This is the fourth book in the series but can also be read as a standalone.
I'd highly recommend this book and the rest of the series to anyone looking for a light hearted, fun book 😊
5 big stars from me!

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.
I laughed, I cried, I laughed some more. My heart hurt for Jason as he tries to find his way back to his love, and she frustrated me so much, the way she left him but expected him to just forget things. She still felt a little juvenile at times, but I guess that is because of the trip down memory lane.
My main man Max is back big time in story. Oh boy, he had me in stitches though I could completely understand how he could be annoying to those around him! When he, Colt, Reid and Jason are all together - well, you never know what is going to happen next!
And you never know what the consequences will be when you reconnect with your long lost love.
Thank you Ms Van Dyken for another wonderful new book.
I can't wait to see what comes next.
If you've read the first two books, you know how funny the cast of characters is and you'll be happy to know that the gang's all back, including Max, Reid, Milo, Colt, and Grandma. We're introduced to Maddy, who plays an integral part in this story and whom I came to adore.
Rachel Van Dyken brings back her signature humor and stellar story-telling ability in her newest romantic comedy. While you may need the tissues in a scene or two, she keeps with the first two books in the series with the laughs. Each chapter starts with quotes from Max's best seller and only gets better from there.
Jason has always been an enigma to me and I've needed his story since The Consequence of Loving Colton (funny book, by the way). The author captures the heart of the characters, especially Maddy and Jason, and tells their story with feeling.
This book is heartfelt and was a joy to read. I am so glad that Jason finally gets his happily ever after, even if he did have Max's help to get there.
I can’t believe that this is one series by Rachel Van Dyken that I hadn’t read before and well that will be rectified asap. If you are like me and haven’t read the previous books, don’t worry you can read The Consequences of Rejection as a standalone. From the very first few pages, I was already cracking up. The banter between all of the characters was spot on and some of the best I have ever read. You can’t help but laugh out loud at some of Max’s antics and Jason’s unfortunate luck. The Consequences of Rejection is a second chance romance filled with laughs, sweet moments and forgiveness.
Jason and Maddy were high school sweethearts until Maddy broke Jason’s heart when she ran away. He never understood why she did and it really broke him because they had been best friends before becoming boyfriend and girlfriend. When she comes back to town he is still angry and hurt but can he forgive her and can Maddy explain what happened to make her run. I swear I don’t think I have ever read or known someone as unlucky as Jason was, I mean when you read the book you can’t help but ask what else if going to happen next to this poor guy. I understood where Maddy came from when she decided to run, I felt for her but I also wish that she would have spoken with Jason because it is obvious that these two are meant for each other.
The Consequences of Rejection was hilarious, sweet, and yet another great book from Rachel Van Dyken. I can’t wait to be able to read the previous books because this gang is already in my heart and I want more. This is a must read romantic comedy and one that will have you laughing out loud from the very start.
Received an ARC for which I voluntarily provided an honest review
Jason and Maddy's story was a very enjoyable read with many laugh out loud moments along with some tears. Jason has a knack for getting himself into some of the craziest situations. If it wasn't for bad luck he would have no luck at all. I am very intrigued with Jason's group of friends, they are quite hilarious especially Max. OMG! so I have some serious catching up to do with this series and I cannot wait.
Do yourself a favor and join the craziness Read This Book You won't regret it.

Jason has been unlucky in love, and well life, for the past ten years, since the love of his life, Maddy, left him high and dry with no explanation, now she's back in town and he doesn't know how to handle it, so his band of friends decide to help him get closure so he can hopefully lose his bad luck streak and finally move on with this life. If you've read any of the previous books (which you do NOT have to) you'll know that this is NEVER a good idea, especially if Max is involved, and only bad and unfortunate things can come to Jason, and trust me.. they do and it's hilarious.
Maddy ran 10 years ago from the love of her life, and as the story progresses, we get to know why she left, and as much as I didn't want to like her, I adored her, and was rooting for her and Jason to finally get their second chance.
With Max involved in the scheme to either get Jason to move on, or to get the girl, you know there is going to be shenanigans and I will say I was laughing out loud the majority of this book. The parts in front of each chapter with Max's gems from his book, OMG, priceless, and made this book so much better, and truly helped put into perspective what to expect going into the chapter.
The road for Jason and Maddy wasn't easy, it wasn't going to be easy without the gang there to cause a ruckus, but include them, and it was 100x worse. I was hooked into this book, and couldn't stop reading to see how and if they were going to be able to make it. There was so much hurt, but the feelings were still there. And the prologue into this book, bad me guessing all throughout the book on what happened to get them to the point once again.
I will say there is angst in this book, but just the right amount. The laughter, antics, and everything else totally outweighs the rest, and if you're looking for a light read, this is the perfect one to one-click. I am a huge lover of second chance romances, as well as romantic comedies, so put them together, and you have a winner from me. I absolutely adored how we got to see the whole gang together in this book, so if you've read the previous titles you get to see them, but if you haven't you get to meet them and then you'll want to read their books too, and I am thrilled with how Rachel did Jason's story, it was the perfect story for him, and I am so happy to see him get his HEA finally. I am just now sad that these characters all now have their HEA and now we have to say goodbye. These have been some of my favorite characters to love and enjoy and I am so glad that this series of stand-alone's ended on such a high note. I highly encourage you if you're a lover of second chance romances and want to read a book that will have you laughing so hard at times you'll have tears in your eyes, to grab a copy of The Consequence of Rejection by Rachel Van Dyken today!
I have been waiting for Jason’s book to release. This poor guy has been put through the ringer and survived. His well intended friends and family have tormented this poor guy. He needs a break and for someone to kiss all of his booboos.
Rachel Van Dyken brought Jason full circle without it hurting him too much. I thoroughly enjoyed Jason’s journey to happily ever after. I needed the giggles that came along with this romantic comedy.
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!
Hilarious banter made me laugh out loud. The heartbreak and soul shattering rejection were tangible. The chemistry and pull these two felt - I felt from head to toe. Like wow on the sexiness that builds up and when they give in - whew fanned myself! The hope that they could heal, forgive and move on whether together or apart was so real.
With the brilliant intervention from our favorite supporting cast (Max, Reid, Colt, Milo, Becca & Jordan) Jason and Maddy find their way. It's not easy. There's hurt feelings and disappointments to work through but those are beat out by the overwhelming desire for the future they always wanted. The feelings that are stronger than ever. Unfolds absolutely beautifully. Loved every word!
I hope this series continues with maybe some adventures with these couples into parenthood. I can imagine the shenanigans they can get into with babies.
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 his dreams and took his heart with her.
So you would think would be a sappy love story but let me tell you it is anything but that! Rachel made me love these characters. Jason has the had the worse luck lately and things don't get any better when Maddy quietly returns to town. However, Jason's friends are fed up with his hum drum attitude and want to try and change his luck now that Maddy has returned.
I won't give you any details of what the boys have up theirs sleeves (really just Max), but you are in for some great belly laughs with this one. When the girls are whisked away for a spa weekend, Max recruits Reid and Colt to assist him in his idiotic, yet at times genius plan, to help Jason get over Maddy so he can move. Let's just say that things are about to get really fun and enjoyable!
Rachel laid out a great story with some amazing characters. Not only do I love the main characters, but the secondary character are just as amazing and great. They all play an integral role in this one and just makes everything all come together. And Rachel really has me wanting to go back and read Max's book now.
Another awesome story to add to this series. Great series with amazing characters. Each story will have you laughing so hard and wanting to know each other their stories.
Maddy Summers was Jason’s high school sweetheart; he wanted to give her everything, but all she gave him was a broken heart, so when she returns to their hometown, there are unresolved feelings and questions that force them to go back 10 years ago when Maddy left town and took Jason’s heart with her. There are consequences to both of their actions – the ones in the present as well as the ones from when they were a couple, and now that it looks like they will be in each other’s space for the foreseeable future, they need to at least come to a truce and learn how to be around one another, especially when it’s clear that their feelings never dissipated regardless of the decade they’ve been apart.
I love second chance romances; the fact that the hero and heroine already have history together definitely makes their reunion more intriguing, and then when you add in Max’s disastrous plan and Jason’s last ditch effort to stop ticking off the universe, it’s one heck of a hilarious, chaotic romantic comedy that finally gives Jason his shot at forever.
There are so many laugh out loud moments in The Consequence of Rejection that I couldn’t stop giggling, which makes sense because Jason’s new bff, Max, is hell bent on helping Jason by any means necessary, and of course, Max calls in Colt and Reid as reinforcement, even though Jason will probably need saving from them more so than from Maddy.
I do have to admit, though, that I feel like Max’s hijinks and big personality, at times, overshadowed Jason and Maddy’s story. Max is definitely an in-your-face kind of guy and he just so happens to be Jason’s self-proclaimed best friend; Max’s role in reuniting his bestie with his lost love is a huge part of the story line, but as much as I adore Max at the center of everything, I really wanted Jason and Maddy to be the focus throughout the entire story, and there were parts that put them in the background, reveling more so in Max’s over-the-top antics than anything else.
Overall, I loved being back in Rachel Van Dyken’s quirky and unique world; it’s good to know that even though Max, Colt, and Reid have found the one for them that they still know how to raise a little hell and cause quite a bit of mayhem regardless of the fact that they are in love. The comedic shtick is strong with these boys, so there’s never a dull moment when they’re all together, which is both a blessing and a curse for the women who put up with them!
4 Poison Apples
Ten years later and she is back in town. While the girls are away at the spa his buddies, with Max as the leader, have come up with the perfect plan to help him get over her so what could possibly go wrong besides everything!
Their journey to relive their pasts so that they can finally move forward is filled with laughs, love and emotion but when it over were they finally able to overcome the mistakes of the past or is Jason destined for heartbreak for another 10 years?
I have loved this series with the zany characters that never fail to cause mayhem wherever they go and that is what makes it so good!
Jason never got over the fact that his high school sweetheart, one-and-only, woman he wanted forever with left him the day after he asked her to marry him. NOT ONLY LEFT HIM, but ran out of town with his supposed best friend... Now that Maddie is back he has to somehow reign in all the emotions that are ticking over and figure out how to stop the Universe being so mad at him. Between old lady Ethel, the door of his truck being ripped off, and being struck by lightning it's only a matter of time before the Universe puts an end to him. Unfortunately for Jason, his NOT best-friend Max is determined as only Max can be to set things right with the Universe.
Maddie hated having to move back home but the situation necessitated it. Working as a waitress and having to wait on her ex-fiancé and love of her life while he is out to dinner with a much older woman, weird and depressing. Finding out how badly she hurt him, sad and yet hopeful. Her fear caused her to run all those years ago but she isn't going to be afraid anymore. Unless it is lightning because with Jason's luck, it could strike twice.
Hilarious and emotional at just the right balance. Well-paced and well-written (as always) I absolutely adored this story. Told in dual POV, complete story with HEA. Enjoy!
