This book was in a word... HOT! Not your typical love story, Set in current day Louisiana, 26 year old Alexia Sloane half owner of Java and Sweeties, is living her dream. That is until Jude Delecroix, lead singer of Bayou Stix, walks into her shop. "I slowly turn around, as if pulled by an imaginary cord, but I already know what I'll see.My mind sees everything as if in slow motion. My eyes travel the length of a slim, but cut, 6'1 body, taking everything in, from the tips of his black boots to the top of his spiked dirty blonde purple tipped hair. I notice all of the tattoos and the scruff that looks as if it's a permanent part of a chiseled face. Oh **** ME!" As if the description of the steamy leading man isn't enough to keep you reading, the dynamic between all of the characters certainly helps. Alexaia's best friends are a riot especially Bradi, who even though she is in a committed relationship, tells Alexia "Besides, I've already told you, if Jude Delecrouix motions my way, I'm dropping my panties before he can blink and change his mind. I would so have his rock-star babies." An Eric her totally hot but disappointingly gay roomie :) you are guaranteed to laugh out loud!
Skye Turner most definitely has a way with words, and more than once while reading this book I caught myself wishing that my husband would sweet talk me the way Jude can sweet talk a woman! When I wasn't turning to mush after reading declarations like " No. The moment I saw her, I was just me. I was just the boy Alexia Sloane promised to love forever, and the boy who made her his world. I would have given her anything, would have given up everything just to keep her happy... just to have her stay mine.", I was clenching my legs from the steaming HOT, and I mean x rated HOT s*x scenes! Skye Turner leaves little if any to the imagination (Jude has some great technique, and 9 1/2 inches to work with) and in my opinion she blows some of the scenes from 50 shades right out of the water!
With a great story line, characters you can't help but fall in love with ( I really need to find myself an Eric) and "Sexy Rock Gods" what's not to love?
Oh and if you didn't get enough of Bayou Stix, you can get even more of them in Jessie and Blue's story Alluring Seduction! Thank you Mrs. Turner !!! That one's next on my TBR list
Blue and Jessie are explosive, both in and out of the bedroom (I don’t think they actually make it to a bed).
Blue is stuck tagging along on tour with Bayou Stix after walking in on her Fiancé, the son of the owner of the magazine she works for, banging his intern on his desk ,as some sort of punishment in her mind. She’s gone months watching Jessie screw anything on two legs and she’s finally over it.
Jessie is your typical man-whore, relishing in the attention he gets from his female fans, but getting rid of them in the morning can be hell. He can’t stand the fact the Blue is on tour with them, she’s hated him forever (at least that’s what he thinks).
The love/ hate relationship between these two characters is electrifying! I love their digs at each other and their snarky back and forth bickering had me laughing!
Skye Turner did an amazing job bringing these characters to life! I thought I would be disappointed because I loved Jude and Lexi so much and I was positive that any follow up story without them would be lackluster…. My God was I wrong! Jude may have been my first, but after Jessie, I am fast becoming a Bayou Stix groupie!
Bradi, who in the first 2 books has always come across as so confident and carefree, has her shields peeled away layer by layer to reveal that she too suffers from insecurites which, in my mind makes her even more relatable. Skye takes us back to the begining in this book and we get to see how relationships were built between Bradi and Micha as well as between Erik and the man he had his first "open" relationship with.
I loved getting to know these characters even better, these are fiercely loyal, fun loving, crazy protective friends. The kind of friends that you will have for a lifetime. I love that i was able to share in their love, their laughter, live vicariously through them during the hot, and I mean smokin, sex scenes, and feel for them when they are in pain.
Bravo Mrs. Turner on another 5 star read!! I can't wait for the next book...... Give it to me!! Give it to me now!!!
