* REVIEW * "Convicted (Consequences #3)" by Aleatha Romig

Reviewer : Kaylene
Rating : 5 Stars

Book three of the Consequences series was just as good as the other two, and I found that this series was quite the epic saga.  I loved the series to bits and would highly recommend it as a fabulous read.

Mostly through this series I was wandering what the heck was going on.  There was a roller coaster of emotion and suspense.  I wanted to hate Anthony Rawlings but found that I loved him in the end.   He had a very nasty past and it was hard to look at him as anything other than a very bad man but through the eyes of Claire it was hard to see him as anything other than a loving, caring man.  Claire absolutely loved and adored him and so its hard to see him in any other light.

Everything about this series was unpredictable.  I guessed some things but I think that's because they were easily guessed, the author allowed that whole "click" moment and you ended up gasping when it did click.

This book flicks from the past to the future.  It starts out in the future which gives you to "what the" moment because you really want to flick forward to see why this is happening.  It did not have as many shocking moments in it as the first two but that's because this book was all about straightening out all the story line for "all" the characters and believe me there are a lot of characters to keep on top of.

I love, love, loved this series and highly recommend it. 

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!
