ARC from Netgalley for an honest review...So, I normally like to get my ARC reviews out before the release...but oops >_<

Delia has been best friends with Zoe for forever. With both parents constantly working odd hours she has practically grown up at Zoe's house, making Zoe's family basically her family. That is, until suddenly, Zoe's jerky older brother Jack isn't so jerky. Boomerang Boyfriend uses the I-like-my-best-friend's-brother trope...and beats it with a stick. That's it, that's literally

(I received an advance copy of this book for free. Thanks to Entangled Publishing, LLC and NetGalley.)

This was a YA contemporary romance, between a girl and her best friends brother.

Delia was quite a sparkly character, and I liked her unique sense of style. Jack was a little rougher around the edges, but it was clear that they were attracted to each other.

The storyline in this was about Delia developing feelings for her best friend’s brother Jack after starting to work at the same place as him.

Horror story of the month in only one sentence ... I voluntarily read a romance novel. Would someone please alert a paramedic?

Delia: I have no idea what's going on with Aiden. Never again will I kiss a boy first. Now he's being all weird and mysterious. I think I need to move on and find a new boy. Not that I need a male in my life to make it complete or anything. Maybe if I paint some more it'll help. Ugh! There's Zoe's brother, Jack. Why is he always such a jerk?

Jack: Ever since Dad and Grand

Thank you, Entangled Teen (Crush)

I try not to get mad at books, but I have to say I’m pretty mad at this one, because I was so close to finding a new book boyfriend and he practically got ripped out of my hands last minute.

Like I mentioned in my last review of an Entangled Teen (Crush) title, I can often count on them to bring me sweet and cute YA romance stories. This started out like that. Boomerang Boyfriend attracted my attention with the “f

This is third in a series and the characters of this are setup in the second book. I highly recommend reading at least that one first.

It has been nearly a month since I finished this and I wish I had reviewed it sooner. I'll relate what I remember I was going to talk about in a review, but I've probably forgotten some. The primary thing I recall is that it seems that Cannon doesn't do as well with stories that have characters from another book. The characters aren't as good a fit for the story a
I'm a huge fan of the sibling/friend of the BFF and this one sounded like a bit of fun fluff.

I liked Delia well enough. I liked her artistic side and that she was up to try anything and that she wanted to stand out. Zoe was a bit annoying and I still don't know how to feel about Jack.

Plot wise, it was a lot of push and pull and a lot of tell and not show. I wasn't a fan of Alden's secret being a plot point for the drama, especially considering how hard it is in real life. I especially didn't l

Gah! I loved this book so much. It is exactly the kind of book I like to read. I loved watching Jack and Delia struggle with the feelings they start feeling toward each other. I loved watching Delia slowly begin to realize that maybe Jack wasn't such a jerk after all. Chris Cannon did an excellent job showing Jack's flaws and inner struggles with the death of his father and grandfather. His reaction felt realistic and broke my heart a little bit. I just wanted so badly for him to let Delia into ...more
Three and a half stars.

I have to admit, I misread the blurb on NetGalley when I requested this book and thought, for some reason, that Delia was best friends with Jack's brother not his sister!

Anyhoo, Delia has been best friends with Zoe for ever and spends probably more time at Zoe and Jack's house than her own. Delia's parents work anti-social shifts and appear to be a bit switched-off, they don't remember to buy food and sometimes it seems as though Delia is the adult taking care of her feckl
I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher. This in no way impacted on my view.

In Boomerang Boyfriend, we meet Delia and Jack, as they are working together at the local burger joint. Jack is the brother of Delia's best friend, Zoe, and has always treated her as something like another sister, so she knows he would never go for her, and she would never have wanted him to, but with them being forced to work together, he's starting to grow on her, and soon the attraction becomes a bit too

I received a digital ARC of this book in exchange of an honest review.

So this book is a YA fluffy-romance contemporary. Recently I have been craving for some easy-read books so I was thrilled when I saw an email with a copy if this!

This book is about Delia, a highschool student who has a bestfriend, Zoe, that has a hot and gorgeous brother, Jack. Delia and Zoe were bestfriends since they were kids, but she weren't very much fond of Jack because she sees him as a jerk and Jack, on the other han
Unfortunately this book was just meh.. there was a force of conflict, also a weird way on how the problem was solved between the couple. I found with less than 30% left to go in the book it started to keep pieces of information and rush through to the end and for that reason two stars were taken off.
Delia is Jack's sisters best friend. She is always at Jacks house, and it feels like she is almost like family. He sees her as an annoying younger sister figure and has never thought of her as anything more. That is until she ends up getting a job at his work place, and they end up taking some art classes together. When his sister isn't by Delia side, he begins to notice her as more than an annoyance.

I really wanted to love this book. It sounded very cute and adorable. And honestly, who doesn't love a fluffy little contemporary? Plus, that cover just makes my heart all fuzzy. But there was just some things I couldn't look past and it kind of hindered my enjoyment of this book.

I think for starters, my version of this book was formatted very po

What a fun summer read. Fast and full of enough mischief of a couple who were supposed to hate each other.
You see Delia Desmond’s parents were always working. And since Zoe Cain and she have been best friends since Kindergarten she just always ended up at Zoe’s house. The Cain’s were the family she never had. She suffered the loss of Zoe and Jack’s, Zoe’s old brother, father and grandfather’s death when they were killed in a car accident as hard as they did. Although if you heard Jack tell it t
Kristi Housman Confessions of a YA Reader
Most books from Entangled Teen (Crush) are cute reads and this was no exception. They're fun and easy to read.  A perfect choice for me to read between fantasies or more serious books.

Delia is a bit annoying at times, but I love that she's cool with standing out.  She has pink streaks in her hair and does weird things with make-up.  She's artsy and isn't really afraid to be herself.  I loved that about her.  Her family life isn't great, but she makes the best out of it.

Jack is kind of an ass.  B

Boomerang Boyfriend is the third book in the Boyfriend Chronicles. It is a complete standalone and can be read without having read the first two books. It might help to read the second book, but only so you can place the characters that reappear and the places. Other than that it’s no problem to get in the story. It’s an easy YA read with characters in highschool. If this is your preference I totally recommend reading the boyfriend chronicles from s
This book was just what I needed. After having a longer reading reak due to writing my master thesis it was kind of hard for me to get back into my reading habits. But I can almost trust my beloved YA contemporary (summer) romances to get me out of those.

I actually thought this book would take place rather in the summer months than fall and winter. But it kind of fit to today's cloudy weather which is why this cute love story still warmed up my heart and gave me summer vibes! :)

I read this book as an ARC From NetGalley

Probably closer to 2.5*, but this book was just too cheesy. then again, I knew it was going to be, but everything about it is downright predictable and cliche. It's a case of instalove, except Deliah and Jack have known each other their entire lives. The writing was very TELL, not SHOW, which I am against, and they just said things no normal teenager would. Also, was jack the older brother or twin brother of Zoe? And i get that zoe and deliah are bffs, b

The pairing of Jack and Delilah totally took me by surprise. We saw them fight like cats and dogs in Zoe's book, but in this one, we see it's because they actually share a lot in common. Boomerang Boyfriend let us see a whole other side to their personalities that was really fun. I really loved seeing how similar their worlds were, and yet how vastly different they handled their life's twists and turns. The twist in this book took me totally by surprise, which is a big feat.

So this was about Delia who's falls for her best friend brother. They hated each other for years but when she starts working with him it soon seems like they might just like each other. I thought the characters were okay, I just felt as if it happened so quickly. One minute they hate each other and the next all they can think about is the other person. Its dual POV between Delia and Jack, It wasn't really much depth or character development in
I was given a free copy in exchange for an honest review, thanks to Entagled Publishing.

Aww this was a really cute read! Loved it! Even though I wanted to punch Jack-the-jerk in the face too many times to count. He was really annoying and a jerk some times. Glad he came to his senses in the end.
Delia and Jack were really cute together. And I really liked Delia.

Boomerang Boyfriend by Chris Cannon is a cute YA romance, but not one of my favorites. I did not dislike this book, but I just didn't feel the chemistry between the main characters, as I have in other Entangled Teen Crush books.
I found this book to be a quick read, and recommend it to people who enjoy YA romance books.

This review is based on the ARC provided by the author and/or the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.
Sweet romance, principles, and strength of character despite the pain it brings all come together in this heart-warming young adult story.

Delia is free-spirited, loves art, practically lives with her best friend, Zoe, and has no time for Zoe's orderly and annoying brother, Jack. But when Delia and Jack-the-jerk start working together, something shifts between them. Too bad there's Aidan, Delia's crush, waiting in the sidelines with a secret that threatens not only Delia's relationship with Jack,

This is a story about realizing that others change and you do too…it’s a story about growing up and making decisions you never thought you would. If you enjoy contemporary young adult, this may be a good book for you. It was a quick read with some fun characters that I think young adults will really enjoy it. So if YA is your thing, I think that you should definitely give this author a go…check out this series for fun and romantic reads!

Boomerang Boyfriend is about Delia, who has been best friends with Zoe since they were kids. With her parents constantly working odd hours all the time Delia was raised at Zoe's house. Well, at least until Zoe's douche of an older brother Jack suddenly becomes not so douche-ey.

I really thought I was going to enjoy this book. The synopsis sounded fun, I love the "girl falling for her best friend’s brother" trope. This sounded like one of the fluffy books I enjoy reading when I need to relax or get out of a reading slump, but it ended up not being very good.

First, the writing is too wordy, and most of the story was telling not showing. It also felt very rushed. The story kept jumping from scene to scene, which co
"Boomerang Boyfriend" was overall a cute YA romance, but it felt a little full of drama at every turn with everything a bit more stretched out than it needed to be. We follow Delia and Jack in alternating points-of-view.

Since they have been hanging out all the time since she was little, she has known Jack forever- and he fi ...more

“I took care of the next guy in line while I checked out the girl who was boxing up a pecan pie and decorating it with some sort of fancy ribbon. Watching her wouldn’t be a hardship. She made the retro waitress uniform look good. If she looked as good from the front as she did from the back, maybe I would ask her out.
She turned around and handed the box to the customer at the counter and my world turned sideways. It was Delia. My little sister’s annoying best friend. The girl who was practically a member of my family. When had she become hot? I blinked, hoping maybe I’d seen wrong. Nope. Same blonde hair with hot pink stripes, which I’d always thought was stupid. Now, wearing the Pie Princess tiara and some sort of glittery lip gloss she looked wild and kind of sexy. And that was just wrong.”
