Consequences

From  Dawn Moore
Title:  Consequences
Author:  Aleathea Romig
This romantic/erotic Thriller walks along the line ala 50 Shades. A woman (Claire) is kidnapped and then mentally/physically tormented by a handsome man then.. falls in love with him? That woman worked on my last nerve. I honestly wanted to drop a gun into the pages of the book. WARNING: You will find yourself screaming at the pages of this book in public places because you are so infuriated. Maybe it’s me but I was relieved with the ending it was funky and you don\’t see it coming. (Unless you were yelling and dropping guns in the pages).  I can’t say I was happy with this book overall but nothing has gotten my angst up like that quite some time. Heck I am still pissed writing about it. #bookhangover. Maybe when I am finished being mad I’ll read part two.

two men are the active characters in this book,  father and son.  the father is in the hospital dying and tells his son, Michael to read a journal that the father had written  about his past life and not to judge him.  the father was german and became a bookkeeper of items stolen from the jews in Germany.  he was a lieutenant in the german army during world war 2. his job was called bookkeeping and he kept the records of all the things taken from the jews before they were murdered.  somehow he took a deceased jewish man,s identity with the idea when the time came he would get asylum when he told his captors that he was not a jew.  he was shipped to Israel where he was indoctrinated as a member of the survivors.  he even marked his arm with a number from the concentration camp he worked at.  he became a lieutenant in the palmach and was sent on missions where he eventually was shot and was recuperating in an arab hospital.  in the meantime he became infatuated with another isreali soldier, a woman.  they make a baby who dies when an explosive is detonated…mother and child dies.  the journal tells his son Michael about the father’s past.  it is unbelievable to “mikey” as his father called him.  he is torn between loving his father an admitted german per his journals and the upbringing of being jewish.  the book is sad because what happens to the relationship and the distorted history.  it was upsetting and yet engrossing.
