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 haven't laughed so hard reading a book since Eleven on Top by Janet Evanovich or You Suck by Christopher Moore.  I made the mistake of reading Colton while on the treadmill at the gym.  Needless to say, I got a lot of strange looks for random laughing.  I enjoyed Van Dyken's The Bet Series, but compared to Colton, it was just mildly amusing.  

Colton and Milo are completely unequipped to deal with their feelings for one another, so they resort to playground rules, tormenting one another and silly competitions.  Add in the fact that Milo is like a freaking bulldozer and you have instant hilarity.  Throw in a crazy-ass best friend (Max) with a flair for over-the-top dramatics and a grandmother that defines the term "cougar" and I'm in hysterics.  

The next book, Consequence of Revenge is next on my tbr pile.  I seriously cannot wait!  Thank you Rachel Van Dyken, The Consequence of Loving Colton has gone on my top 10 of 2015 list.  I'm pretty stingy about my 5-star ratings, but it is thoroughly deserved.
