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?

— Goodreads.com description

First thing you should know: Noelle August = YA fave Veronica Rossi and author Lorin Oberweger.

Second thing: This is the type of new adult read I am sooo into.

Boomerang is more rom-com than your typical NA angst fest, and THANK GOODNESS for that.

It’s cute, definitely more grownup than YA (ifyouknowwhatimean) and there’s ton of chemistry between Ethan and Mia from the get-go.

If you’re ready to graduate from YA and want something a little less dramarama than most other NA books out there, this book is a great one to start with!

PS: I hate this book cover, though. If you turn it around, the dude is wearing some SERIOUSLY high-waisted jeans…

    BAHAHAHA high-waisted jeans. Oh man. That made me laugh.

    Even though this one is labeled as “NA”, in my head it’s so more Adult. I loved it though! Really fun premise and funny characters. I will definitely be reading more in this series.

    It was cute, it made me smile. And yes, no NA issues! Tired of the damaged characters saving each other. Glad you enjoyed it!

    Thank goodness it’s not just me who is O-V-E-R that aspect of NA! I actually like books now and then about damaged characters, but what I don’t get it that the WHOLE GENRE is doing it.

    YES! Exactly — I don’t need all that dramarama in my NA. And I’m glad I’m not the only one with cover issues!
