Don’t judge a book by its title. Seriously.
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.
The Opportunist is the book version of Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl: Manipulative, scheming, evil and she knows it, and very very passionate. This book sucked me right in the middle of a whirlwind of absolutely sweet and passionate romance. There hasn’t a chapter where I’ve been bored, or seemed dragging.
I love how Olivia is smart, bitter and broken, and especially because she’s a scheming, lying, manipulative kickass female. It should also be noted that while she expends so much energy and effort into getting what she wants at the most backhanded of ways, it’s also a little contradicting how she cannot express how much she feels for Caleb until saying it became a weapon against him in itself.
Caleb, too, is so well-matched with Olivia. 🙂 I’m not going to leave a spoiler at this part. But know that I have gained so much awe for his character upon that little twist in the story. 🙂
Also, I don’t believe in true love anymore after this book. Or at least, the happy version of True Love. Suffice to say, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. All these evil things they do for the sake of love is my brand of poison. Very remarkable.
