Fooling Around

Fooling Around

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.

My Review:
I was mixed about this book. Overall I liked it and was going to give a higher rating but the more I thought about it the more I wasn’t too happy with it.

The good: It was well written, flowed very well, not many (if any) typos or weird passages. The plot was engaging and the characters relate-able. The characters were well-developed and grew emotionally during the book.

The bad: At some point near the end I started to get annoyed with the characters. Their lack of communication was annoying – always assuming (and you know what is said if you assume) the other emotions. While logically I know that this furthers the plot I started to to get irritated and wanted to yell at the characters.

The ugly: There was a MAJOR plot line that was not closed. Granted I read an advanced-reader copy so this may have been fixed but it’s bugging me none-the-less. This could be easily fixed with a second epilogue (don’t judge, the author can do what she wants – I’ve see in before and it was awesome). I don’t believe that this plot line was intentionally left open in order to make this story a cliff-hanger – it just wasn’t complete.

Overall thoughts: I enjoyed the book. It was a quick, easy read. Enjoyable with bits of steam to make it more fun 3.5 stars

I received this book free from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
