Mark envies his friend Bastian and the Cougar who tamed him. For years he’s had his eye on a sexy, older, married woman. Despite his and Bastian’s sharing women, he refuses to poach outside his steamy fantasies.
Sloan travels with the race car drivers as the league’s publicist. Living abroad can be lonely, especially when touring somewhere like China—where beautiful landscapes surround them but language and cultural barriers are high. Until she meets Lynn, who shares her love of erotic romances. In Lynn, she gains more than a friend—because sexy-as-sin navigator Mark is never far from the Cougar and her fiancé, making Sloan wonder if it’s time rejoin the dating scene after a nasty divorce.
When Lynn notices the chemistry between Mark and Sloan, she issues the Cougar Challenge. Sloan expected fantastic sex. But she never imagined her relationship with Mark would empower him to explore the sexual tension building between him and Bastian…
Four friends, two couples…one night none of them will forget.
Sloan is a publicist for a racing circuit and travels all around the world with them. With only herself as company she turns to steamy romance novels to keep her company, until she meets Lynn and her whole world is turned upside down. While Lynn may have given her the website address to The Cougar Challenge, Sloan takes it to a whole other level with her cub, Mark.
Mark has spent years lusting over sexy Sloan but stayed at a distance because she was married. Once he hears that she is now divorced, all bets are off. Although the relationship starts off fast Sloan help him discover things about himself he never knew. But will she give him what he wants the most, her heart?
While I didn’t get the first installment to the dual story for the cougar challenge I never felt lost, so this story easily stands alone. Mark is a perfect alpha male and you can see that he truly cares for Sloan from the very beginning. Sloan is a great leading woman. She is what every cougar should be and then some.
Ms. Rylon never fails to steam up the windows with her sex scenes. Once I started reading this book I could not put it down. With every turn of the page I felt more in touch with the characters and couldn’t help but fall in love with them. The descriptions of the places they travel are so very well put that you can almost visualize yourself there.
If you're looking for a solid story full of hot love scenes with plenty of heart, you definitely have to get this book. You won’t be disappointed.
