BOLD TRICKS by Karina Halle ~ Release Day Blitz and Giveaway
About BOLD TRICKS:
The Faster They Live, the Harder They Fall . . .
Raised by con artists, Ellie Watt has a lot of crazy childhood memories-but none crazier than being scarred with acid by the demented crime boss Travis Raines. Now Ellie is a full-grown woman who lives for revenge, and Travis is a full-blown drug lord who kills for pleasure. The sadistic bastard has kidnapped her good friend Gus as well as her mother, whom he's been holding as prized possessions in his heavily guarded lair. And Ellie has only one chance in hell of getting them out alive-using two dangerous men who love her to death . . . One is Camden McQueen, a talented tattoo artist who's made a permanent mark on Ellie's heart. The other is Javier Bernal, her fiery ex-lover who's busted more than a few heads in his time. From the crime-ridden streets of Mexico City to the predatory jungles of Honduras, this unlikely trio forms an uneasy alliance in the deadliest game of all-a gun-blazing battle to the finish that will pit enemy against enemy and lover against lover. And Ellie must choose the right man to trust . . . or die.
Feels like we have been waiting forever for this....finally, the final installment of the Artists Trilogy. I personally was not disappointed, Karina left us with an action-packed, jaw-dropping conclusion to the trilogy. Were there things I would have liked to see happen differently and have a little more resolution on? YES, but overall this is a great wrap up to Ellie, Camden, Gus, and Javier’s story…these characters are in no way innocent and I love how they found their way in this book and their true-self is revealed. 4 stars
“I fucking need you and I need you to forgive me. I need that more than anything in the world! I need you to make me good”
Bold Tricks starts off exactly where Shooting Scars left off and there is tons of adrenaline pumping action. Javier, Ellie, and Camden are on a mission, although their motivations may be completely different, they have to work together to achieve their end goal. Boundaries will be pushed, loyalties and love tested and when resolution is finally reached who will be left standing?
“My Ellie. My beautiful girl. I will burn for you. I will die for you.”
Loved this series! Sins and Needles and On Every Street were epic, and Shooting Scars and Bold Tricks were great! If you are looking for a series that is original, thrilling, dangerous, sexual, and explosive this one is for you!
