Book Review: Rebound

Rebound (Boomerang, #2)Author: Noelle August

Publisher: William Morrow Paperbacks
Series: Boomerang # 2

At Boomerang, one night can change everything . . .

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 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?

Some nights call for a Catwoman costume.

“There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.”

But a girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do.

What a better way to prepare for Valentine’s Day than by cuddling up with mushy gushy romance novels, especially ones as charming and fast-paced as this one. The first book in the series grabbed my attention last summer and I was all too eager to get my hands on this one as well. A lot of readers were probably wary of Allison’s character, especially after what she did to Ethan in the first book, but I was actually very excited to read about her backstory and hopefully find some redeeming qualities in her. I thought that I would struggle to like her character, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that it took me no time at all to love her and all her flaws. Her story was just as fun as the story in the first book, and I found myself laughing out loud right from the very first page when we find out that Allison has literally been sewn in to her Catwoman costume for Halloween!

The chemistry between Adam and Allison is quite intriguing. Allison’s father is looking to invest in Adam’s company, Boomerang. However, the two of them do not realize who the other is when they end up passionately entwined before being conveniently interrupted. Watching them wrestle with their feelings with one another while trying to further their entrepreneurial skills will have any reader on edge. I was all for them ending up together. They were put in many compromising situations together but we all know that love always comes out on top! Be sure to pick this one up before Valentine’s Day!
