Samantha Becker is a busy and talented trauma surgeon with no time for nonsense. Her sister may have a special Shifter Gene, but Sammie is fairly certain she doesn’t have it, and she’s happy with her life the way it is. She doesn’t need the complicated Shifter lifestyle, and she certainly doesn’t need Liam Keller: Alpha cougar, Mayor of Cougarville and undercover billionaire. She hates him, but Liam is unable to get the curvy surgeon out of his head.
But the Shifter world isn’t ready to let Sammie go. She’s being stalked by someone who’s desperate for Shifter hormones, and Liam takes it upon himself to protect Sammie from harm. Things begin heating up between Sammie and Liam, but will they have to succumb to their inner animals in order to save Sammie’s life?
Cougar Bait is fun, sexy and will take readers on an emotional thrill ride.
I use to be like Samantha when I worked in the corporate world so I was able to relate to her character with complete compassion towards her reactions to various events and her insistence regarding her career. But there was a point I did want to knock some sense into her regarding her thoughts toward Liam Keller. But just like life I sat back watching as events unfolded causing chain reactions to her characters' further development as she opened her mind to the possibility of things being outside the ordinary.
Liam Keller, Alpha cougar and bad boy from book one, shows another aspect of his personality in this book and the reader will feel a shift in who or what they believe about him if they read it. Don't let this stop you from reading this book if you haven't because this book works as a standalone in my opinion. Liam is just plain hot, hot, hot and the love making scenes between them are even hotter.
There are some scenes between Samantha and a Hyena Shifter that are a little dark but it fits into the story and didn't distract me from continuing to read it. The author does a phenomenal job in the setup and continuance of this series so I am looking forward to Cooper's story which seems to be next.
Because she created a world that is not only sensual but one of a kind I give this 4 stars.
Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
