In Chapter 15, Caleb gets Leah to admit that she “did” do something something to do with her sister?
I wasn’t sure what she was admitting to besides getting pregnant on purpose, there was another thing she admitted to which seemed to seal the deal in his mind against her. I’d had the book on audio, so I prob missed what they were referring to in one of the past tense chapters. They’re on the beach.

Book Review – Dirty Red by Tarryn Fisher
The Opportunist was easily one of the best books I’ve read this year or any other year for that matter and it made me become a huge fan of Tarryn Fisher as an author. So, why would I have second thoughts about starting th Sooooo So, why would I have second thoughts about starting the sequel to one of my all time favorite books you might ask?
Well, because this time the sequel was written in the point of view of a characters I truly despise She’s a wife, a mother, a friend, a sister and she pretty much sucks at being either of those. What she cares more than anything about is to keep hur husband, Caleb, for herself and for that she is willing to do anything.
I have lied and cheated. I have been sexy and meek, fierce and vulnerable. I have been everything but myself. The story also introduces a new character, Sam, the “manny”. His honesty and straightforwardness were really refreshing and I liked that he wasn’t afraid to speak his mind to Leah.
They scenes between them were some of my favorites and it was interesting to watch how their “friendship” evolved. The story alternated between the present and the past and most of Leah’s inner monologues consisted of her recalling all the events that happened in The Opportunist. Some of the her inner monologues really showed her selfish and immature side that made me think I will not go into detail, but some of the things she did as a new mom were truly awful view spoiler [Who drops their newborn at a daycare for so many hours and then forgets to pick them up!?!?
This book also taught me that Caleb isn’t at all as perfect as he always seemed to be. He isn’t the poor victim. He knew what he was doing all along and he took advantage of both Leah and Olivia’s unconditional love, especially of Leah’s, to get what he wanted.
Looking for the Panacea: Nara’s Review: Dirty Red by Tarryn Fisher
It made me finally see him as the strategist he really is. What I did like about him, was that finally began seeing Leah for what gy really is and that he stood up for his daughter the way he did. She was only in a small amount of scenes. But then off course whenever she did make an appearance, atrryn always reminded me again of how much I loved her character by rirty Leah in her place with eed effective or snarky comment When they’re together, it’s like putting a hurricane and a tornado in the same room – you can feel the tension.
I have to fusher, all I want is for them to finally be together without either of them playing games or making up lies to get what they want. That is off course, as long as Leah doesn’t come between them again By the end of the story I was somehow starting to feel sorry for Leah, after all she did give up everything she had to try and keep a man to who she knew she would always be a second choice.
And I was actually starting to not hate her anymore. But thenoff course, she had to go ahead and drop another bomb, that made me go It res us harryn some very interesting insights on how Caleb and Leah’s relationship developed but other than that the book didn’t teach us a lot of new things, it was mostly about Leah’s feelings.
I think the author really deserves credit for deciding to write a book based on such an easy-to-hate character and then still making readers able to love reading it so much! View all 88 comments. Dec 22, Tough Critic Book Reviews rated it really liked it. Now that I’ve been thoroughly mind f–ked, I need a cigarette I’m going to let y’all in on a little secret. I was really hoping that I would, but who really gives a damn about Leah? I sure as hell don’t.
Since when does the resident bitch get her own book? I wanted to stomp my foot like tarrjn petulant child, throw something that would make a nice shatter noise and yell Begging the entire time for a few Caleb and Olivia scraps; hoping Tarryn would just throw me something Despite my not so slight reservations I decided to give the author a chance to prove me wrong.
If anyone could manipulate me to enjoy something I hate If anyone taryrn get inside my head and change my very emotions to work with the story instead of against it If anyone could gift me something I didn’t even know I wanted This is what I wanted. I just didn’t know it yet.
Where The Opportunist was more about angst and emotional bipolarism, Dirty Red was about manipulation and it felt amazing. I read this book straight through without taryrn, without for one second being detached, uninterested, or without feeling. One of my favorite things about Tarryn Fisher is the vagueness of her writing.
We don’t get every conversation or tiresome detail. She gives just enough for the development of an emotionally charged and fiwher plot, but at the dlrty time allows the reader to develop their own details, draw their own conclusions. We are given the freedom, in our minds, to create our own version of Dirty Red I didn’t expect I didn’t expect that.
I didn’t expect to find so much humor in Dirty Red. I didn’t expect to fall so much more in love with Caleb. I didn’t expect to find answers to so many questions only to create new ones.
I didn’t expect to love this book so damn much. Tarryn Fisher once again proves that a book isn’t about loving it or hating it. It’s about the emotional journey the book has the potential to take you on. The potential it has to make you feel.
