Playing the occasional club gig just isn’t cutting it for twenty-two-year-old cellist Skyler Canby, who’s trying to support herself and her mother back home in Kentucky. Persuaded by her best friend Beth to accompany her on an audition for the first feature film launched by Blackwood Entertainment, she figures why not? Beth’s a shoe-in for the lead, but maybe Skyler’s newly dyed pink hair will help her stand out enough to score a small speaking part.
Never in her wildest dreams does Skyler imagine she’ll land the lead role or that she’ll have her shoes knocked off her feet by the kiss her audition partner, Grey Blackwood, plants on her—a kiss that feels very real and not at all “acted. ”
After throwing a party that causes thousands of dollars of damage to his older brother’s home, reckless musician Grey Blackwood gets roped into working off his debt on the set of his CEO brother’s newest project. Grey spends his days fetching coffee and doing odd jobs around the studio, but he lives for nights when he performs with his band. He knows if he can stay focused, success as a singer is just around the corner. But that’s tough with a distracting pink-haired girl occupying his every waking thought.
Skyler and Grey have every reason to resist each other. But, like a song neither of them can get out of their minds, they have no choice but to go where the music takes them.
The Boomerang series has been one that I have been wanting to read for a long time. And the plot summary of Bounce appealed to me the most out of all three books so far, so I decided, why not? Let’s start with number Bounce. And I am so glad that I did. Bounce was such a fun read and honestly, it was a giant “awh” book. That is the only way I know how to describe it. Bounce made me say “awh” so many times while reading it. If you are looking for a cute book that will put a perma smile on your face, read Bounce.
I like that so many of the characters from the series play such large roles in Bounce. That will be great fun for fans that have read the entire series, but it was also great for me as a first time reader because I felt like I got to know them, even thought I hadn’t read their stories yet. I loved Skyler. She was interesting and watching her with Grey was a giant Awh all the time. Skyler needs money and she is roped into auditioning for a role in a movie with her actor friend Beth. Guess what? Skyler gets the role and her life turns into a big whirlwind adventure after that. With lots of ups and downs and luckily, lots of Grey.
Grey just melted my heart. I loved that he was positively smitten with Skyler from the very start. It was a refreshingly new take on new adult. Even though Grey was far from innocent, his adorable fascination with Skyler seemed cute and innocent to me. I was rooting for him from the very first scene. I can’t get enough of him. This was a cuter new adult story than I was expecting, and it turns out that I loved that so much about Bounce. Yes, there are road bumps and obstacles and some not so light topics touched on in the book, but still the overall feeling was fun, flirty and so utterly adorable. Fans of the Boomerang series will fall in love with Grey. And fans that are new to the series should start with Bounce. I was really happy that I did!Get ready to swoon when you meet Grey. @BookBriefs #review Bounce by @Noelle_August @Morrow_PB & you can win the whole series! #Giveaway Click To Tweet
