Review of Consequences of Deception by Ella Fox

Title: Consequences of Deception
Author: Ella Fox
Genre: Erotic Romance
Length: 174 pages
Release Date: February 15, 2014

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. Prepare to discover the Consequences of Deception.

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.”

Deception is everywhere. Who to believe? Are all the secrets out in the open?

This was a wonderfully written book with memorable characters. I enjoyed how our author Ella Fox set up the foundation for the rest of the book in the Prologue. It was shocking when reading the first chapter that so much had gone wrong in the four and a half years between the Prologue and the start of this story. The two would-be-lovers were at polar opposites. Immediately you are driven to wonder what could possibly have happened to alter their feelings so dramatically.

Sloanne is really a character to be loved and protected. Throughout the story, her character comes through as young, full of hope despite losing everything she loves, and most definitely in need of protection. She has loved Killian for so long and so deeply, I could not believe her when she was trying to say she hated him. I thought she was just reacting to the way he was treating her.

At first, I can honestly say I hated Killian. After all that Sloanne has been through, his manipulation and treatment of her, made me want to save her from him. Somehow, though, I could tell there was more to his attitude than met the eye. I also kept hoping that whatever was the cause for the rift between them would be resolved. How could he not love her anymore?

This book is an exciting ride to the end.
