Bounce by Noelle August #BookReview #Giveaway

This final chapter in the fun and steamy New Adult trilogy by Noelle August (authors Veronica Rossi and Lorin Oberweger) features two aspiring musicians who must choose between their careers…and their sizzling attraction for each other.
Playing the occasional club gig just isn’t cutting it for twenty-two-year-old cellist Skyler Canby, who’s trying to support herself and her mother back home in Kentucky. Persuaded by her best friend Beth to accompany her on an audition for the first feature film launched by Blackwood Entertainment, she figures why not? Beth’s a shoe-in for the lead, but maybe Skyler’s newly dyed pink hair will help her stand out enough to score a small speaking part.

Never in her wildest dreams does Skyler imagine she’ll land the lead role or that she’ll have her shoes knocked off her feet by the kiss her audition partner, Grey Blackwood, plants on her—a kiss that feels very real and not at all “acted. ”

After throwing a party that causes thousands of dollars of damage to his older brother’s home, reckless musician Grey Blackwood gets roped into working off his debt on the set of his CEO brother’s newest project. Grey spends his days fetching coffee and doing odd jobs around the studio, but he lives for nights when he performs with his band. He knows if he can stay focused, success as a singer is just around the corner. But that’s tough with a distracting pink-haired girl occupying his every waking thought.

Skyler and Grey have every reason to resist each other. But, like a song neither of them can get out of their minds, they have no choice but to go where the music takes them.

I would have to say Noelle August writing team are definitely go to books for me when it comes to new adult romance. Bounce does not disappoint and I feel sad it’s the last book in the trilogy. I kept thinking about what characters they could write the next book about and then was like oh I think this is the last book. Do book series have encores?? I definitely would be yelling encore for this.

I have loved the characters in this series thus far and I’m always thinking I couldn’t love another couple more than the one I’m currently reading. Then I fall in love all over again. I loved Sky and Grey, especially Grey. I’m so glad that Grey gets the chance to show everyone what he can be.

Skylar and Grey have chemistry and she knows it but she also seems him as being a bit immature and a musician. Now the thing about Sky is that her dad is kind of a deadbeat. He’s in a band and takes off at the drop of a hat. Leaving her mom and her family high and dry until he doesn’t to come back again. So you can see why Brooks, someone who has it together, has a plan for his life is more appealing to her. It’s not always about chemistry when you are looking down that long dusty road. So I could see her dilemma with not wanting to jump into anything Grey.

Grey is so sweet and adorable it’s hard not to love him. Although he does what Sky says and smashes and avoids. Everytime he ran away from problem I would get frustrated with him but it was so easy to forgive him. He would do something fun or cute for Sky and you would have to like him all over again. Plus you can tell he is the type of guy who doesn’t take a good relationship lightly. Out of the two main characters he is definitely the one that grows up the most.

As always great side characters. Titus and Beth and of course Garrett were my favs. Of course there is Brooks as well. How can Brooks not be the encore. come on.

The plot is great and revolves around a movie set which is different than the office setting of Boomerang. Gives them more to play with in a way. The thing I also enjoy is that the books all feel different.

I loved this addition to the series. I’m sad to say the series is supposed to be ending with this book. encore...maybe if I write that enough it will become true. Just a fantastic feel good romance that I think you should read.
