Blog Tour for Sweet Home Louisiana by Erin Nicholas

SweetHomeLousiana300.jpg


Synopsis


Thanks to a drawn-up-while-drinking-moonshine partnership agreement, Madison Allain has to spend thirty days back on the bayou before she can sell her part of the family business.
And if the heat and humidity and freaking alligators of Louisiana aren’t enough to agitate the cool and in-control California girl, then Owen Landry, the equally hot guy who stole her heart twelve years ago, will sure do the trick.

Owen just has to remember three simple-ish rules: Do not fight with her. Do not fight *over* her. Do *not* kiss her. He can do this. He’s charming and friendly for a living after all. But this is Maddie. The only woman to ever shake up this laid-back bayou boy.

Besides, she’s not staying. No way. These people and this town make her crazy. She doesn’t want to be crazy. She definitely does *not* want to own a swamp boat tour company. She just wants to paint. In her quiet, beautiful, alligators-not-allowed, *air-conditioned* art studio.

As for that hot bayou boy? Well, he’s…amazing. But he belongs here in the South. And she definitely doesn’t. Even if her heart stays behind when she leaves.

Excerpt



Owen felt his mouth curve into a grin as he heard the familiar clap, clap, clap behind him.
That was one of his favorite sounds—high heels on the wooden dock of the Boys of the Bayou swamp boat tour company.

He took his time turning and once he did, he started at the shoes.
They were black and showed off bright red toenails. The straps wrapped sexily around trim ankles and led the eye right up to smooth, toned calves. The heels matched the black polka dots on the white skirt that thankfully didn’t start until mid-thigh, and showed off more tanned skin.
He straightened from his kneeling position in one of the boats as his eyes kept moving up past the skirt to the bright red belt that accentuated a narrow waist and then to the silky black tank that molded to a pair of perfect breasts.

He was fully anticipating her lips being bright red to go with that belt and her toenail polish. God, he loved red lipstick. And high heels. In any color.

But before he could get to those lips, she used them, to say, “Oh, dammit, it’s you.”
Owen’s gaze bypassed her mouth to fly to her eyes. Because he’d know that voice anywhere.
Madison Allain was home.

A day early.

Not that an extra day would have helped him prepare. He’d been thinking about her visit for a week and was still as wound tight about it as he’d been when Sawyer, his business partner and cousin, had told him that she was coming home. For a month.

Owen stood just watching her, fighting back all of the first words that he was tempted to say.
Like, “Damn, you’re even more gorgeous than the last time I saw you.”
Or, “I haven’t put anyone in the hospital lately.”
Or, “I’ve missed you so fucking much.”

Just for instance.
She blew out a breath and now he did focus on her lips.
Yep, red. Terrific. That wasn’t going to make ignoring them any easier.
“I was hoping you were Sawyer,” she said, propping a hand on her hip.
Owen tossed the wrench he held into the toolbox at his feet. “Nope. Sorry.” So she wasn’t happy to see him. Big shocker. He hadn’t always been the perfect Southern gentleman around Maddie, that was for sure.

He wiped his hands on his jeans. Okay, he was supposed to be nice to her. That meant treating her like she was one of the tourists who frequented this dock. Polite. Friendly, but not I’ve-known-you-my-whole-life-and-kissed-you-a-whole-bunch friendly. Just mildly hey-how’s-it-goin’ friendly. So that she didn’t sell off her portion of the business that not only fed him and his other two partners, but that was their pride and joy. And the only thing he was really good at.

Nice. Polite. A little friendly—but not too much. He could do that.

Annoyed that within thirty seconds of seeing her again he was already thinking about kissing her, he kicked the toolbox, trying to slide it into the nook under the bow of the boat. Of course, he kicked it too hard and it tipped, spilling tools over the floor of the boat with loud clangs of metal against metal.
He shoved a hand through his hair. That was typical. Everything was an overreaction when it came to how he acted around Maddie. Even the little stuff. Certainly the big stuff. Always had been.
“Sawyer’s over at Ellie’s.” Owen pulled himself up out of the boat and onto the dock.

That took him about two feet closer to her and he instantly became aware that he wasn’t wearing a shirt. Very aware as Maddie’s eyes tracked over his shoulders, chest and abs.

The heat that arrowed through him was unwelcome. Though not unexpected. There had always been this crazy chemistry between them. Key word: crazy.





Reviews



Review by Barbara


Crazy Fun. The Boy’s of the Bayou just keep it rolling from book to book. The author has given us another RomCom that is not only hilarious but very heartfelt and so very much a cajun style romance. In case you don’t know it, cajun people are 100 percent family. Everyone knows everyone’s business and everyone has a opinion on everything. But when push comes to shove, no one sticks together more for each other than cajun bayou folks. (FYI, I know this as I lived much of my adult life in Louisiana). The author has done an Outstanding job of portraying cajun life on the bayou - the fun, the work and the family life style. 

Madison has returned to the Bayou to fulfill the 30 days require in order to sell her portion of the family business. Madison have been living in California and has no desire to return to life on the Bayou, which is exactly what the boys who own the other shares of the business are trying to get her to do. The family is hoping after 30 days she’ll return to her roots and not sell. But Madison has other plans. She has to sell because 1) she loves her life in California where she gets to paint and work in a plush art gallery and 2) because she can’t live near her old flame Owen. Why? Because he drives her crazy and every time they are together things seem to go wrong and crazy stuff happens. As for Owen he wants her to stay but he knows her happiness is in California and no longer on the Bayou and he’ll do anything to make her happy, even if it means she sells to an outsider. 

This is a very funny book that will have you laughing at the family’s antics and hoping for a happy ending for Owen and Madison. I Highly Recommend the Boys of the Bayou series. While they can be read as standalones, the characters in the books crossover and it’s much more entertaining if you read them in order. 

2 Thumbs Up and 5 Stars for a great book 2 and this reader is anxiously waiting for book 3.  



Review by Kathy


I could hardly wait for this book to come out and let's just say...Cher..mais I was not disappointed! True dat! This book was so much fun. Nothing like some good ole cajuns to get the pot boiling and throw everything in that they can to get things cooking. This story is funny, heartfelt and so true to form when it comes to cajuns and their lifestyle on the bayou! The things that this family does will have you holding your sides from laughing. Owen and Madison's story comes with a past, but in this book you cross your fingers and toes, for the outcome of their story as well as crossing your legs to keep from wetting yourself from laughing so much. I can hardly wait for the next book in this series!!!

I Highly Recommend the Boys of the Bayou series. They are standalones but the characters in the books crossover and it’s much more entertaining if you read them in order.






Start the series of standalones with 
My Best Friend’s Mardi Gras Wedding
