Disclaimer from Bradi St. James
Alluring Ties is NOT a full length novel, but is a companion novella to the Bayou Stix series.
It is recommended to be read in this order:
Alluring Turmoil, Book 1 Bayou Stix
Alluring Seduction, Book 2 Bayou Stix
Alluring Ties, Book 2.5 Bayou Stix
There are some situations which are not for everyone included in this novella: cheating, male/male romance and sex, and like all of Skye’s books, explicit language and hot ass sex. If you can’t handle it, don’t read it. It’s that simple. But if you want to know more about myself and Erik, then turn the page and get started!
Alluring Ties is a companion novella to the Bayou Stix series. It’s Book 2.5 Bayou Stix. In Alluring Turmoil, we were introduced to Lexi Sloane’s two best friends, Bradi and Erik. Alluring Ties will take you on a journey into their pasts and bring you to their present.
Bradi St. James is a force to be reckoned with. She’s strong, independent, and has something to prove. All of her life, she’s watched the world around her and is determined to have a different fate from what she’s grown up with. The path you’ve always believed to be the right path, may not be your destiny after all.
Erik Jenson is a kind man. A nurturer and the kind of friend everyone wants to have. Growing up surrounded by friends and family who support him, he’s a confident man. The choices he must make and the chances he must take as he lives and grows make him the strong, loving man he becomes.
Alluring Ties contains explicit sex, including some male/male, strong language and is not intended for anyone under the age of 18 or anyone who does not like M/M romance.
There are times when I get really annoyed when I hear that an author is writing a book to focus on the secondary characters from their series. With that being said, it was quite refreshing to read Alluring Ties by Skye Turner which is a companion novella to her popular Bayou Stix series. Alluring Ties focuses on Bradi and Erik who are best friends to one of the main characters from Alluring Turmoil which is book one in the series.
I had already loved Bradi and Erik from the previous books but Alluring Ties gives greater insight to their personalities and their journey to present day. I was quite amazed by how Turner could pack so much emotion, so many struggles, and of course, sex into a novella. The main takeaway I found from this book was the internal strife one goes through when trying to come to terms with their sexuality.
I love Skye and the Bayou Stix series and Alluring Ties is a great addition. Ohhhhhh, and I forgot to mention Micah!!! He is Bradi’s boyfriend and while I know that he isn’t a member of the Bayou Stix band after reading Alluring Ties, I am convinced that he deserves his own book!!! The Bayou Stix series is one that shouldn’t be missed and now I am anxiously awaiting the next book…Paging Liam!!!
DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of Alluring Ties in exchange for an honest review.
Skye Turner is an avid reader and an editor turned writer.
She attended Southeastern Louisiana University and Louisiana State University where she majored in Mass Communications, centering her studies in Journalism. Unfortunately life intervened and she made the choice to leave her studies.
She lives in small town Louisiana with her husband, 2 children, and 4 fur babies.
When she’s not chained to her laptop pounding out sexy stories she can usually be found playing Supermom, reading, gardening (playing in the dirt), listening to music and dancing like a fool, or catching up on her family oriented blog.
