The Consequence of Rejection by Rachel Van Dyken is the fourth book in her Consequence series. A second-chance romance story that is a funny and romantic read and is also perfectly angst-ridden. Told in dual POV with the appearance of characters from previous books in this series.
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!
