Come back here…
See how your about to have your head fucked with again…
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. Domination became desire and power turned to love. Their passion and adoration in a world of opulence appeared perfect. Yet, 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 set a well laid plan into motion. However, 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?
After finishing Consequences I strapped myself down, grabbed a glass of wine (should have gone for the vodka) and opened my iPad. I knew that I was going to get another round of twists, turns, and a lot of WHAT THE FUCK moments. Of course I was right again, only for the next book I plan to have that vodka handy. I have yet again found myself completely shocked, stunned and now exhausted. To avoid spoilers you may not fully comprehend this review, until you read the book yourself. Then when you re-read this you will shake your head and say “ahhhh, yes now I see what she meant”.
At the end of Consequences we were all left going uhhhh WHAT?!?!?! Expect no different when you read Truth! My head is still reeling because I seriously have no idea how we started there and ended where we did. I know I read it and comprehended it but you guess it… MIND FUCKED! When I read I become the main character in my head, I follow their journey and feel the emotion, so imagine how frayed I am here!
So lets talk Claire, in book one my heart ached for her so many times. I wanted to hug her, and protect her. She endured more shit than anyone should ever have to. Well, in Truth I wanted to choke the ever loving shit out of her. I swear if she was my friend I would have slapped her! WHAT IN THE HELL WAS SHE THINKING???? I was on Facebook talking to some friends who assured me that it was ok to loathe her now. I mentioned before I thought she may have become certifiable, well in Truth I think someone needs to commit her! A lot of questions get answered in the end, so I THANK YOU Aleatha Romig because I am now in Vegas with you and don’t have to hunt you down. Claire’s behavior will drive you BAT SHIT CRAZY! However, this is all part of this twisted game that we signed up to read. It is so hard to fully comprehend how at war your emotions are because in one second I am angry with Claire and on the other I am so proud of her.
Tony, oh you maddening son of a bitch! I swear castration was made for men like him (yes yes fictional character). He is seriously a twisted asshat, but yet here I sit loving him again. I cannot for the life of me even begin to understand what the hell is wrong with me. He kidnapped her, raped her, did all kinds of crazy shit to her but I love him. I am not sure what the hell happened (well yes I do but I can’t tell you..HAHA) to make that change because in the end of Consequences ohhh did I hate him!! I felt like this book gave you so many unresolved answers into Tony, it also gave you peace of mind from what you thought you knew about him in book one. It sure as shit didn’t make anything ok for me, but at least I felt like I understood him better. Of course he is still a master manipulator because well that is Anthony Anton Tony whatever the hell name you want to pick.
So things I feel like I can say about their story…
1. You have NO FUCKING CLUE about anything
2. Claire is an idiot half the time and the other half she is strong and amazing! Quite a contradiction right?
3. You will meet a lot of new characters and I think you will be scratching your head quite a bit, because if you can figure out what happened then you need to start writing because I was NOT prepared for some of that. I will say I was pretty proud of myself for figuring one part out.
4. I am in love with Tony, and you will either love him or hate him because I promise there is no middle!
5. I am also in love with Harry!
6. At 3 am when I finished this book I was calm enough to not want to cause physical bodily harm to anyone so that was a bonus!
Ok so some questions get answered and then of course new ones have formed. I am glad there is another book because I for some odd reason I would like to cause myself to go prematurely gray, or develop an ulcer. This book for me was so much easier to stomach because a lot of the violence that was in Consequences doesn’t happen in Truth. This series has been one of the most complex and mind blowing series I have read. It is dark and twisted in some ways, but beautiful and hopeful in others. I have had two friends tell me they couldn’t read it because of the subject matter, but those who have we all share in the screaming and as they say the Truth will set you free!! The real question is will the Truth come out soon enough to not ruin Claire & Tony completely?
Amazing book trailer!
