Moonlight Sins by Jennifer L Armentrout ~ Review

Source:  Received an ARC eBook in exchange for a fair and honest review.

New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout delivers the unforgettable story of a woman whose new life has just begun—but may end in murder . . .

Julia Hughes has always played it safe until she learned a very painful lesson. Now Julia’s starting over with a job in the Louisiana bayou—and a scorching encounter with a stranger, only to discover he’s Lucian de Vincent . . . her new employer. The de Vincent brothers share a massive fortune and a dark reputation. Julia cares for their troubled sister, but a menacing presence in the mansion—and the ever-present temptation of Lucian—prove dangerously distracting.

Lucian’s grandmother claimed de Vincent men fall in love once—and hard. Apparently, it’s Lucian’s turn. Julia’s compassionate care of his twin makes Lucian want to lay himself bare. But some secrets are better for Julia not to know.

The recent “suicide” of Lucian’s father is the latest in a string of deaths on the estate. Someone is eliminating the de Vincents. And the best way to get to Lucian may be through Julia. . . .

I'm still shaking my head after reading this one.  I love this authors work.  She's a master at keeping me guessing and unfolding a story I didn't expect.  Well she does it here for sure.  

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.
