5 massive stars
This book moved me, shook me, and knocked me on my butt! I reread this book in preparation for Dirty Red, which is rumored to come out before Christmas! I am a mess! What a maddening, romantic ride!!
As I reread this book....
I expected to be angry.
I expected to feel love.
I expected to feel sad.
I did not
expect to cry and feel this depth of shock all over again.
Even though Olivia did some pretty horrible things, I still loved her. I loved her self-centeredness. I loved her, despite the lies that spewed from her mouth. My heart broke for her. For years, she hated herself for what she did. She couldn't forgive herself. She lived in a self-imposed prison.
I’m sorry I’ve been such a horrible person,” I say pressing my face against his chest. “I’m so sorry.”
“What are you talking about?” he grabs my chin lifting my face to look at him. “You’re a good person.”
“No, no I’m not,” I shake my head violently from side to side. “I’m desperately wicked.”
Olivia and Caleb's love for each other made me just feel. I won't look at airport blue, pressed pennies, and camping trips the same way.
I loved Caleb. His love for Olivia is timeless and deep.
I loved him with everything in me. He taught me who I was, something I never would have known, without his deft handling of my personality.
“Olivia,” he begins. I look at him in mock surprise. Then suddenly he is serious…or he seems so. I catch my breath. “You belong with me. Do you believe me?” I feel my sweat glands open.
Holding my breath, I nod. This is supposed to be for laughs, but it doesn’t sound funny, it sounds like something I will be replaying years from now—when I am sitting alone in a room full of cats.
I will keep my mouth shut about her. Just know that I am not a fan of the red beast. [b:Dirty Red|15832316|Dirty Red (Love Me With Lies, #2)|Tarryn Fisher|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1364298887s/15832316.jpg|21568137] will be in Leah's POV. I guess it's only fair to hear her side.
