Was I obsessed with these characters? Not particularly.
Was I obsessed with the romance or who will she choose? Not particularly.
Was I obsessed with the story? YES.
This series as a whole is completely compelling, and I have no idea why.
If asked about the characters separately I would say meh, but holy hannah put them all together and what a blender full of betrayal and drama. I feel like that doge meme. So wow. Much drama. Lies. Mentally I processed these things but never felt a lot of emotion behind them.
Can't explain it but I devoured this series and yet I still feel very ambivalent about it.
Anyway, read it in order and don't even think about just dipping your toe in, you must read all the books to get to the end of the cliffhangers.
And yes, I will be reading the authors "Dirty Angels" series. I read the synopsis of all the books and of course Halle is using characters that were in this series. So of course I must read and find out what happens to them. I really feel like Halle will improve.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Karina Halle simply blows my mind with her writing!!I could not put the book down!!
I absolutely loved On Every Street.It sucked me in completely!
This is the story of how young Ellie goes back to Mississippi for revenge, but falls in love instead. Before heading to her revenge mission, she goes to Gus first.He's an ex-LAPD and a family friend and he trains her in becoming a good con artist.
He teaches her everything he knows. You can tell that he loves her like his own daughter.
I loved that Ellie had a father figure she could always count on apart from Uncle Jim. Gus gave her the best advises and I loved the scenes where she would turn to him.
After her training with Gus, young Ellie sets out to con in the real world.
She's very inexperienced and young, but vengeance is a great motivator. To take revenge, she decides to seduce a man who can get her close to the person she's after and this quy is Javier..
Javier and Ellie have this insta-lust/insta-love thing going on. Javier immediately feels possessive over Ellie and claims her as his woman the second time they go on a date.
At first I like Javier a lot...he was sexy and very nice...but in the middle of the book I find him obsessed and I think he is psycho... I didnt like him...
