There is something I had suspected from pretty early on in the first volume that meant I had a rock in the bottom of my stomach from the minute I picked up this book. I went in expecting an emotional read but I honestly had no idea how much it would wreck me, I don't think I've ever read another book that has hit quite so close to home or made me sob so hard as this one. The fact that I'm tearing up again now just thinking about it and that I've been an emotion mess all day since finishing this ...more

Julie Ann Walker’s finale to the tale of three friends whose relationships were so deeply intertwined is heart stopping, emotionally raw and for anyone who has experienced one of the major events, heart achingly real. This is both the beginning and the end of an epic love triangle where things we do for love are limitless.

I was gutted by the unselfishness, the emotional depth and gut-searing events to the point that I seriously believe this volume requires a trigger warning, not of darkness, not

There are not enough words in the world let alone the universe to describe how wonderful this book is.

This epic love story , set in the hustle and bustle of New Orleans is without any doubt the most beautiful and compassionate story I have ever read. It rates amongst the highest of the high. Words are simply not enough to describe how brilliant this is.

My heart ached, I had tears in my eyes as I read of the three friends. The love and devotion between them was incredible The descriptions were s

Heading into the final volume of this trilogy, I thought I was mostly prepared for what was to come. Man, did I lie to myself! I’m not even going to bother summing this one up, because if you haven’t read the first two by now... well, you’re missing out on what has turned out to be a surprisingly beautiful story about love and friendship. I won’t lie though. Keep the Kleenex handy. By the the time I finished this book, I was crying like nobody’s business and feeling rather bereft, yet I was also ...more

This is not a standalone. DO.NOT.DO.IT. don't fucking ruin it for yourself.
- This is long winded. You're not getting any instant gratification here. Be patient.. I promise it's worth it.

Julie Ann Walker has gone done it. My cold stone heart legit broke into smithereens.

An epic tale of friendship and love, compassion and patience.
This truly is a heart wrenchingly beautiful broken story of three people who have to fight through their past in their present to

I sit her stunned, slayed, and overcome with emotion. This book wraps up this epic saga, this story of characters who became my friends, became real, and who allowed me the privilege of coming along with them as they journeyed through this part of their story. They had a lot of life happen, and I was there with them. For the highs, for the lows, and for the memories and moments. Their story packed an emotional punch, and will stay with long after I have read it, and long after I write this

I don't think I can come up with the appropriate words for this final volume of an epic love story. I'm blown away by its power and intensity. Maggie, Cash and Luc are characters that you want to know. They are real, down to Earth, full of adventure and love for each other. Reading their story leaves an indelible mark that is to be treasured. Oh, and make sure the tissues are still close by, you are going to need them.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Beautifully written and emotional journey of Love

It hard to describe a book that encompasses true love and friendship so well. Three friends whose love for each other is timeless. Where friendship spans over a decade and where they were there when each needed it.
A journey of life and death. Love and Happiness, and of Living and Acceptance.

This trilogy is by far my favourite of 2019 and needs to be read by all.

Absolutely LOVED the conclusion to this trilogy! This picks up right where book 2 left off and it will leave you in tears. Julie Ann Walker has out done herself with this series. You won't be disappointed with this series.

I received a copy of this series in exchange for an honest review, which I have copied from my romance novel review blog:

In Moonlight and Memories was such an interesting, captivating read. It isn't the Julie Ann Walker we've come to know and love--hot, spicy, sultry, and filthy--but a gentler, softer side that's drawn out over three spectacular novels.

This is a hard novel to review without spoilers (which y'all know I'm strongly against), so I won't speak too muc

In the final volume of M&M series, I have to say that there are very few authors who leave me stunned, at a complete loss of words, as I sit here trying to write this review. I just don't know if I can put what I felt reading this into words but I am going to try. It is epic reading on a scale so large, so grandiose, that you are left emotionally bereft. I cried and cried some more and then I sighed as it ended. Just Wow! Now, I have read all of Ms. Walker's Black Knights Inc., series. Those boo ...more

🌟🌟4 1/2🌟🌟

Now, we get the present. We have their history and now it’s time for the present. Now, I had a little feeling of what was going to happen; I still wasn’t prepared. Volume III was just pure perfection. It was hard to write a review on the previous two volumes because I knew that the third was waiting for me and the story wasn’t over in one or two.

Volume III was heartbreaking as a whole but only because of who was remaining. I highly recommend all three volumes.

Well done Ms. Walker!

This is explosive finale will leave you breathless with all the feels, angst, and more. I was blown away by the depth of emotion. I won't do my traditional style of review because it would absolutely give too much away. Ms. Walker was a favorite author of mine already but she's cemented her status as one of my top favorite authors to read. Go to your nearest bookstore or favorite online retailer and get this series. You won't be disappointed by it.

This is a truly amazing love story! Be sure to pick up all 3 books because it’s one continuous story.
Cash, Luc and Maggie’s friendship will forever live in my heart. I loved these characters from the moment I met them.
Their friendship and love was a joy to watch grow.
Julie’s writing style is wonderful. Her Black Nights series is one of my favorites but she gave me another to love.

This is the third part of the story and yes you definitely have to read the previous.

There was a feeling I had from the first part that I knew what was going to happen. It took me on a roller coaster of emotions and broke me. It was beautifully written and while they all might not be the most appealing characters to start, I really felt connected to them in the end.

Just when you thought you were done putting your emotions through the wringer... WOW!

This book wrapped up this trilogy in the most perfect way.

What a beautifully written story of friendship, loyalty, love... it was everything!

This tale will put your heart through the wringer. But it will begin a healing process. I highly recommend you hop on this emotional roller coaster. Be sure to read all three together for the full journey. A five-star series.

From start to finish with all three books they completely wrapped me up. I truly found them to be a masterpiece. Such an emotional journey with epic love and loss. Funny bits and warm touching bits. To truly immerse myself in a book, to feel the wind and hear the sounds was absolutely amazing!!!

It's coming up on Mardi Gras in this third and last installment in the In Moonlight and Memories contemporary romance series that is revolving around three friends in New Orleans who are reaffirming and re-examining their relationships.

This eARC was sent to me by the author and Limerence Publications LLC for an honest review.

My Take
It's all about love, friendship, and sacrifice. In this third installment, we finally get to the truth of Dean's death. And it's not what I (nor Maggie) was expecting

In the third book of this trilogy, who knew that we were going to be so completely heartbroken by the turn of events. In the end we see how truly selfless and how much love Cash has for Maggie and Luc. I did not expect the need to go find tissues. This was such an amazing ending/conclusion for the trilogy and it shows the talent of Julie Ann Walker and her ability to create such amazing characters. All I've got is WOW and thank you for sharing such a heartbreaking story with your readers. The em ...more

An Epic Best-Seller!

This part of the story is where it all is getting exceptionally good! We learn that justice has its way of digging in and waiting for the most opportune time to come calling in all its glory!

Sheriff Sullivan is not only a very corrupt official, he is also arrogant and just plain mean. I feel bad for Maggie since she alone has had to deal with the Sheriff’s relentless harassment involving the disappearance of his son, Dean. these last ten years that the guys have been gone. S

A beautifully tragic love story that will leave you raw and in tears.

Cassius Clay Armstrong is a young man who is battling with his mind and his heart to give Magnolia May Carter the life she deserves, even if she is not aware that it’s also the life that she wants. Cassius “Cash” strolled into Magnolia “Maggie’s” life when she was but 15 and his heart found her and wouldn’t let go, but life has a way of tricking you sometimes. He knew that he was not good enough for her and

I was given all three volumes in exchange for an honest review. This review is for all three volumes because there is no way you can read Volume 1 and stop. This book pulls at your heart strings and then kicks you in the gut. Its been a long time since I've read a book that made me cry with tears rolling down my cheeks but this one definitely did it. This is the story of a love triangle....that isn't.

The story itself takes place in New Orleans which truly becomes a fourth character in the story

OMG so damn good!!! I love this author so I was completely baffled why I was not hooked on book 1 but I kept on because as I stated I love Julie Ann Walkers books, book 2 got me more involved and book 3 almost broke me. The emotion is .... Maggie, Luc and Cash are friends and more. Maggie and Cash are sweethearts and Luc is their best friend. Cash and Luc leave Maggie and enter the military.

I have to start by saying that I LOVE Julie Ann Walker's writing. I've devoured her Black Knights & Deep Six series & anxiously awaited each new installment. That being said, "In Moonlight and Memories" is nothing like those action-packed books but because of what an amazing writer she is, I was going through Walker withdrawals & I was anxious to get my hands on these books. They did not disappoint.

Though in three volumes, "In Moonlight and Memories" is really one continuous story of the love &

This is a review for the trilogy In Moonlight and Memories (not for each Volume).
I’m a big fan of all books written by Julie Ann Walker, but when this trilogy came out, I was skeptical.
Why you ask? First, usually I avoid books with cliffhangers and second, I usually can’t stand a love triangle. But what they said, was right: Do not stop until you finish! 
Maggie, Cash and Luc – what a trio. Maggie and Luc were friends in high school, while Maggie and Cash were high school sweethearts. Maggie was

Wow, I’m blown away❣️

It’s funny when you read certain genres of books by certain authors you have certain expectations. When I first saw these books in an email, I really wanted to get stuck into them but I was worried because after reading Black Knights so religiously would I enjoy this particular story? Right now, I’m blown away (and sniffling because yes I ugly cried for the last half hour😭) but this book will be one that forever stays in my memories and I know I will remember for a long time
