DATING A COUGAR

After several decades of looking for true love and never finding it, aging model and lingerie designer, Alexa Ranger, has finally given up the search. A couple of years ago, she got tired of the game completely and just stopped dating. Now friends and family keep her mostly content, so it’s shocking at 50 years old to find herself suddenly wanting a sex life again. It’s even more shocking to be attracted to a much younger man this time. She definitely thinks Casey Carter is sexy, but not handling her own age well, Alexa just can’t get passed their 12 year age difference to even consider a fling. Not that it matters anyway, anything resembling a normal dating relationship is totally out of the question because Casey is related to and living with her daughter’s boyfriend.
The very last thing Alexa needs is yet another talk-show-worthy drama in her already complicated life, no matter how amazing Casey’s kisses make her feel. For a couple of years, 38 year old medically retired Marine Casey Carter, believed his military injury had made him impotent. Having lost his wife to cancer, he hadn’t exactly been worried about the problem. Most days walking with a cane was enough challenge for him. But now that he was ready to move on with his life, he had become more worried when none of the females his cousin brought around held any interest for him. So the last woman in the world he expected to start his engine revving again was the mother of his cousin’s girlfriend.
Even at 50, Alexa is drop-dead gorgeous, and his libido certainly keeps reminding him she is the first woman he has wanted in a long, long time. Ironically, the more Casey gets to know and like Alexa, he finds out desiring the older woman is the easiest part. Jaded and cynical about love, Alexa is a difficult woman to convince of anything, but her kisses are all the proof he needs that they belong together. The former Marine decides his next mission is figuring out how to fit himself into her life.

I really liked Anne Johnstonbrown as the narrator for this story. Since it is told from Alexa’s POV, Ann had the perfect voice to pull you in and make you feel like you were listening to the character telling you her story.
I love the fact that the author stepped away from the younger characters that are so popular right now. She gave us a H/h that some of us feel we can better relate to. The conversations between Alexa nad her friends had me laughing out loud and aome of the antics between the couple were just as funny. This was a great fun read where not only the main characters but also the secondary characters were a blast !
