    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.

    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.

    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.

    3.5 stars--Fooling Around by Noelle Adams

    3.5 stars---FOOLING AROUND by Noelle Adams is a stand alone, contemporary adult, romance story line focusing on former pro-football player/turned video game entrepreneur Eric Vincent, and Julie Nelson-a woman who has sacrificed her post graduate studies to spend the last several years looking after her ailing parents. Told from dual third person perspectives (Eric and Julie) FOOLING AROUND focuses on the building relationship between Eric and Julie, one that began in a stalled elevator following the death of Julie’s mother. Eric has been immobilized by a skiing accident that has left our hero dependent upon others to get around, and Julie is ripe for the picking. Attracted to Julie’s compassion and her take no crap attitude from Eric, Eric makes Julie an offer she cannot refuse-One Million dollars for three months in his employ. What ensues are Julie’s attempts to break through Eric’s rough and angry exterior; and Eric’s struggle to keep professional his relationship with Julie. FOOLING AROUND looks at one woman’s struggle to step out of her comfort zone; and one man’s battle with his lack of independence and his inability to fix what is wrong. The world building focuses on recovery, acceptance, and letting go of preconceived notions. Eric is an angry, independent, arrogant, alpha male who fights Julie every step of his recovery; Julie is a woman who knows what she wants but Eric is unwilling to go along. The relationship between Julie and Eric is slow to develop with an expiry date of three months. There is the initial attraction but that soon gives way to our hero’s hot temper, and lack of patience with the people in his life including the woman with whom he is falling in love. Eric has struggled throughout most of his life to prove himself worthy of family and love, and in this, our hero is facing another battle alongside someone he loves. The limited number of $ex scenes are intimate and steamy but I felt the sexual heat is lacking. I did not ‘feel’ the chemistry and desire between our leading couple-Eric’s hot and cold attitude did nothing to energize the situation. Eric’s attempts to push Julie away are met with Julie’s immediate withdrawal and embattled self esteem. There are a number of secondary and supporting characters including Eric’s household staff-Tim (Eric’s driver) and Kristin (Eric’s PA). We are also introduced to Julie’s sister Marie-a woman whose dependence upon her own sister leaves something to be desired.; and Maddy-a young child struggling with issues of her own. FOOLING AROUND is an enjoyable read with interesting characters, and a familiar premise. If you like brooding, billionaire alpha men with attitude to spare, then check out FOOLING AROUND by Noelle Adams.
