What is the Book About?

Hooking up is only the beginning of the fun in this sexy and irresistible second installment of the thrilling New Adult series, Boomerang.

At Boomerang, one night can change everything…

Adam Blackwood has it all. At twenty-two, 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 very 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?

What Did I Think of Rebound?

We were introduced to Adam and Alison in the first book in the series, Boomerang. From it, we know that Adam is the president/CEO of Boomerang (internet dating website), a multimillionaire already and Alison is Ethan's ex-girlfriend. Even without knowing previously, I had a feeling that Adam and Alison would end up together next. 

The two characters are well rounded, each with their own list of faults and assets. I have to admit, I was not so certain on how I would like Alison. I was concerned because I know she came off snobby and a drinker in the first book. What we learn in the second is there is so much more to her. She has been hurting and uses alcohol to appease her hurt. 

Adam has his own secret, one he does not want revealed and it is used against him towards the end of the book. While I do not want to reveal the secret (read the book to find out!), as readers we can really see how the secret has shaped Adam's life during the years after it. 

Together, their chemistry is amazing--they seem to balance out each other so well and bring out the best in each other. Which, as partners, it is something we all hope to have in our relationship. 

I appreciated the chemistry and that their relationship that really builds over the course of the novel. The pace of Rebound is fantastic--it is easy to get lost in it as the story progresses with enough interest to keep a reader hooked into it.

One Last Impression:

Rebound is a great follow up to Boomerang and I am looking forward to seeing who finds their HEA next. 


  1. I've been a secret admirer in a pathetic, puppy love sense. I never acted on it (and I'm glad I didn't!).

  2. When I was in high school I had the biggest crush on a guy, but I never acted on it. Things turned out okay so I am pretty sure I made the right decision too. :)
