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.

Well then. I did NOT see all that coming. I mean, if you're reading book three in the de Vincent series, you know the family that has born these three hot, yet damaged brothers is seriously messed up. I promise you - you don't even know the half of it. Just like you don't know anything you thought you knew about Devlin de Vincent. I thought I would have a hard time loving this guy. Let's face it - he's been hard to love so far. He's cold, distant and seemingly self-serving. Sometimes I would think he adored his brothers, and other times I wondered if he could care less. It would only take getting inside his head to understand this very complicated man and what motivates him. And once I had that opportunity, I fell as hard for him as I did his brothers. It helped that Jen Armentrout gave him a delightfully antagonistic love interest in the form of Rosie Herpin. She was exactly what Devlin needed. She didn't stroke his ego, but rather busted his balls and called him out when he was being a jerk. But, she wasn't so hard that she didn't show her soft underbelly at times. That's what made her perfect to me. She was super strong and brave, but showed vulnerability in just the right moments. And it took Devlin a couple tries before he treated that vulnerability the right way. Even though each book in this series was it's own standalone story, there's been a story arc that's stretched across them all, and everything comes to a head and wraps up in Moonlight Scandals. And I promise you - you will be surprised. You will be shocked. It's pretty crazy awesome, actually. Amid all the secrets and lies being uncovered, Devlin and Rosie do have their super hot, romantic moments. And it tempers everything that's going on just perfectly. Moonlight Scandals was a great ending to this series. I'm sad to say goodbye to these brothers.

Although Dev’s book wasn’t my favorite, I still found it hard to say good-bye to this series. So much so I didn’t want to read it when it was first released. I kept starting it and putting it down because I knew I wasn’t going to have another book to look forward to. But once I started it, it was hard to put down. I finished it in two days! Rosie is a ghost hunter and Devlin de Vincent is the rich guy whom everyone in New Orleans knows as the Devil. Everyone seems to shy away from him, but he meets his match when he meets Rosie. She's not scared of him, and she's determined to find out the truth about him. Devlin never was my favorite of the 3 deVincents. He was a jerk throughout the entire series and I just didn't care for him. But once things started falling into place, it made so much more sense. It's reasons like this that I love JLA's books. Her characters all have so much depth and it's clear that she was thinking about this book while she was writing the first. To be able to think that far ahead and still have the plot and characters come full circle CANNOT be an easy feat. Her books always amaze me like this. As for the romance, I wasn't as into it as I thought I'd be. Maybe it's because like I said, Dev was never my favorite, but Rosie definitely was. Idk I guess I just didn't care for them together. Maybe it was the fact that it seemed like everytime they got to be with or around each other I thought Dev ruined it. (Which is 1000% what happened) Idk. Whatever it was, something in me just didn't care for them to end up together. As for the plot, I was hanging on to the edge of my seat when I was listening to this. I filled out my April spread in my Reading Bullet Journal while listening to this and I swear the entire afternoon passed by without me even knowing it. I lost myself in New Orleans and Rosie and her investigation team and Dev and his family. Another thing that I love about JLA's books. Her writing style is so easy and I know I can trust her to easily lose me in her books. Even if the characters aren't my favorite to begin with. I knew this was going to be a hit or miss with me, so I wasn't surprised to kind of fall in the middle. I was so into the plot, but the characters weren't my favorite. But then again, they were SO. WELL. WRITTEN. Its going to be hard to be done with this series and I can only hope she writes more Romantic Suspense for many, many, many more years to come lol

4.5/5 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

These characters! They make this book. And characters are the most important part for me! I wasn't expecting to love this one the best of the series. Wasn't expecting to fall for Devlin. He certainly doesn't make that easy but it happened. Through both book one and book two of this series, I haven't liked Devlin very much. He was always prickly and suspicious. He keeps everyone at arms length. So many suspicious things about him and none of it cast Devlin in a good light. He never smiled. He never was a part of the bothers lives. They just shared the same mansion. And it all left me feeling like Devlin, the Devil as he was called, wasn't part of the human race. But then Rosie came into his life. Rosie has a very confident and demanding personality. Hilarious and driven, I loved her ghost hunting ways. Outspoken and willing to stand up to Dev as no one else ever has. She demanded that Devlin be human. She brought the smiles out of him. She insisted he be human. He brings the rage cleaning/organizing out in her. I loved Rosie. And while Devlin tried very hard to push her away with his lack of trust and dare I say his di** he** ways, there was something that pulled them together. Call it the de Vincent curse or some smokin' hot chemistry but they kept finding themselves around each other. And once they were around each other, the banter began. Beaded curtains and glow in the dark stars were but the beginning. They could argue with the best of them. He didn't trust her. She thought he was a jerk. But neither could deny the attraction. From the first kiss, they were both ruined for anyone else. Of course it wasn't quite that easy. It never is. But the chemistry between them lite the pages on fire. Both feel it and are amazed and confused by it. Which brings me to the story. It really is a recovery story for both of them. Both have strong personalities and they need each other. Neither is willing to admit that or submit to that but fate has her ways. The unraveling of all the secrets had a huge impact on them. The surprises? Oh yeah, those were there. This author has a way of pulling surprises out of nowhere. And there is one BIG one in this book that I NEVER would have seen coming. Answers for the whole series are finally given. One I had expected in part but that too had a twist I hadn't seen. The bottom line is that the pages just flew by. I devoured it in a day. Then I paced around not wanting to leave this world, this family. As always, JLA delivers an incredible story with great living, breathing, well rounded characters. She is an auto buy author for me and has been my favorite author for a very long time. This is her 50th book. I was reading her when it was her first book. Loved her then and love her now. If you've never read her books, you're in for a treat. It would be amazing to go back and experience them all again for the first time. As it is, they are on my reread list a lot. This series is best experienced from the beginning. You can read this stand alone but it will ruin the experience of reading the other two. AND you do want to read the other two. Jump on this bandwagon and experience this book, this series. It's amazing.

Oh how I loved this book. I devoured it! It has a mix of mystery, romance, and a bit of paranormal. The story line flows perfectly. You can feel the chemistry between the heroine and hero in the writing. Overall, the book was just what I needed.

Shocked. I started this book thinking Devlin "Devil" de Vincent was going to be hard to like. Was I wrong. Jennifer L Armentrout does it again and again. Her male lead characters often surprise me. They start off seeming as jerks that you will never sympathize with or like. Devlin is starts of so smarmy and ends up loving so fiercely. Is he a bad guy? Is he a good guy? Like Rosie, that is up for your inturpretation. I liked Rosie from the moment she arrived in Moonlight Seduction. She's smart, witty, sarcastic, hilarious, and so caring. I love how it ventures into the paranormal without actually being a paranormal romance. The twists and turns should be applauded. And, that ending. WHEW! Moonlight Scandals gets all the starts.

Definitely worth the wait - very scandalous and such a page-turner. This book was a mix of everything - so well balanced and with so many twists and turns you may find yourself constantly screaming NO WAY and OMG at your wall. I knew this was going to be the cherry on the cake with this series, but I didn’t see half of the things coming – not at all. And now I just want to go back and reread everything knowing some of the scandals that would follow. I wasn’t sure what to think of Devlin, having in mind all his appearances in the previous stories, but the man absolutely surprised me. He was the typical bad boy, alpha hero, super overprotective of his loved ones and had this tough exterior, but inside he had a huge heart. Just my type of a male hero. Confident, sexy and a bit arrogant, but also caring and attentive. But then little by little, we got to know him and he got under my skin. He has gone through a lot and his story was really an intriguing one to unravel. Rosie was such a perfect match for him in so many ways. She looked like his total opposite and maybe in a way she was. But what I loved about her was the way she challenged him and stood up to him. She was such a strong female lead. Went through a lot as well, but she wasn’t intimidated by Devlin and openly put him on his place. I had so much fun with their banter and interactions. They were like fire and fuel. Tried to fight their attraction, but the imminent explosion of passion and feelings was inevitable. A combustible combination and the heat was off the charts hot. The steamy scenes were combined with a really great romance though and there were some parts that made me sigh and swoon. The suspense and paranormal elements in this one were so strong, I was constantly looking over my shoulder at night. It was creepier than the other two IMO. There were so many surprises along the way with this book that you should be prepared for the constant jaw-dropping at the final 20% or so. So many twists and turns, so much action that you won’t be able to stop reading before you finish. Definitely, a great ending for the series, although I’m secretly hoping to see more of this world sometime soon. The de Vincent family was not your typical family, but they were а close-knit family that loved fiercely. Those 3 were some of Jen’s best BBFs, so be sure to check them out and enjoy the weirdness and secrets surrounding the de Vincent brothers.

Holy llama drama! This book was AMAZEBALLS! Jenn blew this one out of the park. The first 2 books in the series were really good, but this one has been my absolute favorite of the 3! It started right off being interesting and piquing my curiosity. It was an intense, mysterious, sexy, heart-pounding, teeth grinding, high anticipation, mind-blowing read! I could not put it down, except to sleep and do my job. I've always loved Rosie's character, but this one she thoroughly impressed me with her compassion, kindness, wit, strength, courage, and feistiness! I loved how she would stand her ground and not be a doormat while Dev spoke to her, and how she pushed his buttons when nobody else would dare do so. Dev has always been a mystery from the beginning of the series. We really get to see why he is the way he is. I admire the fact that he did everything for his family. He was protective, intriguing, intense, misunderstood, and broken (from the more we learned about him). I loved seeing him change, become a bit...softer, yet no less intimidating, while spending time with Rosie. I liked that she helped him let his guard down, even if only for a little bit. And what we learn of his past? OMG! The chemistry between Rosie and Dev was off the charts HOT! Whether they were arguing with one another or actually being friendly with each other, you could feel the chemistry and anticipation build! And when it exploded, whooo boy did it ever explode! We learn answers to questions from the previous books, learned new information that blew my mind, and all the plot twists were INSANE...but oh so good!!!! All in all, this was my fave in the series and I would highly recommend this book (and the rest in the series)! It can be read as a standalone, but if you're like me and need to read series from the beginning, nab the first 2 books and devour them before jumping in to this story so you get the full effect of JLA's writing! Thank you Jenn for this ARC. This is my honest review.

Wow! Moonlight Scandals is definitely a fitting title! There are so many scandals, lies, and secrets just waiting to be revealed in this book. Needless to say the storyline was really intriguing and surprising! I've always been super curious about Devlin and what else he was hiding, I just wasn't expecting all of that! He's a complex guy. At first he seems like this closed off, cold, and untrusting guy, but there's so much more to him. I loved seeing him change and open up throughout the book. Rosie is perfect for him. She knows how to give everything right back to him, their banter was hilarious! She just gets him in a way no one else does, they just make sense together and can be super cute together. I'm happy with the way things turned out and the update in the epilogue.

When Rosie happens to meet Devlin de Vincent at the cemetery, she's shocked to come face to face with someone of his notoriety...but she's even more shocked when he shows up at her apartment - and has no idea who she is. Devlin is epically wary of Rosie, but he's also so drawn to her that he doesn't know how to process his feelings. And while Rosie is floored at Devlins ability to be a complete and utter tool she finds that she can't deny the pull that she feels toward him. While Devlin *wants* to trust Rosie, every event in his life makes his so reluctant to trust anyone, including his brothers. While he's fighting his attraction to Rosie, his uncle is breathing down his neck, and both of his brothers are slowly pushing past his barriers in ways you cannot imagine...but, is there hope for Devlin to find redemption in the woman he knows he should avoid at all cost? Moonlight Seduction is a wild ride from start to finish, with so many twists and turns you'll be begging for more time to process! Jennifer L. Armentrout provides the reader with a stunning conclusion to the de Vincent trilogy. This books will keep you on the edge of your seat as you devour the book.....give yourself the time to read this one in one go. You won't regret a second!

WOW! The whole series in two days. Thank goodness for the snowstorm! This one was my favorite and wrapped everything up nicely. There was not as much sexy times in this one but still just as much chemistry between the characters, just not as much sex. Rosie is a ghost hunter and she gets mixed up with Devlin deVincent who everyone is convinced is really the devil. Well, I have been intrigued by Devlin since the first book and it was so good to see him unraveled and boy does he ever! Rosie does not put up with much from him and gives as good as he dishes out which is comical and keeps this story moving. There are many twists and turns and that makes for a splendid read. Overall, I recommend this series. If you can make it through the first book, the second and third are well worth your time! **Received this ARC for review**

OMG, this twisty-turny, so atmospheric, such a creepy setting, so filled with "wait...what??? moments--and those de Vincent heroes? Yes, please! ;) Boy, did Moonlight Scandals have its work cut out for it. It needed to answer all the questions left unanswered by the first two books, pull together all the series' loose threads into something that finally made sense, and (at long last!) get readers into the head of the biggest mystery of all, Devlin de Vincent. It did not disappoint! The last 25% or so is pretty much one big OMG...WTF? moment after another, and I was absolutely unable to put the book down for even a second until I'd gotten to the end from that point on! (And then I needed a nap. Because I was drained, I tell you.) Rosie is more than equal to the challenge that Dev brings--every time the two of them are on the page together is pure romance reading gold. I loved that she was a paranormal investigator in her spare time, because of course she was, and that she was incapable of baking without getting covered in flour and sugar (because who isn't? Obviously her mother and sister use witchcraft to stay clean--that's just not natural). Her love of beaded curtains and glow in the dark stars also helped to cement her high-up position on my "heroines I'd love to be in another life" list. And did I mention how magic she and Dev are together? Whether they're at the admitting they're attracted to each other stage or not, every darn page they're on together is so much fun to read. This book really isn't the one to start with if you haven't read the other three books, though--I mean, you can definitely get the gist of what's going on, but to really appreciate all the reveals and twists and turns (not to mention how well we finally get to know and understand Dev here) you need to read the first two books first. Trust me, you'll be glad you did--it's an unforgettable ride! Rating: 4 1/2 stars / A I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

I was really looking forward to the third novel in the De Vincent series by Jennifer L. Armentrout because I needed to know about Devlin; I needed to know who he really was. I won’t lie, I wasn’t expecting all these turns of events when I began to read it. I don’t even know where to start this review because a lot seems to happen in it. I just know that I had difficulties putting it down. I think my work might have suffered from it… oopsie. Okay, let’s start with Devlin then because he was the third and most mysterious brother of all three. I swear that I never really knew how to feel about this one because he seemed to have no emotions and everything seems to be business for him. Then, we finally get his book and I get to see that like more often than not, there is more than meets the eye. I really enjoyed getting more to his background because it explains a lot about his attitude. Rosie… Rosie… Rosie… God, she is probably one of my favourite characters of this series. I really love her personality and I love how she isn’t scared to tell Devlin what’s actually on her mind. She’s such an interesting character and so funny. When she is first introduced in the second novel, I already liked her friendship with Nikki and I wanted her with Devlin especially after their first meeting; there was something there. The sexual tension between Devlin and Rosie is off the chart. I don’t know if we can call this a slow burn, but I will say that it kept us begging for them to do something about it for a while. They have such different personalities but at the same time, they are connected because of these differences. And along this, a lot of events unfold and you don’t even know where to look; Jennifer made sure to write this book to keep us on our toes. A lot I wasn’t expecting and I loved this book for it because I love when I finish a book and I’m like… Okay, they had me there. This book has everything to keep you hooked from the beginning to the end. Even though it has an end, I wouldn’t mind if more books were added to this series. A lot of things could still be written about this world. Overall, this was another awesome book in the De Vincent series and if you haven’t started it, please do it now because you won’t be disappointed.

**E-ARC provided for an honest review. Oh. My. God. You guys!!!! Armentrout does it yet freaking again! Moonlight Scandals was so much more than what I was expecting. I was expecting greatness, but this literally blew my mind! If you have not read or heard about the de Vincent trilogy I don’t know what you are waiting for. Each story gets better and better, and Moonlight Scandals is the perfect way to end this epic story. There are three couples in this trilogy, and every single story is so different. Armentrout’s writing style never ceases to amaze me. From page one I was captivated. It sort of begins the day things go south for Nikki in Moonlight Seduction, but we see that day from our new lead’s eyes. Rosie. Out of the three female leads (Julia, Nikki and Rosie), Rosie is my favorite, Nikki and Julia are amazing, but there was something about Rosie’s voice that just made her so much more relatable for me. I don’t know if it was her way of viewing life or how she didn’t give two s*&ts about what Devlin did or what anybody thought about her. I just connected with her character. Rosie is a strange woman to say the least, she is obsessed with the afterlife, specifically with ghost and spirits. I mean most people find that weird, I’m not debating whether or not spirits and ghost exist, what I’m saying is that most people aren’t as obsessed with the subject as much as Rosie is, and you certainly don’t read a lot of main characters that are fascinated by it. We can say Rosie is special and different, and it takes a woman just like Rosie to understand and love a person such as Devlin de Vincent. If you have read the first two books, I’m pretty sure you are not fond of Devlin. Nobody can be, he is conniving, cruel and just plain evil. I’m also not saying that we see him in a different light in this book.We do, but we don’t. He is still conniving, cruel and just plain evil, but in this book, we learn why. The why to any story is always the definitive factor as to whether or not we hate the character. At least that is how it is for me. I cannot tell you I love Devlin after reading Moonlight Scandals, but I understand him. There are so many factors contributing to his way of seeing life. The reasons why he is they he is and why he does anything are so heartbreaking and disturbing in so many ways that I finally saw things the way he does. Rosie walked into Devlin’s life when he needed her the most. From previous books we know he is kind of miserable and he only cares about keeping the family company growing. The de Vincent name and his family are the only two things he cares about and in my opinion that was sort of driving him more insane than he already kind of was. When he meets Rosie (which by the way, a little spoiler, when they meet is not when you think they meet. You’ll understand once you read the book), he finally starts to see life in a different light. Both of them are a little broken, Devlin more than Rosie, but the day the officially meet, both of them experienced something they hadn’t in a really long time. They felt something. And that something kept them coming back to each other even when they knew they shouldn’t, and that is one of the many reasons why this book was so wonderful. There is also the whole “death follows us” concept. Death has for real been following the de Vincent’s lives for a long time, but from the moment Julia walked into their lives to the moment Devlin decided to open up to somebody, d

This was definitely my favorite of the series. I had been intrigued by Devlin from the very first book and the pop up of Rosie in the second book nearly had me exploding at the idea of them together. Oh man, they didn’t disappoint. She’s so sassy and he’s so stoic and the button pushing and banter and JFC THE UST...I could have been smothered by it. Plot wise, it was decent. The build up is a bit of a slow burn with a lot of push and pull. We finally get some answers, but not before an entire heap of new questions arrive. There were a couple of things I didn’t see coming and an epilogue that was fantastic. Overall, this was the book that captivated me the most. I was a little disappointed about the whole “curse” thing. And while the snippet of a futuretake we got was satisfying, I would have liked more. **Huge thanks to Avon Books for providing the arc free of charge**

Moonlight Scandals: A de Vincent Novel (de Vincent series Book 3) by Jennifer L. Armentrout is spicy! You're definitely going to want to pre-order this one. There are 3 De Vincent brothers; Lucian, Gabe, and Devlin. Lucian and Gabe each had their story told, and now we hear from Devlin. I loved Lucian and Gabe, for sure, but Devlin is where it's at! Devlin is a mystery waiting to be unraveled. He keeps himself hidden and everyone else much farther than arm's length. While the other brothers are living their best lives and not letting anything stand in their way, Devlin stays in the shadows and harbors many secrets. If there's a problem, Devlin is going to fix it. He will do what is necessary without blinking an eye. But then Rosie walks into his life and changes everything. Not only do we get to see inside the mind of the dark, dangerous, and reclusive Devlin, but there is one hell of a twist that I guarantee you will not see coming. This book is one part "HOLY HOTNESS" with a side of "OMG!! DID THAT JUST HAPPEN!?!?" I give this book 5 stars and 2 thumbs up!!
