Indi Wilcox works with Miracles, formally known as the Wishing Tree Foundation. She is upset that the famous race driver has blown off two meetings to see Benjamin, a terminally ill patient. Each time she schedules an appointment, he never phones back. The man simply is spoiled rotten.
Todd Peters was enjoying some free time alone until Indi climbs his fence and takes her frustrations out on him. He believes he might have finally met his match.
Todd informs her that he does not make his schedules; she should phone his assistant, Jen, of which Indi has many times. Todd agrees to call Jen after Indi gets on the boat with him, so he can enjoy his last couple of free hours. Indi feels he is just another spoiled celebrity who becomes self-centered after meeting fans. Her ex-boyfriend was the same way. Todd feels Indi could have been his type of girl if it had not been for the last one who broke his heart and left him for another man. All he cares for now is racing. After he invites Benjamin to one of his races, he insists Indi come along. She is not too happy about the situation but agrees. Benjamin and his mother, Linda, think Todd and Indi really care for each other but are afraid to open up their true feelings. The more time Todd spends with Benjamin, he does not want to let the boy go, and he finds Indi an amazing woman that shows him winning is not always everything.
I think this is a magnificent book. The beginning immediately caught my attention and latched on until the conclusion. Total Control is powerful, compelling and an impressive read that is worthy enough to read many times over. The part about the hit man was so hilarious; it took me a while to stop laughing. I could almost see the expression on Todd’s face. Indi is not only bright and funny, but she has spunk. She and Todd emit priceless expressions that this reader could practically see, and emotions that leaped in my heart. The secondary characters really give a great uplift to the storyline. Pamela Britton has composed a well-crafted gem that comes highly recommended. She sketches a story with refreshing dialogue and a remarkable read that excels.
