think? Should I give him a try?
Don’t you just hate it when someone destroys all your carefully made plans?
I mean, I had goals: college to graduate in one semester, a future I was working hard to reach, and an image of myself I wanted the world to see. My life was stacked into these precisely placed blocks. But then Colton Gamble came along and knocked them all askew.
I hated how he messed everything up, how he could hog all my attention whenever he was around, how he made my pulse quicken–but only because he ticked me off…not because I was attracted to him. Oh! And I hated how he knew how attractive he was too, the shallow, full of himself, doesn’t take no for an answer, too-flirty, too cocky, extremely irritating jerk.
The boy had all the qualities that turned me off. Or so I thought.
One night he wasn’t quite the brainless, over-confident jerk I usually took him for.
One night, he took care of me when I was at my lowest. He opened up to me and made me open up to him.
Now I’m learning maybe he’s not what I first thought he was. And maybe I’M not what I first thought I was. Maybe it’s okay to rearrange a couple of my perfectly set blocks. Maybe, just maybe, I’ll stop worrying about what I’m afraid everyone else will think and finally reach for something I really want. It’s possible some of my plans need to be destroyed, and Colton Gamble is exactly the kind of mess I need in my life.
What do you think? Should I give him a try?

❤ MY REVIEW ❤
Linda Kage does it again!
I absolutely ADORE this series. It’s definitely up there as one of my all-time favorites and I’m so so sooo sad to have to say goodbye to these characters. This is the ninth book and I’m still so completely invested in all of their lives! Colton and Julianna’s story did not disappoint! Consolation Prize was sweet, swoony, heartfelt, emotional, and powerful.
Colton Gamble is all grown up and hot as hell, and damn, it makes me feel dirty thinking about him that way since we met him when he was just a child. LOL. He’s sexy, cocky, funny, and caring. I just love him! Colton knew about Julianna’s crush on his older brother, but that doesn’t him from flirting with her. Julianna Radcliffe has been harboring a crush on Colton’s married older brother, Brandt, yet she can’t help but be drawn towards Colton.
I loved the banter between these two. You could also just tell how crazy they were about each other. Their love was crazy intense and passionate.
While I’m sad to see this series end, I can’t wait to see what Linda Kage has in store for us next!
