ARC Review: Bayou Sweethearts by Lexi Blake

After leaving the military, Major Blanchard moved to Papillon, Louisiana, to be with his aging father, where he's taken a deputy position with the sheriff’s department. Now that he’s settling into life on the bayou, he’s trying out the dating scene. Every single woman in town seems to be pining after the handsome newcomer. But so far, nothing’s worked out, and he’s had some spectacularly bad dates. Major’s getting ready to give up on love when a new lady roars into town to film a movie and turns his world upside down.

Actress Brynn Pearson is trying to make a successful transition from child star to leading lady. Now that she’s landed her first lead in a major film, nothing can stop her. She's committed to focusing solely on her work, so romance is the last thing she needs—too bad she can’t get her mind off the dreamy deputy she keeps running into. He’s gorgeous, and something about him makes her feel safe. As Brynn’s feelings for Major deepen, she starts to wonder if maybe there’s more to life than her career.

When a family crisis throws Major’s life into a tailspin, he turns to Brynn for support, and hopes their budding relationship will shine brighter than Hollywood lights.
Another wonderful story from Lexi Blake. I've been really enjoying her Butterfly Bayou series. Bayou Sweetheart is another great brick laid down to make a strong, wonderfully written series. 

You'll just love Majoy and Bryann's story. These two are just wonderful people. 

Bryann has a busy life and she's always working. As a tv star since she was a kid she hasn't really had the time to sit around a breathe. You can't help feel bad for her about it. Life should be enjoyed and she really hasn't done that. When she shows up in Papillion she realizes that fact and thinks about changing her life. 

Poor Major is dealing with a lot on his plate. His father is ill and he has no other family to help him deal with it. He often takes on way too much and I think he does that so he doesn't stop and think. He's a great guy that all can count on for a helping hand but isn't good at taking one.

I really enjoyed these two together. Both made each other feel comfortable. I think it helped that he had no clue who she was and really didn't care. He liked her for who she was, not WHO she played on TV. Right away you can feel how much these two like each other. He helps her breathe and she makes him feel less alone. 

At times Bryann's family drove me crazy but you see just how much they care about each other by the end of the story. You also learn so much more about them and feel for them. You also see so much on how Major is dealing with his dad and I think you get an idea of why Major is the way he is. You'll love so much about this story and really enjoy them. It's the perfect addition to this series and reminded me of why I love it so much.
