I really enjoyed reading The Butterfly Collector, the story of Peter Calliet, a man at the edge of a crisis, angry with a life he feels he's got no control over.
He has it all, a prolific property development business, money and a perfect girlfriend who is planning their perfect wedding and a very settled and organized life to follow. But that's not what he wants.
So when he encounters the mysterious and reluctant Natalie, he takes on the challenge to seduce her, risking all in the process.
Peter is not necessarily likeable but he has a lot to deal with, including a demanding teenage daughter and the death of a friend years before still hunting him.
But ultimately he, like all of us, is just in search of happiness, at the risk of hurting other people.
The Butterfly Collector depicts an honest and realistic view on life in general and relationships in particular from a man's perspective.
The Butterfly Collector is available to buy on Amazon in Kindle or paperback version.
