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.

Very rarely does a book like this come around for review and I am so glad for the opportunity to read Boomerangers. Heather Orgeron had me hooked with the description of what a boomeranger was in the blurb and did not disappoint with the rest of her story.
Right off the bat we start with a woman that isn't perfect, chose a loser or two in her past, but the thing is, they left her with tokens to remember them by. Kids. Now Spencer finds herself as a single mother moving back to her childhood home when her came crashing down on her. She is a smart girl, however the small town she's moving to isn't necessarily looking someone in the sex therapy field right now.
All those years ago, Spencer lived next door to and fell in love with Cooper when they were teens. An unfortunate misunderstanding, as always, led to the relationships demise. While they've seen each other over the years in passing, they lived thier lives separately. Until now. Like Spencer, Cooper is back home after his divorce and looking to take over his father's law firm. This isn't where he pictured himself at thirty three, well he did picture himself with Spencer, however she was with him, the mother of his children, not another guys.
I absolutely loved Spencer's personality. She was a "yeah I did that, you don't like it? Too bad." type of gal. Even with the failed relationships in her past, she was a strong woman moving forward. She didn't need those guys, all she needed were her three beautiful boys. Also, because of her job, Spencer isn't afraid of talking about or having sex. She was almost like the guy, which was a breath of fresh air when reading.
Now Cooper on the other hand, while I liked him instantly, I didn't love him. He came home, saw Spencer and had a chip on his shoulder about how she lived her life. Throwing judgement at her instantly. He knew nothing about the woman that stood in front of him. She isn't seventeen anymore, she's been out in the world living, trying to move on from him. Just as he had been with her and he's got an ex-wife to show he didn't move on successfully either.
Once these two knuckleheads start to clear the air of the past, the hilarity ensues. I'm a fan of the funny book that makes you actually laugh out loud and Boomerangers did that more than once. Heather Orgeron gives her readers a handful of funny characters, a small town and a small child to make things that much more interesting.
The book is well written from dual points of view and I really enjoyed the story of Spencer and Cooper, the good, the bad and the ugly of it. Not everyday was a party for these two, but they sure did make the most of what they came to the table with. Boomerangers reads as a standalone with a short epilogue to ring a few more laughs out of you before it's all said and done.
Heather M. Orgeron is a Cajun girl with a big heart and a passion for romance. She married her high school sweetheart two months after graduation and her life has been a fairytale ever since. She’s the queen of her castle, reigning over five sons and one bossy little princess who has made it her mission in life to steal her Momma’s throne. When she’s not writing, you will find her hidden beneath mounds of laundry and piles of dirty dishes or locked in her tower(aka the bathroom) soaking in the tub with a good book. She’s always been an avid reader and has recently discovered a love for cultivating romantic stories of her own.
