The de Vincent brothers are back—and so is the intrigue that surrounds them—in New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout’s sizzling new novel . . .

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 malicious hangers-on who frequent the mansion. But escaping memories of Gabe, much less his smoking-hot presence, is harder than expected—especially since he seems determined to be in Nikki’s space as much as possible.
Gabriel spent years beating himself up over his last encounter with Nikki. He’d wanted her then, but for reasons that were bad for both of them. Things have now changed. Gabe sees more than a girl he’s known forever; he sees a smart, talented, and heartbreakingly beautiful woman . . . one who’s being stalked from the shadows. Now, Gabe will do anything to keep Nikki safe—and to stop the de Vincent curse from striking again.

He moved forward, maybe a foot or two, but stopped like one would if they were approaching a rabid dog. A heartbeat passed. “Your hair . . .” He tilted his head to the side. “It’s different.”
“Yeah, it is.” Her hair used to be a rather dull medium brown, but then she found this amazing hair stylist in Tuscaloosa and turned her brown hair into this array of blondes and browns, using some weird technique called balayage. “It’s basically just highlights and stuff.” “Stuff.”
His gaze flickered over the bun. Uncomfortable, she scanned the kitchen. “And my hair is longer. A lot longer.”
His brows lifted.
Was she really telling him the length of her hair? This was the most strained conversation she’d ever had in her life. And that was, well, it was sad. She peeked at him. It used to not be this way. Back before . . . well, before she ruined everything, he’d be teasing her and asking about her college. He’d be talking to her like he could actually stand being in the same room with her.
She needed this conversation to be over like it was yesterday and she also needed to figure out how she could work here and not run into Gabe. The house was big enough that it should be possible. “I need to get back to—”
“Planting your face against the over door?”
Her shoulders slumped. “Actually, I need to finish the potatoes. So, if you’ll excuse me.” She started to turn away, praying that he’d just leave.
“That’s it? That’s all you have to say to me? Because I have a lot I need to say to you,” he said. “Never in a million years did I think I’d see you here again.”
Nikki’s spine stiffened like steel had been poured into it. Oh God. Her throat spasmed.
“We need to talk.”
“No we don’t,” she said quickly. “We do not need to talk about anything.”
“Bullshit,” he snapped, and his voice was so much closer that she turned to him on instinct.
Gabe was now at the edge of the massive island, only two or three feet from her. She stepped back into the counter. Her heart thundered in her chest as her gaze flicked to the kitchen door.
“No one is coming near here,” he said as if reading her mind. Her gaze flew back to his. “Dev is in his office on the second floor, in a meeting and your father is out with the landscaper. No one is going to hear us.”
A weird mixture of sensations assaulted her. One was a chill that skated down her spine. The other was a tight, hot shiver that danced over her skin.
Gabe kept coming at her, not stopping until he was right in front of her, separated by a few inches. She sucked in air, catching the crisp, clean scent of his cologne. It reminded her of storms, of that night.
That was the last thing she wanted to be reminded of.
Like his brother, he was a good head and then some taller than her, so right now, her eyes were fastened to his chest.
Thank God he was wearing a shirt.
“I . . . I don’t want to talk,” she managed to say.
“I do.”
“You owe me this.”
Her body jerked as she pressed her lips together. He was right. She owed him a conversation. “Okay.”
There was another beat of silence and then he asked in a voice so low she almost didn’t believe she heard him right.
“Did I hurt you that night?”

I'm a total JLA fan.  While I really enjoyed Moonlight Sins, I had a different reaction to this one.  I loved it.

There is so much going on in this book.  The secrets that were disclosed from the first book and the impact they're having, the freaky house, and the very complex relationship between Gabe and Nik are all just a part of it.  Strange things keep happening to Nikki.  What is going on and who's responsible or it is the house???  This author does a great job of making you wonder.  And it's so fun to try and figure out all the little clues.

As for the characters, most of our time is focused on Gabe and Nikki.  Of course, we see the happy Lucian and Julia.  The scary as all get out Devlin is there with his down right cruel fiancee Sabrina.  Grrrr...I really do not like Sabrina.  Maybe hate is the right word.  And her creepy brother Parker?  He's definitely in the hate zone.  Both of them make me want to reach inside the book and slap them.  As you can see, my emotions are involved, always a good sign.

But the favorite?  It's Gabe.  Yeah, he's doing this yo-yo thing where he says things that make me mad and then he's a sweet as he can be but I still end up loving him.  He's conflicted.  He wants Nik, probably since they saw each other last...yeah that.  No telling on that.  Read it for yourself.  But there are lots of issues.  The ten year difference in their age is the simplest of the issues but Gabe can't seem to get his head wrapped around all of them and figure out what he really wants.  His heart knows.  His mind keeps debating it.  But the thing is that he has the biggest heart and the kindest soul of any of the brothers.  He brings her smoothies and does other really thoughtful things.  The whole...yeah not telling you that either but it's sweet!  And the way he loves her?  Smokin' hot and yummy all mixed together to make him capture my heart.

Nikki is strong and I really admire her willingness to help her mom when it's super hard on her.  Her mom has no idea just how hard it is for her to walk back in the de Vincent estate.  But she does it.  And she isn't this demur little girl that bows her head and does what she's told.  Nope.  She talks back to even the scary Devlin.  I loved that about her.  When she told Gabe to clean his own rooms, I cheered!

Of course, I still have questions.  I had so many at the end of Moonlight Sins.  Some are answered and new ones have joined on the list.  Oh, there's one in particular that I really want to know the answer to.  I NEED book three to find out the truth.  I assume we will finally get all the answers in that book.  Is it January yet?

This is a good one.  If you love to put the pieces together as well has have the sexy nice and hot, then you don't want to miss this one.  I do think you can read it as stand alone.  While you will enjoy it more if you've read Moonlight Sins, there is enough explanation to get by without it.

Don't pass this one by.  Good stuff, right here.
