Consequences go inside Books I must say, it took me a second to wrap my head around the purpose of this story. It is NOT erotica, NOT romance. I don't say this negatively either. I mention it because this book is often compared to mine and it perhaps isn't a fair comparison. A lot of MY scenes ARE written in such a way to be titillating. The scenes in THIS BOOK are not written to arouse the reader and are spare in the details during the sexual acts. I don't think the author's intent was titillation. I believe this story is a straight-up psychological thriller.I've read a lot of reviews where people are angry about the story because its so brutal and not 'sexy' or 'romantic'. It's not intended to be. If you're looking for hot sex scenes and hotter alpha males, this book is not for you. I like a smexy story featuring bare chested alphas chasing down honey's just as much as the next girl, but I also don't expect all my books to be about that.Once I accepted the fact this book was not INTENDED to make me feel tingly in my naughty bits it took on a whole new shape - one that I really enjoyed.It's very smartly written and I really give credit to the author for taking her readers into the depths of such depravity with Tony Rawlings. As a villain, he's exceptional. He is unapologetically evil.Claire makes a lot of stupid mistakes early on. However, I enjoyed reading about her becoming a stronger and more nimble-minded person. I believe I'll enjoy her character much more in the second book. Round one, I'm afraid, belongs to Mr. Rawlings.. Every action has consequences.Waking in an unfamiliar bedroom in a luxurious mansion, Claire Nichols is terrified to discover that a chance encounter led her into the cruel hands of her abductor, Anthony Rawlings Claire has no understanding of why she s there, but it s been made abundantly clear she is now his acquisition and every action has consequences.Learn the rulesEvery action has consequences.Waking in an unfamiliar bedroom in a luxurious mansion, Claire Nichols is terrified to discover that a chance encounter led her into the cruel hands of her abductor, Anthony Rawlings Claire has no understanding of why she s there, but it s been made abundantly clear she is now his acquisition and every action has consequences.Learn the rules to survive.Facing incomprehensible circumstances, Claire must learn to survive her new reality every aspect of her livelihood depends upon the tall, dark eyed tycoon who is a true master of deception Driven by unknown demons, he has no tolerance for imperfection, in any aspect of his life, including his recent acquisition Anthony may appear to the world as a handsome, benevolent businessman, but in reality Claire knows firsthand that he s a menacing, controlling captor with very strict rules do as you re told, public failure is not an option, and appearances are of the utmost importance.Captivate the captor.To fit together the pieces of the puzzle, Claire must follow his rules Will her plan work, or will Anthony become enthralled by Claire s beauty, resilience, and determination, changing the game forever If that happens, will either of them survive the consequences Nobody ever did or ever will escape the consequences of his choices Alfred A Montapert. A viral Book Consequences I. JUST. WANT. TO. SCREAM.Never in my entire life have a I read a book that left me feeling so ANGRY, CONFUSED, REPULSED, EMOTIONALLY DRAINED AND JUST.......JUST.....Bravo Ms. Rothig! Bravo!Let me just start by stating that Consequences by Aleatha Romig is no light and fluffy read. It is likely one of the most sinister books that I've read..... EVER. My mind is still reeling and trying to take in all that I've read. I'm still unsure whether to think whether Ms. Romig is a genius or a cruel and perverse individual. Frankly, I'm leaning more towards genius..... I think. I can honestly say that this book did not sit comfortably with me. It was such an exhausting mindfrak! That was the point, wasn't it Ms. Romig???Do not go into Consequences thinking that you will get a HEA. It is simply not a book that will provide you with one. I was ok with this. This book is about a psychotic, possibly mentally unstable, monster who is hell bent on revenge. He takes this beautiful and vivacious twenty-six year old woman and slowly breaks her. Anthony Rawlings is a successful, handsome individual who was also a stalker and a predator. At no point did I wish for him to be redeemed and/or change for Claire's sake. No! I loathed him right from the beginning and my hatred for him only increased as I kept reading. Her life was no longer in her hands, and she was somehow coming to terms with that.Claire endures more that what is imaginable at the hands of Anthony. She is kidnapped, violated, raped, abused and so much more. Claire is expected to accept her new lot in her life and simply succumb to her abuser. Anthony has approached his "dealings" with Claire like he does everything else in his life - he has planned and plotted and has left his opponent with no choice but to cease and obey. At first he only presents himself to Claire as a heartless exploiter but over time as Claire begins to do as he asks he handles her with care and gentleness. He shows Claire what she thinks is love. This dichotomy in Anthony's behaviour and character leaves Claire confused and frustrated. How can she fall in love with the same monster who violated her? I have to admit that most of my frustration with this book came from Claire's actions. WHY THE HECK DID YOU NOT SCREAM BLOODY MURDER THE FIRST TIME YOU WERE IN PUBLIC WITH HIM? WHY DID YOU NOT SEEK HELP? However, the more I thought about this the more I realized that I have never been in the situation that Claire found herself in. Who is to say that I would not act the same way? After all, Anthony Rawlings is a master manipulator!Follow my rules: number one, do as you are told, do not divulge personal information, actions have consequences, appearances are of vital importance, and public failure is not an option.Consequences is all about how actions have an effect and therefore consequences - good or bad. What happens to Claire is a consequence. I need to admit that the first half of the book was much more riveting. After the huge "accident" everything seemed to spiral into this huge pit of unbelief and frustration. As the storyline progresses, I felt that we were provided with unnecessary and needless information. Claire's inner ramblings did get tedious at times and I was so angry over the fact that she simply would not fight back that I am not certain how my kobo was not thrown across the room! What actually saved the book for me was the ending. Yes, it was a shock! But the best thing was that we finally see Claire's backbone come back and we finally get some hope that REVENGE will take place. Yes... SWEET REVENGE!Needless to say, I am anticipating book 2! I need it now!Consequences is an insane ride. If you are in the mood to be put through the ringer, give this one a try. Now I now need to go off and read something light, fluffly and freakin HAPPY! You hear me.... HAPPY!!!! Gah! The end!

  • I have no problem with erotic stories containing non consensual sex I m not a hypocrite I ve written one I have written erotic fiction for over 10 years I have argued against conservatives, against literary critics, against certain streams of feminism for the legitimacy of womens rights to carve their erotic fantasies out of a horrifically patriarchal past I have argued that we cannot suddenly purge ourselves of the semiotic language of sexual power dynamics and that they will inform the darkest [...]

  • Straight to my Best of the Best list Aleatha Romig is a genius I was so wrong about this knight in shining armor At first, I thought that Consequences would be a book about a controlling alpha male millionaire and how he romances a young, beautiful girl who is in debt and saves her, but this was not fluffy romance or an erotic novel It is the dark story of a strong young woman trapped in a very abusive relationship with a powerful man that has ulterior motives The author was very brave to write [...]
