The Proposal: Adeline Rigby will live with Accountant Jack Foster and pretend to be his fake fiancée for one month in order for him to seal a promotion to partner. In return, Accountant Jack Foster will intimately tutor Adeline Rigby in French before she leaves for Paris where she will fulfill her dream of attending Le Cordon Bleu.
1. Maintain distance. Three get-to-know-you dates before announcing their engagement will be tempting enough.
2. No kissing. Okay, fine. Three kisses. Maybe four. And neck kisses don’t count.
3. No touchy feely stuff. Or at least not too many public displays of touchy-feely stuff.
4. No sex.
5. All right, all right. One night of sex in order to be a believable engaged couple.
6. Two nights of mind-blowing sex to make sure first night wasn’t a fluke.
7. Absolutely, positively, no falling in love.

My Rating: 3.5 stars
The Attraction of Adeline is a fun, quirky romance that will have you chuckling one moment, frustrated beyond belief the next and perhaps a bit misty-eyed at some points.
Adeline didn’t believe in love, not the forever kind. She’d never seen this so called love thing work out before. So a purely fake relationship where Jack got what he wanted and she got her dreams was perfect. Jack didn’t expect to fall for his temporary bride to be, and was even less prepared to learn that she totally did not believe in lasting love. She didn’t want the words because the words were most often lies. All he could do was show her how he felt with actions and hope at at some point she’d believe his words of love.
I enjoyed Jack and Adeline’s rocky romance. She had other commitments and dreams, he found what he didn’t know he wanted. Somehow they managed to make all their dreams find a way to become reality. I admit, there were moments of frustration with Adeline, her treatment of Jack, the way she refused to believe in what her own emotions were screaming at her. Yet, we all love differently, and Adeline had to find her way into something she’d been so certain didn’t exist.
I enjoyed my time with this couple and would recommend this one for any Romance reader.
