  3. 4 1 2 starsSorry for using such a cheap trick to drag you in but this is the picture Halle used as inspiration for Camden And I know many people have used that image in their reviews but, come on, do you really ever get tired of looking at that This book came as a complete shock to me It s one of those where I have no idea why I read it, it must be some sort of masochistic curiosity that makes me pick up books I m almost certain I won t like For one thing, it s an indie novel and my luck with th [...]

  18. Revised 7 29 13 Spoiler Free This will be the last time I ve said that before I ve said it a lot I ve said it while talking to myself in a mirror, like some Tarantino clich This book did remind me of a Quentin Tarantino film with the use of music, satirical subject matter and damaged characters Uh huh good book, and would be a good movie And as Rebecca Espinosa stated in her review The situations they were placed in and the way the story unfurled, it reminded me of a movie, a really kick ass adv [...]

  20. Woah what a wild ride It was just such a different read It was quite refreshing to read something that you really can t compare to anything else.It was edgy and gritty, at times heart breaking and others steamy, along with a touch of snark I m finding this book hard to review despite really liking it because for most of the book you really don t know which end is up Usually when I write my reviews, there are some constants to base it off of but with this one the ground was constantly shifting be [...]

  28. 4.5 StarsTo be honest I was really hesitant about picking up this book, because I don t usually like con stories I hate people trying to cheat others out of their hard earned money, and take things the easy way There are of course exceptions to this for me The reason for the con is to defraud a defrauder, someone who deserves it in some way The con is to serve up some much deserved revenge I guess I m not a turn the other cheek sort of girl, well in fiction anyways If someone s got it coming I r [...]
