The CONSEQUENCES SERIES READING COMPANIONS
Books #4 of the CONSEQUENCES Series – BEHIND HIS EYES – CONSEQUENCES is a reading companion, by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Aleatha Romig, recommended to be readafter completing all of the CONSEQUENCES SERIES: Consequences, Truth, and Convicted. It is not a standalone book and should not be read as such.
This companion was written to explore the thoughts and motivations of Anthony Rawlings, the man behind the consequences. It was not intended as a total rewrite of Consequences, but meant to enhance the reader’s understanding.
BHE-Consequences contains significant scenes from the novel Consequences, as experienced from Anthony’s point of view. It also contains never before read, behind the scenes information, as well as, a glossary of the characters and a timeline devoted to the events within Consequences.
BEHIND HIS EYES CONSEQUENCES is a dark journey into the mind of the man who believes that he controls everything and controls nothing. Because there is more to learn about a man who:
Once upon a time, signed a napkin that he knew was a contract. As an esteemed businessman, he forgot one very important rule—he forgot to read the fine print. It wasn’t an acquisition to own another person as he’d previously assumed. It was an agreement to acquire a soul.
Well everyone knows I am and always have been a Mr. Rawlings lover and supporter!! He’s been my dark and twisted book boyfriend over and over. I love this series, I’ve screamed and raved about it. Now I will say I was very hesitant about going into Tony’s mind. I mean he could totally have RUINED ME!!! Well I am now 5 days finished and still a little uneasy about my love for him.
This is a companion novel so with that said I wasn’t quite sure how we were going to get the story. We get some pre-Claire stuff which I was grateful for. It glimpsed into the man before the vendetta truly began. However, when we really get into the nitty gritty it was tough in places for me (as a Tony lover). There were times I wanted to scream and cry. I mean who the hell is this man??? I hated him at times. I hated that there were times I thought he was different but he’s NOT DAMMIT!!!! FUCKING TONY!!! I kept screaming it AGAIN!!!
I’ve read the entire series, I know how it ends but noooooooo I had to freaking relive that shit again and remember how shitty I felt at the end of Consequences! I am so ughhhhhhhhh!! So we go in pieces and glimpses of time, this is not the entire novel re-written. Also it is not nearly as long as any of the books which I read in one day. I will not lie to you there were some parts I struggled to read. I felt sick at some points. Also I feel like there were parts I wanted to see the evolution of his feelings because I was so upset again. Living it through his eyes was different. I also think that I would have enjoyed it if they were all three books in one companion novel verses reading it in the trilogy setting again. I don’t know maybe because I ended feeling all stabby again? Tony’s mind is not a walk in the park BUT it helped me understand a little more. It also showed you things that you never knew Claire was so wrong about. So overall it was a journey that I learned a lot! Not all of it was easy but I mean when the hell have we ever gotten easy or happy fluffy clouds with this series??? I am definitely interested in seeing where we go next because my angsty stabby self needs more.
