EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT from Behind His Eyes Convicted: THE MISSING YEARS by Aleatha Romig

I keep hitting the refresh button on my Kindle waiting for my advanced copy of Behind His Eyes Convicted: THE MISSING YEARS to pop up.  I plan on going into lock down/reading mode (for as long as my kids will allow me to ) and devour the final book in the Convicted series.  Aleatha was super kind and gave Kindle Crack Book Reviews fans an exclusive excerpt which you can read below.  Enjoy.  



Synopsis:
THE MISSING YEARS is the final piece to Aleatha Romig’s CONSEQUENCES SERIES puzzle. Follow the twists and turns as secrets are revealed, consequences are delivered, and the future is shown. 

In CONVICTED we saw what happened that fateful afternoon at the Rawlings Estate. Now experience the shocking repercussions firsthand. More than a companion, this full-length novel fills in the gap of time that was only mentioned, beginning when Claire Nichols forgets and seen through the eyes of 
collective men (the HIS is plural). 

In THE MISSING YEARS, readers will see Anthony Rawlings fight for what belongs to him and cope with the reality of his past. Watch as Harrison Baldwin discovers the truth that threatens his beliefs, and as 

John Vandersol comes to terms with his revelations. Witness Phillip Roach, as he decides with whom his loyalties lay, and Brent Simmons, as he demonstrates the meaning of friendship—no matter the cost. 

As the pieces of the puzzle fall into place, BEHIND HIS EYES CONVICTED goes beyond. This final installment of the series offers a glimpse into the future of the lives that will forever be changed 
because there was a man who...

Once upon a time, signed a napkin that he knew was a contract. As an esteemed businessman, he forgot one very important rule—he forgot to read the fine print. It wasn’t an acquisition to own another person as he’d previously assumed. It was an agreement to acquire a soul.

BEHIND HIS EYES CONVICTED also contains a complete glossary of characters and a timeline that covers the entire series. If you have read New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig’s CONSEQUENCES, 

TRUTH, and CONVICTED, you must learn the rest of the story: BEHIND HIS EYES CONVICTED: THE MISSING YEARS!



Exclusive Excerpt from Aleatha Romig’s exciting conclusion to the Consequences Series, Behind His
Eyes Convicted: THE MISSING YEARS: 

Tony

You never find yourself until you face the truth. 

—Pearl Bailey

Judge Temple interjected, “Let me get this straight: it’s believed that Mrs. Rawlings’ current mental state 

was caused by previous injury or possibly a very stressful situation?”

“Yes,” Jane replied.

“Are both options viable?”

“Yes,” she said again.

Turning toward Tony, the judge asked, “Mr. Rawlings, in the best interest of your family, though you are 

not under oath, I’m expecting a truthful answer. Do you know how Mrs. Rawlings received the initial and most 

severe injury to her brain that is evident on the medical scans?”

“Judge, my client does not need to answer that question,” Brent interjected.

“Counselor, I need the facts to make my decision. Mr. Rawlings, I’m waiting.”

The rush of blood to his face made Tony feel faint. Maintaining the eye contact he’d demanded of Claire 

in the past, Tony gazed only at the judge. “Yes, I do.”

“There is a sensationalized bestselling book on the market right now that claims to have been narrated by 

your wife. Are you aware of this book?”

“Yes, I am.”

“Have you read the book?”

Tony stoically replied, “No, I have not.”

“Were you aware that you’re mentioned in this book?”

“Judge, where is this going?” Brent asked.

“Counselor, I want to hear your client’s answer. Mr. Rawlings, were you the cause of that brain injury? 

Did you harm your wife?”

Tony turned toward John and Emily. “I’m not proud of the things I’ve done in the past, and I would never 

do them again. I would do anything to have never behaved as I did. You need to know that this time things were 

different.”

“Mr. Rawlings...” Judge Temple’s voice deepened, “...while we’re not in a courtroom, I will still hold you 

in contempt if you avoid another of my direct questions. Did you cause your wife grievous bodily harm in 2010?”

“Tony, don’t answer this,” Brent urged.

“Grievous?” Tony asked.

“Did you wound her with intent?”

“I didn’t intend to harm her. It just...”

Tony’s words faded, tears descended Emily’s cheeks, as the small room buzzed with silence. 

“Mr. Rawlings,” Judge Temple continued, “are the things in Ms. Banks’ book based on fact?”

“I haven’t read her book.”

“How did Mrs. Rawlings first come to live at your house, in 2010?”

Tony looked toward Brent and then remembering the judge’s statement about contempt, he replied, “I’d 

rather not answer that question.”

“Oh my God,” Emily breathed under her breath, “you’re a monster.”
