❝I want my happily ever after.❞
Mr. Anthony Rawlings ‘Tony,’ the man you absolutely LOVE to HATE is back again! REVEALED, The Missing Years is the last piece of this dark, twisted, emotionally draining, and incredibly beautiful puzzle. We call this puzzle the roller coaster life of Tony and Claire. This time it is NOT ONLY behind his eyes, but we get the POV’s of multiple characters that we know and LOVE. You never knew how much you were missing until you get the sides of Harrison Baldwin, John Vandersol, Phillip Roach, and Brent Simmons. Ms. Romig transports us into the minds of these characters and gives us the answers we were so eager to receive. If you think for one minute that you are getting the same story as CONVICTED, just in a different POV, you are severely mistaken. This is a BRAND NEW story! Things that you have wondered about, those little nuances that were hanging out in the back of your mind, the millions and millions of questions that were STILL unanswered…WAIT NO FURTHER! The end is here, and your MIND. WILL. BE. BLOWN.
Let me give you a little taste of each character’s POV…
I’m going to start with one of my all time favorite characters, Phillip Roach. The man that ended up switching loyalties; the man that gained the respect and admiration of one of the most stubborn men in the world; the man who was there for Claire, in the background, watching out for her no matter what.
❝Do you really think I’d put myself through all of this if it weren’t for them?❞
❝That’s why you’re not dead.❞
Next up we have Harrison Baldwin. The man who had a job to do. The man who got a little too close to his target. An agent that couldn’t let some things go. When discoveries are made, the truth that is uncovered will blow his beliefs right out of the water.
❝His mind swirled with answers to questions he didn’t want to ask. Pieces of the puzzle lay blatantly before him, yet he struggled no to connect them. He couldn’t.❞
John Vandersol was in the background for much of the series. He was on Tony’s radar, and when you are on his radar, bad things happen. John loved his sister-in-law, and during his POV you really feel that love come forth. He struggled just as much as everyone else with the events that occurred, but in the end he will always do what is right for his family.
❝John was done being Mr. Nice Guy.❞
Brent Simmons is the kind of man you always want at your back. Tony didn’t deserve a friend like him, and he knew it. The fact that he stuck with Tony after everything he had learned, shows that no matter who the person is, he will find something good in them, something worth fighting for.
❝Tony created rules, and Brent followed them. That was until now.❞
And that brings us to the man of the hour…Anthony Rawlings. You can love him. You can hate him, but he will always be in your mind. He is forever embedded in my heart and soul for sure. I may never come to a final decision on whether or not I could ever forgive Tony for what he put Claire, what he put EVERYONE through. Forgiveness is a powerful thing. Does Tony deserve it? Maybe, maybe not. You alone will have to decide that for yourself. Whatever you decide, you can’t deny the love and devotion that man has for his Claire.
❝You, my dear, are my drug. I’m so damn addicted that I can’t quit you. I know, because I’ve tried – not for me, but for you. I failed miserably. The more I have of you, the more I need. I can never get enough.❞
Past, present, future, you get all that and more in REVEALED, The Missing Years. The characters you loved will turn into characters that you will hate. The characters you thought you hated, will end up growing on you. You think you know what happened behind closed doors? Think again. This book changed everything for me. It opened up possibilities, it revealed the motivations behind the actions, it made me feel such a wide array of emotions, I was beside myself. This was such an exceptional read. The talent that Ms. Romig has, shined so bright during all of these different POVs. In BHE- Convicted you get more than just a novel, you get like FIVE novels in ONE! So if in the end you are still conflicted about your feelings about this man, this enigma that has your mind and heart all in knots, join the club sister! You are not alone. We may never understand Anthony Rawlings, but that is O.K. The fact of the matter is, is that Claire understands him, forgives him, and believes in him. Leave it be. Let them finally have their Happily Ever After.
Superb, incredible, and perfect are just a couple of the words that describe the Consequences Series by Aleatha Romig. Suspenseful, mind blowing, and intense, this series will take you on a ride of your life, an emotional roller coaster, a conflicting thrill ride of secrets, lies, and inexcusable circumstances. This is one of those series that will play out like a movie in your head. It is written so well, so vividly, there is no denying that some part of you will be changed after reading this entire series beginning to end. I will always be a fan of Aleatha Romig. It had to be hard letting go of these characters, as it was for her readers. It may be the end for this series, but the characters will always live on in our hearts. Bravo Ms. Romig. You are an incredible author, and I can’t wait to see what you have in store for us next.
❝Claire was the light to his dark and the right to his wrong.❞
