Fooling Around by Noelle Adams

In this steamy novel from New York Times bestselling author Noelle Adams, a notorious tech mogul makes a mild-mannered woman an offer she can’t refuse. What he gets is a battle for control—and a million-dollar affair.

Eric Vincent isn’t in the habit of asking for help. As the founder of a lucrative sports videogame franchise, he’s accustomed to getting his way and enjoying the fruits of his hard-earned success. Then all his illusions of dominance are shattered by a skiing accident that leaves him hobbled, facing a string of surgeries and months of immobility. The only way he’s going to survive is with someone by his side to anticipate his every desire. Someone who will devote every waking second to his comfort. Someone like Julie Nelson...

Julie’s life revolves around other people: her students, her parents, her sister. But even she has her limits. Julie has zero interest in playing personal assistant to Eric Vincent, a man who’s as arrogant as he is charismatic...until he ups the salary to one million dollars for three months’ work. Soon Julie’s struggling to bite her tongue—and resist the chemistry that draws her to Eric. But after one scorching kiss, Julie decides it’s finally her turn to be selfish. And this time, she’s going to get what she wants.

The synopsis for this story sounds a little contrived, but it didn't really feel that way at all. This is a wonderful romance. A lovely, slow burn. We get to know Julie and Eric as we watch them learn about each other. They challenge each other and each help each other to grow and move out of their comfort zone.

I connected with both Julie and Eric, and as our couple crosses the line from employee/employer to something more, I felt every high and low right along with them. In the end, I was crying happy tears. Great story. I'll be definitely reading more of Ms. Adams' work.

This is a cute story, with some quite teary moments, and a delightful ending.

Julie and Eric meet in the most unexpected way, and strike up a deal that sets up the story perfectly. Julie has been selfless for a very long time, and sees the contract with Eric as her way to set up a better future. But what started as a job becomes more difficult as the connection between them somehow morphs into attraction. As we watch them fight those feelings, they also learn a lot about themselves and eventually about each other. The side characters don't feature a lot, but are used very effectively. This is one of those books where I really wanted it to keep going, as I needed to know more...

Thank you Ms. Adams.

Noelle Adams handwrote her first romance novel in a spiral-bound notebook when she was twelve, and she hasn’t stopped writing since. She loves travel, art, history, and ice cream. After spending far too many years of her life in graduate school, she decided to reorient her priorities and focus on writing contemporary romances. She has lived in eight different states and currently resides in Virginia, where she reads any book she can get her hands on and offers tribute to a very spoiled cocker spaniel.
