Welcome to Boomerang.com, the dating site for the millennial gen, with no-fuss, no-commitment matchups and where the action on the job is steamier than any random hookup

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 coworkers dating. And second, they're now competing for the same job opening in the fall.

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?

The Review: Funny, sexy and romantic, Boomerang is definitely a New Adult novel that you should pick up this summer! 

The story starts with Mia and Ethan who wake up next to each other not remembering a whole lot from what happened the night before. As Mia and Ethan get through that awkward next-morning stage, it’s upon arrival at their new jobs that they realize they are both fighting for the same job, internship’s at Boomerang – a top dating company. It’s there that they realize that their feelings run deeper than they should but they can’t break Boomerang’s number one rule, no dating co-workers. Who will win the job at the end of the internship? But more importantly, will Mia and Ethan find the happiness they both deserve? 

I’m a massive fan of Veronica Rossi’s, so when I heard she was writing a new adult novel under a pen name, I just had to read it. Now I’ve not heard of Lorin Oberweger so this was my first venture into some of her work, but Boomerang really popped and I thought that Veronica and Lorin made a fantastic writing team. 

I absolutely fell in love this this story. It was fun, very quirky and very sexy. Within the first few chapters you just know it’s going to be an entertaining read because of the fun dialogue from both Mia and Ethan. I thought their dual narratives worked perfectly together and really added to the insensitivity of the story. And the plot of the story was a lot of fun, reading these two pitted against each other while trying to hide their attraction for one another was very entertaining and full of mystery too. 

It’s impossible to not like Mia and Ethan. Noelle August has written two fantastic and lovable characters that really make you root for them. Ethan is completely swoon-worthy and I loved getting in his head and finding out his true feelings. And Mia was just so much fun too.

In all, Boomerang is a fun-loving story, one full of heat and angst. Overall, a great read and I cannot wait for Adam’s story. 
About Noelle August: NOELLE AUGUST is an anagram for Veronica Rossi and Lorin Oberweger. Just kidding, it's a pen name!

VERONICA ROSSI is the author of the New York Times Best-selling UNDER THE NEVER SKY trilogy for young adults. The books are available in more than thirty countries and the film rights have been optioned by Warner Bros. Veronica completed undergraduate studies at UCLA and lives in Northern California with her husband and two sons. She is fond of dresses with pockets, fluffy dogs, and cheese and chocolate -- but not together.

LORIN OBERWEGER began her storytelling career by captivating her first-grade class with tales of her summers on a kibbutz in Israel. Lorin had never been to Israel. While teacher/parent night put an end to her first experiments in fiction, she’d already caught the bug and eventually made a career of all things story. As a long-time independent editor and story development guru, Lorin's client successes range from small press publications to major bestselling novels. She's an award-winning author and has also worked behind the scenes as a ghostwriter on a variety of projects. Her work has received starred Kirkus reviews and glowing mentions in The New York Times. Oh, she did get to see a kibbutz, eventually, and found out she had it pretty much right all along.

Veronica and Lorin met at a writing workshop and just knew they were destined to create awesome things together.
