The Consequence of Loving Colton by Rachel Van Dyken

Published: April 21, 2015

This book was hilarious! I absolutely loved it! It was recommended to me by a friend who knew that I needed something happy to read and I’m glad that I didn’t read the reviews first. Many of the reviews likened the book to slap stick comedy but I really loved it. Maybe it was slap stick but I thought it was hilarious and definitely worth a read for everyone. Especially someone who needs a little pick-me-up in the form of an enjoyable book.

Milo has always had a crush on Colton but he has only ever seen her as his best friend’s little sister. And as a little sister to him as well. She can’t believe that she has to spend an entire weekend around him when she has been avoiding him for years. But it is her brother’s wedding and since Colton is the best man she has to be around him. But her big mouth gets her in trouble and soon he believes that she is in a relationship with her best friend, Max. Who then decides he needs to come rescue her and invites himself to the wedding. Though the goal is to get Colton to admit his feelings for Milo the whole thing might just kill them all first. Especially her poor brother Jason.

Colton doesn’t know exactly when his friendship with Milo changed but he misses how it was. She was always the tomboy girl but she was also the princess whose dragons he slayed. Until he started realizing that she was growing up and his feelings for her became significantly less than platonic. Now they are in the same room together again and after a very intense game of ping pong he kisses her only to find out that she has a boyfriend. And of course she does because she is great but he can’t help but feel like if he doesn’t tell her about his feelings he may lose the chance forever. Only his chances are dwindling as he is torn between his duties as best man (or the worst best man ever by almost killing his best friend in his distraction) and Max (Milo’s boyfriend). He doesn’t seem like her type at all. He also thinks that none of them are going to survive this weekend.

I was in tears I was laughing so hard at this book. Normally I can keep my laughs to myself when I’m in public but this time I was just glad that no one was in the break room with me. I was busting a freaking gut. So to all of you who need something truly funny to read and one ripe with sexual tension this is your book. Give it a shot and I’m sure you’ll end with a smile on your face.

—“Milo and Max were sitting in their seats at the table, drinking wine, pretending everything was peachy as shit, and I was about to not only rain on their parade, but shoot thunder and lightning out of my ass.” -Colton, p. 122—
