The closest he will ever come to happiness is when he's hurting her. Will she let him? A beautiful and twisted story of first love and innocence lost--written when the author was just eighteen.Sphinxie and Cadence. Promised to each other in childhood. Drawn together again as teens. Sphinxie is sweet, compassionate, and plain. Cadence is brilliant, charismatic. Damaged. And diseased. When they were kids, he scarred her with a knife. Now, as his illness progresses, he becomes increasingly demanding. She wants to be loyal--but fears for her life. Only the ultimate sacrifice will give this love an ending.
There is something wrong with me. I have an addiction to the hard-hitting, powerful and often gruesome stories within the bounds of contemporary fiction because they are often the most intense and thought-provoking stories. Breaking Butterflies sounds like an emotional rollercoaster of feels, plus the psychological aspect of it is dangerously alluring. This could very well be one incredibly powerful novel...that I absolutely must read. What do you think, and what are you waiting on this week?
