GR's Summary:

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.

My Thoughts:

I was eager to jump right into reading Greed, because I absolutely loved the first book in the series, Vain, by Fisher Amelie.  Spencer was one of Sophie Price's wealthy friends that we were introduced to in her story.  As a matter of fact, he was the only friend of Sophie's that I liked, before she had her transformation.  I was so excited to learn more about Spencer (Spence) and read his story.  Greed is soley told from Spence's point of view.

Spence attends Brown, is popular, wealthy, and has the world at his fingertips.  However, he lives a miserable existence.  He doesn't have any real friends.  People use him for his money, and his father uses him as his lackey to do his bidding.  Spencer can't stand to look at himself in the mirror.  He disgusts himself with the lengths that he is willing to go, in order to get large sums of money from his father.  Spencer despises his father, and is saving up, so that he can disappear and leave, but not until he acquires enough money to continue to live the lifestyle that he has grown accustomed to.  A lifestyle that includes the most expensive cars, designer clothing, the most beautiful women, and anything that he wants getting delivered to him at the snap of his fingers.  Spencer is very close to his younger, and beautiful, 17 year old sister Bridget (Bridge).  He loves his mother, but knows that she is weak, and will never leave his father.  

Bridget confides in Spence that she is pregnant and wants to keep her baby.  When Bridge and Spence tell their parents, their father demands that she has an abortion.  When Bridge refuses, her father threatens to have her committed if she doesn't do what he tells her, and unfortunately, he has the money and means to follow through with his threat.  Spencer gets in contact with his college roommate, August, who agrees to help out them out by getting them in touch with a place that they can go hide out at until Bridget has her baby and turns 18.  So, Spencer and Bridget leave for the small town of Bitterroot, Montana.  They flee to the Hunt Ranch were that are welcomed by Emmett and Ellie (August's Grandparents), and Jonah and Cricket (August's Cousins.)  

There is an immediate and breathtaking attraction between Spencer and Cricket, but Spence quickly learns that she is taken, and her boyfriend Ethan Moonsong makes sure Spence knows it!  While on the ranch, Spencer learns what hard work is when he's laboring from dusk till dawn with Jonah, Cricket, Ethan and the other workers.  He also learns about the beauty of close family, friends, and community.  Bridge and Spence begin to make a home at Hunt Ranch, and become happier than they've ever been in their lives.  Unfortunately, a dark cloud lurks, as their father goes through great lengths to find them.  Also, the closer that Spencer and Cricket get, the more anguish Spencer suffers from falling for a woman he can't have.  Cricket has her own secrets, and Spencer is determined to figure them out.  Bridget is falling in love with Jonah, but knows that it would never work out, because she is pregnant with another man's child.

Greed was such a wonderful story.  It had friendship, love, romance, mystery, angst, and suspense.  I smiled, I cried, and I cheered on Spencer and Cricket, as well as Bridget and Jonah!  My heart broke, and my heart soared in happiness!  Fans of the Lost and Found Series by Nicole Williams will enjoy Greed.  This story had warmth, family, a close community, friendship, and that same small town feel.  Check out this series for excellent character driven stories, with heart, compassion, healing, and transformation.  They also have a good dose of romance intertwined with breathtaking love stories! 

My Rating:

If you are looking for stories with substance, angst, and romance, check out Greed by Fisher Amelie.  The first half of this story was a bit slow moving, but the second half took off, and completely had me hooked.  I enjoyed watching Spencer grow as a character.  The transformation was beautiful and believable.  Cricket, and her family were instrumental to Spence becoming wiser, and learning what was important in life.  Cricket was such a lively, spirited, and beautiful character as well.  I loved her approach to life, and her good hearted nature was what Spence needed in his life at that moment.  The slow building friendship, romance, and love that blossomed between Spencer and Cricket completely captivated me.  Greed was such a heartfelt, and beautiful love story, with many great messages and life lessons.  I give Greed, by Fisher Amelie, 4 Heartfelt, Warm, Romantic, Healing, and Love Blossoming Filled Stars!  

My Favorite Quotes:

"I'm going to tell you something, but this can only be said once, she began and took another shaky breath, I suffer for you, she barely got out.  I want to be near you always.  I'm falling in love with you and it's--it's a sweet agony, however, it's still an agony."  (eARC, Loc. 2786)


"An intense, burning pounding hit me in the chest and my hand shot to my heart and stayed there.  I waited for the sensation to subside but it didn't.  At first it hurt, but then it scorched me so sweetly I begged for God never to take it away.  It blistered my soul, imprinted in my skin, and seared my lips.  It was the exact moment I fell in love with Cricket Hunt.  The point in time I knew my life would never be the same again."  (eARC, Loc. 3664)


"I'm saying that I don't just 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."  (eARC, Loc. 3772)

  1. I would have to say out of the seven deadly sins Idle intrigues me the most.
