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.
The Opportunist by Tarryn Fisher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars,
I know I’ve picked this book because I know how different Tarryn’s stories can be!
I was about to know how different and challenging read I would get. I try not to read anything about it before I choose the book.
As a human, I hope for a sweet end, not happy ever after but satisfying and real, mostly because I don’t want to feel that lonely in the dark .
This one almost killed me, seriously!
I’ve finished the book a month ago, only now I have the courage to talk about it.
I have to tell you that I do not cry very often and never for a book. I’ve changed.
We grow up seeking forgiveness or redemption. We have to carry our mistakes, our scars…but with time the pain will fade, but no, not now…not happening!
Shed some tears as part of a release sensation… it feels good now.
Awoke from a nightmare that became only a bad dream.
Only Tarryn’s moments keep me on the edge, make me experience a turmoil of feelings I can’t hide! If the characters are so much alike me, I’m sure I need some kind of therapy after.
Thank God there is a sequel, because I need to know!
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I need to read Caleb’s POV to make some sense, review later…
Ok, I’m ready! No I’m not.
I wasn’t… When I was told, the author really wrote about this awful character named, Leah. Saying her name, tastes nasty.
Yeah that one! Red head, stupid, need to grow up kid with some twisted plans and
plots to hold on to Caleb,the love of her life…okay love of her fairy tale…
Does she knows what love is, by the way? And at what cost…
I was surprise how hollow Caleb’s and Leah’s relationship was. By Olivia’s eyes
in the first book, it was great…she was willing to sacrifice… but for this?
I was a wreck! Very emotional! I didn’t know if I’d love them or if I’d hate them!
I didn’t know whom to believe.
I felt like Caleb for a while, yeah probably needed the amnesia too! Insert dark period here… in real life I was numb.
I was not having my HEA was I?
No! Of course not, I needed to bleed or have a brain meltdown first!
Caled did what he had to do, he made a mess earlier so he had to fix it. A baby on the way well, got to stand up for the family, right!? He was clever but blind holding that baby… Family… The name Seth, Caleb’s brother saved me from all the pain.
I was praying for a break up, for something!
A glimpse of happiness. So twisted, mostly, between romance reads we hope for the good guys to get back together, right?
This time I wanted chaos.
I was thrilled there’s was another book in this series to swallow!
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was torture!
Torture to find two people who belong together, in between books, get emotionally and physically distant with so many walls they’ve created for themselves, nowhere near to find each other again…What a complicated maze!
Hmm… Why am I not sure about this? I was afraid of what I wanted.
My little heart didn’t like surprises at this time…
Broke into little pieces and when it was time to pick them up and glue them back together, it got stolen. Not the HEA I was dreaming about, although I was cautious.
But that’s what amazes me!
No loose ends between the past and back to the present moments. Boy she can write! Tarryn Fisher does it! She’s amazing! Incredible!
She gives you more than you thought it was possible!
And still feels right, perfect… In a twisted kind of way!
I seriously recommend this series!
Can’t wait for what she writes next!
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Can’t think right now… I have no words, I’m cold and I don’t want to feel, Senna broke my heart! I’ve finished listening to Mud Vein last night and it hurts.
Couldn’t sleep, I thought I would listening last chapter again to understand a little more, because my reaction was that I wasn’t listening it right! Did I get it wrong?
I kept going into the dark. yes Tarryn you did warn us about it, I’ve feared what words deeply mean. If you’ve been there, than you will know.
I liked the silent, I heard you clearly.
Amazing mind and writing!
This was a deep and very complex journey, learning the hardest way, the dark side of love, the truth in it. I can’t say more about this book. I don’t want to spoil it for you! If you didn’t read it yet than you’ll have to explore it, going in blind.
Everyone will read Mud Vein in a different way, as we do experience things and feelings in a different perspective. The truth in ourselves.
I highly recommend this book, but be prepared, it will punch you in the gut!
Text to re-read, knowing the author way of writing, my heart needs to be strong enough!!!
Next is Author Colleen Hoover.
