Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Jennifer L. Armentrout delivers the unforgettable story of a woman whose new life has just begun - but may end in murder....

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, working for the infamous de Vincent family, the massively wealthy brothers who are haunted by a dark reputation and whispers of misdeeds. Hired to care for their troubled sister, Julia can't afford any distractions, but the menacing presence in the mansion and the ever-present temptation of the handsome Lucian de Vincent isn't something anyone can ignore. 

Julia knows better than to get wrapped up in Lucian. He's from a world she can't relate to. Plus, he's her employer. But his wicked touch and sensual promises are too much deny. What starts with a kiss ends with so much more. 

Lucian is the youngest brother - the wildest, most unpredictable one. He's the unrepentant bachelor of the family, known for his escapades in and out of the bedroom, and he wants Julia. There's something about her that makes Lucian want to lay himself bare, but some secrets are better left buried, right along with a past that could not only bring down a dynasty but destroy Julia in the process.

5 Moonlight Sins Stars

It’s no secret I love this author, she is one of my go to’s for anything YA, NA, or paranormal. So I was looking forward to a contemporary romance from her. Oh boy does she deliver.

I loved that there was also a mystery going on as well as the romance. It made the story so much more intriguing.

Julia is a character I wanted to get to know she acts out of character but then reins it in. And you have to wonder what is she going to do? I loved that she puts Lucian in his place. Girl power.

But Lucian isn’t that much of alpha that he can’t see what he does wrong. I love that he can make anything sound dirty. I can’t get enough of his character.

The connection these two have is steamy no lie they are attracted to each other in a big way. But Julia isn’t a hit it and quit it kind of girl. And Lucian is having the feeling and he doesn’t know what to do. The battle they face is not only between them and this story will keep you interested let me tell you.

I really enjoyed CJ’s narration she can read me books all day long. Blake’s narration is ok, it isn’t who I would have picked and some of these voices were more distracting but they weren’t terrible. Maybe just not thought out enough.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

Very Dark and Delightful

Where does Moonlight Sins rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I've listened to several audiobooks in my day, I absolutely love this one! The narrating was done very well. Loved both narrators, they did an excellent job!

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the darkness of this story. It's very mysterious. As I'm listening, I kept looking around and becoming paranoid over any little noise.

What does CJ Bloom and Blake Richard bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I loved the southern accent each character gave to the de Vincent brothers. It's easy to forget we are in New Orleans, but they make their character's roots obvious, really love that!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There is a little bit of a plot twist towards the ending. That definitely moved me. Made me second guess some of the ways I was thinking at the beginning of the story.

Any additional comments?

Excellent book for someone looking for NA (new adult) romance. It has romance and mystery. The characters are well written and the story exciting! Never a dull moment at all. Highly recommend this one. The narration is wonderful too!

A very sinfull book

I don’t write review so I don’t know how this works but the overall story was amazing and I feel alright about the characters. Julia was a little too shy for my taste but it fits in. The narrator Blake Richard wasn’t my favorite. His voice got to scratchy with some characters. I really think people should read this especially if your a JLA fan. Can’t wait for the next book.

Umm. Hello CJ and Blake. Holy COW.

Would you listen to Moonlight Sins again? Why?

Yes. Because I'm obsessed with the narrators. They really made this a stellar listen.

This was my first time listening to CJ. I kind of feel like an idiot right now because she's amazing and I've missed out on all of her totally epic narrations. I'm making up for it, I promise. I've got a CJ binge coming up.

Moonlight Sins is dark and eerie, and my GAAWD her voice contrasts this so well. She adds this unique humor to the text. A little bit quirky, a lot a bit relatable. She embodied Julia's character so well. I don't know who cast CJ for this part, but they're my new favorite person. Genius. My ears are happy. I cried. Listening to this audiobook was like walking into a dark torture chamber but in the middle of the space is my favorite cupcake—CJ is the cupcake.

I want to talk about the inflections in CJ's voice because CJ slayed. You never know what you're going to get when you try a new narrator, and I got exactly what I wanted. A narrator must, must, must be able to have a legit conversation with themselves, meaning: control over octaves. CJ is a master of this trade. She needs to teach a college course called "How to Talk to Yourself for a Living." On top of that, her flow is parallel to none and she makes this good book into a great book. A++ across the board.

This was actually my first listen to Blake, too. Yeehaw! I entered all sorts of new territory here. You know...I hesitated with his performance at first. He reads slowly, which I love, but there is this airiness that pushes him forward and I wasn't sure if I liked or not.

Three hours later, I was sweating.  No amount of fanning my face could have cooled me off. This man. THIS. MAN. Midnight Sins is da-a-ark. Blake! Augh! My heart.

Call me obsessed. Blake's dialogue is out of this world. I mean, the man can TALK to himself. He's very different from other male narrators in the sense that he separates a character's dialogue from the narration even when he's in the same POV. Am I making sense right now? I'm sure I sound like a crazy person. After you listen to so many audiobooks, tone muddles together, personalities dilute. No no no, not here. He narrates with that feathery, debonair tone, and then when he enters dialogue it's like he's legitimately talking to me.

Friends, this is so amazing, especially since the book is in third person past tense (also my favorite) and he was able to narrate it as such. This was just...addicting? Dare I say, perfect? If you're an audiobook addict, you'll know exactly what I'm talking about when you listen to the audio sample. At first, this caught me off guard because I wasn't used to it. Now, I F-L-O-V-E it. In a sea of narrators, I could pick Blake out immediately. And then I'd ask him kindly (but still sort of threateningly) to read every third person past tense book in existence.

Not My kinda story, BUT...

Not My kinda story, BUT if you enjoy head games, mysteries that are unpredictable and keep you guessing to the very end, then I definitely recommend this book. I love Jennifer L. Armentrout and went to this book as a romance read. Although it had some adult theme romance to it, I wish there would have been more of it. So this is a tough one for me to review because I can appreciate that this is a good book in a mystery theme book but I would have preferred it to be more of a romance book theme.

A first and a favorite!

This is actually my first JLA book (I know, I know). I actually joined her fan group on facebook after listening to this and definitely plan to listen more! I thought that CJ Bloom's narration was particularly perfect! Can't wait to listen to the next one in this series...I assume that one will be about Gabe and I can't wait!!

An intriguing mystery between a sexy romance!

Where does Moonlight Sins rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The audio was pretty cool, the female narrator was my favorite for sure. CJ Bloom has a great way to get into character within seconds. Her female and male voices were great and did justice to the personalities of Julia, Vincent, and the de Vincent brothers.
On the other hand, despite I liked Blake's performance, there were some voices that were too "fake" for my liking, not allowing me to feel the personality of the secondary characters, but he was good for almost all his chapters.

Would you recommend Moonlight Sins to your friends? Why or why not?

Of course, this book was greatly written, the mystery around the de Vincent's family was amazing and despite the whole story wasn't for me but I'm sure a lot of people would love to read a slow burn sexy suspenseful story.

Which character – as performed by Blake Richard and CJ Bloom – was your favorite?

Both characters were great and I loved CJ's performance for Julia and Vincent. She could change the tone of voice and totally make me think it was two different people talking.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was very intrigued by the mystery around the de Vincent0s family.

Any additional comments?

This is my first book by the author and I loved her writing style, it was very fluent and absolutely stunning. She surely created a whole new universe in this series and I'd love to come back to, because Gabriel's book looks totally appealing. In fact, since the first moment he appeared in the book—that scene was awesome—I was really intrigued by him. I'm sad I wasn't completely invested in the main character's relationship, but the whole mystery around the curse of the de Vincent's kept me glued till the very end and wow, what a great ending.
