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.
Noelle August (authors Veronica Rossi and Lorin Oberweger) did an amazing job in closing out their "Boomerang" series, keeping the humor, romance and overall sweetness of all the characters front and center.
Each book in the series, able to be read as standalones, build on characters that are endearing, sweet and pretty low drama. Noelle August doesn't rely on shock and awe to tell the story. Rather each character brings their own personality to each page and keeps you engaged from beginning to end.
In "Bounce," its time for Skyler to get her story. Mia and Beth's best friend, Skyler is at a crossroads. She needs to earn money but can't do it exactly as she wants, playing her cello. With the coaxing of her best friend Beth, Skyler is auditioning for a part in a film produced by Mia's employer, Adam Blackwood.
At this audition, Skyler meets Grey Blackwood, the restless and confused brother of Adam. Sparks fly when these two sit down to read some lines, leading to interesting conversations, beautiful pillow talk and a friendship that has the potential to turn to more.
"Bounce" touches on a few important topics today such as family, trust, friendship and love. I read this book in one sitting, totally engaged and cheering for Sklyer and Grey to get a Happily Ever After they both so rightfully deserve.
