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.

Went on a ride with this one,hot sensual,jarring to the bones and come limp when finished kind of ride.
Got the blood flowing and removed any stiffness.
If any stiffness it was from not stepping away from this until finished. Can two people who loved each other before and crash into each other again make it work and love come out the winner? Jude and Lexi lead you down that road that when love still rages within it becomes the driver. Stepping into her world and the addiction that is driving him she flees and the chase is on.
It is said there is a fine line between love and hate and they have now crossed over to love once again. Courtship heats up between them full speed ahead. She does have some great friends-one crazy chick and roommate business partner who at one time was Jude's friend also who he has been with her through thick and thin. If a tattoo lover turns you on this has you covered and love the story behind that one. But oh jealousy can be a wicked master and it will want that to be all you carry trying to destroy the best of relationships. Hers certainly a big one unfairly so it would seem. the day she lets it overcome her you want to scream and shout "oh no you did not!"
Jude one special and one devoted dude, especially for a rock star and the stigma being one alone can carry to taint any character he could of said forget it and her. Glad it doesn't keep her down and picks herself up by her boot straps so to speak and like a arrow with one target in mind goes after her man.
Meltdown ending for reader turns to molten mush and leaves you ready to rock on for some more from this author.
5 STAR STELLAR!

Who doesn’t love a rock star? Well Jude Delecroix is a hot, super sexy rock star. He’s lived the life style in all aspects of a rock star but he’s ready for the one thing that got away, Lexi.
Jude, Lexi and the BFF Erik grew up together. They were never apart and also were around each other. They all went on dates together, hung out together and everything in between. They grew up and “went their separate ways.” Life lessons were learned, Jude became famous and Lexi and Erik opened a coffee/bakery shop.
When they finally got back together, electricity was seen from everyone. Their attraction and the feelings that they had for each other were, I’d say, a 10 on the richter scale. They both had to find their way back to each but it comes with insecurities and hurt feelings from the both of them.
“Jude, look at me. Please,” I whisper up at him…..”I’m here for you. I came for you. I’m not me without you. I love you. You are the other part of me. You own my body, my head, my heart, my soul. Without you, I exist…with you..I live.”
Author Skye Turner didn’t give us the typical love triangle of a rockstar. She gave us a love story that you felt from the first 20 pages of the book. The hero of the book wasn’t a total hard ass but hard enough to knock her socks, literally off. What an excellent job and I can’t wait to read about the band and their women!!
With a soft, tortured groan, his gaze leaves my eyes and moves to my mouth. I lick my lips in anticipation and watch him take a shaky breath. When he breathes, it presses him more deeply against me and it’s as if a switch is flipped. We reach for each other at the same time. Grabbing his neck, I pull his head down, knocking his cap and sunglasses to the floor, as he grabs my waist and lifts me up. Our lips find each other and it’s as if a bomb goes off. His tongue sweeps past my lips, and our tongues war with each other as our teeth clash. There is no gentleness here. It’s as if we want to consume each other. His hands roam my ass, squeezing my cheeks, and my legs lock around his waist, keeping his rigid length exactly where I want it. He throws his arm back and clears the counter behind me and lays me back, before he settles firmly between my thighs.
