Review: The Consequence of Seduction by Rachel Van Dyken

Review: Oh, Reid. What Grandma did to you… Once again, this series toed the line between ridiculous and too ridiculous so well. Aaaaand it had Broadway, which makes everything better. I had no idea this Phantom of the Opera fantasy was a thing, and I kind of love it. I mean, I knew Leslie Knope loved him: But I didn’t realize it was other people, too. She also thinks Ben Wyatt has an elf butt…and likes it. So I don’t always relate to her turn-ons. Back to the main point (which relates pretty well to Leslie Knope, actually), this book […]

Review: The Consequence of Revenge by Rachel Van Dyken

Review: True story: I read this while on a business trip in June, and the laughter-induced snorting it caused was so bad that my coworkers (and roommates for the trip) came into my bedroom to check on me when they thought I was choking to death. Remember in my review of The Consequence of Loving Colton, when I said they straddled the line between outrageous and outrageously annoying really closely? The Consequence of Revenge straddled it even more. Not because the writing was really different or anything. Max was just always the most over-the-top character, so it’s a given when he’s […]

Review: The Consequence of Loving Colton by Rachel Van Dyken

The Consequence of Loving Colton Review: When I first found Rachel Van Dyken’s books, I was all about the suspense. I devoured the Eagle Elite series, despite having drastically different feelings during rereads. Cut to today, and instead she’s one of my favorite romantic comedy authors. Between Grandma + company in The Dare and Max especially in this, she writes the most amazing caricatures. Most of the characters in this book straddled the line between outrageously hilarious and outrageously annoying pretty closely, but it worked. Like 85% of the time, they were hilarious instead of annoying. There were times where someone was […]

Review: Ember by Rachel Van Dyken

My Review: Okay, so real talk? While I love these mafia men (boys?), the angstiness and emo-ness of their POVs were starting to wear on me. I had enough emo in high school when I listened to nothing but Dashboard Confessional and The used. And the female POVs could only help so much. Until Bee. God, I love her. She was the perfect, perfect, perfect balance to Phoenix, who might be angstiest and emo-est of them all (with good reason). The male and female POVs were the perfect side-by-side in this book. Like chocolate and peanut butter. You had Phoenix, who […]

Excerpt: Enforce by Rachel Van Dyken

Oooh, I’m excited for this one! Reading Elite, I had a lot of questions. Things just seemed so far-fetched. I think this book will clear up a lot. Note: This book is Nixon/Chase’s POV of the timeline and events in Elite, Eagle Elite Book #1. Chapter 1 Excerpt: Nixon’s POV: I watched as the parade of cars made their way through the black iron gates, as if somehow those gates would protect them if the country went to war. Funny, they had no clue that the war—Lucifer himself, was already parading around inside, safe from the police- the feds- anyone […]

#ThrowbackThursday Review: Elite by Rachel Van Dyken

My Review: So since this book just came out in paperback, I think it’s time for another throwback! I just reread this after reading all of the other books in the series. Honestly, I forgot how undecided I was about this book the first time I read it. It was one of those situations where I kind of hated myself for buying the next book in the series, but I needed to find out more and see if the series redeemed itself. I’ve read all the others except for Bang Bang (which is still sitting in my TBR Kindle folder). […]
