Review Sin and Needles by Karina Halle (The Artist Trilogy book 1)

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 & Thoughts 
Cover: Gorgeous! If the cover is not enough to peek the readers interest the name of the book and blurb must! But it's more than the blurb!
Genre: Adult (18+)
Romance: Hence the warning above in blurb! Ha (It's not erotic) 

Warning: As stated above in the blurb this is an adult read and this whole series touches on points that some readers may not agree with.

"I'm not bad.The world is bad and I'm just trying to survive in it." 
Ellie is on the run hiding from her past that includes a very dangerous drug lord, Javier. Looking to start her life over, she runs into an old 'friend' Camden sparking up to new feelings. She needs money to start her new life and goes to her Uncle Jim for help. No help there, Ellie must result to her old ways of tricks and scamming. Trying to make ways, Ellie comes across a wanted sign of herself with a bounty and to contact Javier. Her past is not to far behind from where she is.

Ellie has more than one demon in her closet hunting her. She knows nothing but being a scam artist and learned from an early age of pre-teen by her parents.

Camden...he was not a favorite of mines BUT he is for many others! I just choose to go for the crazy man chasing!

This book, Sin & Needles is all about Ellie and Camden. Their back story, flash backs of Ellie's life with Javier and with her parents.

Javier! He makes his quick debut in this book but just wait or better yet read On Every Street - Amazon right now! (Soooo much more to come of Javier in the following books in the series)  I know! Fans of the series are probably thinking, what do you mean Javier! But they're might be some out there that agree with my feisty side that likes a bit of danger! Haa...maybe?...maybe not?

An indie book, it was an Amazing read! Karina knows how to write her male POV well and not getting lost in creating many characters with each a different spunk of personality. Alpha male lovers, go ahead and one click away! :)

Huge Cliffhanger
Highly Recommended!
It's a series of four SEXY books!

I glared at him. "Is the gun really necessary?"

"No," he admitted. "It's just fun to have one."

"Like an extra penis," I mused.

He smiled unkindly. "Something like that."
