Synopsis:

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?

Review:

I am so glad that I signed up for this blog tour! This book was effin hilarious, fun, and sexy all wrapped into a fantastically unexpected package. I was immediately intrigued by the promising blurb and I soon as I began reading I was hooked from the very first "Oh crap, where are my panties?" line. The title is so appropriate for Mia and Ethan's back and forth emotions. One minute they are throwing the big 'eff you!' to the job and competition, then the next minute they become determined to stay professional. This  emotional boomerang was giving me whiplash, but I insta-loved the story and the characters. Even the whole Boomerang online dating site...wait not so much dating, but "hook-up/friendly booty call" site, was interesting and funny as hell. The dialogue was amazing and witty, and I was seriously wiping tears of laughter from my face. I kid you not.

"Sex--good sex, anyway--makes my hair go insane. Like giant mushroom cloud insane. Right now, it's at about Defcon Three, which suggests some vigorous making out but not much more." -Mia

The story starts off with Mia in bed naked with a stranger, hungover and in desperate need to not only find her panties but any spark of memory as to what happened the night before. (You won't ever guess where her panties ended up.) Ethan, said hunky stranger, was also at a loss of recollecting last nights evident naked debauchery they shared. Mia was sure they didn't go all the way and Ethan, being the cocky man he is, thinks they definitely went all the way (more than once). Their banter was a hoot. They were both running late for their first day at work and they end up sharing a cab. As if their sexy drunken night wasn't wild enough, they both end up in the same office. Apparently they went from memory-lacking-one-night-stand, to interns competing against each other for a job. *Cue sinister music* dun...dun...DUN! So begins the back and forth emotional warfare, because even though they fight to remember what happened that night, they both genuinely like each other and now they have to compete against one another. Oh, and if that weren't enough sexual and emotional struggle, there is also the added no-office-dating rule thrown in there too.

"You know what it is," I say realizing it myself. "It's the whole situation. I don't want to have to fight for anything. I don't want to have to prove I'm worth breaking the rules for, you know? I want someone who wants just me, without question. And I want to want him back. And just go for it." -Mia

I loved that not only are you along to find out what happens between them and the conclusion of who gets the job in the end, you also get the flashes of memories as they both begin to remember bits and pieces of their sexy night together. You also get a bit of angst thrown in there when the boss at Boomerang requires them to set up online profiles and go on undercover dates...you know, to get the "full experience" of what the brand is. They have to go on these dates in the same restaurant with just a few tables as a barrier between them...let the jealousy laced tension commence.

"She looks delicate--and that makes me want to wrap myself around her.
Or watch her share a pitcher of sangria with some other dude.
Fuck. These dates are going to kill me." -Ethan

Despite the crazy whirlwind they go through--fighting, then not fighting their attraction to each other, then just going back to being professional--they learn a lot about each other. They both start to care for each other beyond the job and every other crazy thing going on in the background. After they finally piece together what happened that night, will it be enough to push them over that line they have been teetering on? Will both of their egos keep them from giving in? When it all comes to the forefront, will their feelings be enough to survive the impending conflict?

"Will I be telling stories about him? Am I in love with him? I don't know. I only know I want to see him, just to sit with him, breathe the same air. Okay, maybe attack him like an expensive buffet."   -Mia  

Well, if you haven't been convinced enough yet to pick up this amazing well written book, let me just say that it really left a very lasting impression on me. I still have a goofy grin on my face as I write this review. The characters were so damn lovable, and the story had everything needed to keep you reading and leave you wanting for more. I am so excited that this is a series, and I anxiously await the other books in it. I haven't read any other books from these authors, but I will definitely be doing some light stalking on Goodreads to see what other treasures I might discover. I recommend you immediately get your one-click on for this one.
