Once upon a time, girl met boy and a love story began.Their future was assured until tragedy struck and deceptions were made. There are consequences to every action, and the Consequences of Deception are always the most punishing. Sloane Evans lost nearly everyone that she’s ever loved, but losing Killian Brandt left a scar that never healed. Four and a half years after turning his back on her, Killian steps back into Sloane’s life in the most shocking of ways, giving her no choice but to abandon her life and go with him. Why would a man buy a woman that he hates? Not everything is as it appears. Love is beautiful, revenge is ugly, and lies destroy lives.
A horrifying suspicion takes root in my head and a wave of dizziness sweeps through me as I realize that there is only one possible reason that he is here. The only explanation that makes sense is that he wants to be the one to throw me out into the street. Somehow he’s in control of Stephen and Celine’s house, and I just bet he’d done whatever he had to do to get himself into this position. Four and half years he’d been waiting for a shot at me, and now he has it. “You’re… throwing me out?” I try, damn hard, to keep from breaking down. The tears I keep at bay, but there is a definite warbling of my voice as I ask the question. Immediately I am angry with myself for showing such weakness and I decide to take the bull by the horns. I am not about to give Killian Brandt, of all people, the pleasure of seeing me break, even though I have to admit to myself that I am definitely breaking. I plow on before he can answer my ridiculous question. “What am I saying? Of course you’re throwing me out! I’m sure this has to be one of the best moments of your miserable life, you selfish son-of-a-bitch. You want me out? Consider me gone!” I jump to my feet to go call Demi, only to come to a dead halt when Killian thunders out a command.
“Sit your ass down,now.”
I am so shocked by the force behind his words that I immediately drop back onto the couch. I don’t actually fear Killian, but my response to his tone of voice is instantaneous. For one moment, I allow myself to hope that maybe Killian isn’t here to ruin my life. Maybe, just maybe, he isn’t as bad as I think he was.
“I’m not kicking you out, Sloane. I’m buying you.”
Whatever I thought before? It was all too generous. Killian just turned my life upside down with nine life-changing words. It hangs out there between us as I gape at him while I try to formulate a response.
“Buying me…? This proves that you’re insane! I’m not a commodity. What exactly can I do for you, Killian? Be your maid?”
The look he gives me is a lot like a warning and instinctively I know that whatever he says next isn’t going to be good.
“No, you’re going to be my lover.”
My thoughts are all over the place with this one. I loved the beginning of this story and I loved the end. The middle was hard for me. I ached so much for the heroine. I wanted her to find her backbone. Even when we got the whole truth.....things were just too easily forgiven for me (a little rushed), even with trying to make it up, I just couldn't completely let it go. That aside, dang can Ella bring the sexy and the writing was good! I’m pretty sure I panted through most of this book. Even when I was mad at Killian, his dirty mouth could make a girls panties combust! 3.5 stars.
"There are always choices. You made yours a long time ago. It's time for you to feel the consequences."
Sloan and Killian's relationship is torn apart by tragedy. Several years later they are forced back together and the truth is discovered....so much hurt and pain could have been avoided. What they thought to be the truth is not.... their whole relationship down the drain because of lies, deceit, and mistrust. Can Sloan and Killian rebuild what they had or will they have to face the consequences of their actions?
"There's been so much ugly between us," I blubber. "I just want us to have a new beginning without misunderstandings, lies, and secrets."
Consequences of Deception was a very angsty, sexy, and intriguing read. The fact that I wanted to punch the hero and molest him at the same time means that Ella did her job and kept me entertained, this is my first book of hers and I will definitely read one again.
