Description (from Goodreads.com): 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.***
My Review: Alluring Turmoil is a story about two lovers finding their way back to one another. This book is about one simple misunderstanding that caused years of sadness and pain. Jude and Lexi had a epic love when they were teenagers but they have spent the last eight years because of one misunderstanding.
Jude and Lexi are the perfect couple. Their relationship in the book isn't just sex but they actually talk and do things together. They support each other in their endeavors and genuinely love each other. The love in this book is real, not only between Lexi and Jude, but also with their friends and Jude's bandmates.
Erik and Bradi are so fiercely loyal to Lexi that they go as far as threatening Jude with physical violence if he ever hurts her again. The secondary characters and relationships in this book are great and so fun.
The letter that Jude writes to Lexi when he leaves for a few weeks is so sweet and had me tearing up. It is clear that he loves her so much, would do anything for her, and is so incredibly thankful that he has her back.
Skye Turner is an amazing author and Alluring Turmoil and Alluring Seduction are incredible books. I cannot wait to read more from her in the future.
Excerpt: "Suddenly, the hair on the back of my neck stands up as if I've just been shocked. Bradi is facing the door and her eyes go wide. 'Oh my God...Oh my God... OH MY GOD!'
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 blond 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 FUCK ME!' I gasp out.
Quick Opinion: I absolutely loved this book and I loved Alluring Seduction, which my review will be up tomorrow. Jude Delecroix sounds so sexy and sweet and I want a guy just like him. Jude and Lexi are the perfect match. I give Alluring Turmoil 5 stakes and I definitely want to read more.
