Give a brief description of the story.
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 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 yrs 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 medically retired Marine, Casey Carter is sexy, but can’t get passed their twelve 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.
What did you think the author did particularly well?
I love the chemistry between Alexa and Casey. There were sparks from the very first meeting, but the age difference was such a hang up for Alexa the sexual tension was a slow build until they got to know each other. By the time they got together I was cheering them on.
What was your favorite thing about the story?
The idea of an older heroine who was still sexy and confident in herself was a wonderful thing and the premise fresh.
Those who enjoy Nora Ephron movies will love Dating A Cougar.
