Ok, so I know I’ve already posted two blogs just today, but I just saw my FIRST review of Alluring Turmoil. .. and it’s FREAKING FIVE STARS!!!!!!!
Five stars from someone who does not know me. We are not friends. She has never met me. All she did was read my book as a Beta Reader.
I asked for honest reviews, even if they thought I sucked. However, she tells me I do NOT suck as a writer!
I’m so excited, I’m rambling like a fool. I am shaking and I just cried.
I… Don’t… Cry. (Not often, and not over things like this.)
But this is my first book. My baby… I’ve had this story in my head for a few years, and finally Jude and Lexi demanded they be let out.
I listened and Alluring Turmoil is the byproduct!
Maybe I sound like a crackhead right now, but ask me if I care?!?!
I just got my very first review and it’s FIVE… Count them… FIVE STARS!
Thank you Roni over at Book Fanatic for taking the time to read my book and thank you for loving it!
I love my characters so much, so hearing that someone else fell in love with them too… Ah.
That’s what we all dream of!
Here’s the review (posted on Goodreads):
“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 when it could have been so easily avoided. Jude has so much passion and so much love for Lexi. It really pulls at your heart when you see the depth of his love for her. Here is an excerpt of a letter he wrote to her before he left on one of his tours:
I woke up this morning with you in my arms and thought to myself, I want to do this for the rest of my life. You in my arms is perfection. It’s cosmic. It’s simply the way we are supposed to be.
I couldn’t wake you. You were sleeping so soundly.
I know that you and I are moving fast. It’s exhilarating. When I’m with you Lex, it’s like we were never apart.
A lot has happened between then and now, but the now is what I want us to concentrate on. Now it’s you and me. You are what’s important. We are the only thing that matters to me anymore.
What happened back then is irrelevant. I want you. I want you always.
You are what I see when I look into the future. 5 years from now, 10 years from now, hell 50 years from now, you are there.
As a teenager and young man, I loved you. You were my everything. But I didn’t really understand what that meant. Now, as a man, I love you even more.
You are the reason I smile, Lex. You are the first thing I want to see when I wake up and the last thing I want to see before falling asleep. I want to see you smile every day and I want to know that I’m the reason you’re smiling.
These next few weeks are going to be hard for me. I’ve gotten so used to you, to sleeping with you, to talking with you, to kissing you, to just being with you, that’s it kind of hard for me to imagine me functioning without you.
Know that I may not be next to you, but that you are with me. Always. In my head and in my heart. You’re a part of me again. The most important part of me. Lex, you own me. You own my heart.
I left the keys for my house and my car with you. I want you to use them and I want you to give serious consideration to moving in with me when I get back.
We’re adults. I know what I want and what I want is you. It’s always been you.
I see no need to beat around the bush.
I want you. In my life, in my arms, in my bed. Every night.
Think about it…
You own my heart. You own everything I am.
I love you Lex.
Seriously??????? I started crying when I read that. Now you see why I think he compares to Kellan. Man Lexi is one lucky woman!!!
Lexi is successful in her career and has a great business going for her. However, she is very insecure and has so much doubt in Jude. This insecurity and doubt destroyed them for 8 years. Lexi is not as wishy washy as Kiera but she definitely could use some faith and belief in their love.
As far as the other characters in the book, I completely loved her best friends Erik and Bradi. Erik is a sweetheart and takes such good care of Lexi. He’s like the big brother every girl wishes they had. (I’m the oldest so of course I wanted a big brother, and plus we are all girls ) Oh and of course I can’t forget about Bradi!! She’s the best friend that is fiercely protective of Lexi and has no problem speaking her mind. I love her….lol
You will not be disappointed with this book. I look forward to more books by Skye Turner. Mark my words……and prepare yourself for an AWESOME book and love story.”
That ladies and gentlemen is my very first review as an author.
Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would get something like this.
I am so excited to share my stories with you all and I pray that everyone who reads my books falls as in love with my characters as I have!
