From USA Today bestselling author Amanda Siegrist comes an exciting, edge-of-your-seat romantic suspense filled with revenge and an intense love.
Every choice has a consequence…
Detective Tate Powell is consumed by two things—the woman who managed to capture his heart with a single look and to catch the man that killed his sister. When he finds out the man he’s been seeking, the man he will kill with his bare hands, is none other than his girlfriend’s brother, he knows his entire life is over. Because nothing will stop him from seeking revenge, even if it means losing her.
Abby Forrester never knew she could fall in love so easily, but Tate slipped under her defenses without even blinking. She should’ve never confessed her brother is the man that killed his sister. But now that she has, she’ll do everything in her power to protect him from ruining his life—and from killing her brother. Even if she has to do the unthinkable. Turn against him.
“I love your sweet smile. I love your adoring laugh.”
Amanda Siegrist excels at writing romantic suspense stories that keep us guessing until the very end. She combines secrets, lies and intrigue with strong women and the men who love and protect them. Her latest book, “Dark Consequences”, features Tate and Abby, a young couple surrounded by mystery and danger. Tate is a dedicated Homicide detective who works diligently to solve his cases in order to keep his community safe. Abby was attracted to Tate from the moment they first met and she couldn’t help falling in love with him. Their connection was immediate and it seemed as if they had know each other forever. Tate was crazy about Abby too, but his mind was always on his unsolved cases, especially his latest case which involved the death of his beloved sister, Tara. He was heartbroken and would do anything to track down her killer, no matter what it took; until Abby confided in him that she suspected that her brother, Cooper, had killed his sister. Abby was brave enough to defy her brother and tell Tate the truth because Tate was her future and she couldn’t live without him. Anger tore through Tate’s body, and the urge to kill Cooper was overwhelming. He would have to choose between Abby’s love and his sister’s memory, and he needed to make a decision soon before it was too late and he lost not only his career, but the woman who made him complete.
Interesting story of a game of cat and mouse
Tate and Abby both come from rough pasts, but have worked hard to get past that and have a better life. Abby’s brother murdered Tate’s half-sister, and the beginning of the story starts with Tate going after him. The book is essentially a game of cat and mouse, but added in a romantic aspect into all the suspense. There were some twists that I did not see coming, especially towards the end! I was really torn on this book – I felt like I started it in the middle of the storyline and had no idea what had previously gone on but I wanted to know how things got to where they were! On the other hand, the suspense and intensity of this book was crazy good! The book tells us in the beginning who the killer is, but as the story goes on, gives us hints as to why, but also leaves us with questions as to why he started killing in the first place. So undecided!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
