Nobody's Fool By Renee Roszel
American Tribute Series Book 5
Martin Dante is a wealthy man but lately something seems to be missing from his life. When he meets Cara outside their sports club and gives her a ride to the university, something about her is refreshing. But she does her best to keep him away from her.
Cara Torrence has steeled herself against men. An incident when she was seventeen and a couple fiance's later has shown her that it's not worth her time, or the pain they leave behind. So why of all the men in the world is it Martin that can break through her iron steel sanctuary?
Another page turning book by Renee Roszel. Once I started reading I didn't want to stop. It gives the reader a slightly emotional ride on the hearts roller coaster as these two fight their attraction to each other. Add in a practical joke pulling friend and a handsome, a governors race along with a nine mile marathon, and it all adds up to a great story. Some of other characters in this book have stories in this six book series. Cara's sister and the candidate they support have stories in book 3: Right Behind the Rain by Elaine Camp and book 6: Misty Mornings, Magic Nights by Ada Steward.
Two more opposite people had never been born. Martin Dante's "proper" upbringing had left its mark, while Cara lived in a world where taking yourself too seriously was a cardinal sin. One thing seemed perfectly clear: they should stay as far apart as possible. But they couldn't.
Martin's boasts about his athletic prowess drove Cara to distracton. Furious, she dared him to race against her in the nine-mile Tulsa Run. If she lost, it meant 24 hrs of catering to martin's every whim. But if he failed, Martin would need to develop a sense of humor--and fast!
