<—– Dirty Red (Love Me With Lies) IS LIVE RIGHT NOW!!!
Okay first, if you haven’t read The Opportunist, do not scroll down as this is me/us squeeing over tonight’s release of book #2 (Dirty Red). Instead, go check out my review of book #1 (and you’ll see by the crazy amount of comments that this book – now a series – REALLY affected us.
We LOVED it!! And loved to hate it.)
Tracy: we need a hint…please tell us Taryn is releasing Dirty Red today!!
Patricia: oh gawd it must be REALLY big if your loving being bratty…awwwwwwwww see i am excited
Maryse’s Book Blog: Tee heeeeee!!!! *zips up lips and throws away the key* Yes. I believe I may tell you today. But no more. I wanna bask in my sneakiness!
Krista: What a tease! Ugh!
Maryse’s Book Blog: Yes. Yes. I. Am. *grins maniacally*
Michelle: please let it be Dirty Red!!
Tammie: You know Santa is watching…you better watch being bratty…hahaha
Maryse’s Book Blog: Is the secret out yet??!!! No? *grins* hehehehehe Me <—- sneaky tease!!! Don’t be mad at me, Santa!
It’s OUT!! The secret is LIVE as we speak on Amazon. FINALLY!!!!! The crazy, angsty, turbulent saga continues!! Leah’s book is out, and we can all continue this crazy journey together. I have a feeling we’re gonna need each other, BIG time for this one, too.
Sherry: can’t wait to read it… I think ……
Lesley: I have a feeling Dirty Red will try to get us to like Leah…I’m sure shes not THAT bad..but still…I want Caleb with Olivia.
Now I know… I know. I understand. I do. I know we only want to be “Olivia” and live through her eyes, and you know… deal with the whole “Caleb” thing the way WE want (I can’t say more in case we have some newcomers that still haven’t experienced the awesome tumultous agony that is “The Opportunist”), but you know… who knows, right?
After all, both girls were guilty of some pretty opportunistic scheming and well, Caleb was no angel either. I know we felt pain and I know we want resolution. And I’m with you guys. I WAS Olivia for awhile and why oh WHY would I want to be Leah, now? But you know what? Enough time has passed and I’m ready to try something new. I’m ready to slip into new skin and continue living this agitation of a “love story”. I’m ready to experience it through new eyes, and ready to see where we are now. Where we are going? And I’m even more curious to see if I will change my mind. Comprehend. Maybe even *gasp* relate to… her. ACK!!! Right? I understand. Believe me, I do.
But guess what? I’ve been reading it. I got it just a teensy bit earlier today (that’s how I knew the “secret”) and I will say, Leah, so far, is who we know her as, but OMG I’m HOOKED!!!!! Tarryn’s writing is amazing. I am inside of Leah’s head and I can’t help but to be totally immersed and react to everything she thinks. I’m so delightfully uncomfortable, and she’s already made me cringe tons. She’s 100% believable! You may be in the “villain’s” head, but …. I dunno. I’m thinking this one has the potential to be just as exciting as book #1.
I am so relieved it is live so I can stop refreshing/stalking Amazon and really slip into Leah’s skin. I know. *sigh* What I do for the love of books. I even temporarily bond with the “hated” characters. It’s so tough. Not. SO far, I gotta say… Tarryn’s raw and impassioned writing and Leah’s unapologetic thought processes feel 100% real.
