Publisher Description

New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake’s heartfelt contemporary romance set in Louisiana's Butterfly Bayou
Roxanne King left the big city looking for a simpler life, but after years of proving herself on a SWAT team in New York City, being deputy in a sleepy Louisiana parish is something of an adjustment. She's settling in, but she knows she made some mistakes in the beginning--Zep Guidry being the worst of them. Zep drifts through life on his looks and Cajun charm. Roxie learned the hard way he's not for her.

Zep is a man who knows what he wants, and what he wants is Roxie. He's just not sure how to get her. They spent one hot night together a year before and now all the lovely deputy seems interested in doing to him is arresting him. He's not used to a woman he can't charm, but Roxie seems immune. He's determined to win her back by any means necessary. Including becoming the kind of man she desires.

And when Roxie's past comes calling, it might be the opportunity Zep needs to show Roxie that the town bad boy might just be the man of her dreams.

Entertaining Read

4.5 Stars for Bayou Dreaming ( Butterfly Bayou, #3) This is the third book in the Butterfly Bayou Series but I do believe it can be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone , if you love small town romance this book and this series should definitely be on your must read list. I love my visits to Papillion and I was excited to be returning and getting Zephirin Guidry and Roxanne King’s story and this book was everything I expected and more. Zep has a gift, he loves working and dealing with animals and they seem to respond to him but a promising veterinarian career was cut short when he gave it all up to help his family.... Roxanne is a former New York SWAT team member and when her marriage feel apart she heads to the hills or should I say Papillion where she takes a job as the deputy in the small town. A series based in a quirky small town with wonderful characters, great plots and even a alligator named Otis wondering around was always going to be a fun, entertaining read but this author has a knack she brings her stories to life with her wonderful descriptions and her witty tales. I loved this book, I laughed, I smiled and at times I wanted to bang Roxanne and Zep’s heads together, this is a series I highly recommend because I can’t get enough of the residents of Papillion, South Louisiana.

So good

This is book three in the latest series from Ms.Blake and it fun being back in Papillon, Louisiana also known as Butterfly Bayou. The writing is so descriptive that I can easily see myself transported to the Bayou. Papillon is a quirky small town full of characters that are quirky and entertaining, add in Otis the alligator who roams the town as though he owns it and you know there are going to be shenanigans ahead.
This is Roxanne (Roxie) King and Zep Guidry’s story and I have to say I have been looking forward to his story. After spending years as a member of a SWAT Team in New York, Roxie made the move to Papillon to become a deputy.
Zep is a charming Cajun free spirit who does his best to rile Roxie up. Despite not taking him seriously and regretting the one night they shared together, Roxie is still drawn to him. Zep however, knows she is the one for him but convincing her has proven difficult, to say the least. The chemistry between them sizzles and I loved seeing familiar faces pop up whilst reading.
When Roxie’s past comes back to haunt her, Zep will step up in a way that will leave no doubt that he has her back and is the man for her. I love how Lexi Blake writes about the characters and all the interfering that you only get from a small town, it really adds an additional layer that makes this such an entertaining read.
