Dylan Walker has spent six years trying to move on from the loss of his girlfriend, Presley Cooper. Motivated by grief and the desire to do for others what he couldn’t do for her, he burns the candle at both ends to make it through medical school.

Or so he thought.

I have been reading Olivia's books since the beginning and Flutter is her BEST.BOOK.YET bar none.
With edge of your seat suspense, a thought-provoking storyline, characters who are real to their very core, and let's not forget—a well thought out narrative—Evans has shown readers her growth as an author and this wordsmith is not to be missed.
Heartfelt love, cunningness and heartbreak come full circle to create a story that is addicting and unpredictable yet exciting in every way. My heart raced, t

This was a recommendation and wow! I am so glad I started reading because once I started I didn't put it down. This is a true love story mixed with loss and angst. A plot with a couple twists and turns. And thankfully the author gives a wonderful HEA. I was never bored or tired reading this epic story. A must read.

3.5 Stars Flutter is a suspenseful, very moving and poignant story, hitting all the emotional hot spots! And boy does this one deal with some tough deep issues, like deppression, mental illness, abortion and loss. It's all in there. From the emotional end, Olivia did really, really well. I was 100% invested in Presley and Dylan's story.
I did have issues, at times, with how the plot line was executed. There were some areas that, I believe, needed more detail and development to make them conceiva

Let me start by saying how much I love this cover. The story inside? Absolute perfection. It is definitely making my favorites of 2017...and all time favorites! Olivia Evans really blew me away with Flutter.

This story is unlike any I've ever read. The plot is so unique and the characters are so well developed. This is a book I won't soon forget.

While FLUTTER could have been a moving and poignant examination of the effects of trauma (view spoiler) on a high-school relationship and beyond, the key points of the plot were too inconceivable for me to take the novel seriously. Set in the present day, the story flashes back six years to the high school romance of Dylan and Presley and the events and people that drove them apart. Though a relatively typical romantic plot a ...more

This book had a great flow which went from past to present seamlessly and before you people bitch about not liking the whole past to present thing (ahemmm LORI) it was totally essential to tell how the characters got to where they are and it just worked perfectly!

OMG where to start with this amazing book!
I first wanted to read this story as I really liked the blurb and I love discovering new authors. On first seeing the cover of the book it attracted me to it even more, and as the story plays out you get to realise why such an incredible design was chosen as it's a really fitting design and it's very significant to the story, I totally love it.
The story is based around Presley Cooper and Dylan Walker, two young lovers that become separated through deceit

I take different things away from different books all the time while reading. I learn something new, look at something differently, and so on..... what I can never ever predict is how much of an impact a book is going to have on me, how special it's going to be, how mind blowing, and just simply how important. Flutter was all I wanted it to be and more. It was everything I look for in a book and more! It was a masterpiece! It was epic. It was simply put.... EVERYTHING!!!

Olivia killed it, in the best way.
This story was so refreshing. Different than the same things out there now.

Dylan and Presley, oh how you feel for them and their circumstances so much.

This book has many turns and you're on the edge throughout the whole book.

You can see how Olivia did her research for this book.

One click this book, it's so amazing.

What a heartbreakingly beautiful story that was. It completely ripped me apart but then put me back together. It was a perfect mixture of painful, sweet and romantic. It kept me on the edge the whole time and I cheered for Dylan to succeed in his mission, turning the pages like crazy to see what was going to happen. I felt sadness for the whole situation those two found themselves in. Some part were excruciatingly painful and brutal to read. They broke my heart and made me cry, but there were th ...more

THIS ONE tops the charts for me it was so good I finished it in one long sitting and it will be one that I recommend to everyone that loves a good thriller.

An amazing book you don't want to miss. It's a gripping story from the very first page and you won't be able to put it down. Lots of books touch me for various reasons but this one touched me deep and left me with chills. It's a story of lies, secrets, deception, and a powerful love that in the end is what it takes to unravel the truth. Presley Cooper and Dylan Walker are two characters that will stay with you long after you've finished reading this book. I'm not going to give many details on th ...more

Flutter.
Want a book with love, pain, angst, and a great plot twist – or two? Then this is the one for you. Ms Evans kept me guessing, biting my lip, and turning the page as fast as possible. Great suspense with a “set” of secondary characters with a story of their own that was gripping.
Romantic, nail biting suspense at it’s best! My heart fluttered with every new angle!

4.5 - 5 - In Flutter, Olivia Evans spins a wicked web of intrigue, layered with intense plot twists and turns. You need to go into this book blind and expect a wild ride on a crazy train of emotions. I didn’t expect this! This romantic suspense story made my heart flutter. This unputdownable story is one-click worthy.

I have been a fan of Olivia's writing for many years now, so when she announced this as her next stand-alone novel, I was beyond excited. The blurb was enticing and pulled me in on the get-go. After reading it, I don't even know where to begin with this incredible, thought-provoking novel. The story is centred around Dylan Walker coming face to face with Presley Cooper, the love of his life who he thought was lost to him forever. The timeline fluctuates between the past and present day, showcasi ...more

Let me tell you. Drop what you're doing and read this book. Honestly, that's what I have to say.

I've been a fan of Olivia's work since a friend of mine introduced me to Brooklyn & Beale. With each novel, her writing gets deeper, her characters get more complex and her stories get even more sophisticated. A talented author tells a great story. A phenomenal author weaves details and history with deep character roots to produce something prof

You know when you read a book and it's all you can think about? You dream about it? This was that book for me. Last night Flutter was in my dreams and I was trying to figure everything out, I could hear Dylan, I could see Presley.
The story - strong story, excellent plot, interesting characters. Dylan is a young graduate starting his residency to become Dr. Walker. He's driven, he's motivated.
Presley - she and Dylan have known each other since they were kids and start dating in high school.

This is one of the most amazing book I've read in quite some time. I truly have never read a book anything like this and it had me completely hooked from beginning to end. I absolutely loved Presley, Dylan and his grandmother Ann. I can't believe the lengths Presley's parents went to, to keep her away from Dylan and their image clean. I also enjoyed Cody, Zach and Maverick although, we didn't get to see much of Maverick. Zack was definitely the brains and protector while Cody was the sweet, shy ...more

I honestly had no idea what to expect when I started this book. Someone in a book group recommended this author but I had never heard or read any of her books prior. So I took a leap of faith and I ended up loving this book so much! I'm not going to lie there had been certain parts of the story that hit close to home and I found myself getting emotional. I didn't want to take those trips down memory lane again or feel the way I did but I'm happy I stuck with the story!
