(Book One in the Bayou Stix Series)



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. 

***Contains graphic sex and language. Not for young readers.***

Rating: 4 Stars

I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for and honest review   

Alluring Turmoil is aptly named because the relationship between Jude and Lexi starts out very messed up.  Jude was missing from Lexi’s world for 8 years after he broke her heart.  Then one day he appears in her coffee shop.  Jude is the only man she’s ever loved and he broke her.  Then they find each other again and the steamy romance begins. This book was great and I really love a “rock star” romance.  I certainly fell in love with Jude in this book, he was hot, sexy and his POV was really written well.  This book switches POV between Lexi and Jude and I found this refreshing.  I have read books with switching POV before and sometimes it can be quite confusing but not in this book, it worked great. 

This is book one in a series of books which will explore the other band members of Bayou Stix (Jessie, Liam, Cruze and Dade), and it seems each will have their own book.

One of the things missing was the paparazzi and any sort of body guards for someone so big in the music industry he seemed to be able to move around easily with not much interruption by fans.  For some reason I found this a bit unbelievable.  There were a lot of repeated words and sentences, with some grammatical and spelling issues but mostly I found the story flowed quite well.

This book is good, I enjoyed it for the most part and it is well worth the read.  Well done Skye Turner on a great “rock star” romance.


With a soft, tortured groan, his gaze leaves my eyes and moves to my mouth. I lick my lips in anticipation and watch him take a shaky breath. When he breathes, it presses him more deeply against me and it’s as if a switch is flipped. We reach for each other at the same time. Grabbing his neck, I pull his head down, knocking his cap and sunglasses to the floor, as he grabs my waist and lifts me up. Our lips find each other and it’s as if a bomb goes off.  His tongue sweeps past my lips, and our tongues war with each other as our teeth clash. There is no gentleness here. It’s as if we want to consume each other. His hands roam my ass, squeezing my cheeks, and my legs lock around his waist, keeping his rigid length exactly where I want it. He throws his arm back and clears the counter behind me and lays me back, before he settles firmly between my thighs.
