After losing his best friend to another guy, the notoriously too-confident Max Emory suddenly feels lost. He may have devastatingly good looks, an abundance of charm, and a claim to one of the biggest hotel empires around, but he has no ambition anymore. So when his fed-up friends decide they ve had enough of his moping, they sign him up to be the next bachelor on the reality series "Love Island." And between his pride and his forged signature on an ironclad contract, Max just can t say no. Now he s stranded in paradise with twenty-four women, one terrifying goat, and Becca, the breathtaking barista who already turned him down back home. The closer Max gets to Becca, the more determined he becomes to win her over. As she gets to know him better, things start heating up. But is Becca really after Max s heart or is she after the cash prize she could claim once the cameras stop rolling?"

What I Thought


After reading book #1 in the series, The Consequence Of Loving Colton, I was super excited to read this book. Max stood out to me big time in the first book, so I new The Consequence Of Revenge would be funny. I wasn’t prepared for it to be stomach clenching funny though. I found Max’s actions, the way he spoke and even his thought process hilarious. After reading The Consequence Of Revenge, I came to the conclusion that Rachel Van Dyken has a genius mind. To come up with some of the storlines in this book and the characters in this series in general.

So…….the gang (Milo, Colt, Jason and Reid), set up Max to be the new bachelor on a dating reality show. They think Max needs an intervention. He’s lost. He doesn’t know what to do with himself after graduating from college and after his best friend married the love of her life.

Max will be living on an island with 25 very pretty ladies for 3 weeks to see if he can find love with one of them. The prize for the ladies is a relationship with Max or $250,000.

Becca needs money to finish college. Whilst working at the local Starbucks, Becca has already rejected Max’s advances after he tried to impress her with his terrible pick up lines. So imagine Max and Becca’s suprise when they both board the flight to ‘love island’ to start filming the reality show and they spot each other.

Max and Becca start spending time together on the island and out of the questionable variety of women/crazies, Becca clearly becomes Max’s favourite. He wants to get to know her. Even starts to think about giving up his ‘man card’. Becca soon starts to waver on her reasons and priorities for going to the island. The money starts to take a back seat to Max’s wit, charm and even those pick up lines.

So, in the 3 weeks we have some desperate ladies, an Oompa Lumpa producer providing crazy activities and dates, a gecko called Little G, Hades an underwear eating goat, back and fourth revenge between Max and his brother Reid, a few close to death encounters and skinny dipping. It certainly makes for an adventurous and exciting time for both Max and Becca.

In the end though, does it come down to love or money!

Sounds a little crazy hey? Well yes, maybe it is, but hilariously so. This book was so much fun to read. I have to admit, I enjoyed reading The Consequence Of Revenge more than book #1. It had me laughing out loud so much. Although The Consequence Of Loving Colton was still fantastic 😉

So yes…….the story is crazy funny and fun to read but you have your super sweet romance in there to. Max is just…….swoon 🙂 I was also so happy that the whole gang were involved in the story. I love when characters in a series remain involved throughout. The book is dual point of view and even though it’s jam packed it’s not to much. It just works and flows throughout. 

Rachel Van Dyken’s brain is brilliant! Yes I am repeating myself but it needs to be put out there! Her storylines and characters in the Consequence series are quirky and fun and easy to read about, hence why I am a big fan. The Consequence Of Revenge though, is a fantastic Rom Com that could bring anyone out of a funk!


Sweet Score
