She left me in a cloud of dust, a swirl of crushed cherry blossoms that choked my heart.
Shooting scars by Karina Halle (The Artists Trilogy #2) is an intense experience right from the start:
Camden is dealing with the outcome of Ellie's decision: his son and ex-wife reappearance and the possibility of a new beginning with them, combined with the heartbreak left by Ellie's departure. He's struggling with the emotional turmoil that all these events caused in him and trying not to loose himself in the process
My temper, my anger, my old friend rage – I wanted to finally kick it to the curb. I wanted to own it, destroy it. Wasn't that what second chances were about?
Ellie is never far from his thoughts...
What about Ellie? What happened to her?
Ellie's past has finally caught up with her and as expected she's trapped and at Javier's mercy. Meanwhile, Ellie and Javier embark on a vengeful mission that leads them to 'psycho-zorro' homecountry,a paradise to some but a nightmare to many ...but they are not the only ones going south, because a turn of events leads Camden to Gus and they 'hit the road' on a mission to save Ellie....
All I knew is what I felt. And that the woman that I loved, that I always loved, had sacrificed herself for me. There was no getting past that. She’d embedded herself in my skin, like a tattoo I could never give myself.
Throughout this journey, Ellie is fighting an internal battle and experiencing conflicting feelings that are fueled by Javier mind-games...
"What Javier and I shared was a deadly cocktail of intense hormones and lies. True love doesn't have a sick desperation to it, an undercurrent of doom."
What more can I say... absence makes the heart grow fonder but the following is also true...
And that's all. No more spoilers here, for those haven't read this amazing sequel yet, but I have to say that after Sins and Needles, the brilliant introduction to these intriguing and complex characters and to their twisted, exciting and unique story, this second installment of The Artists Trilogy is all you can ask for and more: Intense, Emotional, dark, thrilling, suspenseful, action packed,passionate, sexy, bittersweet, full of twists and turns and completely unpredictable.
I love everything about this series, it's one of my favorites and truly one of a kind.
This is adrenaline-fueled entertainment, I'm addicted to it and can't wait for more.
She was mine. And I was hers. Until the bitter end.
TEAM CAMDEN! Is it October 15 yet?
