When she first arrived to his home, her goal was survival. Through strength and compartmentalization Claire captivated her captor. Her resilience in the face of his rule threatened Anthony’s well developed plan. Domination became desire and power turned to love.
Their passion and adoration in a world of opulence appeared perfect. Yet, reality was a roller coaster of emotion. Claire’s world teetered on the edge of sanity as Antony monitored her every move. When given the opportunity to flee, Claire drove away. A fateful decision which set a well laid plan into motion.
However, unbeknownst to either of them, there were others who saw past the perfect facade of Anthony Rawlings. There were others who saw the TRUTH.-Goodreads
And here we go….
So I thought I was lost in a roller coaster of emotions with ‘Consequences’. That book RUINED me in the most amazing ways. I had no idea what I was going into with ‘Truth’ especially with the cliffhanger setting we were left to process. I couldn’t sleep until I delve into this book. I was haunted thinking of Tony and Claire and what could possibly be next for them. I mean how do you come back from that?!?!
“In their figurative game of chess, Anthony Rawlings had Claire in check. Every move she made, he countered.”
Months after reading I am still coming to terms with my feelings. I found myself disturbed by how much I loved Tony despite what a sinister, calculating, cruel man he could be. I don’t completely forgive him for what he put Claire through and yet I am utterly smitten with him. There were moments where I was so torn by what my mind was telling me I should feel for him and what my heart felt.
“I have made some bad decisions… and done some things I regret in my life… but without a doubt… what I regret the most… is divorcing you. If you tell me there is hope, that one day you’ll be Mrs. Rawlings again, I will wait.”
There has to be a good psychologist out there that could help me come to terms with my love for Tony Rawlings. I know I am not the only one that is as fascinated and as intrigued by him. Especially Claire.
“I know you enjoy coffee, I’d offer you some. But, the last time I got you coffee, it didn’t work out so well for me.”Tony smirked, “God, Claire you’re something else. I can’t imagine anyone else joking about that.”
For the record I LOVED Claire in Consequences but in Truth she is a badass. Powered by anger and revenge she is not a woman to be messed with. Tony’s realization that Claire will not go down again without a fight is a turning point from him. Instead of wanting meek Claire he wants her and her fury.
“Mr Anthony Rawlings had a lesson to learn and Claire claimed the role as teacher.”
This series just keeps getting better and better. I have no idea what I will do with myself until Convicted is released. I just pray that Tony finds true redemption and he and Claire end up together once and for all :::hint hint Aleatha::::
