Note to Self

Love is patient; love is kind.
Love doesn’t boast or brag.
There’s no arrogance in love;
it’s never rude, crude, or indecent-it’s not self absorbed.
Love isn’t easily upset.
Love doesn’t tally wrongs.
Love trusts, hopes, and endures no matter what.
Love will never become obsolete.
I’ll fight for her.

Caleb Drake never got over his first love. Not when he got married. Not when she got married. When life suddenly comes full circle Caleb must decide how how far he is willing to go to get the aloof and alluring Olivia Kaspen back. But for every action in life there is a consequence, and soon Caleb finds out that sometimes love comes at an unbearably high price.

:My Review:

Thief by Tarryn Fisher is the third and final book in her Love Me With Lies series and I must say it’s a series I’m sad to see end! In this final installment we FINALLY get inside Caleb’s head. We get his side of the events that took place within The Opportunist and Dirty Red (I still hate Leah BTW). This is by no means a simple re-telling of the previous two stories; Tarryn gives us a completely fresh perspective through Caleb’s eyes. We find out EVERYTHING! We find out why he lied about his amnesia, why he ended up marrying that God awful Leah, (ugh I can’t even type her name without wanting to throw up in my mouth a little bit) and most importantly, we learn just how much Caleb truly, undeniably, and unconditionally loves Olivia. I mean, hearing him talk about his feelings for her literally took my breath away. I mean he deep down from the bottom of his heart loves her and Tarryn’s writing makes you FEEL that love. 

“I want your babies, and your anger, and your cold blue eyes … “ I choke on my words and I am the one to look away. I bring my gaze back to her face and realize that if I can’t convince her now, I’m never going to be able to. “I want to go on anniversary dinners with you, I want to wrap Christmas presents with you. I want to fight with you about stupid things and then hold you down in my bed and make it up to you. I want to have more cake batter fights and camping trips. I want your future, Olivia. Please come back to me.”

 this made me lose it, I didn’t even bother with tissues, I just let the tears run down my face. He loved her so much despite her faults, hangups and issues. I was begging her to come back to him.

Like the previous books Thief is also told in the alternating past/present, we still have “She who shall not be named” trying to cause trouble to keep Olivia and Caleb apart but there’s also another character trying to prevent them from being together…that character pissed me off royally!  I kept yelling at my Kindle for them to mind their place and give up already and just leave. Every time said character traveled I secretly wished for the plane to go down and they’d vanish never to be seen again. Didn’t happen 😐 there is a secret we find out about from Caleb and Olivia’s past that made my heart break for both of them and we learn just who Estella’s father is!
In the end I did get an ending I was happy with. At first I was a happy with a little “awww man” mixed in but then I thought about it for a few minutes and I realized I was “awww man” no more. This series ended perfectly for me <3

We are gonna be okay. That’s what happens when two people are meant. You just work it out until you are okay. We make love every single day — no matter what. She is the only woman I’ve seen that gets more beautiful with age. She is the only woman I see.”

P.S. If you’re a crier or get into your stories when you read, keep tissues handy. I sobbed through Caleb’s re-telling of the bumpy parts of their 10 year relationship, feeling his love for Olivia and his heartache every time things didn’t work out for them. 

:Lorraine’s Review:

Thief – 4 gut-wrenching starsHmm, how to write this review without spoilers as the reader needs to experience
the emotional roller coaster ride on their own.
This has to be the most depressing and heart wrenching love story I have ever read.
I don’t know how I finished it without having a break-down myself.
They say timing is everything but for Olivia and Caleb time had passed them by many
times over during a ten-year period.
“Maybe this is finally our time. Maybe”
The story is in Caleb’s POV and alternates between past and present giving the reader a
glimpse of the first two books The Opportunist and Dirty Red where their lives are
condemned to live in pain and torture.
“No more fighting-not for her, or with her, or with myself. I am so sad.”
Torture, as their love for one another leads to a lifelong obsession
of want and need as a series of lies and misunderstandings always seems to get in the
way of what the heart and body need.
I wanted to cry so many times, I would have to close my kindle and take a
deep breath.
The author’s writing style is like no other I can remember reading. I felt like I was falling
into a black hole, you know like when you’re dreaming of falling only you never reach
the bottom and you awaken startled. I don’t have the words to describe the
 photo couple-via-depositphotos_edited-1_zpsff21dd28.jpg
sadness and then anger I felt toward Caleb and Olivia, each their own worst enemy.
Just when I thought, there might be a chance for the love/lust couple…
“This is the last time I’m going to say this, so listen carefully. You and I are happening.
No one is keeping us apart again. Not Noah or Cammie, and least of all fucking Leah.
You are mine. Do you understand me?”
Zap, the author adds another layer of pain.
Baggage, a word so innocent until you use it to describe the other lives that have
infiltrated the orange grove of Caleb and Olivia’s destiny.

Like an old tarnished penny they keep turning up to destroy any chance of a future together.

Endings can go either way, they can leave you hurting or wanting more, this one
left me speechless.

:About Tarryn:
I am a real life villain, truly. I drink sick amounts of Starbucks. Most of the time my hair smells like coffee. I was born in South Africa, and lived there for most of my childhood. I moved to Seattle just for the rain. Rome is my favorite place in the world so far, Paris comes in at a close second. I read and write more than I sleep. When I was eleven, I wrote an entire novel about runaway orphans, using only purple ink. I am addicted to Florence and the Machine and will travel to see concerts. I love scary movies and giraffes. I spend way too much time on Facebook. Meet you there?
