Product Description

Product Description

Romantic Suspense, Mystery Book, Urban Fantasy, Alpha Male, Paranormal, HEA

A young woman falls for a gorgeous, powerful man who has been secretly genetically altered.

My friends say Hunter's dangerous.
They say he's a threat to everyone in Deep Cove.
But I'm not so sure.
As he stands before me in this crowded club with the lights shining around us,
I catch something good under Hunter's dark facade.

Something decent and profound.
I don't know who or what to believe.
But I will find out the truth.

Aeris is looking forward to a much needed vacation. But when she meets Mr. Tall-Dark-and-Handsome━whose eyes happen to flash like a cat's in the dark━she ends up in trouble way over her head. Pursued by villainous scientists, all she wants is to get back home again. Yet her every move only entangles her deeper in the miraculous and dangerous world she's uncovered.

Wyshynski ratchets you up inch-by-inch, slowly, slowly━then tips you over the edge and sends you racing down the other side, all the way to the startling finish. Her fresh voice is addictive.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 AMAZING STARS Dec 4 2015
By Carlene - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Aeris is home with her dad for the summer after accepting a prestigious role as a concert violinist. She's hanging out with her old friends, spending time with her over-cautious father, and getting some seriously odd looks from the handsome Dr. Hunter Cayman. After a night out at the local nightclub, things are changing and quickly. What is behind the gates of the Phoenix Research Lab for Highly Contagious Diseases, why is her dad so against the company, and why does everything seem so familiar? As her curiosity increases, she finds herself learning about the mother she lost as a child and her father's desperation to protect her. It may not be enough to keep her away from Hunter though, something about him just keeps drawing her in despite the warnings and the secrets he seems to be hiding. What she finds will change everything.

I went into this book with the basic blurb every other reader gets, so I didn't expect anything when I opened up to the first chapter. The Butterfly Code stole my attention away from the very start. Not only are we immediately introduced to Aeris' old friends and the enigmatic Hunter Cayman with his flashing eyes, but Sue Wyshynski does an amazing job of setting the scene, the relationships, and giving you a glimpse of what's to come. You see, Hunter is older and her father has warned her to avoid his research lab at all costs, but Aeris seems to lose all common sense when it comes to him. I was obsessed as soon as I knew we had a forbidden relationship plot. Not only that, it's a completely new story line, because there is a scifi mix in this book. There's romance, action, suspense, and a twist you won't ever see coming. I loved the characters, every single one of them. Aeris is always curious, for a classic violinist she sure seems interested in adventure. She's a brave character whose POV is super entertaining to read from. I loved her thought process and her individuality. On the other hand, our two main men, Gage and Hunter, are super intriguing as well. Gage, one of Aeris' best friends, is the brooding type and his role in this book is so much more than just a friend. He's got quite a history, a huge secret, and I really liked his relationship with Aeris. Hunter is mysterious, dangerous, and about the hottest thing any of our characters have ever seen. The entire town seems to despise him, every woman lusts for him, and his attitude is that of a bad boy. He had a lot more depth to him that I expected him to and as the story grows he brings a lot to the table. He seemed to have new secrets after every page turn and even once I closed the book I felt like I had more to know about him. Every character is not what they seem and no plot line is ever what you are expecting as a reader.

I loved the use of symbolism in this book and the futuristic elements of transhumanism, that is the creation of superhumans. She successfully takes humanity into the future, mixing it with romance, drama, and action. Wyshynski's descriptions are vivid, everything we saw as the reader means something later on, from names to just small conversations between characters. The foreshadowing kept me curious, on my toes the entire time, and when the twists happened I was shocked to find it opposite of what I thought would happen. Everything flowed so well and at a swift pace. There was no over complication and I felt like this book could easily reach across many demographics.

I might have loved this book, can you tell? I have pulled away from the paranormal/scifi books I used to love, but this transhuman story might have pulled me right back in. This is a book that readers of all ages and all genre preferences could read and enjoy. I loved the well-developed characters, the realistic near-future story line, and the intrigue of the mystery that Aeris is so desperate to figure out. I cannot wait for a sequel and really hope this novel has the popularity it deserves.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5++++++ Stars! Easily one of my favorite reads this year! Dec 4 2015
By Stacy~Biblio Belles Book Blog - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
​From the very first few pages of this book to the very last page, I was completely and utterly consumed. I had read the blurb a while back, so when it came time to actually read the book I had already forgotten what it was supposed to be about. So I went into this book totally blind to the story, and holy crap am I glad that I did, because I was able to have a better reading experience than I ever could have imagined. This story truly moved me, and this book has now become one of my favorites of this year.

I’m not even sure how to break this book down because it was so many things rolled into one. If I had to describe it in a genre sense I would call it a new adult/romantic suspense/science fiction marvel! I could easily see this being turned into a movie, EASILY! And more than that, I want to, and I would pay good money to watch that movie!

Aeris Thorne is a young woman who recently graduated from Juilliard, she’s a very talented violinist who’s just trying to figure out what to do next in her life. It’s pretty much laid out for her though, considering her talent. She has a bright future with plans already in place. She decides to stay with her dad for the summer in Deep Cove, Maine, before heading off to New York in the fall. And can I say how much I LOVE the setting of this book, it really truly added so much to the story. Everything from the cool weather to the low creeping fog had a place in this story, if weather and climate could be its own character, in this book it definitely would.

Hunter Cayman… Oh Hunter. This man is just, ohhhhhh myyyyy. Is that a good description? Wait, my apologies, DR. Hunter Cayman is the elusive mystery that has Deep Cove whispering and wondering about everything. He’s young, in his late twenties, he’s hot, and he’s also a doctor at a research facility that supposedly tests highly contagious diseases. If that’s not enough to keep a small town talking, I’m not sure what is. The facility alone is controversial to the town, and the mystery behind Hunter and his friends is even more intriguing.

These two immediately have some sort of crazy chemistry going on, but it’s not your typical romance, lust filled kind of chemistry that you would think of, except that it is. But it’s not. I can’t really go much further into the story because like I said before, there is SO much stuff going on. Not too much, I just don’t want to spoil anything. This story has it all! Mystery, angst, danger, twists and turns galore, dark secrets, love, hate, and just about every emotion you could think of.

The Author paints a beautifully descriptive picture of everything she wants you to see, hear, and smell. It was such an amazing experience reading her descriptions, I can’t praise her enough. I could smell every smell, see every movement and touch every object as if it were right in front of me. It was completely mesmerizing and all consuming. It felt like I fell into the story, and who doesn’t crave that when reading a wonderful novel. Just writing this review, I want to jump back in. The writing was so SO great!

There are so many characters in this book, good guys, bad guys, mysterious guys and girls, friends and family members, but my favorites were Aeris and Hunter. They were both so strong, and captivating and perfectly flawed. Hunter was tough as steel, and at the same time soft and warm. He was everything in this book. And Aeris complimented his character so well, she’s seriously an awesome heroine that I truly loved. I don’t normally read books with sci-fi stuff at all, like ever! And like I said, I didn’t even know it was coming, but I am so happy that I went in blind because I might have missed out on one of the best books I’ve read this year. So please, PLEASE don’t let that scare any of you romance junkies away because this book deserves your attention, it was beautiful and rare and it totally filled my heart in every way. And I can’t wait for more, there is second book coming out and I have no clue when, but I need it like yesterday!

5.0 out of 5 stars A real Wow Oct. 15 2015
By Sharon Brown - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition

WOW! Romance. Action. Intrigue. All wrapped into a unique new twist that I won't explain as it would be a spoiler. Trust me. It's awesome. When musician Aeris Thorn visits her father in a small town on the cost of Maine, she meets Dr. Hunter Caymen and is inexplicably drawn to him. It's not because he's handsome, successful and has all the trappings of wealth. There's something more. Unexplainable. An invisible bond that links them together as soul-mates. The intensity of this attraction is ridiculous. They've just met, but she can't stop thinking about him. Not even when her father and friends warn her off the research scientist.

While this is not a vampire story, or written for a teen audience, fans of the Twilight series will fall in love with THE BUTTERFLY CODE. I can't wait for book two . . . and there had better be one!

I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars From the perspective of a genuinely new adult. Oct. 16 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
As a newcomer into the literary pool of New Adult, Sue Wyshynski has done a great job on this suspenseful . This book is pulls you into the middle of Aeris Thorn's life and it is as tricky for the reader to let go as it is for the character herself. I was able to finish this book in the span of a day (speed reading is my super power) and I was equally frustrated and excited to reach the end, as happens with a good book. I found that I connected to Aeris and as she goes along her...journey. I'm not good at summarizing without revealing all the good bits, I am sure someone else on this forum has done a far better job.

What I can say is that it is a great read if you like a little mystery in your life, or the prospect of a handsome doctor with secrets being at the focus of just such a mystery. I would definitely recommend this book to someone who likes the romance and intrigue set in a story that is not so intense it crushes your soul, certainly no soul crushing here. Though I must admit if the next one doesn't come out in a reasonable amount of time the crushing may still happen.

But what do I know? Give it a gander yourself, you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars When's the film coming out? Dec 3 2015
By MariaM - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Hollywood? Hello? Studios should be scrambling to get the rights for this one. Have you read an author and thought they were perfect? Never faltering in any type of scene? Well, Sue Whyshynski is one of those authors. Words just flow, creating super evocative scenes that you can actually experience with your senses. From mind-numbing terror to bone-melting attraction, Sue's got you. Exciting chase scenes, sizzling tension, darkness and mystery in vibrating settings. It never goes wrong.

The story has a strong sci-fi theme with sprawling tentacles, encapsulating such genres as thriller, urban fantasy and romance. My one grievance (not even that) is that a story that's explicit in dark scenes and violence should not shy away from love scenes especially when the attraction between the hero and the heroine sizzles from Page 1.

The Butterfly Code is a book that made the Top 3 of my 2015 Best Reads list. I highly recommend it to readers of any genre.

I was offered this book in exchange for an honest review but also bought my own copy. I always do that when I truly enjoy a book.
