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.
Spencer Blackwell will do anything to get money. He wants out of his life, and he thinks the only way out is to get his hands on as much money as possible. He refuses to live a life less than he has, material wise. Soon enough he realizes that money isn’t the key to freedom or happiness.
I love the first book of this series Vain. Greed follows up Vain nicely. We still have those beautiful people who might not be so beautiful in the beginning. The character growth in this book is no less awesome than it was in VAIN. Spencer Blackwell is the lead in Greed. You may remember him as the only guy Sophie ever friend zoned in Vain. He’s not as bad as Sophie was, but he’s still got some nasty issues. He’s not exactly as I expected. I expected him to be well, vain. And he is, but he still comes off tender, and caring. I wanted him to not care. I think that would have made his greed more powerful. But his heart breaks because of the stuff he does. It doesn’t stop him though. Spencer is a good character. He’s solid, and sturdy. Would I have liked him to get a bit more dirty, before he came out shiny and new? Yeah, but I love gritty, filthy characters.
I love Fisher’s quirky characters. They just have something, some sort of edge that makes them more real. More human. They aren’t just words on paper they become something real. Spending time with them is a treat. Cricket was just so much fun to read. She’s smart, funny, and can handle herself. She was my shining lucky star in this book. I loved her! That girl could keep every single one of your secrets. But she’s not a goody two shoes. She’s complex.
The story is much like Vain. Rich, privileged meets hard work, but happy. This time it’s a cattle ranch in the great white north. Montana. The great thing is that Fisher treats her “other” characters more than that. They aren’t backwards hicks. They are genuine everyday people.
Overall Greed is a solid follow-up to Vain. It is its own story. With its own flaws, and sins.
