Review: Moonlight Scandals by Jennifer L. Armentrout

It takes a fearless woman to love the most scandalous man alive in New York Times Bestselling Author Jennifer L. Armentrout’s breathtaking novel 

Even a ghost hunter like Rosie Herpin couldn’t have foreseen the fateful meeting between two mourners that has brought her so intimately close to the notorious and seductive Devlin de Vincent. Everyone in New Orleans knows he’s heir to a dark family curse that both frightens and enthralls. To the locals, Devlin is the devil. To Rosie, he’s a man who’s stoking her wildest fantasies. When a brutal attack on her friend is linked to the de Vincents, he becomes a mystery she may be risking her life to solve.

Devlin knows what he wants from this sexy and adventurous woman. But what does Rosie want from him? It’s a question that becomes more pressing—and more dangerous—when he suspects her of prying into the shadows of his past.

Now, the legends surrounding the de Vincents may not be myths at all. But if she’s to discover the truth, she must follow them straight into the arms of the man she can’t resist—the handsome devil himself.

MY REVIEW

“Something flickered across his face that looked an awful lot like respect–reluctant respect, but she didn’t give a flying chupacabra’s ass what Devlin de Vincent thought or felt.”

“He kissed her as if her wouldn’t allow a single part of her to be left unexplored. The way he kissed her wrecked her.”

“His stare was greedy and devouring and she wanted to be devoured. Consumed. Taken.”

“Maybe it’s…fate. You said our paths were destined to cross and maybe that’s true. I don’t know, but I do know there are things that happen that no one can ever explain. So, maybe there’s a reason? Some higher force at work here.”

Man, oh, man! I can’t believe it’s over! What a crazy, thrilling and exciting ride. Finally, finally, finally we have Devlin’s book and let me tell you, his book was so worth the wait.

Now, I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve had a million and one questions ever since I started the De Vincent Series. And just when I think I know what is going on; that I’ve figured out all the clues, my world gets turned upside down. This book had so much mystery, so many twists and turns. I didn’t know what was wrong or what was right. But, I do know I couldn’t put this book down. I was absolutely hooked and couldn’t wait to see just how this story was going to unravel itself.

Finally, finally, we get to see inside Devlin’s head, to finally understand him, what makes him tick and his motives. It was everything that I was waiting for. There is so much more and I mean so much more to him than meets the eye. Each one of his actions is fueled by reason that only Devlin knows. Devlin is such a complex character. Only he could make me hate him & want to throw my kindle and yet in the very next breath want to swoon & understand him. And who better than to try to make sense of this complicated man, but Rosie. I absolutely LOVED Rosie! She was tough and completely unafraid of Devlin. She spoke her mind and gave Devlin a run for his money. Together these two were explosive. They had amazing tension and I loved their banter. I loved watching the two of them fight and bicker. I never knew what they were going to say next and they certainly kept me on my toes. But, I loved, loved, loved watching these two together and seeing them try to overcome all the obstacles life threw their way.

Overall, I really enjoyed Moonlight Scandals. The scandals and twists were totally delicious and kept my eyes glued to the pages. I enjoyed catching up with the De Vincent family and finally getting to see what makes Devlin tick. For me, this book was a fun puzzle to solve and I enjoyed every moment. From outstanding characters to an exciting plot. To writing that sucks you in and keeps you on your toes. To the magic that only New Orleans can bring. To paranormal research and an unlikely paring. To an unexpected romance that knocks you off your feet and keeps you begging for more. Take all of that, add in some crazy and I mean crazy twists, and you got yourself one satisfying ending to a series that filled you with question after question…..
