It’s not every day a girl inherits a condom company, and to say accountant Alice Beasley is astonished and out of her depth is putting it mildly. For an almost virgin, she needs a quick education in all things condom because her inheritance is in danger. Someone is intent on sabotage and playing nasty, trying to destroy her new company.
Alice is suddenly getting down and dirty with charismatic James, the factory manager, all in the name of business, testing new condom designs. The sex is hot. Mind-blowing. It’s a dark thrill and an erotic journey. Yeah, it’s a hard job, but a girl’s got to do what a girl’s gotta do.
The testing turns personal. Alice wants James. She craves his talented touch and sultry kisses, she desires passion and physical pleasure on a permanent basis but first she must convince bad-boy James to give up his fancy-free ways…
Warning: Condoms were tested and a few harmed during the writing of this story.

An inherited condom company brings adventure, love, laughter, challenge, and education into young Alice's life in FANCY FREE.
Above all else, this book was just so much fun to read. I laughed out loud and read passages out loud to co-workers to give them a laugh. There were very emotional scenes involving fear and heartbreak and distrust, but they were perfectly balanced with the lighter elements of the plot.
Alice, a quiet accountant with a mapped-out life plan and one sexual experience in her past, inherits a condom company from her godmother whom she hardly knew. Not even knowing that her godmother owned a condom company made her inheritance even that much more of a shock. And due to a clever stipulation in the will, Alice can not simply run home screaming, which is her first instinct. Chaos, hilarity, and heartbreak ensue when someone tries to sabotage the company, the octogenarian board members start talking sex with Alice, and when Alice starts to develop feelings for her product testing partner.
Alice is so completely out of her element that all of her lessons and struggles and emotions are amplified. The way the author writes about Alice's determination to control her feelings, manage a successful business, and stay on target with her life goals is so fantastic. I felt every emotion was genuine and every reaction to new and crazy situations was real. Alice's journey is amazing: she goes from simply wanting to "do her time" at the condom company to caring about it; she goes from wanting to have a hot, meaningless sexual encounter to developing a real connection with her business partner; and she goes from having little confidence in herself and her abilities to feeling like she can take on the world.
The cast of supporting characters did nothing but add to the enjoyment of this story. The board members, the hunky business partner, James, and even the anti-condom cult each offered to enhance the plot.
This was a great story with unexpected twists and turns. The plot really focused on how much you can discover about yourself by being open to new people and experiences.
