Love is patient; love is kind.
Love doesn’t boast or brag.
There’s no arrogance in love;
it’s never rude, crude, or indecent-it’s not self absorbed.
Love isn’t easily upset.
Love doesn’t tally wrongs.
Love trusts, hopes, and endures no matter what.
Love will never become obsolete.
I’ll fight for her.
Caleb Drake never got over his first love. Not when he got married. Not when she got married. When life suddenly comes full circle Caleb must decide how how far he is willing to go to get the aloof and alluring Olivia Kaspen back. But for every action in life there is a consequence, and soon Caleb finds out that sometimes love comes at an unbearably high price.
It is nearly impossible to not stare at this cover. For always. That font. ;)
But once again, Tarryn blew me away. I love these characters, I love this love story–it was real. People are ugly, love is mean, and this showed that so honestly. Nothing about this journey was glamorous, nothing came easily, and really, that’s how life works. No matter how lucky in love you are, chances are, you dealt with bullshit along the way. I like reading that. I like being reminded of humanity. How people mess up, but can move past it.
Over the course of the series, I loved the progression over time. Each book was so unique, but written so fluidly over such a large span of time, you barely recognized the time frames, the changes in POV, all of it. That takes such immense talent. So hats off to Fisher.
I realize I am probably the last
Mohican human to finish this series, but if you’ve not, you should. I guess I stopped because the masochist in me liked the rawness I felt after finishing The Opportunist. But I’m so glad I finally decided to see what else I could learn about and from this lovely mess. Because holy hell–the whole “there’s two sides to every story, and then there’s the truth” couldn’t be truer.
Also worth noting, I didn’t separately review Dirty Red, but that’s because I wasn’t going to review this either–anymore I feel like certain books don’t need a review. I know I won’t do it justice, so it’s merely me spouting words on a blog because I am overly excited. Case. in. point. BUT! and it’s a big BUT–that book is pure magic. Anyone who can make me read a full-length novel on the villain is brilliant. That book was fantastic. I know lots of people were turned off by the idea of Leah’s book, but seriously, do NOT skip that book.
Such an amazing, unique series. And it ends as it should. With Caleb’s book. With the plot. With that cover. ;)
