You know how we are taught that two wrongs don't make a right? Well, Syke couldn't have given us more of a paradox here in Alluring Infatuation! Oh man, ok so far Alluring Seduction has been my favorite book of the Bayou Stix series, until now. Now I can't pick one, which is not a bad thing because I order all of these books in paperback as well, lol!

Dade Rodrigue is your go to rock in the crazy, often chaotic world of the Bayou Stix family. He's the adviser, the guy everyone looks up to, the on

You will remember that we first met Dr Melonie Bird during Alluring Temptation, and found out that Melonie and Dade knew each other right at the end of that book - and wow, wasn't that explosive!!

This Fourth book in the Bayou Stix series gives us the story of Dade and Melonie. Dade is the level-headed one of the band. He is the one everyone else looks up to and goes to for advice. It is his turn to have his story told and find his HEA...will this be it?

Melonie and Dade meet on vacation, but aren’t quite honest with each other regarding who they really are. Sparks fly from the moment they each notice the other and that vacation turns into something unexpected for both, even though he is n

This is Dade and Melonie's book.
Book #4 in the Bayou Stix Series.
I say yes that you can read this as a stand alone, but why would you want to, this is an amazing series that needs to be read from book one to get everything out of it!

Skye has done it once again. Each book in this series I say this i my favorite. BUT I will honestly say that she out did herself with Dade. He is such a magnificent man. He is caring and understanding. He watches out for everyone else and puts them before he wo

OMD = Oh. My. Dade!!

This is book 4 in the Bayou Stix series and is Dade and Melonie's story.

We got a little preview into these two characters’s situation in the last book in the series and I was anxiously waiting to read their story. Skye does not disappoint. We get all of Skye's goodness, hot steamy scenes, romance, comedy, AND a “Hummer scene”, you’ll know when you get there, holy hell, that was crazy good.

Dade goes on vacation for a much needed break from the stress that entails being part

There are times when a long, drawn out review should be written and others when I prefer to get straight to the point and leave it short and simple. And, this is one of those times when a long review isn't needed. Alluring Infatuation is the BEST book written by Skye Turner to date!!!

Melonie and Dade, oh my!! What a love story they have. We meet the two of them while they are on vacation and of course, she has no idea that he is a mega star. Everything seems to be going well, until one of them h

Dade and Melonie are by far my Favorite couple of the Bayou Stix Pairings!
Melonie, a doctor, just out of a 7-year long relationship, just wants to have some fun! And who better to have fun with than the sexy Tattooed stranger she meets while on vacation.
Dade, the drummer for Bayou Stix, Just needs a break from the fighting going on between Liam and Clove, so he goes on vacation. What happens there will have you reaching for a fan, a cool drink, and possibly a change of panties.

Skye Turner has done it again. This book was Amazing. Each book she writes gets HOTTER & HOTTER. This is book 4 of The Bayou Stix Series. Dade and Melonie both decided they need a break from their very busy lives, with Dade being the bass guitarist for Bayou Stix and Melonie being a very successful OB/GYN. So they both go to a tropical island. From the moment their eyes meet, they can't take their eyes off one another. Dade is so not Melonie's type but, the spark between them are just too strong ...more

This book blew me away.... Skye did it again with another amazing book to this awesome series!

Let me start off by giving you a warning. DO NOT READ IN PUBLIC! It will lead to panties melting off and have you blushing like crazy!

Dade and Melonie's story is HOT HOT HOT!

Dade is amazing and probably one of my favorite Bayou Stix boys yet! Sorry Jessie! Dade is the bassist for Bayou Stix and decided it was time for some R&R, well

Another great one from Skye. The play between the characters was enough to keep you invested but not too over the top to make you roll your eyes. Of course there was the obligatory misunderstanding/blow up but it fit well with the emotions. It was just right. I love my HEAs but I know their story isn't finished.

Dade and the Doc. They are so perfect for each other. If they can just use the brains they both have they will be great. I loved how easily this story flowed and how love grew and they worked through it all.

Skye Turner’s Bayou Stix series is one sexy set of rocker books, and her newest release, Alluring Infatuation, definitely brings the steam that readers have come to expect. Dade and Melonie’s story explores the magnetic connection between them that started on an island vacation and then picks up once they realize that the person they thought they’d never see again was much closer than they would have ever realized.

Dade’s always been the one to take care of everyone else in the band as well as hi

You know that scene at the end of book 3 , yup the hallway , Dade , Rayne....ya right there you know that Dade's book is going to be super hot and you just have to know how they know each other and what their story is !!

Dade has always been the rock , the level headed go to guy for advice and really anything for the whole band and family. He has taken care of his bandmates and baby sister for years always neglecting himself. So on vacation alone he indulges in himself and the hot blonde he sees

Since i have read the novels proceeding this one I looked forward to it. This is one author that knows how to write and must say with each novel gets more intriguing for me the reader wondering can it get any better? Her style is her own and she takes each couple featured and turns them into a combustional read. As each couple gets their own she also builds more onto what is happening with the others like it was only yesterday. I myself like that in a series. I think this one is going to be my f ...more

Finally! After the introduction to Dade and Melonie in the last book of this series, I totally wanted to know Dade's story because the man is just yummy! And let me tell you ladies, it did not disappoint!

Skye Turner, you've done it again! Each book in this series is just as good as the one before it! The best part of this series for me is that there is NO cheating and NO cliff-hangers! Each book tells the story of one of the band members, while continuing with the previous characters. My favorite kind of series, and the only kind I will read.

I really identify with Ms. Turner's writing style. It's real, it's's life. As you're reading, you feel like you are right there on the sidel

Fun Schmexy, Romantic, HOT, Funny, Sad.... Spectacular!!
Those are the words that come to my mind when I think about Dade and Melonie. Both on vacation looking for rest relaxation and nothing but fun, but what they find is something far better than what they bargained for. An emergency and no communication separates them, then comes the anger and bitterness.
Imagine a reunion based where you are stressed out over your sister only to find that the person you were looking for is their helping her

Dade Rodrigue is really tired right now. Tired of his roommates constant fighting, tired of taking care of everyone, tired of being just a conquest in another groupie's mind. He desperately needs a break and that's what the levelheaded, bass guitarist for Bayou Stix is going to get. Dr. Melonie Bird, OB/GYN extraordinaire likes her ducks in a row. Or so she thought. Just days before her wedding, a sincere heart to heart with her fiancé reveled that neither was ready to say I do. They loved each ...more

Good gravy I LOVE this series. I do believe Dade is my new favorite Bayou Stix man...

Dade is the "together" one of the group. The big brother, the thinker, the fixer, the one in control. He is the go to guy that takes care of everyone, including his baby sister Clove. He is the protector. He is fierce. He will take your back and when needed lead the way. But he is tired and needs a break... so off on vacation he goes... little did he know how his life would change.

Alluring Infatuation was a great installment to the Bayou Stix series. The electric spark between Dade and Melonie when they first laid eyes on each other did nothing but grow and the sizzling chemistry between them flowed through the pages. Unfortunately, while the sex scenes were hot, the romance was not. It really felt like Dade treated Melonie like a sex buddy and she was okay with it. The fact that he was able to take a trip and not speak to her
