Review: The Consequence of Rejection by Rachel Van Dyken

The Consequence of Rejection (Consequence, #4)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.



Claire's Review 5 of 5 Stars


This is the fourth book in the Consequences series and is Jason's story. This installment see's the return of Jasons, first love Maddy, who Jason had plans to marry and see his forever with; however, Maddy was scared of being stuck in a small town and afraid that she would end up resenting Jason, so she up and left a day after Jason proposed to her....throw in the rest of the characters and you find yourself with a well written, funny and amazing story.

I have read quite a few of Rachel's books now and I think it is fair to say that she is now one of my 'go to' authors and she never puts a foot wrong with these stories. These characters are so well written, that you can actually imagine yourself being friends with them and being in the pages of the book, and I find if I can really feel so pulled into a book then I enjoy it more.

I cannot recommend this book, as well as all of Rachel's work enough. As usual, this is a must-read.
