Review: Truth ( Consequences #2 ) by Aleatha Romig

Truth by Aleatha Romig

Claire survived the consequences. 

Through strength and compartmentalization, Claire Nichols captivated her captor. Though Anthony Rawlings thought he taught Claire to behave, his domination became desire, and his obsession morphed into love. Or was it? When her choices pushed Anthony's relentless vendetta too far, Claire barely survived the consequences. 

Discover the truth.

Now, armed with new information and more questions than answers, Claire works to uncover the truth behind the dangerous game at play. As she begins anew, she must decide whom she can truly trust, especially with a new set of players on the move.

New set of rules.

With everything to lose and a manipulative game master controlling the board, Claire and Tony duel by a new set of rules. When thrust together once again, can they learn to trust each other to overcome new dangers? Or will this be Tony's second attempt at domination? Can Claire resist the man she'd never before been able to resist? Hatred and love. Deception and truth. Old habits and new beginnings. As this real-life game of chess plays out, past sins will come to light and new secrets will be revealed. With so much riding on each move, the stakes have never been higher.

All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered. The trick is to discover them. - Gallolao




It took me forever to read Book 1 because 80% of the book is boring. When I started Book 2, I put on hold after 10% because it was boring too. But then I gave it another go and once I reached 25% whereby the great Anthony Rawlings came into the picture, it was un-put-down-able.

I won't say that I totally love this one because there are still some parts, which I find boring, especially the whole Sophia and Derek's POV. I think I know what is their role by the end of it, but I still don't think they warrant so many chapters dedicated to their relationship. I ended up skipping their pages.

Rating 4/5
