My impression of the first novel in the series, Boomerang.

I’m thrilled to be involved in this cover reveal for Noelle August’s second book in the Boomerang Series. I read Boomerang last week. Unfortunately, I haven’t had a chance to write a full review. Here’s a quick impression: The characters and story were fresh, interesting, engaging, sweet, and romantic. Loved that the two main characters were interning at the same company and were vying for the same full-time position. I also loved that they were forced apart because of company policy forbidding office romances. Lots of tension and swoony moments! The series is perfect for those looking for contemporary NA novels.

 

REBOUND – Summary

At Boomerang, one night can change everything…
Adam Blackwood has it all. At twenty-two, 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?

From Goodreads:

It all begins with a stupid question:

Are you a Global Vagabond?

No, but 18-year-old Bria Sandoval wants to be. In a quest for independence, her neglected art, and no-strings-attached hookups, she signs up for a guided tour of Central America—the wrong one. Middle-aged tourists with fanny packs are hardly the key to self-rediscovery. When Bria meets Rowan, devoted backpacker and dive instructor, and his outspokenly humanitarian sister Starling, she seizes the chance to ditch her group and join them off the beaten path.

Bria’s a good girl trying to go bad. Rowan’s a bad boy trying to stay good. As they travel across a panorama of Mayan villages, remote Belizean islands, and hostels plagued with jungle beasties, they discover what they’ve got in common: both seek to leave behind the old versions of themselves. And the secret to escaping the past, Rowan’s found, is to keep moving forward.

But Bria comes to realize she can’t run forever, no matter what Rowan says. If she ever wants the courage to fall for someone worthwhile, she has to start looking back.

Kirsten Hubbard lends her artistry to this ultimate backpacker novel, weaving her drawings into the text. Her career as a travel writer and her experiences as a real-life vagabond backpacking Central America are deeply seeded in this inspiring story.

My Review:

WanderloveWanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard

Catch the travel bug with Wanderlove!

Any young adult who is thinking about taking a trip after high school, but isn’t sure about it should absolutely read Wanderlove. Bria Sandoval takes a trip to Central America and finds herself on a tour with people over three times her age. It’s hardly the tour she thought she had signed up for. When a backpacker named Rowan asks her to come to an island for dinner, it’s the beginning of a new adventure for Bria. She goes through many challenges, both physically and emotionally. It’s a time of great discovery and an opportunity to reconnect with drawing, something she loves to do but gave up because of a painful breakup. As she rediscovers her passion, she begins to realize how much she wishes she hadn’t allowed a guy to keep her from pursuing her dreams. Her revelation is quite insightful. I loved Bria’s journey of discovery. I loved traveling with her and learning more about her life. I loved finding out about Rowen and appreciated how he decided to turn his life around. I loved Wanderlove. It’s another YA novel I highly recommend.
