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

Posted on

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.

My Review

“She needed to tell him to stop, because she knew that whatever was happening right now was going to change everything between them, and she knew this time there wouldn’t be any repairing of the damage it would wreak on their friendship….and possibly her life.”

“It was just a kiss–their first kiss–but Nikki knew the moment his mouth touched hers, she knew she’d never been kissed like this.”

Moonlight Seduction is sexy, sinful and down right addictive. This story will suck you in from the very first page and will leave you utterly captivated. You will be 100% hooked on each written word and will find yourself unable to put this book down.

Moonlight Seduction is told from dual points of view and picks up pretty much where the last book left off. Only this time, we get Gabe and Nikki’s story…..The last place Nikki ever thought she’d find herself was back at the de Vincent home. But, when her mom gets sick, she has no choice but to return home and help her mom out. Filling in for her mom should be easy, but seeing Gabe again brings a whole set of challenges to the surface. You see, Nikki has been in love with Gabe for as long as she can remember. She thought she left her feelings in the past, but being in this house stirs up all the memories…all the pain. She tries to stay away, but how can she when Gabe is determined to make his presence known…..For years, Gabe has felt guilty for the way things were last left off with Nikki. He’s wanted nothing more than to talk with her and make things right. He knows he should keep away from her, but he just can’t fight the pull. Things are different now. The same excuses don’t seem to work. Gabe’s eyes have finally been opened and he’s now a man on mission. He will do anything to get what he wants and will do anything to keep his family safe. And when a new threat presents itself, Gabe’s devotion will be put to the test…..

Man, Oh, Man! This series is a total new favorite for me by this author. It is additive, consuming and completely captivating. The writing is brilliant and the story-line is just so intriguing. I mean, how can you not be fascinated by the de Vincent family?? The money. The stigma. The lies. The deceit. The curse. I love learning more and more with each book. And if that wasn’t enough, you have the de Vincent brothers. They are a lethal combination in more ways than you could imagine. Mysterious. Cold. Rude. And Sexy as ever. They are perfectly imperfect and you won’t find a more devoted family. They will protect one another, no matter the cost…

And that brings us to Gabe. He frustrated me like no other. He was everything you could want in a bad boy. He definitely wasn’t perfect and always seemed to say the wrong thing. But, when he messed up, he more than made up for it. He was passionate, determined and just the guy to turn Nikki’s world upside down. And Nikki…She has such a big heart and the patience of a saint. She tolerated a lot more than I would have, but definitely knew how to play the game. She’s the kind of girl you’d kill to have in your corner.

I just loved Nikki and Gabe together. Their chemistry was explosive. You could tell the connection and feelings these two had were genuine. I loved their pull and the would they/won’t they moments. Nikki fell hard and fast for Gabe when she was just 16 years old and despite how much she wished it was different, those feelings never faded. Their journey to happily ever after wasn’t an easy one. Not only did Gabe make things hard for her, but this is the de Vincent family!!! You know there would be crazy things thrown their way. All I can say is just sit back and enjoy. You are about to be taken on one heck of a ride!!

Moonlight Seduction was a thrilling read from beginning to end. It had me on the edge of my seat and kept me begging for more. From mystery and intrigue to danger and some seriously sexy good times, this book had it all. The story-line is captivating and will just leave you breathless. I am positively hooked on this series and can not be more excited to get my hands on Moonlight Scandals. I have a feeling that one is just going to knock me off my feet.
