the positive reviews for this one on my various feeds, I just had to try it out for myself Now that I m done reading it I can see what all the fuss is about, but personally, it wasn t my cup of tea Fans of the new adult genre and maybe even cheesy romantic films will clearly enjoy this onethan I did, since I m not a fan of either.If there was one thing I appreciated about this book, it was the fact that both Mia and Ethan acted and talked the way people their age would There are so many immature characters and even characters who are too mature who we bookworms rant about, but these two had real and raw voices.Boomerang could have been a real hit with me Realistic sounding main characters make it so much easier for me to relate to the characters, to laugh along with their jokes and to be frustrated and tired when they are While I did find it very easy to chuckle whenever someone cracked a joke, it was hard for me to get into the characters minds, maybe because they were thinking too much about each other Really, I should have counted how many times I wanted to duct tape these people s mouths or fry their brains so that they d stop thinking It could also be due to the fact that, let s face it, I m a young teen, and this book is meant for new adults.The characters were all pretty likable, actually Mia was a very laid back and down to earth heroine, which is pretty uncommon in the few NA novels I ve read I think she d be a fun friend to have in real life, but since we got a look into her thoughts of Ethan , I was definitely rolling my eyes a lot Ethan was, well, not an ass He was competitive, but he was still nice and respectful to his competition.See, the story revolved around these two and how they were competing for a position at Boomerang They had a one night stand on the night before the first day of their internships Everything was definitely way too convenient for them, and how they suddenly realized they would be working at the same company It was a bit bothersome I wished there was at least some parts of the novel that wasn t centered around just the romance.Again, the main thing that got my eyes twitching was how often both characters thought about how gorgeous the other was and how attracted they were to each other Too much monologues about each other I got it the first few times, okay No need to mention it every chapter.I didn t get the point of the story What s the lesson The essence of the book Is there even one There probably is, but I personally can t figure it out This was basically a book about two almost adults who pined for each other throughout the entire book, but not wanting to risk other things for their possible relationship Very cliche, and definitely like a corny romantic movie.Fans of the new adult age group will definitely be able to enjoy this onethan I did If you re looking for a book with depth, then this isn t it If you re okay with a shallow but fun story, give this a shot Well, this was fun I had heard such great things about this book from my friend Karen at FWIW, but I approached this with some trepidation since I wasn t a huge fan of UNDER THE NEVER SKY This turned out to be such a flirty and sexy story, though, and a really enjoyable addition to the NA genre Plus it s actually about that age post college when you re embarking on your career There s some escapist strains credibility rom com type stuff, but I didn t really mind that And big, big points for Well, this was fun I had heard such great things about this book from my friend Karen at FWIW, but I approached this with some

age post college when you re embarking on your career There s some escapist strains credibility rom com type stuff, but I didn t really mind that And big, big points for elements of the Los Angeles art entertainment corporate settings and intern job experience being handled with a lot of authenticity.One quibble after such great build up with sexual chemistry tension, I think the actual sex could have been a little better, and maybeof it Still, a really fun romanceand I ll definitely be readingbooks from these authors in the future I do not read much New Adult NA , usually it is just a Young Adult YA with sex and tragic childhoods thrown in But if Boomerang is indicative of what the NA genre is evolving into I will be readingin the future.This was a super fun romantic comedy with interesting characters that are just starting out in life in their very first internship It is the slot in life right after college when you are trying to figure out what to do with the rest of your life and you are sure at some point y I do not read much New Adult NA , usually it is just a Young Adult YA with sex and tragic childhoods thrown in But if Boomerang is indicative of what the NA genre is evolving into I will be readingin the future.This was a super fun romantic comedy with interesting characters that are just starting out in life in their very first internship It is the slot in life right after college when you are trying to figure out what to do with the rest of your life and you are sure at some point you are supposed to feel like a grown up but most of the time it still feels like you are pretending to be grown up We meet Mia and Ethan the morning after A morning in which the very hung over pair are trying to remember what exactly happened the night before as they are searching through the apartment for Mia s very scattered clothing It is hurried as they are both starting new jobs The opening scene is extremely funny and a great intro into the book.It s easy to like them both immediately They joke and have a great natural banter, there is definite chemistry between them that is put to an abrupt halt It seems they are both working the same internship that will result in only one position and to make things worse there is a no dating policy at Boomerang.But, they just met and can t even remember how far things went the night before so it shouldn t really be that hard.right What ensues is great sexual tension as both try to fight of the attraction between them What makes it even worse is Boomerang is a new dating site for people looking for something that might not be an eHarmony love match butof a date with possibilities wink wink Mia and Ethan are working in marketing and are assigned to go on Dates as field research Ethan dreads watching Mia on a Date with someone from the site Time did not fly Today time broke a wing and had to be put down I ve just spent four hundred and eighty minutes thinking about Mia, looking at Mia, and actively not thinking about and looking at Mia. I flew through these pages The shifting PoV between Mia and Ethan kept the story moving along very quickly and gave insight in the lives and thoughts of both characters which I totally loved Mia has a great group of female roommates and a slightly crazy but adorable family Those are some of the funniest scenes But her girls are also there to tell her when she is screwing upYou don t wait around for anyone or anything But with boys, you act like goddamn Sleeping Beauty Like they re the only ones with choices to makeEthan has a great family, roommates and a budding bromance with Rhette did I mention I love bromances Ethan also has a little baggage from his past in the form of an ex girlfriend, but who doesn tWe ve accepted each other in a new way We put the past where it belongs Rhett s scowl deepens She has you speaking in greeting card, bro You can t reduce life to a pithy statement You sound a lot smarter when you re pissed You commit to stupid shit when you go to sushi with your exBut not to worry this is not a love triangle quadrangle, it is just hard enough figuring out what you want and what you are supposed to want at this age Ethan and Mia both make some mistakes along the way while trying to do the right thing but you are always rooting for them There is angst, some situational some emotional but it was a good balance and I just wanted to continue reading and never became overly upset with the characters.Overall I liked all of the characters and the situations I flew through the pages and dialogue and couldn t wait for the two to remember what actually happened the first night they met As portions of the evening are slowly remembered eventension builds between them I enjoyed the family interactions and felt like these could be real people just starting out in life.Definitely recommended for just a general good time read Review posted on The Eater of Books blog Boomerang by Noelle AugustBook One of the Boomerang seriesPublisher William Morrow

blog Boomerang by Noelle AugustBook One of the Boomerang seriesPublisher William Morrow PaperbacksPublication Date July 8, 2014Rating 3 starsSource Copy bought from Summary from Goodreads The first book in a sensational New Adult trilogy from Noelle AugustWelcome 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 upMia 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, wellone 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 taxito 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 What I Liked It s been a while since I ve read a New Adult book and that was very much on purpose For the past couple of years, I ve been so sick of the age level New Adult and its most popular genre contemporary romance So NA contemporary romance and I broke up for a while I decided to give this book a shot because 1 Veronica Rossi is one of the authors HELLO, LOVE HER, and 2 I m on the blog tour for Rebound see my post next week , so I felt the need to read this one before reading Rebound While I didn t love this book, I m glad I gave it a chance especially before reading Rebound.This book starts with Mia waking up and finding herself in someone bed, completely nude She doesn t remember much from that night, just that she was very, very drunk, and she went with a guy home The guy, Ethan, is in bed as well, also nude, but she can barely remember his name As they scramble to get ready for their jobs, they take a taxi, not realizing they re going to the same place To the same internship.Boomerang is looking to hire one person, and Mia and Ethan will have to compete against each other to win They will design a booth for Boomerang, effectively marketing the dating site Oh, and no fraternization between coworkers Which leaves Mia and Ethan in an interesting situation, given how that night before their first day at Boomerang Is workimportant than growing feelings I really liked how this book started with Mia and Ethan waking up after an intimate night No one knows exactly what happened did they have sex, did they just mess around, etc , but it was cute how comfortable with tension filled the two of them were The way Mia describes Ethan makes me want my own Ethan to wake up next to haha.I liked Ethan a lot I liked Mia too, but I liked Ethan a lotWe get both of their first person point of views, which is nice Ethan is such a sweet guy, but he s always saying stupid things and doing things that can be misinterpreted He coaches soccer nine year old boys , but he really needs the money that working for Boomerang could offer him Ethan really likes Mia, but he thinks it was a one night thing, and he needs the jobthan a girl he just met Right Also, he s a soccer player You know how I feel about soccer players Mmmm that physique but in all seriousness, it s my favorite sport tied with tennis.I LOVE how the authors makes certain aspects of a relationship today so REAL There are several times when Ethan says something to Mia, and doesn t realize how Mia will take his words The word nothing is a really bad word to use with a girl It was nothing , it meant nothing , etc Like, we could totally understand what Ethan MEANT, but what he said was misinterpreted This happens all the time in real like, and I love the authenticity Same goes for things he DID, as well.This story is pretty quick, light, easy to read, fast paced The romance is important, but the story involving Boomerang and the internship is important as well I wantedbetween Ethan and Mia alone, but there are some scenes between them that made me smile They have a lot of chemistry, but they also care about each other from the start.The story ends satisfyingly, and of course, there s plenty of room fornovels Companion novels work well with this series What I Did Not Like Like I said above, I wantedfrom just Ethan and Mia I feel like they re not alone enough, and there isn t enough tension exposed between them Sure, they think about each other a lot, especially as they slowly recall what happened that first night, but it s not the same as actually being two inches from each other and wanting to jump each others bones Hehe.This is a personal thing, but I didn t like the whole competition thing I didn t like the idea of the two protagonists competing for something This story arc doesn t sit well with me But again, me.I didn t really like another part of the story that I didn t mention Boomerang is a dating site sort of like eHarmony of OK Cupid or something Naturally, as employees of Boomerang, Ethan and Mia go on experimental dates with other people for the sake of company research, of course A me thing, I think, but I didn t really like this plot arc It s obvious that the authors put this in the story so that the protagonists could feel a good dose of jealousy But eh Bot a me thing The ending, in terms of the booth, is TOO cookie cutter perfect So cliche I didn t like that particular part It s so goody goody, almost But that s okay.Would I Recommend It This definitely was not the worst New Adult contemporary romance novel I ve read not by far , but it wasn t the best that might go to Foreplay by Sophie Jordan It didn t have too many cliches and overused tropes, but I did want seefrom the physical side of the romance But perhaps I would recommend this book I ll read Rebound and let you know about this series overall.Rating 3 stars Catch my review of Rebound next week, as well as all things blog tour related You ll see if I liked Reboundthan I liked this one
