The Consequence 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 fiancée, what could possibly go right?

I couldn’t get enough.
My abs aches because I laughed so much. Okay that’s a lie. I do not have abs, but I do ache from laughing so much.
 Milo is madly in love with Colton. She has been ever since she could remember. Colton is her childhood friend, best friend and her older brother’s best friend. Milo and Colton shared one kiss and that was it.
From that day forward Milo knew Colton would never see her the way she sees him.
Isn’t unrequited love a you know what?
Four years later, Milo is back in town for her brother’s wedding. She has been away for college and hasn’t seen Colton that much, despite how close they use to be growing up.
I completely loved this plot. I loved the unrequited love. I love the brother’s best friend and childhood crush storyline. Oh my gah, it’s so good!
So many things are thrown in and so many things happen. Here’s a tiny recap.
-          Gay? College best friend Max
-          Slutty grandma < --- every book should have one of these
-          Accident prone older brother <--- Totally love
-          Crazy bride < --- like really, crazy crazy
You throw all of that into a book and you got a Rachel Van Dyken yummy goodness read. It’s delightful, entertaining and slap-my-face-funny.
I had SUPER good times reading this
Milo is in town for the weekend and she just wants to attend the wedding and go back to school, but when she sees Colton she becomes a mess.  Her feelings are all over the place and she doesn’t know how she will survive the weekend.
Colton hasn’t seen Milo in four years and he doesn’t realize how much he missed her until she’s thrown in his face during the weekend, like really she’s thrown in to his face a few times. It’s funny I swear.
Like I said, if you are a fan of The Bet series or you just love Rachel Van Dyken like I do, then read this! You will be aching all over, but in a super good way.

“Aw, sweetie.” Max laughed and pulled me in for a hug. I winced as my pounding head made contact with his chest. “Believe me, if we would have slept together, you would remember, even drunk, you would remember.”

“Someone’s cocky.”

“Confident.” He released me. “So are we upset or are we okay?”


“Partners.” He winked. “For life. You and me, we’re a we.” He lifted the coffee to his lips. “Hey, that rhymed, how badass am I, after getting drunk last night?” He nodded his head. “Sharp as a tack.”
The coffee slid out of the cup and onto his hand.

Lots of cursing followed.

Then flailing.

“Yeah.” I took the coffee away. “Sharp as something.”

“So.” Max reached behind him and pulled out my diary. “Curious minds want to know, when you drew that picture of the house you and Colton were going to live in once you got married in front of the queen of England, did you purposefully draw the dog without a tail or were you just confused?”
“Give me that!” I lunged for the pink diary. “How the hell did you find it?”

Max held it above his head and took a sip of coffee. “People always hide interesting stuff under their mattresses, though I had you pinned for more of a signed ’N Sync poster, considering all the stupid hearts around JC Chasez’s face on the torn-up poster in your closet.” The freak had gone in my closet too? “This is just as good. Though I have to admit, I’m a bit disappointed that you chose Prince Harry to walk you down the aisle. Do I mean nothing to you?”

“I had a thing for royalty!” I shouted, my headache making a fierce pounding in my temples.
“Mmm.” Max set his coffee down but kept the diary above his head. “One last question.”
“If I answer, will you give it back so I can burn it?”

“I’ll give it back.” He held up his hand. “But burning this would be a crime. It’s like reality TV only worse, I seriously cried real tears and it wasn’t because the story was sad. Oh, and P.S. It took you five years to spell nightmare right, just thought I’d let you know.”
