Lori Donovan accepts the Cougar Challenge and pledges to snag a hot young stud, knowing it’ll be tough once she moves back to her Texas hometown. She expects barren plains and rattlesnakes but finds hunky Jackson Blue drilling for oil on her property instead. A driller. Hmm. Lori has a few ideas about that and just about all of them involve her poor, needy, sex-starved body.

Jackson takes one look at the curvy, sexy, older woman and puts his expertise into action. After all, drilling is what he does best. Against the wall, on the floor or in the middle of her bed, he’s the right man for the job. It’s a hot time in Texas when a tough, sexy drillin’ man meets a sassy cougar, and playing it safe just isn’t an option.

Drilled is the next short story in the fabulous Cougar Challenge series and it packs a punch given that it’s only 82 pages. The chemistry between Lori Donovan and Jackson Blue is explosive and when they embrace their sexual desires, it’s like a volcano erupting in which the hot, molten lava destroys everything in its path. Lori and Jackson are two characters that you’ll quickly fall in love with as they address their fears and embrace their desires.

Despite their age difference, Jackson Blue knows exactly who he wants after meeting Lori Donovan for the first time. The woman is sexy, humorous, and gives him goose bumps in all the right places. It takes everything in his being not to take her directly to bed when they have lunch in his trailer. He knows that she’s been hurt by her ex-husband from the shadow of fear in her eyes, but he’s determined to prove that not all men are jerks. More importantly, he’s determined to prove that she’s one of the sexiest women he’s ever met. Will Jackson succeed and bring the Cougar out in Lori?

Lori Donovan has been leery of men since her divorce over two years ago when her husband left her for a younger woman. Imagine her surprise when she meets Jackson Blue and all of her pent up desires leap to the forefront sending mind-blowing, shivers down her spine. The man is sex personified, but he couldn’t possibly be interested in a woman who’s a decade older. Afraid of giving in to her Cougar desires, Lori does the only thing she can…she seeks advice from the other Cougars. Will Lori “cougarize” Jackson? Or, maybe he’ll “cougarize” her. Either way, these two are destined for some wild monkey sex that’s guaranteed to set your e-reader on fire.

Drilled is a captivating, well-written story in which the words flow across the page making it difficult to put the book down. Hence, if you’re looking for a sexy, intense, humorous, sophisticated story about rediscovering love, but more importantly ones self, then Drilled is definitely the book to read. Two thumbs up to Ms. Carlysle for providing us with the next scorching hot book in the Cougar Challenge series. I would definitely recommend Drilled to my friends.

Go, Regina!
I had the pleasure of reading Drilled and agree with the review!

Jackson and Lori are one sexy couple. The story IS intense and yet SO real.

Love it, love it, love it.

Being a Texas girl myself, I'm headed for the oil derricks to find myself a Jackson Blue!
