Ellie Watt could only think of revenge.
She was set to hurt the man that hurted her so many years ago. Death wasn't enough for him, he needed to feel everything she felt every day unloveable and damaged.
To put her plans on the right track, she needed to get close to one of his men. She needed to seduce him, to con him. She now needed to find her mark and became someone else.She was now Eden and she found him, Javier...
But his pose, the way he held himself, reminded me of a lion on his down time, relishing his relaxation, knowing he still ruled the land.
She couldn't deny her immediately attraction to him, the connection that made her feel bared to him.
" Do you believe in fate, Eden?"
On Every Street it's Ellie and Javier story... and I got to say I wasn't prepared for the intensity and the range of emotions that I felt while reading it.
I think it's says a lot of how good an author is, if she makes us love and root for the bad guy. I was being seduced along side with Ellie. Javier sure is a smooth and captivating bastard.
It's like we're attracted to him like a moth to a flame.
And we know he is BAD, like BAD BAD. A psycho, a killer without conscience . But the way he is with Ellie made me question everything. How can he be so caring and then ruthless? How is it possible to love a killer?
The thing is, nothing is black and white...and this 2 are just lot's of grey.
He is passionate and caring and makes her feel loved.
" I have to make you surrender to me, to everything, in every way possible. I want your heart, your soul, and your body. I want the you that you're hiding deep inside. I must have her."
"Why am I good to you? he repeated, his lips brushing against mine as he spoke."Because I can see you are broken. And I want nothing more than to put you back together."
" I love you, more than I've ever loved anyone. More than I thought I was capable of. Eden, you've taken my heart by surprise from the day I first saw you. It hasn't been my heart since."
"You are all mine,even if you run. I will find you because a soul needs its other half to truly live."
They're just raw and primal. I could feel all the intensity and the chemistry between them. And let me tell, it was CRAZY HOT...like BURNING LAVA HOT.
And still,I knew what was coming and I was in denial.
"Any love that starts under a lie is bound to kill you. "
Oh Yeah, I'm a book masochist!!
Anyway, I felt this shed a new light on Ellie. It gave for me a new perspective on her actions in Sins&Needles and especially the sacrifice she made. I just got to like her even more and i want so badly to her get a HEA.
For the people that just couldn't stand Ellie in S&N (i still don't get you people) ,I dare you to read this one and try to get her and her actions.
Now, this story works also as a also a stand alone, you don't need to have read S&N to fully appreciate (and love) this story. But of course I recommend you to read it after this one, You're missing out an amazing book.
