Marcy Brown can’t get enough of Lucky, her massage therapist. Lucky’s fingers always linger dangerously close to…sensitive areas, and ignite a fire she can’t ignore. Marcy isn’t looking for a relationship, but a friend with benefits would be right up her alley. The women of her fave blog, Tempt the Cougar, swear by younger men, but Marcy doesn’t want to train someone. She wants a man who can give her orgasm after orgasm.

Lucky offers to be her secret lover and help her realize all her fantasies. With Lucky, Marcy discovers the thrill of sexual positions and taboos she’s been missing out on—up to and including sex with two gorgeous men at once.

All bets are off when this Cougar is challenged to get her growl on.

Who would have ever guessed that it would be fashionable for an older woman to meet, seduce and marry a much younger man? Not too long ago it was considered nothing less than scandalous, even immoral. Well, men have been doing it forever so why not even off the statistics a little?

Meet Marcy Brown, 41 yeasr-old, whose husband left her for a much younger woman. A business card that advertises a blog for woman interested in younger men gives her the courage to go forth into that good night. But she just can’t stop thinking about getting lucky, literally -- she wants her massage therapist, Lucky, who rubs her in all the right places. When she reveals all her fantasies to him on the massage table, well, um, the tables are turned and Lucky is the man for the job. Lucky releases her inner self and off she goes where she has never dared to venture before.

Marcy is that everyday woman, not a superwoman or gorgeous model but the kind of woman you would sit down next to in the hair salon or stand behind in the grocery store. She has all the insecurities of a older woman and you feel it along with her. She is me and you and she is brave enough to finally go after what she most desires, Lucky and happiness.

The romance between them is hot and sweet and uncomplicated however, when Lucky turns out to have an identical twin, the story gets a little murky and the sex scenes become a little staggered, slow and uncomfortable but you get the idea. All throughout the story the characters are dealt unexpected curves and how they deal with them is simple and quick and little unrealistic but this is a fantasy book and as such, it delivers all the punch that is necessary to transport you to the life of the characters.

You feel for Marcy and root for Lucky and hope it all wraps up into a neat little bundle. Will all older women wind up with a studly, sexy, perfect young man. No, but it is nice to know some will.
