Alluring Turmoil, Book 1 Bayou Stix by Skye Turner (Reviewed by Gladys #XOXOtheNerdGirl)

Alluring Turmoil Bayou Stix Book 1 Cover


 Book Synopsis:

Alexia Sloane is the twenty-six year old owner of the highly successful Louisiana coffee shop/bakery, Java and Sweeties. The past couple of years have been all she’s dreamed of and her business takes all of her focus, all of her heart.

 Jude Delecroix is the lead singer of one of the most famous rock bands in the country, Bayou Stix, and the man who broke Lexi’s heart.

 Lexi and Jude have a past.

 When Jude comes back to town eight years after leaving to fulfill his lifelong dream of being a famous musician and comes face to face with Lexi, forces collide, old hurts are brought to the surface, and life as these two have been living it will never be the same.

 There are two sides to every story, and what happens when the things you believed to be concrete suddenly crumble like ash and fade away?

 What happens when two people afraid to face the past, become involved in the present? Can they hope for a future?

Welcome to Louisiana where humidity and passion are high and things are not always what they seem.

***Gladys #XOXOtheNerdGirl Official’s Review***

 Old Wounds, First Loves and Pains that Linger far too long for you to want to bring back out of the box you stuffed it in; This is what hooked me into Alluring Turmoil. Not to mention her reference to BoonesFarm! Come on! You know we drank that cheap wine when we were young before we went out. Oh am I just showing a little tooooooo much of my racy past! Teeee heeeee…

 Language CHECK – I am giving the author a swear jar when she writes her next book and for every F Bomb she writes in her book she is donating a quarter to Nerd Girl. Just Kidding!! Graphic Sex – CHECK but not as bad as some books I have read and really I do ready on the naughty side. AHEM… But be prepared for THEM!!! LEXI AND JUDE are STREAMY and ELECTRIC! From the first moment their eyes meet they were devouring each other. STEAMY!!! SERIOUSLY! I WANT SOME OF THAT!

 He is coming back for her… SHE DOESNT KNOW IT YET… She hates him (but still loves him??)… AGAIN SHE DOESN’T KNOW IT YET…

 Lexi is all of us. That inner goddess that is a little sexy on the outside (well she is written to be a sex kitten – but we can’t all be so lucky) that is so insecure because her past was brutal. She heals (or so she things), moves forward with her awesome gay friend best friend Erick and her almost trashy other best friend BRANDI. Ugh she kinda annoyed me. Sigh… Anyway back to Lexi. Her life is perfect! She is a business owner, she is strong and is smart. But she doesn’t have him… She does NOT have HER Jude.

 Well the successful Rock Star comes home and she is nervous. He comes to see her and then BAM. All this stuff happens, GREAT stuff. Read the book, I am not going to tell you. We swirl around the life of Jude and Lexi for a month and take a fast pace tour of their sex life, their new and old feelings, their hurts and their ending…

 Now before I close let me just tell you what I didn’t like. Realistically, a Rock Star would have more fans about. He didn’t. I just wanted a little more background noise, people, fans, newspapers??? Where were they? Only once did we have a problem. Ok twice. Her shop was never flooded with fans. As famous as he was they HAD TO KNOW JUDE’S SCHEDULE. Even small towns gets floods of out of towners come in for a shot of a lead singer! Did Lexi make the town tabloid? Did her business get a spike in sales or customers because of who she now was??? Hmmmmmm…

 BUT YOU KNOW WHAT, as fast paced and unrealistically romantic as their relationship was I was actually very hooked to this book. It was very entertaining and the flashbacks in the book kept me flashing back to my life. So I thoroughly enjoyed the read!

 It’s New Adult at its finest! I tip my baseball cap to you Skye and wish you luck with Jessie and Blue. Or rather I wish Jessie luck with Blue…
