Leah is coming to grips with her life and screwed up choices and needs to grow up. Getting to that point is a long long haul for her, that still doesn't really happen here, but it's a helluva ride! The revelations and twists and turns abound of course that keep you screaming at your kindle for more like a crazy person. By the way I LOVED the humor in this book, so many bits dropped in book 1 come up here- Nancy Grace is Olivia's hero, here Leah despises her but watches her when Olivia's name comes up on her show then becomes a big fan...woohoo! And bravo Ms. Fisher, in the space of a page+ she makes a heartstopping reveal about Leah and Seth, Caleb's brother, where Seth comes off as very intriguing and I find myself rooting for these two!!! HOly cow! What's come over me?? This is not a typical romance read. This is the hell of Real Life in all its tough, random bitterness, it makes or breaks you, so will you finally fight for your truth or no!??!! OH! Pass me more Taryncrack and right the F now!!!!! Onto book 3!
"I was about a ten on the poison scale, If he needed venom, I could inject it directly into his neck."
And many of those questions were answered. I didn't think I would like hearing her POV because she just seemed too evil, but I did. She is definitely a messed up character with so much darkness in her. She's twisted and she will do about anything to get what she wants (but haven't we all done that). But does she even really want those things, or is it all just a facade she is trying to keep up? Still don't think I like her or the reasons for her lies. The one time I liked "seeing" her was with Sam the manny. He called her out, but he also seemed to push her out of her comfort zone and understand the darkness in her. Those 2 actually made some sort of sense. Caleb and her? I just don't get. And why would she force something when he repeatedly told her that he was still in love with Olivia. I wanted to scream at her and hit her myself. What could Caleb be thinking?
In the long run, this book and Leah's story needed to be told and to be included in Olivia and Caleb's story. Those 3 (and along with Noah) were a lifetime of love, hate and lies. She made it interesting, but yes, I still kind of hate her. Love to hate Leah.
"Love is illogical. You fall into it like a manhole. Then you're just stuck. You die in love more than you live in love."
I can't wait to see where these lies and love and manipulation will end with these people.
I read this book in less than 24 hours. I can’t even remember the last time I did that. Leah is so wonderfully, wickedly twisted that I just had to know what was going to happen next. It’s been a long time since I read The Opportunist, and I had trouble remembering what all happened in that book, so I really appreciated the flashbacks that were in this book to events that happened in TO. I really enjoyed the buildup of what happened in the past that led up to what was happening in the present.
Leah. I just had to shake my head at her during most of the book. There were times where I really felt sorry for her. She didn’t deserve the way her parents treated her at all. She was in love with a man that just couldn’t love her the way she loved him. That’s pretty sad. But on the other hand, she drove me absolutely crazy with some of the things she did and decisions she made. As a mother myself, I just couldn’t believe how indifferent she was about her daughter. It just blew my mind the way she would pass her off. Was she really suffering from postpartum depression? Was she just that indifferent about her child? I guess we’ll never know for sure. Leah was a whackadoodle, but she sure was interesting.
I enjoyed Sam’s character. He was funny and offered a little bit of a balance to Leah. For all the snark she threw his way, he gave it right back to her. I also love that he wasn’t afraid to call her out on her crap.
I’m really looking forward to reading Thief so I can see Caleb’s point of view through everything that happened. I’m sure to be in for another wild ride!
