Book Review: Sins & Needles

Sins & Needles (The Artists Trilogy #1) by Karina Halle: 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).

Lori's thoughts: My tastes have changed lately. No more bad boy falls for the shrinking violet-type girl. Or vice-versa. I like a book with a story and some grit. And Karina Halle does not disappoint. This book is amazing. It's been on my Kindle for awhile, and I'm finally getting around to reading it after reading and falling in love with Love, in English. I'm currently reading book 2 in this trilogy. The painful, torturous love between these two broken characters is amazingly well written and believable. I don't know what else to say about this book, besides, it's a page turner and I loved it!
