Dating a Cougar by Donna McDonald

The Never Too Late Series is Sexy Romantic Comedy for the Over 40 Crowd.

After two decades of looking for true love and never finding it, aging model and lingerie designer, Alexa Ranger, had finally given up searching. It’s shocking at fifty to find herself wanting a sex life again, and even more shocking to be an older woman attracted to a younger man.

Thirty-eight year old, medically retired Marine, Casey Carter, is incredibly sexy, but a relationship with the man is totally out of the question. Casey is related to her daughter’s boyfriend. The last thing Alexa needs is another talk-show worthy drama in her already complicated life, no matter how well Casey kisses.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I first read this book in 2012, and immediately bought and read all the others in the series – and then all the Art of Love series, by Ms. McDonald. I just love her writing style and her concentration on generally slightly older people who have their own minds and priorities sorted out. They then get hit in various ways by Cupid and their lives change. Each story is different, yet the underlying values and desires are all the same – and the outcomes are delicious.

So when we were asked to choose our own books to share with you, I had to review this book and I know that I will be revisiting the rest of the series again when I get the time!

Alexa is a very independent and successful woman who is now 50 years old and watching her daughter date. She still retains the beauty of her modelling youth, and has two fabulous friends who she shares her time with, as well as an unconventional relationship with Jenna's father, her ex-husband. She is missing/not missing having a man in her life – years of disappointments are fresh in her memory (and that of the world thanks to the press) so she is not entirely receptive when Casey makes a play. Watching the two of them dance the dance is truly delightful and I loved how much this book made me laugh, want things to work out, and I really was there wishing them well. Even though I knew exactly what was going to happen – I really did remember the whole story, even after 3 years, and many, many books! – I was totally immersed in the story and loved it just as much as last time.

I really do recommend that you try this book, and hope that you enjoy it as much as I did.

After 35 years of doing everything for a living except writing books, I finally published my first romance novel in March of 2011. Thirty plus novels later, I am living my own happily ever after as a full time romance author.

I do my best to give back to the universe by hanging out to write at local coffee shops and helping keep them in business. When not at one of those, I am sitting in my office at a monstrous black desk I bought from my sister which my husband lovingly refers to as my “table.”

My work spans several romance genres, such as contemporary, paranormal, and science fiction. Humor is the most common element across all my writing. Addicted to making readers laugh, I include a good dose of romantic comedy in every book.
