Blog Tour #Review and #Giveaway: Behind His Eyes Convicted: THE MISSING YEARS by @AleathaRomig 5 STARS

Behind His Eyes Convicted: THE MISSING YEARS by Aleatha Romig


THE MISSING YEARS is the final piece to Aleatha Romig’s CONSEQUENCES SERIES puzzle. Follow the twists and turns as secrets are revealed, consequences are delivered, and the future is shown.

In CONVICTED we saw what happened that fateful afternoon at the Rawlings Estate. Now experience the shocking repercussions firsthand. More than a companion, this full-length novel fills in the gap of time that was only mentioned, beginning when Claire Nichols forgets and seen through the eyes of collective men (the HIS is plural).

In THE MISSING YEARS, readers will see Anthony Rawlings fight for what belongs to him and cope with the reality of his past. Watch as Harrison Baldwin discovers the truth that threatens his beliefs, and as John Vandersol comes to terms with his revelations. Witness Phillip Roach, as he decides with whom his loyalties lay, and Brent Simmons, as he demonstrates the meaning of friendship—no matter the cost.

As the pieces of the puzzle fall into place, BEHIND HIS EYES CONVICTED goes beyond. This final installment of the series offers a glimpse into the future of the lives that will forever be changed because there was a man who...

Once upon a time, signed a napkin that he knew was a contract. As an esteemed businessman, he forgot one very important rule—he forgot to read the fine print. It wasn’t an acquisition to own another person as he’d previously assumed. It was an agreement to acquire a soul.
—Aleatha Romig, CONVICTED

BEHIND HIS EYES CONVICTED also contains a complete glossary of characters and a timeline that covers the entire series. If you have read New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig’s CONSEQUENCES, TRUTH, and CONVICTED, you must learn the rest of the story: BEHIND HIS EYES CONVICTED: THE MISSING YEARS!


My rating: 5 of 5 stars

You only thought you were done. But it’s not over until Aleatha Romig and Tony say it’s over.

I thought I had closure until I read BEHIND HIS EYES – CONVICTED: THE MISSING YEARS. Now, I have closure. It’s amazing how something you didn’t even realize you were missing can become exactly what you needed—even more amazing that Aleatha Romig once again hit this book out of the park with exactly what CONSEQUENCES needed to tie up the series.

BEHIND HIS EYES – CONVICTED: THE MISSING YEARS is a full-length novel told from multiple male points-of-view. We get to experience the missing years through Tony, Brent, Phil, John, and Harry. Each of the men add a crucial piece of the puzzle that the reader had to trust rather than experience when told through Claire’s point-of-view. Together the men give detailed accounts of exactly what happened while Claire was mentally hibernating.

We experience the days after Claire shot Catherine—including the initial public opinion that Claire must have been trying to shoot Tony since she had only ever spoken highly of Catherine and everyone knew of Claire and Tony’s sordid past. We follow Tony’s trial, Harry’s dedication to justice even if it was for someone he hated or against someone he loved, John and Emily’s struggle to protect and support Claire, and what made Patricia a possible suspect in continuing Catherine’s legacy. Most importantly, the reader gets to experience Tony finally coming to terms with exactly what he’d put Claire through in the past and what loving her needed to look like in the future. As someone who never quite recovered from Tony’s initial treatment of Claire, I really appreciated getting to experience not only Tony’s evolution but especially John’s as I expected him, of all people, to hate Tony forever. To see what made John slowly open his mind and heart to accepting Tony as part of the family was critical to me.

The CONSEQUENCES series is so intricate and complicated that it now seems glaringly obvious that it couldn’t be complete after CONVICTED. CONVICTED took an already elaborate story and added 20 shocking twists—all told from the perspective of someone who was essentially missing for the majority of it. BEHIND HIS EYES – CONVICTED: THE MISSING YEARS goes back and provides rich detail, life, and emotion to a complex plot. I am completely blown away by Aleatha Romig’s creativity in constructing the perfect ending to a phenomenal series.
