Promo Tour, Book Review, Giveaway | The Consequences of Loving Colton by Rachel Van Dyken

It’s all fun and games…until someone’s heart is broken.

They’re not kids anymore, but Milo Caro is certain that Colton Mathews will only see her as his best friend’s little sister for the rest of their lives. After all, he made that clear the night before she left for college. But four years later, her brother is getting married and Colt’s the best man—and guess who is the best man’s last-minute date?

Milo vows to use the wedding to either claim the smoldering firefighter’s heart or douse this torch for good. When Max—her best friend from college, who may be carrying a torch of his own—crashes the party, they devise a plan to make Colt see what he’s missing. But after Colt catches on, he decides to cook up his own revenge.

Now it’s personal. Colt and Milo are at war, and between Max’s questionable acting methods, an unfortunate trip to jail, and a maniacal fiancĂ©e, what could possibly go right?

Kissing you is terrifying, breathing your same air makes my knees weak, when I’m around you it’s a tie between wanting to chase you down – or just kiss you until you can’t breathe.
Milo loved Colton since they were kids, but she never gets past that little sister’s zone he placed her on. She tries her best in staying clear of him, especially after that devastating rejection. Now, her brother Jason is getting married, and Colt, is the best-man. And Milo? She’s the last minute date.

This was the moment she was waiting for: either to stake her claim or give up on her life-long pinning over the guy who can’t seem to decide what he really wants. Now, there’s Max: adorable, trouble-making, super funny, and great-kisser Max who might be carrying a torch of his own who came to save her or to cause more trouble. He was determined to help her to make Colt see what he’s been missing. But when Colt realizes what they have been up to, he has some revenge of his own. 
“I am not your sexless friend. I’m not your damn brother. I’m not your gay friend. And I sure as hell not am not thinking about anything right now except that your hands feel really good against my skin. So I’m going to kiss you, and you’re going to respond like the idea of my mouth on yours doesn’t make you want to cry – and you’ll like it.” ~ MAX
It was a wild crazy ride – one lie on top of the other, over-the-top acting skills, unexpected trip to jail, a weekend wedding to a bridezilla, and an instant fiancĂ©: it will keep you hooked in the pages.
“I’d rather fight with you, bicker with you, every damn day of my life than having nothing at all. I’m selfish enough to want any piece of you – even if it’s the bad, the ugly, the ridiculous. So even if you hated me, I’d still die a happy man – because I’d still be on your mind.”
 Colton can be irritating at times. I love the fact that this one is in alternating POV, you will understand and you will know what is running on his mind. He’s hot, and then cold. He’d come after her, then reject her. arghh. As for Jason – his revelation was a big surprise. I was one of my favorite scenes.

“I don’t deserve her.” I cleared my throat. “But I want her anyways.” 

I can’t help but reiterate how funny this book is, but it can be endearing and sweet (yes, it has those moments), and those are rare but they can be heartwarming.
The other thing about moments that are given to us? They’re limited. We don’t get an endless amount. If you miss them, they’re gone. Time machines don’t exist; you can’t go back and fix what’s been broken.
Rachel Van Dyken made my night. Contrary to my expectations of heartbreaking drama, The Consequences of Loving Colton is one big laugh-trip. Fall in love continuously. Not just with one boy – but with at least three!

To say I love it would be an understatement since I can’t stop shaking my head and laughing in every page as the story unfolds. This book is different from the rest of my reads these past few days and is really refreshing especially coming from one of my favorite authors.
          Love shouldn’t be something you jump into because it’s the right time in your life or because your friends are all married. It should be something that happens naturally, and in the end it turns into the supernatural because suddenly, you can’t imagine waking up every day without that other half. You no longer want to be an individual but a team.


“I win,” Colton said, his eyes narrowing, “she promises never to bring up the pancake incident again—or at least for a year, we all know it’s hard for little squirt to keep her mouth shut.”

I stuck out my tongue.

Colt’s eyes heated for a brief moment before he swore and said, “Cute.”

“And your terms?” Jason’s eyes narrowed. “If you win?”

“I want . . .” I bit my lip. I wanted a kiss. I wanted time with Colton, I wanted . . . “Colton watches Star Wars with me.”

Colton groaned. He was the only guy breathing who hated Star Wars. When he was little he’d had nightmares that Jabba the Hutt was in his closet.

“Four, five, and six,” I added.

Jason whistled under his breath. “Tough terms. Tough terms.”

“I accept.” Colton shrugged as if he didn’t have a care in the world. Bastard. “I’m not worried, been training, lifting weights . . .”

Yeah, I’d noticed. Not that he’d needed to before, but damn, now the man was cut.
