Accountant Cassy Morris knows she’s putting her heart on the line when she agrees to
move in with her best friend, multi-millionaire geek Scott Thornton while she manages his nanotechnology lab and finds an angel investor for his revolutionary new product. She’s loved him forever even though he’s only ever regarded her as a friend. But Cassy never could refuse Scott anything...

When Scott is named Seattle’s sexiest man, the attention from women threatens to get in the way of him finishing his pet project and putting it on the market. Cassy steps up once again and pretends to be his fiancé. A lifetime of repressed sexual tension explodes in a passionate affair. Soon Scott is wondering how he can convince Cassy to turn their fake engagement into reality...
Mad About You was a great mix of business and pleasure.  Cassy and Scott have been best friends forever and employer/employee just now.  Both afraid to make a move and ruin their forever friendship, one of them will have to step up to the plate and make the first move.  In the meantime, Cassy needs to find an investor willing to help Scott move his company to the next level and produce a really amazing new technology.

Scott has a lot of baggage though, and it may prevent him from succeeding in busines or with Cassy.  It's a good thing both their stubborn streaks are a mile long because they both need them.

I really enjoyed the computer nerds and techies that work for Scott.  They don't have a large part, but they really add a dose of humor and liveliness that is very refreshing.  They are oblivious to the sexual tension in the air around them and it makes for a couple of interesting small scenes.

When things finally start to happen, it gets hot really fast and the chemistry is undeniable.
