Convicted by Aleatha Romig
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!
Aleatha Romig’s CONVICTED!
My Rating: 4 of 5 Stars
After reading CONVICTED, it was apparent that I needed three things:
● A Stiff Drink
● Xanax, one ain’t gonna do it… How about a 90-day supply x 2?
● And since I am being greedy, I’ll take a big, thick – sounds like “click”…If you don’t know by now that CONVICTED is the third and final book in the Consequences Trilogy, then you are a dumbass… Just kidding… sort of ☺ If you haven’t read the first two books, then do yourself a favor and read them first because there is a lot of shit going on and I could barely keep up with everything and I HAVE read them. The last thing you want is to be feeling like Johnny Depp’s character in FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS while reading a psychological thriller.
Yeah, reading the trilogy in order is pretty much a prerequisite for the CONSEQUENCES Class.
If you need a quick recap, then check out my reviews of the first two books in the series, Consequences and Truth . How to proceed without spoiling the book for you? Hmmm…
CONVICTED was an exhausting book (for me) to read, and I mean that in a good way. You have seriously got to be firing on all cylinders to keep the plot lines in order. Aleatha Romig is so crafty. I am impressed. I was and still am amazed that she was able to put together this “million piece puzzle” (Aleatha’s words) and actually make it work. Trust me, I really, really tried to find a flaw in the connections, but alas! Miss Romig was on the money with the drama and she had drama in spades. Prepare yourself, because you will be asking questions for days, weeks, hell, maybe even months from now and you might have to phone a friend – I did. My questions weren’t because things were unclear, it’s just that the more I thought about the story, the more pieces I put together. I highly recommend joining a group to discuss this book once you have read it because I promise you – it will enhance your reading experience. I kind of felt like I was in school while reading CONVICTED, because I was a highlighting son-of-a-gun throughout the entire book – you will thank me for that tip later when you are looking for that *one thing* you were questioning…
Tony. Did you love him or did you hate him? If you read the whole trilogy, I think it’s entirely possible for one to grow to love him, even if you hated him at first because he changes so much. We (the reader) learn so much about him as the story unfolds; it is difficult to even connect the Tony we once knew with the Tony we have grown to know today – we learn things that change everything. Remember that I said I need therapy? Yes, well, I am a sick bitch and I loved the “Bastard Tony“ from the first book, so if you hated him, give him another chance – he’s a changed man!
In true Aleatha fashion, there are quite a few jaw-dropping moments – I promise this is one puzzle that will leave you thinking for days and weeks, maybe even months.
