Olivia Kaspen has just discovered that her ex-boyfriend, Caleb Drake, has lost his memory. With an already lousy reputation for taking advantage of situations, Olivia must decide how far she is willing to go to get Caleb back. Wrestling to keep her true identity and their sordid past under wraps, Olivia’s greatest obstacle is Caleb’s wicked, new girlfriend; Leah Smith. It is a race to the finish as these two vipers engage in a vicious tug of war to possess a man who no longer remembers them. But, soon enough Olivia must face the consequences of her lies, and in the process discover that sometimes love falls short of redemption.

Every where I turned I saw reviews, fb posts, comments all about this book The Opportunist.  I’ve had the book on my tbr for months and months.  But for some reason I kept putting it off.  Until last night.  Yep I finally took the plunge.  And you guessed it…I couldn’t put t down.

My husband is going to be late to work mostly because I had to keep telling him things that were happening in the book.

Then I had to explain more and more so he could understand the full context.  Finally I gave up and told him to just read the damn thing!  The the tears started and now he keeps asking me if I’m ok. Ok???  Um hell no I’m not ok.  I’m emotionally strung out.  I have no idea how I feel but I do feel a lot of things.

GOD!  The lies….the turmoil…the angst….

I really wanted to dislike Olivia.  She was so rotten and I hated some of the things she did.  I was perfectly happy with her NOT getting what she wanted!  Who acts like that anyway?  I mean really?   Talk about self destruct.  I could however relate to her and I understood why she did some of those things.  Crazy for me to even admit that maybe we all have a little Olivia in us.  Hmmm…maybe ‘some’ of us have a little Olivia in us.

Then you have to address Caleb.  Ummm ok so not what I was expecting.  Although I was starting to question things early on.  I don’t want to give anything away but he was a little suspect.  Poor guy amnesia and all.  I wanted to love Caleb.  I guess a part of me does love Caleb.  But what a freaking mess he made of everything.

And then there’s Leah.  UGH!  I did not like this chick but I guess I wasn’t supposed to.  I really really hope she gets what she deserves!

I still feel a little shaky and I think some coffee is in order because yes I’m going to start reading the next book right away. I just hope my heart can take it.

Caleb, I love you. I changed my mind.  I really do love you.  You may be just as broken as Olivia, and I want you happy and I love you.

This book is like 3 mini tornadoes thrown together.  Everything gets shaken up a lot and where it all lands will have even your head spinning!

About Tarryn Fisher

I am a real life villain, truly. I drink sick amounts of Starbucks. Most of the time my hair smells like coffee. I was born in South Africa, and lived there for most of my childhood. I moved to Seattle just for the rain. Rome is my favorite place in the world so far, Paris comes in at a close second. I read and write more than I sleep. When I was eleven, I wrote an entire novel about runaway orphans, using only purple ink. I am addicted to Florence and the Machine and will travel to see concerts. I love scary movies and giraffes. I spend way too much time on Facebook. Meet you there?…
