Greed Review


Greed
By: Fisher Amelie

Gather ‘round, love, because I want you. I want what you have, I want what you don’t have, I want more of what I already have. I want. But if you so much as ask for something in return, go ahead and walk away. Know if you want to play in my world, it’s every man for themselves and the weak become mine. Leeches will be obliterated because I make it my job to destroy them. I protect what’s mine and I take what’s yours…because that’s what I do. I want.

My story will not endear me to you and, frankly, I could care less if it does because I’m in this for the money and nothing else. There’s nothing redeeming about me. I’m a corrupt, money hungry, immoral asshole from Los Angeles. I’m every man’s worst nightmare and every girl’s fantasy.

I’m Spencer Blackwell…And this is the story about how I went from the world’s most coveted guy to the guy no one wanted around and why I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.




"In the light of day, when our adrenaline wears off, we'll discover that all we truly feared was the unknown."

There is so much to say and I just don't know where to start. First, Fisher Amelie is one AMAZING author. The characters she creates are real, troubled but deep down so good at heart that it is such a pleasure whenever you get to read about them. Her first novel in the Seven Deadly series, Vain, was a mind blowing, roller coaster ride that left me breathless for days after. So much the same for the second installment, Greed.

I had no idea Fisher even had another book out until I saw it on the Amazon website and of course I 1-clicked it because I knew it was going to be good. What I got though was so much more then good. I read it in one sitting. I stayed up till 2 in the morning to finish it. I cried. Literally. I also feel in love with everything about Greed so sit tight and listen to why I think this book deserves my "MUST READ" stamp of approval.

Spencer wants everything. He has money to just up and fly to Vegas on a private jet, spend thousands of dollars on one outfit, and waste a hundred thousand dollar bottle of Cognac with just a shrug of his shoulders. You don't really hate Spence at the beginning but you for sure despise him. How could he do such things? You want to slap him in jail and be on your way to let him deal with his problems. When an unexpected surprise shows up, however, to protect the one thing he does love, he packs up and moves far away to a ranch in Montana. What he didn't expect was to literally fall head over heels in love.
"The full sight of her nearly blew me over. I felt this punch in my gut and chest I'd never felt before, not even with Sophie. My hand went to my heart as if I could stop its pounding. This girl was beyond stunning"
 Can I please be Cricket? She was an amazing character filled with so much love, life, joy and attitude that I seriously want to be her. She grew up on the ranch and knows everything there is to the ranching lifestyle but she craves more. Being with her childhood crush for so long has found her desire for intimacy a little lacking. From the minute she meets Spencer she if overwhelmed with desire but what to do when already in a serious relationship?? She has to be the good girl and not fall for him so both Spencer and Cricket create walls to protect themselves, but walls are meant to crumble right?

AND BOY DO THEY CRUMBLE GOOD!!! I seriously will rate this book with the best sexually desire I have ever read. For a new adult book at least (not including romance genre). Spencer is hot as all hell and desire just pours of him in waves. I don't think I could ever stand not touching him the way Cricket does. She's got some woman power man. I love that Spencer knew exactly what he wanted and he had the balls enough to fight for it. He never backed down which made every encounter with Cricket filled with passion and longing. So much so that it truly hurt to see the pain that he was going through. He has never felt this way for any one and the only thing he can think of is being with her.  
"Just say one tiny word, Cricket. Just one word and I'll have you. I'd be so good to you Cricket," I told her. She groaned deeper and shook her head back and forth against mine. "I'd adore you forever," I promised. "Just one word, Cricket, and we'd be so good together, perfect really. One word," I breather again. I could feel her breaking down. Her face lazily pitched toward mine, imploring me to take her lips with mine, to explore her mouth with mine. I wouldn't budge, though. I need permission. She need to say it. "Cricket," I exhaled. "Jump with me."
The whole forbidden thing cranked the steam factor so high that the book was seriously smoking hot! There are scenes where she's pinned against a stall door and he's begging her for permission to touch her...and it just keeps going on...and its so steamy that I bet I was even blushing. And there's so much more then just that..EVERY SINGLE ENCOUNTER was HOT and it seriously blew my mind how good Fisher made it. So addictive(hence the 2am late night). Spencer is one sexy man and Cricket just fuels his fire. AND Cricket with her grins, body and sassy mouth...I'd be falling all over that too if I was Spence.
"I'm saying that I don't want to be friendly with you, Cricket. I want all of you. I want to be able to taste your lips whenever I feel like it, feel your skin, wrap my arms around your waist. I want to be with you utterly, and I won't take anything else but your entirety."
Steaminess and swooning aside, what I loved the most about Greed was that it's such a beautiful story. I actually did cry. A man trying to find his way and protect those he cares most about. A woman dealing with life tragedies only to fall victim yet again. The whole ranch life is what really sucked me in. Being the animal lover that I am, I was absolutely was enthralled with every part of the ranch. Also, her dog was so sweet and made me laugh with the way he acted. Everyone who worked the ranch were so endearing and accepting of everything that it will really tugged at your heart strings. 
"After all, they serve you so loyally. I think they genuinely love you, and they're so protective of you. They do their jobs so instinctually and so exceptionally because that's how God created them."
Overall I highly, HIGHLY recommend this book to everyone. URGG!!! I can't say enough how truly awesome it is... So good that I could easily do a CER100 with it (if you don't know what that means check it out HERE). I couldn't put it down, not for one second. I really really really wish that this review convinces you to pick it up because it is so worth to have on your shelf. I would even go out on a limb and say it was one of the best books I have read this year. Truly life altering and heart wrenching and beautiful, and like its predecessors, it will stay with me for a very long time...ITS AWESOME!!! GO READ IT NOW!!!! URRRGGGG SOOO GOOD!.....there...sorry I had to fan girl.....SOOO FREAKING GOOD!!!!!...... ENJOY!
