To keep her clean, he's about to get dirty...

I wasn’t a rookie, but I made a mistake because I was selfish, impulsive, and headstrong.

I was also in love.

My desire for her overwhelmed me. Consumed me. Distracted me.

To protect her, I stood motionless as my partner pried her from the security of my arms. I watched as she fought his hold. I even listened when she screamed

descriptionI enjoyed this one but it did, unfortunately, have some issues that affected my rating in a negative way. First I will say that I enjoy this author's writing. She has a very readable way to her writing that makes for an enjoyable experience. The pace was ok, but a bit too slow at times and the book was a bit too long. The plot was engaging (for the most part) and kept me turning the pages. There wasn't any OW drama, but there was OM drama and cheating on the part of the heroine. That said, it wi

Can two people rediscover each other after being apart for years? How do you reconnect with that person who you thought you would be with every day?

That is what Livvie and Jay have to figure out after so may things have kept them apart. I struggled a little to get engrossed into the book, but I eventually did. Overall a good story premise.

I remember when reading Fixing Fate that I hoped Jay would get a story....well he did and I loved it.

I loved the way the book started and then took us back to the beginning. I'll never look at a penny the same way again. I loved both of the main characters and their families. You could feel the wonderful connection between everyone.

Overall this was a great read that brought out many different emotions from joy to sorrow, heartbreak to happiness. After seeing Opal and Ryan meet in this story, I

Jay, oh Jay! You own me! I’m forever yours if you’ll take me! I LOVE YOU and I am aware that you are a fictional character but who gives a crap! I’m running on three hours of sleep because this book had me turning the pages non-stop! It all started with a penny and I was hooked 😍

I FLOVED Jay and Livvie so much! Their chemistry was off the charts, the sex scenes were hot, and they were so adorable together! Jay was a devoted alpha and the way he was with Livvie was perfect

Jay Jamison will for sure get you there!!! ☺

When I first met Jay in Fixing Fate (which by the way is an absolutely phenomenal book and you should read it right away) I knew right off the bat I needed his story. There was just something about the way he cared for his sister, Mellie, that spoke to me and I knew he was going to be an awesome lead character and would make for a great read.

Well I am totally the “I told you so” type person and I so love when my instincts are right!!!! Jay’s story was

Firstly, I love the cover of Bulletproof Butterfly, it is so Jay and I could imagine this guy throughout the whole story.

Livvie’s journey is highly confronting, her depth of despair will have you questioning how you would cope, she was inspiring to me.

Jay I fell in and out of love with as this story progressed, he did lose me in the middle of the story. I cannot pinpoint why, however i was emotionally invested in Livvie and she was hurting and I blamed Jay when I should not have.

I have to say I

Ok, grab the tissues and make sure you have time to sit down and read this book. You will not want to be disturbed while reading this book. You may need a Bulletproof vest to protect your heart or you may feel like a Butterfly and spread those wings and fly to safety. They say in the field you have to keep your private life separate from your work life and this story couldn’t show it better on what happens when you make one mistake that you would expect from a rookie, not from someone who has be ...more

Ok so definately not your run of the mill Witness Protection storyline...Jay and Livvie....what can I say about these two!!! Jay is the opitome of ALPHA..holy crap!!! But he is caring, sentimental, hot and a total badass!! Livvie is strong and adorable and is as madly in love with Jay as he is with her. You can feel their love and connection with every word written. And pennies.....lets just say you will never look at a penny the same way again. Their love oozes out of them and top that off with ...more

Bulletproof Butterfly by Anna Brooks a four-star read that will make you want to flap your wings high. Anna Brooks is a beautiful writer, she has a way with words that has you making emotional bonds with characters in a way that means some will never leave you. This story is an emotional battlefield for both Jay and Livvie they both have their own stuff to deal with and story to tell and as you read the story you see their stories unfold and be told, they intertwine in a manner that seems very r ...more

I will be honest and say at first when I realised there was some back and forth with flashbacks I was not thrilled and then BAM I was thoroughly sucked into this book. I absolutely was stunned with how engrossed I became with this book. The story is not one I have read before and the details are what make this book. You will not be disappointed when you read this story. I was so in love with both Jay and Olive. I would really love to see some follow up books on the other secondary characters!

Bulletproof is my first book by Anna Brooks. I liked it..just have some mixed feelings about it. It's a story about true love, being strong and have hope when there is little to none.

I didn't quite like the characters, yes Jay is absolutely an alpha..but I felt he needed to control a bit too much. And Livvie, as sweet she was, I felt she was a bit of a pushover...

It's an interesting story, filled with action and angst.

This book was incredible! I wasn't sure what I was getting into, but I am so glad that I had the opportunity to read this story. It was definitely a romantic suspense but in such an amazing way. The story has an alpha male who is a copy, and in love with our heroine. He has to send her away after a terrible event. It took everything he had to send her away to protect her from the danger that was following her and out for her blood. There is a mystery, suspense, sexy hot scenes,

The first chapter of this book hooked me, I needed to know more. I was excited for this story.... then I kept reading and waiting for something to happen, anything..... The book started off great but by the end I was wondering what happened to the story because nothing happened and I was left feeling like there could have been so much more to this story.

I was really up and down with this book but in the end it was just an 'ok' read for me. The premise of this story was fantastic, and I can't fault the plot in anyway whatsoever. For that reason and for the quality of writing I'm giving this 3 stars, rather than 2.

The book begins with a brief 'present day' scene and then goes back three years, in order to fill us in on Olive/Liv/Livvie (chose and stick to one please) and Jay's backstory. I don't mind this but the pace of the book was slooow for q

Anna Brooks once again delivers a 5 STAR PERFECT book packed full of heart achy FEELS!! OMG!!! Jay is hands down my new favourite hero of Anna Brooks! He is the epitome of ALPHA! I loved how protective and obsessed he was with Livvie right from the start! And Livvie was such a great heroine with her strength and resilience given the situation she was thrown into. This was an amazing story with an action/suspense element to it. In Anna Brooks’s signature writing style, I was hooked from the begin ...more

Possible trigger: Couple are separated for 3 years (for her safety) h has an "encounter" not intercourse and I will spoil below.

I really got sucked into this story. It starts with the H coming for the h after 3 years but before everything can be revealed the story flashes back to their 2 year relationship. Jay and Olive were amazing together. So in love. He is OTT protective but never abusive or controling. He is completely faithful during their separation where his only goal is to get her back

I don't know where to begin on this book. I absolutely loved it from beginning to end. Livvie and Jay were absolutely awesome. There story was so honest and real. It tore me apart reading it a times. What these two had to endure during everything was heartbreaking. Their love for each other was tested over and over again and I couldn't ever imagine it happening and what I would do in the circumstance. Jay, I am going to start with him because he was one of those guys that will do anything

I enjoyed a lot of Anna Brooks stories I've had the opportunity of reading some of them and I really liked Bulletproof Butterfly this can be read as a standalone though a lot of the secondary characters have their own stories out there like the heroes sister who is the heroine in Fixing Fate plus the authors covers go really well with the story and describe the hero or couple perfectly .

Bulletproof Butterfly is a standalone contemporary romance novel, following Jay and Livvie’s story as they are tragically ripped apart from each other. Written in alternate POV’s, we get to see the birth of their relationship and the devastating events that causes it to come crashing down. The use of flashback moments is really effective and adds to the enjoyment of this story. I cannot put into words how much I loved this book, but I’m going to try!

Well, where do I start?! From that very first
