Goodreads' Book Description:Hooking up is only the beginning of the fun in this sexy and irresistible second installment of the thrilling New Adult series, Boomerang.

Adam Blackwood has it all. At twenty-two, he’s fabulously wealthy, Ryan Gosling-hot and at the top of the heap in the business world. His life is perfect, until a scandal from his past resurfaces and knocks the tech wunderkind down, throwing his company, Boomerang, a hook-up site for millennials, into chaos.

Three years ago, Adam married his high school love—and then lost her in a tragic accident. Now, the heartbreak and guilt he’s tried to bury with work and women begins to take over his life.

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. She’s got one chance to prove to her father that she deserves a place in his empire by grabbing control of Boomerang and taking Adam down.

But as Alison moves in on him, armed with a cadre of lawyers and accountants, she discovers there’s much more to Adam and Boomerang than meets the eye. Will earning her father’s approval come at the price of losing her first real love? It appears so, unless Adam can forgive her for wrecking his life and trying to steal his livelihood. But Alison hopes that old adage is right. Maybe love can conquer all.

Natasha's Experience:Noelle August has done it again (as if I had any doubt!). In the first installment of this series, BOOMERANG stole my heart and gave me one of the funniest--and loveliest--stories I have ever had the pleasure of reading. REBOUND stole my breath (because I was honestly laughing so hard at times) and gave me the perfect combination of steaminess and enticing drama.

REBOUND may have topped the first book, which is definitely saying something. I mean, I loved BOOMERANG, but now I'm just obsessed with REBOUND.

We first met both Adam and Alison in BOOMERANG and they were both pretty mysterious and intriguing characters. Finally getting inside their heads was quite the experience.

Alison Quick is misunderstood and has lost her faith in good, healthy relationships. She's pretty closed off and likes to keep her distance from anyone that might want to change that about her. Adam Blackwood definitely wants to change that. They work flawlessly together because they complement each other in the best possible ways. They also both happen to be stubborn when it comes to love. Finding a balance between business and pleasure becomes exceedingly difficult with their attraction stuck in the middle.

I'm a HUGE fan of the writing duo, Noelle August, because they have such an amazing writing dynamic and always manage to reel me in with their words. This fun, lighthearted, hilarious, sexy-as-hell read is one you don't want to pass up.

boomerangIn case you missed BOOMERANG...

Welcome to Boomerang.com, the hottest recent startup in the trendiest city: Los Angeles, CA. Why? Because the site offers no-strings, no-fuss relationships for those on the rebound and those who crave connection—without all the baggage of long-term promises.

But that start-up buzz is fading as Boomerang struggles to grow. The solution? Find two brilliant interns and give them a crack at launching the site into the stratosphere.

Enter Mia Galliano and Ethan Vance. These young strangers—Mia an aspiring filmmaker, and Ethan at the end of a collegiate sports career—are both bright and motivated. And for very different reasons, they're both hungry and up for the challenge.

But things go wrong from day one. For one thing, the night before their stint at Boomerang begins, Ethan and Mia meet at a bar and fall into bed together. What exactly happened between them? Good question. They're both hazy on the details. But they do know how awkward it is when they end up sharing a post hookup taxi . . . to the same place: Boomerang headquarters.

There they find they're competing for just one job—at a company with a strict no-dating policy. But their connection is as powerful as their ambition. Will they manage to keep their eyes on the future and their hands off each other?
