5 – blubbering WTF did I just read stars!
Blurb: You must stick to your CONVICTION, but be ready to abandon your assumptions – Denis Waitley
Book #3 of the Consequences Series—
There were still lessons to learn and consequences for the truth!
When Claire Nichols met Anthony Rawlings, she didn’t know they had a past, or that he had plans for her future. Over time, the role of teacher changed—games became reality—and domination turned to desire. Despite an insurmountable history, Claire and Tony found their way back to one another.
Just when they seemed to have it all—love, respect, and the promise of a family—the game master exposed the truth. Claire’s world once again spun out of control. Unwilling to allow her child to suffer the consequences of an old vendetta, Claire fled…
At one time, Claire was held captive in an opulent mansion—then her incarceration was a cell inside a state penitentiary. Was her new prison—a tropical island—truly less lonely? Perhaps that was the game master’s plan, all along?
Who will save Claire from her oldest nightmare and her newest reality? Will it be Tony? Can he forgive her for leaving him—again? Harry? Will he utilize previously unknown connections to save the woman who infiltrates his thoughts? Maybe Phil? Will his devotion in keeping Claire and her child safe be rewarded?
As the cards are played—sins of the past, innocent victims, and truths are revealed. With compartmentalization no longer an option, is the reality too much? Could there be an even worse isolation?
With the game master dealing from a stacked deck, can this new high-stakes game possibly be won?
When it’s all over and their cards are on the table—SOME will discover their bets were too high—they have nothing left to lose—ALL will learn the crucial lesson—the most important rule—there are CONSEQUENCES for the TRUTH!
If you haven’t read book 1 or 2, please note – there will be spoilers from the previous book, this is the third and final installment in Aleatha Romig’s Consequences Trilogy.
These books are looooooooong – about 8 to 9 hours length wise in my Kindle. And, I’m not one to shy away, but all three books took some time to digest and figure out WTF was going on. This has got to be one of THE most convoluted stories I’ve ever read. There are stories within stories – and then those stories have stories – and so on and so forth – and ALL those stories? They have secrets. You get the point..
We left off from book 2 on an island in the south pacific. Things seemed to be ok, we got a semi-happy ending, but left wanting more (of course.)
Without going into detail, we open the 3rd book with a massive WTF is going on? It’s 2016, Claire is not on the island – Tony’s no where to be found and Emily and John are raising Claire’s baby. Uh, huh? Excuse me?
Yeah – so of course, we have to back track throughout the entire book to get to the route of the story. Did Claire and Tony stay together? Did she have a boy or girl? Did Catherine’s plans back fire? Or was she successful in her pursuit of Tony and Claire – is that why Claire’s in an institution? SOOOOOOOOOOO Many questions – and I had to wade through 7.5 hours of book to get to the best part – the last 20% is where all the questions are answered – and she makes you feel about 20 different things in the matter of three pages. I was crying, I was yelling WHAT THE FUCK!!!, begging please, no, no, no make it a dream!!!!!
My husband came in and asked me what the hell I was yelling at, saw my kindle in my hand and shook his head as he shut the door. He should know by now, it’s either an episode of True Blood – or a book 🙂 Sometimes I can get a tad bit over emotional about things.
There is a TON of description through this series – it at times can be dense and hard to get through, but if you stick with it – you won’t be disappointed. The story is strange – heart breaking – angry – forgiving – and by the end you will love Tony for what he has become – not what he was.
