Review: The Consequence of Rejection by Rachel Van Dyken

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. 

Review:  4 of 5 Stars

The Consequence Series by Rachel Van Dyken has been an interesting ride. The characters in each book are unique in their own way.  I loved Milo and Colt's story in the first book and have read all the books in the series.  

Jason is Milo's brother and Colt's best friend.  He has honestly had the worst luck in this entire series. He seems to have a black cloud that follows him around and if something bad is going to happen, it will happen to him.  

Maddy Summers is Jason's high school sweetheart that walked out the door on him the day after he asked her to marry him.  He never knew why or what happened but when she shows up back in town after 10 years, you can bet it is going to get interesting really fast.  

Throughout all of these books, there is a lot of comedy and while I enjoy it, at times it is a bit over the top for me.  I love Max's character, but sometimes he exhausts me and I am just reading about his plots, plans and antics.  As always, if you love Rom-Com and hilarity and chaos, this book is the ticket.  I am super happy with how it all worked out for Jason and I really enjoyed the journey to get there.
