Blog Tour~~Flutter by @OliviaDEvans
Dylan Walker has spent six years trying to move on from the loss of his girlfriend, Presley Cooper. Motivated by grief and the desire to do for others what he couldn’t do for her, he burns the candle at both ends to make it through medical school. After graduation he moves west, putting as much distance as possible between his past and his present.
Or so he thought.
Unknowingly, Dylan has been set on a path that will destroy everything he thought he knew. All the pain, all the grief, was all for nothing. With the help of an unexpected ally, Dylan must find the answers and save the girl he loves before it’s too late.
A second chance at love.
But first, he must find a way to make her remember her past. Remember him. Remember everything.
Stephanie’s 4 Blush Review
Olivia Evans will have your heart fluttering! Flutter is full of angst, drama, highs and lows. There was also an element of mystery and suspense as well.
Presley Cooper and Dylan Walker take you on a journey. Their families were in the same social circles causing them to see a lot of each other when they were younger. Now as seniors in high school Dylan has finally worked up the nerve to ask Presley out.
“I love you, Presley. I’ve loved you for a long time. I have no idea how you didn’t see it, because I feel like it was the most obvious thing in the world. But none of that matters now. We’re here, we’re together, and you’re my girl.”
Life takes over. Things happen. Things change. People change. There were several very emotional moments that had me choked up. Choices were made and consequences were paid. The past and the present reveal so much about them and what led them to where they ended up….
Six years have passed. Once friends and then lovers, the former high school sweethearts are now both lost and lonely. Help comes from an unexpected person and the story twists even more. It is not all sad. There are many funny parts to this story and this is one of my favorite lines:
“I’m going to romance the shit out of you, baby.”
I would have liked an epilogue at the end to see what happened in the future especially if they had kids because I like my stories wrapped up all neat and tidy! But that didn’t change the book. Heartbreaking, warm & fluttering.

“You know, Dylan, there are many hospitals you could work at in New York. If I didn’t believe your moving to California with all those hippies was the best thing for you, I might beg you to stay.”
An unexpected laugh bubbled from his chest as he shook his head. His grandmother put up a good front about being accepting of different cultures and lifestyles, but try as she might, she was blue-blooded through and through. Growing up in one of the wealthiest families in New York had a way of doing that to a person. He had been like that once, before he lost her. The familiar hollowness that always came with her memory began to swell. He couldn’t deal with that right now.
“You’re the one who suggested I interview at Grace Hospital in the first place. If it weren’t for you, I never would have considered moving to California. Also,” Dylan exhaled. “I need a change, Grandmother. There are too many memories here. Too many ghosts.” When he noticed her frown, he looked away and pushed his messy dark blond hair out of his eyes. He needed a haircut. It was one of many things he’d neglected recently.
“I know you loved her, Dylan. I loved her too, but it’s been six years. It’s time to accept what happened and move forward.”
“Two,” he corrected, trying not to flinch. Her words felt like a physical blow. “Until two years ago, I still had hope that one day…” Dylan pulled in a deep breath and pushed his memories into the darkest corner of his mind. “That’s why I’m moving to California. Going to college at Penn State, staying close to home, those were things we were supposed to do together. I’ve lived the life we planned without her. I thought it would get better, but it hasn’t. I need to go where everything I see doesn’t remind me of her.”
