This book has a paranormal feel. It's not but it feels that way. I kept expecting ghosts or vampires to jump out somewhere. Yeah okay, so the house is haunted and that reputation has been long standing. Those footsteps upstairs don't help. But the whole story gives off this creepy vibe that had me thinking paranormal.
As for the characters, I'm still wondering about them. The brothers each have their issues. They keep their secrets but they are loyal to each other. Lucian is this man slut that I don't even like at first. He grows on me and I do end up loving him but the beginning of the book had me seriously questioning him.
About the beginning of the book...yeah nothing like starting with a...nope not telling. Read it.
The story is a complex puzzle that had me guessing all over the place. Was it this person or that? What is the motive? How is everything connected? It had me wondering so much. One of the guesses I was sure of at one point and then had dismissed ended up having a bit of the truth. But truth? What is that? This book makes you question that. And questions? I still have them.
I'm assuming this series is companion but I think there must be some overarching questions that will fill the whole series. This reader certainly hopes we get the answers by the end.
It's great suspense and emotional romance. It's great characters and great writing. It needs to be on your TBR list. It needs to be at the top of your TBR list. You know you want to read it! Do it.
1. Three Hot Brothers
Moonlight Sins centers around the de Vincent clan, which admittedly, by the time we join the story, has dwindled to only a handful. But, it does include the three de Vincent brothers - Lucian, Gabriel and Devlin. All three are super hot, super rich, and super complicated. They even have foreboding nicknames - Lucifer, Demon and Devil. Charming, right? Each brother seems to be messed up by their family, and it's manifesting in different ways. But, you can be sure that, if a de Vincent is present, there will be smoldering broodiness.
2. A Kick Ass Setting
Once again, Jen Armentrout has brought us to NOLA as a setting for one of her books. But, this time, we're not in NOLA proper. We're in the legit bayou. Complete with antebellum house, Spanish moss and humid nights. I love books set in interesting places - it makes them even more intriguing. Speaking of the house...
3. A Creepy House
The majority of the book takes place in the de Vincent mansion, an old, southern-style home with widow walks, columns and secret passageways. And people use those secret passageways to their advantage many times during Moonlight Sins.
4. A Brave Girl
Julia is a nurse hired by the de Vincents to take care of their comatose sister. She's out on her own for the first time and is determined to take charge of her own life for a change. The de Vincents are domineering and scary, and Julia is not a bit happy with Lucian who first met her under false pretenses. She does her job well and asks questions when she needs answers. And she's careful, but not afraid to go after what she wants when she recognizes it.
5. A Mean Girl
Devlin's fiancee is a pretentious, snooty socialite, and I promise you'll get so mad at Devlin for being with her every time she's present.
6. A Slow Burn
It's clear from the beginning that Lucian and Julia have crazy amounts of chemistry, but thanks to a bad choice made by Lucian in the beginning, Julia fights it for a long time. And good for her, too. I'd be so flaming pissed if I was in her shoes. But, when they're living together and helping to care for the same person, it's inevitable that her walls will fall and they give in to all that heat.
7. A Hot Romance
Lucian might be a enigmatic, cagy bastard, but when he falls for Julia, he falls HARD. He is so protective of her and so taken with her, it's impossible not to fall in love with him too. There was no hope at all for Julia. Especially when he puts the moves on her. And this man has MOVES.
8. A Dysfunctional Family with a Mysterious Past
The brothers' family is seriously messed up. There's a "curse" that affects any woman the men in their family fall in love with. Their mother died a tragic death. Their father died under mysterious circumstances, Their sister is catatonic after having been missing for ten years. Their uncle is a controlling jerk. And the brothers themselves aren't super warm and fuzzy with each other. It's a complicated history that has affected their presents.
9. A Mystery to Solve
Where has Lucian's sister been all this time? Is she really sick? How did the brothers' father die? Is the curse real? There are many mysteries to uncover within the pages of Moonlight Sins, and for the most part, by the end, you have your answers. At least some of them. There's some questions left unanswered, and some new ones created that will take us into Gabe's book next.
10. An Exciting Beginning to A New Series
Moonlight Sins pulls bits of lots of stuff I love about Jen Armentrout's books and brings them into one book. There's heat and heart and a mystery to solve. There's an epic romance and a complex family. I'm excited to see where it goes next.
The de Vincent brothers are handsome, extremely rich bachelors who all live in this massive mansion in this gated compound. It's hard to tell if the brothers like each other, because it seems as if they don't - they diss each other quite brutally...but we don't know why. There is talk about a painful childhood but not the specifics. There is a mention of their "jobs" but not really what they do. And Lucian, the hero and youngest brother in the family, is good at playing this mysterious, sexy bachelor but he comes across as just someone young and pampered who is always at home, doing nothing. In other words: beyond the wealth and good looks, he's quite boring.
I thought that when Julia Hughes, our heroine, starts working for the de Vincent family, that the book would get more interesting. It doesn't. Her character follows the same pattern: she talks about a painful past, but it's not really given in details. While she seems like a dedicated nurse, she doesn't seem to have any other interest. She's not even funny. She is as dull as the other characters in the series. So you wonder what is it about her that could possibly capture the interest of such a jaded playboy like Lucian.
The only one worth looking into is eldest brother Dev - but only because he seems to have some dark layer hidden somewhere.
Lastly, I couldn't help but wonder if this book is supposed to be somewhat of a mystery. There's a lot of those "hearing footsteps but no one is there " scenario, or video cams that don't work, and strange ghostly images and noises in the hallway. I half expect to read up about a haunting. But again, the book just states that but doesn't delve into it. It's like there's a shadowy image but that's it. There's a weird noise but that's it. Where is the context? When you add in the sexy brothers at play thing...I mean - what is this book trying to be about? It's like the author wants to put so many things into play but can't handle all the balls in the air.
All in all, I'm really confused and disappointed. I was looking forward to this series and while I like most of Jennifer Armentrout's books, this one is just so uninspired. She could have done so many cool things with this series and she still might...but not in the first one. Sadly, I'd think twice about buying the other books in the series.
