REVIEW REvengeRDBanner


amazon usAMAZON UKAmazon CA


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?




When I saw an ARC available for a book by Rachel Van Dyken, I accepted without even reading the blurb. I had only read one other book by her before…The Bet, but I loved the crap out of that one. I had no idea there was a book 1 to The Consequence of Revenge, but there IS. –The Consequence of Loving Colton- I stopped everything and read that one first…hilarious, I tell ya, hi-lair-eeee-us!

The Consequence of Revenge took the cake on the funny OTT shenanigans, but I had so much fun reading it. I fell in love with the beautiful, metrosexual Max instantly (in book 1). He is way, way, WAY out there but I don’t even care. I did kind of feel that the bachelor meets survivor storyline was a wee far-fetched but like I said…it was a fun read. Rachel’s writing makes it that much better.

Max and Becca were perfect for each other and the smexy times were pretty damn smexy! I love a good laugh when I’m getting down and dirty.

If you love a funny, OTT, love story drama then READ this…also read Colton and Milo’s story first that way you can get the full Max effect in that one! 🙂
