And I thin numerou people have used that image in their reviews but, come on, do you really ever get tired of looking at that? This book took as a complete shock to me.
But his ook is all thes things becaus, minus a ton of disgusting control-freakery, sexism and general stupidity from the " protagonis ", minus extremely bad writing, plus some well-rounded characterization that goes beyond " my mummy abused me so now I like to beat you, WAAAAAH! " Sins& Needles has the flirty fun to make you giggle, it has some darkness and danger to keep your eyes glued to the page ( I stayed up until 5am and was literally on the verge of passing out) and it has some DAMN HAWT sex scenes.Though I 'm no writer myself, I imagine it can be ery eas to prov that perfect balance with a love interest.
Camden is a haracter with a well-woven story that compiles elements of the nerdy outsider he was in high school and the trong, good-looking man he is ow to create a very interesting package.
He is flawed and does n't actuall do the right thing but you ca n't help but love him all the same.The main story is quit dark in many ways but I kind of wishe I 'd written this review before reading the equally good short prequel- On Every Street- because this changes your perspective on quite a few way.
I love authors that do that, give you anothe idea and let you kno you know what 's going on but then turn it on its head, introduce some new information and completely change the rules of the game.
Camden McQueen remembers her all too ell and with him comes memories that Ellie has been rying to forget.The other thing about contemporary romances that make them not a avourite of mine is the formula that all of them eem to follow.
Eve its the exciting mafia subplot that makes novel so different, turning Ellie and Camden into a sens of Bonnie and Clyde duo.On the subject of not entirely likeable characters, I 've read where some people say they do n't like Ellie and I wil see why.
She 's done many things I hate but she remind herself for them equally and I just love the complexity of her haracter.
Jus you think I 'm scare, but there 's neve been something about love stories with bad people that has totally pulled me in.
( hide spoiler) ]* happy sigh* Sins& Needles is n't completely without flaws, but it is one of he most well-written indie books out there.
