Love, love, love this series!
After getting Olivia's side of the story in 'The Opportunist', it was a change of pace to follow it with Leah's side of the story. I absolutely hated Leah in the first book, even if I sympathized with her situation. So, I wasn't sure whether or not I would be able to enjoy the story from her perspective.
Oddly enough, I did enjoy it immensely, but I'm having a hard time explaining why I did. This is perhaps the first time that I've read a story where I despised the main character from start to finish. Not only did Leah fail to redeem herself, but she became even more despicable as the book progressed. This was truly one wicked woman! I rooted against her the entire time. Yet, I loved every minute of this screwed up story. How bizarre is that
In some ways, I did come to see Leah as a flawed human. I felt bad for her for having such a terrible upbringing. I also pitied her for her undying devotion to Caleb. It was just sad to see the lengths she was willing to go to for a man that was clearly in love with another woman.
However, every time I began to feel too much for Leah, another one of her conniving actions would be revealed. I could not believe some of the manipulative stunts that she pulled. Olivia has nothing on this lady in the crazy department.
Nonetheless, I couldn't pull myself away from this story. I loved every sordid detail. This twisted love triangle has become my new obsession. On to book 3!
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.
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.
