Tick, tock.
It's deafening.
The damn biological clock.

There's only one way to silence it
And it's not with the hot, sexy, rideshare driver.

He's too young--even if he gets my motor running.

One night is all he's getting,
All I'm willing to give.
Cutting him loose is my only option.

But when we meet up again,
I realize one thing.
Driving a hard bargain isn't going to get me where I w

Overdrive is book three in the Santa Lena Sizzles series by Jessa York. I absolutely loved the first two books in this series focusing on Harper and Jack and was so excited to learn that book three would be about Vivienne. This book can definitely be read as a stand alone but if you read the first two books, you would already be familiar with this zany group of people.

Vivienne handles the sales at Brentford Organics, a food and produce supply company we became familiar with in the previous books
Oh my gawd! I am absolutely in love with Vivienne and Jason as well as the rowdy group of characters that orbit their lives.

For Vivienne, time is running out to build the perfect family. Mr. Right is nowhere in sight and the hot cab driver she just spent the night with is definitely not him. Their age difference alone is enough to clue her in to that fact. So with a tin of muffins, a smile, and a distracting kiss goodbye, she sends him on his way. Three months later, and still no hope in sight,
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Overdrive by Jessa York is book Three in the Santa Lena Sizzles series. This is the story of Vivienne and Jason. This book can be a standalone book for sure, but the other were really good so you might want to consider reading them too.
Vivienne is thirty seven years old and a successful women but she has never meant the right man nor had the children that she wanted, an now heading toward giving that dream up. Vivienne had a hot encounter with Jason but that was hit until they meet up again. Ja

This series is funny, romantic and and all around entertaining series. I knew when we got to Vivienne’s story that it would be a good one and the author did not disappoint me. She has written a great story around her and of course all her crazy-fun friends are there to help and maybe cause some mischief too.

Vivienne seems like she always has it together, the party gal who is always dressed to the nines and lives the high life. But on the inside she’s anything but, she desperately wants love and

I loved this book with Vivienne and Jason's story even more than the first 2 books!

Jason and Vivienne fall hard and fast for each other, at least after that first night when it didn't look like there would be another night to Jason's disappointment. They are at completely different places in their lives. Jason is struggling, barely paying his bills, using a car for his driveshare business that is close to falling apart. Vivienne is established in her career with money in the bank and ready to st

Yesssss!!!! Age Gap! Older woman! So so so good! This book broke my heart... Then put it back together.... Just to break my heart again!!! Jason is that H that you want to love but have a hard time trusting him! He never gives you a real reason to not trust him... But I just kept having a feeling! I wanted to throw my Kindle a time or 2 but I'm glad I didn't because then I wouldn't have been able to finish their story!!! And what an ending it was!!! 5🌟 all the way!!!

I loved Vivienne and Jason’s story. Vivienne, a successful professional, is running out of time to start her family and Jason is a struggling writer trying to make a living as a driver. He sees Vivienne when in his car, who happens to be older than him, and is immediately drawn to her. Vivienne likes Jasón as well but is hesitant over their age difference. But love knows no time, age, or position in life. I felt for her and what she was going through. I really enjoyed their story and keeping up ...more

I have loved this series!! Vivienne and Jason are so great together. Yeah there may be an age difference but when it comes down to it age is just a number. When you love someone there is nothing to stop you from being with the one you are meant to be.

I can't wait to read more from this author and from the other characters in the Santa Lena books.

I will definitely be reading more from this author in the future.

Vivienne is a strong independent woman who is ready to have a family, but hasn't found Mr. Right yet. She's making plans to do this on her own until she meets Jason and has a one night stand with him. Jason and Vivienne have an instant connection.

The friendship of the women in this series is strong and loyal. Harper, Riley, Audrey, Roza and Vivienne can find all kinds of trouble to get into when they are together, but they're always there for each other when the times are tough. They will do any

I’m so glad I kept reading. This one is as good as the first two. I’m falling farther down the rabbit hole. I can’t wait for the fourth one to be out. If the books hadn’t sold me on taking a chance and continuing on reading this series, then Jessa herself would have closed the deal. She’s the bomb!

This book is just as good as the firat 2 in the series. Vivienne and Jason are so hot together that you want to be them. Vivienne is such a strong woman. But Jason is just the man for her. Do not miss this book or series.

So super cute! Loved Vivianne and Jason’s story! The characters from the last book make an appearance. Really liked Dean in this one and felt like they could’ve been together as well. Still want to know what’s up with Riley.

Overdrive is another wonderful addition to the Santa Lena Sizzles world. Jason and Vivienne were so much fun to read about. Love the added twist thrown in with the older woman, younger man storyline, as well as some realistic challenges that an age difference may cause. But, age truly is just a number and when two people are meant to be together, they will find a way.

Once again, the secondary characters just give the book a little something extra. Love the friendships and camaraderie be

Oh how I loved Jason and Vivienne's story!!! It was a fresh romance with us getting the older woman, younger man for a change. Jessa did it really well.

I felt it was believable. It was funny, it was definitely hot & just the right amount of sweet feels. I have to say - as with her other stories, her secondary characters really bring something to the book. They make it feel richer and I hope we get more from them too.

Really great read & I definitely recommend.

Beautiful story with steamy erotic scenes, I like the plot and realistic writing! Characters were real. I went looking for the next book, but couldn't find one. I liked the weaving of old and new characters. Good ending!

Jessa York sure doesn’t seem like a new author. She seems like she’s been doing this gig forever!
She’s bringing out books after books, and they’re all just so good!
The third installment—which can be read as a stand-alone—in the Santa Lena series is about Jason and Vivienne.

I absolutely adored these two. Every book I’ve read that’s had a significant age gap has always been the younger woman with older man.
This was my first time reading the reverse. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Vivienne is a woman
I've never been to Santa Lena, but this series is causing me some serious FOMO!
So this is where all the hotties are hiding now?!

This was such a fun, flirty, sexy addition to a series that has already rung my romance bell.
I wasn't sure what I was expecting for the third book, but it definitely wasn't the spin on age gap romance that Jessa just slayed me with.

Overdrive (Santa Lena Sizzles Book 3) by Jessa York is a contemporary, age gap romance told in dual POV. Although part of a series and we originally met Vivienne in the previous books, this can definitely be read as a standalone.

Thirty-seven-year-old, Vivienne, can feel her biological clock ticking. She has always wanted marriage and a family, but time is running out and she still hasn't met Mr. Right. She decides to take matters into her own hands with her doctor's help and begins to explore op

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

After having read the first two books in this series (which were a duet) I knew I was going to love Vanessa’s story. We got to meet her in Over Easy and Over Hard (the duet), and knew she was the life and soul of the party. But what we didn’t know was her secret desire. For Mr. and a big family.
Vanessa is on the wrong side of thirty and is desperate to be a wife and mom, but that wish never seems to come any closer to happening. When she meets Jason, he’s her driver for the night. He’s hot, youn

I really enjoyed this older woman/younger man romance. A well written, relatable storyline provides a solid backbone for this engaging book. The chemistry and steam level is intense and sizzling. I liked both these characters so much. I thought that Vivienne was realistic and relatable. Smart, driven, successful and questioning her decisions and racing her biological clock. She was definitely a character that many women can easily see themselves in. Jason was fun, hot, motivated, sympathetic and ...more

I’m so in love with the Santa Le Sizzles characters we’ve met so far in the first row books but Vivienne always intrigued me so I was so happy so finally got her own book and Jessa York wrote us a first class story to drool over!

I was swept away by Vivienne’s life from the very beginning and how much she struggled to accept what was happening around her. She has one great goal in life and it broke my heart watch her struggle so badly at times. As with many women her battle with anxiety over how

Overdrive is the third book in the Santa Lena Sizzles series. I received this book as a ARC for a honest review, so here goes. I love this series it just keeps getting better and better. I literally read these books in one sitting as I can’t put them down. This book is different to the first two as this book is about Vivienne a 37 year old and Jason who’s 12 years younger. Their chemistry together is amazing and makes for a super read. I guess you could read this book as a stand-alone but there’ ...more

This was another great story in the Santa Lena series. Jason is a driver, which leads him to picking up Vivienne and her boss Dean. He is instantly attracted to Vivienne, and she shows interest as well. Neither of them is looking for anything more than having some fun. They hook up and she more or less tosses him from her bed. He thought for sure there would be more between them. Their chemistry is undeniable and hot. They go months without seeing or hearing from each other until the nights her ...more

A sweet book about a driver (think Uber driver) and a successful woman. She is older, but you can't help who you fall in love with.

Jason and Vivienne are very fun. It is a very interesting journey for these two. Jason doesn't care about the age difference but Vivienne does. Age is just one thing that is different for these two.

I always love book series when the characters from previous books show up and we get to see more of the first ones we fell in love with. Jack and harper make an appearance

Loved the story!

I enjoyed this younger man older woman theme that didn’t disappoint! Vivienne and Jason had great chemistry from the start and their story kept getting hotter as they get together. Will the fun end when she is looking for more than he can give? You need to one click this fun, hot and sexy read to find out if they get their HEA.

Oh my word, I absolutely love Vivienne & Jason. Vivienne wants the perfect family but hasn't found the right man & her biological clock is ticking. She thought for sure Jason is not the perfect man for her because he's younger than she is. Jason was shocked when Vivienne dumped him but was happy when she found him again 3 months later. They were a great pair, I loved this story.
