Overview

***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.
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.

I loved this book!! Skye made you feel like you were actually there with Jude and Lexi witnessing everything!! There were points of sadness, anger, lust, love....it was just a really well written piece. My only regret is that we will have to wait to find out what happens to the rest of their story.Thank you Skye for sharing Jude and Lexi's story with us and I hope you will continue to write more on these great characters.

I really enjoyed Alluring Turmoil! It was well written and I loved reading a book that had more to it than the usual rock star 'I'm all that' main character. I loved how Jude was unafraid to express himself to Lexi! It was a great book, and I'll be looking for the next in this series!

**ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review** I’ll be honest and say I wasn’t expecting much from this book when Skye contacted me and asked if I would ARC read this book. Yeah it is the type of book that I read but the past few ‘rock star’ themed books I’ve read have been lacking and quite frankly I’ve been disappointed in them. Alluring Turmoil is far from lacking and Skye Turner has impressed me with her debut book. This book is enough to send you for that many cold showers you could possibly end up with hyperthermia. This is not your typical ‘rocker’ book. Yes the lead male, Jude is your typical bad boy rock star; sex with groupies and rock n roll are his life. He is amazingly HAWT and has if the book wasn’t already as hot as it is you would be having a lot of fantasies about Jude (sigh). Lexi, mmmm Lexi, I can honestly say that at first I quite liked her character but then she started to bug me and then I loved her again. Whhhaaaaaaattttt?! I’ve never gone full circle like that with a character before. Sure I’ve hated ‘em and then loved ‘em or loved ‘em and then hated ‘em. But I’ve never gone love – hate – love……… Well done to Skye! The storyline had me gripped and had me turning page, after page, after page and before I knew it I read the whole thing in one setting. I also LOVED the secondary characters in the book. The world and relationships that Skye has created in this book feels real and this drags you into the book until you are fully consumed. If you’re a fan of rocker themed books then this is a must read. Hell, even if you aren’t then this is still the book for you.

Okay ladies. If you loved Kellan Kyle you are going to love Jude Delecroix. OMG I took on this book as a beta reader and it was one of the best decisions I've made. I was hesitant because I was not familiar with the author's work, but let me tell you that Skye Turner is AMAZING!!!! I was captured within the first 2 chapters of this book and sometimes it takes at least 4 or 5 for me to get into a book. The book is about Jude and Lexi, and how a misunderstanding can cause so much pain especially when it could have been so easily avoided. Jude has so much passion and so much love for Lexi. It really pulls at your heart when you see the depth of his love for her. Here is an excerpt of a letter he wrote to her before he left on one of his tours: “Lexi, I woke up this morning with you in my arms and thought to myself, I want to do this for the rest of my life. You in my arms is perfection. It’s cosmic. It’s simply the way we are supposed to be. I couldn’t wake you. You were sleeping so soundly. I know that you and I are moving fast. It’s exhilarating. When I’m with you Lex, it’s like we were never apart. A lot has happened between then and now, but the now is what I want us to concentrate on. Now it’s you and me. You are what’s important. We are the only thing that matters to me anymore. What happened back then is irrelevant. I want you. I want you always. You are what I see when I look into the future. 5 years from now, 10 years from now, hell 50 years from now, you are there. As a teenager and young man, I loved you. You were my everything. But I didn’t really understand what that meant. Now, as a man, I love you even more. You are the reason I smile, Lex. You are the first thing I want to see when I wake up and the last thing I want to see before falling asleep. I want to see you smile every day and I want to know that I’m the reason you’re smiling. These next few weeks are going to be hard for me. I’ve gotten so used to you, to sleeping with you, to talking with you, to kissing you, to just being with you, that’s it kind of hard for me to imagine me functioning without you. Know that I may not be next to you, but that you are with me. Always. In my head and in my heart. You’re a part of me again. The most important part of me. Lex, you own me. You own my heart. I left the keys for my house and my car with you. I want you to use them and I want you to give serious consideration to moving in with me when I get back. We’re adults. I know what I want and what I want is you. It’s always been you. I see no need to beat around the bush. I want you. In my life, in my arms, in my bed. Every night. Think about it… You own my heart. You own everything I am. I love you Lex. Jude Seriously??????? I started crying when I read that. Now you see why I think he compares to Kellan. Man Lexi is one lucky woman!!! Lexi is successful in her career and has a great business going for her. However, she is very insecure and has so much doubt in Jude. This insecurity and doubt destroyed them for 8 years. Lexi is not as wishy washy as Kiera but she definitely could use some faith and belief in their love. As far as the other characters in the book, I completely loved her best friends Erik and Bradi. Erik is a sweetheart and takes such good care of Lexi. He’s like the big brother every girl wishes they had. (I’m the oldest so of course I wanted a big brother, and plus we are all girls ¿) Oh and of course I can’t forget about Bradi!! She’s the best friend that is fiercely protective of Lexi and has no problem speaking her mind. I love her….lol You will not be disappointed with this book. I look forward to more books by Skye Turner. Mark my words……and prepare yourself for an AWESOME book and love story.

Alluring Turmoil by Skye Turner is a good read. The story line is a terrific idea, second chance love and all of that, but contained enough inconsistencies that it lost me. I know, I know, it is erotica, so plot lines are secondary. I get that, but even the erotic went too far for my tastes. Timelines simply did not match up.

another whiny rocker book. the ending was disappointing and unrealistic.   the dialogue was weak. it's only saving grace was that the writing was good.
