Tess can't believe her whiz-kid son has quit school for NASCAR! Problem is, she was prepared to hate Sam, the person responsible for derailing her son's academic future. But Sam isn't the risk-taking adrenaline junkie she expected. In fact, the situation is much worse. Their undeniable attraction is leaving her breathless!

Meet the Author

Carrie has loved books forever. Her earliest childhood memories include snuggling with her cocker spaniel while her mother read a bedtime story. She treasured the cozy, all-is-right-with-the-world feeling of those special times.

Reading still provides an anchor for Carrie when life gets crazy. With two boys, two dogs, a cat and a potbellied pig, life frequently does get chaotic. But chocolate and a good book generally make any problem look more manageable.

    A Chance Worth Taking by Carrie Weaver Harlequin NASCAR Series L

    A Chance Worth Taking by Carrie Weaver
    Harlequin NASCAR Series Library
    After her risk taking husband left her alone to raise their toddler, Tess McIntyre became overly cautious. A bit of an overprotective mom, well actually a very, very overprotective mom. When her genius son Michael turns away his full ride to Stanford to announce he wants to race cars, her life falls apart. Or is this just a new beginning for her?




    Sam Kincaid had a good feeling about this kid, even if he was only eighteen. His instincts told him to put Michael on his NASCAR Busch racing team, he just didn’t know the kid would come with his mother, his very beautiful but protective mother. He only had to put up with her for six months and then send her back to Phoenix. Sam had no clue things could change so much in a mere six months.




    This was a really unique story. Michael is a genius and it adds to making him a good driver, it also gives a unique view of fame at such a young age. Tess has been the best mom she could, but the story shows how sometimes we have to let our kids fail to help them in life. As always there is just as much action off the track as on it.

    Stanford University offers eighteen year old science genius Michael McIntyre a full scholarship to the euphoria of his single mom Tess. However NASCAR racing team owner Sam Kinkaid thinks the teen has the talent to be a superstar and offers him a position as a driver. Over his mom¿s objections, Michael chooses driving the oval instead of going to college.---------- Mother and son travel to Charlotte where he begins his NASCAR career with incredible success. Tess, who planned to loathe Sam, finds him caring and concerned about his new employee. As she falls in love with her son¿s employer he reciprocates. However, both have other concerns that place their growing relationship on suspension as Michael proves immature allowing fame to go to his head.---------- This terrific family drama combines a coming of age subplot with a romance between two middle aged protagonists. Michael is terrific as he discovers women and alcohol, but not tolerance and control until he almost throws it all away. Tess and Sam put their love on hold because they fear for Michael as his choices have been abominable. NASCAR takes a back seat to the lead trio.------------ Harriet Klausner
