Sweet Home Louisiana
Boys of the Bayou #2
By Erin Nicholas
Releasing May 7th, 2019
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.

In Sweet Home Louisiana (Boys of the Bayou #2) by Erin Nicholas, Madison Allain and Owen Landry had something special until they parted ways twelve years ago. However, with the recent death of her brother, Madison inherits his share of the company he owned along with Owen, Josh and Sawyer Landry and returns to the bayou in hopes of selling her share. Yet, the men don't make it easy for her and the more time she spends in the bayou, the more confused Madison becomes about her future. Will Owen and Madison get their second chance at happy ever after or will she go back to her life in California?
Normally I find it hard to put down any story Ms. Nicholas pens and this story was no different. Really, right from the beginning I was absolutely hooked, even though I didn't warm up to Madison right away. Indeed, I found her a little high almighty and believing she was too good for the bayou. Yet, as this story progresses, I found my opinion of her changing and I found myself cheering for her to get everything she wants in life after everything she's been through in her past. Will she find her mojo again when it comes to her creative nature?
As for the dialogue, it was extremely engaging and a wonderful combination of intense moments due to the main characters back stories and playful banter that had me loving this couple's journey to happy ever after and the close friendships they share with various secondary characters; characters that made me laugh and smile as they do their best to show Madison that she belongs in the bayou. Will Madison decide to stay?
With the main characters, I absolutely loved Owen as he'll do anything to make life easy for Madison. If she wants to return to where she's been living for so long, then who is he to stop her, even though he still wants her and would love for her to stay in the bayou. Furthermore, the hero is confident, charming, a good guy for all he does for family, especially Sawyer who is suffering so much guilt over what happened to Madison's brother; and I liked the struggle the hero faces to keep his distance, but soon discovers he can't resist the woman that's always had a hold on him.
Overall, Ms. Nicholas has delivered a wonderful and enjoyable read in this book where the chemistry between this couple was intense and convincing; the romance was fan-your-face hot because of the dirty talk between this couple, as Owen brings out Madison's not-so-sweet-and-innocent side; and the ending had me loving the decisions these two make in order to achieve their happy ever after because they're meant to be together. However, it was the epilogue that wrapped this story up wonderfully, as Madison and others are so determined to help Sawyer get past whatever is going on with him. Will their plan work or backfire? I would recommend Sweet Home Louisiana by Erin Nicholas, if you enjoy second chance romances or books by authors Avery Flynn, Kimberly Kincaid, Jennifer Bernard and Samantha Chase.
