Review Rating:



Take a leisurely stroll down south where alligators sun themselves in the middle of the road and the bayou is your backyard. This is a new series by Lexi Blake, a favorite author of mine, that contains all of her same wit and sass, but is set to a lower heat setting than some of her other series.

Lila and Armie sizzle with chemistry from the getgo. Their back and forth is super entertaining and in the small town these two couldn’t be better matched for one another.

Lila moves down south needing a fresh start and it makes sense to also be closer to her sister. She didn’t count on the sinfully sexy sheriff pulling her over  the moment she enters town and issuing her a ticket. Welcome to her new home.

Armie doesn’t like to break rules and he almost considers it when he realizes it’s Lila going thirty miles over the speed limit, but rules are rules and she is sassy. He really likes sassy.

With the charm of the bayou through the eyes of Lila, an outsider, Butterfly Bayou was really delightful to read. Add in the townsfolk, who are colorful and make the book LOL fun, there is so much promise for where this series can go in the future, not to mention where Lexi could fit in some interconnection stories with her other series.


New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake is back with an all-new heartwarming, small-town contemporary romance series set against the spicy southern backdrop of Louisiana’s Butterfly Bayou.

Life in Dallas took a tragic turn for nurse practitioner Lila Daley. In need of a fresh start, she retreats to Papillon, Louisiana, a tiny town on the bayou. Sure she’s greeted by a gator, finds herself in the middle of golf cart wars, and unwittingly adopts a scruffy dog, but Lila remains undaunted. She’s focused on running the town’s medical clinic, but fitting into the quirky community is harder than she imagined.

As a single dad, Sheriff Armie LaVigne embraces routine. But there is nothing routine about the town’s newest resident. Lila is a gorgeous fish out of water and he’s ready to catch her. In fact, in no time at all, Armie knows Lila is the woman for him and he plans to win her heart. But when the past threatens their happiness, Armie will have to decide if he has the courage to trust Lila enough to find a true happily ever after.
