    An enjoyable story.

    I've read quite a few of Noelle Adams books before and this one follows the same path. This story is about Julie who has put her life on hold to care for her ailing parents. When she meets Eric in the elevator, she has no idea her life is about to change. Eric is tired of everyone coddling him and driving him crazy. When he notices Julie's calm and caring manner in the elevator he knows he has to get her to agree to help him out. He is unable to take care of himself for 3 months and Julie seems like the perfect person to help him out. The story addresses issues such as commitment and running when things get rough, frustrations, daydreams, and reality. This was a great story. I received and ARC copy from NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion. There are sexual situations and some language.

    Enjoyable read

    This one started off a bit rocky for me but as I read the story I found I really enjoyed these characters and their story. At first glance Julie appears weak and easily taken advantage of. Her sister is a real piece of work and Julie tries so hard to get along with her. After caring for both parents she now finds herself alone, living with her sister and seriously needing something to focus on. After meeting the very gruff and unhappy Eric Vincent, Julie is shocked when he calls her with a job offer. To be his care provider while he recuperates from a severely broken leg. While at first she declines the offer he ups the ante making it impossible to decline. One million dollars for three months of her time. Could she put up with the intense man for 3 months?? Can she keep her bizarre attraction to him under control?? Theirs is an interesting story and one I think you will enjoy. I recommend it.

    fairy tale with growth

    (BTW, there is a minor spoiler for the ending below so stop reading if you don’t want to know. But it is just a tiny thing.) I was surprised at how much I liked this story. Usually these contrived situations (and a Cinderella-esque love story) just don’t play out all that well, but Adams does a good job of giving readers people to like and a plot that works. Eric may seem like he has everything (and he is a bit of a poor-little rich boy) but he does have troubles of his own. And time spent with Julie, with some hard-hitting heart-to-hearts, has him looking at the man he is and why he lives his life the way he does. Those same heart-to-hearts also has Julie looking a little deeper at her own motivations. They are good for each other and grow closer as they are forced to spend a lot of time together. I like that while Eric makes some minor changes, he doesn’t do a beast to prince transformation. Instead, he learns to look a little deeper at his reactions to certain situations. Julie gets to know him as he was – gruffness, spoiled moments, and all – and she likes him anyway. She sees the caring and intelligent man he is as well and that while he has his faults he has his good side too. Julie has the more obvious growth thanks to her time with Eric. She learns to be a little more selfish (in a good way) and to stop avoiding the things she wants. I think that my favorite thing is that after she starts on that path to finding her own life, she continues even with Eric in the picture. She doesn’t let their romance stop her from getting her own apartment (for the first time in years) and figuring out how to be independent after all the time spent taking care of other people. While it is still a little bit of a fairytale, with the rich man falling for his servant, it’s got the growth needed for both and a chance for them to be the support each other needs.

    Adorably Grumpy Romance

    I found Fooling Around to be really sweet, and I enjoyed the chemistry between Eric and Julie. The romance is definitely the focus of Fooling Around, so not much else happens, but I happen to enjoy romance centered books, so I didn't mind that there wasn't a whole lot of other stuff going on. Julie has been taking care of her parents for the last 6 years due to illness, so she hasn't lived for herself in long time, and when both of her parents have passed; her dad has passed already when the book begins, and her mom passes away within the first couple pages of the book, Julie is unsure what to do with her life now that she doesn't have anything holding her back from doing what she wants. As Julie is leaving the hospital, she gets trapped in an elevator with Eric. Eric has just broken his leg and is in need of a wheelchair, and he also in a very grumpy mood about the whole situation. During their brief meeting, Eric decides Julie is exactly the type of person he needs to help him out while he is in a wheelchair, so he offers Julie a crazy amount of money to be his helper for 3 months, but Julie is weary of Eric's offer; especially since he wasn't exactly a nice guy when she first met him, but she knows that it would be foolish not to accept such a generous offer. I liked that Julie doesn't let him walk all over her, and although Julie is quiet and understated, she is strong, and I liked her compassionate nature. I liked Eric too; I liked his gruffness, and I like that he is commanding, and even though he could be a bit of a brat sometimes, I didn't mind it too much, and I found his gruffness sort of adorable. I like when characters fight against the attraction they feel for each other because I enjoy the moment when they can't help themselves any longer. The sex scenes were a bit tame, but I still enjoyed them. Also, the pace is a bit slow, but I was interested in the story the whole time. I'm looking forward to reading more from Noelle Adams!

    Finding Love When You Least Expect

    I really enjoyed this book of finding love when you least expect it. Great chemistry between the characters, and they both grew so much. Julie, has been taken care of both her parents for the last six months, basically has put her life on hold when she meets Eric on the hospital elevator. He is very rich and has been injured, now in a wheelchair for the next three moths. He has chased off many care givers for his rude behavior. He now offers, a million dollars to Julie to help him for the next three months. Wow, what a million dollars won't do. Soon there is a mutual chemistry between the two, but can they put aside their feelings since he is her boss.
