BookWhisperer Rating:

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.

First off let me just say that I don't know if my impression of Spencer from Vain was the intending reaction. I did not feel any attraction to his character, and at no point was conflicted about Sophia relationship with Ian, because I was absolutely not feeling Spencer. Therefore, in starting Greed I knew that this was a story of the underdog, and I was hesitant fearing my lack of attraction for his character would change the outcome of the story for me. I should have never feared, because this held no sway in my feelings for this 2nd story. 

My feelings for Greed were immediate and unexpected. This story is so dissimilar to the first novel. This is Spencer's quest to alter the cycle. When choice matters most he supports his sister, and rebels againist the man will his thumb over his entire family. As you will remember this is the horrible man that acquisitioned Sophia in book one. Spencer is no stranger to the darker side of life, and his father uses him for his own pawn at every opportunity. Greed combines Spencer's romantic story, and that of a side story for his sister. Cricket was nothing that I had expected from this series, and her character was so different I was overwhelmed with a bit of a rockabilly feel for her. Honestly, I would not see how it would have been possible to have a more contasting story line. It seems the only connection for the deadly sins series is the character, and the desire to change course of their train wreck lives. I am overjoyed to have had this experience if for no other reason than that many of the aspects of this story were foreign to me, and that proved to be an adventure all on its own. My faith in Spencer was restored, and I had the absolute pleasure of experiencing Greed. As if we needed any more proof book two definitely shows that Amelia Fisher's wide array of talents have barely been tapped, and she can write just about anything. This is a truly remarkable series, and one I can't wait to continue. ~BookWhisperer Reviewer Jax~
