$4.99 on Amazon!
(If you haven’t read the Opportunist or Dirty Red – DO NOT read any further – contains spoilers)
Well we’ve come to the conclusion of Caleb and Olivia’s story, and all I can say is – WOW. I’m a little sad that it’s over, but Tarryn Fisher finished it so we weren’t left wanting…. (well maybe a little, but in a good way.) Caleb and Olivia have been so back and forth throughout all three books you sometimes don’t know which end is up with these two. There is constant lies from both of them, sometimes I found myself getting lost in the lies and trying to figure out the truth. Then you throw Leah into the picture and all hell breaks loose. As if Caleb and Olivia didn’t have enough issues of their own trying to be together, with her daddy issues – and his, I’m not even sure what his REAL issue was other than Olivia herself, and the fact she could never tell him she loves him, or ever be truly intimate with him until it was too late.
He tries for a second chance – it’s thwarted by Leah –
She tries for a second chance – it’s thwarted by the same red headed bitch.
It’s easy to blame Leah, even after reading her side of the story, you can see why she is the way she is, but that doesn’t mean we have to understand, or feel sorry for her. I still can’t stand her as a human being. Tarryn wrote one of the best villains I’ve read in a LONG time. I truly despised this woman as if she were real. But when Olivia finally gets her shit together after everything that’s happened, something always has to come up and ruin it for her. Maybe she’s just that self-destructive, I’m sure it’s a culmination of both her and Caleb, but I feel for the girl. I don’t pity her per-say, because a lot of the issues she has, she brings them on herself. If these two had just been honest with each other then they would have had their happily ever after ages ago, but then it wouldn’t be a very interesting story now would it? I found myself tearing up when they’d each find the kissing penny – because we all have those moments when we find an odd old nostalgic keep sake whether from an old lover, or friend that we’ve kept to cling to the happy memory.
Caleb is kind of a shit – and in this book, told through his perspective, you really get the story behind all that’s happened. All the assumptions Olivia and Leah both made about him and about his actions. You find out how truly screwed up this guy is, and how it nearly makes him perfect for Olivia. He can forgive all her lies and secrets, because he has them too – and as they slowly start telling the truth to each other they start to heal …. there’s only one problem though, Olivia has Noah.
There is ALWAYS something in the way with these two – not that it stops either of them from pursing the other. Temptation is foreplay for them.
I haven’t gotten hooked on a series in a while – but Tarryn Fisher sucked me in and I REALLY enjoyed my time getting to know these characters – and the twisted lives they lead.
Caleb: “I want to have more cake batter fights and camping trips. I want your future, Olivia. Please come back to me.”
Caleb: “My heart is in my throat, my brain is in my pants, my hands are up her dress.”
Caleb: “Broken people give broken love. And we are all a little broken. You just have to forgive and sew up the wounds love delivers, and move on.”
Olivia: “The sum of all the things we shouldn’t have done in our lives is enough to kill us with the weight, Caleb Drake. Neither you, nor I, nor anyone else in this life could possibly know the chain reaction our decisions cause. If you’re to blame, then so am I.”
