Publisher's Summary

From New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken.

Reid Emory has never had reason to question his luck with the ladies. As the owner of a lethal set of aqua-blue eyes and a devastating grin, this Hollywood heartthrob always brings his A game...but lately his luck seems to have run out. The actor is in need of some help, and there's only one person he can trust to take his love life - and his career - to an explosive new level.

Jordan Litwright's newest client is trying her patience. As a publicist, she's more than content to stay in the background and let others shine. But when a publicity stunt backfires, she suddenly finds herself thrust into the spotlight - as Reid's new love interest. And while other men usually overlook her, Reid is focusing in with laserlike intensity. There's no denying they have serious chemistry.

But once Reid breaks into the big time, can they turn their made-for-the-media romance into a forever love?

One of the funniest series I have ever listened to

The whole series was absolutely hilarious, I read some comments about over acting blah, blah, blah, I think that's the reason why I loved it so much. Amy McFadden and Nick Podehl both made this series one of my favourites, I laughed so hard and couldn't wait to listen to the next book in this series. Rachel you have another fan, I`m thrilled that I finally found your wickedly funny books, beautiful writer to boot. Your choice is narrators sealed the deal for me, I`m out to listen and read all your books.

Lots of Laugh Out Loud Moments

Would you consider the audio edition of The Consequence of Seduction to be better than the print version?

I have not read the books but can easily say that the audio is much better just because the narrators do such a terrific job with the characters and voice inflections. They truly captured the personalities of each character.

What did you like best about this story?

I like how the characters from the other "Consequence" books are still involved with the characters of this story. There were so many moments of out loud laughter, even times when I laughed so hard I cried. The characters are funny and the narrators did a great job bringing them to life.

Which scene was your favorite?

One of my favorite scenes is when the two main characters are talking in the apartment and the brother of the main character (who lives next door and is a huge busy body), calls out to them to speak a little louder because he can't hear them.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Sure, but I rarely can.

Any additional comments?

I love this series and can't wait until the next one comes out. I know it is going to be as hilarious as the others were, maybe even more because the main character is the guy who always seems to be getting into trouble without even trying (bitten by red ants and discover he's allergic, getting a black eye from being an observer at a ping pong game, etc.) I would have to say that no matter how many times I've listened to the series, I still experience those bouts of laughter throughout the story. The narrators do such a terrific job with each character, esp. when Max comes into the scene.

All the stars

5 is not enough. Hilarity at its finest coupled with romance, sexiness, angst and friendships.

I have loved every minute of this series. I literally can't wait until Jason's book. Amy McFadden and Nick Podehl are magic together. Seriously. Magic.

It's because of this I give them all the stars.

Not as funny as the other ones

Where does The Consequence of Seduction rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The performance was great. The story.....I liked it but I was dissapointed as it was not as funny as her other stories. The others had be laughing so hard that I cried. I feel like she toned it down on this one which could of had some serious craziness. I was really looking forward to the over the top craziness that these characters get in. I'm hoping the next book will be like that.

Excellent narration for a funny rom-com

I'm loving this series. All the books in the series are laugh out loud funny. These books have fantastic ensemble "casts" with great supporting characters. Read the other two books in the series first before you read this one- all the supporting characters are really involved throughout each book. I thought that this book wasn't as funny as the other two- less "silly" but there were definitely some really funny passages. And it's wonderful to see a man who understands the value of a woman beyond her looks. What a fantastic hero, heroine and especially moral of the story. There's so much heart in these books. I am so happy i found this series and this author.

The male narrator, Nick Podehl is amazing. I've bought the audiobooks for all the books in this series because I just love how he can infuse such humor and emotion into his voice. The female narrator is great as well. Looking forward to the final book in the series!

The Consequences of Seduction

Max never fails to interfere in everyone’s lives and completely screw up any plans that are made. This time he’s trying to set his brother up with anyone just so that he can be in a relationship longer than a week. He sets Reid up publicly and could potentially kill his acting career with the latest Max Idea until Jordan - Reid’s PR assistant- steps in.

As always Max’s antics are hilarious. And Reid is on the same sneaky level as Max. Can’t wait to read Jason’s book.

Spotlight and Action!!!

Man, oh, man! I got to say, Reid....SIZZLE, SIZZLE! I think it’s safe to say all girls have their insecurities and Jordan is no different. It’s just nice that Reid sees Jordan in the brightest light because she, sure, is. Of course, vice versa. May curves on a women sense beauty as well dedication on career. This is pretty hilarious & panty dropper, I guess. LOL. I enjoyed reading this & now, the next book is all about JASON! :). Let the fun begin! Haha. AUDIO NARRATORS, AMY & NICK ARE AWESOME!
