+While this book is not reliant upon reading the others in the Consequences Series, I think it is appreciated more having read the others. If one has the background of the relationship of Claire and Tony, you understand more the characters and reasonings for decisions in RIPPLES.
I urge you to read the publisher's summary, on each book, for more details, as I'm afraid adding to it may it inadvertently reveal spoilers.
This is NOT the psychological thriller that the original CONSEQUENCES is. This is a full out dominant/submissive tale. I do not care for books with this premise – especially... grrrrrr, I cannot think of a way to communicate what bothers me without spoiling.
I was happy that Althea Romig lengthened the series – to the next generation, even though this particular installment was not for me. I do hope that Audible publishes/records further books.
This book was narrated by Eric Rolon and Kylie Stewart. I found both to be great voice performers.
Story: 3 stars
Performance: 4 stars
Overall: 3.5 stars
Credit worthy? Yes, if you are a fan of the Consequences Series.

thrilling, incomplete, I want more and that Dexter realize he was just a poppet too
2.5 stars.... I am a HUGE Aleatha Romig fan, and every single one of her books have always left me in absolute AWE of her sheer storytelling ability and mind twists.... except for RIPPLES. This book left me with a sour taste in my mouth - I didn’t find anything likeable about Dexter - he was a complete douche with his degrading pet name for Natalie (“bug”), and his warped sense of being “her King”. And well, Natalie was obviously suffering from a case of Stockholm’s Syndrome but there was never one part in this story where I felt that her love for him was believable, or that it had shifted from hate/fear to love. Everything about their relationship felt forced even when she said that she loved him. There were so many eyeroll worthy moments in this book that I couldn’t wait for it to be finally over. And towards the end, more secrets are revealed and yet there is NO resolution of them. Is there going to be another book? Does Tony come to his baby girl’s rescue?? Sooo many questions and we are left hanging with a mediocre happy for now ending. I can only hope that Ms. Romig comes up with a follow up book to tie up all these loose ends. The only thing I actually liked about this book was the return of Tony, Claire, Phil and Taylor. It saddens me to say that I wish I could get back the hours I wasted listening to this audiobook.
