My Thoughts:

Welp. This is definitely my favorite of the series. Holy wow was the book addictive. It’s not a small book, but I easily finished it in one sitting. I just could not put it down and man those twists and turns. The tone of this series has been so fantastic and I love the gothic feel to it.

Rosie is so great. I just love her and her spunk and her obsession with all things paranormal. She is unashamedly herself and I truly love her for that. And she doesn’t put up with Dev’s crap. She calls him on it and puts him in his place when he’s being a jerk, which he is quite often. But man their chemistry is off the charts and the banter is phenomenal.

As for Dev, well I haven’t known what to make of him and I haven’t particularly liked him, but by the end of this book he somehow became my favorite. There is a lot going on with Dev and I couldn’t even begin to guess all of it but he won me over. Only JLA could take a character like Dev and turn him into my favorite of the series.

This book has so many twists and turns and the questions I’ve had since Moonlight Sins finally got answers. I love how each book in the series can stand on its own, but that there are things that carry over from book to book. Honestly some of the twists blew my mind and I really did not see them all coming. I love being taken by surprise and having that mind blown moment. I love the creepy, slightly paranormal vibe this series has, with a side of mystery and suspense and of course ALL THE SWOON. JLA always kills it in the romance department and she killed it once again.

Moonlight Scandals gave me all the answers I was looking for and blew my mind in the process. Dev and Rosie had such a crazy story and I just adored those two. If you like books that deliver the swoon with a side of spine tingling creepiness, this is for you.

Excerpt:

Rosie needed to get going. She’d promised to help her friend Nikki move today, so it was time to head back to her apartment, get changed, and be a good friend for the day. She leaned— A soft, swift curse jerked her head up. Normally, she didn’t hear a ton of cursing in a cemetery. Usually things were quite quiet. A faint grin tugged at her lips. Cursing and cemeteries typically did not go hand in hand. She scanned the narrow path to her right and didn’t see anything. Leaning back, she looked to her left and found the source. A man knelt on one knee with his back to her as he picked up flowers that had fallen into a puddle left by the recent rainstorm. Even from where she sat, she could see that whatever delicate bouquet he’d carried was ruined. Placing a hand over her eyes, she squinted in the sunlight as she watched the man rise. He was dressed as if he’d come straight from work. Dark trousers paired with a fitted white dress shirt. The sleeves were rolled up to the elbows, revealing tan forearms. It was late September and New Orleans was still circling the seventh level of hot, currently as humid as Satan’s balls in the afternoon, so she figured if she was close to dying in her black dress, he had to be minutes away from stripping off the shirt. Still standing with his back to her, he stared down at the ruined flowers. His shoulders were tense as he turned in the other direction. His pace was brisk as he took the flowers over to an old oak tree festooned with Spanish moss. There was a small trash can there, one of the very few in the entire cemetery. He tossed the flowers and then pivoted, quickly disappearing down one of the numerous lanes. Oh man, that sucked. Feeling for the guy, she sprang into action. Carefully, she pulled half of the stems free and then leaned forward, placing the remaining in the vase in front of her Herpin tomb. She picked up her keys and as she rose, she slid her purple- framed sunglasses on. Hurrying down the worn path with patchy grass, she turned down the lane she’d seen the guy go down. Luck was on her side, because she saw him near the pyramid tomb. He hung a right there, and feeling a wee bit like a stalker, she trailed behind him. Of course, she could yell out to him and just hand him the other half of the peonies, but shouting at a stranger in a cemetery just seemed wrong. Shouting in a cemetery at all felt like something her mother would side- eye her over. And no one side- eyed quite like her mother. The man made another turn and then stepped out of her line of sight. Holding on to the flowers, she walked passed a tomb with a large cross and then her steps slowed. She found him. He was standing before a massive mausoleum, one guarded by two beautifully erected weeping angels, and he was just standing there, as still as those angels, his arms stiff at his sides and his hands closed. She took a step for- ward as her gaze drifted to the name on the mausoleum. de Vincent. Her eyes widened and she blurted out, “Holy baby llama.” The man twisted at the waist, and Rosie was suddenly standing within mere feet of the Devil. . That was what the gossip magazines called him. That was what most of her family called him. Rosie liked to refer to him as in her wildest dreams.
