From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a suspenseful thriller about secrets and deception, passion and love, choices and consequences.

Every action has consequences.

Waking in an unfamiliar bedroom in a luxurious mansion, Claire Nichols is terrified to discover that a chance encounter led her into the cruel hands of her abductor, Anthony Rawlings. Claire has no understanding of why she's there, but it's been made abundantly clear--she is now his acquisition and every action has consequences.

Learn the rules to survive.

Facing incomprehensible circumstances, Claire must learn to survive her new reality--every aspect of her livelihood depends upon the tall, dark-eyed tycoon who is a true master of deception. Driven by unknown demons, he has no tolerance for imperfection, in any aspect of his life, including his recent acquisition. Anthony may appear to the world as a handsome, benevolent businessman, but in reality Claire knows firsthand that he's a menacing, controlling captor with very strict rules: do as you're told, public failure is not an option, and appearances are of the utmost importance.

Captivate the captor.

To fit together the pieces of the puzzle, Claire must follow his rules. Will her plan work, or will Anthony become enthralled by Claire's beauty, resilience, and determination, changing the game forever? If that happens, will either of them survive the consequences?

Nobody ever did or ever will escape the consequences of his choices.--Alfred A. Montapert

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

Anthony Rawlings is pure evil, disguised in an expensive suit and a smoking hot body. When Claire Nichols wakes up trapped in her bedroom, she has no idea the horrors she is about to endure, or what she is willing to do to survive. This book is completely different than anything I have ever or will ever read. The story is unique, and while you may hate the characters and what they are doing, you will absolutely love this book. It is extremely well written and everything is clearly planned out. The depths to which Tony has gone in order to seek retribution are absolutely mind blowing. So many emotions were felt while reading this story. I was anxious to the point that I was biting my nails, and angry to the point that I wanted to pull my hair out and scream. I was unsure of where this book was going to go, and also unsure of how I wanted it to end because be warned there will be no HEA for these two, nor would you want there to be! And the end, OH the end, brilliant and enraging all at once. Absolutely looking forward to reading the rest of this series.

This is not a love story. This is not a romance. What this is, is a totally brilliant mind fuck. I had no idea what to expect when I was gifted this book, except that I had to read it. Around 20 pages in I had to text my friend and ask what in the holy name of god had she given me to read and would we still be friends after this. I LOVED THIS BOOK! It is sick and twisted and just when you think you know what is coming, the author pulls the rug from under your feet. I was on the edge of seat the entire time I was reading. I stayed up late and got up early because I just had to know what happened!

If a Gillian Flynn book and a Tarynn Fisher book had a baby it would be Consequences.

5 stars and a  bottle of strong dark whiskey, you’re gonna need it! Enjoy!
