A story in the Cougar Challenge series.
Encouraged by friends she met at RomantiCon, widowed landscape contractor Giselle Sheridan decides she’s finally ready to take the cougar challenge and explore sex with a younger man. Except she’s too busy during planting season to go on the prowl.
CPA Conlan Trowbridge is battling the IRS deadline for his clients, but when Giselle saunters into his office with a tax question, all he can think of is sex. She’s all luscious curves and smoldering brown eyes, and he doesn’t care if she’s a dozen years older, she’s a wet dream come true.
Oh yeah, they’re both ready for some hot and heavy sex—in the tub, parking lots, their offices—anywhere and everywhere. But Giselle is afraid her age will eventually bother Con, and her longtime foreman also has designs on her, in more ways than one. When Giselle faces some hard decisions, will she ultimately be able to keep the heat?
Crunching the Numbers…..
Tax season will never be looked at the same. Gizelle sets her eyes on her aunt’s CPA agent and is ready for him to rock her world and Con just can’t wait.
This was a fun and sexy story to read. I really liked that Gizelle was ready to move on in her life after her husband passed away and ready for a new start. There is only one problem, she is set to find herself a younger man that can give her want she wants but things get a little complicated with one of her employees. You'll have to read so you can see what Larry really wants from Gizelle and to what extremes he has gone to get her. Gizelle is a bright, independent woman but needs to go with her desires once in a while. I wanted to see a little more of the development of the relationship of Gizelle and Con. They had a great connection from the moment they first set eyes on each other. When Con went to see Gizelle for the first time what came to mind was nerd and not very self confident but all that changes as he explores Gizelle, he is ready for anything and not afraid to take charge. The sex scenes are hot and sexy and there is also a christening of a love seat in this book—amazing.
This book is a hot, fast read. There were moments that I wanted more but overall it was a good book. I’ll happily recommend this book to anyone ready for a little cougar challenge.
