    1. Note: I was given a complimentary copy for an honest review.Holly lives in Butterfly Harbor - at least what's left of it. However, she's struggling to accept the change that is sure to come now that there's a new mayor. A mayor she voted against. A mayor that is bringing in a new sheriff to replace her father. Luke has bad memories of Butterfly Harbor, yet he's coming back at the request of one man - the man he's replacing as sheriff. The man he owes everything. The only man who ever believed in [...]

    2. 3.5 stars, rounding upHarlequin Heartwarming! I love this line of books. I'm always excited to be a part of reading and reviewing titles from this line because I know exactly what I'm in for. These books are sweet and clean and well, Heartwarming. :) Luke had a rough childhood. He made a big mistake and paid a heavy price but someone believed in him and gave him a second chance. Luke used that second chance and made something productive and good happen. Life is hard though and Luke returns to Bu [...]

    3. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. There is so much to love about this story. Ms. Stewart has a way of delving deep into a person’s heart and soul. I won’t go into detail but let me say this: Holly Campbell is carrying around a big ol’ bag of grudges and it is weighing her down. She has the most precocious little guy – her eight year old son Simon – who is just a riot. Reminds me of someone near and dear so I had some very big laugh out loud moments. Luke [...]

    4. The Bad Boy of Butterfly harbor is a really unique story. I love Butterfly too so the title really catch my attention quickly.Luke Saxon was the bad boy of the city. When he became the next sheriff, Holly and her son were absolutely livid. Holly still held a grudge for a long time for the accident in the past. Not to mention, she was reeling because Luke turned out to be a better man. It was much easier to hate him if he was still bad.Luke was a strong guy having a rough past. I couldn't imagine [...]

    5. The opening of this book really grabbed me. I loved the restaurant and the children. I also liked that our heroine's father had a role. I'm looking forward to hearing Paige's story.

    6. Let's start with what I didn't like about this book. Hmmm. Well, that was quick. lol. The cover hooked me, but I confess the title scared me a little. Since I'd not read anything by Anna J. Stewart before, I worried that this book might contain graphic scenes. But it's a Heartwarming, so I decided to take a chance. I'm glad I did. Heartwarming is definitely an apt description. Luke bumped Holly's father out of his job as sheriff, and Holly blamed him for her family's breakup. They had more than [...]

    7. The Bad Boy of Butterfly Harbor, despite its seemingly oxymoron-ish name, is a very sweet romance about redemption and second chances. I really enjoyed Holly and Luke's story. Luke, the former town bad boy, is returning to the place he never thought he'd see again--this time as its interim sheriff. He's not planning on staying long--he'll swoop in, finish up the previous sheriff's term, maybe accomplish some good in a town that's in desperate need of it, and then he's out of there.Holly is less [...]

    8. I've always been a sucker for a bad boy who comes back to a town from his youth and tries to makes up for past mistakes! This is such a book. But I have to say I really felt a strong connection to the hero, Luke. I've read several of these types of stories before and liked the main characters but Luke has to be among my all-time favorites! He just seemed real and fallible and I loved how the author didn't make him too macho in the beginning or too sappy at the end! I loved his humility and his d [...]

    9. Butterfly Harbor has seen better days. The town needs a lot of work restoring the properties since many of the houses and businesses are empty. Helping to rebuild the town is one of the things the new sheriff wants to do. Luke had a rough childhood in Butterfly Harbor and made a mistake as a teen. But having one man believe in him helped him make something of himself. When he came back as the new sheriff he expected to have a hard time with the people in the small town accepting him. But Holly s [...]

    10. When the trend is to blur the line between romance and erotica, stories as Bad Boy of Butterfly Harbor bring a sweet, clean air.The main themes of this story are: to make peace with yourself and second chances: to offer and accept them. Both themes are to be found independent, but also entwined; together they create a generous scene in which the characters, main or secondary, have their specific role as to exemplify different paths and the results of their different choices.But here it is not on [...]

    11. What is it about a bad boy? We all know they're wrong for us, but we just can't resist the challenge. But in this case, Holly doesn't want to just resist Luke, she wants to run the new sheriff out of town. Between dealing with her precocious, possibly felonious son and running her diner in the dying little town of Butterfly Harbor, Holly's got enough on her plate. She doesn't need a living, breathingd very sexyminder of the past.Luke comes back to town a better man than when he left it, thanks t [...]

    12. A beautiful story about people in a small failing community, fighting back to build up the town again, and the human destinies of the small town.I love Jake, the former sheriff of the town and Holly's dad. Him, Luke, Matt, they all had that ability to see more than just the act, to look deeper than the circumstances, and trust the person inside, trying to do what is right.Both Matt and Luke didn't have it easy growing up, but they had made something special out of their lives, something to be ad [...]

    18. The first in a series about Butterfly Harbor, the story of Holly Campbell, owner of the diner, and her precocious son, Simon, pulls at one's heartstrings from the first page.

He was the original bad boy who left and [...]

    22. I absolutely adored this book. Luke Saxon is my new book boyfriend. I cried happy tears, sad tears and sobbing tears for this man. I'm tearing up just writing this review. One of the underlying themes of this book is about addiction and how it affects the people who love the addict. It reflects how promises are continually broken until there is no trust left and how one can go own to gain peace once the addict is no longer in their lives.The drug in this story is alcohol.
