Behind His Eyes Consequences by Aleatha Romig

Click here for amazon
***WARNING-This is a long review & GIVEAWAY at the end.*** 
5 stars!

Well I'll be damned! What a total mindf*ck! Yes, I'm sorry, that was necessary! It is becoming increasingly popular to read the same book from the male perspective. I have read most of these if I love the original book. It is good. I'm happy I do but they do not evoke the same emotions the second time around. The WOW factor is dimmed a bit. I don't mean that in a bad way of course. We already know what happens but we are getting a different perspective. I think that is what I expected when I started this book. BOY WAS I WRONG! (yes, shouty capitals were necessary)

I read this book slowly. I wanted to devour each word. Or maybe I did not want to relive some of the "glitches." We really get to know Tony. He is so frustrating at times! Normally when I write reviews I do it after I finish the book. I might make a few notes here and there. For this one I had a notebook by my side and scribbled my thoughts-4 pages worth! Normally I have nice handwriting. These notes look like chicken scratch! At one point I got so stressed I had to stop and organize my desk at work! 

Above: sloppy notes
Below: Clean desk 
Even though you know what is going to happen it does not change your reaction. A part of me did not want to keep reading- I didn't want to relive any other glitches! Even through the good times you are constantly on edge. Waiting...worrying... The rules really hit home. It doesn't matter if you didn't do anything wrong, if it looks wrong he will be mad-and there will be Consequences. What you never see coming is how deep Tony's vendetta runs! Or the depths of his inability to trust. LITERALLY, you will be SHOCKED! 

What you can expect from Behind His Eyes Consequences:

  • not a retelling of Consequences
  • renewed anger for Tony
  • increased hatred for Catherine
  • Saying, "OMG, Tony is effin crazy!" many times
Other thoughts:

I love The Great Gatsby. One thing that stuck out with me from that book was the concept of wanting too much. Gatsby wanted Daisy to deny that she ever loved Tom. He wanted to control her heart and her past. He wanted too much. Tony wanted too much. He never felt completely satisfied. He felt the need to test Claire to the breaking point-WELL beyond the breaking point. 

Another thing that stuck out with me was the idea of temptation. How much temptation can one person resist? Is it really fair to continuously tempt someone and be shocked with they finally give in to that temptation?
