SUSAN: BOOK REVIEW - "Butterfly Hunter" by Julie Bozza
It started as a simple assignment for Aussie bush guide Dave Taylor – escort a lone Englishman in quest of an unknown species of butterfly.
However Nicholas Goring is no ordinary tourist, his search is far from straightforward, and it’s starting to look as if the butterflies don’t want to be found.
As Dave teaches Nicholas everything he needs to survive in the Outback he discovers that he too has quite a bit to learn – and that very often the best way to locate something really important is just not to want to find it…
Excuse me as I try to type while hugging myself holding this book...
Guess what book just quietly snuck its way on to my FAVORITES shelf – yup...BUTTERFLY HUNTER!
I loved this book. Sweet and kind and gentle and endearing…with 2 of the most charming MC’s ever – Davey, an Australian tour guide and Nicholas, a son of an English earl, out to find a rumored, yet undiscovered breed of butterfly. Admittedly, it doesn’t sound like the most interesting, captivating story. But think 2 gorgeous MC’s, with Aussie/Brit accents, in a friends-to-lovers (gay-for-you...but don’t let that stop you) romance set against the amazing Outback.
I found the book, from start to finish, utterly delightful. The sex scenes are mostly fade-to-black, but it didn’t bother me (there are some very hot kissing scenes though...:) ). This book is romantic and beautiful and put a smile on my face and a warmth in my heart.
IN A NUTSHELL:
Might be too sweet for some…but for me, I was enchanted. Now, off to look into Australian vacations…!!!
