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. +

***Contains graphic sex and language. Not for young readers.*** 
***Alluring Turmoil is a second chance love story and is nothing like a love story when strangers meet. 

4 of 5 stars

I received an arc for in exchange for an honest review...

I love a good rock star book!  Ever since that D-Bag, Kellan Kyle, claimed my heart in Thoughtless, I just get sucked in by the rock star! 

Alluring Turmoil by Skye Turner doesn’t disappoint in creating quite the swoon-worthy rock god, Jude Delecroix.  Doesn’t his name just roll off your tongue?  Seriously, I love him.  Jude is the lead singer for Bayou Stix, the hottest rock band on the planet.  At first I wasn’t so impressed by him and his cockiness but before the 15% mark I was hanging on to every word he spoke, because let’s face it….what is better than a rock star?  Oh how about a southern rock star, yeah I am a sucker for the southern boy.

Alexia Sloane is a great character too.  I love that she has a bakery called Java and Sweeties and is super dedicated to fulfilling her dream.  She is a strong woman who knows what she wants and goes for it.  She has a great personality and is easily able to have fun.  I love her chemistry with Jude, even when you think they despise each other, they are hot together.

The other characters in the book that really stand out to me are Eric, the gay best friend, who is the most amazing guy ever, and Bradi, Lexi’s other BFF.  I really love that they are fiercely loyal to Lexi and will do anything for her.  I feel like we will get to know more about these 2 characters in the next books so I am really stoked about that!  I also like that we meet the band, Bayou Stix.  I know that these guys have lots of stories and history to tell too, so I can’t wait!

What happens when Jude and Lexi cross paths?  Will they be able to leave the past behind or will it always haunt them?  If you love a good rock star and lots of hot steamy sex, you need to get to one clicking this book immediately!
