Thief (Love Me With Lies #3) by Tarryn Fisher
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 married. Not when she got married. When life suddenly comes full circle Caleb must decide how how far he is willing to go to get the aloof and alluring Olivia Kaspen back. But for every action in life there is a consequence, and soon Caleb finds out that sometimes love comes at an unbearably high price.
I am a real life villain, truly. I drink sick amounts of Starbucks. Most of the time my hair smells like coffee. I was born in South Africa, and lived there for most of my childhood. I moved to Seattle just for the rain. Rome is my favorite place in the world so far, Paris comes in at a close second. I read and write more than I sleep. When I was eleven, I wrote an entire novel about runaway orphans, using only purple ink. I am addicted to Florence and the Machine and will travel to see concerts. I love scary movies and giraffes. I spend way too much time on Facebook. Meet you there?…

I missed a shot. People were looking at me like I’d gunned down a gym full of people instead of shooting an air ball. My mother was always teasing me, telling me that I didn’t take anything seriously. Maybe, she was right up until now. I was taking Olivia Kaspen seriously. All five feet two inches of her. She was mouthy and condescending and she never smiled, but I liked her. I wanted to give her something. So I missed the shot.
Is it true?
I looked up from my plate of pancakes. Desiree, one of the cheerleaders slid into the seat opposite me. She was wearing her makeup from the night before and my buddy, Kiel’s jersey. Why did girl’s do that? Eerised.
Is what true?
You missed the shot for a girl?
Where did you hear that? I pushed my plate away and took a sip of tea.
Everyone is talking about it. She smirked at me and ripped off a piece of my pancake, sliding it between her teeth.
I looked at her through narrowed eyes. I was having a hard time pulling off this charming act when my palms were sweating. Who are they saying I did it for? If people found out it was Olivia Iíd missed the shot for, things would get very uncomfortable for her.
Desiree sucked the syrup from her fingers. ìOh, there are rumors. Who knows if they’re true. You know how people can be.
I shrugged, trying to be nonchalant, but my shoulders were tensed.
Humor me, Des.
She pursed her lips and leaned forward. A pre law major. No one really knows who she is. Some people say they saw you talking to her before you missed the shot.
Maybe, my game was just off, I said, setting my mug down and standing up.
Desiree smiled up at me. Maybe. If you ask me, it’s kind of romantic.
Romantic? I repeated.
Yeah. She must be something.
I leaned down until both of my hands were flat on the table and Desiree and I were on eye level.
Does that really sound like something I would do, Des?
She looked at me for a long minute before shaking her head.
Well, there you have your answer.
I left wiping my palms on my pant legs. How many people had seen me speaking to Olivia? It was a stupid careless, but then I could have never anticipated her challenge. If things had gone my way, she would have agreed to a date for making the shot. Everyone would have walked away a winner aka. I would walked away the winner.
I couldn’t help but smile as I jogged down the stairs in front of the dining hall. Forget it. Girls rarely surprised me. I would have missed that shot five hundred times for a date with her.

I had the opportunity to meet Tarryn Fisher in September of 2012 at the TFEiC event in Chicago. It was fantastic, amazing, and unforgettable for my 1st signing. I hadn’t yet read The Opportunist at that time and I’ve been beating myself up for that ever since. Why? Because I would’ve completely freaked out in her presence over what the Love Me With Lies series had done to me so far (and at that time, that was only after ONE book–The Opportunist). Tarryn’s writing is like NO OTHER, let me repeat for you, NO OTHER!! Every thing IS spelled out for you, BUT IT’S NOT. Let me explain, she gives you details, in-depth details but at the same time you still have questions causing your imagination to run wild, causing you to stir up your own theories, causing you to go crazy until the next book comes out to find your answers only to have more questions after reading the next while still questioning the happenings from the last book and also leading to more theories risen from the 2nd! Did you just need to read that sentence more than once….EXACTLY!!! So that brings us to Dirty Red (#2). In this book we have Leah Smith’s POV aka Dirty Red. Here’s my review for Dirty Red (back in Dec 2012–wow, my reviews have changed since then): “Leah, Leah, Leah…you evil, conniving bitch!!! Being inside your head was intriguing while also being a thorough mind-fuck, and I still want to shove your fingers down the garbage disposal similar to how you disposed of the frozen vegetables.
I read each page sooo slowly as I didn’t want to miss a lick of what was going on and while also having to force my eyeballs to not slide to the bottom of each page to find out what was said next.
Tarryn you’re a freaking genius and how you word your stories gets me every time!! Tension, rage, hope, fear, disgust, awestruck, giddiness, and sadness are just SOME of the emotions your work gets built up inside me.” So, it a nut shell, you can see what Tarryn’s writing did to me after The Opportunist and Dirty Red, thoroughly blowing my mind and had me crawling the walls for Thief (#3). Sweet Baby Jesus was the wait for Thief agonizing, crazy, theory-driven, worth it—-HELL YES!!! In TRUE TARRYN FASHION, we find the completion of the Love Me With Lies series wrapped up in Thief (Caleb’s POV). I prepared for Thief’s release by re-reading The Opportunist and Dirty Red. Did this help prepare me for what was about to take place, sure, BUT it only left me with more questions because we all know you catch new details, words, and mannerisms you didn’t catch the FIRST, SECOND, THIRD, OR EVEN FOURTH time of reading it. So with that said, Tarryn is a master, bad ass writer because it’s almost as though her books take me to a different place after each time reading them, do I still want the same end result, OF COURSE, but how I get there is different EVERY. TIME. And this makes her a master in my mind!! Will your questions be answered in Thief, yes, will you still have theories, yes–because no life is perfect & this brings me to another reason I L-O-V-E Tarryn’s words. It’s for real, real, raw, truth, the lies, the hurt–it’s all fucking real. Why? Because we all live it Every. Fucking. Day! Life stabs at you sometimes, you find yourself asking “why”, feeling “life isn’t fair”, BUT we learn to make of it what we have. I want to share with you ONE of my 10,000 favorite quotes from Thief–I mean that literally because I highlighted (in airport blue of course) more than half of the book! Here it is: “Again,” “And again, and again, and again…”
I picked this quote not only for the context that it’s given in but also for what these words signify throughout the course of Olivia & Caleb’s journey. And with that, this is a series I will read AGAIN, and AGAIN, and AGAIN!! I love you, Tarryn and I LOVE being one of your crazy, passionate, nutty PLNs!! Give it a try people, NOW!!
