Blog Tour & Review: Greed by Fisher Amelie

ABOUT GREED (Book 2 in the Seven Deadly Series):

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.

I was a HUGE fan of Vain, by Fisher Amelie. That book ripped my guts out and made me sob until 3am with the beauty of it’s message and the overwhelming emotions that pour through the pages. Pretty much, with that one book, Fisher Amelie made me a diehard fan so I’ve been waiting rather impatiently for Greed, the second in the Seven Deadly Sins series, to find it’s way into my greedy hands.

Obviously, the sin of this book is Greed and wow does Spencer Blackwell really fit that sin well. He comes from a black, black family full of deception, greed, and lies. His father is pretty much the worst of the worst, and in Vain, you get some hints of the depth of Spencer’s character in comparison to that of his father’s.

Spencer, deep down, is a good guy from the beginning. And in the spur of the moment, after years of abuse from his dad, and a lot worse, Spencer abandons his entire family fortune in order to save another person who is placed in a precarious position that she can’t escape. He gives up everything, and with good reason. But that’s not the end of the story obviously. It’s the beginning.

I’ll be honest, in the beginning, I wasn’t quite feeling Spencer or his situation. I was like…well…okay? I felt it was a little anticlimactic compared to what occurred in Vain. And then, of course, Amelie completely tilted my world on it’s axis and revealed the crux of her plot and it DEVASTATED ME. Oh my, it tore my heart to shreds and pretty much sent me into sobs again, just like Vain did.

I didn’t think it was possible to exceed the beauty and raw emotion that is carried through the pages of Vain, but Greed does just that. It takes a rich, dark, handsome man, breaks him down into pieces, gives him something to fight for, to change for, and then creates this raw love story from those pieces, with a heroine who is truly amazing, and sends the readers into this roller coaster ride of emotion that is indescribable.

Way to go, Fisher Amelie. Way to go. Slow, epic claps abound!

    I think the hardest one for me is going to be ENVY. I feel like I’m gonna feel some major toe-stepping in that one.

  2. Jenna says:

    I finished Vain a few days back and was totally blown away. Loved Spencer’s character within that book. So, I have been dying to pick up Greed. Your review, especially describing how the author titled the book again, makes me eager to see where book II is going to go.
    (And of course, pick up hints for what book III will hold — cause Amelie is now one of my favorite authors.)

    Glad to hear that, Greed delivers a punch. Great review!
