How far would you go for vengeance or your own brand of justice when a monster killed your sister? How far would you go for the woman you loved? What if your actions would devastate her? What if your actions would also bring down a monster who will continue to torture and kill? What if you WERE the law, but would willingly break it?

Detective Tate Powell is a man on a mission. How could he have known the man who killed his sister was Abby’s brother, a twisted man without a conscience? What he did

Dark Consequences is a darker story than what I have come to expect from Author Amanda Siegrist but I liked it! Detective Tate Powell was on the trail of a killer and had never expected that it would lead to the one woman who could capture his heart, especially with his heart being so enraged over the death of his sister. This story starts after Tate and Abby had made a connection but their beginning is told throughout the reading of this book.

Abby’s character was torn between protecting her bro

I love a story that grips me early and Dark Consequences by Amanda Siegrist does just that.

Abby was a secretary for a criminal defense attorney in Minnesota, but she knew how to take care of herself. She had moved there with her best friend, Brandon. She was happy with her life, but there was one thing missing, her brother, Cooper. He was a psychopath who murdered people without compunction.

A cop in love with a woman who’s brother killed his sister. NOW…he was going to hunt him down and exact hi

Tate, a detective, has two things on his mind and heart. The first is hunting down the man that killed his sister. Second is the woman that stole his heart with a glance. What Tate didn't expect was for the them to be connected. When he learns Abby's brother and his sister's killer are the same man, he struggles with what to do...either option will break his heart, Abby's too.

Abby lost her heart to Tate so quickly she didn't even realize he had it until he held the power to destroy her. Abby had

Detective Tate Powell is a man on a mission, and that mission is to kill the man responsible for killing his sister. Now, as law enforcement, we know that he's really not supposed to be on that whole revenge quest, so you see the problem with that right? Wait for it, because it gets better. The man who killed his sister is his girlfriend's, the woman he loves so very much, the woman who is his person, brother. Yeah, they have an expiration date obviously, especially since Abby can't believe her ...more

Is there ever a time when it’s okay to kill? That’s the question that is thrown around in the background of your mind when reading this story. Whether it’s for revenge, to defend yourself, out of instant anger or whatever...can you excuse taking another human life? And what of the consequences? This book is quite thought-provoking as well as an entertaining story.

The lead characters are both likeable even though Detective Tate Powell is a brash, I’ll do it my way and you can take it or leave it,

Not what I was expecting at all. Full of emotion, mystery, lies, suspense, murder, and romance with some hot steamy scenes all rolled into one. Amanda has pulled it out of the bag with this one. This is my favourite Siegrist read to date, and I cannot wait for book 2 in the series.

The story flowed well and the pace was good. The 3 main characters, Tate, Abby, and Cooper, were great characters to get to know. The story was told from each of their perpective, which I loved. Not the typical hero/h

Amanda Siegrist blows me away every time I read her stories. Whether they are the flash fictions to the Novels I adore. When I need a change of book genre, she is a great author to seek out. Dark Consequences pushed me out of my book funk. You will not get the same ol' boy meets girl, boy sleeps with girl, boy breaks the girl's heart, then we have a HEA...Nope you get the deep and gritty! Don't worry there was heavy chemistry between Tate and Abby! The bounds of right or wrong are pushed to the ...more

Detective Tate Powell is a strong character who is very set in his ways but is basically a very moral person so for him to decide to kill his sister’s murderer is huge. Abby Forrester is a much more shy person around a lot of people but has a solid backbone too. For her, knowing that her brother is a killer is devastating, as it would be for anyone. However having your boyfriend wanting to kill him? That’s even harder. It causes all sorts of repercussions and yes consequences- such an appropriat ...more

Tate and Abby both come from rough pasts, but have worked hard to get past that and have a better life. Abby’s brother murdered Tate’s half-sister, and the beginning of the story starts with Tate going after him. The book is essentially a game of cat and mouse, but added in a romantic aspect into all the suspense. There were some twists that I did not see coming, especially towards the end! I was really torn on this book – I felt like I started it in the middle of the storyline and had no idea w ...more

Hot damn this has got to be my absolute favorite from this author. The book starts off telling you who the killer is and how he fits in this triangle. It is fierce in how it grabs you, knocks you for a loop and keeps you spinning throughout the read. The suspense isn't in who the killer is it's in why and who he kills!! It's off the chain. There is so much going on and yeah you have murder, siblings, a past and a present, a connection on too many side and not one but two detectives with an attit ...more

Detective Tate Powell is seaching for the man who killed his half sister. The same man who is his girlfriend's brother. Abby is torn between her brother and her boyfriend. Tate is a my way or the highway type of guy.

Abby and Tate have a strong love for one another no matter what obstacles are thrown in their path. They balance one another.

When Tate travels to New York on a murder case he meets Detective Stromberg. A twin as far as attitudes. Can't wait for his story.

Dark Consequences is an inten

Amazing romantic suspense story! Fast paced, and phenomenal story line. I love how the characters weren't "perfect" they had agendas and didn't care what they had to do or the "consequences" of achieving them. I also loved how the story ended, the whole time reading you're wondering where the story will go, how can there possibly be a good outcome. Rest assured though, there is indeed a happily ever after.

This book had me screaming a couple of times. The book veered off in a direction I did not see coming. I love it when that happens! It was neat seeing a story that started off as flash fiction with prompts from her reading group turn into such a captivating book. The feelings raging through this book felt so palpable. It takes great writing to achieve these things. I look forward to reading the next book in the series!

Despite only knowing each other a few short months, Abby and Tate have fallen in love. But will that love be enough for Tate to stop his vengeance to kill his sister’s murder, Abby’s brother?

Amanda has done it again with a great plot & storyline! Both Tate & Abby are torn in figuring out what to do. The decisions they make will have consequences. Will their love survive the aftermath?

Detective Tate Powell meets Abby Forrester while investigating a series of murders, one of which is his sister. When Abby discovers who the killer is and tells the detective, Tate makes it his mission to take the killer out, even though it may cost him his relationship with Abby.

I have read other books of Amanda Siegrist but this one was a little different...a little darker than what she writes. But I loved it since I’m a dark romance fan! I loved the plot and it will have you on the edge of your seat wondering what is going to happen. I highly recommend this book.

I’m a USA Today Bestselling Author that loves to write sweet contemporary romance and romantic suspense novels, although I am partial to romantic suspense. Honestly, I love anything that has to do with romance. As long as there's a happy ending, I'm a happy camper. And insta-love…yes, please! I love baseball (Go Twins!) and creating awesome crafts.
