Rebound by Noelle August Blog Tour ~ #giveaway, #bookreview & #excerpt



REBOUND
—a Boomerang novel—
By Noelle August

At Boomerang, one night can change everything…

Noelle August has taken the New Adult genre by storm, and readers can’t wait to see what chaos, confusion, and connections arise at the Boomerang offices next.

Adam Blackwood has it all. At twenty-three, 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?

My Rebound Review...


Rebound is book 2 in an ongoing series.  I read it as a standalone and didn't feel like it negated my reading experience at all as Noelle August did a great job recapping the gist of what went on in Boomerang.  When I have some free reading time I will read this book to get even a bit more from this boomerang gang.

In Rebound we have Alison Quick who made a colossal mistake in boomerang but is trying to make up for it in Rebound by getting to know Adam Blackwood for her father as her father may invest in Adam's company.

Unbeknownst to each of them they first meet at Halloween party and are instantly attracted to one another and have created some good sexual chemistry but once they find out their true identities they try to cool it but fail at doing so.

They both have secrets but can these secrets destroy them???  The more closely they work together the more they are drawn to one another but both have secrets and something to hide.


As their connection grows, their secrets are edging to come out.  For me I thought with such a buildup that these secrets were going to shock me but I have to admit once they all came out I was left with wanting more.  After the pivotal climatic point where betrayals are exposed and secrets are out, it all of a sudden jumped forward in time with quickly wrapping up all the loose ends. I wanted a bit more rawness after this so I could have felt the angst more at this time but it had a sweet ending even though it was too quickly wrapped up for me.

I liked the idea of the story.  It was sweet with a bit of angst a douchebag villain and a HEA.  At times predictable where others times it was supposed to be a bit more shocking but left me wanting more.  However, because I wanted to see how it was all going to play out it caused me not to be able to put the book down at times.  I liked all the characters at Boomerang and I will be reading more from this series now that I have read this one.

Excerpt #1, 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.”
