Review: Alluring Turmoil by Skye Turner

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.

3.5 Star Review by Allison East

It's written in dual point of view, which I love. It is one of my favorite components in a novel.

I really liked the main character, Lexi. She had a fun loving personality and guts. Her relationship with her best friends Bradi and Erik were great. They were strong secondary characters and really added to the story. Jude is a hot leading man. He is your typical arrogant rock star, bedding a bunch of women, but there is only one woman that he has truly ever wanted, and it happens to be Lexi.

Lexi and Jude have been depressed for years because they both jumped to conclusions about each other and didn't bother to talk. They have succeeded in their jobs, but have failed in love. We can all say we have done it, but to be given a second chance is very rare. Lexi's keeps her past with Jude to herself, from Bradi. It shows how upset she still is over the end of their relationship. Jude's determination to win Lexi back is amazing. It said to me that he would do anything to protect what they had in the past hoping to create a future together.

This is book 1 in a series. We briefly meet the other members of Bayou Stix ~ Jessie, Liam, Cruz and Dade ~ and the good news is that they will each be getting their own book!
