Book Description

***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.



Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book took me by surprise. I had no idea what I was getting into, but I was more than pleasantly surprised. Skye Turner knows how to write a character." - Babu's Bookshelf

"
I devoured this book and refused to go to bed until I finished it! Jude and Lexi make sure a perfect pair. They laugh, they love, they fight, they make up and they feel real. Their dialogue isn't stiff or "scripted." Skye Turner does an awesome job of writing this story so that the reader feels the love they shared in the past and how it's still there when they're older. The connection, the desire, and the love that even the hottest rocker in the country can't deny." - AD Justice "ADJ"
"This was an electric story that captured the relationship between Lexi and Jude in a way that made you not want to put it down! The storyline developed brilliantly. Looking forward to reading her next work." - Celeste Goodwin
" Skye Turner is an awesome writer! She keeps you enthralled with the story and characters. All of the characters are developed so well! Love this book!!"

"The story is fantastic and what a great author who makes you feel! When they are hating each other and mad, so are you....when they are laughing, so are you...and when they love, OMG!!!! Woah! You will fall in love with Jude Delecroix! He is so sexy & sweet you will be melting." - Melanie C.
"I have found a New Author and a New Series that had me saying I want MORE MORE NOW!!!" - Lisa M. Filipe "A Tasty Reader"

5.0 out of 5 stars If you love Kellan Kyle you will love Jude Delecroix September 13, 2013
By Roni G.
Format:Kindle Edition
MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!!!!

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jude September 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Bradi that girl is all kinds of cray-cray and she's perfect as Lexi's bff, "Lexi! WHAT THE EFF? Why are you and Jude Delecroix..., Jude effing Delecroix, eye effing and strangling each other from across the room? Do you know him? Lexi, tell me now! DO.YOU.KNOW.HIM?" Yep all sorts of cray-cray. Jude I have to give him props when he makes his mind up to do something he's all gung-ho on making it happen, "I'm a man on a mission. And my mission is to get Alexia Stone to fall in love with me again...only this time...this time she's not walking away. She's mine. She's always been mine, and this time, dammit this time, I'm effing keeping her." And he's just all sorts of cute when he's flustered, "um...what?" Jude's cheeks get pinker and he starts shuffling his feet from side to side. "Well, I asked if you wanted to join me for a bit, for a cup of coffee. Well, you can have coffee. I'll just have my water. Not that you have to drink coffee, you can drink whatever you want. I mean if you want to. Join me that is. You don't have to. S***. What I meant was will you join me for a cup of coffee, Lex?" And sometimes the boy doesn't know when not to laugh, "come on, baby. Don't be like that. Are you seriously made right now? Baby, I'm sorry. I'll never laugh at you again. I swear!" Lexi sometimes likes to be the one taking the lead in aspects of their life, love a take charge girl, "Lexi reaches down and pulls me by my di**. "Careful, baby. That is sort of attached to me, and well, I have more plans for that in a bit!" Jude also doesn't like Lexi showing off her goods to other people, "no, that is not clothes...you...you're all on display...You...Too much of you is on display!" He looks at the guys who are blatantly appreciating my attire. He growls. "Stop effing looking at her, a**holes!" Needless to say I enjoyed Lexi and Jude's effed up relationship and can't wait to see what/who comes next from the band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow hot hot hot!!! November 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow what a great great story. I could not put this book down. I read it in several hours. Lord have mercy Jude is the ultimate sex rock God for sure. Oh my Lord! I have read some sexy books but that man knows what he's doing. Oh my!!!! I love Lexi too. Check I loved all of these characters in this book. Her friend Bradi is a feisty little thing. I love how Jude and Lexi connect so well together. I loved how Jude was totally oblivious to other women once he got Lexi back. See not all rock stars are cheaters. I'm just glad Lexi finally figured it out. It's a shame it took them eight years of heartache to get to that point. Great great read I absolutely loved it!

4.0 out of 5 stars I was givien an ARC for an honest review. September 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Alluring Turmoil tells the story of Jude and Lexi, it starts eight years after what seems to be a bad breakup between the two of them. When Jude is suddenly a part of Lexi's life again her world gets flipped upside down.

I have to be honest, this book didn't grab me at first. The beginning was similar to another book I've read recently and I felt like I was reading the same book again. That changed about half way through it though and I really enjoyed it.

It does have some good sex scenes in it and manages to make the book not about the sex, but about an actual storyline, which is really nice.

The characters are believable and I adore Erik, Lexi's best friend and business partner.

This book takes a lot of twists and turns, there are flashbacks and things happen quickly, but Skye managed to make everything flow really well overall.

Definitely would recommend this book.
