“I am Olivia Kaspen, and if I love something, I rip it from my life.”
With that sentence, needless to say I got hook from a minute I began to read it. Clearly, our narrator had issue about love that affected her relationship; however, the thing that caught my interest was what she did in the past that would make her to say that. After the story progressed, I knew that she made huge mistake in the past that cost her the love of her life. Now she planned to make up for the past and took opportunity that he has lost his memory.
It is just like they say that there are no good guy in the game of love … and characters in this book was built around that words. It created more depth in each character. At the same time, it also made you wonder what the real intention of their action was. Those elements made the story appeal to me as a reader. Not to mention, the writing style which was absolutely beautiful compare with many books in the same genre. The writer described everything like we were in a poetry garden.
‘The Opportunist’ had everything we asked for: story, characters and writing style. That is why it is the best for my summer reading.
