The Opportunist by Tarryn Fisher
Star Review - 4 Stars


Olivia Kaspen is a sharp tongued manipulator used to always getting what she wants. With just one exception-Caleb Drake, the one she foolishly let slip away. After a chance encounter brings Caleb back into her life, Olivia finds herself wanting a second chance with her first love, and asking herself how far she is willing to go to get him back.  Her only problem is a red head named Leah, Caleb's new love. Olivia must fight for what was once hers, and in the process discover that sometimes love falls short of redemption.


The moment I laid my eyes on the first page, I was hooked into their story full of lies, deceit, betrayal, and love.  The author is an exceptional story teller and she has written this book in a unique way 

"I am Olivia Kaspen, and if I love something I rip it from my life. Not intentionally... not unintentionally either."

Olivia has had a difficult life and has a lot of emotional trauma that stands in here way through out the book.  In college she met Caleb and fell head over heels in love with him.  She couldn’t admit it to him or herself and she did what she does best..she walked away.

3 years later we find Olivia running into Caleb at a music store.  She is shocked to see how calm he is about running into her, and later finds out he has no idea who she is due to having amnesia.  Olivia thinks this is her chance to get things back to how they were before and she is hoping he won’t remember how bad things had ended.

"After three long years, I have what I want and it isn't real. He doesn't know who I am, and if he did, he wouldn't be sitting in my living room... He doesn't remember me. How could you forget someone you loved even if I did rip his heart to shreds?"

But of course you can’t always get your way.  Caleb has a life that he's built since she left and a girlfriend now too, Leah, who is determined not to lose the man she now loves.  Can Olivia do what it takes to win Caleb back or will she be able to move on? 

"You can only give your heart away once; after that, everything else will chase your first love."
