After reading and loving the first two books in the Santa Lena Sizzles series I was beyond excited to get my hands on Overdrive. I loved diving back in with this great ensemble of characters and Jessa York’s great writing.
Vivienne is a planner. She wants a career, a family, the perfect husband, and a big, beautiful home to live in. At 37 she has the beautiful home of her dreams, but that’s all she’s checked off her list. Focusing on her career has brought her success, but now she feels like she’s running out of time for everything else. Then after a fun girls night out she finds herself having a one night stand with the sexy and charming ride-share driver tasked with taking her and group of friends home. That was definitely not in her plans, but she figures why not? After a hot night together she tells him goodbye, only to leave Vivienne with consuming memories of their time together. But luck and fate conspire when he shows up as her driver a second time.
I’m not a particular fan of age gaps when the woman is older, but this story was so fun I didn’t even really notice. Jason and Vivienne are at two completely different points in their lives. She’s 37 with a stable and flourishing career. He’s 25 and a struggling driver. She’s ready to settle down, have kids, and live in her gorgeous house. He’s never really wanted a serious relationship and barely making rent. And yet they both feel such a strong connection. Not to mention they are hot, hot, hot together! I loved this mismatched yet perfectly paired couple. I also loved getting to revisit old friends and all the baking Vivienne does. I now feel the need to bake too! This was such a fun and sexy read. The perfect addition to the series and another win for Jessa York. 5 Stars.
