Book Review : The Opportunist by Tarryn Fisher

December 23, 2013 Book review 6 ★★★★

This book launches you at top speed into crazy land.  I love books that mix it up and stick in zany plot turns that leave you feeling dizzy.  With the result that I thrived on this book and each shock gave me a delicious thrill and made scream what, what, WHAT!

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.

First Line of The Opportunist:

“I am Olivia Kaspen, and if I love something I rip it from my life.”

My Thoughts on The Opportunist :

OK, before you read this you need to know the characters are horrible!  They are scheming, manipulative and will lie and calculate and use all their wily tricks to get what they want.  And I loved being reeled into that world.  The characters were ones I loved to hate and the worse the got, the more I loved it!

It is one of those books that the less you know about it in advance, the more entertaining it all is.  So I’m keeping this review short and sweet.  What I will say is :

Crazy Plot Twists – tick
Horrible but interesting characters – tick
A love triangle that is well done and very uncliched – tick
A book where I raced to pick up the next book asap – tick
Writing style that is fun and engaging – tick


Rating Report
Did I feel it?
Overall: four-stars

Who should read The Opportunist?

If you are a fan of twisty plots and contemporary books then I’d recommend this one to you.  Beware if you are someone who needs to love her characters, then this is not the book for you (unless of course you love bitches in which case work away!).

      You are right, she does! Very similar bone structure. The book is really good in a love to hate all the characters kind of way.
