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.
Heather M. Orgeron’s Boomerangers is a hoot! From the beginning of the book till the end, and I mean to the very end, this book has you laughing until you cry. A second chance romance with well crafted characters, Ms. Orgeron has written a truly astounding story that has all the feels as well as the humor.
Spencer and Cooper grew up next door to each other and after going their separate way have returned to their hometown and each others lives. Only Spencer brings a little something extra with her, 3 boys. Cooper doesn’t want kids, so that leads them to a “friends with benefits/no strings” type of arrangement.
However, as both Spencer and Cooper come to realize, that arrangement can only work for so long. Because that sticky little emotion, love, gets in the way. Although they eventually do realize that, the story of how they get to their HEA is sexy, humorous, emotional, and very gratifying.
Reading how Cooper comes to love Spencer AGAIN (STILL?) and how his feelings about kids and his love for Spencer’s boys comes out is heartwarming. His interaction with Kyle is hilarious!
I felt like I could relate to all the characters in this book. Living in the South, I saw traits of people I know IRL in the characters of this book. Some of the traditions like the craw-fish boil, Taco Tuesday, and Saints (Who Dat!) football are things that I’ve participated in. So, in some way, I knew exactly the environment that Ms. Orgeron had written so well.
Ms. Orgeron has definitely put the work in on this book, and it shows. All the characters are well thought out, the story line moves at a “keep you engaged” pace, and well, the book is just too damn funny to put down.
