Publisher's Summary

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.

Lacking the claws

I was hoping for a more stimulating listen but it was just a lackluster love story. Of course the cougar is a hot sexy older woman but the story hasn't given her a hot passionate romance that I was expecting. After all in this situation I would expect that. So for me this was a wasted credit. It's just a average story and who wants that?

- Leesa "I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end."


What made the experience of listening to Dating a Cougar the most enjoyable?

This is the first audible book I have listened to. I received a free copy from the author in exchange for a review. It was interesting to listen to the inflection in narrator's voice and get a visual picture of what was happening.

What about Anne Johnstonbrown’s performance did you like?

About a third of the way through the book, she really seemed to start putting more emotion into her voice and that made the book come alive!!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I had read this book several times in the past, but when the hero was injured toward the end of the book, I almost cried!! The emotion in the narrator's voice combined with the words really brought that portion of the book to life!!

Any additional comments?

Based on my experience with this audible book, I may have to get more audibles!
