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...

2.0 out of 5 stars Flat characters and a rushed relationship September 13, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I usually like the brilliant, absent-minded intellectual who can't see what's right in front of him, but here it was taken to the extreme and I was left feeling that Jonathan was flat, stupid, and unemotional. I also didn't believe he could have changed so quickly in the end or that the relationship could have progressed that fast. I never felt the connection between Jonathan and Sarah either. They spend most of their time confused and unsure of the other. Literally, the first mature discussion of their relationship where someone isn't hiding their emotions, they are confessing their love. I just didn't believe them, especially Jonathan. And suddenly Jonathan has always loved her, even though he's just started viewing her as a woman. The entire book fell flat for me and the characterizations were 2-dimensional.

This is the first work by Adams that I've disliked so I highly recommend her in general, just not this book.

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!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Could be read as a stand alone. January 8, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I admit that I have not read book 1 & 2 in the series. I managed to get this book while it was for free on Amazon and thought it sounded good. First off, I didn't feel like I was in the dark just because I hadn't read the first two books. It is like each book is stand alone but still connected so you know who each person is through out.

The author manages to give such vivid details without making you feel as if she is trying to fill a word quota. I can visually see an intelligent man that has a rumpled shirt but still look good. I could feel how the emotions rolled off the page. I could feel the insecurities, the longing, and the desire (and not just sexual but true desire).

This has a HEA and it does not have a cliffhanger for those who typically steer away from series because of cliffhangers. I am definitely going to read the rest of the series. As for the sex scenes..........if you are looking for a book that has no intimacy at all this is not the book to read. It is not much and it does not even come close to being overtly sexual but vanilla.

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.
