Claire Nichols endured the CONSEQUENCES of Anthony Rawlings’ vendetta.
When she first arrived to his home, her goal was survival. Through strength and compartmentalization Claire captivated her captor. Her resilience in the face of his rule threatened Anthony’s well developed plan. He thought he taught her to behave-but domination became desire and Claire taught Tony to love.
Their passion and adoration in a world of opulence appeared perfect, yet the reality was a roller coaster of emotion. Claire’s world teetered on the edge of sanity as Antony monitored her every move. When given the opportunity to flee, Claire drove away—a fateful decision which began a well laid plan.
Unbeknownst to either of them, there were others who saw past the perfect facade of Anthony Rawlings. There were others who saw the TRUTH. Conspiracy and unfulfilled promises result in an early prison release for Claire. Not just a release—a pardon. According to the law, her crime never happened!
Will it be that easy? Faced with freedom from her past—can Claire seize it? Can she build a new life, mend her broken spirit, become the woman she once was, and seek her own revenge? Or is it all a game? And does the game master have different plans?
How does Sophia Burke fit into the puzzle that is Tony and Claire? Will her presence affect the future of this well esteemed man? Can he dominate twice? Is that his goal?
TRUTH continues the tumultuous saga of CONSEQUENCES,introduces new players, and uncovers more intrigue. Aleatha Romig skillfully weaves past transgressions through current deception to create a fervent world of obsessed desire. In this reality can an all-consuming relationship survive?
When buried sins are discovered they threaten not only Tony and Claire’s future—but their very lives! Will the TRUTH be revealed in time?
Yes, you still want to smack Claire (as if she hasn't been mistreated enough) and beat up Anthony, but the story moves right along. It is so worth the read.
What I liked: There is always something happening. Ms Romig completely develops the back stories of the characters and takes you on a wild ride. I loved to hate Anthony and began to like Tony. (Same person) I especially liked finding out who Claire's true friends were.
What I didn't like: I'm not sure where the whole Sophia/Derek situation is going to go. I was reading about Claire and the next chapter would be about Sophia. It's kinda like reading the Game of Thrones books. You're reading along and get to a Jon Snow chapter and just groan. After having doubts about Consequences, I KNOW Ms Romig will make it all tie together. It wasn't so much about what I didn't like about Sophia/Derek but the frustration that was there.
Seriously, give this series a chance. There was just something about it that kept me wanting to read more. Now, less than a week and we get Convicted, the third book. Can not wait!!
