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.

How can there be already be two and one star ratings, when this book doesn't even has a release date yet? Heck, I don't get some people!

I just know that I want this really, really bad. These books are too hilarious. Can't wait.

Thoughts after reading, April 5, 2018:
Though I was entertained by Max, and love Jason, sadly this was my least favorite of the series. The whole reasoning behind the 10 YEARS APART were pretty lacking. Yeah, I get being a confused 18 year old. Been there. But Maddy never even discussed anything with Jason, and I found her lacking. In the years since leaving, she's had plenty of time to contact him. I particularly didn't like her coming back into town, and then keep getting mad at Jason because o

Maddy Summers, the girl that rejected and left Jason Caro ten years ago is back in town and riling him up again. She was his best friend and first love. But the town might not be big enough for the both of them since their unresolved emotions and anger are just getting more and more explosive.

And when all of the rational girls are away, and only their husbands, Colt, Reid, and crazy Max are available for advice on dealing with her, a plan is formed. But plans spearheaded by Max are not usually

The Consequence of Rejection (Consequence #4) by Rachel Van Dyken.

4.5 Stars

I really wished I had read the previous books in this series. Starting with the latest release left me feeling I was missing out. Please don’t misunderstand me because I enjoyed this book very much. In fact, I plan to go back and read the books I missed out on. While this can be read as a standalone, I personally felt that I would have loved this book instead of just liking it had I read the others first. The secondary c

There's a really a beauty when it comes to romcom and a book doesn't need to be heart tugging and emotional to be compelling. This is true and I just had that with Rachel Van Dyken's The Consequence of Rejection. Gahd! This book did me so good, I'm still on a high with this second chance laugh out loud journey with a heart.

I have loved Rachel Van Dyken's works the moment I read her mafia series. Since then, I was so obsessed with her words because it felt like home. The Consequence of Rejection

Rachel Van Dyken is an author so many of my reader friends seem to enjoy, meaning she has spent a lot of time on my to-read list. Recently, I have been trying to expose myself to as many of these authors as possible, trying to improve my knowledge when it comes to the more popular romance authors. Thus, I decided to dive into The Consequence of Rejection.

It wasn’t a case of picking any Rachel Van Dyken book simply to say I have read one – no, this book did appeal to me. I was intrigued by the sy

I received an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review.

The fourth book in this series deals with Jason and his longtime crush Maddy. Truthfully I dove in this book, without having the slightest idea what to expect. Angst? Maybe? Instead, I found a hilarious plot, almost crazy side characters and lots of humorous moments. To be honest Jason was a little too slow-minded and silly for my taste, while Max was the craziest character I've ever encountered!

This book is light and a fast read and while it

Jason doesn't like to share, and sometimes gets violent when others ogle what's his, “that…” he put the shirt over my head, “… and if I see one more married man check you out, I’m grabbing my gun.” Jason really has crap luck, "I’d lost track of a lot of things in the past week. My truck door for one — my fault. My heart — her fault. My balls — the universe’s fault, not to mention an unfortunate run-in with lightning."

Yes! Jason's story is finally here, and the Consequences gang are all back together!

I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about the one who broke Jason's heart coming back. I was conflicted. I love a good second chance romance, but I hated what she did to him back in the day.

I shouldn't have worried, Ms Van Dyken brought things full circle with The Consequence of Rejection.

Everyone is in for some fun fun fun with the gang all back together!

Jason just hasn’t been able to catch a break. His friends are all married and here he is still trying to recover from the one who got away but when Maddy shows back up in town after leaving him standing on the side of the road wondering what just happened, it’s not his love but his anger towards the one girl he thought he would spend forever with that takes center stage.

You really fell for Jason. He’s been through so much. And

I am really not sure there isn't a genre out there that Rachel can't write. I may have only read two of these books so far, but I love this series so much. It is hilarious!!

The Consequence of Rejection is Jason Caro and Maddy Summers' story. Maddy walked away from Jason 10 years ago right after he proposed and never looked back. Jason has been trying to mend his broken heart ever since - was even engaged at one point. But has never been the same since high school when Maddy crushed hi

If there's one series that I have to admit that makes me LOL every time, then that is Rachel Van Dyken's Consequences series. The mischief and mayhem that the characters get up to are enough to make readers laugh out loud and then, of course, their's Max Emory. Max has got to be my favorite character of the Consequences series as he is a hard case character and does what he wants, just because he can. I was hoping that this was going to be Jason's story and was excited when I started reading it. ...more

If you are not familiar with the series like me, go and read first Max's book. That guy is hilarious and he was also the best part of this book. I swear every single time I laughed when I was reading this book was because of him. I simply loved him and I after I finish typing this review I will go and buy his book.

Second chance romances are not my thing and that was the reason I began my review with Max and not the happy couple from this book. Before you say anything, you should know that Rache

I've had a crush on Jason since the first installment of this series and was happy to see him finally get a chance for a HEA. Of course, anything involving Max and this lively cast of characters is not going to be easy. There are hilarious antics and light-hearted, fun moments I always expect from RVD. It was nice visiting moments from Jason and Maddy's past, but this book is definitely present driven. It is the perfect mixture of romance and longing, sprinkled with comedic moments.

I have been waiting for this one forever...at least it seems...Jason...oh poor unlucky Jason is here!

Mayhem, laughs and Max...is well...he’s Max. I adore these characters! I adore the angst and the hilarious laughs I was so happy to be back with them.

These are some of my favorite RVD people! I swear Max drives me batcrap crazy but I love him!

Jason’s story will have you laughing till your side hurts and cringing from his mishaps! But your going to love his story!

Poor Jason, I could have cried for Jason. The woman he loved and wanted to start a family with rejected him after his proposal and left town with his best friend.
10 years later they meet up when she returns to town, I have to say I did not like her actions towards Jason. She acted like he did something wrong and not herself. You do find out why and it’s understandable but still hurt him nonetheless.

“Laugh out loud good, 5 stars”

RVD’s Consequences books have always been my favorite of mine when it comes to her. There is something about the extreme ridiculousness that takes place in these stories that you can’t help but laugh at. They are almost to the point of making you think one person cannot have such bad luck and yet they do! In The Consequence of Rejection you have all the players you’ve fallen for in the last three books plus now Jason’s

This book was an emotional rollercoaster. I don't have any more words to convey how much this story is beautiful, broken, etc. It was an amazing ending to a great series. Definitely recommend.

I love this series so much, and had been waiting anxiously for Jason's story! These books are so fun to read. This one was a little more emotional than the previous 3 books, but it still had all the humor and craziness you'd come to expect from this gang. Seriously, these books are some of the funniest I've ever read!
Jason and Maddy shared so much history, it was sad that her insecurities separated them for so long. But even with all the years between them you knew they were "it" for each ot

Jason and Maddy seem to not have their lives together, and come crashing back into each other's lives. This book has, humor(a TON),lust, love, and adventure.

The Consequence of Rejection is the fourth book in the Consequence series by the fabulous Rachel Van Dyken. I'm one of her biggest fans and I love that she can write anything.

Second chance romance anyone? Rachel Van Dyken has managed to give us a remarkable second chance on love between high school sweethearts Jason and Maddy while also giving us a large dose of laughter along the way.

Van Dyken really gave me belly laughs with Jason’s friends Max, Colt, and Reid all previously featured in her Consequence series. Now, I’ll admit I came in on this one at the tail in never previously reading this series. I must have missed out on so much laughter and craziness of these

We return to another instalment of The Consequence series by Rachel Van Dyken and yes it’s another one that’s going to have you rolling about the floor in gut wrenching laughter.

This book is Jason’s story and it’s a second chance love story that’s a rollercoaster of emotions with a dash of turbulence thrown in. Jason had his heart broken once before by Maddy and so when she quietly returns to town, he just wants to retreat into himself again. Max, Colton, Reid and the rest of the gang h

I have been so excited for this book. Let me tell you - Rachel's books really do keep getting better and better! With every new release I am convinced that is her best work yet. Then I read another and am blown away all over again. Jason & Maddy are no exception!

This story and these characters are every bit the absolute perfection my rom-com / second chance loving soul needed! Add a RVD fix - gah on a level all it's own!

This is the first book I’ve read from the Consequence series and it can definitely be read as a stand-alone.

Let me start by saying the characters in this book are nuts. Max has to be one the most random, hyperactive and craziest characters ever. I loved him. STEAK SAVES LIVES! The guy killed me.

Jason had his heart broken ten years ago when the love of his life walked away from him. While he’s tried to move on, he’s never actually succeeded in getting the closure he needs. So when the

Jason doesn’t know how to get over the anger that he still holds on to, so Max, Reid and Colton are determined to help him. They begin by going through ridiculous steps to repeat the history of Maddy and Jason. Through it all, will they be able to overcome their past or will their past hold onto them.
