clean! This story starts at warp speed and doesn't let go of your heart even after

Wow... I haven't read a decent book about shapeshifters in a long time. I had no idea which branch of paranormal lore Flutter would encompass when I began reading it, but I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. I admit that I chose to read it almost solely based on the cover and the fact that it was in the Paranormal genre.

The plot moves at a very fast pace, which I greatly appreciate, and the characters face ample amounts of drama, which engages the reader and makes them develop attachm

It has taken me awhile to find the perfect way to word this review.
Let me start by saying that Adan is NOT the star of this book. That honor belongs to the beautiful Sara. Her beauty runs way deeper than her shimmering skin, all the way to her heart that was breaking by the end of the book.
Melissa told a story here that was at times exciting, at times heart breaking and at all times, riveting.
Thus is one of the best stories I have ever read, and I can't wait until the next book comes out.

The book opens with a young Sara, the Princess of her land, being taken from her parents as they prepare to be murdered. Instantly, the reader is set up to know that there is a bigger picture here. We know that we will be taken on a wild ride to discover what the heck is going on. We are given very little information about the how and why of her parents murder. Just that ‘they’ are after the Princess for her powers. Ohhh…I wanna know why!
By the next chapter our little Princess is all grown up an

I was introduced to Flutter about a year or so ago when I read the first chapter or 2 for Andrea while she was writing it. Fast-forward to present day time and the whole book is done and available for sale.

The book started off fairly strong and I just loved how it opened. We meet Sara, Adan and Andres…each giving us their take in the beginning. I love the chemistry between Sara and Adan, it is definitely undeniable. They really clicked and you can’t help but smile when they are together and inte

Ok, so we open to a pretty dramatic scene- a crumbling kingdom, bad guys literally at the door, and parents sacrificing themselves for their only child. Queue time jump to present day, where Sara awakes to find herself literally buried with confusing secrets and things that shouldnt be possible. After a dramatic return to the world, she returns home with her 'watcher' and guardian Andres, but the secrets he is keeping build a wall between them, and in classic fairy tale fashion, this only allows ...more

The sad thing about this book is that it had so much potential. I loved the first couple of chapters (ultimately being the reason I went ahead and purchase the book) but after that, things just got confusing. Our main character is left in the dark about a lot of things until the very end of the book, meaning that we, the readers, are also left in the dark for that long. Little things were explained but nothing ever really made sense. I didn't understand Adan's role in the book. Sadly, I felt lik ...more

Nice start to a series.

The premise of having a dragonfly princess as a heroine is quite intriguing, really. Well, we can't see her transforming yet in here but I am so excited about that.

The story was very good. There were a lot of action parts and lots of sweet moments. It was also kind of frustrating, the way the hero and heroine interact with each other because they were both fighting what they feel as first (view spoiler). There were also a lot of internal mo

The book was alright. It had potential and by the cover, I was fooled completely. I guess I should follow the saying of "don't judge a book by it's cover" cause this one had a pretty cover but the story was like a jumbled blob of thesaurus words. Honestly, with all of the hype that was on Facebook, you would think that the book would live up to the cover... but it didn't. I guess I can give her props for at least finishing and writing a book. Not all people can do that, although it isn't imposs ...more

Outstanding! I really can’t express how much I loved this book. When I first saw the first teasers to Flutter when the book was just coming together I had a feeling that this book was going to be a success. And I was right! Not only is the storyline something I had never read before, but the characters are refreshing and new. Sara, one of the main characters in Flutter is an amazing character. She is loyal, funny, witty, compassionate, and is a very talented, you feel in awe of her throughout th ...more

This was one of those books that the anticipation was building and building and then it was finally here... and... it was so worth the wait!

I loved how different this book was. It wasn't about vampires or werewolves or angels or demons, it was a whole other magical world. One that I can't wait to learn more about. By the end of the book, you were screaming for more answers; there just wasn't enough!!!

The prologue itself was beautifully written and I loved it as an introduction to the book.

I enjoyed the book, but it was hard to get in to. The mistakes and wrong words were very confusing. There were numerous grammatical and spelling mistakes also.I will probably read the next one, if someone edits the book correctly.

I couldn't finish this one.
I'm shocked at all the high ratings, maybe I'm just not getting it.
I was completely confused at times.
The story was tooooooo wordy and boring.
I'm not even going to delve into the grammatical errors.

This was a great book. I really liked how Melissa's writing gets you lost in the book, like you are right there with them.
I definitely had a book hangover after reading it. Keep up the great work.

Normally I don't read the prologues of books because well I just don't but I found myself reading this one and crying like a baby, it's like I was there with Sara's parents feeling what they were feeling, going through what they were going through. I thought it weird Adan knew Sara when she was a baby, but then I got to thinking that vampires don't age and stay the same so why couldn't Adan. (He's not a vampire FYI) I was disappointed at how little the Sara and Adan scenes were, but when there ...more
This book wasn't for me. The synopsis sounded interesting and the reviews weren't bad so I decided to go for it, I was so disappointed. I kept falling asleep while reading it, I've read books with less than two hours sleep in a 24 hour period and was wide awake so that showed me that this book was not grabbing my interest. The build up to Adan and Sara meeting was so long and drawn out and filled with boring unnecessary constant inner dialogues by the characters. (Oh yeah, there were POV's from ...more

First I am going to start by saying that I waited what felt like FOREVER to get my hands on this book!!! In that time I became friends with Melissa and love her dearly. This is Melissa's debut novel and I think she created a beautiful tale! Well done girly!!!

I got 33% through and it just couldn't maintain my attention. It seemed like it was dragging and all I had was a lot of confusion and NO ANSWERS. I don't necessarily mind that, but when nothing is clear it's like there's nothing to suck me in then, kwim? The prologue sucked me right in...I even enjoyed the in the head stuff when Sara's in the water (between Sara and Adan). But I found myself expecting something to happen at the end of the chapter, only to turn the page and have that something ne ...more

He was trying to fight something stronger than himself.

Was it really losing if he never really had a chance to begin with?

He couldn’t change the past, but can he rearrange destiny?

At the start of the prologue I was transported into the story. So much detail in the Authors writing you could feel the pain of losing the Kingdom "Everything they had built, the world they had created for their daughter, was being destroyed out of anger and greed." The strength and pain that Sara's parents were portr

So good! The editing was terrible, but the content was great! Spicy but still tween friendly. Finally something different. I just read a string of sucktastic books, so this was refreshing. I mean it had all the typical bf/gf drama and mild to none existing love triangle. Which I think they could have left out- but whatever. The beginning starts the book off at a running pace and it slows down in the middle for the seventh inning stretch- I may have skimmed a page or two. And I could have done wi ...more

I find it hard to sum up my life in a paragraph, but I'll try.

Reading has always been a passion for me and writing is as instinctive as breathing. Every inhale is an idea; every exhale a creation.
