I was NOT AT ALL IMPRESSED by the third and final book in the Harvey "Butterfly" series. The steamy scenes could have been written by my nine year old using a Mad Lib book and the plot didn't fare much better in the polish department. I was also disappointed that the third book didn't tie itself to the first two books in any way. The entire time I was reading this book, I felt disconnected to the main characters and disappointed for having wasted my time and money on such a letdown.

Eine spannende Geschichte und flüssig zu lesen. Allerdings überlas ich zuerst, dass es sich um einen "sinnlichen" Roman handelt und wurde gleich am Anfang von der Träumerei überrascht. Die Mischung aus Action/ Thriller (moderat) und Sexszenen trifft nicht ganz meinen Geschmack, ich war mehr an der Auflösung der Geschichte interessiert.

Ich habe diese Reihe von Kathryn Harvey wirklich geliebt. Sie mir auf sage und schreibe 3 Jahre verteilt, damit sie nicht so schnell weggelesen sind. Und dann mündet das Ganze in einer derartigen Katastrophe 🆘🆘. Zum einen kam kein einziger meiner geliebten Charaktere aus den ersten beiden Bänden vor 😢😭. Dann fand ich die story an sich wahnsinnig dem ersten Teil abgekupfert 🖓😪. Also da frage ich mich manchmal wirklich, ob Autoren ihren Lesern gegenüber kein Schamempfinden haben oder einfach denke ...more

When I saw that this book was billed as part of a trilogy with Butterfly and Stars, I was thrilled. Those books - delicious and fun fiction - made me want to devour this one. Even as I did, I wondered what was left to fill in after Stars? Well, after reading it, I think the answer was a whole two lines - a couple of offhand references to Butterfly early in the book. The general world was the same, that was it. I gave it two stars because if it hadn't been billed as part of a trilogy, I wouldn't ...more

ok, i loved the first two books. after reading the first two books in this "trilogy" I was excited to read this one. should have saved my money. I was really disappointed. it is in NO way connected to the butterfly or stars characters. the storyline had promise and made sense. but the characters were flat and shallow. the sex scenes seemed almost an afterthought written by a high school student. I really am having a hard time even believing the same person wrote the first two books and this one. ...more

It is just a regular book, but if you expect the third book of the Butterfly Trilogy, forget it, go for other book, this one has absolutely nothing to do with Butterfly and Stars. On top of that the story is very repetitive for those who read the other 2, a poor girl that got involved with a bad guy,go through fificult times, got rich and go looking for some lost relative and is persued by some guy that was poor and got rich as well. Not even the city where the resort which is the main scenario ...more

Another decent read by Kathryn Harvey although I didn't like it as much as Stars or Butterfly. This one took me longer to read... Or maybe I was just sick of the Harvey formula. Woman goes into hiding. Woman opens up a highly successful business. Woman has a tough time finding love. Woman has heartbreak over losing a child. Woman caters to the rich and famous. Definitely a theme going on here. Still, there was a plot and a storyline.. And lots of gratuitous sex scenes which could have been cut o ...more

This is supposed to be the third book in The Butterfly Trilogy. The first and second books, Butterfly and Stars, were quite good. However, compared to them, this one was pretty much trash. I had to make myself finish it. I definitely would NOT recommend anyone waste their time reading it. Read Butterfly and Stars, but forget this one as it truly has nothing to do with the characters or plot of the first two.

Gründe für das Buch:
- viele verschiedene charaktere und Sichtweisen
- gute verflechtung der Charaktere
- schnell zu lesende Schreibweise
Gründe gegen das Buch:
- einige unnötige und auch nich nachzuvollziehende Handlungen
- Sichtweisen manchmal nicht auseinander zu halten
- manchmal zu vorhersehbar auch wenn das Ende teilweise überraschend war

quite liked the story, illegal baby smuggling/adoptions & the search for a lost/stolen child. but at times, especialy getting towards the end, it occaionally got difficult to keep up as it began to change character POV every few paragraphs/pages, rather than at each chapter as it had been.

While good, I have no idea why this is claimed as the third book of the Butterfly series - I don't see how it connects at all. Besides maybe the mob guy is the one that sold the two woman in the previous books.

Well, I thought it was a pretty good book but didn't have a clear trail to the other two Butterfly and Stars, other than the baby stealing ring. I did enjoy the two female characters stories of success after great injustice.

Marshmallow trashy fun! Just in the mood for it.
A different character introduced every other chapter all the way through.

Not as good as Butterfly or Stars, but I still enjoyed it. It is a story in itself and I'm not sure how it is considered part of a trilogy.
