Review

"CONSEQUENCES is definitely a book you have to read. I hope it evokes the same crazy emotions in you that it did in me and you love it as much as I did!" -The Romance Reviews
  
"This book is an utter and complete mind f*** and I loved every minute. Aleatha is brilliant and is able to make you love and hate the characters and the plot all at the same time. BUY THIS BOOK NOW."-Love N Books

"I have lost sleep. My mind has been utterly toyed with.  And I still have no freaking clue how I should feel about Tony Rawlings. For all you readers who are hesitant to start this, first of all, I encourage you all to take the plunge!!! Go for it!!" - Aestas Book Blog

"This book is so crazy good, but such a MIND F***! It is raw, dark, and evicts so many emotions it is hard to even describe. I couldn't possibly describe my own feelings on the characters, and to me THAT is a book worth reading." - Schmexy Girl Book Blog

"Bravo to Ms. Romig for shocking the heck out of me. I never saw the ending coming. If someone saw me reading the last 25% of this book, they saw someone with their mouth hanging open." -The Fiction Vixon

I honestly debated reviewing this book for a few reasons - First, it's outside of my typical reading genere. Second, I'm still kinda reeling from the story. And, finally, I don't know how exactly I should rate it.

Let me explain.

This story is powerful. It's deeply moving and very emotional. And, it's completely horrific.

So, on one hand, it deserves five stars for being so good, but on the other hand, I might sleep better if I had just passed this one by. So, I am rating it 4 stars... because I did like the story even while I hated it. And, I will read the sequel, because I need to know good will triumph over evil. (SEE UPDATE)

Basically, stockholm syndrome is the name of the game here and it was intense. (I was not kidding when I said I think I need therapy.) Prepare yourself for a psychological roller coaster. Obviously, I have not experienced stockholm syndrome myself, but I can imagine that Claire's story would be exactly how awful it could be. And, the author makes us feel it right along with her. Although, many of the horrible things he does to her are not discussed in great detail (something I am very grateful for) it is plenty enough to understand and feel. Anthony was just so hard to read.. In some ways he reminded me of Ed Norton's character in the movie Primal Fear. You never knew (until the very end) which side of him was real. He used every tool imaginable to essentially make Claire lose herself - physically, mentally, and emotionally. Claire was going through the story always on edge, always walking on eggshells, but luckily always managing to make it thorough.

It's difficult to talk about the ending without giving it all away.

It was very weird - I searched "Kitty Thomas" because I loved her book, Comfort Food, and this popped up for .99 and I one-click purchased it before realizing that this book is NOT by Kitty Thomas.

But because it was cheap, and the opening line was awesome...(The fade into consciousness happens slowly like the melting of ice. The water is still present. It just changes form).

I decided to read it instead of returning it.

I was expecting erotic non-consent, to be honest, and this was absolutely not that genre. In fact, I was very disappointed that the abuse Claire suffered was not more explicit - not because I'm that perverted (okay, maybe I am), but because it was easier to gloss over what was happening to Claire when we weren't allowed to see it. We were only allowed to be present when Anthony was verbally being a jerk, or being sweet and loving to her. The most description we got of his violent tendencies was: [forced oral sex described a little] "From there, the evening continued until about one in the morning."

For hundreds of pages we're told about Anthony's cruelty but somehow Claire falls in love with him, although it's unclear at what point in the relationship she stopped being a passive rape victim and started being a participating sex partner.

Anthony's contrasting personalities would have been much more powerful if the reader had been present to witness at least some of the abuse. I'm just sayin'.

It's not a bad story, and the writing isn't terrible. But it needed a good editor to cut at least 100-150 pages. The lengthy descriptions of trips and clothes and shopping and wedding stuff was absolutely tedious and really made the pacing drag.

Consequences is a very dark, painful, and complex story. It is not a romance. It's a psychological thriller with lots of twists that will leave you reeling. Sensitive topics such as rape, physical abuse, and mental abuse are not glossed over and left me feeling raw. The suspense of not knowing where this story was going completed screwed with my head. At some point I even thought this book was going to be the death of me.

Glitches. Consequences. Appearances. Compartmentalize...four words Claire will never forget.

Claire met Anthony at the restaurant where she bartends. While she worked, they flirted and teased one another. Anthony charms her into meeting him for a drink after her shift. Thinking Anthony is joking when he offers her a job with enough money to pay off her debts, she signs a little napkin that changes her life forever. A week later, she is drugged, kidnapped, violated, and taken to Anthony's beautiful home which is now her prison. She is now at his mercy until her debt is paid in full.

"He hurt her - not just physically but also emotionally - down to her core. He had humiliated and seemed to enjoy humiliating her routinely since she arrived."

Claire endures so much from this man. She must obey the rules and if she failed, there are consequences. She has no freedom. Her job is to pay Tony back for her debt. Her duties include: keeping up appearances, dress in his clothes, no contact with her family, ask permission for everything, always be punctual, and give him pleasure at his convenience. She is no longer Claire Nichols, bartender, once Meteorologist. She is now Anthony's property.

I have always had a desire to read books with HEAs, books with a redeemable hero--even if I don't like him in the beginning. This is a first for me.
