Alluring Turmoil is my debut novel, so of course I love it.
I completely fell in love with these characters and I pray all of my readers do too.
Jude and Lexi kept me up many nights, but I am quite pleased with the way their story played out.
Be aware: Alluring Turmoil is a second chance love story and is nothing like a love story when strangers meet.

I have one word to describe this book H-O-T! My suggestions to anyone before they sit down to read this book:
1. Have extra panties on hand.
2. Pick a comfy chair , because you will not want to get up.
3. Have a cold glass of water.
This book should come with a warning label that you are required to have an extra pair of panties on hand while you read. Oh did I say that already well here is another word you should know Jude Delecroix. Okay that was two words but let me just say it is a name you will
How I feel after reading this ... do not get angry but I will be a BITCH, here I go:

1) This book is so dull. I have to say (and I hate doing this) That I was not keen on this, to start I hated LEXI, She's the type of character I wanted to slap on more than one occasion.

2) I hate, I fucking hate books where the hero fuck with anything that moves and heroin fuck with only one person, THIS IS SEXIST.

3) The plot is so Mexican telenovela, really, you find your man fucking a bitch and you run, REALLY,
3ish stars for the story, 2 stars for that cover!

I tried really hard to like this book but I just couldn't connect with it. I gave Alluring Turmoil 2 stars mainly because the back story "rocked". Pun intended.

Jude and Lexi were in love as teenagers. Not just any love. That weak in the knees, once in a lifetime kind of love. Jude catches his big break and gets signed to a record deal. Something happens and they split. They both spend the next eight years being half the

I really liked this book. Lexi and Jude had great chemistry; the love scenes where hot and steamy. Lexi is very likable and has great friends and Jude is one hot rock star with tattoos. When Jude and Lexi see each other for the first time in eight years their reunion is combustible. They both have strong feeling for the other but don't know if the past will get in the way of them having a future. Lexi decides not to discuss the past which was a mistake but they both have to trust that their love ...more

I'm sorry but I can't continue.

At first I thought it was good, I liked the writing style. It was easy to read. But then I started to be annoyed because of why these two were separate. The author keeps it as it's a BIG secret.
At 50 % i was bored


So I went through different reviews to see what the big secret was and argh (view spoiler)

I COULD NOT PUT THIS BOOK DOWN! I was up half the night reading it!! sleepy gif photo: sleepy tumblr_lpaj9s4cBp1qawemm.gif
The only reason I couldn't finish in one day is because the lines started to blur together. LOL BUT I was reading it the next day as soon as I woke up and didn't put it down until it was finished.

That being said! WOW!! Are you sure this is Skye's first book?? book gif photo: Book bigbook1_e0.gif I gave this book a 5 star rating, but if I could have given her more I def would have. 5 star gif photo: 5 star gif easy_five.gif

Ahh we have a new rocker to drool over with a fantastic name, Jude Delecroix! He is just what you imagine, a hot, tattooed rock star with a sensitive side to boot. Sure he annoyingly buries his heartache in other women like most of these book guys do, but hey we keep on reading about them.

Lexi and Jude were best friends in their teens along with Eric. The more they hung out and the older they got, something started to brew between Lexi and Jude. Jude is a musician and even in high school has dre

**5 Sexy Rock God Stars**

I was given the ARC for an honest review. To be honest this is my first rock star romance. I didn't think I would like them, but Skye Turner has convinced me otherwise! Alluring Turmoil had me hooked from the moment Jude Delecroix walked into Java and Sweets! I loved, loved, loved Jude in this book! His POV was written wonderfully and showed him to be a complex character underneath his holy HOT shell. Lexi was a bit more of a mystery, but I think that added to the plot l
Ok I'm officially a crazy Skye fan!I loved this book and Holy shit woman you can pen some hot sex scenes.I was glued to my kindle from the very start of this book.Lets be real,who doesn't like a hot Rocker named Jude and his woman Lexi?My only bummer about the book is that I need to wait till next spring for book two.However,this story of Jude and Lexi wraps up nicely and I'm hoping that they make repeated appearances in the future books.To all my book friends out their,don't miss reading this o ...more

Great debut novel from Skye Turner. I received an ARC for an honest review. Great storyline with super character development and steamy, steamy scenes. I read it in under a day! I may have lost some hours of sleep over it :)
A Tasty Read Book Reviews
I have found recently that some of the Rock Star Romances just haven't been up my alley, some of the guys are hot...but can't keep me hanging on, and some of the heroines... meh, could do without them...but I have to say I have found a Series that I KNOW I am going to enjoy cause the author knows her Sexy Rock Gods and she writes heroines who know when it's time to melt at the feet of these sexy dudes...and the Bayou Stix boys are HOT!!

This Second Chance Romance will have your emotions all over
2.5 Stars

Alluring Turmoil wasn’t a horrible book, it just didn’t do much for me personally. It’s nothing I will remember in a few weeks.

The story is about the lead singer in a band, Jude and his old flame Lexi. They were together 8 years ago before Jude’s band made it big time, but they broke up for reasons that are kept a big secret until the book is over. (However, I guessed the secret and wasn’t shocked in the least bit.) Both Jude and Lexi feel the other one hurt them so many years back but

I had high hopes for this book just from reading the sample. Unfortunately I lost interest shortly after I purchased the book. My biggest issue with this book, is the hero. He was kind of a pussy. Sorry, but it's true. The gay friend was manlier than him. I mean this guy is a rock star but he acts worse than a girl. When ever the book switched to his point of view you couldn't really tell it was a mans point of view. You could tell it was a woman writing the book. It felt like his thoughts and t ...more

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 w

**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 co
I LOVED this book. I was so intrigued and drawn in with just the first chapter. I am one who needs to be drawn in quickly or I will get bored. Once you start you can't stop. You can't help but love Lexi just like Jude does. Who doesn't love an independent woman? I know I do. Her best friends CRACK me up with their lines. I would love to have best friends just like them. Finally...Jude! How swoon-worthy is he? A tattooed famous rock star...yes please! This book has it, passion, sex, co ...more

I love it!

Skye your the greatest. What an awesome book and I can't wait for the next one. Its so hard to write a review and not give away to much about the book. So to anyone who is interested in this book, believe me you will not be disappointed. And if you like steamy sex, you'll love it.

3.5 stars

Three friends inseperable as kids...Lexi, Jude, and Eric. Eventually Lexi and Jude became a couple, but it ended badly with heart break and no closure. Eric and Lexi remained friends and Jude went off to follow his dream of being in a band.

Eight years later, Lexi and Eric run a successful bakery, are room mates and best friends. He is the only one who knows about her past with Jude. When Jude comes home to Baton Rouge, he is now a hugely popular rock star who can have any woman he want

***Gladys #XOXOtheNerdGirl Official's Review***

Old Wounds, First Loves and Pains that Linger far too long for you to want to bring back out of the box you stuffed it in; This is what hooked me into Alluring Turmoil. Not to mention her reference to BoonesFarm! Come on! You know we drank that cheap wine when we were young before we went out. Oh am I just showing a little tooooooo much of my racy past! Teeee heeeee...

Language CHECK - I am giving the author a swear jar when she writes her next book

Without you I exist... with you... I live
I have a confession to make, when reading a synopsis, if the words Rockstar, band, or lead singer appear at any time I quit reading and start clicking. However, that doesn't always mean I end up with a good story, it just means I'm willing to give it a chance. Alluring Turmoil was my first Skye Turner book, but it definitely won't be my last. I'm anxiously awaiting the next book in the series. Each book revolves around another character, but they are not
This book is basically a second chances story. Our main characters, Jude and Lexi were high school/childhood sweethearts. However, their romance didn't make very far past high school, and they spend 8 years apart, that we are told is full of misery and longing.
The author doesn't divulge just what the cause of the break-up was until the very end of the novel, so it was all a tad angsty and suspenseful waiting for that ball to drop. However, it was also a bit annoying because sort of sucks to b

What first drew me to want to read Alluring Turmoil is that it is in Louisiana, which is where I live. Then I read the whole synopsis for it and man that was it, I bought the book and read it and swooned over Jude Delecroix!! Lexi and Jude have a past together. He left town to be a rocker and she opened up a bakery. One day she looks up at the door of her shop and there he stood. He is back in town and wants her back. The story of their past and how they come back together was just so good. The ...more

3.5 Stars Good debut book

It's written in dual point of view, which I love. It is one of my favorite components in a novel.

I really liked the main character, Lexi. She had a fun loving personality and guts. Her relationship with her best friends Bradi and Erik were great. They were strong secondary characters and really added to the story. Jude is a hot leading man. He is your typical arrogant rock star, bedding a bunch of women, but there is only one woman that he has truly ever wanted, and it
So let me just start this review out by saying….HOLY SEXY ROCK GOD! LOL I had the opportunity to beta read this book for Skye and I am SO happy I did. She did NOT disappoint!! From the very beginning she grabbed my attention and kept it.

Alluring Turmoil is (from what I have been told) a 5 book series revolving around the Bayou Stix Band. The first book focuses on the lead singer Jude Delecroix and Lexi Sloane, the love of his life. They have a past; a hurtful past that Lexi hasn’t even revealed
Great debut novel. 3.5 stars. Nice story and HEA. The story is about Lex & Jude who grew up together, fell in love then broke up and never got over each other. The book is about second chances and the key ingredients to the story are love, miscommunication and of course sex. The book begins with Jude coming back to Baton Rouge with his band and going to see Lex at her bakery to prove to himself that he is over her when he obviously is not.

The story is written from both POVs which was really
