Feature and Follow Friday #3

Alison Can Read Feature & Follow

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!

Q:  Tell us about the most emotional scene you've ever read in a book - and how did you react? 

From Goodreads:
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.
The first book/scene that comes to mind is from The Opportunist (Love Me With Lies #1) by Tarryn Fisher.  Specifically, the ending was so emotional.  I hate to give away spoilers but the ending of this book made me cry and I have only ever cried reading one other book (Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah).  Essentially, The Opportunist centers around Olivia trying to get the love of her life, Caleb, back after she did something pretty horrible.  There are chapters from the past interspersed with the present in a way that is just perfect.  Again, I don't want to give away the ending, but it just tore me up.  I am anxiously awaiting the conclusion to this series.  You can read my review of the second book, Dirty Red, and my WoW for the third book, Thief.   

I am just starting out so I would love love love followers via Bloglovin', RSS, or e-mail.  Thanks for stopping by!  Link up your FF below!

  15. Adding the book to my list, even though I'm not big romance reader. It sounds really good! New GFC follower.

    Here's my FF ShirleyIsNotMyName

    1. It's not really a romance -- more of a psychological exploration. There is a love involved but it's more about being broken

  16. thanks for stopping by my new adult post last week. and thanks for the NA recs. I finally read Easy and I love!! i haven't heard of/read the opportunist but i'll be on the look out for it. it sounds like i might enjoy it :)
