Cougars is by Strebor author Earl Sewell. Mr. Sewell brings us a taboo story of older women, younger men, and lots of sexual energy.
Jasmine Sallie is a forty-something woman who has managed to outwit father time with her beauty and physical fitness. Jasmine is out to enjoy life and have lots of sex. Discretion is not one of her strong suits and she soon finds herself getting a little too comfortable with Travis Adams.
Things get a bit more complicated when Travis applies for his dream position at Headroom Pharmaceuticals and lands the job. Much to his surprise and pleasure, Miss Jasmine turns out to be his boss and they start a behind the scenes office romance.
As a researcher, Alex is assigned a project to create a woman’s version of the drug Viagra. He takes his job and his assignment serious—a little too serious.
Soon Alex’s determination to get this drug on the market turns into greed and deception.
Upon first reading Cougars, I had to put it down, as it was a slow read for me. It was after I picked Cougars back up that I began to enjoy this tile from Mr. Sewell, only to put it down towards the end. I started wanting to give this book a three, and then a four, and then back to a three. However, I am certain others have and will enjoy this title.
