I bought this book some time ago because the reviews were good, but it took me quite some time to actually start reading it because the story line was... something. And now that I finished the book, I can tell I was right. Through the read I felt a myriad of emotions: sadness, exasperation, anger, confusion...

Basically, The Opportunist is the story of Olivia Kaspen, who takes advantage of her ex-boyfriends Caleb's state of Amnesia to try and win him back. In the beginning of the story, you get to know a sad and heart-broken Olivia, so you do somehow understand her motives and wish her to succeed in her plans. But through the flashbacks (as the book alternates between past and present), you find out what a manipulative person she is, and that this is actually not the first time she manipulates Caleb into her life. And you would think that this manipulation is enough. Well it's not, because she keeps acting like a real bitch until she finally gets what she deserves. And more, since she will be played at her own games.

I am not fainthearted, but this story was really intense. Reality-factor (as in "real-life possibility") is probably not at the top, but the read was really suspenseful. This book has no steamy scenes and it is obviously not your average chick flick romance. It is a story with a twisted plot and wicked writing.

I am already onto the next part of the Love Me With Lies Series, and I really recommend both books. I am just giving this 4 stars, but I would give it 4.5 if I could!
