Boomerangers [boo-muh-rang-ers] noun, informal: an adult that moves back home to live with a parent after a period of independence.
I love sex. I love the power, the intimacy, the euphoria it brings. Too bad I’m not having any . . . You’d think as New Orleans’ most renowned sex therapist that I’d be swimming in single men. In a way, I am . . . except for the fact that one is in diapers and the other two are drowning in preteen hormones. As a single mother of three, my days are devoted to my clients and my kids, and my nights are spent with Fabio, my trusty vibrator. When my world begins to unravel, I have no choice but to move back home. And when my high school sweetheart comes waltzing back into my life, comedy and chaos ensue.
What can I say? I never said I could pick ’em, but you can bet your ass I know how to fix ’em.
As soon as the ink dried on my divorce papers, I made myself a solemn vow: I was done with relationships. Moving home to take over my father’s firm was the plan, until Spencer decided to return, along with three souvenirs from the life she’s lived without me.
I’ve been in love with the girl next door for nearly all of my life; the rest was spent trying to forget her. I’d give almost anything for a second chance with her, but I have no time for distractions—especially the kind that involve diapers, bottles, and eighteen-year commitments.
The problem is, she’s already got me by the balls . . . and I’m beginning to feel the noose tightening around my heart.
You all, I’ve been having a hard time figuring out my feelings towards this book. I like it but at the same time, I kind of don’t. I don’t know if you have ever gotten that horrible feeling but hopefully you understand what I’m talking about. I just wanted to give a little disclaimer that this review will most likely be all over the place. I cross my heart, I’m going to do my best to express my feelings.
I’m a fan of Boomerangers theme. Second chance romances make the best romance books—for me, at least—and that’s not the only amazing thing about this book. Add to the mix that Cooper and Spencer used to be friends since the were in diapers and as they grew up their feelings for each other became stronger but then life happened—more like, dumbass Cooper happened—so they broke up and now three kids and one divorce later, fate worked its magic and crossed their paths again and you get the most awesomesauce story in the history of second romances. I’m telling you, Heather M. Orgeron just got herself a new fan.
Truth be told, I’m not a huge fan of Cooper. At the begging of the book he seems a bit too immature and jerk-ish for my liking. I hated that he always got mad at Spencer for having three kids when he was the one that broke things off between them because supposedly he wanted them to live their lives and meet new people in order to see if they were really made for each other and whatnot—which is a good idea, I think—but then he goes and gets mad and I’m just like, it was all his idea! He let her go and she moved on with her life so DEAL WITH IT, COOPER. In case my feelings towards Cooper weren’t clear enough, I wanted to slap him for a huge chunk of the book.
However, those violent thoughts started fading away once I started noticing that he was actually growing up and he was starting to love her children. Cooper is actually a great father, who would have thought?! Plus, he’s pretty funny too. There’s a probability that he charmed me with his hilariousness.
I think with all my heart that most of you will love this book. The story is very real, the characters are very relatable too. It has just the right amount of realness in it.
So go check it out because it has everything, drama, romance, hilariousness—tons of it, one of the funniest books I’ve ever read—and I assure you, you will not be able to put Boomerangers down.
