Publisher's 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.

MORE OF THE SAME..LIES, SECRETS & HEARTACHE

The same story plus more told from Leah's perspective in constant flashbacks and then back to the brutal reality of what price her lies, secrets and manipulation is having on her marriage to Caleb. Never showing him her true selfish nature which is only revealed after the birth of their daughter. And Caleb is forever torn between the decisions he made, the actions he took, the present situation and the love he can't ever forget.

More shocking twists, revelations and spite filled words but Caleb's longing for Olivia has never ceased and is only getting worse and how far will he go to reclaim his lost love and the other half of his soul. I guess I'll find out in book 3 because there's no HEA in this tragic tale.

Worth a credit? It's very well written but, for me, it's too much of a tragedy, I wish I hadn't started this Trilogy so NO but I've already downloaded book 3 so I'll see it through to the bitter end.

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!

Lots of repeat

I suppose you have to read this one if you read the first and are wanting the resolution hopefully in the last book but there is a lot of repeat from the first book. Yes, you learn some extra details from Leah's point of view but I found myself ff through some of the repeated past scenes because I wanted to get to the current story. There is definitely a way to cut out a lot of this book and add it to either the first or last book.

Tarryn Fisher is one of my favorite authors.

I like Tarryn Fisher. I don't know why it took me so long to get to this series. Can't wait to read Thief the 3rd. and last book in this series.

Fiery wife

Narcissist : a person who is overly self-involved, and often vain and selfish.
And a living proof is Leah Smith, a character so convoluted and twisted, that she is totally unabashed about it. Tarryn writes Leah with unbridled vanity and vampishness. No apologies for tainting the "wife" of Caleb Drake, no dilemma as to which colours to paint it with.
Leah is a poster model for I, Me, Myself. The world should revolve around her, people should focus on her and every situation is mauled and manipulated from HER OWN POV.
I loved that whatever Tarryn threw at her, she twisted it around to see how it benefitted her or how it affected her.
I haven't had this much fun reading a character in a long time and my delight was immeasurable when I met Leah.
Though she did ping at my heart like frozen peas on a glass pane too..but it was momentary...just for a wee bit. I'm not saying what she did was right...but I understand!!
Plot was pretzel like, so many twists, so many turns and WTH was Caleb thinking??!
I need to twist his ears in Thief. Seriously, his gears are not all turning it seems. The heroines are definitely more egocentric and cunning than the hero..at this point.
But jury shall reach the verdict in the next book
5 stars for Fiery Wife
