+While this book is not reliant upon reading the others in the Consequences Series, I think it is appreciated more having read the others. If one has the background of the relationship of Claire and Tony, you understand more the characters and reasonings for decisions in RIPPLES.
I urge you to read the publisher's summary, on each book, for more details, as I'm afraid adding to it may it inadvertently reveal spoilers.
This is NOT the psychological thriller that the original CONSEQUENCES is. This is a full out dominant/submissive tale. I do not care for books with this premise – especially... grrrrrr, I cannot think of a way to communicate what bothers me without spoiling.
I was happy that Althea Romig lengthened the series – to the next generation, even though this particular installment was not for me. I do hope that Audible publishes/records further books.
This book was narrated by Eric Rolon and Kylie Stewart. I found both to be great voice performers.
Story: 3 stars
Performance: 4 stars
Overall: 3.5 stars
Credit worthy? Yes, if you are a fan of the Consequences Series.
Notations: some strong language, violence and sexual situations

I am a dedicated Aleatha Romig fan. I went to see when I first read her and low and behold, 3 years ago on November 6, 2013, I purchased Consequences. I have since read every book she has ever published.
The Consequences series is high on my list of favorites. Dark and twisted has never been my normal read, but when Aleatha Romig writes it, I read it and love it up. You can read this book as a standalone, but you are so missing out on the amazingness of Tony and Claire and their unique story.
This book had the darkness I love, the twists and turns too. Natalie and Dexter have a relationship that will mirror her parent's lives. Some serious Stockholm syndrome going on here and Natalie falls, hook, line and sinker.
"Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it."
Nat, aka Bug, should have listened to those words the moment Dexter spoke them.
The story as a whole was interesting and kept me listening and reading. My only concern was that it went too easy for me, to see Natalie acquiesce so easily was just too hard to swallow at times.
The ending seemed incomplete, I want more. I want to see the dynamic between Tony and Dexter and Natalie's entire family. So I will hold out some hope that maybe, just maybe Aleatha Romig has another novella, short story or full-length book about this family ruminating in her brain as we speak!
The audible - I enjoyed the narrators, the male narrator, Eric Ronlin was on point on for me for the male voices. His "evil laugh" is so perfect that it could be a sound bite for me. (Insert evil laugh). I found that his performance was believable and well rehearsed.
Kylie Steward, the female narrator felt as though she was just reading the book to me at times. Not making me feel what Natalie was feeling but telling me how Natalie was feeling. Overall, the book and audible were enjoyable and kept my interest. Just wanted a little more from both the story and the narrator at times.
