Summary

Above an exclusive men's store on Rodeo Drive, there is a private club called Butterfly, where women are free to act out their secret erotic fantasies. Only the most beautiful and powerful women in Beverly Hills are invited to join.

Jessica - the lawyer who longs for the days when men were men and women dressed to please them. Trudie - the builder who wants a man who will challenge her - all of her - with no holds barred. Linda - the surgeon who uses masks to unmask the desires she hides even from herself.

But the most mysterious of them all is the woman who created Butterfly. She has changed her name, her accent, even her face to hide her true identity. And now she is about to reveal everything to realize the dream that has driven her since childhood.

A welcome blast from the past

I first read this book when I was 21/22 years old. I loved it back then. It has always been one of my favorite books because well who doesn't love a book with a strong heroine. The narrator nailed her performance. Thank you Audible for bringing this book to life for me.

Steamy

This book was very well written and held me craving for more.
The story often jumped from time period to time period. A male voice would have been nice for the male parts. Transitions between chapters would have kept me engaged instead of trying to remember how that chapter’s character fit into the big picture

Amazing Read

I loved this book when I read it years ago and actually still have it in my collection. When I saw that there was an audible version I just had to try it. I was not disappointed. Loved this book just as much now as back then and the narrator was brilliant I was hooked. Can't wait to now listen to Stars.

Kept me guessing

What a great book. lots of HEAs and all just what I would've liked to see. I only have one complaint. While Ms. Jennings was mostly a good performer, mispronouncing too many words and pausing in awkward places too away some of my enjoyment. Not enough to stop listening though!

ok storyline, but was 6 hours too long

What did you like best about Butterfly? What did you like least?

Unique story line, but not enough (or any) steamy sex. way too long

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

too many characters and was hard to figure out which character was which

How did the narrator detract from the book?

not a great voice.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

probably not
