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.

Fooling Around is about a girl who sacrifices so much of herself to take care of her sick parents for six years. She finds herself at the hospital, mom just passed and her dad already gone,she is at a loss as to what to do next. In comes Eric, arrogant, grumpy and temporarily wheelchair bound due to a skiing accident. He's not handling the confinement so well with all the hovering of his nurse and PA when he gets stuck in an elevator with Julie. In just the short minutes they are stuck, she has managed to handle his moods and comfort so well that he has his PA hunt her down to offer her a job as his caretaker until he's back on his feet. With the money Eric offers her, she can't refuse.
This is where the story gets a bit predictable. He falls in love with the unassuming girl he never would have looked twice at and she falls hard to tame his arrogance and brings happiness to his life he didn't realize he was missing. Throw in a daughter who may have a terminal illness and you get a sweet, slightly emotional story that warms your heart. This was a low angst, sweet romance book.

Love brings two people together
A woman has given up her life to help her parents as they each pass away. Six years of existing for them has left her without much motivation to move on with her life. She receives an odd proposal, too good to be true, and with a desire to find her way, she accepts. As Julie and Eric spend more time together, they find that there is more to their lives. They help each other look at life a different way. I could not stop reading this story and highly 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.
