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?


Review: I just adore Max. He is so funny and beyond zany but so unlike any other contemporary character right now. I like a guy that is quick witted and a touch sensitive. I would love to see this book made into a movie.

I felt sorry for Max in The Consequence of Loving Colton when his whole life changed. Heartbroken he finds himself on an island with 25 women that are there for various reasons but mainly because he is the new bachelor. You really get to see who Max is away from Milo, Jason, Reid and Colt. The five of them seem to feed off of each other which makes for hilarious antics. You get the sense that those five would die for each other.

From the moment the book starts I was giggling at the antics of Max and all the secondary characters. Rachel Van Dyken has a way of writing that makes you smile and cheer on all the characters. She writes characters that are super lovable, witty and overly sarcastic.

Becca cracked me up throughout the whole book with the way she was able to take everything that Max said or did in stride. She was most definitely his intellectual sarcastic bad ass match.

I can’t wait to read Reid and Jason’s stories plus get to see how the first two couple are doing. I highly recommend this book to anyone that loves humor with their romance novels. You can never go wrong with an RVD book! They are all great.
