Book #2 of the Bestselling Consequences Series:
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?
And here we go….
So I thought I was lost in a roller coaster of emotions with ‘Consequences’. That book RUINED me in the most amazing ways. I had no idea what I was going into with ‘Truth’ especially with the cliffhanger setting we were left to process. I couldn’t sleep until I delve into this book. I was haunted thinking of Tony and Claire and what could possibly be next for them. I mean how do you come back from that?!?!
“In their figurative game of chess, Anthony Rawlings had Claire in check. Every move she made, he countered.”
Months after reading I am still coming to terms with my feelings. I found myself disturbed by how much I loved Tony despite what a sinister, calculating, cruel man he could be. I don’t completely forgive him for what he put Claire through and yet I am utterly smitten with him. There were moments where I was so torn by what my mind was telling me I should feel for him and what my heart felt.
“I have made some bad decisions… and done some things I regret in my life… but without a doubt… what I regret the most… is divorcing you. If you tell me there is hope, that one day you’ll be Mrs. Rawlings again, I will wait.”
There has to be a good psychologist out there that could help me come to terms with my love for Tony Rawlings. I know I am not the only one that is as fascinated and as intrigued by him. Especially Claire.
“I know you enjoy coffee, I’d offer you some. But, the last time I got you coffee, it didn’t work out so well for me.”Tony smirked, “God, Claire you’re something else. I can’t imagine anyone else joking about that.”
For the record I LOVED Claire in Consequences but in Truth she is a badass. Powered by anger and revenge she is not a woman to be messed with. Tony’s realization that Claire will not go down again without a fight is a turning point from him. Instead of wanting meek Claire he wants her and her fury.
“Mr Anthony Rawlings had a lesson to learn and Claire claimed the role as teacher.”
This series just keeps getting better and better. I have no idea what I will do with myself until Convicted is released. I just pray that Tony finds true redemption and he and Claire end up together once and for all :::hint hint Aleatha::::
