Series: Consequences #3
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!
Now this one rounds it all out and gives us an ending. This one I have to say was good but I can honestly say I wasn’t a big fan of the back and forth. I just wanted it to start where the other left off and let it play out. 🙂 I know that the way it was written made more sense but I was confused there for a minute I couldn’t figure out why we were in 2016 at the beginning. We don’t know what happened all we know at the beginning is that Claire is in a mental institute and is not talking and her sister is taking care of her daughter.
Then the next chapter was in the past that took place right where the last book took place. We get to find out what exactly happened, how things played out, what was going on and what is to come.
We find out who is behind everything and why things are the way they are. There were some things that were just crazy and out there I wasn’t sure how things were going to play out but I am glad that I stuck it out. Have to say that the only thing about it all is how the ending came to play… kind of disappointed. I think I wanted a HUGE thing and although there was a big thing…just didn’t play out the way I had expected.
I am so glad that we got an epilouge with this one! I felt like there was a good ending. It felt complete…that is until that last little section. I am not 100% sure what is going to happen if we will get more later or not but I am intrigued! We are going to be getting more books though. They will be novellas of the books from Anthony’s POV. I am interested to see how things are played out in that aspect. To know what he was thinking, but I am usually not a big fan of books redone in another POV. We will have to wait and see how things go though. I am pretty sure I will be reading them! 🙂
