On Every Street (The Artists Trilogy 0.5) by Karina Halle

Review by Willow 4 Stars (written 13.03.2013)

When young con artist Ellie Watt decides to call herself Eden White and go after the drug lord who ruined her as a child, she never expects to fall for one of his henchmen. But Javier Bernal is no ordinary man. Subtly dangerous and overwhelmingly seductive, Eden finds herself passionately in love with Javier, the very person she's set-up to betray. With her body and heart in a heated battle against her deep need for revenge, no one will walk away from this con a winner.

Ok so I went into this book hating Javier, having read sins and needles first I was already in love with Cam, and I ultimately knew how Javier and Eden ended up. I heard some of my GR friends had fallen for Javier, but I was determined not to. I did however see Javier in a different light. I warmed to him, he wasn't what I expected at all. I could see why some fell for him, but I just couldn't knowing what I knew.

It was great getting more of Ellie, why she fell for Javier and why she walked away from Travis. It was good seeing Javier through her eyes of love, but I really wanted to see through Javier's eyes, I really wanted to know why he did the things he did. I can only guess we will learn more as the series continues.

Karina's writing once again flows well and is easy to read. I loved this little book, I'm still team Camden, but I don't hate Javier quite as much.
