Goodreads Summary:

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.

My Review:

I always feel like I’m coming home when I read Armentrout’s books. They are always addicting. And I love characters she writes with A+ personality. I actually liked this one better than Moonlight Sins, and as usual, there was plenty of swoon.

What I liked best about this one was the slow build up between Gabe and Nikki. There wasn’t kissing or anything until farther in the book, although there was plenty of attraction and cute moments. I thought the relationship between Gabe and Nikki was better in this one because they had known each other before. I always love those circumstances. Also, there was some good drama!

I will say, the book did sort of feel long and could have been cut a bit. But that’s about it. Now, I’m still curious about Devlin’s book because he’s been my favorite brother since the first book, so I’ll have to see what happens to him!

Goodreads Summary:

Julia Hughes has always played it safe until she learned a very painful lesson. Now Julia’s starting over with a job in the Louisiana bayou—and a scorching encounter with a stranger, only to discover he’s Lucian de Vincent… her new employer. The de Vincent brothers share a massive fortune and a dark reputation. Julia cares for their troubled sister, but a menacing presence in the mansion—and the ever-present temptation of Lucian—prove dangerously distracting.

Lucian’s grandmother claimed de Vincent men fall in love once—and hard. Apparently, it’s Lucian’s turn. Julia’s compassionate care of his twin makes Lucian want to lay himself bare. But some secrets are better for Julia not to know.

The recent “suicide” of Lucian’s father is the latest in a string of deaths on the estate. Someone is eliminating the de Vincents. And the best way to get to Lucian may be through Julia…

My Review:

I don’t read a lot of adult romance books, so I wanted to read this one since I like a lot of Armentrout’s stuff. I also hate, hate, hate the cover! But I also hate ab covers… What I was really hoping for was a Louisiana, Gothicish, creepy vibe, but I didn’t get that. But that’s okay.

Romance was great as always, and I already knew most of Armentrout’s male characters are dominant. But, I have to be honest here—at first Lucian creeped me out. Instead of just calling Julia her name all the time, he would say, “Ms. Hughes.” It just comes off as if she was seventy, and a school teacher or something. But, I mean if someone called me “Mrs. Robinson,” I would tell them to get out of here! Then Lucian’s persistence was a little weird. Eventually, I did come to like him, though—and wanted to know more of his backstory.

My favorite aspect of the book was the mystery of it. I wish there would have been more in it! I liked the whole thing with Lucian’s sister, hearing footsteps, etc. Now, I did guess early on what was going on, but it didn’t affect my liking the book. I was just like, “I knew it!”

I did like Julia and felt she was a strong, independent character. Both of the brothers were interesting. But I’m a little disappointed that Gabe’s book is next, because I really am wanting to know more about Devlin and be inside his head! Overall, this was a fun and romantic read.
