Butterfly is the first installment in the all new spinoff series by Ashley Antoinette. If you have not read Moth to a Flame & the Ethic series( which contains six parts), you may want to go back, get acquainted with them and then check this book out. If you have read all of those, carry on reading this review lol.
It has been two years since the devastating events of Ethic 6 and Morgan Mo Atkins , is still trying to find her new normal. Shes adjusting to motherhood, in a loveless

This is the first book I've read from this author and let me just say, it will not be my last. I'm about to purchase every book she has ever written based on this book I've read. I'm not sure how I've never crossed paths with this authors books until now but this story was absolutely amazing!!! I devoured this book in one sitting. Morgan, Aria, Isa, Ahmeek, Bash, Ethic, Messiah, Yara and Messari will have you loving them all in very different ways. This book was full of angst, suspense, steam, ...more

This was my first read by Ashley Antoinette. I have admired the Ashley and JaQuavis novels from a distance over the years. Recently, I have seen several book bloggers post about Antoinettes Ethic series. I was intrigued by the premise of that series. Butterfly is a follow up to the Ethic series and follows the story of Morgan Atkins. The author cautions readers to read the Ethic series before reading Butterfly. I did not follow the authors advice and I was able to follow the novel with no ...more

Predictable and a little slow for this authors norm. You will get more out of the story if you read the ethic series, the books before this one. This book was filled with a blend of suspense, steamy scenes, humor, lots of drama and betrayal. All the makings of a good book. The playlist for the book was a nice touch. ...more

I read the uncorrected galley copy of this ebook. My review remains a 5 star because even though there are a few mistakes, they do not take away from the storyline and I'm sure will be fixed before the release date. With that being said....

Oh my goodness! I have been an Ashley Antoinette fan for about 10 years and the growth and passion of her work has only gotten better over the years . Butterfly picks up 2 years after book 6 of the Ethic series. And I might add that it was so well written that

Wow!! This book is excellent! One of the best Ive read this year. A real rollercoaster ride and so well written. This book was full of apprehension, tension, intensity, pain, humor, drama, and betrayal. If you want to experience laughter and love and passion and drama, then this is the book for you. I loved the characters, I loved this book and I highly recommend it. My thanks to Netgalley, the publisher and the author for an advance copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. ...more

Brace yourself

There isn't enough stars to give you for this book. The amount of love Meek is yelling to Morgan is breathe take and dangerous none the less. Part 2 is gonna be very interesting to say the least. How can Messiah come back and compete with the bond Morgan and Arkmeek are build. The PLOT THICKENS. Can't wait until part 2 come out. Jesus please don't let it be 6 months from now.

She Did It AGAIN!

Listen! Listen to me carefully! Ashley Antoinette is the TRUTH! Ive never been on a journey like this where I could cry because I wanted more! From the beginning to the end, I dreaded the ending because I knew I would need more. I need to move in with the Okafors, or with the Colemans. Either way, I need to be in the family. A GREAT READ! What am I going to do until June?!

No cap. This is the best Ive seen from Ashley since Moth to a Flame.
Ive been very hard on her work and I was so disappointed after the entire Ethic series. Yet here I am.
You get classic Ashely Antoinette in this one and all the things she does best. Anyone who has read my reviews of her work will know that I always say shes the absolute best at hood love, and this novel is no different.
This one had substance and was not loaded with filler. I mean you get her typical prose, but she doesnt over

Oh My Goodness! Kudos to the writer. Girl your talent never ceases to amaze me. You took us from the Ethic series of pure bliss, now we enter the Butterfly series of confusions and conflict. It was mine blowing. I have so many suggestions, but dare not say because I dont want to ruin the book for others. Even my feelings are all over the place. I can only say may the best and most deserving MAN win. And if I can speak freely; what man takes in a woman had her two kids, ask her to marry him, but ...more

We were first introduced to Morgan Atkins in Moth To A Flame. We watched her mature and experience love and heartache in The Ethic series. Now we can see Morgan's journey continue in Butterfly .
Morgan moves to London with Bash. He's a handsome and wealthy professor. She is going to college and his family is helping her with her twins. Messiah is their father but they let everyone believe that
Bash fathered them.
When Morgan's best friend Aria and the crew visit London she gets homesick for

Up front- I hadn't read the earlier series and I do think I would have appreciated some of the characters more had I done so. That said, this is one big book of drama and it's enjoyable even if you aren't really clear on the backstories. Morgan is a married mom who isn't sure of herself. She messes with fire when she starts up again with an old flame but this does lead to some steamy scenes and some fun takes from her friends. I liked the play list (most of the music was unfamiliar to me so that ...more

My review in 6 words: happy for the direction she took

Not gonna lie, my rating is biased as hell. This book is a five star read as should be expected with Ashleys work. However, I subtracted a star because of some events that happened in the book that I was not proud of. I know thats petty but she is a such a good writer that I am use to certain people being together and I can only see those people together so when couple split and start seeing other people, I HATE it. However, the actual book

I read this book in a day. It went everywhere I did. June 7th can't come fast enough.

Wow. Now that was amazing. The last chapter really had me in my feeling. I cried, laughed, and was angry when Meek and Mo got together. Watch out Meek. Messiah is coming for his queen and with Ethic on his side it's going to be crazy. Watch out Bash and Meek!
