Review, Excerpt + #Giveaway: Rebound by Noelle August

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?

BOUNCE, the last installment in the BOOMERANG series, will be on sale in August 2015!

Alison POV

I give myself to the music and the movement of my body, but over and over again, I’m drawn back to him. And every time, his eyes are on me. Every time, he greets me with that same devastating grin that cuts right to my core.

Finally, I can’t take it anymore. I give in and dance his way, running my mink tail through my fingers. I smile at him, feeling light and relaxed and like no one in the world would dare deny me a thing.

“Dance with me,” I say.

“Is that a question?” he asks, folding his arms across his chest. His biceps bulge beneath the flowing black fabric of his shirt, and his eyes, which seem to be a deep, penetrating gray, regard me in amusement.

“No,” I reply, still swaying as the music flows through me to wrap around us both. “Come on.”

He hesitates, and the moment stretches between us. What is he waiting for? Doesn’t he understand how much I need to dance with him right now?

Coming up close to him, I feel the pull of his body, like gravity. I press in closer, then closer still. Smoothing a hand against the silken material of his shirt and the hard contours of his torso, I ask, “Pretty please?”

I step back, and his smile broadens. Finally, he reaches out a hand to me, and I take it.

“Okay, Catwoman,” he says. “Let’s dance.”


This book was freaking awesome! Exactly what I needed after a horrible day at the office.

Although it had it's heartbreaking moments filled with anguish and gut-wrenching emotion, for the most part if was fun, hilarious and just a brilliant feel good story about love, courage and acceptance.

Ali and Adam were explosive together and their first meeting was smoking. I loved the flirtatious playfulness that brought them together, and even when it seemed there could be nothing more between them, that fun side reared it's head from time to time, especially at the team building, which was when I saw a much deeper connection between them.

I was so in love with these two characters and I rooted for them from the beginning. When it looked like Ali's father was going to steal away their happiness, I wanted to slap him - no wait, that would have been going too easy on him. He deserved to have everything taken away from him, and not only for what he'd done to Ali and Adam but for every despicable thing he'd done to his family over the years. I'm glad he got what he deserved in the end and everyone else, including Ali's mother, were happier for it.

If you are looking for a book that will lift your spirits, make you laugh, and even cry at times, this is a top ten pick!
