Alexia Sloane is the twenty-six year old owner of the highly successful Louisiana coffee shop/bakery, Java and Sweeties. The past couple of years have been all she’s dreamed of and her business takes all of her focus, all of her heart.
Jude Delecroix is the lead singer of one of the most famous rock bands in the country, Bayou Stix, and the man who broke Lexi’s heart.
Lexi and Jude have a past.
When Jude comes back to town eight years after leaving to fulfill his lifelong dream of being a famous musician and comes face to face with Lexi, forces collide, old hurts are brought to the surface, and life as these two have been living it will never be the same.
There are two sides to every story, and what happens when the things you believed to be concrete suddenly crumble like ash and fade away?
What happens when two people afraid to face the past, become involved in the present? Can they hope for a future?
Welcome to Louisiana where humidity and passion are high and things are not always what they seem.

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.
This book starts with Lexi’s BFF going on and on about how the band, Bayou Stix, is coming to their hometown. Lexi is all, “Ugh, whatevs.” (I am paraphrasing here.) Then she sees Jude and everything changes.
For me, this book has a few things going for it before I even opened it up.
- It has an inked guy on the cover.
- It is about a rocker.
- The rocker is from Louisiana. (My hub is from there. I know for a fact at least one good guy comes from there!)
This was one of those books that I loved all of the secondary characters right along with everything else going on.
Lexi has two best friends: Bradi is the one obsessing over Bayou Stix and Erik is the one person that knows about her past with Jude.
Lexi and Jude’s relationship throughout this book is like a roller coaster. And oh, what a ride!
