  • Heavier Read than expected

    Going into this story I was expecting a small town romance, which I did get, but I usually associate them with a lighter romance and this was WAY heavier than I expected. Maybe my perception of small town romances is wrong but I can only go on what I have read in the past and this one was very different. Lila is a nurse practitioner in Dallas Texas and after a HORRIBLE event takes place she moves to the small town of Papillon Louisiana to be closer to her sister and take over the medical practice in town. I think the only funny part of the story is the way the people in town initially treated her, the city slicker, and honestly it wasn't that funny. Armie is the town's sheriff and a single father to a sixteen year old daughter who is in a wheelchair. I really liked his daughter, even tough there were a couple of times where I didn't agree with what she was doing. Armie and Lila were interesting together, they definitely had the chemistry but they each had so much baggage I think it was hard for them to really connect as a couple for a while. While I liked this story, I didn't love it and that is because of the mind frame I had going in. When you expect something light and you're hit with a heavy subject that doesn't just go away after the first couple of chapters I like to be prepared for it. I think I would have probably rated this book higher if I had gone in knowing that it was based around a subject that is a trigger warning for some. I don't normally put spoilers in my reviews and I really don't consider this a spoiler since it happens in the first chapter but be warned. If you have been in a domestic abuse relationship this book might hit some triggers for you, it did for me and I wasn't prepared so I am putting it out there so you are prepared. I loved the secondary characters and I added all of the books to my TBR shelf that are listed already. I cannot wait for Roxie and Zep's book! Happy Reading!!! **I have voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Readers Copy of this book for my Blog, Nadine's Obsessed with Books**

  • A Beautiful and Loving Story

    WOW!! LOVED!! Butterfly Bayou by Lexi Blake, book one in Butterfly Bayou series is an amazing story that I just could not put down. After being involved in a tragic, deadly, hostage situation nurse practitioner Lila Daley was desperately in need of a fresh start. Deciding to leave Dallas, she relocates in Papillon, Louisiana, a little town on the bayou, to be closer to her sister and run the town’s medical clinic. She doesn’t find the nice, calm she expected. Lila is greeted by a gator that roams the town, adopts a scruffy dog that used to live in the house she bought, and finds herself in the middle of golf cart wars. No matter what, Lila is still an outsider and finds it more difficult to fit into this quirky community than she imagined. Single dad Sheriff Armie LaVigne thrives on routine in order to make it through each day. There is nothing routine about the new resident and town “doc”, Lila. Lila checks all of Armie’s boxes and he’s ready to help her adapt to the town. In no time he knows Lila is the one for him and he sets out to make her his. When the past threatens their happiness, Armie will need to decide if he has the courage to trust Lila enough for them to have a true happily ever after. I loved the way the town came around after seeing Lila in action, saving three town people involved in an accident. She gained the trust of these people as well as more clients. Armie and Lila were the perfect match, fitting together like puzzle pieces; yin to yang. Armie holds on tight to his daughter, Nicole, who is in a wheel chair after a car accident; killing her mother. Nicole needed normal instead of protectiveness. Lila getting along with and loving Nicole was icing on the cake for this couple; until it wasn’t. Lila is a survivor; especially after all she had been through. It is because of her diligence growing up that she and her siblings became the strong, successful people they are today. The secondary characters were such fun and a welcome addition to this story, especially Lila’s sister’s in-laws. Ms. Blake wrote an emotional, sexy, and amazing story, with a touch of humor that should definitely not be missed. She provided a tale that sizzled with magnetism, scorch the sheets chemistry, witty banter, and endearing characters kept me flipping the pages of this intense and emotional romance. I totally enjoyed and highly recommend Butterfly Bayou to other readers and look forward to reading the next book in the series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

  • Captivating small-town romance full of hope, heart

    Lila is tough, she has fought her way out of poverty while raising her siblings but a traumatic event has pushed her to change the path her life is on. Moving to Papillon to take over the local clinic is culture shock. In her quest to find success, she closed herself off from emotion but moving to a small town where everyone finds their way into everyone’s business, has her questioning all her decisions. Meeting the local sheriff, Armie, is frustrating and exhilarating all at the same time. He becomes someone she can lean on as she navigates the locals to win them over and trust her as their medical professional. Armie’s world flipped when his daughter is in an accident that leaves her in a wheel chair. He had traded in big city law enforcement for the slower pace of his hometown. Now his goal is to make sure Noelle has a great life. Meeting Lila opens him up in a way he never expected. Each of them has their own ghosts and demons to face but will they be willing to open themselves up to love and possible heartache. I fell in love with Papillon and all it’s crazy, wonderful characters. The journey that Lila and Armie each face provided hope and inspiration along the way.

  • Small Town Perfection!

    Lisa and Armie definitely had a strong attraction, and they even had strong feelings, but having their own minds figured out wasn’t always in sync. Sometimes, everything can be perfect, but some things are out of alignment. It took a bit, and a few false starts, to get these two to their HEA! Along the way, this small-town romance gave us a wonderful cast of characters and a great setting. When a story starts with our heroine accusing our hero of colluding with a reptile (gator Otis) to set speed traps, and after their first night together, our hero decides to make up a law (misdemeanor) to make it illegal to knock before 8 am, you know you’re getting some comedy. We also got a whole lot of heart, from our characters, from the town. Serious issue are the underlying motivators for both our characters, and family and love are always front and center. Fitting in and doing what is right, what feels right, isn’t always easy, but Lila figures it out. Knowing what is right and acting on your instincts isn’t always the best path, and Armie figures that out. Add in an abandoned dog and a teenage daughter, and a boatload of soul searching, and the journey was definitely worth the path that needed to be taken

  • Enjoyable

    4 Star Review of Butterfly Bayou (Butterfly Bayou#1) by Lexi Blake   Lexi Blake is off to a good start with her latest series based in Papillon, Louisiana also known as Butterfly Bayou. Her writing was descriptive and I could easily imagine myself in the Bayou particularly since it is an area that I would love to visit. I had a hard time warming to nurse practitioner Lila Daley initially. I know she had just been through a traumatic event which had almost cost her everything, but it wasn’t just that. She appeared standoffish and judgmental and I couldn’t picture her living successfully in the little town on the bayou. Single dad and Sheriff Armie LaVigne was easier to relate too. Fitting into the quirky community without ruffling feathers is going to be difficult, but her sister Lisa is there to lend a hand and if only she would let him, so would Armie and his adorable and sassy daughter Noelle. There were times that my heart just about broke for all that Lila, Armie and Noelle have been through .The relationship between Armie and Noelle was heartwarming and I loved their interaction and obvious love for one another. I found myself frustrated by both Lila and Armie’s behaviour on numerous occasion and wanted to yell at them both. However although it was a very rocky road, I was cheering when they finally got the happily ever after that they both deserved. Of course the appearance of Otis the alligator led to some humorous moments throughout the story, the quirkiness of Papillon and the people who call it home added to my overall enjoyment of Butterfly Bayou and I can’t wait to learn more about Zep Guidry in particular. Although this is not my most favourite book from Lexi Blake, it has certainly whetted my appetite for what’s to come on the bayou and I am excited to read the next book in the series .
