Book Description

For years, Jonathan Damon has buried himself in his scientific research, but now his uncle threatens to pull the funding for his lab unless Jonathan makes strides toward marriage and family. So he decides to bring a fake fiancee to his cousin's wedding to mollify his uncle. And the only convenient candidate for this particular experiment is Sarah.

Sarah has been Jonathan's assistant for years, and she knows he's never thought of her in any other way. She's happy to play the part of his fiancee, but being thrown into unusual intimacy with her brilliant, sexy boss stirs up feelings she has never been able to admit before.

If only those feelings could be returned...

4.0 out of 5 stars Just so wonderful... March 26, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The fake fiance trope is one of my favorites and Noelle Adams put her wonderful touch to this sweet engaging tale. Sarah works for Jonathan in a lab in Iceland and has been in love with him for several years. One of the things I like best about this author is her ability to tell a tale in a myriad of settings. Her romances are set around the world. You are never bored with her settings. Jonathan's uncle funds the lab and, as his only guardian, wants Jonathan to settle down. Hence, the fake fiance. The characters are very engaging. Sarah was an ugly duckling as a child and has blossomed into a luscious young woman. Jonathan, whose personality sounds like he should have been classified somewhere on the Aspergers scale, is gruff yet sweet. What I loved about this book is the author's deft hand with the characters. How we find out so much about them in only a few pages. We know that Sarah is loved by her family but her social life has been limited. Jonathan's life was lonely and this affected him greatly to the point where he is unable to form meaningful connections with people. But anyone who has read any of these types of romances knows where the story goes so I don't have to tell you that. Just know that Noelle Adams' classic ever so hot touch to their coming together is solidly at work here. Oh my, sizzling hot. This is yet another reason why this author is an auto buy for me. I don't even read the synopses for her books anymore - I just one click it!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting story March 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've enjoyed this author's work and this series has been enjoyable. This is probably my favourite of the 3 so far in that this H was very different. He's a scientist and a bit of a workaholic and he's definitely lacking in social skills. His uncle is harassing him to get married and he is about to attend his cousin's wedding in the UK. The problem is that he has set up a lab in Iceland and is dependent on his uncle for funding. His colleague in the lab has secretly had a crush on him for years and offers to be his fake fiancée at the wedding. There is an attraction between the two of them but the H is truly hesitant about acting upon it. It really is a very sweet story.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Cute Escape April 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sometimes it's always nice to just escape to a world that doesn't require much thinking, a little bit of "feel good therapy". This book delivers that. The formula is pretty standard and the end feels like it was a bit rushed, but overall I was cheering for Jonathan and Sarah, the main couple. I was also hoping that more would transpire between Jonathan and his uncle, but it got a little confusing at the end, because it was so rushed. Perhaps the author was trying to not make the novel too long, which is a shame.

Overall a cute book, I plan on reading another one by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sweet and sexy love story! October 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This fabulous contemporary romance, third in the Heirs of Damon series but easily read as a standalone is the story of Sarah and Jonathan. Sarah has worked for Jonathan for several years and they've always had a professional relationship, one that Sarah wishes could turn into something more. But Jonathan is a dedicated scientist and his focus is on his research, leaving him little time to imagine his assistant as anything other than a friend and co-worker. When the funding by his wealthy uncle for his research is threatened by his unmarried state, Sarah volunteers to be his pretend fiancée. Suddenly together in a more social situation, Jonathan sees Sarah as she really is - a beautiful woman who just happens to love science like him, someone who he could easily picture sharing his life more fully. Will he let Sarah in or hide his new feelings for her in fear of losing the professional relationship that he values so highly?

I loved this story! There is nothing more appealing to me than having two introverted characters thrust into a situation where they really see each other and discover that there is a dormant attraction that has been just waiting to come to life. Jonathan is well portrayed as a handsome, shy, serious man, intent on his research and not looking for any kind of relationship. He trusts Sarah and values her help and her friendship but doesn't see her as a woman - until she lets her hair down, dresses up and the assistant he's always known becomes his femme fatale. Sarah was also wonderful as an equally studious and shy woman who's had a secret crush on her boss for so long that the chance to show him her feminine side fills her with delight and trepidation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fake fiancée and sweet geeky hero? Count me in! July 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Engaging the Boss is book 3 in the Heirs of Damon series and tells the story of Harrison and Andrew’s cousin, Jonathan Damon, who is a genetic scientist. His uncle, Cyrus, has funded Jonathan’s research lab, which has been of huge advantage to Jonathan, meaning that he’s been able to do the research purely independently rather than having to worry about commercial bias and keeping the sponsors happy. However, Cyrus has decided that Jonathan needs to settle down and the lab is taking too much of his focus, so he makes the despotic decision to cut the funding unless Jonathan pays more attention to his personal life. Panicked, Jonathan blurts out that he has recently become engaged. He is overheard in this phonecall by his assistant Sarah, who is devastated by this news because she’s been madly in love with him for some time. Jonathan confesses his lie to Sarah, and she offers to pose as his fiancée for a week-long visit to his family and to attend his cousin Harrison’s wedding.

I love, love, love the fake fiancée trope, it’s a guilty pleasure of mine, and I really enjoyed this book; it’s probably my favourite of this series so far. Of course we know from the outset what is likely to happen between the protagonists, but the fun is in the journey. Sarah is a really nice heroine. She has worked closely with Jonathan for the past few years, but she knows that somebody that gorgeous couldn’t be interested in her because she doesn’t feel that she’s attractive enough to tempt him. She also doesn’t want to endanger her job, which she loves. Jonathan was such a loveable male lead, most definitely not the alpha male type, but a sweet geek who doesn’t believe that people will love him as he is, but that he has to earn their love.
