The very first chapter of Convicted will start you on a rollercoaster ride that will leave you gasping, ohhh-no-ing and wondering what the fuck is going on!! I mean it my jaw was on the floor! Everything I though I was sure of was turned upside down leaving me wondering how on earth things could ever be fixed and trying to figure out how things could have possibly gotten to that point! One of the things I love most about this whole series is how completely unpredictable each scene What a story!! I mean it — my jaw was on the floor!

All opinions expressed are my own. I receive no compensation for reviews. An epic conclusion to an incredible series that did not disappoint. Synopsis There were still lessons to learn and consequences for the truth! Over time, the role of teacher changed—games became reality—and domination turned to desire. Despite an insurmountable history, Claire and Tony found their way back to one another.
Just when they seemed to have it all—love, respect, and the promise of a family—the game master exposed the truth. Unwilling to allow her child to suffer the consequences of an old vendetta, Claire fled… At one time, Claire was held captive in an opulent mansion—then her incarceration was a cell inside a state penitentiary.
Was her new prison—a tropical island—truly less lonely? Who will save Claire from her oldest nightmare and her newest reality? Will it be Tony? Can he forgive her for leaving him—again? Will he utilize previously unknown connections to save the woman who infiltrates his thoughts? Maybe Phil? Will his devotion in keeping Claire and her child safe be rewarded?
As the cards are played—sins of the past, innocent victims, and truths are revealed. With compartmentalization no longer an option, is the reality too much? Could there be an even worse isolation? With the game master dealing from a stacked deck, can this new high-stakes game possibly be won? When faced with the same odds as Tony and Claire, many players would have folded and walked away. It was too early to declare the winner. They both knew there were more cards to be revealed.
Did I mention nail-biting anxiety?! The story crept through me, gripping me, holding me captive at the precarious edge of sanity. I felt seriously obsessed and consumed with trying to discern the whole game, seeing how each opponent played, anticipating the next surreptitious move. This clever, duplicitous cast of characters all had a story to tell, a plan in mind, a past that fueled their motivation. This story — this game — was one that shifted constantly beneath me.
The entire book is a story told in parts, through various eyes and at different time periods. I thought the structure and format of the book was ingenious… it was a way to keep us in suspense, never seeing too much of the game at once. Shook me to the core. I kept wondering WHAT?! Did I miss something?! Add in some expletives and that was pretty much the way it went, folks.
The end game was not indeed clear at all. Harry, Meredith, Claire, Tony, Phil, Emily, Catherine and so many others were pawns of their past, gambits carefully orchestrated as a result of their own personal convictions.
Whether the ultimate prize was love, a happily ever after, a solved case, money or power, everything was connected. While Consequences and Truth packed a lot of emotional intensity throughout, I felt the first half of the book was filled with intensity of a different kind. It was about investigation and observation, trying to put all the pieces together. Admittedly I missed a little of that emotion-fueled angst, but I was captivated nonetheless. No more mistakes. No more trusting the wrong people.
To me, she has always been such an interesting character… a mix of vulnerability, naivety and staunch determination. Over time, and as a result of so many consequences, her resolve steeled and her confidence grew. Phil who is one of my favorite characters in the book , pushed her to listen to her gut and follow her instincts. After years of submission, it was a whole new way to live.
It was almost like a character all its own, it was that significant in my eyes. Claire needed to find herself, find her confidence and find the control she desperately yearned for in order to survive, while at the same time, simultaneously find the wisdom to know when to wield it and when to relinquish it to someone else.
For Tony, control was a part of his DNA, but in order to show Claire he had truly changed, that they were partners, he had to share control and share decision making.
I loved that Tony evolved and transformed into a man that was ultimately not defined by his past transgressions, but even more so that he remained true to the person he was.
He was a man made better, a man who learned to feel, a man who let love in, but a man that was undeniably Tony through and through, even at the end. Tony is a man who despite relinquishing control, struggled in that surrender, as we would expect him to. Despite what you think of Tony from past books, you will admire the depth of his love and determination to make things right with Claire, with their situation and even with his past.
I was absolutely, irrevocably convinced that the love he felt for her was true and right. No questions. Would it change her feelings for Tony? Could she handle it? Could she survive it? Would learning the truth have irreversible consequences? Allowing light to penetrate that darkness makes everything clear… In the darkness, all you can do is listen to the wind and the waves. You ask yourself, are there creatures, boats, or untold dangers lurking?
Claire keeps these really intimate journals, her compartmentalized thoughts freed on paper, which not only evoked so much emotion, but which also helped shed understanding on the journey she took from prisoner to lover to soul mate. Claire and Tony are two twisted souls, as is Catherine as well, that are held captive by their past, downtrodden by their guilt and uncertain of their ability and worthiness to find redemption and happiness.
Their relationship certainly started in the depths of darkness, and it may not be considered normal… but they are right for each other. What can you expect out of this book?
No release date yet. It had been that way since before she even knew him — or knew of him. She could fight that revelation, but why?
