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?
The Consequence of Revenge is the second book in the Consequence series by Rachel Van Dyken. You do not need to read the first book The Consequence Of Loving Colton to understand The Consequence Of Revenge. Personally they could be read as standalones.
The Consequence of Revenge is Max’s book. We were introduced to his character in The Consequence Of Loving Colton and I have to say he was my favorite character and I was looking forward to reading his story. I laughed a lot while I listened to the book to the point where I couldn’t breath.
I really loved the setting of a deserted island reality show that was very unique in my eyes. I’ve read some reality TV based books but never one with an island. It was definitely a unique concept.
The writing was funny in some aspects like I said I did laugh a lot. However, there were parts that dragged on and kind of made the story “meh”. It’s a quick and easy read that would probably make you laugh and brighten up your day.
