Book Review Of “Thief” (Love Me With Lies #3) By Tarryn Fisher
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 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. (Synopsis and photo from Goodreads)
So It was time to finish this series up, it was just sitting on my Kindle for the past few weeks waiting to be read. It was actually a very fast read, I picked up last night, and finished it by this morning
It was by far the better book of the trilogy. I still found it to be very cheesy and generic in places. But I still did enjoy the read. These are the only Tarryn Fisher books that I have read, so I don’t know if this is her writing style, or it was because she was a very amateur writer at the time these were published? She has a huge fan base, so I was prepared to have my socks blown off, but sadly, they are still there.
I did love the tragedy of Caleb and Olivia. Lots of dramatics and soap oprea-ness to them. As far as the writing style, I didn’t really like it. Lots of hoaky cheesy lines, weird random talk of bondage, and the character of Leah is enough to make me pull my hair out. I feel like this book is a cross between New Adult and Erotica, which maybe that’s what it’s meant to be. I honestly do not know.
She has the kind of love that can stain your soul, make you beg not to have one, just to escape the spell she’s put you under. I’ve tried to break myself of her over and over, but it’s pointless. I’ve got more of her in my veins than blood- Tarryn Fisher
