Sister's Say: Fun and Flirty Summer Read

The first book in a sensational New Adult trilogy from Noelle August

Welcome to, 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?

In a world, especially a virtual one that we all all live in, with EHarmony and all the many other dating sites (which some of the names for those, come on, they can't be serious!), I am surprised that we haven't seen a huge influx of NA novels dealing with these websites.  It was a great idea and I'm ticked I didn't think of it first!  With the humor that usually surrounds these dating sites (looking at you SNL) you know you are not getting your typical, soul crushing NA.  This one is light, flirty and the perfect summer read!

Boomerang has a whole cast of characters that have their own little quirks that make you quickly fall a little in love with each one of them.  And, since this is a trilogy, I'm hoping to see much more of all my favorite characters especially Baby Ryan Gosling!

Mia and Ethan have instant chemistry that set this book on fire! They meet one night at bar then just "happen" to show up on their first day of their internships at the same place. A place with a strict no dating the co-workers policy.  And the forbidden love sparks start to fly and actually leave a lot of pretty great damage in their wake!  There's some pretty sharp plot twists that keep the story moving and leave you guessing what's going to happen up until the very end.

Veronica Rossi (AKA Noelle August and Lorin Oberweger) bring Veronica's trademark character development to the NA world.  They will make you love these characters just as much as Perry and Aria.  Get ready to fall for Ethan, to want to join Mia's hilarious family, and to covet a workplace like Boomerang! You won't regret picking this one up!
