Buy on Amazon
Can two tortured souls find the beauty in each other?
Party girl, Nikki Kraemer is terrified when she wakes up tied to a dirty mattress in a basement that bleeds and breathes death. Her reality grows more terrifying as she battles her addiction at the mercy of her deadly captor.
This is no ordinary day. Issac Burns has a dangerous secret that has eaten away his moral integrity for ten years. This is the day he will confront his inner demon . . . but Nikki is no ordinary woman. She is certainly not what Isaac expected.
This romantic thriller dives into some dark subject matter and is not for the faint-of-heart. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK.
“…we can’t escape our past, but sometimes in the dark mirror reflecting our life, we can heal and trace an outline of something resembling the person we were meant to be.”
In her Forward, T.L. Fisher describes Butterfly Trap as “a new and somewhat awkward pursuit” in comparison to her usual romance novels. This is the first book I’ve read from Fisher so I have no means of comparison, however, I will say the story is not only creative but also daring and brave.
The story of Nikki Kraemer and Isaac Burns is a journey down some of the darkest paths any person could embark upon. As Fisher states in her synopsis, “read at your own risk”. Readers will likely find it hard to relate to some of the disturbing subject matter contained in these pages. However, the reality is that these are matters that are a very real part of many people’s lives. Abuse, addiction, life choices that send us down paths we never wanted for ourselves. So keep an open mind and let this book take you down some dark, often overlooked paths of our society. In the end, Butterfly Trap is a story of redemption, finding ways to forgive ourselves for our failures, and overcoming some of the worst of what life has to offer.
Add to that a rather unexpected yet steamy, whirlwind romance between two tortured souls and Butterfly Trap is a recipe for a very intriguing romantic thriller that is dark and ultimately, beautifully tragic.
