's review

it was amazing

Not enough stars but if I must- 5 Stars (it seems like an injustice to only say 5) *completely spoiler free*

There is absolutely NO way to do a proper review of one of the greatest series ending I have ever had the chance to read. To discuss the characters would be to divulge information that one must experience on this incredible, tumultuous, rollercoaster of a ride. The twists and turns are ever present and the emotions are staggering, gut wrenching, almost debilitating at times. In Convicted- Tony, Claire, Catherine, Phil, Harry, Sophia, Emily, Meredith, Brent, Amber, Eric, Derek, Courtney, John.....are all at the poker table and it's time to play. Who will deal, who will fold, who will hold 'em, and who will walk away.

I will say that I was anxious, nervous, hopeful, saddened, surprised, troubled, overwhelmed, delighted, nauseous, heartbroken, sickened, relieved, and most importantly CONSUMED by this book, this series. I love a book that takes me on a journey of a lifetime and Aleatha Romig did just that. I messaged her after Consequences because I was so upset. She was kind enough to talk me off the ledge and after that, I began Truth and was amazed. What I found so phenomenal was that she was able to turn my feelings around. Did I think that was possible- no freaking way- but she did and it was spectacular. The growth that Tony and Claire go through is quite remarkable and truly magnificent, emotional and One in a Million.

I can't write about the book because it would be a spoiler. What I can say, without a doubt, is that Convicted is one of the best series ending book that I have ever read. It ripped me, gutted me, made me cry, made me sick, and eventually let me breathe. It was One of the Best Journeys I have ever had the pleasure to go on.

Thank you for-
Failure in not an Option.
Don't disappoint me- there will be Consequences
Tony's Eye's, His Baritone Voice and His Devilish Grin
Claire's Compartments
Claire's Strength, Her Smart Mouth, Her Convictions
Their Union of Love.....The Rawlings Baby
and Most of All....
Those fabulous, inspiring, insightful quotes at the beginning of each chapter. One of my all time favorite things about you Aleatha Romig.

BR was suppose to be with Barb, Jxxx, Mo, Shannon, and Courtney but Barb and I got the book the night before and we couldn't wait so we dove in and helped each other stay sane. Sorry ladies that we were selfish. So Barb- thanks for holding my hand, hearing me rant and rave and crying with me. xoxo-

Why try to make a cast when this one seems perfect..

Quotes Deanna❤Pink Lady❤️ Liked

Aleatha Romig
“No matterwhat he did to make Claire’s life better or show her he’d changed, these memories would always linger in the recesses of his mind. For the rest of his life, he’d know what he’d done. Tony hated himself for all of it—hell, he always had the end justifies the means argument, but even he didn’t believe that anymore. Not now. Not now that he knew Claire and loved Claire.”
Aleatha Romig, Convicted

Aleatha Romig
“Lifting his head to gently kiss her lips, he whispered, “I trust you.” Then he covered his own eyes with her satin mask.”
Aleatha Romig, Convicted

Aleatha Romig
“I don’t doubt you can handle it; you’ve
handled so much. You’ve always been so strong. It’s what—”
“I know—it’s what infuriated you about me.”
He squeezed her hand. “Yes—and it’s
what made me fall in love with you.”
Aleatha Romig, Convicted

Aleatha Romig
“Their journey wasn’t complete. If their
relationship had been a poker tournament, unquestionably, they’d not been dealt the best cards. When faced with the same odds, as Tony and Claire, many players would have folded and walked away. They hadn’t—they’d continued to play. In the process they’d grown and changed. At one time, they were opponents, strategizing against one another, now they were teammates, yet their tournament wasn’t over. It was too early to declare the winner. They both knew there were more cards to be revealed.”
Aleatha Romig, Convicted

Jen Super review! Thanks for keeping it spoiler free! I am trying very hard not to spoil it for me as I am just at the beginning!! It is nice that people like you respect that others aren't finished!!! I will say this...I am totally confused at this juncture!! This book is making me think that I"M crazy! LOL

Awe Melissa.....thanks a lot ♥


Love2Read I'm 66% done with the first book and I just keeping hoping it gets better. I only read the first paragraph of this review as to not spoil future reading. If I am able to continue the series. However, please tell me it gets better! All I am getting out of this is that Tony controls Claire. Period, the end. At first he forces her to be with him while he controls her entire life. Then they fall in love while he still controls her entire life. Now they are living 'happily ever after' while he continues to control her life. Am I missing something???


Jamie AMAZING review Deanna! I started this one yesterday but paused it and will read it this weekend. I need to be able to sit down and read it straight through with a couple of margarita's in hand. So my Saturday is all planned out! Hubby out of town so it will be just ME and TONY

The first book is hard and it's gonna get harder so prepare yourself. Keep going and I promise that it's a series that you will love. I will tell you that I hated Tony in book 1 and I continued with Truth and WOW, it blew me away how things and people change. Hang tight girl and keep going, in the end you'll be happy you did!! :-))
