Eileen's Thoughts

Bayou Dreaming by Lexi Blake, book three in her Butterfly Bayou series is a wonderful, emotional, and enjoyable story.

Roxanne King left New York City and its police force for a simpler life but being a deputy in a small, sleepy Louisiana parish was definitely a bit of an adjustment. She believes she’s settled in, but hasn’t really made friends or become part of the community. She has one foot out the door, hoping to join the force in a larger city. She knows she made mistakes since her arrival in town, the biggest, and possibly worst being Zep Guidry; especially as they spent a hot night together a year ago.

Roxie believes that Zep drifts through life on his good looks and Cajun charm; not the man for her. Zep knows what he wants, and he wants Roxie; he just isn’t sure how to get her. He’s not used to a woman he can’t charm and Roxie acts as if she’s immune. It seems like the only time he spends any time with her is when she’s arresting him. Zep is determined to win her over by any means necessary; even if he has to become the kind of man she desires. When Roxie’s parents surprise her with a visit Zep takes advantage of the chance to show her that the town bad boy just might be the man of her dreams.

Spending quality time together and burning up the sheets, these two have off the charts electricity and chemistry. Following his heart, Zep is determined to prove to Roxie that there is more to him than he lets on.  With the help of some crazy, loving, meddling, locals, Zep just might be able to convince Roxie he’s the perfect man for her.


Ms. Blake wrote an emotional and wonderful story that should definitely not be missed. She provided a tale that sizzled with magnetism, scorch the sheets chemistry, witty banter, and memorable characters keeping me flipping the pages of this intense and emotional romance.  I totally enjoyed and highly recommend Bayou Dreaming to other readers.
