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.

“You know there’s no magic wave, right?”
“What the hell are you talking about?”
He shrugs. “You act like going out there and surfing is going to fix it. Like this film company’s going to be the thing that saves you. Same thing you did with Boomerang. Same thing you’re doing with me. Nothing’s going to save you, Adam. Not until you face your shit. When are you doing to do that?”
Whatever spice was missing from Boomerang, Rebound brings it all back to the table.
“Hurry back, lovely,” she says, already sounding sleepy.
“Will do, you exquisite creature of beauty and light.”
Adam, but your brother is a hottie with a capital “hot”.
She looks amazing—I’ve been waiting for this moment for over a week—but seeing her in the kitchen makes me smile.
“I shouldn’t be here, in the back of this car, with this gorgeous stranger. Should definitely not wrap my legs around his and pull him hard against me. Shouldn’t bring my lips down to his so I can feel his sweet warm breath again, draw his tongue into my mouth, feast on his taste, which is honey and whiskey and salt.
But I’m all in, already.”
…it feels like Ali and I are the only people in the world, and I don’t want to let go of that feelings. Then something changes inside me, and fear starts scratching at my chest. Fear that if I walk away she won’t be here when I come back, because life change like that. In a matter of seconds. I know it can.
Alison tilts her head questioningly, responding to my mood.
“I don’t like leaving you,” I hear myself say.
“I get what it’s like to be in on the first stages of something great. In this moment, with all of 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.”
