Rebound: Review

From Goodreads:
Hooking up is only the beginning of the fun in this sexy and irresistible second installment of the thrilling New Adult series, Boomerang.

Adam Blackwood has it all. At twenty-two, he’s fabulously wealthy, Ryan Gosling-hot and at the top of the heap in the business world. His life is perfect, until a scandal from his past resurfaces and knocks the tech wunderkind down, throwing his company, Boomerang, a hook-up site for millennials, into chaos.

Three years ago, Adam married his high school love—and then lost her in a tragic accident. Now, the heartbreak and guilt he’s tried to bury with work and women begins to take over his life.

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. She’s got one chance to prove to her father that she deserves a place in his empire by grabbing control of Boomerang and taking Adam down.

But as Alison moves in on him, armed with a cadre of lawyers and accountants, she discovers there’s much more to Adam and Boomerang than meets the eye. Will earning her father’s approval come at the price of losing her first real love? It appears so, unless Adam can forgive her for wrecking his life and trying to steal his livelihood. But Alison hopes that old adage is right. Maybe love can conquer all.

My Review:
I just loved reading this book! I loved the continuation of this book from the last one, like the detail of how Alison liked cinnamon on her drinks, and these characters again, and knowing that we'll be seeing them a 3rd and final time, yeah.

For me, Adam reminded me of another Adam, from the Gaming the System series by Brenna Aubrey, because they are both young, successful runners of companies that they'd started, though they have different companies! And I almost put they both like Mia's, but nope, the Mia in this book, is with this Adam's new girl's ex!

So one thing that this book dealt with, was Adam's wife's death. Most of the time, it's little things, memories, until Adam tells her the whole story, which was pretty sad! I was imagining something like that. And then her dad has to try and use that against Adam!

In this book, we got while Alison cheated on Ethan. Well, started on that path. She didn't go all the way, but then Ethan walked in. So not the best situation to be dealing with, but her dad, yeah, what a royal asshole, because he's the reason why! Which, given what he does to Adam, makes me really glad for the ending!

I just enjoyed this book so much, I'm so glad that I was able to read it, and so close to Boomerang, and I can't wait for Bounce!

NOELLE AUGUST is an anagram for Veronica Rossi and Lorin Oberweger. Just kidding, it’s a pen name!

VERONICA ROSSI is the author of the New York Times Best-selling UNDER THE NEVER SKY trilogy for young adults. The books are available in more than thirty countries and the film rights have been optioned by Warner Bros.

Veronica completed undergraduate studies at UCLA and lives in Northern California with her husband and two sons. She is fond of dresses with pockets, fluffy dogs, and cheese and chocolate — but not together.

LORIN OBERWEGER began her storytelling career by captivating her first-grade class with tales of her summers on a kibbutz in Israel.

Lorin had never been to Israel.

While teacher/parent night put an end to her first experiments in fiction, she’d already caught the bug and eventually made a career of all things story.

As a long-time independent editor and story development guru, Lorin’s client successes range from small press publications to major bestselling novels. She’s an award-winning author and has also worked behind the scenes as a ghostwriter on a variety of projects. Her work has received starred Kirkus reviews and glowing mentions in The New York Times.

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.
