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.

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love tattoos so it was fun to read about a tattoo artist, the fact that he is schmexy and tattooed also helps! Sins & Needles tells us the story of Ellie Watt, a con artist/gypsy with a bad rep and a bad leg and Camden McQueen, awkward goth teen turned gorgeous tattoo artist. Ellie and Camden were two lost souls in high school that had bonded and formed a unique friendship. When peer pressure became more important than that friendship the two parted on bad terms, humiliating each other in more ways than one.
Years later, Ellie is on the run. She is hiding from her past and trying to start over again, hopefully with a clean slate.
