Title: The Consequence Of Rejection (Consequence #4)
Author: Rachel Van Dyken
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication 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 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.
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.
If you’ve been reading my reviews for a while now, you’ll know that I Love Rachel Van Dyken’s books… She’s my one-click/ don’t question it buy.
The consequences of rejection was sadly not my favorite.
Don’t get me wrong, I will continue to read RVD’s books but I didn’t feel this book as much as I’d normal would havr for her other books. The Consequences of Rejection is a second chance romance but sadly for me, it lacked the emotions for the readers aka me, to feel connected to the characters. I just felt that Maddy’s reason for leaving was stupid and the whole shebang could have been more understandable if she has just talked with Jason.
So, simply put, the reason for her leaving was pretty anti-climactic.
The star of the book was Max! Talk about secondary characters stealing the spotlight!
Having said that, this book is filled with love and humour and you can’t for one second doubt that Jason Caro is TRULY DEEPLY in love with Maddy. His love for her even after all these years is beautiful and endearing.
Anyway, this book hasn’t scarred me from ever reaching for another RVD book. I still love her and her books!
