Shooting Scars by Karina Halle ~ Review


Sometimes the right choice can be the deadliest.

When Ellie Watt made the ultimate sacrifice for Camden McQueen, she never thought it would be easy. But walking away with her ex-lover, Javier Bernal, in order to ensure Camden’s safety has brought a whole new set of dangers. With Javier’s plans for Ellie growing more secretive by the moment, Ellie must find a way to stay ahead of the game before her past swallows her whole.

Meanwhile, Camden’s new life is short-lived. Fueled by revenge and pursued by authorities, he teams up with an unlikely partner in order to save Ellie. But as Camden toes the line between love and retribution, he realizes that in order to get back the woman he loves, he may have to lose himself in the process. He might just turn into the very man he’s hunting.

Told in dual POV from Camden and Ellie.


Holy Mother Of It All! I think I just switched teams!! Ahhh.....Javier, This girl has always been Team Javier but really? WTF is going on in your head dude? I just couldn't wrap my head around all the craziness that was spilling out of his mouth. Camden on the other hand...he shines in this book, he's so sweet and proves his undying devotion to Ellie even when she manages to let him down! 4 stars!

“Even at her worst, she made me want to be a better man. To be good enough for the both of us.”

Shooting Scars picks up right where we left off in Sins & Needles. Ellie is in the backseat of a car with Javier and she has no idea what Javier has in store for her.  Ellie thought she was doing the right thing, she sacrificed herself to ensure that Camden and his family were safe and she thought she was giving them their second chance at happiness.  All Ellie really did is leave Camden in the hands of a his ex-wife who is a she-devil. She immediately betrays Camden and Camden is on the run again, but this time he is running to save Ellie. Camden turns to the only person Ellie trusts and that's Gus, to help him in this new criminal world that he is not quite sure of.  So Camden and Gus set out to get Camden's girl back and the journey leads them to Mexico where Javier has Ellie.  And shit goes down from here.....a ton of questions are answered, secrets are revealed, and we are left hanging on the end of our seat until the very end and the next book!

“I'd be there no matter what she chose, even if she wanted another lover, another life, I would still be there when she fell. When she wanted to run. When she wanted to come home.”

I love this series! It is angst filled, heartbreaking, sexy, secretive, and crazy.....totally messes with your mind, and those are the best kind of books! I can't wait for the final installment Bold Tricks! Hmmm...Team Javier...Team Camden...who's gonna get the girl? I can't wait to see!
