Chase Calhoun has worked hard at making Calhoun Customs a world-wide sensation and keeping his father’s dream alive. He hasn’t had time to think about settling down, so he’s not expecting to find love or new life in their garage amongst the ghosts of his family’s past.
Charlotte Jackson is on the run from a rebellious past, determined to prove she can be a good mom to three-month-old baby, Zoe. Tired of being delegated to the back office of the racing team her famous NASCAR family owns, she sets out to establish herself as a custom design artist. But her past soon threatens her future and everything she’s worked hard to build is challenged.
While Chase slowly loses his heart, Charlotte learns that sometimes family is more than just blood and DNA.

Chase was a sweetheart. In fact, I loved the entire Calhoun clan. Charlie sounded like a child until the end. I kept trying to figure out how old she was. The story wrapped up too neatly. The timeline was weird. Everything was resolved within a week. Decades of emotional pain was resolved in a week. Not very believable, but cute. Insta-love. Chase is the ultimate dream guy.25
Loved the story. It was all and made an awesome read.55
What a sweet book. I loved it and couldn’t put it down. A wonderful family in the Calhouns that have suffered much from loss of family members, but stayed strong regardless. Charlie was running from her family which was the opposite of the Calhouns. Hers was cutthroat and devious and callous! Charlie grew with the help of the Calhouns and Chase. And omg he was wonderful with Zoe! I highly recommend this book. Ready for book 2 now.55
Good read, kept me engaged all the way through. I will read the rest of the series.55
There is lots of room for more romances in this family of nascar drivers, mechanics and ranchers. The plot of this read revolves around a desperate young mother and her infant. Her need to escape a tyrannical father leads to love and acceptance.35
The story of Chase Calhoun and Charlie Jackson is full of drama, sweet romance, with an adorable baby to boot! You will love the Calhoun family, their strength, toughness, and the sorrow that’s made them who they are.55
Overdrive (Book 1 in the Calhoun Customs Series) by Juanita Kees. This is Chase Calhoun and Charlotte “Charlie” Jackson’s story. This was a fun read. I was hooked from beginning to end. Chase is so wonderful. I love how his family calls him “Mother”. His character is so caring of everyone. Charlie just wants to make a fresh start, to be loved for herself, and the best mother she can be for Zoe. Chase and Charlie are perfect for each other but what will happen when Chase discovers her secrets? What will happen when Charlie’s Past catches up to her? This was an entertaining and enjoyable read. I look forward to the next books in this series. I reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.55
