The Opportunist (Love Me With Lies, #1) - Tarryn Fisher My book of the month discussion/argument with Kenya Wright, Megan D. Martin, and D.T. Dyllin (wherein Megan and D.T. are wrong) about the Opportunist: http://www.fantasyfloozies.com/2013/07/book-of-month-chat-opportunist-by.html.

This is the June book of the month to be featured on my blog. It's not one I would have picked for myself.

I wasn't particularly a fan, but I do understand why a lot of people like it. For me, both the main characters were selfish jerks, and their backstories didn't come close to accounting for their flawed choices. All their problems would have been solved if they'd been honest with each other. I couldn't root for them because I didn't like them. They showed little respect for their relationship throughout, so I couldn't bring myself to care.

I liked the ending though.
