REVIEW: Moonlight Sins (de Vincent, #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Moonlight Sins - Jennifer L. Armentrout

OMG. This book was just amazing. I’m talking, can’t put down pure awesomness.

I’ll admit, prior to starting this book, I’d seen reviews online and they made me question my decision to read this. Yeah, they were all good reviews, but some of the things that were being said left me feeling like this wasn’t going to be a book for me. Or at least, not at the moment. What if I hated it!? I love JLA’s books. I haven’t read a bad one yet. But what if this was the first? What if it was awful!? So, with much trepidation, I opened my kindle and started. And I’ll be honest…the only reason this book wasn’t read in one sitting is because I’ve been sick with a cold. No matter how hard I tried, I kept dozing off. And every time I dozed off, I’d dream about the book, just to wake up and start the process all over again.

This book definitely stuck with me while reading. I just couldn’t get enough of it. Yes, it’s a romance (heavy on the romance *wiggling eyebrows*, but at the same time, it’s so much more. It has mystery, suspense, secrets, intrigue! I loved the characters and the way the story unfolded. Bit by bit, like peeling an onion. Each reveal kept me trapped in my kindle, waiting for the next thing I’d learn about the characters.

I loved Lucian and Julia. I loved watching them banter and dance around each other. I loved watching them get to know each other. They just kept me enthralled. Honestly, when the book was over, I wasn’t ready to let them go. I wanted more. I wanted to see more of them making their life together, being a team and see where their future goes.

I really loved how entranced Lucian was with Julia. When he told her about his family history, and how the de Vincent men fall hard and fast, you could see it happening to him, even as he wasn’t ready to admit it. I loved how protective he was, how he couldn’t stay away from her. Every time they were together, it was pure magic.

While I was definitely a little hesitant going in, this book ended up being amazing. I hated that it ended and wanted to stay with the characters longer. I can’t wait for the next book!

September 2018 Round- Up

Hello everyone.

I hope you had a wonderful September and a nice start to the fall season. Fall is my favorite season but not because of pumpkins, which I really dislike lol. But I love snuggling up and read with either a nice cup of coffee or tea. 

Speaking of reading I did get a fair amount of books in this month, now I just need to find the motivation and time to write the reviews. 

As you probably saw the summer time giveaway is over, all winners have been notified. We have a new giveaway up, to make it easier to put it in here at the end ;)  October is coming and with that some awesome new books. Here are some I'm looking forward to. The one I'm most looking forward to and most likely I will make sure I can read is 

Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas

Kingdom of Ash (Throne of Glass, #7)

Here are just a few of all the awesome October releases.

 

 Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor

 

25446343

 

What If It's Us by Becky Albertalli

 

36260157

 

The Darkest Star by Jennifer L. Armentrout

 

34221193  

Shades of Wicked by Jeaniene Frost

 

38388574

 

As for what I'm reading for now ... Last month I mentioned I started Courting Darkness by Robin LaFevers. I decided to wait a bit longer with it since it doesn't release until February 2019 so I put it aside. 

 

But right now I'm working on Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

 

33784284

Seventeen-year-old Audrey Rose Wadsworth was born a lord's daughter, with a life of wealth and privilege stretched out before her. But between the social teas and silk dress fittings, she leads a forbidden secret life.

Against her stern father's wishes and society's expectations, Audrey often slips away to her uncle's laboratory to study the gruesome practice of forensic medicine. When her work on a string of savagely killed corpses drags Audrey into the investigation of a serial murderer, her search for answers brings her close to her own sheltered world.

The story's shocking twists and turns, augmented with real, sinister period photos, will make this #1 New York Times bestselling debut from author Kerri Maniscalco impossible to forget. 

 

And I think I will start Cress by Marissa Meyer today 

 

13206828

 

In this third book in the Lunar Chronicles, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, now with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they're plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army.

Their best hope lies with Cress, a girl imprisoned on a satellite since childhood who's only ever had her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker. Unfortunately, she's just received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.

When a daring rescue of Cress goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a higher price. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing prevent her marriage to Emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only hope the world has.

 

October goals? Just one, having read all my ARCs in time, so I can read Kingdom of Ash when it releases. Other than that I will just go with the flow.

Okay here are finally all my September reads as always you can find the buy-link in the reviews that will be linked. I hope and wishing everyone a happy and maybe spooky October ;) 

 

Happy Reading :)

As Scion turns its all-seeing eye on Paige, the mime-lords and mime-queens of the city’s gangs are invited to a rare meeting of the Unnatural Assembly. Jaxon Hall and his Seven Seals prepare to take center stage, but there are bitter fault lines running through the clairvoyant community and dark secrets around every corner.

The Darkest Star by Jennifer L. Armentrout

 

 

When seventeen-year-old Evie Dasher is caught up in a raid at a notorious club known as one of the few places where humans and the surviving Luxen can mingle freely, she meets Luc, an unnaturally beautiful guy she initially assumes is a Luxen…but he is in fact something much more powerful. Her growing attraction for Luc will lead her deeper and deeper into a world she’d only heard about, a world where everything she thought she knew will be turned on its head…

#1 New York Times, USA Today, and internationally bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout returns to the universe of the Lux in this brand new series, featuring beloved characters both new and old.

Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs

 

 

Anna never knew werewolves existed, until the night she survived a violent attack… and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she’d learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. Then Charles Cornick, the enforcer—and son—of the leader of the North American werewolves, came into her life.

Charles insists that not only is Anna his mate, but she is also a rare and valued Omega wolf. And it is Anna’s inner strength and calming presence that will prove invaluable as she and Charles go on the hunt in search of a rogue werewolf—a creature bound in magic so dark that it could threaten all of the pack.

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

 

 

Cinder is back and trying to break out of prison—even though she’ll be the Commonwealth’s most wanted fugitive if she does—in this second installment from Marissa Meyer.

Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit’s grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn’t know about her grandmother, or the grave danger she has lived in her whole life. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother’s whereabouts, she is loath to trust this stranger, but is inexplicably drawn to him, and he to her. As Scarlet and Wolf unravel one mystery, they encounter another when they meet Cinder. Now, all of them must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen Levana.

Clean Sweep by Ilona Andrews

 

 

On the outside, Dina Demille is the epitome of normal. She runs a quaint Victorian Bed and Breakfast in a small Texas town, owns a Shih Tzu named Beast, and is a perfect neighbor, whose biggest problem should be what to serve her guests for breakfast. But Dina is…different: Her broom is a deadly weapon; her Inn is magic and thinks for itself. Meant to be a lodging for otherworldly visitors, the only permanent guest is a retired Galactic aristocrat who can’t leave the grounds because she’s responsible for the deaths of millions and someone might shoot her on sight. Under the circumstances, “normal” is a bit of a stretch for Dina.

And now, something with wicked claws and deepwater teeth has begun to hunt at night….Feeling responsible for her neighbors, Dina decides to get involved. Before long, she has to juggle dealing with the annoyingly attractive, ex-military, new neighbor, Sean Evans—an alpha-strain werewolf—and the equally arresting cosmic vampire soldier, Arland, while trying to keep her inn and its guests safe. But the enemy she’s facing is unlike anything she’s ever encountered before. It’s smart, vicious, and lethal, and putting herself between this creature and her neighbors might just cost her everything.

*I received a free copy from the publisher via Netgalley and chose to leave a voluntary review. Thank you!*

 

 

I love Jennifer L. Armentrout’s work and I loved the Lux series. So this book was a must read for me. I was super excited excited to dive back into the lux world. You don’t have to have read the Lux books in order to read this one but I would recommend it, not only are they great but it will help you with past events and or people. But again, it is not necessary in order to read this book.

That being said, sadly I didn’t love as much as I thought I would, it was not horrible by any means, but it also was not the best she has written. The good,  it had plenty of action and humor, we get from her books. Loved the banter we got between Luc and Evie, most of the time, there were a few times it just seemed forced or over the top. It also had its suspense and defiantly kept you asking for more and wanting to find out, who ,what and why….And of course there is the romance, which also had its up and downs. We see some lovely and familiar faces again and it was great. But also meet some pretty great new people.  

Luc, it has been a few years since we saw him last but he is still the funny dude we met way back when. Just all grown up. Or well almost ……. And for the most part I liked him, funny, cocky and willing protect those around him. Now that includes Evie.  Sometime now with Evie he had his moments, that more than anything made me roll my eye, not so much him as them together. Evie, it is clear from the beginning that there is more to her and it takes a bit before we get there but I must say I was just like “ oh okay…..” not shocked or anything it was just hmm okay. Maybe that was because, I was not her biggest fan and she annoyed me a lot of times. She often just came over as whiny more than anything. The romance sometimes seemed to be taking over the story but it all came back around.

For me, the whole narrative came over as very young or naiveish ?! IF that is a word lol. I know it is YA, but so was the Lux series but that by any means did not seem that young/ and or teen angst written as this book.

So overall, we get a teen angst insta love/lust teen drama but that is also wonderfully connected to the world we read and loved. In a weird way I couldn’t quit. I was often annoyed with it but also couldn’t put it down.

So the verdict.  I give it 3★, I didn’t love it and I didn’t hate, it was just in the middle somewhere. That being said though I most likely will get book two to see how it continues.
