Fooling Around by Noelle Adams
Publication Date: July 11, 2016
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.
My Rating: 3 stars
Julie Nelson has dedicated 6 years of her life taking care of her parents. After the death of her mother she becomes lost – after 6 years of taking care of her parents she doesn’t know how to go back to real life. Eric Vincent enters as the perfect transition – he needs a nurse for 3 months who will be by his side to anticipate his every desire, and will devote every waking second to his comfort. Eric offers Julie a proposition which she can’t refuse.
I am quite fond of Noelle Adam’s, her books are usually light and fun to read. This was an alright read. Julie started out interesting, but later on become a broken record. Eric was the usual cranky billionaire. Their relationship progressed a bit fast for my liking. Eric’s daughter, Maddie, was a nice addition. I did, however, feel that we didn’t get much closure.
It was a light read, definitely something I’d pick up to relax myself.
