Moonlight Seduction (de Vincent #2) By: Jennifer L. Armentrout

I need to send a huge thank you to not only Avon Romance for getting a review copy of this amazing book to me. But to also Jen and her amazing team. Y'all work so hard to make sure us bloggers are taken care of and I can't tell you enough how appreciated it is.

And I hope you all either start this fantastic series today, or go pick up your copy of MOONLIGHT SEDUCTION to get more of the yummy de Vincent boys 😉😉😉

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.

Oh this book. Be still my romantic loving heart haha.

I loved this one. Which shock shock... It is a JLA book and I don't think I've ever not liked one of those haha.

But really. I loved this book and the characters.

I truly adored Gabe back in Moonlight Sins, and couldn't wait to get his story. And more of the hunky mysterious de Vincent's in general. They're just such an interesting group.
And I love seeing the dynamic Jen has going for the 3 brothers. They're relationships with one another is just so interesting to me. There's so many secrets and lies, and keeping of things close to the vest on each of their parts. But the more we get a peek into all their lives, the more I just can't help but like them. Even the cold and brooding Devlin haha (I'm so ready for that mans story after this one. And I'm keeping my fingers crossed on who his love interest may be. Although I have my guess after this one haha)
They dynamic evolves and changes with them. And the mystery behind their family just gets stranger and more complicated. And makes someone like myself, who likes to guess and analyze plots and what's about to happen so giddy. I can't help but love to keep guessing and using my super awesome bookish spidy powers to discover things. And I never get border with the plausibility of paranormal activity with this family. It's such a fun what if.

Plus the addition of Nikki back in the middle of things made it so much more interesting. I liked her and her spunk, and everything it brought to the dynamic between everyone. Not just Gabe. Her interactions with Devlin helped shine a lot of light on his character. Since we really only got smaller glimpses of him back in Moonlight Sins. And helped show just how kind and caring, yet scary Gabe could be as well. Yes we knew he was the nicest of the 3 brothers from back during Moonlight Sins. But as Nikki comes back into the picture, she gives us a way to really see just how that compassion really can play out. And how big of a heart the man has.
Plus she is just a well written and dimensional character. She's cute and funny. And I love the group of friends she brings into the story. They crack me up.

Plus Nikki just reminded me a lot of myself.
A couple year sago my mom was diagnosed with a brain tumor. And it brought my life to a screeching halt as I abandoned school and so many other things in my life to be there for her and help her out.And honestly I still find myself in a holding pattern from it this day. She's gotten better after numerous surgeries and PT and whatnot. But I could relate so much to Nikki and her need to help her family out. To be there for them, and even take a job she didn't really like or was in her skill set from school just to help keep her family going. And having that to relate to make me adore Nikki that much more. To see a little of myself in this already relatable character. And that's one of the biggest things I love in a book. I want something real.Something that makes me be able to picture these characters as real life people. And while the romance part may be a bit on the fantastical side of things sometimes. I like that it stories like this can be so relatable and give me hope that I can find my mysterious and handsome millionaire to fall in love with haha.

But just as a whole, this book just did such a good job and dragging me in. I could feel the internal struggle going on in Gabe, and was on the edge of my seat as the twists and turns kept coming. Jen did an amazing job writing this book so you never knew what to expect. And I enjoyed the fact that I never wanted to put it down
And that ending! Oh man! haha
Jen pulls us right back in and keeps us guessing. I loved everything about it so much.

I give
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐5 STARS⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
