Book #1 of the bestselling Consequences series
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

The first third of the book sucked me in. My mind—unable to keep up with the speed that my eyes wanted to read! Then, the middle of the book slowed way down and I found myself bored of reading blah details and descriptions that seemed unnecessary. But, thankfully, I’m not a quitter! I committed myself to this book, and boy am I glad I did! The last third of the book was filled with exciting and shocking twists, and major “a-ha” moments! I am a fan and will be reading many more of Aleatha’s titles.
This was just..... Meh. The characters were boring, the plot was boring. I would skip 50 or 60 pages and still didn't miss anything. You could read the last 75 pages and still miss nothing. He's mad, she's weak, he's a control freak, she's an idiot. There ya go, that's the book. It could've been caviar on a carr's water cracker, but instead was deer brains on a saltine. Even the sex scenes were a let down. Like the batteries dying before you finish. Or discovering that your roommate drank your last beer.
Too much unnecessary detail
Although disturbing but well-written, it provided unnecessary details such as an entire interview article.
