Dating A Cougar (Never Too Late #1)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 Casey Carter is sexy, but not handling her own age well, Alexa just 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. For a couple of years, 38 yr 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 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 fifty, 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.

MY REVIEW:

I really enjoyed this book. Yes, ok, it has a lot of very steamy scenes. But the story line behind that is so much more it is great story writing, you just don't want to put down. Casey is an ex- Marine injured in combat after being total military for 18 yrs. He is only 38 but has lived a lifetime because he has raised his only other living relative who is only 9 yrs. younger then him since Seth was 12 with the help of the then wife Susan who died of cancer 6 months after he was discharged due to his hip replacement. Now here we are, Seth has graduated Harvard & 2 yrs. have passed since Susan's death & Casey is ready to move on. So he moves in with Seth. Happens to meet Seth's girlfriend's mom & his world becomes brighter again. One small problem, she's 50. Not only that she is set in her ways, has a mind of her own, has been hurt before by men, has created her own empire, & craves companionship but is so very fearful. But Casey with his crude military ways & his brash youth brakes through a lot of chains she had locked her heart in. Not to mention her lust. The dynamics of her friends & family are so typical of today's households that it makes you laugh out loud all the stuff that happens. As well as makes you cry & angry. I found myself looking at Alexa & thinking you are a 50 yr. old accomplished woman act like it. Other times feeling extreme sorrow for her & others just cracking up. The twist & turns are many in this book but very worth reading.
