Welcome to Boomerang.com, the dating site for the millennial gen with its no-fuss, no-commitments matchups, and where work is steamier than any random hook-up
Mia Galliano is an aspiring filmmaker. Ethan Vance has just played his last game as a collegiate soccer star. They’re sharp, hungry for success, and they share a secret.
Last night, Ethan and Mia met at a bar, and, well . . . one thing led to another, which led to them waking up the next morning—together. Things turned awkward in a hurry when they found themselves sharing a post hookup taxi . . . to the same place: Boomerang headquarters.
What began as a powerful connection between them is treated to a cold shower courtesy of two major complications. First, Boomerang has a strict policy against co-worker dating. And second, they’re now competitors for only one job at the end of summer.
As their internships come to an end, will they manage to keep their eyes on the future and their hands off each other, or will the pull of attraction put them right back where they started?
“I want someone who just wants me, without question. And I want to want him back. And just go for it.”
It seems like forever since I have read a New Adult book that I absolutely adored. Boomerang by Noelle August was the perfect blend of angst, romance and comedy. I loved that the story read more like a romantic comedy than the usual dramatized New Adult reads of late.
The opening scenes of this story were fun and witty and I found myself chuckling at their antics. Aspiring film maker Mia Galliano and soccer start Ethan Vance wake up after what is thought to be a one night stand. Neither of them can remember what happened the night before. They are both running late for their first day at their new internships, and are in for a surprise upon arriving to their first day of work when it turns out they both have the same internship at Boomerang, an up and coming dating website. Two interns=One job at the end of summer. Unlucky for them Boomerang has a no employee fraternization policy….
Follow along as these two lovable characters slowly piece together what really happened that fateful night and at the same time fight the chemistry between each other. Throw in some fun side characters and this makes for one fun beach read! I am excited to see where this new series goes! 4 Stars
NOELLE AUGUST is an anagram for Veronica Rossi and Lorin Oberweger. Just kidding, it’s a pen name!
VERONICA ROSSI is the author of the New York Times Best-selling UNDER THE NEVER SKY trilogy for young adults. The books are available in more than thirty countries and the film rights have been optioned by Warner Bros. Veronica completed undergraduate studies at UCLA and lives in Northern California with her husband and two sons. She is fond of dresses with pockets, fluffy dogs, and cheese and chocolate — but not together.
LORIN OBERWEGER began her storytelling career by captivating her first-grade class with tales of her summers on a kibbutz in Israel. Lorin had never been to Israel. While teacher/parent night put an end to her first experiments in fiction, she’d already caught the bug and eventually made a career of all things story. As a long-time independent editor and story development guru, Lorin’s client successes range from small press publications to major bestselling novels. She’s an award-winning author and has also worked behind the scenes as a ghostwriter on a variety of projects. Her work has received starred Kirkus reviews and glowing mentions in The New York Times. Oh, she did get to see a kibbutz, eventually, and found out she had it pretty much right all along.
Veronica and Lorin met at a writing workshop and just knew they were destined to create awesome things together.
