The Consequence Of Rejection by Rachel Van Dyken Review



You know the universe is trying to tell you something when you get struck by lightning, but only after getting hit on by the elderly, almost getting ran over by a semi, and running into the one who got away.
Why do they say it like that anyway?
Like I accidentally lost her when she was the one that got in the car with my best friend and left me.
The day after I proposed.
We were eighteen.
I wanted forever.
She didn’t.
It’s been ten years.
I tried to move on, tried to get married, had that same wedding crashed by my now best friend who says the only way for me to stop pissing off the universe, is to gain closure with the one woman I can’t forget.
So I do it.
I embark on a journey down memory lane that not only lands me in prison but on the receiving end of a fist fight in front of the entire town, this naturally happens after drunken pool sex, climbing the same girls window, and getting threatened at gunpoint by her father.
To say the universe is trying to tell me something anything, is a giant understatement.
I just hope I survive the message.
And then, I hope I survive her–again.


Yet another cute and fun book in the Consequence series by Rachel Van Dyken. This is a series I go to when I want something light and fun. Rachel’s writing is always clean but full of spunk. Jason and Maddy’s story had a good little bit of drama that I enjoyed. This second chance romance feels like it is rooted in the type of real-life decision an eighteen-year-old cold make instead of them being dragged apart by some outside force. I liked that it felt based on reality.

‘Everything was the same. And yet. Everything had changed.’

If you are a big fan of the over the top humor that Max has brought to the series then you will be delighted this book is much like the rest of the series full of his hilarity and antics. Overall this was a quick easy read heavy on the humor, romance and even a good bit of heat. Grab it today for a fun spring read.
