I wasn't sure about buying this audiobook, but I'm glad I did. There is so much more to this story than abusive sex - the dynamics of control and surv..Show More »ivable are well written. The story made me think of people I have known or worked with whose spouses were virtual prisoners.
I bought the Kindle version because I love the quotes at the beginning of each chapter. There is also a reading companion, "BEHIND HIS EYES – CONSEQUENCES," by Aleatha Romig, "recommended to be read after completing all of the CONSEQUENCES SERIES: Consequences, Truth, and Convicted. It is not a standalone book and should not be read as such." There are upcoming releases of Behind His Eyes for "Truth" and "Convicted."
And the narrator was great. I couldn't stop listening. This book isn't for everyone, so you may want to check out the other review comments (on audible and amazon) and listen to the sample.
Again this was from Tony's point of view, it has been awhile since I listened to 24 hours of book #2 so it refreshed my memory somewhat. I don't know..Show More » what is going to happen but I am ready to get this over with. I do love this mystery and the characters but it has been so prolonged that I am losing my interest. And I see she has added a book 5....ugh!
I feel like this book is summed up by Claire nicely:
"Some would argue that a foundation built on kidnapping, isolation, violence, an yes -e..Show More »ven rape- would never stand. I must disagree. We lived through hell and came out the other side. Like the song says, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. I can't imagine anyone having a stronger foundation than ours."
Yeah, all that rapey stuff, and him killing your parents, etc. was all just a big misunderstanding and he's sorry so lets have warm fluffy feelings from now on.
I'm sorry. No. Just... no.
I'm astounded by the 5 star reviews. Why is that a guy who does such horrific things get's a pass because he's a millionaire? Don't get me wrong... I've read and enjoyed a few kidnapper stories (heck most Highland romances involve stealing a lass) and BDSM stuff with consenting adults but I'm horrified that everyone seems to think that the happily ever after in this book is okay. Just... no.
Tony cannot, I repeat, can not be redeemed. You're trying too hard Romig. Pinning everything on the maid. Oh, and I get it, because I suffered through all the back story. I hated Claire and her stupidity but then that hated turned to a simple meh. And Tony turning a new leaf is sweet and all, but no, I for one cannot forget what he has done. You've tortured your leading lady so much that even with this HEA, I'll be she crack within the decade and kills herself. This is not happy. You can't force it.
This whole book is a horrific trainwreck. At least I want to say it is... to be honest I checked out and just read it for closure. Other than writing a review to warn others, I really don't care. Maybe it's because I've compartmentalized it.
It really took me this forth book to make me better understand the previous three books of Consequences series. And I'm glad there's psychological exp..Show More »laination behind a man's cruelty, and the author also showed how much Anthony Rawlings atoning his sins and later prove himself a good person that deserves better life in the future.
I have LOVED this series and have waited for this last part. It wasn't as action packed as the last ones but I enjoyed it all the same. I've thoroughl..Show More »y enjoyed Romy Nordlinger's narration all the way through. I love her voice and her characterizations and emotions are always 100 percent.
