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?

––This is a New Adult romance novel recommended for ages 18+ due to sexual content and mature subject matter.

When this tour became available I couldn’t wait to get my book crazed hands on it. I absolutely loved the first in the series, Boomerang, and couldn’t wait to dive into the world again. Rebound takes us back to the Boomerang headquarters with the man that created it all, Adam; young, wealthy, and very very attractive.  Adam meets a mysterious woman dressed as Cat Woman at a Halloween party and they hit it off right away. Cat Woman turns out to be Ethan’s ex, Alison Quick, the daughter of the new hopeful major investor of Boomerang.

After Halloween night, Alison and Adam need to keep their relationship strictly platonic, since they’ll be working together and Adam really needs to make this deal with Alison’s father to take his company to the next level. Their initial attraction to each other still stands very strong, so the fighting of temptation is absolutely fun. Adam needs this big deal, Alison needs her father’s approval, but when feelings get involved and truths are revealed can their attraction to each other withstand everything else?

I completely fell in love with this series, the characters, and the strength everyone has had throughout. In Boomerang and Rebound both, their female characters, are strong career driven women, they have their weaknesses, but who doesn’t? I love when New Adult books make their females strong, and not portrayed as being weak and need to be picked up and put back together, or  that they can’t do it themselves and they need to be saved. Adam and Alison needed to do things on their own, but they also needed the shoulder of each other to lean on. With Rebound the tone was set a little heavier than Boomerang, which I was kind of sad about because I loved the wittiness of Mia and Ethan, but it still captured me and made me crave more of their story, to know them inside out.

I love this series by Noelle August and definitely recommend it to any fan of New Adult, or if you even want to try the genre it’s a good place to start. The story gives you strong characters, love, hope, disappointment and everything in between.

Excerpt #1 - Alison's POV

I give myself to the music and the movement of my body, but over and over again, I’m drawn back to him. And every time, his eyes are on me. Every time, he greets me with that same devastating grin that cuts right to my core.
Finally, I can’t take it anymore. I give in and dance his way, running my mink tail through my fingers. I smile at him, feeling light and relaxed and like no one in the world would dare deny me a thing.
“Dance with me,” I say.
“Is that a question?” he asks, folding his arms across his chest. His biceps bulge beneath the flowing black fabric of his shirt, and his eyes, which seem to be a deep, penetrating gray, regard me in amusement.
“No,” I reply, still swaying as the music flows through me to wrap around us both. “Come on.”
He hesitates, and the moment stretches between us. What is he waiting for? Doesn’t he understand how much I need to dance with him right now?
Coming up close to him, I feel the pull of his body, like gravity. I press in closer, then closer still. Smoothing a hand against the silken material of his shirt and the hard contours of his torso, I ask, “Pretty please?”
I step back, and his smile broadens. Finally, he reaches out a hand to me, and I take it.
“Okay, Catwoman,” he says. “Let’s dance.”

  1. I had a secret admirer once in junior high. He kept sliding notes into my locker. It was really sweet, and he ended up being one of my good friends. We dated in the sense that we held hands inbetween classes until we decided we liked being friends more. Ahh, the days when junior high was innocent, lol.

  2. What a great premise so thanks for sharing! I hope to see you around my blog


  3. I have been a secret admirer several times.
