Our Rating


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 twenty-four 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?

This book includes mature subject matter that may not be appropriate for readers under the age of 18.

The Consequence of Revenge

After reading The Consequence of Loving Colton, I was in the mood for more fun romance, and this sequel seemed like the perfect solution.  After all, I was already in love with the characters, and the first story was such fun.  Plus, this one was about Max!  Unfortunately, this was one bet that simply didn’t pay off.  I was so quickly bored with the story line, not really interested in the whole Bachelor-esque thing, completely over everything that should probably have been funny, and unable to really get into it at all.  I’m not sure if the utter chaos at the end of the last book just used up all my tolerance for silliness, or if this story just wasn’t as good.  Either way, I’m sad to say I only made it about a third of the way through before I bailed on the previously awesome Max and found something more enjoyable.
