Working with her best friend’s brother at Betty’s Burgers, free-spirited Delia starts to see Jack in a new light. Not only has Jack-the-Jerk turned into a hottie, he’s even acting like a nice guy, who rescues dogs and knows how she likes her coffee. But if Jack is into her, then why is he keeping her a secret? Of course, if her best friend doesn’t approve, Delia could lose the only family she’s ever known.
Seeing Delia in her retro waitress uniform throws Jack’s world out of whack. She’s always been just another pain in the butt little sister…not a datable female. But she’s rockin’ the Pie Princess tiara, and even her hot-pink striped hair is sexy. What’s that about? He needs to get his head on straight, because artsy, funky Delia and her nonconformist ways don’t fit in his safe and ordered world.
I love reading Entangled Teen (Crush) books. They’re fun, adorable, and easy to read. This book sounded very cute and fluffy, so of course I had to request for it. Plus the cover immediately gave me swoony feels.
The plot was fast-paced and humorous. I had a few laughs here and there and loved it. However, there were some parts that just irked me. There’s some drama too, but it just didn’t work for me. Oh, but there were a lot of entertaining moments with dogs. And I love dogs… so I really enjoyed those parts.
The characters were decent and somewhat relatable. I really liked Delia. She’s confident, artistic and not afraid to stand out. She’s definitely my favorite. Not sure how I feel about Jack. He’s guarded, incredibly moody, and a bit of a jerk sometimes. I know he had valid reasons, but I just couldn’t feel for him. Trevor was so funny and I liked him a lot. He kept the story interesting and fun. I didn’t care much for Aidan or Zoe. Actually, Aidan annoyed me. I see why he acted the way he did, but I just couldn’t connect with him.
I liked Delia and Jack together, but I wasn’t crazily swooning over them. I thought their chemistry was a bit lacking and missing all the feels. I just wanted more oomph, more build-up, more intensity… just more FEELS. Nevertheless, I thought the romance was still cute and enjoyable. There were a few sweet moments between them that I really liked. They also brought out the good in each other and I liked that about them too.
Overall, Boomerang Boyfriend by Chris Cannon is a quick, entertaining, and cute read. Even though this isn’t my favorite Entangled Teen (Crush) book and I didn’t love it as much as I thought I would, I still enjoyed it and had fun. I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a nice YA contemporary that can be finished in a day or so.
I received an advanced reader copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
