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

    Wow.... Had to admit Clarie had me angry bowing to Tony's wishes. But I couldn't put the book down. Ive read several books by this author and as always she delivers...great writer. Creative and keeps you guessing. I have to say I have never received a free book from her and didn't want more. Definitely recommend👌🏾👍🏽
  • Too much unnecessary detail

    By Book Magnet
    Although disturbing but well-written, it provided unnecessary details such as an entire interview article.

    I enjoyed this book. It captured my attention and held it throughout the story and I am ready for the next book!
  • Good but slow to start

    By Jamiebitch
    The whole series is a good read. The story starts of agonizingly slow but if you can get past it the story is very good and I enjoyed reading it. The first two books felt like they took me forever to read. After that it was fine.
  • Horrible book.

    By Paiges2turn
    Kidnapping, rape, stalking, physical and emotional abuse...and completely boring characters. I hated him, and detested her. Pathetic. And there's nothing sexy about any of the above.
  • I hated this book

    By Dezona
    It's appalling to imagine someone falling in love for their captor and abuser. The leading man rapes her, beats her to pieces and she falls in love for him?? Are you kidding me?? This author needs to have her head examined. I was hoping she would be able to scape and put him in prison, but no... this is horrible. Don't waste your money like I did.
  • Addicting!

    By Aybentzz
    Please, please read this book. You will NOT regret it. It was so addicting that my boyfriend had to actually take my phone away from me because I couldn't stop reading! The twists and turns the author added to keep you intrigued worked very, very well. The ONLY part that I "skimmed" through was one of the vacations that was described. I was more so excited for Claire & Tony to get home and back to their dramatic lives. Long story short, this was a fantastic read. As soon as I finished, I purchased book #2. Beginning as soon as I finish this review!!! Job well done, Ms. Romig!!!
