Overdrive Week - Meet Chelsea and Matias

Today I finish introducing you to the group of teens who must steal seven cars in seven weeks. Friday will be my review and a fun giveaway so be sure to stop by for that.

If you missed meeting Jules, do stop by Tuesday's post to meet her, and if you missed meeting Nick, be sure to drop by yesterday's post to meet him.

Just in case anyone missed it,  here is the Goodreads synopsis for the book

Jules Parish has screwed up.

After three years of boosting cars, she got caught. She's too good to get caught, but she let her (ex)-boyfriend talk her into a questionable job. And now, she and her little sister, Emma, will be kicked out of their foster home, left to survive on the unforgiving streets of Las Vegas alone.


Eccentric, wealthy Roger Montgomery wants to open up his mansion to Jules and Emma. The only catch? Jules must steal seven of the rarest, most valuable muscle cars in the world—in seven weeks. Even worse, she’s forced to put her trust in three complete strangers to help her do it.

First there’s Chelsea, the gorgeous redhead with a sharp tongue and love for picking locks. Then there’s Mat, who hasn’t met a system he couldn’t hack. And finally there’s the impossibly sexy car thief Nick, whose bad attitude and mysterious past drive Jules crazy.

With nothing in common and everything to lose, can Jules and her amateur crew pull off what could be the biggest car heist in history? Or will things spin out of control faster than a Nevada dust devil? 
Meet Chelsea, a girl who I could totally be friends with. We'd have epic Taylor Swift dance parties and swear up a storm.

Name: Chelsea Lynch
Age: 17
Favourite Movie: Pretty Woman
Favourite Car: Lamborghini Veneno 
Top 3 Favourite Songs: Royals by Lorde, ANYTHING by Taylor Swift, One More Night by Maroon 5
Favourite Quote: “Get in loser. We’re going shopping.” (from Mean Girls)

I pretty much want to watch Pretty Woman now.


Here are Chelsea's favourite songs via Spotify. I've basically been blasting Royals since I got these interview questions back.

Now, you may be thinking... I thought she liked Taylor Swift. She does! I couldn't find Taylor on Spotify so here is a video where I hear Taylor bares a resemblance to Chelsea (the red hair) and because I ALSO LOVE TAYLOR, I am including Blank Space. 

Blank Space is my favourite Taylor Swift video (and I love this song so much). I am pretty sure Chelsea would love both of these videos as well.

Next, meet  Matias, a guy who will win the hearts of the people not already in love with Nick. He's a sweetheart, and also happens to be a talented hacker.

Name: Matias “Mat” Rojas
Age: 16
Favourite Movie: The Godfather 
Favourite Car: James Bond’s Aston Martin—for all the gadgets. (Mat isn’t much into actual cars…his fascination is more with their toys.) 
Top 3 Favourite Songs: Take Me To Church by Hozier, Until We Go Down by Ruelle, Pistols at Dawn by Senabo Sey 
Favourite Quote: “Do, or do not. There is no try.” ~ Yoda 

Here is where I admit I have never seen the Godfather, or a James Bond movie.


Here are Matias' favourite songs via Spotify. This is all new to me music so if nothing else this feature has broadened my music exposure.

Hopefully this tease has made you excited to meet Chelsea and Matias! You can do so by picking Overdrive up from your local bookstore or any of the following retailers

Tomorrow, you'll get to read my review, and I'll be giving away a copy of Overdrive, plus a copy of Dawn's first book, along with some swag!
