Book #5 of the bestselling Consequences series
From New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes more of the suspenseful romantic thriller about secrets and deception, passion and love, choices and consequences.
Secrets and deception
As the pieces of their puzzle come together, Anthony and Claire Rawlings continue to defy the odds. Together they overcame an incomprehensible beginning. Apart they endured unimaginable heartache. Reunited with family and friends, their journey continues as they navigate a dangerous world where secrets threaten to destroy what they hold the most dear.
Passion and love
Tony and Claire turn up the heat as sparks fly, passion rages, and love prevails. With only a dark glance or devilish grin, the fire that sparked in an isolated suite, continues to burn. Though no longer willing to be less than Tony’s equal in life, behind closed doors only one man makes the rules.
Choices and consequences
The safety of the Rawlings family is not debatable, and only Phillip Roach can assure that they are not disappointed. Learn how he leads old friends and new associates through the dangerous world of delusion and revenge. The choices he makes for both the family and his personal life will have consequences.
Beyond the Consequences is a novel that began as the novella, A Peek Beyond the Consequences, in a limited-release anthology, Breathless. Since its publication in 2014, Beyond the Consequences has more than quadrupled in length with more action, heat, and secrets to reveal. Learn once and for all the identity and fate of the sender of the Rawls-Nichols letters as you join the Rawlings for a special surprise!
Theirs was a long, complicated story with a monster and a knight. What made their story unique was that these two players were the same person.—Aleatha Romig, CONVICTED
The events in Beyond the Consequences take place directly after Convicted and where we all left off. Was I 100% content with that ending? Yes. Did I want and need more? Yes. Does Aleatha give me what I need in this book to successfully finish this series for me? Hells Yes!!!
This story is a peek at what Tony and Claire’s life is like after Convicted…after the Island, after getting Nichol back, after “the package” was received by Phil. And what of that “package”?
I have to say I just loved this book. I will speak for myself, but I think we can all agree that Aleatha has a writing style that is different and unique. She is very descriptive and always leaves me with a beautiful picture in my head. Whether it be Nichol’s bedroom, the winters in Iowa or the Island. If I could draw, I would have the most beautiful images on paper from these books. The handsome Tony Rawlings, the doting father, CEO and supporting husband. (Did I just say all of that out loud?) Why yes you did Trish. I needed to see Tony in daddy mode. I needed to know how he would handle being a father. I must say it’s very sexy.
And Claire…Well she has a whole new set of issues to deal with in this book. And I honestly never thought of the aftermath of being locked away for those years, and how it would affect Claire, Tony and Nichol. Claire is a very strong woman, and I loved the way this story unfolded and showed this side of her. This is a side of Claire that I love, that I am proud of.
Also in Beyond, we get more of Phil, which I loved!!! And we see a new side of Phil; a more personal side. His devotion to Claire and this family is shown in his actions. At times I worried for him. So once this story unfolded, and Aleatha jumps back into her angsty mood, I couldn’t put it down. Between the hush hush meetings, and commotion, the secret packages, I was scared shit for Rawlingses.
But the one thing that is constant in this book, is the love that Tony and Claire share with each other, and their daughter. I was moved to tears more than once. Just because, we all know where this story all began and to see Tony evolve…and watch Claire grow stronger. It’s a transformation I enjoyed watching as I read. And this book wrapped it all up the way it should be.
You feel everything these characters feel. The love shown between one another, the friendships they share, the angst, the worry, the hurt, the pain…the regrets. It’s all there and then some. Some scenes I was left breathless by Tony and his words, and in some scenes my heart was racing because I was too scared to read ahead and learn what was to come.
There is no doubt this story needed to be told. I can’t believe I went from loathing Tony Rawlings to loving and respecting him whole-heartedly. I can remember a time I dreaded reading this series. Thank God I didn’t pass this up. The journey that Aleatha takes you on will stay with you, forever. This story is unforgettable.
The book gets 5 Stars and 5 HOLLAS!! And definitely Trish Mint Approved!
