Short history/bio on each of the main characters:
Jude Delecroix- The lead singer of the rock band Bayou Stix. He’s 27 and has lived the life of a rock star for the past 8 years. He’s realized his life is missing something and decides to head home to Baton Rouge, Louisiana to figure it out. He’s loved one woman in his entire life, Lexi Sloane.
Lexi Sloane- The owner of the highly successful Louisiana coffeeshop/bakery Java & Sweeties. She’s 26 and is a workaholic. All she does is work and spend time with her best friends. Her heart was broken 8 years ago by Jude Delecroix. She has focused on school and work since the breakup.
Erik- He’s the childhood best friend of Lexi Sloane and Jude Delecroix. After the breakup, he’s stuck with Lexi. He’s her housemate, best friend, and protector. He’s also her partner at Java & Sweeties.
Bradi- She’s Lexi’s college roommate and best friend.
Placing the cakes on the rack to cool, I fall back against the counter as I try to catch my breath and slow my racing heart.
My fists are clenched and I’m digging my nails into my palms trying to get my equilibrium back under control. Because all I really want to do is march back out there, to the middle of my shop, and climb onto him… and let him climb inside of me.
The urge to run my hands all over his body and explore the new tattoos with my fingers and tongue are so strong that the biting of my nails into my palm is literally the only thing stopping me.
The kitchen door opens, “Lex? Is everything ok?”
My Review: 4 1/2 stars
This is a great book. The characters were great, the story well written, the twists at the end important to both main characters and a bit stunning. Jude and Lexi were obviously made for each other. They are the other half to each other, whether they admit it or not. And at first, they don't, at all. Then they jump in with both feet, not knowing or addressing what happened before and they really, really should have. To me, I think the main point of the story is communication. You can lose out on so much if you aren't honest with the people you love and who love you in return. Unfortunately, that's difficult in today's world. Because of misconceptions, they lost 8 years that they could have been together. Now is their chance to get it right. I really enjoyed reading this, I'm really looking forward to the next book in the series. Can't wait to see what happens in that one.
