“Olivia Kaspen has just discovered that her ex-boyfriend, Caleb Drake, has lost his memory. With an already lousy reputation for taking advantage of situations, Olivia must decide how far she is willing to go to get Caleb back. Wrestling to keep her true identity and their sordid past under wraps, Olivia’s greatest obstacle is Caleb’s wicked, new girlfriend; Leah Smith. It is a race to the finish as these two vipers engage in a vicious tug of war to possess a man who no longer remembers them. But, soon enough Olivia must face the consequences of her lies, and in the process discover that sometimes love falls short of redemption.”


I don’t know what Tarryn has, that it always took me days before finally diving into making a review for her books. The Opportunist is a beautiful mess and not your typical love story.

Can I just put in here shouty capitals and loads of exclamation points? Because that is how I feel after reading the book. Damn you, Olivia. Damn you, Caleb. Damn you, Leah. How can you all be so complicated and how can I be so stupid to love all of you?! I mean, woah! I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! I AM RATING IT 5 stars and 5 hearts!

I like how the pacing is just okay. Not too fast, not too slow. I needed time to absorb every scene from every chapter. It was intense. It shows how one would opt to be manipulative just for his/her loved one. The characters were flawed and they depict how fucked up we can get when it comes to love.
