So when she's forced to team up with Todd Peters, NASCAR's number one bad boy, to grant the wish of a terminally ill child, she vows to keep things professional.

Recommended to Samantha by: sports romance readers
Just a warning, this book is a tear jerker. The romance is there but it's not in full force like the other Nascar romance books in this series. The lead character in this book is a 10 year old little boy with cancer that wants a wish granted with a Nascar driver. It helps if you've read the other books in the series so that you already know who Todd Peters is and the other surrounding characters that are mentioned in the books. Ms. Britton gives some updates on the other couples in the series. I ...more

Indi Wilcox travaille pour l'association caritative Miracles qui s'occupe de réaliser le rêve d'enfants gravement malades. Elle essaye d'ailleurs aujourd'hui d'organiser une rencontre entre Benjamin, petit garçon de 10 ans atteint d'une leucémie myéloïde chronique, et Todd Peters, champion de Nascar (et pas de Formule 1 comme indiqué sur la 4ème de couverture). Sauf que Todd a déjà annulé deux rendez-vous et qu'Indi est prête à tout pour que Benjamin puisse vivre son rêve.

Todd admits that he was wrong. Unknowingly he missed 2 meetings with little Benjamin, a kid who has cancer and whose wish was to meet his hero - the NASCAR driver. So he decides to do everything he can to make up for it. But the woman who accompanies Benjamin holds his attention as well.

Indi has dedicated her life to Miracles, a company that fulfills the wishes of kids with terminal illnesses. And her opinion of Todd is really low, how can somebody let down a kid? But then she gets to know him,

Total Control by Pamela Britton
NASCAR Series Book 5
Indi Wilcox is ticked off with a capital T. Another egotistical sports figure has blown off meeting with a young fan who may have very little time left. Young Benjamin is dying and his wish was to meet the man he considers a hero, a NASCAR driver. She’s not going to put up with it and takes it onto herself to do something about it.

Todd Peters has made life about himself and winning, he’s not always a team player either. He has been pegged with t

I enjoyed the first half of this book much moreso than the last half. It got a bit carried away at the end and it was all ribbons and bows.

Todd Peters reminds me of a few real NASCAR bad-boys, but I fail to see the real "bad" in him. All in all he is rather fluffy if not a little distracted by speed and loose women.

That is until the completely infuriating Indi Wilcox (yes, a supremely terrible name) comes storming into the circut. She seems too cold, too aloof,etc. I dunno.

I liked it overall, e

I loved this book! The storyline was fantastic and getting a look at how a hot-shot NASCAR driver could quickly go from focused solely on his racing career and caring nothing about those around him, to meeting a little boy, who started as an obligation and ends up teaching him some of life's greatest lessons. This was such a fantastic read!

Same old, same old. Not much difference from the other books in the NASCAR series. But I enjoyed it, nevertheless.

Todd is the essential bad boy while Indy is the essential do-gooder. Their characters clashed but they come together for an ailing kid. It's heartwarming, actually. But still, a mediocre story. Too... cliche, I suppose.

From the minute I started reading this I couldn't put it down! Pamela put a lot more emotion into this book than the other books I've read by her. I was also very satisfied with the ending. It could have taken a different turn but didn't and I love that. Can't wait to read the rest of the Nascar based books by Pamela Britton.

This was an easy read, there was of course a gimme at the end. I have enjoyed all of the Pamela Britton books I have read, and I will read more. I have passed them all on to my mom who in turn has passed them on to other friends.

I really couldn't wait to read Todd's story, especially in the previous book where he was caught in a love triangle. This is a good read and I recommend it if you liked any other Britton book. 3/5 stars.

Beautiful Indi Wilcox had her heart broken by a race car driver, and vows not to get involved again. But she has to team with bad boy Todd Peters to grant a wish to a terminally ill child. Part of the Harlequin Nascar series, so you know there’s going to be racing and romance

She works with dying children. He's a self-absorbed jerk of a race car driver. It did make me cry, especially with the talking about the dying children! So sad. But I really enjoyed it.
