      4.5 STARS”Wasn’t love a kind of chaos theory? One small look, one smile or one word could alter the course of a life forever.”Emma Scott delivers a story of two tormented souls finding friendship and love in one another. ”I recognized the weight of guilt that hung around his neck, because I wore it too.”The story is skillfully written while their fall into love is all done to perfection.

    • Chelsea Humphrey says:

      This was so cute! I read this in less than 24 hours (it's only around 275 pages with larger font and shorter chapters) and it was such a fresh break from all the heavy doom and gloom I typically read. While wholly predictable, it was just what I needed at the moment. I didn't have to concentrate on something complex and ever-changing and was able to appreciate this story for what it is- a delectable treat with a happy ending. Highly recommended for those who like their romance mostly happy and u [...]

      5+ Mesmerizing Stars!!! Have. Mercy. Ms. Scott. A theme park needs to name a roller coaster in your honor!I have learned before I begin to read an Emma Scott novel, to buckle up and prepare my heart for an exhilarating ride. And this ride was utter perfection and so satisfying.I love when a book makes me FEEL every emotion possible. Joy, anger, laughter, crying, elation, heartbreak, fulfillment. And when I find myself gasping for a breath, I know I am a goner. It is what you can expect from this [...]

      “I must be crazy,” he muttered. “Or you are.” He nodded at the tracks. “This is me. Or…us?”This is us.I went with Beckett Copeland to Brooklyn.Okay, let me first say that I love Emma Scott's writing; it is so beautiful in its simplicity. It’s such a treat, like sweet ice cream that you just want to keep shoveling in your mouth. But you don’t because you either get fat, or in the other case—a book hangover. So while I absolutely loved the writing like I do in all her books, it [...]

      DNF @ 56% but I skipped to the end! So after some spoilers from Mindy (thank you my dear), I skipped to the end. They did get a nice ending but it was more closure on their internal struggles I was interested in. The ending itself was a simple HFN With a possibility of more sometime in the future.But their survivors guilt was what interested me most. Since they didn't really work for me as a couple, I was more interested in how it all worked out with their own personal demons. It worked out amaz [...]

      5 - "Let's just be you and me, and no one else" Stars!ITs LIVE! US - a/9iaB0pt UK - amzn/8mH8mM6One thing I always know when I start a book by Emma Scott is that I am going to be in for an enjoyable, albeit likely and emotional read. And The Butterfly Effect was certainly that. Once again we are given a love story, but not quite as we know it. This is something the author excels at for me, in delivering a couple that although appear down-to-earth on the surface, are wholly unique once you get to [...]

      5 "All the 'nesses" StarsOh my heart. It's light and full and brimming with emotion all at the same time. It's unique and completely engrossing. It's a favorite and a must read. The Butterfly Project is Emma Scott proving once again that her talent is boundless.Zelda is chasing her dream after having spent the last decade running from guilt she can't get over. Writing and publishing a graphic novel is her life's ambition so moving to New York makes sense. At least until it doesn't. Leaving Vegas [...]

Point one for Emma right off the bat. That's one of the things I l [...]

      6+++++ ~Second Chance~ Stars *******I can't never go wrong with an Emma Scott novel. I have been suffering from a very intense book hangover, but leave it to The Butterfly Projectto pull me right out of my book funk after only reading a couple of pages. This novel felt like eighty nine thousand words fluttering around my soul, making their way into my heart, and making it soar. An uplifting story about second chances that will give you all the feels, and then some Zelda Rossi is a very talented [...]

      A little over a year ago (February 14th, to be exact) I finished my first Emma Scott novel, How to Save a Life, and I loved it. To quote myself, it pulled me in from the very beginning It was as true then as it is now; her words pull me in. When I read the Full Tilt duet last year, as much as I loved the characters, I think I loved the message more. And I feel the exact same way about this one. Don't get me wrong, the characters are fucking phenomenal, but there is something about her storytelli [...]

      6 starsThere is no point in my reviewing this book. If you are already an Emma Scott devotee, you one-clicked this baby the second the pre-order link was posted. And if you’ve never read Emma Scott, what could I possibly say to sway you? If you look at my reviews for her other books, it’s clear I’m a huge fan. I'm obsessed with her writing. I'm going to one-click and probably love anything she puts out. So can you trust my opinion? Therefore, I won’t bother telling you how much I loved T [...]

That way you’ll be true to yourself.First of all I loved the book. Emma Scott is now right alongside authors like A [...]
