Truth 18+

The following review is for 18+ readers.
Truth (Consequences, #2)
4 of 5 stars false

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. Domination became desire and power turned to love.
Their passion and adoration in a world of opulence appeared perfect. Yet, 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 set a well laid plan into motion.
However, unbeknownst to either of them, there were others who saw past the perfect facade 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 skillfully 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?


Wow, another great story in this series. Once again Aleatha Romig has kept my mind reeling with all the different possibilities. Even though I believed I understood where things were at the end of this book, it has be brought to my attention that what I took as a forgone conclusion might actually once again be a wonderful mislead by this fabulously tricky author.
As much as I hated certain character  at the end of the previous book and  thought I would never ever change my opinion , how could I when his crimes were so heinous? I must admit (shamefully) that by the end of this story I was seriously seeing a different side to the much hated Tony. But do I believe it??
Hahaha that is what is so magic about this book!! Who is the good guy?? Who is the bad guy?? I swear my head is spinning round like the chick from Exorcist at how quickly things can change in this wonderfully laid out story.
I found this one also to be much better paced. I wasn't skipping things, even though after thinking about the previous book more, I believe the way it was paced was important and on purpose.
So many wonderful twists and now I have to wait another year before I get any sort of real answers, ahhh so frustrating.
A highly addictive series that will keep you guessing and changing your mind up until the last page, well done again Aleatha Romig, you are awesome!!
