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 marrie

At 89% (loc 3059), Olivia talks of that fateful day when she decided to go back to the music store to talk to Caleb as opposed to leaving with Dobson.

Woah. I'm still reeling here.

Caleb and Olivia have one of the most heart-breakingly dysfunctional and yet achingly beautiful love stories I've ever read.

They had an irreplaceable love proved unbreakable even by a lifetime of mistakes. They were destructive, made the wrong choices and paid the painful price for their mistakes but you couldn't help but root for them every step of the way.  Their journey was an intense, heartbreaking, non-stop roller coaster filled

I loved this book. I hated this book. I loved this book. I hated this book. I loved this book...

Okay, you get it. Tarryn Fisher can mess with your mind like no other. Her writing is incredible. Her characters are unforgettable. No surprise, this was a 5 star read for me. I would give it more than 5 stars if I could... SO many feelings SO many emotions. I’ve struggled to write this review, collecting your thoughts on a book like this isn’t easy, but here ya go!

Thief was easily my most anticipated book of 2013. All year I've been waiting for this third and final part of the Love Me With Lies-series, and I can honestly say it was 100% worth the wait!

”Maybe this is finally our time. Maybe.”


After reading Dirty Red, I religiously stalked Tarryn Fischer’s Face Book status’ regarding her process in writing the Thief. When Tarryn hit the publish button I actually froze. Weirdly, my fear had me terrified to start if you can you believe it? I was so damn invested in Olivia and Caleb and what awaited me in these 234 pages that the conclusion both excited and terrified me…I kid you not!

Tarryn’s writing is PURE BRILLIANCE!! Caleb’s pov was ABSOLUT

In this third book in the series, we finally get to hear Caleb's side of the story. I have been continually amazed by this author's ability to retell the same story over and over, albeit from a different vantage point, and keep it feeling fresh and new. Just like in the previous books, 'Thief' is divided into past and present timeframes, with the present portions revealing new events as they transpire.

After reading 'Dirty Red', I was especially interested to see how Caleb could've loved a woman

To give this book a 5* rating was one of the easiest decidions I ever made!

This trilogy was one of several firsts for me ...

Opportunist made me pull my first all-nighter and made me cry over a book [as an audlt] for the first time.

Dirty Red was the first book I loved where I loathed the main character.

Thief was the first book that made me realize that doing the right thing isn't always the best thing and being a little selfish isn't always such a bad thing.

This was such an emotional journey

This book scared me to death... I mean, come on, Tarryn Fisher is known as crazy and unpredictable, so I was VERY worried for the fate of her characters and I had no idea how the book would end. 😱😂
'Thief' is written from Caleb's point of view. The plot continues the second book, which ends with Leah's crazy discovery. 💥

I highlighted SO much of this book, but I don't want to post my favorite quotes on here :(. I want to wrap them up and keep them to myself so that I can open them on a dark gloomy day and read them over and cry.

I do this thing when I read, and I wish I wouldn't, but I do, where I analyze the crap out of sentences, words, phrases and the way they're used. It's a strange little habit I've developed over the years. Sometimes when I read, I find myself doing that more than enjoying the actual story

Dropping the rating from 4 to 3 because Caleb doesn't deserve 4 stars :P
Can't believe Leah's book was more... Idk? Gripping? Or it just had something more to it than his book.

Okay, maybe I am a nutcase along with Olivia, Leah and Caleb because I am so addicted...

Finally we get into Caleb's head and after Leah's book I welcomed that with open arms.

“How many times can a heart be broken before it is beyond mend?” I DON'T KNOW TARRYN FISHER HOW MANY TIMES ARE YOU WILLING TO BREAK IT?! My heart felt broken in a few different ways, but by the ending it felt like it started to mend.

Caleb is fighting to win Olivia back. Thief takes us back through the journey of their story
Wow, this book felt like the end of a journey. And in a certain way it was: a completely awesome and f***ed up journey.
And I loved every single second of it.


Life isn’t always pretty. Sometimes it’s amazing and other times it screws with us and laughs in our face.
Sometimes it takes us on journeys that we never asked or even imagined.
And sometimes life puts someone in our paths, that nothing will ever be able to remove them from there. Sometimes we find someone who becomes our fate.

Good news is, I finished the series. Bad news is, I could totally give this 1 Star and not feel bad about it. However, since Ms. Fisher slipped me a literary roofie that made me feel compelled to read all three of these damn books she gets a bonus star. You know, what? Screw it. 1 Star. This was a waste . . .

Caleb and Olivia met under a tree 10 years ago and they have been obsessed with each other ever since that day. This is the third and final book in this messy love affair and it was a GOOD one to end this series on! This isn't a pretty little

So many conflicting FEEEELINGS! *sigh*

Everyone knows by now what a crazy cluster fuck of awesome this series is. The characters are imperfect and flawed. They lie, cheat, steal, manipulate, and are extremely intense. It’s what I’ve loved about the Love Me With Lies series, it’s bold, it’s different, it’s smart. (Btw, you probably shouldn’t read this review if you haven’t read The Opportunist and Dirty Red)

"Eventually." She sighs. "That word is so us, isn't it? Eventually, you'll tell me you're faking your amnesia. Eventually, I'll tell you that I'm pretending not to know you. Eventually, we'll come back together, fall apart, come back together."

That quote sums up this whole series....

Wow!!! This book was amazing!! I'm really going to miss the characters and this series. I feel like I'm saying goodbye to a close friend who I will never see again. I just want to cry ='(

I absolutely adore the Love Me With Lies series! I went into this book knowing that Caleb's point of view was going to be epic and all I can say is that Tarryn Fisher completely surpassed my already high expectations for the final book in Olivia and Caleb's story.

Since I don't want to give too much of this story away and spoil it for anyone, I will say that Thief continues where Dirty Red left off.

Dear Tarryn,

Now I know that you like to evoke emotion in your books...and you have, you have :)

I know that a lot of your readers have felt giddy, frustrated, have wanted to reach into books and slap people, have felt disappointed, angry, hopeful....

If it is not to much to ask...we need the HEA, we crave the HEA, please do not shatter me...please bring them together (preferably without hurting the Hot Ghandi to badly and feel free to CrUsH Leah).

As a fan of the Love Me With Lies series, I had been anticipating the release of Thief with much excitement. I had high expectations for this book and it didn't disappoint. If you are familiar with Tarryn Fisher's writing, you know she has raised the bar for all indie contemporary writers.
Thief ties up all the loose ends for this series, and Caleb's point of view is enlightening and intense. Definitely a hard book to put down; you will devour this book in one sitting.


After a messy divorce,
“Forget all you know — I said to myself. This is the one you belong with. I don’t know how I knew that. Maybe our souls touched underneath that tree. Maybe I decided to love her. Maybe love wasn’t our choice. But when I looked at that woman, I saw myself differently. And it wasn’t in a good light. Not a thing would keep me from her. And that could make a person do things they never thought themselves capable of. What I felt for her scared the hell out of me. It was a consuming obsession.”
