Synopsis: (from Goodreads)

The first book in a sensational New Adult trilogy from Noelle August.

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?
My Thoughts:
This book is so. incredibly. cute, and it made me very happy. If you’re looking for a romance that is relatively light and will make you smile, I absolutely recommend Boomerang.

This book features characters that are fully fleshed out, including the secondary characters. From the main characters’ co-workers to their friends and roommates, to their families: all of them were great. There’s quite a large supporting cast, but I found everyone so easy to keep track of because of how interesting and unique they were.

As for our main characters, Mia and Ethan had awesome chemistry. The forbidden nature of their relationship (because of their office’s no dating policy) helped keep their attraction at a drawn out sizzle, but either way it was clear that these two were fabulous together. I loved Mia's ambition and passion for film and creativity, and I adored Ethan's kindness and his love for coaching kid’s soccer. The joy he got out of motivating and helping people was adorable, and really spoke to his character.

Boomerang is an awesome New Adult read. It’s definitely romance focused, but it’s also so much about that important “what’s next?” question, about the characters figuring out their next step. I loved the swoony romantic tension and the fact that, while it features a couple of angsty moments, it mainly has a happy and sweet feel to it. New Adult fans, definitely pick this one up!

The Cover:
I don't feel like it represents the book very well at all, but purely based on looks I love the cover.
