Rebound by Noelle August



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? 


I didn’t think I could but I enjoyed it more than the first!

After reading Boomerang, the first in this series, I was really looking forward to the next in this new adult series. Rebound has more of the same great writing and witty dialogue while giving Adam and Alison their own story. While this can be read as a stand-alone I found reading the first gave me great insight into the main characters who were introduced initially in the first novel. Adam is a multi-millionaire at the tender age of twenty-two and he’s already experienced enough heartache to last a lifetime. Not lacking for companionship, he’s satisfied concentrating on building his company and avoiding his own online dating services. Alison is at Boomerang in a professional capacity. Her father has given her another chance to prove herself as she and her team evaluates his company as a possible investment opportunity. She has to resist the attraction she feels for Adam – she needs to prove to her father that she has the skills to be successful. The evaluation was not all about dollars and sense, however, as the two are drawn closer and closer despite both of them wanting to keep their distance. They both come with baggage and when past decisions affect the deal, you have to trust your own instincts to make the right choice. Would that choice include each other?

They are young and beautiful, rich and successful, but still struggle with family dysfunction and past mistakes. Who can’t relate to that? The author brings all this drama together in a steamy tale that made me alternately laugh and cheer. Cookie putting the evaluation team in the kitchen had me snickering away at the games that go on in the corporate world. Alison’s need for her father’s acceptance is universal and the struggle she has between loyalties to her family and the man she is growing to love is so easy to see and feel. Another great installment in the series and I can’t wait for the next!
