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?
I have to be honest here… I think I may have liked this one better than the first one. The reason why I know this is because I actually had to go back into Boomerang and skim it through a bit and see what exactly Alison did to her Ex in that book. Oops. :X
After going through something horrific with his last girlfriend in college, Adam has closed himself off from any sort of romantic relationships and only resorted to hookups and while blaming himself for what happened in college.
Alison, oh Alison, it’s probably a good thing I didn’t remember what it is you did in the first book that caused your relationship to Ethan to to end or else I may have not read this book….Alison has recently graduated college and now she needs to prove to her dad that she can handle the family business. I ended up liking Alison a lot. She was a good person who made a terrible mistake, but after learning more about her family, and especially her dad, it all made sense. I’m so glad that she and Adam found each other and are able to help each other get over things that happened in their past and move on with their lives with each other!
This was a cute story, but it did get a bit emotional at times. There is quite a cast of characters in this series and I liked them all! This book did start out with Insta-Love, but it totally worked in this story! So don’t let it turn you off from continuing on with the book.
I can’t wait for the next book in the series, Bounce! We’ll get to know Adam’s brother, Grey Blackwood, better in that one. 😉
