5 Stars!!

Holy sh*t!! What a wild ride this book turned out to be! 'Dirty Souls' is simply amazing! AMAZING!! And, for sure, the favorite book I’ve read by this author so far. It’s dark, raw, gritty and, most of all, intense and twisted. This second installment held me at the edge of my seat the entire f@cking time and I loved…LOVED every minute of it. It’s filled with heart pounding, nail biting, and anxiety inducing moments as well as action, suspense, steam and remarkable well done WTF

'Black Hearts' left off with a rather ominous vibe that honestly, left me giddy. (I know, I know. I'm kind of messed up like that.) While Violet and Vicente were getting settled in and playing house, Javier was moving in on his son and his new lover. You just knew that whatever was going to happen wasn't going to be good for the young lovers...and I couldn't wait!

In case I haven't said it enough, let me just be clear that Javier Bernal is one of my all-time favorite anti-heroes. He has owned a

I love her with my dark and dangerous heart. I love her with my wicked and dirty soul. I love her enough to raze the world around me to the very ground, just so we can be together. But I know that love, real love, lives on truth. I have to be honest with her. I have to tell her how I found her. I have to tell her who Javier Bernal is to her family.

Why can't I love this book as much as all my GR friends????

I so wanted to love Dirty Souls, the 2nd book in Karina Halle's Sin's Duet.
I so wanted for this book to be the "turnaround" for me after I read the 1st book, Black Hearts - which I so so not l0ved, make that, not even liked remotely!!!
I've said it before - I absolutely loved The Artists Trilogy and the first 2 books in the Dirty Angels how could I go wrong with the conclusion
3 Stars

I'm tired and not in a reviewing mood tonight…

But I will say it took me longer to finish this book than I had expected. That is probably because I'm not in the dark phase at the moment. I liked it but not as much as the first book. I wish it was more focused on Violet and Vincente and less on their parents. Still very enjoyable though.

***First off, Dirty Souls is a continuation to Black Hearts so you must read that book first!!!! Otherwise you can read this duet on its own without reading anything before it!!***

I’m not usually a fan of dark romance, but Karina Halle has me hooked!

Dirty Souls is the continuation of Vicente and Violet's forbidden love affair, and HOLY SHIT, what a ride!!

The first 40% or so was great, we got to join them on their journey to Palm Valley to escape their parents, Violet is still trying to come to terms with the secrets that have been kept from her all her life, and Vicente has no choice but to help the woman he has fallen madly in love with to find some answers about her past.

I had a hard time rating this one. Part of me was so mad through out this story, that at times I wondered if I wanted to finish it...of course...I HAD to finish though!!! Then I decided it at least deserves four stars because the author got me to FEEL...and feel very passionate about what was happening during the story, that it didn't deserve to be knocked down in the rating because of my opinions!!!

Dirty Souls is the continuation of Black Hearts so if you plan to read this duet you might get tipped off in this review on where the story leads readers too.

“She’s our daughter! She’s with his son. How the fuck is any of this going to be okay?”

Let's do a little catch up from the previous book. The son of Javier, Vicente, and the daughter of his former lover (Ellie), Violet are in love and looking towards their future together. Javier, on the other hand, wants revenge on

"This isn't just young love. This is mad love. The kind that's incurable."


"Once upon a time, a sensitive young soul fell in love with a man she shouldn’t have. Where she was soft edges and feathers and dappled light through green leaves, he was hard lines and knives and dirty smoke rising from the ground."

2.75-3 stars

I'm in a minority here so please don't throw rotten tomatoes at me. I really wanted to love this duology, in fact i was so excited to read it because i looove the artist trilogy and dirty angels trilogy but, it turned out to be a disappointment for me.

I was not invested with the main h/h at all because the story was too focus on the parents. I do not care about violet and vicente because I am too busy lamenting over the fact that my idea of the original four's happy lives was wrong.

Vicente Bernal thought he had it all figured out when he set out on a quest to find out about his father's past. He had never expected for his priority to changed dramatically and led him to a more dangerous path.

Violet McQueen realizes her life is full of secrets and lies. Her parents have kept a lot of their past from her growing up. She needs a break from her family, so she leaves San Francisco, & runs off with her boyfriend Vicente Bernal to her parents hometown of Palm Valley, California. She hopes they can uncover some answers. She feels safe with Vicente. Even though she now knows he's the son of a drug lord, he's still the only person she trusts right now. She's falling for Vicente

In Dirty Souls, the timeline continues without interruption and it is a wild ride from the first page. As Vicente Bernal and Violet McQueen flee to get answers about the past, there are factions that have different motivations and they will stop at nothing to achieve their end game. During their journey, the truth slowly unfolds but lines remain blurred until the very end.

“I have changed too much. I wonder if this is something I’ll ever be able to wash from my skin.”

Dirty Souls is the second installment in Karina Halle's dark romance duology: Sins Duet. The first installment: Black Hearts ended on a "to be continued" and this one picks up right where the first one leaves off. This continuation is definitely deserving of its own book though...Ms. Halle wasn't just out to make a few extra bucks by splitting up the story. Dirty Souls takes the main characters from the setting of Violet's sheltered life in San Francisco and throws them head first into Javier's ...more

"I love her with my dark and dangerous heart. I love her with my wicked and dirty soul."

Dirty Souls is the conclusion to Vicente and Violet's forbidden love story. I was really looking forward to this book because things were about to go down. I didn't know what to expect and was pretty much ready for anything to happen. In dark romances you have to be open-minded and understand why some characters are the way they are and do the things they do.
The conclusion of Sins Duet is here and OMG it's pretty good!

“This is us. This is the edge of danger. This is a love that has changed everything for everyone.”

After all that happened in the first part we all waited for the finale and how the hell is going to go. I send you back to my review of Black Hearts because I wrote quite a lot about the story and the characters there. And there is no way to go without this and spoilers are not my thing.

What I can tell you is that the second part

When we closed the book on Ellie Watt, Camden McQueen and Javier Bernal so long ago, we left old wounds to fester, old secrets to slither, old lies to lay in wait. And as with anything suppressed for so long, the eruption of the truth was sure to be explosive. Still, I had no idea what Karina Halle had in store in this duet. This duet is the release of that darkness, the boiling over of old deceit and heartbreak bringing forth a new kind of devastation. Dirty Souls is a lifetime of cons and ...more

An awesome ending to this fabulous duet! This was one wild ride that tossed me around, had me white knuckled, holding my breath!

My emotions were all over the place with this second book as my thoughts and feelings for some characters went from love to hate, acceptance to pure denial. And the story was intense. So intense as the culmination of the past, present and future collide.

And Vicente and Violet are great characters. I love how both of them have light and dark within them, and we get to

After the slightly disappointing first book in the Sins Duet, I was hoping that Dirty Souls would make up for what I didn’t feel in Black Hearts by actually making me grow invested in Vicente and Violet’s star-crossed romance. It didn’t, BUT I will say it was a hell of a conclusion to the McQueens’ and Bernals’ story. It’s nonstop action and insanely hot, filthy sex. It’s a no-holds-barred kind of read, which I admired. If you loved Black Hearts, you will

Karina Halle

This is the last installment of the Black Hearts Duet.
The story continues where Vicente and Violet ran in to sunset and the quest for the truth begun. Violet has a lot of questions and the answers are just within reach and Vicente will help her get all of it. If it helps Vicente is also intrigued as hell.
Starting when she found out of the real story between her father and her mother. When she finally found out that Ben was her half brother and her mom was Javier's ex.

Karina knows how to write a good dark romance.
Dirty Souls classifies as a romantic suspense, it is a second book in a duet, told from multiple POV's.
You have to read Black Hearts first to fully enjoy this.

In Dirty Souls we continue following Vicente's and Violet's forbidden love, and trust me, it was one hell of a ride.
Karina's writing can keep me awake all night long, and that is something that I am used to.
Apart from creating these amazing sexy alpha males,
