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?

I am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction.
This is a very well written feel good story. The whole idea is that Mia and Ethan have a one-night stand but wind working together, each an intern at Boomerang -- a dating service. There is only one permanent position though. The story is about all of the various blockages and obstacles, not so much about the conflict between the two. I like that August did a reasonable job developing the characters the main characters. She came up a little short in developing the supporting players if she intends to build on them in following works. This is nothing that cannot be overcome.
The narrators Wallace and Eiden do a solid good job. The novel is written alternating chapter perspective. This is becoming more common these days and each chapter opens with a question, more like a riddle.
If you are looking for a sultry novel, this is not it. It's packed with eccentricities and subtle humor. I reiterate, feel good. I recommend it as a read and I will read the next one in the series.
I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
This is a fun, stress free novel that is entertaining and worth the credit! Cute characters, good story. Enjoyable!
This was my first book by Noelle August and I thought it was a very funny, and cute love story between Ethan and Mia. They were the perfect couple with some competition thrown into the story which made it even more interesting to listen to. I kept laughing at the dates they had to endure for their internship that my husband kept looking at me like I was crazy. I would recommend this if you like to read fun-loving romance stories. it's worth the credit. Only suggestion I have is there could've been a lot more smexy love scenes between Ethan & Mia. You knew the chemistry was there it just wasn't played up more in terms of the sex between the two. I will be getting the next book in the Boomerang series and can't wait to see what is next.
Loved the writing and the narration. This story was fresh, sweet, and witty.
Enjoyed every minute. Can't wait to dive into the sequel.
