The conclusion to Claire's story was amazing! It grabbed me from the first page and kept me drawn in until the very end.
As we read in Deception, Cooper had concerns about Robert, and his possible involvement in Marie's death. He tried warning Claire about him several times, but she didn't want to believe him; she felt that he was only trying to tear Robert and her apart.
We see a different side of Robert from the very beginning of this book, and learn that all of Cooper's warnings were justified. The question is, what will Claire do when she finally sees his true colors? And how far will Cooper go to prove his theories true?
Retribution shows us a different side of Claire as well. She is much stronger than she was in Deception, and finally learns to stand on her own, even though she has Cooper to lean on. She is forced to make some tough decisions, and she tries to weigh out the consequences of those decisions, and how it will effect others.
We quickly see that Robert is evil, but the scene where everything is brought out into the open was nothing like I expected. It was dark and intense, and showed exactly how evil and twisted he really was. Retribution was a great conclusion to a great series. I definitely recommend.
Claire married Robert. She wed him even though she didn't love him and was worried that he was potentially a dangerous murderer. She is so young and is desperate to have a home that she accepts so little for herself. I wanted to be annoyed with her stupidity but I got it. There are monsters everywhere and some times the lesser evil is the one known versus all the unknowns. Robert has her exactly where he wants. Helpless. Desperate. Unemployed. What can she really do?? She is broke and homeless without him.
Claire learns quickly and harshly that none of that matters - she should have listened to Coopers warnings. Here's the twist though. Instead of it making her weak, the offense strengthens her will to survive and to escape the madness. Her character grows so much through Retribution - I was so proud of her. The initiatives she takes toward taking Robert down so she can get her life back. It's awesome.
Layered onto all this crazy drama, is Cooper and Claire's romance. Their lust and attraction was felt from their first interactions. But their friendship and connection is developed throughout this book. You're rooting for them to succeed in their plot - you want them to escape and to find happiness together.
The climax of this story is crazy, crazy good. It's intense and scary. You're totally anticipating it - thinking you're ready for it and BAM! The author blows you away. I loved it.
You do not want to miss out on this series - it is very suspenseful and entertaining.
The synopsis does a great job laying the story out and for fear of posting some kind of spoiler I won't say much !! Obviously Cooper leaves us with a pretty BIG revelation at the end of book 1 and now we get to see if it is true or not. Claire and Cooper's relationship has once again changed but Claire and Robert's does too. Obviously Robert is manipulative and controlling but is he capable of murder or planning murder ?? After some things are brought to light Claire cannot help herself from trying to put the pieces together and discover just who she is married to. Her life is in danger as is Cooper's and now they have to decide to work together or not in order to get answers they want. There is no lack of chemistry between these two and despite all the negative going on in their lives they manage to form something beautiful in the midst of it all. Will this be their demise or will their plans workout ??
Hang on tight and enjoy the ride !!
