Scars to Your Beautiful
Again, I find myself reading an author I am not familiar with. I actually enjoyed Karina Halle’s writing style and that is what made me want to continue this trilogy. I feel like I have to start out with – You MUST read Sins & Needles before you read this book. It’s not even a question. So please don’t try reading Shooting Scars without reading Sins & Needles first! Once again, this was a crazy ride and the characters are so much fun to read. Javier Bernal is bad! He’s so very bad, but I constantly find it impossible to hate him even thought I probably should. I understand that there is a book called On Every Street that I should have read and that is all about Javier and Ellie but I have yet to purchase it. Now let’s ignore my statement and go back to Javier, shall we? He is your sexy bad influence and it is so well received. Javier in my eyes plays the dark role of Ellie’s past that collides with her present head on. I found myself feeling like he always has his own agenda and then he does the unthinkable and I think oh maybe he has a heart. Ellie is my emotional roller coaster in this series. I go from being mad at her to feeling sorry for her because she is constantly a pawn in someone’s games and it is never anything good. Now to talk about Cam who I absolutely adored. I can’t say enough about him. I love him because he is real, he is crazy, he is intense, he is dark and he is genuine in his love, he’s a standup guy, and wears his heart on his sleeve. He was my swoon worthy character who has wicked skills with a needle. I will be continuing this series for sure.
