At age fourteen, Zelda Rossi witnessed the unthinkable, and has spent the last ten years hardening her heart against the guilt and grief. She channels her pain into her art: a dystopian graphic novel where vigilantes travel back in time to stop heinous crimes-like child abduction-before they happen. Zelda pitches her graphic novel to several big-time comic book publishers in New York City, only to have her hopes crash and burn. Circumstances leave her stranded in an unfamiliar city, and in an embarrassing moment of weakness, she meets a guarded young man with a past he'd do anything to change . . . Beckett Copeland spent two years in prison for armed robbery, and is now struggling to keep his head above water. A bike messenger by day, he speeds around New York City, riding fast and hard but going nowhere, his criminal record holding him back almost as much as the guilt of his crime. Zelda and Beckett form a grudging alliance of survival, and in between their stubborn clash of wills, they slowly begin to provide each other with the warmth of forgiveness, healing, and maybe even love. Contains mature themes.… (mere)

A sweet romance about 2 people who had issues that they helped each other deal with. ( )

FGMAMTC Blog Review
Zelda and Beckett have painful pasts. Both are struggling every moment with the emotional baggage. The author does an excellent job of putting the reader in their shoes. I easily understood their actions and feelings. I love these characters and how they don't play romance games. I suppose because they have seen firsthand how real consequences can be, they take life seriously. Both characters are sort of stuck and having trouble moving forward. They help to bring each other around to a better place. I definitely recommend The Butterfly Project. It's entertaining, but it also leaves you thinking. It's not a book that you can just finish and forget. The occasional drawings are a bonus that really adds to the storyline.

I'm on a never-ending quest to find the right balance of sweet, sexy, and angsty for my new adult reads.

I think we all are. Emma Scott serves up a pretty good dose, though I quickly grow tired of her story-within-a-story gimmick (This and [b:In Harmony|36053619|In Harmony|Emma Scott|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1516627623s/36053619.jpg|57630696]..) This is the story of two damaged, struggling characters and how easy it was for them to fall in love. I found some things terribly out of character that were used as plot devices, and other things eye-rolling sappy. Sometimes that works, and other times it's a big fat "no thanks" This book just lacked a certain intensity in the relationship to balance that saccharine feel. I mean there was no mess left in this book, none.

I honestly don't know where to go with Emma Scott. Most friends loved this one, I did not. I half wonder if I'm over her. Something's just not clicking. ( )

This was promising. A tad melodramatic and all those bits of hope and change you would find in a Nicholas Sparks novel.

For the genre, I thought the characters were written well. the story was nicely fleshed out, and it had a lot to offer. It is a bit of a diamond in the rough for me as a reader who isn't a big fan of romances, but is dipping her toes in to push against my comfort zone. The characters in this story were not abusive or manipulative, and the plot didn't have to take a backseat. Not bad. I will probably pick up another Emma Scott in the future. ( )

This was a cute book. Beckett is barely scraping by in New York. He's a convicted felon on probation and trying to make a life. Zelda came to New York to get her graphic novel published, but it's too dark and no one is giving her an offer. They meet and decide to help each other. They fit well together, both trying to overcome their traumatic pasts. There was some drama, but no real fighting between Beckett and Zelda. I liked the graphic novel and the side characters were sweet. A couple times I felt like it dragged, but overall not a bad book. ( )
