What do you do when an eight year old tries to steal your broke down car? Why become her live-in nanny, of course. That's where Autumn finds herself after finding out the little thief is the daughter of the man she has been crushing on. Rui is a college professor and single dad struggling to raise his unruly daughter. Simone has been skipping school and acting out due to the absence of her mother.

When Rui is called to the police station to retrieve his daughter once again, he comes face to face

Autumn Raine is trying to keep balance in her life, going to school, training for the big race in Endurance and work a job so she can keep a roof over her head.

Rui Conners is a college professor and a single dad who happens to have a crush on Autumn who does not even know he is interested. An unexpected incident brings the two face to face.

I enjoy reading about the single dad capital in Endurance, California it is refreshing to read about men stepping up and taking care of their kids, the town h

Even though it says it's book 4, it not a series where you have to read them in a certain order. It's a group of stories of men from a small town in the northern part of California called Endurance and how they each find the woman they're meant to be with. In this story you meet Autumn Raine, a struggling college student with a troubled past. She comes in contact with College Professor Rui Connors through is terror of a child, eight year old Simmone. Add to the mix, Rui's famous Ex Wife, Kristen ...more

Shelves: afro-romance, fiction
As with the whole series, this title, too, has egregious editorial issues, along with glaring continuity issues from previous titles in the series. If you can get past that, this series is a fun and light reading, and reminiscent of a D. Macomber series, but in Endurance, CA, and with people of color. I would recommend reading in this order:
- Book 1
- Book 2
- Book 5

All of the above were written by Olivia Gaines, then read:
- Book 3
- Book 4
- Book 6

All of the above were written by Sierra London.

Another Great Read

Ruis and Autumn was something else she really liked him and when she worked a bit for Owen and Ivy babysitting Cai he went by for breakfast just to get a glance at her smiling face. She needed extra money to finish paying her rent and was jogging everyday to train for a marathon that was upcoming to win big bucks. Hey was a professor as well as a divorce single dad raising his right year old daughter who had him wrapped around her little finger and was on the bratty side and al

I received an advanced copy of Going the Distance for an honest review.
I enjoyed the book and the small town of Endurance. The hero, Rui got on my nerves in the beginning, because he couldn't let go of the past. I liked Autumn and the goals she set for herself to better her life. Rui's daughter, Simone was a brat in the beginning. But, we find out she was just acting out
I loved the relationship that developed between Autumn and the daughter, Simone. That was the most endearing to me. The book

A Very Sweet and Sensual Interracial Romance

Going The Distance (The Men of Endurance Book 4) is s very sweet and Sensual interracial romance novella that earned a rating of four stars. Professor Rui Conner and Autumn had a crush on each other. Rui had a lot of baggage and they had to overcome a lot of obstacles to find their happy ever after. I enjoyed reading this novella and would recommend it to everyone who enjoys reading good romance novellas.

This is a nice fairly simple predictable tale. Rui's ex is quite cringeworthy with her plastic self-absorbed phony hedonistic lifestyle. Even her kid recognized the emptiness there. Rui makes a lot of dumb mistakes but he gets it together in the end and his Alpha male performance that one time is a surprise. Autumn & Rui make a sweet inevitable couple with a dash of quirkiness that seems common in Endurance.'s nice.😊

Education in family

Love this series. There is so much fun, laughter and love. Its like getting to know a community of love. Rui did have me ready to hit gim over the head. When his ex came back he shouldn't have needed to be told by anyone to tell jer to go away. He almost lost Autumn with his stupid stuff. His ex was not someone I'd want to be around. No way could I leave my child as a mother. Looking forward to reading more about these Men of Endurance.

This was a wonderful read! Rui, Autumn and Simone are fantastic, well developed characters. Simone is crying out for the attention she isn’t receiving from her mother. Autumn and Rui have been characters since the first installment of this series and it was great to see them get their HEA.

Rui and Autumn

I enjoyed this story but there were technical issues like continuity problems: Autumn wearing Reeboks that later became Nikes, Rui breaking down a bedroom door having his ex-wife enter then leave and then he makes love to Autumn in a room with no door and an ex-wife around the corner? And a few others. These sorts of things tripped me up.

Another sweet second chance Romance. Autumn and Ruined were definitely opposite that were made for each other. And Simone!!! Can't wait to see what she does next.
