FOOLING AROUND

FOOLING AROUND                   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.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

MY REVIEW:
     Julie Nelson had come from a humble background.  A father and mother that truly loved her and her sister but only gave what they could afford.  Never any false dreams or promises her.  Mom was a no nonsense woman.  Her dad was more the romantic dreamer if you had to pick one.
     But the joy and laughter was there.  Her father would take the family camping at least until their teen years and her sister Marie became too big for her own britches.  So would hear stories of some of her friends staying in fancy hotels and going to fancy places.  She remembers her parents coming up with some sayings about being grateful but after that the trips started falling away.
     While she was off at college for her PhD in History six years ago her mom had suffered several strokes where it caused partial paralysis and speech problems.  Yet, when her dad ended up with pancreatic cancer six months later they could not manage.  Now six years have passed and eight months ago Julie’s father passed away just a week ago her mom suffered another massive stroke leaving her in a coma with DNR orders.  So, she had to sit and watch her mother slowly die like her father.
     On the day she passes she was leaving the hospital and gets stuck in the elevator with an alpha male from hell.  Well, maybe not that bad but rude anyway.  Rich and always used to getting his way even to the point of being a bully.  Yet, it could be he had a cast from thigh to ankle.
     Anyway after they were rescued from the elevator she gets a call from said man Eric Vincent but she doesn’t recognize the name because they never exchanged names.  She ask what he wants.  He says he wants to hire her for 3 months to be his aide/assistant.  Since she was so good at it on the elevator.  She had to think back to remember.  He tells her, the repositioning of his foot on the wheelchair and giving him a bottled water from her purse without him even asking or skipping a beat.
     She says no that her mom had just died that day and they would be having her funeral in the next day or so when he said he would pay her one hundred thousand dollars.  When she said no again a few more times he ended up at one million dollars for three months of working with him.  She was about to say no again but he said think about it he would call back on Friday and then hung up before she could say no.
     By the end of the funeral and her over dramatic sister taking all the glory for caring for her mother when she hardly did a thing.  Or even visited her.  Then when she started planning her life that was the last straw.  She had enough she was taking the job with Eric.  She needed her life back.  That is if Eric didn’t make her bite off her tongue with all his pompous remarks or him barking at her.
     Could she really work with this sexier than hell man?  The man who was rude, loud, and mean?  Or would she end up quitting after the first day?
     I enjoyed this story.  It surprised me with some heartwarming scenes inside of the fluff.  I give it 4 stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.  Follow us at:
