Book Description:
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?

Holy crap I had so much fun reading this one I can't even begin to tell you how much I loved Mia and Ethan. I completely devoured this story and was sad when it was over. It has been awhile since a book has grabbed me like this one did and refused to let me put it down. One that made me smile, laugh, groan (get your mind out of the gutter!), roll my eyes and most of all have that feel good warm fuzzy feeling we all want to have when reading a really great, really fun contemporary romance.

Noelle August has me hooked on her writing, hook, line, and sinker, if I didn't already know this was a pen name I would have been looking up all of her other work and devouring it. These are the type of reads I need and ones that I crave. 

I can't even begin to tell you how fabulous this was. So gunny at times and heartwarming and of course swoon worthy. Both characters were so lovable and endearing, I couldn't help but love them and want to root for them the whole way through. Their chemistry was pliable. You could fell it in every stolen glance and shy smile they shared and every hot steam filled moment when they were alone.

Pick this one up, you won't be disappointed in the storyline, the characters, or the warm fuzzies you will get from reading it.
