The Consequence of Rejection by Rachel Van Dyken
Series: The Consequence Series, Book #4
Release Date: March 26, 2018
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 run 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.
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 girl’s 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.
My Review of The Consequence of Rejection by Rachel Van Dyken
What do we really know about Jason? We know he’s a walking time-bomb of bad luck, he has crazy friends, and he’s an officer of the law. But, do we know why the universe is out to get him? In The Consequence of Rejection, we get the how, the when, and the whys of nature’s hate for Jason.
If you’ve read the first two books, you know how funny the cast of characters is and you’ll be happy to know that the gang’s all back, including Max, Reid, Milo, Colt, and Grandma. We’re introduced to Maddy, who plays an integral part in this story and whom I came to adore.
Rachel Van Dyken brings back her signature humor and stellar story-telling ability in her newest romantic comedy. While you may need the tissues in a scene or two, she keeps with the first two books in the series with the laughs. Each chapter starts with quotes from Max’s best seller and only gets better from there.
Jason has always been an enigma to me and I’ve needed his story since The Consequence of Loving Colton (funny book, by the way). The author captures the heart of the characters, especially Maddy and Jason, and tells their story with feeling.
This book is heartfelt and was a joy to read. I am so glad that Jason finally gets his happily ever after, even if he did have Max’s help to get there.
