Life just gave EMERSON VAUGHN the middle finger. When her husband leaves her for a younger woman, and then her daughter heads off to college, the Facebook perfect life she identified with is gone. At forty-three years old, Emerson is a divorced jobless empty nester who needs to reinvent herself and revamp her libido. Her best friend offers her a luxurious post divorce gift, an all expense trip to New York City, with one contingency. Emerson will have to see a Sex Therapist to deal with abandonment and self intimacy issues.
Prominent Sex Therapist, DR. ALEXANDER JAMESON is known for his unorthodox therapy sessions. He incorporates physical experiences into his counseling. Putting aside her conservative views on sex, Emerson embraces everything she finds sexually taboo: tantric massage, voyeurism, and adult toys. Set in eclectic locations in New York City, Emerson realizes her divorce and age aren’t an expiration date on her sexuality, but an awakening. With palpable chemistry and sexual tension during their discussions, Dr. Jameson’s avoidant personality emotionally gravitates towards Emerson’s smart mouth.
As their week comes to an end, Dr. Jameson’s sessions not only serve as a catalyst for healing Emerson’s broken heart, but his own. She is torn between visiting Paris to accomplish a lifelong dream, or experiencing a second chance at love.

Get your fans, ladies! It’s hot in here! Butterflies by L. A. Nettles was fun and an alluring story perfect for readers who love sprinkles of sizzle in their romance. The plot was exceptional, the story was unique and educative, and the character development was brilliant. I lived vicariously through Emerson because she tasted slices of heaven. She was witty, had a great sense of humor, and was intelligent. There was so much laughter, too. Ashley is that friend that everyone needs, and Dr. Jameson? Oh, Lord! Nettles is a very descriptive writer and I needed air to get through some toe-curling scenes! However, I also learned some lessons. We should never lose ourselves or dreams to hold on to another person. Always choose you. Basil was another interesting character, and I think deserves a story. Thank you for a beautiful book.
