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



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

Leah Smith finally has everything she has ever wanted. Except she doesn’t. Her marriage feels more like a loan than a lifelong commitment, and the image she has worked so hard to build is fraying before her eyes. With a new role and a past full of secrets, Leah must decide how far she is willing to go to keep what she has stolen.

I’m going to keep this review simple and to the point.

When I finished The Opportunist my heart hurt so deeply, and then I realized the next book in the series was Leah’s book. To say that I didn’t want to read this book would be an understatement, however I am one who has to know where the story is going to go especially one that pulls your heart out of your chest like this one did to me.

I won’t use the word Hate, because that is just such a strong word and one I try to avoid. Now I couldn’t stand Leah. Reading Dirty Red especially the beginning of the book did nothing but confirm how I felt about her. She was downright vile, and the extent of her lies just baffled me. Now I will admit that the more I read I eventually couldn’t help but to feel sorry for Leah. Yes she is a terrible person, but as you read you grow to understand her thought process, her childhood and the way she was treated. Not giving her excuses by any means but I definitely was able to have a clearer mind on understanding who she was as a person and the drive behind her obsession with Caleb.

I am definitely glad I read this story, because it is needed to understand every aspect of the storyline. The being able to see every angle of this crazy love story gives new light and I love Tarryn’s words. She truly does write such beautiful raw stories!!
