Sigh. Finally a book about a bad girl instead of a bad boy. Don’t get me wrong bad boys are my favorites but this was another nice change of pace.
Ellie, Eden, whatever in the hell her name was was a con artist, scammer, and bad, bad, girl. After a scam gone wrong she finds herself back home. Well at least what was her home for a while in high school. Camden McQueen was such a geek in high school but he was her only friend for most of it – and double damn look at him now all geekyness is gone. Ride along with Ellie and Camden as they deal with one hair raising experience after another.
I obviously enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it. A few holy shit moments in there – it was great. So fun in fact that I’m eagerly waiting for the next book in the series which comes out in May 2013. There is a prequel out now.
Ellie Watt is used to starting over. The daughter of a grifting team, Ellie spent her childhood being used as a pawn in her parents’ latest scam. Now she’s much older, wiser and ready to give her con artist life a rest. But returning to the dry desert town of Palm Valley, California means one more temptation than she bargained for – Camden McQueen. Once known as the high school weirdo, Camden is bigger and badder than the boy he used to be and a talented tattoo artist with his own thriving business. Ellie’s counting on Camden still being in love with her but what she’s not counting on is how easily unrequited love can turn into obsession over time. When Camden discovers Ellie’s plan to con him, he makes her a deal she doesn’t dare refuse, but her freedom comes with a price and it’s one that takes both Ellie and Camden down a dangerous road.
