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 mali ...more

4.5 stars!

MUCH better than the first book in this series. Oh my god, SO MUCH BETTER!

Moonlight Seduction is the second book in the de Vincent series and I think it can be read as a standalone. There’s stuff that happens in the first book that comes to play in this one but I think JLA did a really good job of explaining everything in an understandable way.

This book is about Nikki and Gabe. When she was a teenager, Nikki would follow Gabe around with moon eyes, head over heels for him and he trea

Awesome story!
I can always tell a when I have read a great story. It is when you pick up the next book and you remember everything in the last one. Moonlight Sins was the first in a series of books about three brothers with plenty of family issues and family secrets.

This book focuses on Gabe and his powerful connection to Nikki. A connection that should never be. It’s not accepted. It’s not supposed to work. They fight it as best as they can. Keep it hidden until th

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. Read More.

It was better than Lucian's story mainly because I enjoyed Gabe more. I also liked the age gap difference which is a total plus for me. The low burn, the angsty situations and all the smart and funny dialogues are a go for. I am very curious what kind of hero Devlin will be.. SO CURIOUS!! ...more

***4.5/5 Stars***

Moonlight Seduction was a whirlwind of emotions and completely addicting! Being back in this world, and falling for a different de Vincent brother made me oh so happy. I loved how mystery weaved into the story and that there was a strong female who I adored. So if you like adult romance that is slow-burn, sexy, will pull at your emotions and is a page turner then you definitely have to give this book a try!

Moonlight Seduction is the second book in Jennifer L. Armentrout’s de Vincent series, and I have very mixed feelings towards this book. I really wanted to enjoy this one, but I just couldn’t bring myself to feel more than mild interest towards it. I finished the book, but it was just to see how everything came together – not because I was truly invested in the story.

I’m now of the solid belief that Jennifer L. Armentrout is not an author for me. I found her Lux series to be addictive, but I was

This surpassed my expectations. Melt-worthy.

I didn't really enjoy book 1, so it came as a shock when I found that I couldn't put this book down. Nikki and Gabe were just so precious. There were moments that I totally figured out before the time, but I still loved the feel of mystery.

There is a reason why JLA is my fave, and that's because it is physically impossible for me not to give any book, story, swoon worthy love interest or relatable heroine she writes less than 4 stars. It doesn't even matter what genre it falls in or if it's a story about two potatoes falling in love.

This contemporary-paranormal induced romance is no different. Not only I love the New Orleans setting and the haunted vibe of this series, but de Vincent brothers have me hooked. So much that I am star

Get ready to get to back to the deceptive and mysterious De Vincent world. This time we get Gabe story’s and his powerful but denied connection to Nikki. Jennifer really undid herself in this one. The slow build romance will keep you on the edge of your seat and you might feel like throwing the book away from time to time. There’s a definitive attraction between those two but drama keep coming in the way (but hey it’s not a Jen’s book without drama!)

Armentrout writing sizzles in the second installment of the de Vincent series. Nicolette’s and Gabriel’s chemistry are explosive, now they just have to realize they are perfect for each other … and that is where all the fun comes in.

Events surrounding the de Vincent family are unusual if not down right dangerous. Nicolette has managed to keep her distance from the de Vincent’s, specifically Gabe, for the years she’s spent in college. But now she’s back to help work for the de Vincent family whil
Well, Gabe was one of the main things I liked about the first book, so I was really excited to see he was getting a story and yet, I’m fairly disappointed.

I liked Nikki and Gabe well enough. She’s smart and sassy and loyal. He’s got a lot of potential, but since he’s used to getting everything he wants, he comes across as a jackass most of the time. The growth of their relationship didn’t ring true to me: she was still a smitten teenager and he was still a jackass. However, can we please get 10

A highly enjoyable suspenseful romance filled with mystery and intrigue! This is Gabe's story and he is the middle de Vincent brother and I actually preferred this one to the first book.

Nic's parents are the long time housekeeper and butler for the de Vincent home. She grew up with them and so she is fully aware of the weird and mysterious things that occur in the house and the suspected curse on the family. As a girl, she has had a long time crush on Gabe who is 10 years her senior an

A slow burning romance, Moonlight Seduction was intriguing and suspensful with unforgettable secondary characters!

I found myself drawn more to the characters in the background at times with all the back and forth, will Gabe, won't Gabe and his douchebag ways. Then we have Nikki. She's sweet and feisty, yet a bit naive at times. Especially when it comes to Gabe. She's totally smitten with him, but at the same time she also fights and puts him in his place.

The second book in the de Vincente series, this is the story of middle de Vincent son, Gabriel, and, in a delicious set-up, the daughter of the family’s long-time housekeepers, Nikki.

You can read this one as a standalone as there is a good recap given, but beware that this book contains massive spoilers for the first one so if you’re planning on reading them all – do it in order.

I love this series. I loved the first book and I was excited for the second book. This will be Nicolette and Gabriel’s story. You will have to read the books in order to understand what is going on, plus there’s a lot of character development and story building so it’s just in your best interest to read them in order.

Having read one book and listened to another book, I will say this, the audio version is way awesome. You can’t go wrong with Erin Mallon’s voice. I do admi

I received an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. Review can be found on *Milky Way of Books*

Gabe's story was quite intriguing even from the first book "Moonlight Sins". And I really wondered what Nic's connection to him would be.
So, while the story was slow burning and had some funny moments, I didn't expect it to escalate in that scale towards the end. The house was creepy once more, Dev was a cold-hearted man (or he is the best actor I've ever seen) and Nic knew how to keep her cool with

Moonlight Seduction is the second installment in the addictive new contemporary romance series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. These books are for a more mature readership since the characters are in their late 20ies/early 30ies and the problems and issues they're facing are of adults and not adolescents. What I particularly love about this series is the suspense factor. We're still in the dark when it comes to finding out who killed the patriarch of the de Vincent family. But his death is not the on ...more

Original review on Julalicious Book Paradise

So I started this book intrigued about what we were going to find out about Gabe. He always seemed like the most likable brother, but you can tell there was something dark surrounding him too and you just want to know what it is.

The story begins a bit after where the first one ended. Nikki comes to work at the De Vincent’s mansion to help out her parents since her mom is sick. Though she didn’t particularly wanted to come back, she does it for her fami

This book is Gabe’s story and after the first book I was ready for him since he is really sweet in the first book. He is the middle de Vincente child and he sounds incredibly HOT.

It starts off going back 6 years and giving a bit about Nikki which is the daughter of the de Vincente’s long time heads of their house staff, Richard and Livie.

This book wasn’t quite as creepy as the first book but it was suspenseful. I will say that this one was much easier to figure out and so I guess m
