The Opportunist by Tarryn FisherBook description (via Amazon):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 redemptionA freakin PLUS! A+:Tarryn Fisher did an amazing job with this book. I was pulled into the story from the start. Early on, we learn that Olivia is a very damaged character. The story is written from her POV and it is written so well that I could almost feel the heartbreak and sadness that Olivia was going through; depression, hope, guilt, etc.Toward the middle of the book, Olivia starts to shut herself down. She lives her life like a robot on auto-pilot. The author does an outstanding job in getting the reader to feel this by changing her writing style to match this time of Olivia’s life. The reader is left to ponder that Olivia isn’t happy or sad, she’s just living without really living.She’s so emotionless and you can feel it through Fisher’s writing.It’s amazing how the author literally got my heart to ache for Caleb and Olivia. I loved the two characters. I was rooting for Caleb and Olivia’s relationship and rooting for them to both grow and progress into good people.
