Review: Dirty Red (Love Me With Lies, #2) by Tarryn Fisher


Dirty Red (Love Me With Lies, #2) by Tarryn Fisher

Blurb from Goodreads:
Dear Opportunist,

You thought you could take him from me, but you lost. Now, that he's mine I'll do anything to keep him. Do you doubt me? I have everything that was supposed to be yours. In case you were wondering; he doesn't ever think about you anymore. I won't let him go....ever.
Dirty Red

My Review:

Holy $&;*!!!!!!!!!! What else can I say? I think my heart stopped beating several times while reading this book. Anyone that reads my blog knows that The Opportunist was my favorite adult book of last year and Dirty Red may be even better! I don't know how Tarryn Fisher is able to write from a character's POV who you really, really, really don't want to like and still make you feel bad for her but she did it again (she is a goddess!) Now, don't get me wrong, I am Team Caleb/Olivia 110% but poor Leah!

This book was told from Leah's POV and if you think Olivia is a mastermind, wait until you get into Leah's head. While reading the book, there were times that I seriously thought, how on earth could someone do that? But, of course, Tarryn was able to seamlessly weave Leah's cruel, cruel past into the present to provide vital insight into Leah's actions. The ending seriously gave me a heart attack -- I was delighted, stupefied and heartbroken all at once!

I can't believe I am going to have to wait to so long for book #3 from Caleb's POV -- seriously, how will I wait? Tarryn, thank you for giving us another absolutely amazing, heartbreaking, soul shaking book!

Review: History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

Blurb from Goodreads:
Linda has an idiosyncratic home life: her parents live in abandoned commune cabins in northern Minnesota and are hanging on to the last vestiges of a faded counter-culture world. The kids at school call her 'Freak', or 'Commie'. She is an outsider in all things. Her understanding of the world comes from her observations at school, where her teacher is accused of possessing child pornography, and from watching the seemingly ordinary life of a family she babysits for. Yet while the accusation against the teacher is perhaps more innocent than it seemed at first, the ordinary family turns out to be more complicated. As Linda insinuates her way into the family's orbit, she realises they are hiding something. If she tells the truth, she will lose the normal family life she is beginning to enjoy with them; but if she doesn't, their son may die. Superbly-paced and beautifully written, HISTORY OF WOLVES is an extrao…
