Guest Review: The Opportunist by Tarryn Fisher

I am currently in emotional OVERLOAD from reading this story!!!!  I don’t even know where to start...  this story made me angry, sad and happy over and over again but mostly angry.  I couldn’t keep track of how many times that I wanted to slap the shit out of, Olivia, the main female character!!!   The story is about a guy and girl (Caleb and Olivia) who meet and date in college for about a year but then separate and don’t see each other until 4 years later when they run into one another in a music store.  Olivia is the quiet type and he is a popular jock.  She has no intentions of ever dating him but he tries everything he can to get to know her better.    I know!! I know!! You are thinking that this sounds like the beginning of most love stories but I promise you it’s not.  There is no happily ever after here!!
 These two have a crazy relationship.  After weeks of trying to get Olivia to date him, Caleb gives up and moves on but guess who gets jealous?!?!   Yep!! You guessed right!   At this point in the story, I knew I did not like Olivia and that feeling never went away.  The girl can’t figure out what she wants and then when she thinks she knows, she LIES to get it! 

What makes this story even more interesting is that Caleb has amnesia from a car accident and when he sees Olivia in the music store he doesn’t know her.  So, now what do you think this evil girl does??  She pretends to not know him in the hopes that she can win him back again.  This sets in motion many more lies that again made me IRATE!!  But, Olivia has no idea what she is up against.  Caleb’s current girlfriend, Leah, will also do whatever she needs to do to keep her man.   Leah and Olivia battle it out for Caleb’s love and my opinion is that neither one were worthy of it!  I know it sounds like I didn’t like this story but the truth is I LOVED this story for all its drama.  I would hate Olivia one minute and then the next I was smiling at how caring and patient Caleb was.  In my opinion, Caleb should have dumped them both on their asses and found a new woman!!  I may have shouted that at my kindle once or twice but he never did listen to me. Hehe!! 
There is so much more to this story and I could go on and on but if I do I might ruin it for you, so go buy it and let me know if you dislike Olivia as much as I do.
