Publisher's Summary

Anthony Rawlings had a plan - to teach Claire Nichols to behave. Claire Nichols had a plan - to survive! In an unfamiliar bedroom within a luxurious mansion, Claire Nichols wakes to memories of a brutal abduction. All of her recollections have one common denominator, the man she just met - Anthony Rawlings. Unbeknownst to Claire, Anthony has had her in his sights for a long time. Every action has consequences - and his actions resulted in their chance meeting. Facing incomprehensible circumstances, Claire must learn to survive as she comes to terms with her new reality - every aspect of her livelihood is now dependent upon the tall, dark-haired, dark-eyed tycoon. Anthony may appear to the world as a prosperous, benevolent, kind businessman, but in reality Claire learns he is also a menacing, controlling captor with very strict rules: Do as you're told, public failure is not an option, and don't divulge private information. Failure to follow these rules, and more, is met with serious consequences.
In an effort to earn her freedom, Claire learns her lessons well, and before long, she unknowingly captivates her captor. Anthony/Tony reluctantly becomes enthralled with Claire's beauty, resilience, and determination. Their interaction instigates strong emotions - including fear, anger, love, and lust - as their journey flows into uncharted waters of intrigue and passion.
From the opening criminal abduction, through the twists and turns, to the unlikely romantic thrills, the suspense climaxes as Aleatha Romig utilizes vivid detail, allowing this novel to unfold like a movie. Can you put the pieces of the puzzle together? Claire Nichols abduction wasn't a random act - did she learn her lessons well enough? Will these unlikely lovers remain true - or will she learn the truth before it's too late?

A Severe & Horrific Case Of Stockholm Syndrome!!

For every action there is a consequence, thats what Claire learned from her time with Anthony a self made billionaire ... Its starts simple, a guy meets a girl and asks her out, but here this guy is called Anthony, and he is evil and mental... He forces Claire into a sick and mental relationship with him and during that time Claire suffered through severe physical and mental abuse.

Anthony convinced her that she has entered a legal binding agreement to work for him until she pays off her debt to him, from car and bank loans which he paid off, and when the abuse starts she started falling into a severe case of stockholm syndrome.

One thing regarding this book, before i came to its ending, I thought it was too long for nothing, but when i got to its ending, i understood why Aleatha Romig made it this long... Halfway through Consequences you will think "Ahhh, this is whats going to happen in the end" believe me thats not it, its ending was an OHHHHHHHHHHH S%^T moment, I didn't think such thing could happen... am just amazed of its ending.

Lets talk about the therapy part now.. Many reviewers said they can't go to sleep and they need therapy now... I agree, I'm going now to book my appointment.. You have to understand one thing, you will reach a point saying "Whats waw about this?" I did, but when you get to its ending you will understand that every action has a consequence!!!

Narration was really good..

Already got the 2nd book and reading/listening to it right now. Would like to now the consequences of Consequences :D

Chilling

I wasn't sure about buying this audiobook, but I'm glad I did. There is so much more to this story than abusive sex - the dynamics of control and survivable are well written. The story made me think of people I have known or worked with whose spouses were virtual prisoners.

I bought the Kindle version because I love the quotes at the beginning of each chapter. There is also a reading companion, "BEHIND HIS EYES – CONSEQUENCES," by Aleatha Romig, "recommended to be read after completing all of the CONSEQUENCES SERIES: Consequences, Truth, and Convicted. It is not a standalone book and should not be read as such." There are upcoming releases of Behind His Eyes for "Truth" and "Convicted."

And the narrator was great. I couldn't stop listening. This book isn't for everyone, so you may want to check out the other review comments (on audible and amazon) and listen to the sample.
