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,

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

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.

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

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

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

I COULD NOT PUT THIS BOOK DOWN! I was up half the night reading it!!
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??

Skye writes like she has been writing forever! I honestly did not know what to expect from this book, yes it's a rocker book, but I don't think it's your typical rocker st

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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!

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

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.

Alexia loves her life in Baton Rouge, she’s only 26 and has a successful business with her best friend Erik. But Lexi has a past she hasn’t moved on from and that past has come home.
Jude is a worldwide rock star, women love him and men want to be him. He can have anyone he wants and he has for eight years. But no matter what he does he can’t get one face out of his head. Bayou Stix, his band is in Baton Rouge for a concert, but Jude is

I fell in love with this book. I love discovering new authors and Skye Turner is now one of my must read authors. Jude and Lexi's w story was not what I was expecting and the author keeps you hooked until the very end not knowing how their story is going to play out. Just when you think they are finally going to get their Happily Ever After bam an unexpected twist.

Jude and Lexi used to be in a couple but because of certain events they went their separate ways even though they both still loved e

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

Alluring Turmoil is aptly named because the relationship between Jude and Lexi starts out very messed up. Jude was missing from Lexi’s world for 8 years after he broke her heart. Then one day he appears in her coffee shop. Jude is the only man she’s ever loved and he broke her. Then they find each other again and the steamy romance begins. This book was great and I really

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
