Lynn Madison transformed from repressed corporate drone to bold seductress overnight when her online friends at Tempt the Cougar encouraged her to take charge of her destiny. Their advice haunts her as she drools over the hottest Italian stallion on the planet while stranded in an airport.

Sebastian Fiori is a master of speed. A rally car driver, he’s used to winning on and off the track. He sees no need to put on the brakes when a sexy sophisticate revs his engine. After spotting Lynn’s decadent ménage novel, he decides to take her for the ride of a lifetime—with his navigator Mark.

Storm delays would be far more upsetting if Lynn’s young stud wasn’t offering a first-class ticket to indulge her fantasy. Neither of them expects their rendezvous to last beyond their transatlantic flight on his private jet. But sometimes there’s no escaping the forces of nature.

Fast cars and an even faster moving hot Italian driver. The one word that comes to mind when I think of Jayne Rylon’s Driven…breathless!

The oxygen deprivation for me began the moment Lynn Madison meets and reciprocates an easy flirtation with rally car driver, Sebastian Fiori. His charm and sex appeal just seam to steam right off the pages.

The Cougar Challenge series was a new experience for this reviewer. I tend to pick books in the more traditional genre of older man / younger woman. There was some element in the blurb for Driven that caught my attention. It could have been that the character of Sebastian, as well as the name of the book, made me think of Cristian de la Fuente’s character in the 2001 movie Driven.

While there wasn’t nearly enough face time for Cristian’s character in the movie, you are never left wanting in Ms. Rylon’s book. The chemistry between Lynn and Sebastian is real and H-O-T! Sebastian’s attraction to Lynn is instant and he goes out of his way to create time for them to be together as well as fulfilling her fantasy of a ménage along the way.

Lynn was a great character. For me, she was very “real”. Her anxiety over having Sebastian take over, change her plans and push her to venture into the unknown was genuine and believable.

Ms. Rylon has been added to my "Author’s To Watch" list for penning this fun and fast-moving short story. Being a cougar never sounded so good!
