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.
What a FUNNY book! I love how the story not only involves a romance between two childhood sweethearts but the fact that their families play a HUGE role in the story as well. That includes the Spencer’s 3 children, and the parents of both Spencer and Pooper (I mean Cooper). I don’t think this book would have functioned well without all of the secondary characters involvement and am so glad Heather included them all within the story. It’s the smaller details that always make a difference to me!
That being said, I truly loved this one! Some parts frustrated me (hence the 4 star rating) but overall it’s a well rounded and hilarious novel of second chances and learning to trust! Some of my issues included the distaste that Cooper felt towards Spencer’s children in the beginning of the book (he simply didn’t see himself ever wanting children and was pretty expressive with his feelings on the topic). Thankfully, this “distaste” didn’t last long as Cooper was able to pull his head out of his ass and check himself. Another small issue I had was how DIFFICULT Spencer made it for her and Cooper to finally be together even though it was CLEAR how much the two loved each other. I hate when a heroine acts like a dummy and doesn’t allow herself to be loved like she deserves and this happened a few times within Boomerangers. These issues aside though Heather M. Orgeron has written one heck of a love story here and I am excited to start in one the next standalone romcom she released last year >> Doppelbanger
PS: My absolute FAVORITE character within this book was Savage (aka Kyle). He is Spence’s toddler and stole my heart with his filthy mouth and hilarious ways! That kid deserves a gold medal- I mean he’s a 2 year old that got suspended from preschool! HA I was laughing hysterically every time his tiny character made an appearance.
“For the first time since I was stupid enough to let you go, there is nothing but fear standing in our way. Be brave with me, Spence.”
