    One thought on “Consequences”

    1. 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 [...]

    2. 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.JUSTBravo 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 individu [...]

    3. FULL REVIEW IS NOW UP!!!!! 4.5 starsHOLY. FREAKING. MIND FUCK.WHAT DID I JUST READ ? ? ?That ENDING!!! I mean just ummm… *speechless* I have lost sleep. My mind has been utterly toyed with. And I still have no freaking clue how I should feel about Tony Rawlings. To the rest of the world, Anthony Rawlings is a mega-successful self-made billionaire who donated to charity, is always perfectly presented and never puts a foot wrong. To Claire Nicols, he is her captor. Her abductor. Her tormentor. A [...]

    4. 1.5 stars. Yes, I'm giving this book an extra half star because the ending was a little bit of a head trip. But wow, did I have a hard time staying awake through the majority of the middle. Stuff started to draaaaag, big time. Fairly spoiler-free review. I will mention the kidnapping and minor plot/character points, but I think most of this is a given, considering the book summary.Before anyone throws popcorn at me, let me clarify that I did get the concept of the story. I understood the plot an [...]

    5. The 'Consequences' series has to be one of my all-time favorite series. If you follow my reviews, you know that I love disturbing, dark stories that feature nearly irredeemable heroes. This is one of those stories. I first read this book years ago and I was blown away. It is one that I find myself returning to again and again. When I can't seem to find a new book that is holding my interest, this is one of my "go-tos". It is like a little piece of reading heaven for a twisted soul like mine. I h [...]

    7. Follow my rules: 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.OK, so I know it’s a well-worn, much overused reviewer’s cliché but I’m going to have to say it – THIS BOOK OWNED ME! I really did abandon all my responsibilities, including sleeping, as this book consumed me from the very second I started right through to finishing it in the wee small hours when I had to be up at 6 [...]

    8. First off, I had tomy thoughts before writing this review.'Good morning, Claire.'Was not sure what to expect with this one. I was on a high and on a low throughout the read.“What is love? Love is when one person knows all of your secrets, deepest, darkest, most dreadful secrets of which no one else in the world knows. And yet in the end, that one person does not think any less of you.”I am not going to say too much in my review as I think folks are better off just going straight in not knowi [...]

    12. 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 d [...]

    13. WTH!!!! I WASN’T EXPECTING THAT ENDING!!!! The last 10 percent of this book deserved the 5 stars. It was just so shocking and crazy. While reading this book, all I wanted to do was throw my kindle at the wall because I was so freaking frustrated. This book was so good!! It’s a dark, intense, twisted, emotional mind fuck kind of story. I thought I had the ending figured out and then BAM!!! something totally different happens. MIND BLOWN!!!!At first, I felt really bad for Claire because she wa [...]

    14. "Life is not what it's supposed to be. It's what it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference." ~ Virginia SatirTwo words to describe this book?Hmm Let me thinkOh, who am I kidding Obviously, my response would be:First of all, let me just say Consequences was an INSANE, INTENSE and INTRIGUING roller coaster ride AND I LOVED EVERY SECOND OF IT!!! My emotions were pretty much all over the place while I was reading it. They went from rage to disbelief to shock to confusion to anythi [...]

    15. *This Review was updated June 2013*STOP THE MADNESS!!! I get giddy just thinking about the level of excitement and frustration I felt when I first read CONSEQUENCES. I was a little crazed by the "not knowing" what was going to happen next, but that is half the fun, right? I struggled with wanting to strangle and hug Aleatha Romig for creating a story that elicited such powerful emotions in me. I was one of the first people to review this book on and according to the author, Aleatha Romig, I was [...]

    16. CONSEQUENCE (noun)-A result or effect of an action or condition.Warning for would-be-readers--This is not a ROMANCE.Then what is this?A pschycological thriller with mind-games?A mind-boggling puzzle?Or shall I simply go with the others and call this a MIND F*UCK?"The fade into conciousness happens slowly"(And thus the game begins!)Claire fades into conciousness.She can feel the warmth of soft sheets and a thick comforter against her skin.And there is something nagging at the back of her mind.Som [...]

It had something but it was so beyond my reach until I reached the end and I was like 'YES, Tony is crazy.'"I hate Tony more than I hate Carol from Reason to Breathe and Ashley, Keesha, Carrie, Mr. Owen from Pushing the Limits put together!!" were one of my few first th [...]

    18. Oh God…How do I review this book?Do I like stories with over the top assholes, stalkers, controlling freaks, abductors? I DO. THE MORE LUNATIC THE BETTER.Do I like heroes that behave like monsters, but they have a soft spot for their woman and they sincerely feel guilty when they hurt her? I DODo I like tortured heroines that at some point develop a backbone and they fight back? I DODo I like stories with Stockholm syndrome where the girl falls in love with her rich and famous abductor and the [...]

    21. May is the month of Buddy-reads!! With no prior knowledge of this book, other than it is free on Kobo, I decided to join my girlies, Nenia, Kat & Heather for this one.Start Date: May 18, 2015 1 StarReview to come. after:Review, of a sort: (I am not wasting much bloody time on this one, guys.

Instead I give you this.)How to become a victim of [...]

    22. I've been on the brink of committing a terrible crime. I've been sorely tempted to destroy this book. That's how enraged I was by its contents. Sexual abuse is not sexy. Mental abuse is not sexy. Physical abuse is not sexy. (view spoiler)[ He kidnapped her, beat her, raped her, threatened her friends and family. But wait it gets worse. Despite his violent outbursts and psychotic behavior, she falls in love with him. How wonderful.(hide spoiler)]I love me some good villains. I've been known to ro [...]

    23. 3.5 I'm still questioning my sanity after reading this starsShe made a decision, and that decision would have consequences.How do I even begin to review this book? What a dark, torturous, crazy, fucked up ride! I'm not sure I'm right in the head after finishing it. I'm not sure I'm right in the head for even starting it? I couldn't put it down. I looked like one of those crazy people that talked to themselves through the whole thing. I must have been yelling and swearing in 5 different languages [...]

    24. I started this book because it had been compared to The Dark Duet Series by C.J. Roberts , which is one of my fav series of the year.It was NOT at all like it.Most people smack a big 5 stars on this book because it is a bloody mindfuck. I'll be the first to acknowledge that the best part of this book was the the last 15%. I didn't see it coming, it blew my mind. However that last bit didn't want a jump from a 1 star book to a 5 star book. The ending really only gave it another 2 star.This book i [...]

    25. 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 wr [...]

    26. 4 stars! Consequences is one of those books that has been sitting on my kindle for years, and I always meant to read it but you know how it is. I see another book and I'm like:Anyways after my girlie Jasmine told me about her love for it, and after meeting this lovely author 3 times, and now that I'm not as afraid of dark books anymore (that's a lie I'm still scared), I decided to crack this one open. And you know what?I could not put this book back down!No kidding, I pretty much read straight t [...]

    27. 5 STARS ★★★★★ OMFG!!!! WHAT A STORY!!!!![image error]Honestly, I don’t even know where to begin to properly describe my feelings about this book without coming across as a raging lunatic. In fact, every sentence I think up is riddled with words like FUCKING HELL, MOTHERFUCKER, COCK-SUCKING BASTARD, SPAWN OF SATAN… are you getting the picture here?“Actions have consequences, I have told you that. Why is that difficult for you to understand?” I have not felt this much hatred for [...]

    28. This was my second attempt at reading Consequences. I'm glad I decided to come back to it. My GR buddies are excellent manipulators! Thanks girls!I loved this book. Yes, that's right! I said it!It made me feel stuff! All kinds of stuff. Claire was real to me. Tony, with his exceptionally void eyes reminded me of Heathcliff and his eyes, dark windows to the soul. Tony's black eyes made me shiver in fear whenever he was close to Claire. Poor Claire. She suffered like all humanity, because humanity [...]

    29. Anthony Rawlings is the biggest prick that I have ever had the NON-pleasure of coming in contact with. Had my Mother not taught me better, I would be plotting how to rip off his genitals. :)My review will be featuring (Note: I say FEATURING not ANSWERING.) the four main questions that have been plaguing everyone's mind since/before reading this book. - Let us dive right in.What the fuck did I just read?Consequences is all about the cause and effect of people. (So whoever marked the genre as BDSM [...]

    30. Well.well.well "Hello, Claire." I swear Hannibal Lector came to mind on more than one occasion in this book. I'd like to say the second time around reading this I enjoyed it just as much. Unfortunately, I dropped my rating to four stars. Still, that's a great book, just not stellar. I found myself bored with all the insane details throughout this book. By around 60% I was skimming.ges upon pages of skimming. I don't need a play by play of their diet, her wardrobe, what they did every minute of e [...]
