*REVIEW* "Truth (Book #2 Consequences Series)" by Aleatha Romig

Truth - Consequences Series by Aleatha Romig
Reviewer: Kaylene
Rating: 5 Stars

~ Review ~

Book two of the Consequences Series  starts off where book one finishes.  Gotta say this book is no less stressful than the last one and wears you down until you need a Valium to help you relax.

I have to admit I did truly wonder where this story could head after the roller coaster ride that book one provided.   I unequivocally hated Tony Rawlings at the end of book one, hated was too nice a word.  He was the most despicable human being that I’ve ever had the misfortune to read and then by the end of book two I was loving him ... go figure.  I can’t fathom it, I think I definitely need more therapy.  I needed heaps of therapy after book one and now I am booked back in for more :)

So you say, how could you possibly even contemplate that you love Tony !!! Well I think I do but I'm not sure, okay so the therapy will help.

This is one talented author, she has me second guessing everything and frustrated to the point of Kindle throwing.   This book was very well written just like the first one. I had lots of trouble putting it down but I had too if I wanted to sleep, because it's very long just like the first one.
I'm now seeing some of the story from Tony's POV, because there was a back-story which was really good.  I did guess some of it but not all of it.
Is Tony worthy of forgiveness, geez I don’t know because my mind has been so totally blown away I have no idea what I think anymore.  Poor Claire I certainly understand her indecisiveness.  
Are all my questions answered, hell no so now I am onto the third book to see where this epic story ends up.
Fantastic read, would thoroughly recommend it to everyone who will listen.

~ Synopsis ~

Book #2 of the Consequences Series:

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. 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 façade 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 skilfully 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?
