Publisher's Summary

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 24 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?

Another hilarious performance

Every once in a while all the stars align and magic happens. That is what The Consequence series and Amy McFadden & Nick Podehl have going on.

Max is my favorite Consequence character. I love his verbal diarrhea and in this book we get to see his softer side as well. Amidst all the hilarity of a dating game show we see Max fall in love and it was amazing. While the story line may be predictable, no one could predict the antics of The Consequence characters. Every single minute is full oh highly entertaining comedy.

if only bachelor shows had max

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely, this book had me laughing the entire time. It was such a sweet story, one that as an easy listen that made you feel good.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Consequence of Revenge?

Two words...goat and gecko. The fact of the matter is, it was hilarious. And the way max interacted with the crew of the show...honestly there were so many memorable moments it's really hard to choose.

What does Amy McFadden and Nick Podehl bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Nick Podehl is amazing. I don't think listening to this story would have been near as good with any other narrator. He has this way of bringing out the goofiness of all the characters that made it so easy to fall in love and laugh. Amy McFadden is another reason. She conveys emotion so well, she sucks you in and makes you feel it too.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Annie and Max`s final date on the show. I don't want to give anything away, but what he tells her will make you fall in love.

Any additional comments?

I wish there were guys like Max on those bachelor shows, hilarious, honest, scared ;) I would actually watch them if they did. I love feel good stories that mAke you laugh and I've never cracked up out loud while listening to a book like I did with this one. It's a real light and feel good story that will have you laughing for days when you think of it. I'm sure people could nitpick it if they were so inclined but honestly, it would be grasping at straws to find something. Critics tend to be harsh, I've overlooked books with a bad reviews then later went back and read them and found them to be good. This story definitely can hold its own.

4 The Consequence of Revenge Stars

I enjoyed the heck out of book 1… But book 2 WAS FABULOUS!!!!

I love it, I laughed out loud. I snorted people I DON’T SNORT!

Max is so freaking humours; I can’t even tell you how funny I thought the whole Goat thing was haha. And it was to funny that all the friends got there Revenge on good ole boy Max.

Becca is sweet and cute and funny, she is perfect for Max she totally had the witty banter going. She was is equal and I loved that.

The reality show part was good and all but I could have been happy without all that.

And the narration!! I swear it’s PERFECT for these characters! Loved it.

I can’t wait for the next book!

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

Rachel Van Dyken Never Disappoints/Comedy Gold

I love Rachel Van Dyken's version of comedy. Her characters are funny and sweet. I also have a clumsy streak like poor Jason and a joyuos streak for hilarious theatric revenge like Max. I feel really awful for poor Reed in certain parts. Very funny.

Hilarious and Nick Podehl is awesome

I'm a huge fan of the author and this series is one of the major reasons why. Even better, this story centers around Max who is just the heart of the series. Egotistical but with a heart of slightly tarnished gold, he has some of the best lines of any character is any rom-comedy. His constant humor, wit, (over)confidence and, well, his heart, just speak to me. I loved him in the first book and I loved him even more in this book.

Nick Podehl, is amazing. Becca is great too, witty with hilarious retorts. And something this author is amazing at is an ensemble romantic comedy. The supporting cast and how they play off each other is genius. So many funny parts to this book, the setting of which is a play off of "the Bachelor". Be forewarned, the type of humor is slapstick and sometimes, you just have to roll your eyes at the incredible silliness of what's happening. But it doesn't matter because all the characters are so likable and fun and you root for the hero and the heroine to achieve their HEA.

The Consequences of Revenge

After the fiasco that Max caused at Jason’s wedding, the many Grandma incidents that he continues to inflict of Reid, and his lack of direction since graduation Max’s friends and brother decide to send him on a dating show. They claim it’s to help him figure out what he wants to do with life, but they each find a way to may the situation worse for Max at every opportunity.

I really love this series. It’s absolutely hilarious. Max is off the wall ridiculous with some of the things he says and does but you just can’t help getting wrapped up into his charm. Becca was a great balance to Max. She’s fun enough to play along with his randomness but level headed enough not to cause more problems.

The audio by Any McFadden and Nick Podehl was great. The characters voices matched them well.

More Max, more fun!!!

This is such a rom-com!!!! I asked for more Max...I definitely did. Once again, it’s over the top shenanigsans like the first book. I think it’s best to read the 1st book, this can not be stand alone considering you wouldn’t truly understand “fully” of his crazy personality. I gave it a 4 out of 5, the silly jokes or witty banter can get on your nerves. I guess too much max, overload my own sanity. The girl, though, was a perfect match :). Overall, I dig reading this book a lot! Next book is about his brother Reid. Yay!!!!! (AUDIO NARRATORS- AMY & NICK: ONCE AGAIN, THEY ARE THE BEST.)

Such a fun story!

Over the top, laugh out loud comedy. I loved Max's story. We get another book with the great characters we met in The Consequences of Loving Colton, but you don't have to read that one first. Max's story definitely stands alone.

Becca and Max first meet in a coffee shot when he blows his chance with some cheesy pick up lines. When he becomes the next bachelor on a reality hook up show, Becca can't help but fall under Max's spell. Max's character is so over the top, but he is so funny. I found him endearing and I love this cast of characters. Becca takes him on like no other woman can. I loved watching these two fall in love and all of the fun that happens on the island.

Ms. Van Dyken writes a fun, romantic comedy with quirky unforgettable characters. Great series!

The narrators really help to bring this story together. It is done with perfection. I loved listening to the wild and crazy things that Max does and these two definitely told the story. I loved it!
