I don't take much interest in books on mafia, drug lords, or con artists (unless they're non-fiction), but I decided to give this a shot after falling in love with EIT. And I'm probably the last of my bookie friends to read these so this series might be old news to you, but I'm happy to have because it was a really great ride.

Each character had such a horrible past, uniquely dejected and very heartbreaking. It was very much a struggle between good and bad, with a very thin line. So much crossing that line, my head would spin. Revenge was a character all in itself. Aside from the heroine, all other main characters in this series were perfect, perfect, perfect, to me. I loved both Javier & Camden. I just didn't take well to Ellie (the heroine), which was more of a personal problem. I held a tight grip on my ereader because she infuriated me. But what love triangle doesn't get under your skin? Really, they all do.

I'm a bit nostalgic already and I just finished it today. I'm feeling the need to stalk the author page and search for extras, outtakes/deleted scenes, etc. Karina Halle has been surprising me a lot lately. I'm finding that I really like her style and her characters are refreshing to read about. They're so flawed but so perfect. She's quickly becoming one of my favorite authors.
