Boomerang by Noelle August & Lorin Oberweger
Format: E-book (purchased)
Publisher: William Morrow Paperbacks
My Rating: 3.8/5
Synopsis: 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?
So lately I’ve been in a mood to read fluffy romance and my friend Sarah from The YA Book Traveler recommended Boomerang to me, so I decided to buy it since it was $2.99 on Kindle!
I will not lie, but the writing did take me a while to get used to. Sentences were awkward to me and I couldn’t picture the book throughout the entire story. THANKFULLY, writing does not bother me immensely when it comes to books, I prefer stronger written characters and that’s what I got!
This book is written in dual perspectives (between Mia & Ethan) and the plot was refreshing (to an extent for a NA novel) and we were introduced to a fun set of characters. The chemistry between the two main characters was evident and things wrapped up nicely. There were some obvious coincidences throughout the novel, but that’s expected. This book is light hearted but there are a few serious scenes and it balances the book well. Besides the writing style, I wish we had more emphasis on the awesome friendships that were introduced to us. Friendship in books (I feel) is an integral part of character growth and is another layer that makes the story enjoyable so I wish the author delved into that a little bit more.
Along with the awesome plot, great characters and everything else, I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a good NA novel or something fluffy (with a few steamy scenes).
Do you have any other awesome NA book recommendations?
