—a Boomerang novel—
By Noelle August
At Boomerang, one night can change everything…
Noelle August has taken the New Adult genre by storm, and readers can’t wait to see what chaos, confusion, and connections arise at the Boomerang offices next.
Adam Blackwood has it all. At twenty-three, he’s fabulously wealthy, Ryan Gosling-hot and at the top of his game in the business world. His life is perfect, until a scandal from his past resurfaces and threatens to knock the tech wunderkind down and throw his company, Boomerang, a hook-up site for millennials, into chaos.
Alison Quick, the twenty-one-year-old daughter of a business tycoon—and the very ex-girlfriend of Boomerang’s former intern, Ethan—has a problem of her own. After nearly flunking out in her senior year of college, she has one chance to redeem herself to her father by proving that she deserves a place in his corporate empire. That means spearheading her father’s plan to sink big money into Adam’s company and launch it into the stratosphere—provided Adam has no skeletons in his closet.
When the two meet, their sizzling chemistry makes it tough to keep things strictly professional. But when Alison discovers Adam’s secret, she knows she should bring it right to her father, who’ll leverage it for his own gain and use it to ruin Adam. The only problem: she’s falling for Adam—hard.
Will earning her father’s approval come at the price of losing her first real love? Or can Adam and Alison leave behind past mistakes and conquer the world—together?
One of the things I really like about this book is that it’s about Allison. Allison screwed up her relationship with Ethan, who was featured in the first book, in a really horrible way. Unfortunately everyone makes mistakes, big and small. I love that her character gets a chance at redemption and proves good people can sometimes do bad things.
I liked Adam, the young businessman who is both driven and compassionate towards his employees. He created Boomerang and is now trying to expand into film. He needs the help of an investor, specifically Allison’s dad, and is ready to prove his worth.
The story brings the two together for the same but different reasons. Allison has accepted her mistakes and is trying to make amends. Adam is trying to forget his mistakes by running from them. They find themselves caught up together when they both have a need to prove themselves.
The romance is brewing with chemistry. These are two power players challenging one another. You are not going find either one being meek. I like how they can relax and be themselves and the way the story itself starts is perfect.
I loved the story and the writing. Definitely a NA worth picking up. Reading it I could tell the next book would be involving Grey and I am excited for it.
