A Boomerang Novel

Buy Links: Amazon / B&N / IndieBound

 

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?

REBOUND will be available wherever books and e-books are sold on February 10th, 2015 (ISBN: 9780062331083 | $13.99 | e-ISBN: 9780062331090 | $11.99).

Excerpt #2 – Adam POV

Ali laughs. Her gaze feels like sunshine on my back, but I don’t turn around. I pull my wetsuit up to my waist, adjusting myself so I’m comfortable. The cool Neoprene layer feels familiar and my body responds, my heart thumping hard, anticipation rushing through my veins. The prospect of the ocean always does this to me. This has nothing to do with the girl behind me.

“Adam?”

Ali’s voice is close. Turning, I almost bump into her.

Her wetsuit is all the way on, which is good. And terrible.

“What’s up?” I ask.

She smells like suntan oil and peaches. This close, I see that her cheeks are turning slightly pink from the sun. With her hair pulled back, no makeup, and the wetsuit covering her completely, she looks better than she has all week at the office. Better than she did in the Catwoman costume. There’s something powerful about her now. The way her slender legs are planted firmly on the swaying boat, like she’s not trying at all. She’s at home on the water. This from an admitted equestrian. I can only imagine what she’s like with her horses.

“Sorry, but . . .” She smiles and points at her back. “My zipper’s jammed.” She turns around and pulls her ponytail up. “Can you help me out?”

“Sure. You want this on, right? Just want to be sure.”

I can’t see her face, but I know she’s smiling. “Yes. On please.”

I allow myself a moment to enjoy the way she looks right in front of me. Then I take the zipper leash, letting my knuckles drift over her back, just above the knot of her bikini.

If I weren’t completely focused on her, I’d have missed the way she curls slightly toward me.

Focus, Blackwood. Zip the wetsuit up.

My Review:

Rebound (Boomerang, #2)Rebound by Noelle August

This is book 2 in the NA Boomerang Series. Thank you to the publisher, William Morrow, for the review copy.

Overall impression: A heartfelt, romantic novel that will have readers swooning and cheering for Adam and Alison. Perfect for anyone who is looking for a NA contemporary series.
Cover: I love it. Sweet, fits into the times they spend in or on water.

There were so many things to love about REBOUND.

The complexity of Adam’s life and what drives him to succeed is fascinating. Alison’s struggles with her past and the poor choices she’s made, haunts her. Her love for neglected horses and her ability to help them thrive was a wonderful element in this novel. Noelle August did a great job of taking readers onto the ski slopes, surfing, sailing, and sea diving. The descriptions put me right into the scenes, and because of it, readers get to know the passions of these characters.

The chemistry is incredible, starting from the Halloween party. Alison is Catwoman and Adam is Zorro. It goes from there. These two spend a lot of time together because Adam is looking to get Alison’s father to invest in his film production company. Alison’s father is a selfish, greedy, cheating bastard. Family loyalty is everything to him. Thank goodness Alison ends up seeing who he really is.

Readers, you do not have to read these books in order. Perhaps some of the subtler details will make more sense if you do, but it’s not necessary. I DO recommend this Boomerang Series for anyone looking for NA contemporary romances novels.
