Why????

What was the point of this book? it tells about Alani's pregnancy which we already learned and read about in "Butterfly".... it goes back over Morgan's relationship/ love triangle which we already read about and in much more detail in "Butterfly".... it hit on Bella and Henny brewing relationship a little but not much more to them than we already read about. The only thing I felt was new was that Alani thought Ethic was cheating but come to find out he was just planning a surprise baby shower for her and that was already told to us in the summary. Everything else was old news and repetitive from the other books. I hoped this one would have focused more on Alani having the baby and how their lives would be after the baby came. It was kind of a waste of money buying this book and a waste of time. I guess if you haven't read the "Butterfly" series yet this would be cool but this book was made after all those so I don't get the point of why is was even published.

❤❤❤

I missed Ethic!! But haven't missed Morgan's confused ass. I'm waiting for the final book of Butterfly because it doesn't take this long to tell that story. Great catching up. I'm Team Meek. I can't wait for Bella and Hendrix story! Wesleigh did a phenomenal job as always!

We need a Bella and Henny story

I loved this, sometimes just following Morgan’s story is draining and the other characters help to refresh things.

Bait and switch!

I will try not to reveal too much but the name of the story is completely misleading. After spending so many credits to have finality I shouldn’t be surprised by this switch. This story is more of a prelude to Morgan’s story. I’m honestly so irritated with how Ethic was broken up so much I’m not sure I even want to indulge in “Butterfly”. While Ashley Antoinette’s stories are engaging it can be repetitive and annoying at times. Audible should have merge some of these books together because independently they don’t make sense. I would say you can skip this book if you’re looking for closure. Maybe we will get more details in Butterfly.

I missed the Okafors!

It was fun to revisit my favorite characters while patiently waiting for butterfly 4 all year! I am enjoying the storyline developing between Henny and Bella. Bella is turning out to be a strong, healthy young lady. Self love, boundaries, confidence- I love it! This was nice a fix, but please release the next book already!
