On Every Street
by
Karina Halle
Blurb:
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.

This 50K word (100+ pages) novella takes place six years before Sins & Needles. It can be read before or after Sins & Needles and may also be read as a standalone

My Review
Wow, Ms. Halle never fails to impress. This story is no exception. She is the master of emotional shake ups, which twist your mind until the reader does not know whether to scream, riot or bawl their bloody eyes out.

She wasn’t kidding about this being a hard book to write; it feels equally earth shattering to read.

This is a prequel to her novel Sins & Needles, giving us the what, where, how, when and why of Ellie Watts and her ex-boyfriend Javier’s relationship prior to that novel. For all the Javier haters, On Every Street may change your perspective on the Latin hunk.

With writing that cuts one to the bone, we follow Ellie on her endless quest for revenge for what she claims ‘ruined’ her at a young age. Changing her name to Eden White and hoping to slip into the inner circle of a notorious mobster named Travis, in a quest for absolution, she finds her target. Javier is the slick, confident and deadly henchman of Travis and is everything Ellie needs to get one step closer to getting justice. Except the relationship she starts with Javier, turns into something unexpected. Will vengeance be worth the wait, or will the beast devour her one chance for something real? Sometimes what a person wants isn’t what they need.

Thrilling! An absolutely riveting tale spun with bone crushing madness and steamy sexiness. I can’t wait for book 2 of this series Shooting Scars. Ms. Halle is a storyteller worth every minute of your time. 

Not recommended for under 18 due to sexual situations and mature content.

Bio:


The daugh­ter of a Nor­we­gian Viking and a Finnish Moomin, Karina Halle grew up in Van­cou­ver, Canada with trolls and eter­nal dark­ness on the brain. This soon turned into a love of all things that go bump in the night and a rather sadis­tic appre­ci­a­tion for freak­ing peo­ple out. Like many of the flawed char­ac­ters she writes, Karina never knew where to find her­self and has dab­bled in act­ing, make-up artistry, film pro­duc­tion, screen­writ­ing, pho­tog­ra­phy, travel writ­ing and music jour­nal­ism. She even­tu­ally found her­self in the pages of the very nov­els she wrote (if only she had looked there to begin with).

Karina holds a screen­writ­ing degree from Van­cou­ver Film School and a Bach­e­lor of Jour­nal­ism from TRU. Her travel writ­ing, music reviews/interviews and pho­tog­ra­phy has appeared in pub­li­ca­tions such as Con­se­quence of Sound, Mxdwn and GoNo­mad Travel Guides. She cur­rently splits her time between her apart­ment in down­town Van­cou­ver and her sail­boat, where a book and a bot­tle of wine are always at hand.

Dark­house is her first novel and the first one in the Exper­i­ment in Ter­ror Series. Things only get bet­ter from here on in. She is also the author of The Artists Tril­ogy (Hatch­ette) and The Devil’s Metal.

Karina is rep­re­sented by Scott Wax­man of the Wax­man Leavell Lit­er­ary Agency
