Erin Noelle is bringing us a Sexy, Fun, Contemporary Romance! Get ready for Finley and Teague – and find out if she slaps him or rings his MEGABALLS!
I’ve got 99 problems but money ain’t one. Though a sister with cotton candy for brains, a spatula-wielding six-year-old niece with a British accent, and the mysterious businessman who left me that damn ticket are all currently vying for the top spot.
When I became the sole winner of a $270 million Megaball jackpot, thanks to a sexy stranger who left a lottery ticket instead of paying for his meal, my entire world flipped upside-down.
Now, with money-sucking vultures, douchebags by the dozens, and a horde of total hotties just waiting to get their mangy paws on my newfound fortune, I set out to locate the man who gifted me the winning ticket–to properly thank him.
However, when I finally find the cocky, self-absorbed business tycoon, Teague Goodman, I’m not sure whether I want to slap him… or ring his MEGABALLS.

“Wealth is not what you have in your bank account, but what you have in your heart.”
Erin Noelle tackles a new genre with her first foray into Romantic Comedy. Megaballs is a light hearted read with a healthy dose of Mr Sexy Eyes and a cute six-year-old kid that could have stood her own with the blue rinse brigade.
Finley Farewell is a young woman struggling to support herself, her sister and niece. While Finley’s sister has delusions of grandeur, Finley is more grounded, sensible and serious, she keeps their heads above water even though it feels like a sinking ship most of the time. Finley works at an Italian restaurant where the waitresses are akin to Hooters but more up market, relying on her tips to keep them afloat a sleazy manager is easy to stomach when the clientele are high rollers. Late once again because of her sister Finley is thrust into work where one of the men in her section catches her attention, well his eyes at least.
“That’s it, old man. Succumb to the power of the titties. You know you want to.”
Teague Goodman is the CEO of his family’s farm business, a young entrepreneur that has seen the business flourish and become a multi-million-dollar company. With success comes resentment and jealousy and none more so from the huge conglomerates that want even more of the lions share that they already have. Now in the fight of his life against one of the said greedy conglomerates, Teague’s bad day gets worse and off to drown his sorrows he ends up in the restaurant where Finley works.
Finley is a klutz and it seems that this trait of hers is desperate to get her in Teague’s lap in more ways than one. With laughs aplenty during their first meet I had tears as Finley definitely makes a hair raising impression. Mr Sexy Eyes as Finley calls him seems to reciprocate the intense chemistry however, when Finley’s back is turned Mr Sexy Eyes has gone leaving only a note on a lottery ticket. A lottery ticket that wins the Megaballs Jackpot that night.
Finley’s life is thrust into the spotlight and her life has definitely changed forever, but she cannot get Mr Sexy Eyes out of her mind. With a sister that is all about the money and how quick she can max out her cards and a meddling niece that only has her best interests at heart the search for Mr Sexy Eyes is on.
“…you can have all the money in the world, but until you truly love someone, it’s all just empty riches.”
Fiona, Finley’s niece made this book for me, written well beyond her years, her dry sense of humour and wise comments gave me a grin from ear to ear. At times I felt as if her dialogue was too “adult” but am aware that there are kids out there that are mini Einstein’s, but being the mother of a rather intelligent six-year-old myself I found it a tad unbelievable.
“Sometimes I swear there’s no possible way I can be her child. I mean, seriously. Not only do we look nothing alike, like as opposite as you can be and still have the same skin color, but I think my IQ surpassed hers in the womb.”
I did have a few laughs but for me this was more a contemporary romance. The romcom’s that I have read thus far are normally over the top or high on innuendo and while this had some witty banter I just felt that situations were included just to be funny, it felt a little forced, but funny none the less. In summary though, this was a cute read, a lot of fun and highly entertaining. I loved Finley and Teague as a couple and while it was instalust these two were really suited…sometimes you just know, I know I did.
He has a girlfriend? With my name? Please tell me I’m still asleep and this is just one of those strange, ridiculous dreams that makes no sense whatsoever. Though, I do hope that kiss in the kitchen was real… unless, of course, he does in fact have a girlfriend, and then I just want to punch him in the nutsack for being a cheating asshole.
“Oh, shit,” Teague hisses, as he runs into the back of me, seeing as how I’ve stopped dead in my tracks just before turning the corner to the front foyer. “What in the—”
“Teague!” Fiona yells, cutting him off. “Some twat named Finley who claims to be your girlfriend is here, and she doesn’t look anything like my bloody auntie!”
He grabs my arms and spins me around, panic painting his expression as he stares deeply into my eyes. “This isn’t what it looks like. I swear to you. I’ll tell you everything. Just let me get rid of her. Stay right here.”
