I’ve read most of Tarryn Fisher’s books, but her Love Me With Lies series still remains my absolute favorite. And even though I read it years ago, the quotes still give me chills The first 2 books are also currently on sale, so if you love some angsty romance, now is the time to grab it!

“You are the only woman I know how to love. The only woman I want to love.”
I would like to start my review with a question: Why is everyone in this book such an asshole?
My next question: Why did I love them anyway? Does loving a bunch of assholes make me an asshole?
I don’t think I’ve ever read a book before where I hated every single main character. Yes, you read that right. I hate them all. Including Caleb. BUT (before you kill me) I will say I also have never read a book where as much hate as I had, I LOVED them just as much. So yes…. I hated them. I loved them. And I hated myself for loving them.
“You can only give your heart away once; after that, everything else will chase your first love.”
And even though I didn’t understand the majority of the decisions any of these lunatics made, I still found myself COMPLETELY intrigued and invested in this story and was not able to put it down.
I still found myself gasping, and screaming, and getting that giddy feeling in my chest whenever Caleb said something sweet or romantic:
“Can I be your favorite girl?”
“You already are, Duchess.”
UGHH that nickname.
“And my personal favorite, your lips.” He smiled as a pink flush crept up my neck. “Full and sensual, puckered, and always turned down at the corners. They kind of make me want to kiss them until they smile.”
And I was pleasantly surprised with how funny this was. All of Olivia’s inner thoughts, especially when it came to Leah, were hysterical.
“She is the devil’s spawn, evil, with red hair and motives as big as Ursula the sea witch’s ass.” –that quote right there had me laughing so hard I almost choked on my drink.
I fell in love with Tarry Fisher’s writing and I just love books that are so different than what I have read in the past. Books that frustrate and anger you, and make you sigh and then want to weep and then laugh all at the same time. Books like this one.
“Caleb was like a hurricane that swept through my life, stirring up things inside of me that I never knew existed.
He is a longing I will never cure.”
I am so enraptured with these characters and this story. Brilliantly and flawlessly written.
Other favorite quotes:
“I didn’t choose her,” his voice breaks. “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’ve got more of her in my veins than blood.”
“Let me carry you out. I’ll never let you touch the ground. I was made to carry you, Olivia. You’re fucking heavy with all of your guilt and self-loathing. But, I can do it. Because I love you.”
“I wanted it — that was the surprising part. Selfish, self-centered Caleb Drake loved a girl so much he could already feel himself changing to accommodate her needs. I fell. Hard. For the rest of this life and probably the next. I wanted her — every last inch of her stubborn, combative, catty heart.”
