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.


I absolutely adored this book. Not much as the first one(read my review of Boomerang), but still, I consider this as one of my favorite NA novels. I love the fact that light NA novels exist and this series is a clear evidence of that.

At first, I had doubts whether I would like this book. I didn’t expect Adam’s love interest to be Alison, Ethan’s ex-girlfriend. I didn’t like her character from Boomerang, at all. BUT, as I read throughout the book, it felt like I was doused with a bucket of ice. I was wrong about her. She wasn’t the bitch that cheated on Ethan. Alison Quick, I am so sorry for misjudging your character. She’s totally a sweetheart and I quite like her character.

“There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.”

Adam’s character was kind of hard to explain. He’s kind of a playboy but at the same time he could be a real gentleman. He’s very adorable, I’d say. But not as adorable as Ethan, I’m sorry. Hahaha

I think that the chemistry between Adam and Alison was very much easy to catch. I like how they’re kind of crazy with each other. I also liked the cameos of Ethan and Mia in the book. It was funny and exciting.

If there was one thing I hated about this book, it’s Alison’s father. If I could just bang his head on the wall, I’d probably have done it already. I hate him so, so much, so props to Lauren and Veronica for creating such dynamic character. It just shows off great and effective writing style.

“I am made up of millions of energetic molecules – and each and every one of them feels charged and sure and just – fucking – awesome because of Ali.”

I loved the story and the fact that it ended with a bang makes me so excited to read the next one! I wonder who’s it going to be this time.
