Hooking up is only the beginning of the fun in this sexy and irresistible second installment of the thrilling New Adult series, Boomerang. At Boomerang, one night can change everything… Adam Blackwood has it all. At twenty-two, 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 the second book in the Boomerang series. It follows Alison, who is Ethan's ex which we briefly met in the first book. We all were left with a bit of a bitter distaste towards her, but as you get to know her in this book, you can't help but warm up to her. There is lots of forbidden lusty chemistry mixing up in the air. I love me some good work place sexual tension. Adam is a hottie with a body, but there is a darkness behind his eyes that screams tortured BAD BOY! No one knows much about him until a beautiful seductress in a black leather skin tight suit is able to crack his defenses in just one heated-dry-humping night. 

"This feels so dangerous but tempting too. This whole night is out of time,  a bubble removed from the rest of my life. It's exhilarating to feel hidden and unmasked at the same time." -Alison

Fireworks fly between them during their brief tryst, but soon they find out each others true identities. Alison is sent to Boomerang by her father to uncover any and all secrets to see if he should invest his millions in the company. They both try to ignore their physical attraction because there is too much at stake for both of them to mess up now. Alison is dead set on proving herself to her father and Adam will stop at nothing to finally get his dream, but his fate rests in Alison's hands. Let the back and forth tango of lust commence. 

"If we were only bodies, everything would be simple. I'd drag him off into a cabin and bolt the door, finish what we started on Halloween night. But we're not. Our bodies had their moment. Now it's time to use my head." -Alison

There a similar recipe used in this book as in Boomerang. The whole love vs job debacle...fighting the cloud of lust to do the"right" thing...ignoring love and a chance at real happiness for their career and business. Alison and Adam both unknowingly, inch by inch, let their guard down and ultimately fall for each other. Which one is willing to give up their dream, so they can actually be together? Soon it may be too late, when others force their hand before they are ready. What will happen when it all comes to a boil. Will one betray the other? Will there still be room for one another in their lives?

"In this moment, with all these people, I want so desperately for Adam to have everything he wants. I just hope, more than ever, that I don't discover anything that gets in the way of that dream." -Alison

Well I liked a lot of things about this book. The beginning Halloween party scene was hilarious and scorching hot. The connection between Adam and Alison was instant. She pulled things out of him that nobody has come close to doing in years. The build up is steamy and it makes the inevitable joining that much more explosive. The reason that I held back some stars was that the story was just so similar overall to Boomerang. I felt at times like I was having some serious case of deja vu and not the good warm reminiscing kind. I wanted more from the characters I guess. That being said, I did enjoy the book as a whole. If you want a funny, light, sexy book, then this is the read for you my book junkies.
