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

Sins & Needles (The Artists Trilogy, #1)Sins & Needles by Karina Halle
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3.5 I’m not bad Stars

I ended up changing my original 4 stars to 3.5. and here in the reasons why:

Ellie is a con artist. When I think of a con artist, I want the heroine to be like Catherine Zeta-Jones in
Entrapment
. I want her to be so kick-ass and awesome I am absolutely in awe of her. I want them to know how to fight, drop from the sky with impressive gear, and I want the outcome to be more then a free meal, a couple hundred bucks from strangers wallets or a sentimental car. Ellie did not do that for me. She dates guys, and then takes their money – Where is the honor in that???

“Spite was the fuel to right all your wrongs. And like any fuel, it could consume you.” Ellie allowed a hatred for someone fuel all of her actions and we were taken along on the ride. It was not a boring ride by any means it was just different. The beginning sucked me in, and then stayed stagnant throughout the book.

Camden was another piece I was confused on. They were best friends…friendemeies? …. In middle school…enemies in high school? All of a sudden they meet up and he has a plan to use her and her him. In the end (view spoiler). How much money was in that safe? Enough for Javier to pay it back? Whaat?

I did like Ellie’s quirky attitude and random thoughts “If it was a bomb, I was going to be upset”. . I did not connect with her, but then again maybe that was the authors point all along. She is stuck pretending to be someone else all the time, maybe she doesn’t even know who she is.

Ellie pretty much went through the ringer throughout this book. She went through things that were pretty fucked up. Good-ole Uncle Jim – Seriously?? I am thinking book .5 may shine some light on all things Ellie Watt, but she needs to step up her game!
