When I say this story is hot....it's Bayou in summer hot. Josh meets Tori at the bar he works at on Mardi Gras and there is an immediate connection.

Well of course Tor ...more

I'm so excited that Tori and Josh are almost here! I can't even tell you how much I love this little town in Louisiana and this crazy-but-loving family!

I feel like I've known and loved these people forever! And now it's finally here!

A sexy playboy New Orleans bartender who waits a year (a year!) for the love of his life. A gorgeous (slightly awkward) vet who collects random pets. A fake relationship that never really felt that fake. Yup, I loved every single thing about this book.
Josh and Tori have so much chemistry but it was Josh's total acceptance of Tori's...quirkiness that stole my heart. I know I will be rereading this one soon and can't wait for more from the Landry family.

So he comes up with an idea that next year on Mardi Gras, they have to come back and meet at the same bar if they’re both still interested.

I didn't just fall in love with Josh and Tori, I fell in love with the whole Landry family (Allian family and extended members included)!! I can already tell that I am going to LOVE this series. There is just nothing better than revisiting characters you know and love time and time again.

I really, really liked this! Josh and Tori had me smiling. They were awesome together. He was so focused on getting to know Tori, and making her happy. I loved it!
One of my favorite things about this book was the "insta-love" between Josh and Tori. I am very new to the "insta-love" bandwagon, but this is, by far, one of my favorites! I adored that she was a tourist and he was the bartender!!!! My next favorite thing was the pace of the book. ...more
This is book 1 in the Boys of the Bayou and I am dying to get my hands on the next book. Once I started reading I was hooked and could not tear my eyes away. Even when I had to stop reading for a moment, my mind was still thinking about this book and what I thought was going to happen next.
Tori and Josh had such amazing chemistry and I absolutely fell in love with both of these characters as well as Josh's entire f ...more

This is an absolute must read! Tori is a hoot! She made me laugh so much! I wanted to punch Paisley and ...more
