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?

One Line: A cute and fun read.

What I Loved: I really liked the characters. Mia and Ethan were great on their own, but I also enjoyed their interactions and how they both handled the internship. It was fun watching them fight their attraction to each other too and their little spurts of jealousy were so funny and cute. I really loved Mia, surprisingly, especially her relationship with her parents and grandmother. She was a very confident and open person, as evidenced by her being the subject of many of her mother’s pieces of artwork, which I really appreciated and would’ve loved to have seen illustrated in some way. Ethan was great, too. He was very sweet and caring and I adored his roommates. Mia’s roommates, too.

Left Me Wanting More: I was hoping for more of a progression with their relationship. I’m used to more happening between the two main characters and we really didn’t get much of that here. While it fit with their story and all, I wanted more. The drama wasn’t really all that deep, too. Everything about this book was on the lighter and fluffier side, but in a good way.

Final Verdict: Overall, it was a very cute, fast, and fun read. Even though the ending was a bit predictable, it was still enjoyable. I am definitely looking forward to more from these authors and this series. If you’re looking for a light-hearted, fun read with a decent amount of romance, then you’ll definitely enjoy this book.

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.
