After reading The Opportunist, I knew I had to read Dirty Red to get in Leah's head. Would she redeem herself? Was there going to be a part of her that I could relate to? Was there good in her?
"I was about a ten on the poison scale, If he needed venom, I could inject it directly into his neck."
And many of those questions were answered. I didn't think I would like hearing her POV because she just seemed too evil, but I did. She is definitely a messed up character with so much darkness in her. She's twisted and she will do about anything to get what she wants (but haven't we all done that). But does she even really want those things, or is it all just a facade she is trying to keep up? Still don't think I like her or the reasons for her lies. The one time I liked "seeing" her was with Sam the manny. He called her out, but he also seemed to push her out of her comfort zone and understand the darkness in her. Those 2 actually made some sort of sense. Caleb and her? I just don't get. And why would she force something when he repeatedly told her that he was still in love with Olivia. I wanted to scream at her and hit her myself. What could Caleb be thinking?
In the long run, this book and Leah's story needed to be told and to be included in Olivia and Caleb's story. Those 3 (and along with Noah) were a lifetime of love, hate and lies. She made it interesting, but yes, I still kind of hate her. Love to hate Leah.
"Love is illogical. You fall into it like a manhole. Then you're just stuck. You die in love more than you live in love."
I can't wait to see where these lies and love and manipulation will end with these people.
