The de Vincent brothers are back—and so is the intrigue that surrounds them—in New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout’s sizzling new novel…
Nicolette Bresson never thought she’d return to the de Vincents’ bayou compound. It’s where her parents work, where Nikki grew up… and where she got her heart broken by Gabriel de Vincent himself. Yet here she is, filling in for her sick mother. Avoiding Gabe should be easy, especially when so much of Nikki’s time is spent trying not to be stabbed in the back by the malicious hangers-on who frequent the mansion. But escaping memories of Gabe, much less his smoking-hot presence, is harder than expected—especially since he seems determined to be in Nikki’s space as much as possible.
Gabriel spent years beating himself up over his last encounter with Nikki. He’d wanted her then, but for reasons that were bad for both of them. Things have now changed. Gabe sees more than a girl he’s known forever; he sees a smart, talented, and heartbreakingly beautiful woman… one who’s being stalked from the shadows. Now, Gabe will do anything to keep Nikki safe—and to stop the de Vincent curse from striking again.
Earlier this year I reviewed Moonlight Sins, the first book in the de Vincent series and fell in love with the brothers. I enjoyed that book so when the opportunity arose to review this one, I jumped on it. This book could be read as a stand-alone, it summarizes all the important parts from the first book, but you might be a bit confused in some places. It would be in your best interests to read Moonlight Sins first.
I love reading romantic suspense when it’s done right. Thankfully, this one was. Much like the first book, this was romance with a bit of suspense and just a whispered suggestion of some paranormal activity. The suspenseful parts help facilitate the growth of the relationship, that is what I like to see in these books. From the plot to the characters to the setting, everything about this book was perfect.
At 400 pages, it was longer than the books I typically read. I never thought I would say this, but I wish it were longer. All the loose ends are neatly tied together, the mystery was solved and the couple found their happily ever after. It’s just, I devoured all 400 pages of Gabe and Nikki over 2 days. I think I’m experiencing withdrawals. I miss them so much and I want more.
If you’re a fan of romantic suspense, this book has it all. There are secrets, scandals, stalkers, misappropriated affection. It had me on the edge of my seat and although there was foreshadowing, I had no idea who the bad guy was until the big reveal.
I enjoyed getting to catch up with the de Vincent brothers and exploring New Orleans through the characters eyes. It was a great read and although I’m struggling to review the book without spoilers, I can’t recommend it enough.
Overall, Moonlight Seduction was a second chance romance with a twist. I would recommend it to anyone looking for something to read during these hot summer evenings.
