Welcome to Boomerang.com, 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?
Mia and Ethan wake up in bed together with little memory of the events that led them there. The awkward situation continues as they are forced to share a cab to their first day at work… where they discover they will be co-workers and competitors for a single graduate position at the end of their summer internship. Oh, and they are working for a dating company that prohibits office relationships and expects its interns to ‘trial’ their dating system.
I loved everything about this story – from the writing, which was sharp and humourous, to the characterisation, which was deep and with substance, to the dialogue, which was realistic, to the plot… You get the idea. It’s brilliant – read it!
