The Opportunist by Tarryn Fisher

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.

Initial Thoughts:
While perusing my Goodreads for new book suggestions, I saw a lot of people had given this book 5 stars, so I gave it a go.

The Pros:
The psychological aspect of this book was what kept me reading.

The author really demonstrated how every choice you make affects your future. Olivia has a lot of her choices thrown back in her face.

That's about all I can come up with for Pros.

The Cons:
What the hell is wrong with Olivia? And Leah? There was not a sane girl to be found in this book.

Also, what is wrong with Caleb? I still can't understand his motives.

The flashbacks got confusing after awhile.

There wasn't enough of a plot line for me to even consider liking this book.

The Wrap Up: 1/5
Probably the only book this year that I really didn't like. It was just too effed up for me to even remotely understand what was going on. 

Favorite Quote:
I didn't have one.
