Oh boy! What a beautiful, emotional book with a very unconventional love story. But its more focused on the emotional love connection.

Michael Warner has been drifting in a numb haze since the death of his lover, who was killed by a drunk driver. As the anniversary of the wreck approaches, Michael’s grief grows more suffocating. Yet he must find a way through the maze of pain and secrets to live for their troubled young daughter. Out of the darkness comes a voice, a lifeline he never expected to find—Rebecca O’Neill, a development executive in the studio where he works as an electrician. Rebecca, a former celebrity left scarred from a crazed fan’s attack, has retreated from the limelight, certain no man can ever get past her disfigurement. The instant sparks between her and Michael come as a complete surprise—and so does her almost mystical bond with his daughter. For the first time, all three feel compelled to examine their scars in the light of love. But trust is hard to come by, especially when you’re not sure what to believe when you look in the mirror. The scars? Or the truth?

I've known about this book for a while, but to be quite honest some of the Goodreads reviews had me wondering if I should read it. Complaints about it being too sad, too focused on Michael's grief and his feelings for his partner who had died. I wish I'd jumped in sooner, because this book is absolutely wonderful, just beautifully done in every way I can think of.

As a bisexual woman, I'm often aggravated by the lack of bisexuality in romance or in fiction in general or when we ARE represented, it's often in a salacious, inaccurate fashion meant only to titilate readers. Deidre Knight really nailed what it is to be bisexual, the way you're vilified by the gay and straight communities alike and I can totally understand how once Michael's partner has passed, he has questions about where he belongs, loyalty, etc. There are so many moments here that feel so accurate I fidgeted while reading it. She did a beautiful job with the grief element of things, that even though Michael thought he was working on letting go of Alex, it was a process. The heroine, Rebecca is amazing and admirable. I will say I feel like the author cheated the readers a little with that fade to black sex scene because I think it would have added a depth of emotion that would have made the things that happen next that much more powerful.

I've seen reviews where readers say things like the choice of biological parents for Alex and Michael's daughter was weird but I have friends in same sex marriages where they made the exact same choice. I guess it reflects the readers lack of familiarity with gay marriages and children within that context, maybe.

I read this through Kindle Unlimited but had to buy it because it left such a strong impression on me. Beautiful work, Ms Knight.

so first, the cons: names occasionally aren't capitalized. the dialogue formatting is weird: often the speaker's sentences will have a line break in the middle. small things, but they take you out of the story as you try to figure out who's speaking.
on a larger scale, it seems unlikely that Alex's death wouldn't have made national news: a handsome, hotshot LA pediatric oncologist, killed by a drunk driver, while his daughter was in the car? Michael's father would've heard about it. also seems unlikely that the drunk driver would've gotten off in those circumstances. AND it would certainly be in local news for days on end. since Alex and M were married, his name would be in the news reports. Michael's boss would def know about it.

pros: but I still loved it--thought it handled Michael's person-specific sexual orientation really well, and how difficult it would be for other people to understand.
Andrea gets to be so much more than a plot moppet; I found her reactions to the accident, loss, and family secrets to be quite authentic.
The faith/religious bits were handled well; authors tend to have their characters over-explain the Godly stuff. Michael & Rebecca just give a brief "this is what this person thought" as it fits the story and then move on (it did seem odd to have the Episcopal priest the one with an issue about M's sexuality, though). It came close to, but avoided, my least favorite thing in discussing faith and grief: the dreadful "it was meant to be" brand of shallow theology.

read because of a smartbitchestrashybooks.com review; really glad I did, will certainly re-read

It's been awhile since I've read a tear-jerker but this one was pretty much a near constant stream, not bawling just a constant trickle. It was a true romance about the process of falling in love rather than about them finally hooking up. It was also pretty realistic with the obstacles in their way and they had a lot to overcome. An absolutely beautiful story between two scarred people that was very well written and basically took over my day because I didn't want to put it down.

Butterfly Tattoo is a beautiful story about two deeply scarred people who manage to overcome their fears and take a chance on love. Rebecca, a former actress, was scarred both physically and emotionally in an attack by a crazed fan and now struggles to move past the attack and create a new life for herself. Michael was devastated when the love of his life was killed by a drunk driver and struggles to rebuild his life and to reconnect with his 8 YO daughter who was also wounded in the accident and who bears physical and emotional scars of her own. They are scared to move forward, yet they are deeply attracted to each other and start a relationship that has the potential to heal them both if only they can move past their fears.

Deidre Knight does a great job of drawing the reader into both characters' lives and thoughts by alternating between Rebecca's and Michael's POV throughout the book. You feel the pain, the yearning, and the emotional growth of both characters. Rebecca and Michael are both deeply sympathetic characters and there are no villains, manufactured conflict, or "big misunderstandings" in this book. It's just a story about not being afraid to follow your heart and about the fact that true love is a beautiful thing that enriches our lives, no matter what form it comes in.

One note - potential readers should know that Michael is bisexual. I thought this was a fascinating and somewhat unique sideline in a book classified as a romance that was tastefully and realistically handled and added great depth to the story.

This novel was all that was promised. I loved the pure emotion found in each page. I was brought to tears more than once, and that takes a lot. I loved Rebecca's coldness at the beginning of the novel and how it was so apparent that it was to protect herself. I loved how just broken Michael was at the beginning and how they both eventually worked through their drama to find away to each other. I will say that the one problem that I had with the novel was the changing first person viewpoints. I loved the novel through and through, but the way it would switch between the first person of Michael's p.o.v. and Rebecca's p.o.v. took me out of the emotion and the novel too much. I still loved this novel.
