  1. I would like to write a novel that every, single person loves, but not even J.K Rowling could do that Instead, I try to write stories that pull on people s emotions I believe that sadness is the most powerful emotion, and swirled with regret the two become a dominating force I love villains Three of my favorites are Mother Gothel, Gaston and the Evil Queen who all suffered from a pretty wicked case of vanity like me I like to make these personality types the center of my stories I love rain, Coke, Starbucks and sarcasm I hate bad adjectives and the word smolder If you read my book I love you If you hate my book I still love you, but please don t be mean to me I m half badass, half cry baby.

  13. One of the most addicting books I ve read Be prepared, you will not be able to put this down I think that after the first time you give your heart away, you never get it back The rest of your life is just you pretending that you still have a heart.After reading a review of The Opportunist a while back I had planned on staying far away from this story It sounded like drama and frustration, and I have little patience for either But after my trusted friend Arlene badgered encouraged me to read this [...]

Dgfsethuyfawguijasdf.That epilogue almost broke me.So I liked this book, but not as much as everyone else I think I read it a little too late This would ve worked PERFECTLY for me back in 2012, when I was really into this kind of stories But nevertheless, it was GOOD I really liked Olivia And I really liked Caleb, although view spoiler I KNEW FROM THE BEGINNING THAT HE WAS LYING I knew he didn t lose his memory And I wasn t spoiled, I just KNEW I felt very smug when the big revelation came, I wa [...]

  17. 4.5 Stars When three of my GR friends were so emotionally drained after reading this book and couldn t rate it, or couldn t even review right away, I had to get to the bottom of it.diately I dropped everything and even put on hold a decent book I was already reading to find out Boy, did I ever.Alfred Hitchcock would have had a field day with this little psychological thriller, let me tell you The camera angles alone would easily have been one of the main characters in his movie adaptation But, a [...]

  18. My nostrils are still emitting remnants of smoke from my seething anger at the characters of this book Sure, Ms Fisher intended a story about flawed characters specifically about a ruthlessly manipulative woman named Olivia who would do anything for the love of her life the playing womanizing amnesia diagnosed Caleb But again, which character isn t flawed Aren t they all are But the things Olivia did to feed her whims are too heartless, too mean to even fit her supposedly blemished character a s [...]

  19. A story of love, deceit and obsession A girl so consumed with one man, she will do everything in her power to keep him.Toxic A word that sums up, Olivia and Caleb s relationship They re story is addictive, frustrating but utterly unputdownable Olivia is a broken girl hiding behind a tough facade When she meets Caleb, it s blown to pieces But she pushes him away, because she s learnt that letting someone into your heart can lead to pain, because when they eventually leave, you re left alone So pr [...]

I am Olivia Kaspen, and if I love something I rip it from my life Not intentionally not unintentionally either.When I first read the blurb, I wasn t 100% sure that I wanted to read this The whole premise is fascinating but I had already prejudged and tried Olivia and found her wanting before even giving it a chance She s not your regular every day heroine In fact, how do you come to terms with the fact that the heroine of your novel is actually also the villain of the piece, the Cruella DeVille [...]

  22. These characters are deranged Mental, Psychotic, CUCKOOo_o I found myself with my eyes wide a time or two while reading this.I am stuck between hating and loving this book I really liked the weirdly dark intense manipulating drama, but at times it was just so much that it was unbelievable This did not feel like a romance to me, it felt like a psychological thriller lolOlivia is a manipulative, broken liar She is self proclaimed as desperately wicked She is a huge bitch and she knows it She wasn [...]

  23.

  29. I still don t know what to write for a reviewThis book is really magnetic The story is gripping.The voice is cynical and darkly alluring.The plot and storyline are, at times, brilliant But this book is not a romance and should not be read as such It is a cautionary tale about gah, I can t tell you what its about Not one thing would be ok to tell you in advance I can say the decisions and actions of the protagonist will mystify and frustrate and or sicken you I could not put it down as the twists [...]
