Synopsis from Goodreads
It takes a fearless woman to love the most scandalous man alive in New York Times Bestselling Author Jennifer L. Armentrout’s breathtaking novel
Even a ghost hunter like Rosie Herpin couldn’t have foreseen the fateful meeting between two mourners that has brought her so intimately close to the notorious and seductive Devlin de Vincent. Everyone in New Orleans knows he’s heir to a dark family curse that both frightens and enthralls. To the locals, Devlin is the devil. To Rosie, he’s a man who’s stoking her wildest fantasies. When a brutal attack on her friend is linked to the de Vincents, he becomes a mystery she may be risking her life to solve.
Devlin knows what he wants from this sexy and adventurous woman. But what does Rosie want from him? It’s a question that becomes more pressing—and more dangerous—when he suspects her of prying into the shadows of his past.
Now, the legends surrounding the de Vincents may not be myths at all. But if she’s to discover the truth, she must follow them straight into the arms of the man she can’t resist—the handsome devil himself.
Moonlight Scandals is the spectacular conclusion to the de Vincent series. I have to say, shockingly, Devlin is my absolute favourite of the three siblings. The man behind the mask is completely different from everything we have been led to believe about him.
True evil has a face and it is that evil that has permeated the very ground upon which the de Vincents have built their home. The gothic elements within the narrative add to the atmospheric nature of the plot. I loved the inclusion of the paranormal investigators within Moonlight Scandals, especially as I have a teeny tiny Supernatural addiction.
Rosie is a brilliant character, sassy and determined and very much a straight-shooter, which is a novelty to Devlin who is used to the obsequious nature of those around him.
The chemistry between Rosie and Devlin takes them both by surprise, especially as Devlin does his best to alienate Rosie from the beginning. However, fate has other plans for our thorny couple; determined to cross their paths as much as possible without literally smacking their heads together 😂
Moonlight Scandals will keep you on the edge of your seat throughout every page, revelation after revelation trying all of the plot threads together with a few surprises along the way. Rosie’s backstory adds an extra edge to the dynamics of the story from a few different angles; I loved how she was able to keep her optimism alive with all of the events surrounding her and Devlin.
Moonlight Scandals also sees the progression of the previous couple’s stories adding a sense of fulfilment to the series. I hate letting go of a family I have become so invested in but then again, do we ever really let go of the characters we read about or do we keep a part of them forever 😍 This is why I love reading 😁
