OND ELDR. BREATHE FIRE.

Raised to be a warrior, seventeen-year-old Eelyn fights alongside her Aska clansmen in an ancient, rivalry against the Riki clan. Her life is brutal but simple: fight and survive. Until the day she sees the impossible on the battlefield—her brother, fighting with the enemy—the brother she watched die five years ago.

Faced with her brother's betrayal, she must survive the winter in the mountains with the Riki, in a village where every neighbor is an enemy, every battle scar possibly one she delivered. But when the Riki village is raided by a ruthless clan thought to be a legend, Eelyn is even more desperate to get back to her beloved family.

She is given no choice but to trust Fiske, her brother’s friend, who sees her as a threat. They must do the impossible: unite the clans to fight together, or risk being slaughtered one by one. Driven by a love for her clan and her growing love for Fiske, Eelyn must confront her own definition of loyalty and family while daring to put her faith in the people she’s spent her life hating.

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.

I finished reading Moonlight Sins a few days ago before writing my review and I am still conflicted with the story and what I should rate it. Did I love it? No. (sad face) Was it entertaining? Yes. Would I read book two, to see what will happen next? Sure. I have so many questions that weren't answered and I think that really played a roll. *sigh* I had such high hopes and wanted to love it so much. I mean, it's Jennifer Lynn Armentrout! I love ALL her books!

As I read, I kept getting a paranormal feel, but even though they spoke of ghosts and family curses, it still didn't go the way I thought it would. I kinda wish it had though.

One of the many things I love about Jenn's books is her secondary characters. I love them just as much as the main ones, and at times, even more. But Midnight Sins, is just different. I couldn't connect with the characters. Any of them, to be honest.



I did enjoy the love connection between Julia and Lucian, especially their banter. LOL Jen is the queen of writing great banter. LOL I also appreciated that it wasn't insta-love too. That is one of my  biggest pet peeves. There were a bunch of times where I swooned and laughed. LOL Lucian is special like that. LOL 

I also loved the fact that I couldn't figure out "who did it." I had my suspicions, but wasn't convinced. So kudos for keeping me guessing until the very end! LOL

Please don't feel discouraged because of my review. Not everyone has the same taste in books, so even though I didn't love Moonlight Sins, that doesn't mean you won't either. Give it a chance and let me know what you thought! 

Happy Reading!

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Non-Romance Books with the Best Romances

Top Ten Tuesdays (TTT) is a weekly event now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's TTT is: Love Freebie (Romances, swoons, OTPs, kisses, sexy scenes, etc.)
There are so many fun topics to do with this freebie, but I started to think about some of my recent favorites romances that they were occurring in books that you wouldn't first think about when you're looking for a great romance.  So I started listing them and easily found ten to complete my list. Here are my 

Top Ten Non-Romance Books with the Best Romances



In the Fantasy genre

Daughter of the Forest  (Sevenwaters, #1)  The Winner's Curse (The Winner's Trilogy, #1)  A Darker Shade of Magic (Shades of Magic, #1)  The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, #1)

The Sevenwaters trilogy by Juliet Marillier - I have yet to finish this trilogy, but the first two book have had such emotional romances that have the best slow burns. 

The Winner's Trilogy by Marie Rutkoski - This has one of my very favorite otps. The romance is forbidden, and also has a little bit of a star-crossed-lover-kind-of feel to it. 

Shades of Magic by V.E. Schwab - There are so many ships I ship in this series. Victoria Schwab knows how to write a slow burn romance so well. 

The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater - I found myself shipping couples in here so hard in the best way. These ships do have a little angst which I enjoy on occasion. 


In the Historical Fiction genre

Mistress of Rome (The Empress of Rome, #1)

The Empress of Rome series by Kate Quinn - I have been devouring this series so far this year and I'm loving the way that Kate Quinn does romance. I have so many ships and I'm completely invested in them, so much so that I found myself trying to sneak a peek ahead in the forthcoming pages. 


In the Young Adult Contemporary genre

When Dimple Met Rishi  P.S. I Like You  Alex, Approximately

When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon - This book has one of the funniest meet-cute moments. I loved seeing Rishi and Dimple's relationship go along the way. 

P.S. I Like You by Kasie West - This book has one of the cutest romances I have ever read. I soaked up every part of this book.

Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett - I found myself totally enthralled in what Bailey and Porter had going on and what was going to happen. This book has made me want to read anything Jenn Bennett writes. 


In the Adult Fiction genre

The Hating Game  Swear on This Life

The Hating Game by Sally Thorne - This book! It reminded me of the best of Sophie Kinsella. The romance was hate-to-love and I loved every minute of it. 

Swear on This Life by Renee Carlino - This book was a romance unlike any I have read before. It blew me away and also, similar to Jenn Bennett, made me want to devour all of Carlino's books.
