Can Cara close the deal on love?
Eight steps for selling real estate. Can these rules be used for love?
Cara Jones, a top of the range real estate agent wants Richard Thompson's help. She needs a high profile man to be her handyman at the Shelter for Mankind auction. Who better than a millionaire who also happens to be gorgeous? Unfortunately the man is a recluse and avoids anything to do with publicity.
Although Richard has made a fortune, he still drives the same old car and lives in the poorer part of town. He resists Cara's request for help, but can't resist being drawn to her. The attraction is mutual but Richard is wary. He's sure Cara only wants his name and money for her project.
Cara is successful in business, but this means she is always on call and doesn't have much time for a life outside of work. She also has a social conscience and tries to help those less fortunate than herself. Richard hides from the press which means he also hides from any life outside of his work. Neither Richard nor Cara have much experience with relationships. Despite their strong attraction to each other, misunderstandings occur due to their inability to trust the other's motives.
I liked the smooth way both hero and heroine developed feelings for one another. The misunderstandings between were handled extremely well by the author and became natural extensions of the story. Both characters are professionals with very intelligent minds when it comes to business, but naive when faced with their emotions.
Despite the book being short, I found a depth to the story and characters which made it well rounded.
Selling Forever is a very pleasant tale to while away the afternoon.
