Publication Date: December 12, 2012
You thought you could take him from me, but you lost. Now, that he's mine I'll do anything to keep him. Do you doubt me? I have everything that was supposed to be yours. In case you were wondering; he doesn't ever think about you anymore. I won't let him go....ever.
Leah Smith finally has everything she has ever wanted. Except she doesn't. Her marriage feels more like a loan than a lifelong commitment, and the image she has worked so hard to build is fraying before her eyes. With a new role and a past full of secrets, Leah must decide how far she is willing to go to keep what she has stolen.
It’s official. I am in love with Tarryn Fisher. Okay, technically I’m in love with her writing, but you know how it goes. I read The Opportunist not too long ago and loved it like you wouldn’t believe! To be honest, though, I had so many mixed emotions about reading Dirty Red – I felt both eager and hesitant.
I mean, this is Leah’s story! We’re supposed to hate her, right? I admit, I did dislike her in The Opportunist, but you know what? I didn’t in Dirty Red. In fact, I even like her now. Oh, don’t get me wrong, she can behave pretty badly. But I understood how she got to be that way, and could sympathize with her. Plus, some of the stuff she said and thought was damn funny!
Tarryn writes truly complex characters, and I effing love it! You love them, then hate them; hate to love them and love to hate them. No matter what though, there’s no denying how great they are. They’re real.
Dirty Red was another wonderful ride on the emotional roller coaster. It didn’t have as many loops as The Opportunists, but was still a-freaking-mazing!
Seriously, the Love Me With Lies trilogy is definitely a favorite of mine, and I haven’t even read the final book yet. Even though this book is from Leah’s perspective, it takes place after The Opportunists and continues the story of Oliva, Leah, and Caleb. So read them in order!
