    This is how it feels like to be inside the mind of a child hating, friends judging, men stealing manipulative woman with no boundaries whatsoever to get exactly what she wants when she wants it.I have to admit, I was a little apprehensive about starting this book The Opportunist was easily one of the best books I ve read this year or any other year for that matter and it made me become a huge fan of Tarryn Fisher as an author So, why would I have second thoughts about starting the sequel to one of my all time favorite books you might ask Well, because this time the sequel was written in the point of view of a characters I truly despise Warning this review contains spoilers for those who haven t read the first part of the series Meet Leah Smith My name is Leah and I will do anything to keep my husband While the first part of the Love Me With Lies series was the story of Olivia, the Opportunist, Dirty Red is the story of Leah aka Red She s a wife, a mother, a friend, a sister and she pretty much sucks at being either of those What she cares than anything about is to keep hur husband, Caleb, for herself and for that she is willing to do anything I have done a number of things to keep this man I have lied and cheated I have been sexy and meek, fierce and vulnerable I have been everything but myself It wasn t always easy to try and understand why Leah did things the way she did, but because of the way the author described it, I was able to put my feelings aside and after a while I became captivated by the story despite my original hatred towards the main character The story also introduces a new character, Sam, the manny His honesty and straightforwardness were really refreshing and I liked that he wasn t afraid to speak his mind to Leah Shit, I forgot, he says It s hard to remember that a cold shrew like you is actually a mother What s better is that Leah actually seemed to accept the fact that he was so honest They scenes between them were some of my favorites and it was interesting to watch how their friendship evolved.The story alternated between the present and the past and most of Leah s inner monologues consisted of her recalling all the events that happened in The Opportunist Some of the her inner monologues really showed her selfish and immature side that made me think

    Seriously, grow up I will not go into detail, but some of the things she did as a new mom were truly awful view spoiler Who drops their newborn at a daycare for so many hours and then forgets to pick them up hide spoiler

    Now that I ve been thoroughly mind f ked, I need a cigaretteI m going to let y all in on a little secret Ready I was 100% prepared not to like Dirty Red I was really hoping that I would, but who really gives a damn about Leah I sure as hell don t Since when does the resident bitch get her own book I wanted to stomp my foot like a petulant child, throw something that would make a nice shatter noise and yell Why do I have to read a book about f king Leah except I m a child so I probably wouldn t use the f word I knew I d feel like a dog in heat humping the leg of Dirty Red Begging the entire time for a few Caleb and Olivia scraps hoping Tarryn would just throw me somethinganything Why Leah Despite my not so slight reservations I decided to give the author a chance to prove me wrong If anyone could manipulate me to enjoy something I hateit s Tarryn Fisher If anyone could get inside my head and change my very emotions to work with the story instead of against itit s Tarryn Fisher If anyone could gift me something I didn t even know I wantedit s Tarryn Fisher This is what I wanted I just didn t know it yet.Where The Opportunist was about angst and emotional bipolarism, Dirty Red was about manipulation and it felt amazing I read this book straight through without stopping, without for one second being detached, uninterested, or without feeling I was fully fully invested in a story about someone I cared nothing about Manipulation One of my favorite things about Tarryn Fisher is the vagueness of her writing We don t get every conversation or tiresome detail She gives just enough for the development of an emotionally charged and controversial plot, but at the same time allows the reader to develop their own details, draw their own conclusions We are given the freedom, in our minds, to create our own version of Dirty RedI didn t expectI didn t expect that I didn t expect to find so much humor in Dirty Red I didn t expect to fall so much in love with Caleb I didn t expect to find answers to so many questions only to create new ones I didn t expect to love this book so damn much Tarryn Fisher once again proves that a book isn t about loving it or hating it It s about the emotional journey the book has the potential to take you on The potential it has to make you feel It s about the experience, an experience that will change the way you look at everything I can t wait for the sequel READ ON

    Love, love, love this series After getting Olivia s side of the story in The Opportunist , it was a change of pace to follow it with Leah s side of the story I absolutely hated Leah in the first book, even if I sympathized with her situation So, I wasn t sure whether or not I would be able to enjoy the story from her perspective.Oddly enough, I did enjoy it immensely, but I m having a hard time explaining why I did This is perhaps the first time that I ve read a story where I despised the main character from start to finish Not only did Leah fail to redeem herself, but she became even despicable as the book progressed This was truly one wicked woman I rooted against her the entire time Yet, I loved every minute of this screwed up story How bizarre is that In some ways, I did come to see Leah as a flawed human I felt bad for her for having such a terrible upbringing I also pitied her for her undying devotion to Caleb It was just sad to see the lengths she was willing to go to for a man that was clearly in love with another woman.However, every time I began to feel too much for Leah, another one of her conniving actions would be revealed I could not believe some of the manipulative stunts that she pulled Olivia has nothing on this lady in the crazy department Nonetheless, I couldn t pull myself away from this story I loved every sordid detail This twisted love triangle has become my new obsession On to book 3

    HOLY HELL What an absolutely BRILLIANT book 5 stars FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED BELOW This is a book about a villain I was morbidly curious about it and yet very apprehensive I couldn t imagine enjoying a book that was told entirely from the perspective of a selfish, manipulative liar I was sure I would hate it and, in truth I don t think I have ever hated a character as much as I did Leah but I absolutely loved the book and that is a true testament to the strength and pure genius of Tarryn Fisher s writing.That being said, Leah was just a a vile, venomous snake She was the master of power play and manipulation and this book delves right into the twisted mind of a selfish, self absorbed, cold hearted, conniving, jealousy plagued woman willing to go to any lengths to keep her prize Any Lengths I have done a number of things to keep this man I have lied and cheated I have been sexy and meek, fierce and vulnerable I have been everything but myself He is mine right now, but I am never enough for him I can feel it see it in the way he looks at me His eyes are always probing, searching for something I don t know what he s looking for I wish I did I am who I am My name is Leah, and I will do anything to keep my husband I want what Olivia has I want to be enough for him I ll never leave him If I leave him, she wins The first line of this book gutted me Totally gutted me H.o.l.y H.e.l.l.I was in shock absolute shock and after reading the first two pages, I d decided without a shadow of a doubt that I would hate Leah forever for that It was as though she d been born without a moral compass I picture myself hogtying Olivia and dumping her in the Everglades for the gators to deal with Of course I would never do that I would hire someone to do it for me I m not going to say anything about the plot because honestly, anything I say will be a spoiler for book 1 and I don t to ruin the experience for anyone because reading this series truly is an journey worth taking.Suffice it to say that this is Leah s story and is told entirely from her POV It is a direct continuation timeline wise from where book 1 left off but has many flashbacks scattered throughout that help fill in blanks from the past and further tie the pieces of this brilliantly tangled mess of a story together.Because of the way the story gets you right into her mind though, I could see that at her core she was really just a very damaged, insecure woman woman But then again, everyone has damage of some kind and there is a point where being damaged can no longer suffice as an excuse Her insecurities took her into the land of psycho I could understand where she was coming from because her backstory gave us insight into why she was insecure and I mean her husband was in love with another woman and she knew it from the first time they d met so her feelings were understandable to a certain extent but her actions were not It went too far Especially the way she handled the new development in this story line spoiler which I can t talk about honest to goodness, that just made me sick to my stomach.The writing is just pure brilliance The descriptions, the details, the emotions, the dialogue, the subtext, the layers upon layers upon layers were woven together in such a way that despite how much I hated Leah, I enjoyed every word of this book.This was the first time I d read a book about a character like her and admittedly, it was fascinating to see her thoughts, learn what spurned all of her hateful actions, watch her twist reality over and over again to continually paint herself as the victim No I think I am not the poisonous snake Olivia is Everything that I ve had to do is her fault I am innocent I read the entire book with this angsty, almost queesy feeling in my heart I was lightheaded At times I felt like I wanted to throw up It was worse than anything I d felt in book one It was like watching your favorite puppy walk right into a nest of vipers There were moments in the book where I wanted to be able to feel bad for her But then she d do something just so horrid that it would wash away my pity and replace it with seething hatred I waffled back and forth between hatred and pity but mostly ended up sitting on the hatred side of the fence.Maybe if she hadn t so thoroughly fucked up the lives of the characters I cared about, I might have been able to but I just HATED her She disgusted me She was a pathetic wretch of a person who was just too selfish and manipulative for me to ever be able to truly pity.We don t see much of Olivia in this book but her brief appearances are just epic and every hint of an appearance or reference to her gave me heart palpitations There is one scene though in particular where I have almost two solid pages of text highlighted because of how absolutely phenomenal it was.I m really looking forward to reading Caleb s POV next because I want to see what on earth he was thinking with Leah How could he not see how soulless she was There are so questions to which I desperately need answers.A relationship like the once Caleb and Leah had simply wasn t built to last When the entire framework is build on a foundation of broken hearts and lies, it s inevitable that it will all come crumbling down it was just a matter of when.Caleb and Olivia were and always had been meant for each other They knew it I knew it Leah even knew it it was just a question of the right people figuring that out and hoping that once they did, it wouldn t be too late to salvage this once in a lifetime love They spark when they re together, it s like putting a hurricane and a tornado in the same room you can feel the tension I didn t believe in the cliche of soul mates until I saw them together It is so rare for me to love a book with a love triangle in it But the reason I loved this one as much as I did was the same reason I loved Thoughtless I never, for one single moment, doubted Caleb and Olivia s love for each other There was no question as to who should end up with who I didn t choose her, his voice breaks Love is illogical You fall into it like a manhole Then you re just stuck You die in love than you live in love There were some seriously EPIC lines in this book Epic Epic Epic The ending just built and built and the layer of the story wove themselves into place More lies were uncovered and finally many truths came out into the light and we were left with a revelation that left me dumfounded with my jaw on the floor Utterly in shock Tarryn Fisher is masterfully gifted with words Without a doubt, this is one of the best written series I ve read From the first word to the last, I felt fully connected to every single word of this story.I m going straight on to the final book This series has taken over my life and my heart I can t function until I see how it all ends.If you haven t yet taken the plunge and started these, do it now They are an absolutely unforgettable roller coaster I can t recommend them highly enough 5 stars For of my reviews, visit Aestas Book BlogAnd come join the Aestas Book Blog Facebook Page

    THIS REVIEW CONTAINS MINOR SPOILERS3.5 close to 4 STARS out of 5Genre Adult FictionWarning Do not read if you have not read book one in this series One thing to know about me I dig If I can t find it I dig deeper, harder I dig until I find it The only thing I couldn t dig into was my own mind I didn t want to see it Inner monologue of Leah My first clear thought is that I want to make him pay I flash to an irrational thought, where I picture myself hogtying Olivia and dumping her in the Everglades for the gators to deal with Of course I would never do that I would hire someone to do it for me.I file through all of the other emotional bombs I can drop on him I have told so many lies that I have an entire buffet of shadiness to choose from I pluck out the worst one and rub my chin on my shoulder This one will hurt him, probably deeper than anything that I could do or say about Olivia Ready set Inner monologue of LeahI Cannot even get my words out This book was filled with lies, lies, secrets and lies all for the sake of love Everything I thought about Leah going in to this book was proven wrong In book one I enjoyed her villainous ways However in this book I found it obsessive and obnoxious Originally I thought I would feel some sort of pity I thought I would start to connect with her emotionally But no None of that happened Instead I hate Leah with a passion Her heart is colder then f cking Antarctica And that is putting it mildly I think the frozen tundra is her temperature snaps fingers Yes, that s it The frozen tundra describes her best Cold Lonely Void of humanity He has power over me Leah So much it s ridiculousI hold nothing but hate and contempt for Leah If I m being honest I could consider it of a love hate thing I do love a good villain But, that girl is poison I swear that is the best way to describe her evil manipulative lying ass She is obsessed with Caleb and on top of that she is obsessed with his obsession of Olivia Yeah, I know, the b tch is C R A Z Y In Dirty Red Leah follows through on her plans at the end of The Opportunist She get s pregnant and has a baby girl named Estella Yup a girl, much to her dismay of course Why Because Leah is so full of herself and extremely insecure that she does not want Caleb to share his love with any other female Leah is detached from her daughter she has no feelings what so ever for Estella And Caleb does not take it lightly.When Leah screws up and makes a HUGE mistake regarding Estella Caleb decides to hire a nanny Sam the manny man nanny is not one to mince words He easily takes notice to Leah s failing marriage When Caleb is pushed to far he tells Leah they need time apart And when she asks Sam for his advice he gives it to her straight How do I get him to come home Leah Get a new personality and learn to shut the fuck up SamLOL Needless to say Sam provided good laughs I enjoyed him he definitely added flavor.In the midst of all the marital woes we get flashbacks that provide some insight on Leah How she was raised Her relationship with her parents Her interaction with other kids growing up How she copes with rejection All the new information does is help confirm her status as the ice queen of the frozen tundra Even as a kid Leah would revel in other kids misery caused by her It was sickening Pure and simple there is no other way to describe it.Fave Lines What is Dirty Red doing here Cammie What else are you not telling me Probably the same amount of stuff you re not telling me Leah and Caleb You don t own me, I say casually, but my hand is shaking as I lift my lighter It is such a lie Caleb has owned every one of my thoughts and actions for the last five years Leah I thought you loved your husband She blows air through her nose The action reminds me of an agitated horse Her eyes rove from my shoes and land in disgust on my face I love yours too Leah and OliviaFave lines unsaid I am so jealous of his hurt that I throw my head back and open my mouth to scream in rage He won t hear me No matter how loudly I scream his name, he will not hear me He only hears her Leah My voice lacks conviction I used to be such an accomplished liar LeahMy Thoughts I must say Tarryn Fisher definitely has a way with words They rip you and don t let go I am conflicted on how to rate it I decided it was of a three star book because unlike it s predecessor I was able to predict the outcome of six different plot twist I also did not get enough Olivia I missed her and found myself craving of her Then there is the whole Seth thing His character came out of nowhere I mean. yes, I knew Caleb was not an only child but Seth s character was out of left field I think I would have took to him better if he was introduced to us in book 1.Dear readers,I gave this book 3.5 stars because I simply knew what was coming next with various plot lines I think I would have ranked it higher if we got Olivia I was dying to know her pov and to see her interact with both Noah and Caleb On Goodreads rating system I allow the full four stars because Tarry Fisher can take words and make you feel them in the full measure of which a characters says or thinks them I find that very important when reading a book And while I did not hold empathy for Leah I was still submersed in her world wanting to know how it would all play out My RatingsCharacters love some hate someWriting Style Good, Tarryn Fisher has a way with wordsPlot Storyline A little predictableSteam Factor LowOverall I liked it I just desired Olivia.Now go forth and read Then come tell us about it on Goodreads

    7th January 2013 Firstly I have to say I LOVE YOU TARRYN FISHER Amazing, just simply amazing The twists, the turns, the bitchiness, the crazyness AAARRGGHHHH I loved every minute of it The Opportunist left us on a cliffhanger and Dirty Red filled us in on all the gaps of what we wanted to know.I have to say and dont all kill me now but i felt sorry for Leah, she really had a hard time growing up In Dirty Red you get to understand Leah a little because the book is from her point of view 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 In The Opportunist, i hated Leah with a passion and i mean PASSION But in Dirty Red, i got to understand her a lot Up until the end, then all my softness towards her changed into me thinking, she is a bitch, a real stupid bitch AarrghhAt the end at 2am i was left like this September 26th 2012 Sheeet i need this now While googling EVERYTHING Tarryn Fisher yes i m a little obsessed , i came across this at www.thepressedpenny.comDirty Red Exclusive by Nena Mon Jun 18, 2012 5 54 amTarryn Fisher promised a

the future WARNING SPOILERSpoiler Dirty RedShe looks the same Raven hair hanging wildly to her waist She is shorter than I am, but not by much She is wearing teal, linen pants and a cream sheath shirt that hangs casually off one defined shoulder I eye her gold hoop earrings which are big enough to fit my entire hand through They make her look exotic and slightly dangerous She has always made me feel plain.Her eyes rove over the handful of occupants in the diner, searching for a face she recognizes an old man, a couple who share the same side of a booth, two servers folding silverware into napkins me.I see the shock overcome her features the parting of her lips, the slight spreading of white around her irises Suddenly, she stiffens Her eyes chase to the four corners of the room, and I know she is looking for him I shake my head to tell her he s not here I take a sip of my coffee and I wait.She moves with purpose toward my table, when she reaches where I am sitting, she doesn t sit but stares at me expectantly An old client She says dryly Well, I am aren t I I motion for her to sit I d sent an anonymous message to her office, claiming I was an old client and telling her I was in legal trouble I d asked her to meet me at a diner named Tiffany s I had no idea if she d come or not, but it was better than showing up at her office.She slides cautiously into the seat across from me, never taking her eyes from my face Well, what the fuck do you want I flinch Louboutins or not, she s still the same crass piece of white trash she used to be I thought maybe you could look over this document for me I reach into my purse and pull out the papers I d stolen from Caleb s filing cabinet Placing them on the table, I slide them toward her What is this she asks She eyes me distastefully, and I want to reach across the table and hack off her hair with my butter knife How dare she look at me that way She has single handedly ruined my life I d have everything if it weren t for her devious, overreaching hands.I d probably also be in prison I push that thought away Now is not the time for gratitude Now is the time for answers I poke the document in front of her Take a look See for yourself Without moving her head, she looks at the papers then back to me It s a smooth, hard, impressive piece of intimidation The art of her body language is something to be admired Why would I want to do that she says.She s making me feel chilled I get a flashback of being on the witness stand and my heartrate spikes I practice to see if I can do it too It s Caleb s, I say, only moving my lips.I don t know whether it s the mention of his name or if my imitation of her body language is working, but she tenses.A server approaches our table Olivia reaches for papers Get her a coffee, two creamers I say waving him away He hurries off Olivia, who is reading, briefly glances up at me I spent almost every day with her for nine months I know what she likes.I sip my coffee as she reads, watching her face.Her coffee arrives Without looking up she pulls the lids from the creamers and dumps them into her cup.She lifts the mug to her lips, but halfway there her hand freezes Coffee spills onto the table as she slams the mug down She stands up Where did you get that She is backing away from the table, shaking her head Why is my name on there I run my tongue across my teeth I was hoping you could tell me that She bolts for the door I stand up, tossing a twenty on the table and go after her.I follow her into the parking lot and corner her by the newspaper stand You are not getting out of explaining why your name is on this deed along with my husbands Her face is washed of color She shakes her head I don t know, Leah He never I don t know She covers her face with her palms, and I hear her sob That only makes me angrier I take a threatening step toward her You re sleeping with him aren t you She pulls her hands away and glares at me No I love my husband She is clearly insulted that I would even accuse her of such a thing I love mine My voice cracks So, why does he love you She looks at me with true loathing He doesn t, she says simply He chose you It pains her to give me those words I can see the bleeding emotions spilling from her skin.I hold up the deed and shake it He bought you a house She snatches the deed from me and points to a date Did you miss this little detail Long before you, Leah She shoves it back at me But, you know that So, why did you really trick me into coming here I swallow a nervous reaction She sees it and smiles cruelly I should have let them throw you in prison She turns away, reaching for her car door Her statement infuriates me I dig my fingernails into my palms and breathe through my nose So you could have him I blurt My blood pounds in my ears I ask myself that question all the time Why did she agree to defend me Why did she win the case She freezes, looks at me over her shoulder Yeah I didn t expect the truth I thought you loved your husband She blows air through her nose I love yours too OH MY GOD I CANT WAIT

    Find all of my reviews at I one starred this sucker Here s what I need all you fangirls to do while I explain I really dug The Opportunist and made the rare exception of placing Book 2 on my TBR because the storyline peaked my curiosity I admittedly HATE books in a series and rarely read past the first The reason Because there is always SO MUCH FILLER There s hardly ever enough material to produce three or books especially in the romance NA erotica whateveryouwanttocallthem genres Buuuuuuuuut, when a book fairy gifts you a book in order for you to take the hit so she doesn t have to, there s kinda no choice but to read Book 2 Guess what I found out while reading it The Opportunist worked for me because 1 it was different even with the tired trope of accident induced amnesia , 2 Olivia was an unlikable character, but you weren t supposed to like her at best she would end up as the lesser of two evils , and 3 Tarryn Fisher is bad at romance in the best way possible I too am bad at romance, and that is why I want to spend hours braiding her raven locks love reading Ms Fisher s stories Sadly, Dirty Red was the book of filler and or throw everything at the wall and see what might stick There was the re hashing of The Opportunist s story, there were twists insert eyeroll , there was the character development I use that term in the loosest manner possible of Big Red herself However, this book wasn t necessary at all Big Red was soooooo one dimensional that it became pretty clear even the author wasn t that interested in her story And Caleb Nothing like getting to know someone deeper than surface level only to discover you want to smack that bitch All that being said, I m still gonna read 3 Zero shame, that is my name Because Tarryn Fisher has me caught up like a fish on a damn hook and I just have to find out where all this ends up Love is illogical You fall into it like a manhole Then you re just stuck You die in love than you live in love And speaking of fish looky looky Introducing my newest reading buddy Billy Bass, a k a the only guy in my house that might be able to drink me under the table Many thanks to my fellow connoisseur of fine brews JaHy for this book hookup Your selection ended up being the perfect excuse for imbibing half a dozen a couple of grown up root beers.

    3 4 Ginger Stars THIS JUST INLeah Drake is found guilty of not only being a liar, a manipulator and a first class bitch, but also of being an unfit mother to poor defenseless baby Estella, so sad The Reason for 3 4 StarsI found myself for the majority of the book looking forward to her next interaction with Olivia, Caleb, Seth or Sam I felt that on her own Leah wasn t enough and Olivia and Caleb were barely in the book Dirty Red is told through the point of view of Leah Drake and shares both past and present story lines We learn a lot about Leah s childhood adolescence as well as her family dynamics We also follow her from the moment she meets Caleb to the present I wondered what stupid bitch let him go Whoever she was, I would wipe her from his memory in no time at all Why Because I was the best of the best the Godiva, the Maserati, the perfect colorless diamond I could improve anyone s life especially this man s As readers, we are privileged to the inner thoughts of Leah and I can tell you she really is a malicious, self centered, manipulative, obsessive and mean redhead.Leah gives birth to a beautiful daughter named Estella She feels nothing for her daughter except jealousy for Caleb s affections When I tell you that Leah maybe of the world s worst moms I m not joking Some of things she does and feels just breaks my heart.We meet some new characters one of which I REALLY liked Sam, the Manny He handles Leah perfectly throughout the story I would love for him to be in future books Sometimes no matter how much you plot and plan to hold onto what you want If it wasn t yours to begin with you have to face the truth I thought you loved your husband She blows air through her nose The action reminds of an agitated horse Her eyes rove from my shoes and land in disgust on my face I love yours too In a way, Dirty Red could also be called clearing the air Most past deceptions on Leah and Caleb s parts comes to light by the end of the story I didn t choose her, his voice breaks Love is illogical You fall into it like manhole Then you re just stuck You die in love than you live in love CalebMost readers will want to know if the book ends with a HEA and or is it a cliffhanger view spoiler No HEA for Leah at least We aren t left hanging but the story isn t over hide spoiler

    If you read The Opportunist, you probably hate Leah as much as I do I didn t want to read this book I hate Leah I don t want to be in her mind, or hear how she feels, or go through what she goes throughI just want her to hurt badly and for the ending I WANTED Yes I am selfish to happen But it is like an addiction I had to read it I don t know how I feel about it because, I don t care about Leah s feelings or her past I think that is Tarryn s talent she puts you there, she makes you love Caleb, hate Leah, wish for Olivia You do learn about Leah s past her perspective what she has done I hated the beginning because I kept thinking , Great, Caleb will never leave her now But he will never stop loving Olivia You never quite stop loving someone when you re in that deep Everyone knows it I didn t believe in the clich of soul mates until I saw them together It s only a matter of time before the Caleb Olivia saga starts up again Even Leah knows it 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 Yet, everyone still keeps going through the paces Leah does everything she can think of to keep him, Caleb is torn and who knows what is going on with Olivia The ending gives me hope I admit my jaw dropped but I have hope Casting Leah Caleb Olivia
