As I sit here and contemplate Sins and Needles I’m trying to figure out where to start. All the reviews I read were AMAZING! AWESOME! So, I picked up the book and was expecting……something more. I try not read books while they’re being so hyped up because I’m afraid I’ll be expecting more. I think that’s what happened for me here with Sins and Needles.
Don’t get me wrong. It’s a good book. It’s just not AMAZING or AWESOME.
I was intrigued with Ellie and the life she led. She’s certainly no princess or an innocent. But she’s definitely likable. I ended up in a conundrum with her. She’s a grafter. A con. She steals for a living and spends most of her life on the run. Of course that’s all she knows. That’s what her parents taught her. However, she knows it’s wrong but she still does it. She says she wants to go legit and start over. But when things get rough, she goes right back to grifting.
Camden is intriguing in his own way. He was a loner in High School. He used to be friends with Ellie until she humiliated him. Now they’re back together and Camden is hot! Hot! Hot! He’s tattooed and pierced and a complete bad boy!
Camden and Ellie are quite the pair.
I enjoyed this story, but I wasn’t enthralled with it. I’ll definitely read the other two in the trilogy because I have to know what happens.
