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?
Mia wakes up in an unfamiliar apartment and M.I.A. (haha!) underwear. She doesn’t remember the name of her new friend, or what exactly they got up to last night. Ethan isn’t faring much better, but at least he remembers Mia’s name.
Boomerang opens on an incredibly awkward morning after that just keeps going. Ethan and Mia both have somewhere to be for a new job early in the morning, and share a cab…to the same address. They’re about to be co-interns at Boomerang, a new online dating site just for getting that rebound out of the way. Which is what they both just did last night.
is SO CUTE. It’s NA where the focus is on the storyline and not just sexual encounters – though there are at least two! (And now we know what Perry and Aria
are getting up to…I mean, what?)
It’s mostly a fun, light romance but I shed some tears. I love the rich cast – Mia and Ethan’s families and friends are fully fleshed out characters and more than anything, I loved Mia’s friends/roommates. I love their closeness and was completely envious of their bond.
Boomerang is going to be a great read for the beach or poolside – blame your flushed cheeks on getting too much sun.
(I’m kind of sad that boomerang.com is not an actual tie-in site.)
