This is of course my book, so I love it. Alluring Ties was by far my hardest work to write so far. I took 2 characters that everyone fell in love, but who were never supposed to have a book, and wrote 7 years in 13 chapters.
I love it and writing it took me on an emotional roller coaster.
I hope my readers love it just as much and are pleased with what I gave them.

So have you read Alluring Turmoil and Alluring Seduction yet?? If not what are you waiting for? You need to read those before this one so you know who the book is about. Alluring Ties is the story of how Lexi and Erik met Bradi. It is the story of Bradi and Micah, how they met and fell in love. It is the story of Erik's first relationship and how it impacted his life and future choices. There is so much emotion in these 2 stories, laughter, tears of sadness, tears of joy and some darn hot sex. Y ...more

I was asked to be a beta reader for this book in exchange for an honest review.

I gave this book 5 stars.
This is book 2.5 in the Bayou Stix series.
This has sexual scenes and strong language. And a M/M scene (a very HOT M/M scene) **fans self**

This is Bradi and Eric's story. Bradi and Eric are not together but this is their story as they build relationships with each other and with significant others.
Told from the past to the present.

This takes place in college, when Bradi first meets Eric

I was lucky to get an ARC of this book and boy am I glad I did!

Alluring Ties gives us the story of Bradi and Erik, those two crazy, lovable best friends that Lexi relied on and whom we met in Alluring Turmoil.

Skye was able to jam pack 7 years of their lives, as told in both of their POVs, into just 13 chapters beginning from their start in college until the present in Alluring Seduction. She did this in such an amazing way that we get to see situations that allow us to really know them and love

This book ties in with Alluring Turmoil and Alluring Seduction. WOW is all I can say about this book! It's amazing and gives so much details that you wanted to know from Brandi's and Erik's past. Brandi is a strong and independent woman that has had a rough life and trust no man because of a fear. She met Micah at college at a party and fell for him instantly. Micah is her everything. Erik is a strong caring man that is the rock and big brother for Lexi. He trusted one man with his heart and it ...more

Skye Turner has put the icing on the cake! Alluring Ties has a perfect mixture of comedy, romance, love and hot sensual scenes between consensual adults.

Skye has written a novella that brings the early years of Lexi, Eric, Bradi and Micah together. Lexi and Eric meet Bradi (Lexi's college roommate) and their meeting will bring tears to your eyes. Bradi is shocked to learn that the amazingly hot man standing in front of her is gay. Of course Lexi can't stop the tears forming in her eyes and she

Personally, I haven't read the books that came before this one. I don't feel that's a problem. As this is the story of how these friends come together, it actually works for me to start here. Receiving this as an ARC from the author makes me want the two books from before. Personally speaking, I connect most with Erik, but we have a little something in common. This book covers the history of the two characters going about seven years back and is definitely filled with emotional moments, some def ...more

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

*sigh* I love this series. Those that know me, know I am drawn to darker reads, but I have my favorite authors that deliver such good sweet reads, I have to read everything they put out. And, Skye Turner is one of those authors for me. I LOVE her Bayou Stix series!!! LOVE!! Jude has my heart...

So, on to Alluring Ties. First, If you have not read the first 2 books in the series, DO NOT read this one. This novella needs to be read in order.

Alluring Ties is a sweet, sassy, and sexy read about Lexi's two sidekicks - Bradi and Erik Skye Turner takes her readers back 7 years to shed some light on how the threesome became so close, why Erik was the guarded man he was, and how Bradi and Micah got together. The novella begins with Lexi, Erik, and Bradi's first time meeting in college and brings readers up to date where Book Two, Alluring Seduction ends. The book is told in

I LOVED Skye Turners Alluring Turmoil and Alluring Seduction so when I was given a chance to read and review Alluring Ties I squealed!

Skye Turners writing style is unique. There are few authors who I feel can write conversations well, she is one of them. The banter between the characters are real, raw and hilarious. I could totally see myself sitting there drinking with them and shooting the breeze.

This is a novella to her other two books and I HIGHLY suggest you read those along with this so y

Alluring Ties is the Companion Novella to Alluring Seduction, this is not a read alone and to understand everything that is going on you will need to read book 1 - Alluring Turmoil and book 2 Alluring Seduction.

This book takes you to the beginning! However it does not take you to Jude and Lexi's beginning. It introduces you to Bradi and Micah, even though you met them in book one. As sai

And Skye has done it again!!

When I heard Bradi and Erik were getting a book, I was so excited I did a happy dance!! I loved them since I started reading Alluring Turmoil, and was so happy that we were getting a look into their lives.

I don't know how Skye did it but she packed 7 years in a novella, and she did it wonderfully. We get to see how they all met and how their relationships started. We get to see all the things they went through that made them the people they are when we meet them on

This is my review for Alluring Ties (Bayou Stix 2.5) by Skye Turner for Eskimo Princess Book Blog.

Alluring Ties follows Lexi’s (from Bayou Stix 1, Alluring Turmoil) best friends Bradi and Erik. This book is full of emotions. You will laugh, you will cry, you will probably even scream. It is an emotional ride but it is worth it. You get to see into the relationships Bradi and Erik have over the past 8 years. We get to see how Bradi and Erik each deal with falling in love and even heartbreak. Wil

Alluring Ties is a companion novella in the Bayou Stix series. It is different in many ways from Skye Turner's other books. It should not be read as a stand alone book. It does involve male on male sex. It is not book 3 in the Bayou Stix series and should not be confused as such.

With that out of the way, let's get down to the story.

Alluring Ties is the background story of our heroine Lexi Sloane's two best friends Bradi and Erik. This story gives us insight to the friendship formed in college an

To be honest I had not read anything by this author, but in order to give an honest review I had to go back and read Alluring Ties and Alluring Seduction and am I glad that I did. This novella focuses primarily on Bradi and Erik and how the friendship of Lexi, Bradi and Erik came to be. Bradi was a character that I couldn’t help but like. She is a strong willed and has had a tough life. Underneath her tough façade lurks insecurities that keeps her from trus ...more

I really liked this novella that "ties" in two of the secondary characters from Skye Turner's previous books. We are given the background on Brandi and Erik. What I particularly liked about this novella was its quick pace. Skye jumps right in with action and dialog, allowing the reader to immediately make a connection with Brandi, Erik, and Lexi. I also liked how the author uses dialog to move the story along. The strong dialog allows the reader to feel as though they are right there in action ( ...more

Alluring Ties is a novella that tells the background stories of Bradi and Erik, Lexi’s two best friends from Alluring Turmoil (Book #1 in the Bayou Stix series). It tells the love story of Bradi and Micah and the ups and downs of their love affair. It also tells Erik’s story of the love and betrayal he endured in his life.

I loved this novella as much as the first two books. My heart broke hearing Bradi and Micah’s story and how the

This story tells of Bradi and Erik, their success and failures and frustrations over love and relationships. It is told from both their points of view, over the course of seven years.

I really enjoyed this book. It was well written and had a really good story line. I enjoyed how the characters were developed over a period of time and how you got to see the growth of each character. There were some parts that may not be for everyone, but it was a well written novella.

The only part that confused me, and I think it is because this is the first book I have read from this series, is that at the very end there were characters introduced that I hadn't heard of. It didn't take away

This series is one of my favorites! Ties does exactly that it ties everything we have learned from Turmoil and Seduction together. Bradi and Erik are really the main characters in this book. Bradi is crazy and funny but deep down she is very insecure and scared! Erik is sweet, charming, and probably the nicest guy ever!!
