Tour Stop: TRUTH by Aleatha Roming ~ Review/Giveaway

Title: Truth
Author: Aleatha Roming
Hosted by: Hardcover Therapy

Claire Nichols endured the CONSEQUENCES of Anthony Rawlings’ vendetta. 
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. Conspiracy and unfulfilled promises result in an early prison release for Claire. Not just a release – a pardon. According to the law, her crime never happened! 
Will it be that easy? Faced with freedom from her past... can Claire seize it? Can she build a new life, mend her broken spirit, become the woman she once was, and seek her own revenge? Or is it all a game? And does the game master have different plans?
How does Sophia Burke fit into the puzzle that is Tony and Claire? Will her presence affect the future of this well esteemed man? Can he dominate twice? Is that his goal? 
TRUTH continues the tumultuous saga of CONSEQUENCES, introduces new players, and uncovers more intrigue. Aleatha Romig skillfully weaves past transgressions through current deception to create a fervent world of obsessed desire. In this reality can an all-consuming relationship survive? 
When buried sins are discovered they threaten not only Tony and Claire’s future -- but their very lives! Will the TRUTH be revealed in time?

This book was so unbelievably brilliant! Not a freaking dull moment from start to finish. After finishing CONSEQUENCES, I did not start reading TRUTH right away. Why? Because this series is so powerful and evokes so many emotions that quite frankly I needed to take sometime to process it all.

"Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves." -Confucius

Claire is set on getting her revenge for all the wrong Tony has done to her. I am thinking hell yes, hang him up by his balls! But I was also thinking that as conniving as Tony is, this isn't going to end well for her. As the layers of this story unfold, I lean towards not hating Tony as much as I did in CONSEQUENCES. Maybe in his own sick and twisted way he really does love her.

"You cannot make the same mistake twice. Because the second time you make it, it is not a mistake, it is a choice."

Does Claire get her revenge or does she fall back into the same old trap? This is the question I had through most of the book. The answer is a little of both, depending on your view point.

There are so many different characters that come into play through out this book. You must pay very close attention to each and every one to learn how they are all woven together. Every time I thought I knew what was coming, up popped another new twist.

Of course it would end with another freaking cliff hanger! I still love you Aleatha but dammit, I want more! 5 Amazing, Mind Blowing Stars!!!
