Review

This is truly a bittersweet moment for the Divas (as I’m sure it is for many who have followed the insane journey of our beloved Tony and Claire) to reach the perfectly ended finish line to the best chess/poker game ever played from the man we wanted to despise but for some ungodly reason couldn’t to the woman who immediately captured our hearts but wanted to strangle some sense into her, Tony and Claire will forever be on the top of our list of favorite couples.image

Aleatha, once again, blew us away with her final installment of the Consequences series! Like I’ve said before, this story stood out among the hundreds of books we read with its originality, unsuspecting twists, amazing writing, and the ability to make us feel so many emotions all at once we didn’t know what to do with ourselves!  This book in particular gave us a beautiful insight into not just Tony but ALL the men we have grown to love and adore! Aleatha Romig, you couldn’t have finished this series off any better than you did and we sincerely thank You for giving us this treasure of a story!  We can’t wait for what comes next from you! Just like every other book in this series, we give Behind His Eyes Convicted: The Missing Years (or whatever you will be calling it:-)) an outstanding 5 champagne glasses!!

Behind His Eyes Truth Excerpt

It isn't real

Glancing at the numerous pictures from his years of surveillance, Tony wondered if he and Claire had come full circle. Would it be like this again? Would his only connection to her be through this new investigator? Would he only see Claire in two dimensions? Tony searched for their contract, the beginning of their personal journey together. He knew it wouldn’t b


Then he shook his head. He didn’t want her back, did he? Hell, the lack of sleep was making him sentimental. He stopped his search. The damn contract was no longer valid; it never had been—legally. Pushing the box back into its hideaway, he contemplated throwing it all away. Having her back wasn’t his goal; learning her location was. She had no right to disappear.
e that easy again. If he were to get her back to Iowa and into his life, it wouldn’t be because of a signature on a napkin.

With the necklace in his hand, Tony settled upon the soft leather sofa in front of his fireplace. If Phillip Roach were correct, in a few moments he’d hear the voice that used to fill his suite and his house. When her voice came through his phone, Tony wanted to feel her presence. He imagined the sound as he looked up at her wedding portrait and saw the emerald green that haunted his dreams. What did he want to hear? He wanted to know she was safe and unharmed. He wanted to know where she was, and he also wanted to bring her back to Iowa—because that was where she belonged. 

It didn’t make sense. To the world she was the woman who tried to kill him. To Tony she was more than that. The past twenty hours had proven it. She was his drug. Claire Nichols ran through his system like ecstasy, sending him on otherwise unobtainable highs. He reasoned that lows followed highs, and she’d given him those, too; they’d given them to each other. Nevertheless, without the right stimulant, the euphoria could never again be achieved. Whether it was elation or misery, neither would be obtainable without the exhilarating potency of Claire. He didn’t want an empty envelope. He wanted her. Nathaniel was wrong: Claire wasn’t gone; she was just misplaced. 

For the last twenty-four hours, his entire being had surged with anticipation. Claire may not understand it—hell, Tony didn’t understand it, but he couldn’t deny it. Now that she was gone, he needed her back in his life, and he would have her.

Review 

We can’t get enough of this series!!! The companion books to Aleatha Romig’s Consequence series are by far the best “extras” we’ve ever had the pleasure of reading and Behind His Eyes Truth might be our favorite so far!  Okay, okay…we say that with every one of her books but this one, we think, might take the cake!  

We all know Tony is a complex man with many sides to him but BHE Truth perfectly highlights the side we all hoped he had and would sporadically show eventually as we were continuously tortured by Tony’s erratic and ruthless behavior and actions throughout  each and every one of the books.  Oh, don’t get us wrong…he is still and will always be deliciously sick and twisted but Aleatha did a phenomenal  job at bringing out his sensitive, protective, and loving side in BHE Truth.  

As always, Aleatha Romig’s writing is smooth and as close to perfection as we could ever ask.  The pages flow beautifully together, creating a story you will not want to put down until you’ve finished.  We must admit, even after we were done, we still had a hard time putting it down…

Just like every other book in this series, Behind His Eyes Truth receives an overwhelming 5 out of 5 champagne glasses from the Divas!  We are a little destroyed at the idea that there is only one more book to come before there will be no more written on one of our most favorite book boyfriends, Anthony Rawlings but we are sure that an author of Aleatha Romig’s caliber will have something else for us to sink our teeth and hearts into soon (or at least we hope!)

BHE divas quotes 3                 TEASER:  

Behind His Eyes- Consequences
The Symphony – Late May 2010
(Consequences—Chapter 8)

“Thank you, Tony,” she replied. “This has been an amazing night. How can I ever thank you?”
He pulled her close, feeling the pressure of her breasts against his chest. Turning off the riding lights, he smiled a devilish grin. “I have a few ideas.”  
Claire’s glance darted toward the dark glass partition separating the back from the front of the car.
Tony laughed. “I promise we’re alone; Eric can’t see or hear us.” He leaned toward her. She instinctively reached for his neck and settled onto the long leather seat. As he hovered mere inches above, he watched her cheeks flush, and his erection came to life. Over the past few months, Claire had learned to respond to Tony’s commands—both verbal and none. There‘d been times when she’d hesitated. It was on those occasions that she earned the punishment she deserved. Turning his tone more serious, he raised a brow and demanded, “Now, show me that you’ve followed my rules. I want to see.” 
Claire’s immediate response fortified the pride of his accomplishment. She maintained their gaze as her small hand fumbled for the hem of her dress. “I can’t reach—”
Tony wouldn’t let her finish—he couldn’t. He needed to taste her. Entwining his fingers in her loose ringlets of hair, he tilted her lips upward and heard a small moan before his mouth seized hers. Unable to soften his approach, he took what was his. It wasn’t enough—he wanted more. When his tongue probed, her lips parted allowing him to enter her warmth. Tony savored her sweetness as her arms once again encircled his neck. With his other hand, he reached for the hem of her dress and the cabin filled with her whimpers of anticipation. 
He slowly lifted the beaded material and teasingly brushed her inner thigh. “Open your legs for me,” he commanded.
She obeyed and he continued to caress her soft skin. When her breathing labored and he neared his destination, Tony stopped. Releasing her hair, he sat up and gazed down at her blushed cheeks, smudged lipstick, and nearly exposed body. Grinning, he murmured, “You were amazing tonight.”
Softly, she replied, “Thank you.”
Leaning back, he reminded her. “But the night isn’t over.” His playful tone vanished. “Now, lift your dress and let me see if you have truly behaved.”
Slowly reaching for the length of material, Claire kept her eyes fixed on his. As the material rose, she replied, “I promise, Tony, I’ve followed your rules.”
He couldn’t help but think how beautiful she looked—offering herself to him. That, combined with the sound of her calling him by his personal name, was enough to release the painful tightness in his slacks. It seemed unreal that he could be on the verge of exploding, and she’d yet to touch him. Surprisingly, at that moment, that wasn’t what he wanted. He yearned for something else, and they both knew his desires came first.

REVIEW

Warning:  Now, as this is a companion book to Aleatha Romig’s Consequence Series, you should not, in any way, read this until you have read the entire series!

Okay, I have just finished this AMAZING companion book and my mind and emotions are everywhere! First off, I haven’t been this excited to read a book since Convicted when it first came out so as I was falling asleep last night at 10pm, one, I was pissed or at least VERY envious that Julia already had access to Tony because she’s in Germany (love you, Jules 😉 ) and two, I was pissed because at 10pm I physically couldn’t stay up any longer for some reason and I didn’t want to wait until morning for my Tony fix.  I can’t tell you how excited I became when my internal alarm clock woke me up at 12:03a, right in time for Tony to be downloaded to my kindle…life once again complete!

We need to give a huge round of applause to Aleatha Romig on her writing style first and foremost!  It is such a pleasure to read a book so well put-together in thought, wording, and editing.  I’m fairly good at looking past sub-par writing and editing to still be able to enjoy a story but with Aleatha Romig, I don’t have to! I get it all with her; great story, great writing, great flow, AWESOME characters!  She delivers to her readers a complete package and she truly deserves to be widely recognized as such!  

Getting into the mind of Anthony Rawlings was SO interesting!  Since the beginning, we all knew what a f**ked up bastard he was but I didn’t realize how unbelievably screwed up he was as well until now.  I mean, the guy really has a whole different and screwed up way of thinking!  He takes control freak to an entirely new level and this book proves it without a doubt!  As I was reading and feeling completely disturbed about the events transpiring, I had to remind myself that I already know what happens…I’ve freaking read the entire series already.  Yet, the story dragged me in so deeply I forgot about that at times and it was as if I was reading the story entirely for the first time.  At the end, I was pleading for Claire not to take the keys and had to laugh at myself  for such an idiotic thought…I mean of course she’s going to take the keys!  Reading Behind His Eyes did make me see Tony differently though and I love that I fully am able to understand how he viewed everything and his thought process in why he made Claire endure the things she did and how he responded to her.  March can’t come soon enough for me as that’s when Behind His Eyes – Truth comes out!   Aleatha Romig, you did an extraordinary job once again and you, without a doubt, get the biggest 5 champagne glasses we can find for this amazing book!
