Darci-Rae Whitlam doesn’t know which is more disturbing, receiving scads of obscene phone calls—or getting so turned-on by said phone calls. Then there’s the email from her American friend, Rachel, taunting Darci with something called a Cougar Challenge. Just the thought of seducing a younger man is enough to permanently soak her knickers. No wonder her ever-disapproving sister thinks she’s oversexed!
Cybercrime Detective Jarrod St. James is investigating a case of stolen identity. He quickly learns the fiery redhead claiming to be Darci-Rae Whitlam is the real deal (his shoulder trapped in the jaws of her gargantuan dog might have sped that decision along). He really should go back to Sydney, continue tracking the imposter who’s operating a phone-sex business in Darci’s name…but the woman proves too tempting. Job be damned, he has to have her. The fact she’s got a titillating challenge to complete only helps his case.
Darci just may be the fastest cougar to snag her cub yet. Being the victim of a crime has never been more fun!
What do you get when you cross a cyber cop and a forty-year-old English teacher? One heck of an erotic romance story. Darci-Rae Whitlam is an undersexed English teacher, but after an email from a close friend Darci decides that sometimes age is just a number and can be ignored. And when it comes to sexy cyber “cub” cop Jarrod St. James, age is so not a factor.
Jarrod St. James is first and foremost a cop. When he started his career he never thought he would end up in cyber crimes, but the end result was the best thing that happened to him. After setting eyes on Darci he knew that not only was she the victim, she was also meant to be his. The only problem with his theory is that she's so hung up on their age difference.
This story turned out to be one of my favorites. Not only does Lexxie Couper pull you into the story, but she makes you not want to stop until the very last word. I loved how she made her heroine so attractive. And I loved the heart stopping description of the sexy man that takes Darci’s heart.
This books had some of the most well written sex scenes I have ever read. Not only are they vivid enough you are practically in the room with the characters, you also need a fan to cool down afterwards. This book is well worth purchase and a great addition to the Cougar Challenge series. I am in lust with this book as well as the line of books. Who says sex has to die at thirty? I sure hope when I reach this age I will be as energetic as the characters in this book.
