Review - Beyond the Consequences by Aleatha Romig

Title: Beyond the Consequences
Series: Consequences #5
Author: Aleatha Romig
Release Date: January 15, 2015

From New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes more of the suspenseful romantic thriller about secrets and deception, passion and love, choices and consequences.

Secrets and deception

As the pieces of their puzzle come together, Anthony and Claire Rawlings continue to defy the odds. Together they overcame an incomprehensible beginning. Apart they endured unimaginable heartache. Reunited with family and friends, their journey continues as they navigate a dangerous world where secrets threaten to destroy what they hold the most dear.

Passion and love

Tony and Claire turn up the heat as sparks fly, passion rages, and love prevails. With only a dark glance or devilish grin, the fire that sparked in an isolated suite, continues to burn. Though no longer willing to be less than Tony’s equal in life, behind closed doors only one man makes the rules.

Choices and consequences

The safety of the Rawlings family is not debatable, and only Phillip Roach can assure that they are not disappointed. Learn how he leads old friends and new associates through the dangerous world of delusion and revenge. The choices he makes for both the family and his personal life will have consequences.

Beyond the Consequences is a novel that began as the novella, A Peek Beyond the Consequences, in a limited-release anthology, Breathless. Since its publication in 2014, Beyond the Consequences has more than tripled in length with more action, heat, and secrets to reveal. Learn once and for all the identity and fate of the sender of the Rawls-Nichols letters as you join the Rawlings for a special surprise!

Theirs was a long, complicated story with a monster and a knight. What made their story unique was that these two players were the same person. — Aleatha Romig, Convicted


Ahhh. Diving back in to Tony and Claire feels like a sick twisted homecoming of sorts. Like most people, I have a love/hate relationship with these two. You want to slap 'em, then they kind of grow on you, then you have to shake your head and say, "no, I am falling for the mind screwing trap!" Andddd then you end up loving them again anyway. These two have been on QUITE a journey and this book was just more drama for ya mama.

"Their paths had taken them on some dark journeys and somehow they found their way back together."

And I have loved every word of it. 

Aleatha's writing is very descriptive and easily paints pictures in my mind of people and places. She is the first author that had me immediately calling my best friend after reading the first book in this series, because of its absolutely mind boggling ending. 

The closer I got to the end of this story, the more tears were shed. Tony as a father is amazingly adorable. If I was ever in the same room with him I would give him a big ole hug, after I slapped him around a little (see: Consequences 1, 2 and 3).

Without giving anything away, this latest installment in the Rawling's saga, has just as many twists and surprises as the others. Well worth diving back into this series.

And it has Phil. Everyone loves Phil. *Sigh* 5 (demanding) stars from me
