REVIEW: Sins & Needles by Karina Halle

Sins & Needles (The Artists Trilogy, #1)
Book Description:

Ellie Watt is used to starting over. The daughter of a grifting team, Ellie spent her childhood being used as a pawn in her parents' latest scam. Now she’s much older, wiser and ready to give her con artist life a rest. But returning to the dry desert town of Palm Valley, California means one more temptation than she bargained for – Camden McQueen. Once known as the high school weirdo, Camden is bigger and badder than the boy he used to be and a talented tattoo artist with his own thriving business. Ellie’s counting on Camden still being in love with her but what she’s not counting on is how easily unrequited love can turn into obsession over time. When Camden discovers Ellie’s plan to con him, he makes her a deal she doesn’t dare refuse, but her freedom comes with a price and it’s one that takes both Ellie and Camden down a dangerous road.

***The Artists Trilogy is a dark and sexy contemporary ride about three flawed individuals caught in a world where it's so easy to justify the bad things we do. This is a pure adult read (Not YA or NA).

My Review
OMG!! Where the hell is book 2? Karina I need it Now!!
what a fucking cliffhanger that was!!
Post freakout...

"Everyone we meet, everything we do, it changes us. It makes us who we are. And, if we’re lucky, we’re given the chance to make things right again.”

Ellie is done with grifting. After her last stint she is ready to go legit. So she goes home. Back to where she is just plain ole Ellie Watt. But when she meets Camden McQueen she remembers the life left behind. And when temptation is too much she sets up a con on the one man that was once her best friend.

Camden remembers Ellie quite well. He remembers her sadness, her pains, her scars, her beauty but most of all her betrayal. When she walks back into his life he sets up his own revenge. He will capture your heart and never let go. He will show you his sweetness, loving heart, sadness and his own scars. And he is lovely all the same.

What ensues between these two is a love/hate relationship. One where old wounds are reopened, feelings are hurt, cruel words are spoken and hearts will break. A journey in which deep scars finally begin to heal for these two. Through their sins and needles the two find their middle ground.

"I wish he’d made his mark everywhere. I wished everyone could see how much he’d imprinted himself on my heart."

Sins & Needles is dark, intense, passionate and REAL. It starts off slowly. Showing us the past and present, but will quickly turn into an action packed read. Emotions will run high and an explosive cliffhanger will have you anxiously awaiting book 2.

Buy it. Read it. Love it.
Happy Reading!
