Summary

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.

Loved this book about the woman we love to hate!

Oh Leah, the woman we love to hate. Let me count the ways.

"My name is Leah and I will do anything to keep my husband."

I know a lot of Olivia & Caleb fans are or were skeptical in reading this book. They either hated Leah so much they were afraid to understand her or start to like her, or they just hated her so much they didn't want to give her the time of day. But The Opportunist (TO) introduces us to three very flawed individuals who all made choices that changed the trajectory of the future. And all three - Caleb, Olivia, and Leah - walk that line between good and evil, hero and villain. Reading Leah's book was necessary. And as much as many of us would rather not understand her upbringing or thought process because it makes us hate her just a little less, it was worth the read.

"I knew he never loved me like he loved her, but I wanted him anyway. I knew his love for me was conditional, but I wanted him anyway. I knew I was second choice, but I wanted him anyway. But,this was too much."

I don't know if I would have been able to write Leah's story if I were in Tarryn Fisher's (TF) shoes. But everything TF writes is poetry and a life lesson wrapped up neatly in one little bow. Her ability to make readers like the most hateful of characters is magical. Thanks a lot, TF, for making me like this book.

DIRTY RED KEPT YOU ON YOUR TOES

Any additional comments?

Even better than the first! Would love to give this one more than 5 stars as well. It was great to read from the "other womans" point of view and see how she put all her scheming together when the main character Caleb was trying to get Olivia back. I was extremely emotionally invested in this book and didn't want it to end! I loved how in this book the author kept to the same formula and went between past and present backstories but kept to Leah's (Calebs wife) point of view this time. The book stayed very interesting and there were no dull moments. I cant wait to listen to The Thief!! The narrator on this audio is PERFECT! .. She was the real reason why this story grasped my attention.

Leah..Leah...Leah...smh...

Would you try another book from Tarryn Fisher and/or Luci Christian?

Absolutely! I've just recently discovered Tarryn and I'm a fan.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Leah was entertaining and just sooo ugly inside. She has some serious issues but I liked her and her insecurities.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

She was perfect.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes.

Dirty Red earns her name!! A Fantastic Listen!!

Wow! Just Wow! You will either love or hate this book. I personally LOVED it. Tarryn Fisher gives you a story from everyone’s point of view and in this installment of the Love Me With Lies trilogy we hear Dirty Red’s (Leah) Side. I definitely recommend reading book 1 in this Series first. The author does an excellent job recapping all the previous events but this time they’re told from a different point of view. This story is like nothing I’ve read before. This isn’t your typical romance with bells and whistles. This is a love triangle that spans over a decade and shows what each person involved has endured and given to have their happily ever after. Leah is complex and deceitful. She manipulates and lies to get what she wants but what you soon realize is this is a common trend amongst this love triangle. You will literally hate Leah and think the worst of her but as the story unfolds you find that there is more to her than meets the eye. Yes she’s selfish and downright vindictive but she longs for something she’s never felt. In the end each character is trying to find their happiness but at what cost? Tarryn Fisher will have you on the edge of your seat with this Perfectly crafted original. I listened to this on audio and it was my first time hearing Luci Christian perform and perform she does. She portrays Leah EXACTLY how I envisioned her and it’s FANTASTIC!!

Second book in series better written than the 1st!

Just when I thought that the first main character "Olivia" was completely unlikable and hard to root for, I get to meet Leah. Well Leah is worse than Olivia. Vain, insecure, devious, judgemental, silly, and probably even racist! This book unravels the same 3 main characters (Olivia, Caleb, Leah) a bit more. I was swept away with this book and this was a listen that flowed and was easier to follow because it wasn't all over the place like the first one. Very entertaining listen!

Fills in some holes, not as good as Opportunist

I really enjoyed The Opportunist, bought the trilogy looking forward to all three books. "Red" becomes even more unlikable in this book. It does tell the story of the love triangle from her point of view, but her character is petty and manipulative. She comes to light as a pretty miserable person. I'm glad I bought it as it did help to carry the story forward, but it was definitely the weakest of the three books in my opinion.

Not What I expected

I was introduced to Tarryn Fisher first with "The Wives." After that book, this one was just... OK.... I think it was mostly, for me, the personality clash I had with the main character, Red. She is very entitled, and I understand that is the whole premise of the character but, she just annoyed me with HOW chiche the entitlement was. Again, this is all because of my personality clash with her. In real life, we could never be friends, granted I would be "white trash," as Red would categorize me, so, it would never be possible anyways! LOL!!! If whiney, entitled, shallow, materialistic is not your cup of tea, skip this one. If that does grate on your nerves, GREAT STORY!!

Pointless..... not worth the credit

This story has everything I look for in my guilty pleasures. However, even though the book begins with promise of drama, lies, and surprise twists - nothing happens. It just goes on and nothing really happens at all. Would be willing to try this author again but most likely will not try another in this particular series.
