It’s been a year since Cohen and Hayleigh’s passionate one night together. They’d promised to meet again in Sydney, Australia in a year. Neither of them is sure the other will actually show up but that doesn’t stop them from hoping.
Cohen doesn’t make the trip from the Outback to Sydney very often but he does make sure to be at the pub where he and Hayleigh met exactly one year ago. His brother Miller is convinced that Cohen has completely lost it and refers to him as a ‘bloody fruit loop.’ Cohen knows he’s probably right, it’s nuts to think that a woman from the U.S. would seriously be thinking about him after all this time.
Cohen’s worries are put at ease when Miller points out that there’s a ‘spunky sheila eyeing him.’ Hayleigh’s returned as promised and they have three days to indulge in all their sexual cravings and get to know each other better.
Cohen and Hayleigh pick up right where they left off but this time they have a little more time to get to know each other better. The sexual attraction between them is still as strong as ever but is that enough to form a real foundation of a relationship?
Hayleigh can’t help but admit to herself that her feelings for Cohen go beyond simple sexual desire, but they live on completely different continents and they have so little time together. Everything about their lives seems to be polar opposites so is there any chance their time together could lead to a happily ever after?
Melissa Lopez’s THE THORN BROTHERS series is off to a good start with its first book, BOOMERANG LOVE. As a reader who’s always romanticized the Australian Outback I love that Ms. Lopez incorporates the lingo and mannerisms of the region. I found myself infinitely curious about Hayleigh and Cohen’s relationship and couldn’t help but wonder how a relationship based on so little time together turns out. Fortunately there should be stories for Miller and Ethan, Cohen’s brothers, coming soon - and I have to confess I’m really looking forward to Miller’s story. He’s so tortured and bitter, I’m infinitely curious about the sheila who can win him over.
