Short review: read it
Lexi Blake is a must buy, must read author. This stand-alone is easy to follow and difficult to put down. No editing errors, gratuitous violence or drag-you-down drama.
It begins on a depressing note that quickly turns into a healing, positive storyline. Descriptive writing that draws the reader into each scene. Realistic procedures, actions and reactions. Believable characters with distinct personalities. Thought-provoking, memorable and occasionally snarky dialogue.
I will re-read this story and always look forward to, pre-order when possible, new works by this author.
My only issue was the very tedious and long exposition passages that I noticed are becoming more prominent in Lexi Blake's books (especially her MT series which I love, but please stop with the 3 pages of inner monologue!). I get that some of it is needed to help us understand the inner thoughts of the charcters, but these passages are getting way overboard now.
Aside from that, loving this new series. Makes me wish Papilon Parish was real so that I can visit!
Lila has a tortured past, and is trying to start her life over in small town Louisiana after tragedy struck in Dallas. She is smart, funny, complicated, and 100% set in her ways. Always the one to help others and never accept help for herself. Her arrival in Papillon lets her know she is going to either make waves or make some personal changes if she wants to succeed in her new life.
Armie is a small town sheriff and single father of a teenage daughter. The big, strong sheriff has had his life changed in ways no parent ever expects. He thinks everything in his life will be same until the day he pulls over Lila Daley on her way into town. Now he has to try to find a way to make the bug city nurse fall for him.

We first met Armie in Close cover and I have waited for his book for quite some time, coupled with the wait for Leila to join the Daley sisters in telling her own story it has been years in the anticipation.
I would never have thought about pairing her with Armie, she was such a closed off character in previous books but it was a stroke of pure genius because the story unfolds so beautifully.
No plot spoilers, the book is exactly what you would expect from the pen of Lexi Blake without any D/s or BDSM elements (which has usually been a feature of her books in the MT world of which butterfly bayou is a side step away) having said that, the sex scenes are well written and proportionate.
I will definitely be purchasing the next book in the series.
So when the nurse practitioner Lila Daley know as the doc in the town ruffles a few feathers with the women in town as Mabel politely says "oh lord, it's starting.Batten the Hatches" a lovely contemporary romance full of emotions high and lows highly recommended
