Adored this little standalone novella by Jennifer Labelle. Was totally shocked by the twist in chapter one. I loved that Sawyer, the female lead, was so kick ass. Hate snivelling women in books.
Jagger was the hot as hell cowboy that never forgot his first love.
Now she’s back, he’s not letting her go again!

Can’t wait to read the next Novella about Becca and Mace x

This is a fantastic story! Sawyer is a badass and I love me some tough heroines. I like that the past with Jagger is so heavy but also that she can’t help but let him back in her heart.

Chasing Butterflies is a quick read about second chances, moving forward and chasing that feeling that makes us feel loved, excited and above all happy. Sawyer and Jagger’s story is heartfelt and will have you loving these two so easily. A story that at times is emotional, sweet and hot and steamy. This is my first book by this author and a beautiful introduction, a love story about learning to finally grab hold of love and never letting go.

A quick, second chance romance

This novella was right what I was in the mood for. While a short read, it still had heartbreak, a little bit of drama, and a whole lot of romance. Jagger was sexy and all southern which I absolutely LOVED.

Sawyer was now back in town, hoping to get a second chance at a new beginning, opening up her very own tattoo shop. Little did she know, her fresh start would take her back to where it all started...with Jagger.

A must if you're in the mood for a quick and short s

Chasing Butterflies follows Sawyer as she goes back home after a tragic loss. This is a short, quick read. Sweet second chance love story. It was a good story. I would have liked it to been a little more detailed in some of the story. Mace and Becca's intro in the epilogue definitely has me intrigued for the next book.

A sweet, short story focussing on the life of Sawyer. She hasn't has an easy life and moves back home to deal with the loss of her sister. There she bumps into an old flame.

I really enjoyed this story. It was the first I've read by this author and I know it won't be the last. Looking forward to Mace's book

Really, really short.

It's sweet for the most part with some hot scenes too.

I do think it would have been a lot better with more detail though. It was just a little too quick for me.

This was a fantastic book. I loved it. The book is written and it is worth your time and effort. This is the first Jennifer Labelle but it will not be the last. This is part of the Hell Yeah Kindle World so some old friends show up in this book. I don't do spoilers but I will tell you this has a small town, old high school flame and of course that witchy girl with the trash mouth. I encourage everyone to get this book, I think you will enjoy it!!!!

This was a quick steamy second chance at love read. I loved both the main characters Jagger and Sawyer they were completely different but Jagger had other ideas. He really was a perfect Alpha guy with a sweetheart and a gentle hand. Sawyer loved that she was a tattoo artist and so different from everyone in their little ole town. She is a lot stronger than she thinks and Jagger is going to prove it to her.

Loved this book!

Sawyer and Jagged reunite after several years apart to find they are still in love and this time they are not teenagers. This is another good ending to a great book. I can't wait for the next book this year!
A cute quick read. Sawyer is a successful tattoo artist but when tragedy strikes she's forced to move back home to her unhappy past. Jagger is one of those memories. The thing about our memories is that it only includes our view points.

Great story

Good story of second chances. Even though they got off to a good start the last time, things turned bad. Could she trust him again? Don't miss this great story.

Sometimes the best books are new discoveries. Jennifer Labelle is a "new to me" author. But that will be changing. Chasing Butterflies encompassed some of my favorite genres--small town, second chance, tattoo artists.

Sawyer has returned to Kerrville after loosing her sister in a fire. It is supposed to be a new beginning, but the past keeps getting in her way. Hopefully she will let Jagger back into her life and lean up him in order to get her HEA

I absolutely loved this second chance romance! At the beginning of the novella, Sawyer's sister talked about not giving up on love and finding someone who gives you butterflies. At the time, Sawyer didn't realize that would be her sister's last piece of advice to her. Devastated by her sister's sudden death, Sawyer decides to move back to the last place she ever pictured living, Kerrville- her hometown that held a multitude of painful memories. Sawyer isn't home long, before the handsome Jagger ...more

I adored this second chance story!

After the tragic death of her beloved older sister, Sawyer needs a fresh start and returns to her hometown. The very place she fled from years before, heartbroken. Leaving behind the only boy she ever loved.

She's not there very long before coming face-to-face with the very same boy, scratch that man. Jagger has never stopped loving Sawyer, and now that he has another chance at claiming her heart. He doesn't back down.

As always, I loved the story Jennifer conjure

This was an ok book to read. It had sad and sweet moments.
I hope to read more from this author

Awesome, Hell Yeah!

First time reading a Jennifer Labelle book. Have to say, wow! "Chasing Butterflies" , part of the Hell Yeah kindleworld was everything a reader enjoys in a book. You will love Sawyer and Jagger's story. As your reading, you feel the emotions Sawyer is feeling from sadness, heartbreaking tragic, happiness and true love. Jagger is definitely someone you would fall in love with at first sight. If you enjoy first love-lost love and how a lost soul comes home, you will love this bo

A great second chance

I loved the fast pace of this story, it flowed easily without rushing through the plot. I definitely want more of the secondary characters and hope the author explores them in the same way and even revisits these characters if there is time.
As a KW book, the tie in was good enough to draw me in and recognize it for what it was and didn't distort the original storylines. That's important to me, as a faithful reader of the HY series. Great job overall! Will definitely be read

This book is a quick read but interesting!! The characters are fun and relatable and this story flows! I really enjoyed reading this story!

Chasing Butterflies is the first novella in the Bad Girls series. In it, we meet Sawyer. She left her home town with her big sister and never looked back. Now, due to the death of her sister, she returns there, needing a fresh start. Her first night in town, and she bumps into the one memory she was hoping to avoid.

This is a very fast-paced novella, although it is an easy read. Unfortunately for me, I didn't really connect with Carley before she died, so the impact on Sawyer was pretty much lost

The Tattoo Artist Gets a Second Chance for Home and Love

A combination of copy editing errors and "world" collision, created a story that's sort of hard to follow (for this Hell Yeah! reader who is new to this author). Sawyer has had so many tragedies, it's a wonder that she returns to Kerrville at all, much less, to stay. Mostly, the story feels very short, and the characters don't quite reach the level of sympathetic narrators in such a brief read. There's just not a lot of room for them to arc

Great story line. Could of tapped way more into the story to make it longer. I had a hard time reading it because it seemed like the story was switching from character view points but it was written in 3rd person. I would of loved to see it in 1st person, from the actual view point of both characters when switching. I loved the ideas for the book, would of loved to of been able to read it differently.

A fast moving easy read. Sawyer returns to her home town after losing her sister in a fire. The first person she meets is Jagger, her old boyfriend. Story is riddled with sorrow and pain and a new struggle to adjust to new life in her new business. She and Jagged struggle with their relationship.

4 Short and Sweet Stars

A nice short sweet read...

If I was to go more into it this book could have had more story development, but because this is so short that was probably hard to do. It just felt so quick and unrealistic.
