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.


Greed is a strange, strange sin.
All you want to do is acquire. Acquire money, acquire material, acquire time, acquire energy, acquire attention. The running mantra is “I want, I want, I want” but that quickly turns to “I need, I need, I need.”Suddenly there just isn’t enough time for friends, for family, for anyone. Your goal is to acquire and to make sure what you acquire stays acquired. Your life depends on it. You don’t see truth because the truth is shadowed by enormous homes, incredibly fast cars, in lavish spending. Your life no longer belongs to you, but you are blind to it all because those around you are seeking the same.
So you shuffle along at an impossible rate, and you pass the real world around you.
But what you’ll come to realize, altogether too late, is that it’s never enough. It’s simply never enough.
Chapter One
“It’s confirmed. Peter Knight of Evergreen won’t approve the acquisition. You know what to do,” my snake of a father told me, not two steps into his front door.
“I just got off a seven-hour flight. You can’t let me settle in? Possibly say hello?”
He stood, watching me, a slight tick in his square jaw. He tucked his hands into his Italian silk pants. His six-foot frame followed the steps up to the foyer and stopped a few inches away from my own. We were face to face. Although I fell an inch shorter, he no longer intimidated me. I knew if I had to, I could kick his ass.
“Hello, Spencer,” he said, a serpent’s smile spread wide across his mouth before falling flat. “Get to work. I don’t pay you to sit around. I don’t care if it is your Christmas break.”
We stayed where we were, each waiting on the other to back down. The tension was palpable. In the end, his face relaxed and he began to chuckle, stepping aside and making way for me. I picked up my bags and headed for my room, giving myself plenty of space to pass him without touching him.When I got to the bottom of the stairs, I changed my mind and threw my bags on the second to last step, intending to pick them up later. I stretched my muscles, loving the feel of my back popping, and started for the kitchen.
“Where the hell do you think you’re going?” he asked, still standing in the foyer, watching my every move.
“If I don’t say hi to Mom and Bridge, they’ll think something’s up,” I told him and continued on.

He didn’t respond, but I felt his stare burning into the back of my head.

Interview with Ethan Moonsong:

Hi Ethan!! *waves* Welcome to Books to Get Lost In. I’m so glad you could stop by and chat for a little bit. So before we get started on the juicy Q&A’s why don’t you introduce yourself a little to our audience.

Hello, and thank you so much for having me.

So Ethan you’re Native American. Could you tell us which tribe you belong to and a little bit about that tribe? I’m super curious.

I’m from the Echo River tribe. We’ve been in the Bitterroot Mountains for over three hundred years. We stayed fairly secluded until about a hundred years ago when progress in Montana exposed us. Many of our tribe members are purely Echo River and that, of course, is really rare. Actually, I’m the only half white member of our tribe.

How did your parents meet?

When my mom was nineteen, she moved into town to be closer to her church. They met in the pews. My mom told me that she would sit at the front and my dad would sit in the back and that every Sunday she noticed he would move one pew closer until one day, he sat in the same pew.

How did you and your dad end up on the Hunt Ranch? And what’s your favorite thing about the ranch?

My dad had worked with the Hunts since he was out of high school. He was best friends with Jonah’s dad Chuck. Even when I was little, after school, Cricket and I would ride to her ranch and we’d play outside, do our homework, etc. until my dad was ready to leave.

My favorite thing about the ranch was getting on my horse and just being able to ride and roam freely even when I was working. There is nothing like that feeling.

What do you like to do for fun? Any hobbies? What kind of music do you listen to? Do you like to read? Tell us a little something about the real Ethan outside of the work on the ranch and outside of Cricket.

Yeah, I listen to all kinds of music, mostly alternative. I like folk, things like that, too. I’ve been blasting Imagine Dragons a lot lately. I love to read. I’m really into thrillers at the moment. Something about me? I’m skilled in the art of knives. My grandpa taught me everything I know in the style of the Echo River people.

Okay so when did you and Cricket first meet?

Cricket and I literally grew up together. I don’t ever remember a time that we didn’t know one another…since we were infants.

And when is it that you fell in love with her?

Ugh…this is a very difficult question. I fell in love with Cricket, I think, when we were five. She’d fallen off a fence we were playing on and busted her lip. She was sniffling and it was bleeding pretty badly and all I could remember thinking was I would die if she died and that I hoped she would stay with me forever. I don’t think I comprehended what that meant exactly until I was older but I definitely remember thinking that I couldn’t live without her.

Tell me a little bit about your relationship with Cricket in high school and how it has evolved with you guys as young adults.

High school was so much fun for us. We were always busy, always playing around, always laughing. As we got older, for some reason, we lost sight of that fun. When she got sick, that’s all we could focus on and I think that killed us.

So I have to ask when you first saw Spencer and his sister Bridget outside of the main house what was your first thought? And then when you sat down at the table?

Truthfully? I didn’t trust him. Not at all. He watched Cricket so intently, I should have known he was absolutely no good.

I’m curious. What are your thoughts about Cricket’s metal sculptures? Pretty awesome right?

Yeah, it’s a great hobby but she has such bigger things to worry about right now. It’s just a hobby.

So the tension between you and Spencer. Kinda heavy and all, but I have to ask how you dealt with it at the time and didn’t just break out into an old school brawl?

The only thing and I mean the only thing preventing us from going all out was the fact that it would have disrespectful toward Ellie and Emmett but most of all, and unfortunately for me, it would have really hurt Cricket.

Do you track animals? I know when you guys had to fight against the wolves that must have been pretty scary, especially, since Cricket was out there.

I absolutely track animals. It’s funny that you ask that because that’s exactly what I do. I follow the Echo Tribe way. Not only do I track them but I hunt them by hand.

Now I have to ask something a little harder… when Cricket lost her best friend (Eugie) and ran into Spencers arms instead of yours…what were you thinking? I mean were you? What was going through your head?

All I thought was, I hate him. I hate him. I hate him. I hate him….I hate him.

Looking back now did you really not see Cricket slipping from your relationship? I know you guys have years of history and everything, but were you guys growing apart at all?

I’m not stupid. I knew she was drifting but I didn’t want to embrace what it meant. I kept making excuses convincing myself that she was just distracted by her illness, she was distracted by the ranch, but, as we both know, that wasn’t the case.

So now that you’ve had some time to cool off and think clearly. The threat you made to Spencer….did you ever go through with it? Or have you moved past that? Since Cricket has been able to recover and live a healthy life….are things better between you two?

You’ll have to read my story then, won’t you.

What’s going on in your life right now? Got anyone special? I know Finley has a thing form you *wiggles eyebrows*

Hmm…Again, you’ll just have to read my book to find out.

Thank you so much for stopping by and answering these questions and the difficult ones. I know that must have been hard for you. But we really appreciate it. J

Thank you so much for having me!

About the Author:
Fisher Amelie is the author of The Leaving Series, Callum & Harper and Thomas & January. She began her writing career as a copywriter for an internet marketing company wherein one of their client's said, 'Hey! You're funny. You should write books'. Which in turn she said, 'Hey, get out of here! This is the lady's restroom.' While washing her hands and the embarrassment from her face, she thought they may have had a valid point. So, she took the thousands of hours of writing stories growing up, tucked them into her pocket and began writing and writing and writing.

Where to Stalk Fisher:

Meagan's Review:

I cannot give enough praise to Fisher and her brilliance. When I started reading this book I wasn't sure what to expect. Spencer was an interesting character. And the family dynamic is....different. I understand why things are the way they are. So this review is def going to be hard because I don't want to give too much of this amazing book away. But I will tell you emotions def come out in this book; both  between the characters and the reader. I was sobbing in tears toward the end of this book and was in complete denial and upset and OMG I can't tell you I threw my nook at one point. But there were also awwww.... moments and happy moments and beautiful view (in my mind) moments and OMG did he really do that??? 

So anyways Spencer takes his sister Bridge away from their family home and life because she found out she is pregnant and their dad won't let her keep it. And let me tell you that piece of beep beep beep beep beep beep.....yeah sorry I don't like him. So anyways Spencer calls his rommie from college and they make a treck out to the Hunt Ranch for safety and sanctuary. Spencer works on the ranch to help out and earn their keep and Bridge helps in the kitchen and semi takes it easy being pregnant and all. While on the ranch they meet a lot of people; Emmett and Ellie Hunt who own the ranch. Their grandson Jonah works on the ranch and take a special interest in Bridge. And I love their story and how they get to know each other. We also meet Cricket....well I should say Spencer meets Cricket....well met isn't really the word I would use either. She walks through he door and he drops his mouth to the floor along with is heart and the rest of his body as he ogles her.  Now while these two have a moment or several moments it should be mentioned that at dinner one more character comes into play; Cricket's boyfriend Ethan. 

Now I think this is the most comical part of the book because Ethan and Spencer loath each other. And like right off the bat. Any chance these two can get to show one another up they do. It's kind of funny. I will say though....even though I had Ethan on my blog today and I enjoyed getting to know him....I really did not like him in this book. I really wanted Spencer and Cricket to have a chance. But with their love life aside and getting to know one another and working on the ranch and helping Bridge being pregnant and all more stuff goes on in this book. lol The past comes back to haunt Spencer and he has to make some pretty tough choices. He also gets to see a different side of life and it's the kind of life and neighbors that I wish I had. Not only does Spencer's past come to hit him full force, he has to make some choices in the future because the Hunt family has been keeping a HUGE secret. One that finally comes out and makes soooo much sense. But the question becomes what will Spencer choose? Will Cricket and Spencer have a chance at love? Or will she stay with Ethan and see what their future holds? Will Bridge find her own happiness?  What about their dad? Will all of Spencer's secrets come out? Ahhhhh so many questions and that's only the half of it. Go make sure to pick up your copy and fall in love with Spencer's story and see where it leads him.
