Forty-one-year-old Nicole Woods was content raising her son alone, working as an ad exec, and indulging in the more than occasional cleaning frenzy...until the night she met Wil Blanco.

Her friends have decided that while her son is away for six weeks, it's the perfect opportunity for Nicole to have a summer fling. Heading the top of the list is Wil -- sexy, successful, ful

I ran across a book review in Romantic Times for this ebook. It is every older woman's dream. Imagine being
a 41 yr old single mom and meeting a 25 yr old hunk who is crazy for you. Win, win situation.
I am looking forward to more stories by Tiffany N. York. Good new writer.

Quick read

The story flowed real well I related to the characters. They could easily be my friends. The love scenes were sensuous not trashy.

I so loved this book every woman has to wonder what if? When they are getting older and another friends marriage bites the dust. Or the worst of all they lose their husband by their passing. My heart always breaks for them. Like Nicole my children had always been my life as they got older it had become harder the more they broke away.
But it’s natural and it’s a growing experience for both us and them. Yet, for Nicole to be sideswiped out of nowhere and be asked for a divorce she had no time to

A friend and I are of a particular age and we sometimes joke about women our age being "cougars" when they admire a younger man.  I thought this book was going to be one of humour.  It was not particularly.  I think it might have been meant to be a cozy read.  Possibly not.  Erotica might better describe it.  If you like being a voyeur to telephone sex, lap dancing (same sex partners), Nevada massages (a state where anything goes), lechers, and casual sex, then by all means, have a read.  There' ...more

The Accidental Cougar by Tiffany N. York
•Age is just a number
While Nicholas Don is away during the summer will she give herself a chance to play? Or will she continue to just hole up inside and deep clean? Maybe both? Is Will what she's been missing or is it a huge mistake to even think about it?? He's soooo young. Age is just a number right? You'll have to read The Accidental Cougar see what happens between Will and Nicole.... And her friends of course!! I enjoyed reading my first steamy novel

I received a copy from NetGalley; this is my honest review.
No-spoiler funny moments: "He always took his work home ... Imagine if he were a mortician!", "The only one that has gone down there lately is my gynecologist".
Fun, relaxing read. Starts being funny right at the beginning and doesn't stop until the the last few chapters. I thought the end was a bit abrupt and missing something - not sure what 1 star off).
The friends are all great supporters of each other, the dialogues engaging, and the

A fun quick read

I enjoyed the book but it's not one I feel I will reread and so I gave it a 3 star rating. It had moments of humor that had me laugh out loud and moments that made me enjoy the lead characters as a couple. But I felt the beginning of their romance was rushed. No slow burn. The Ladies Night part of the story was fun and reading familiar So Cal places was neat too. I would certainly right recommend this book to someone who was looking for an easy read with a little humor and romanc

A little abrupt with how quickly things moved along but it was a fun, good story. Loved the characters including the secondary. Would love a little more of the story.

Easy fun read!

The group of women’s outings were funny. The connection between Nicole and Wil was nice with some mild sexual content.

4 Stars

Every woman deserves that moment in her life where she feels treasured and cherished. There is no rule book that says the person cherishing you has to be your age, nor does it state that if you are a mom, your love life must be non-existent. For Nicole, she plays by those non-existent rules and lives a rather boring life using her son as an excuse not to live out her fantasies. A divorced mother with a teenage boy, Nicole often uses the

I cannot begin to express how glad I am to have taken part in The Accidental Cougar book tour. The last few days have been filled with mostly non-fiction reads so when I started this one I was grateful for the change and it was wonderful to find a new author to read as well.

The Accidental Cougar was a well written romance novel that focuses on 41 year old Nicole and Wil her 25 year old love interest whilst her teenage son is away from home for six weeks one summer. Right off the bat I liked Nico

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

I wanted to have a break from YA books so when I saw this Contemporary book, I didn’t hesitate to request it for review. What made me want to read it is the plot itself. I’ve known people who had relationships with 10-20 years age gap and I wanted to know how it will be translated in the book.

The Accidental Cougar is a fast-paced, fun and steamy read. I liked how it started. It instantly caught my attent

My Review:
This book was good. It's been six years since Nicole's divorce. Six years since she's had any sort of man besides her son in her life. Honestly, she hasn't even been interested. Her divorce was a surprise to her and left her with scars. So it's as surprising to her as it is to anyone when someone piques her interest. Even more surprising is that he's a guy who's sixteen years younger than her. To her code of ethics, that just isn't acceptable.

Wil missed that memo though and he isn't a

I’ll just say right away, I really enjoyed this story. I’m a total sucker for a good romance and well developed characters so The Accidental Cougar ticked all the boxes. Nicole is such a typical divorced mom. Once she is alone, her son becomes her world. How could she possibly expect to be in a relationship when she has her child to consider? And at 41, the chance of finding love again seemed daunting.

Enter sexy, confident, and YOUNG Wil Blanco. He has a thing for older women and he sets his eye

Nice diversion

Nothing outlandish, just wanted something light hearted and fun to read. There's someone for everyone, and this tale proves it.
Jan 16, 2017 rated it it was ok
The premise sounded interesting and completely different than the very worn out much older man with a barely legal girl. There were things about this story that were great but there wasn't enough of that for me to love it. Mostly because of Nicole's behavior, particularly at the end and even considering doing that for her "friend". Sorry but hell to the no, not to mention some friend to even put you in that situation. But then again her "friends" were ridiculous and quite frankly beyond annoying ...more

2.5 stars. I love older heroine/younger hero books but his one was, meah...too much time was spent on her friends. I really didn t care ab her family drama or her friends. When I finished I realized I didn t get enough time with Wil and he was the best thing ab the book. I would have loved to know more ab him, his dad, how he came to be so succesful etc. in stead we got endless women gossip and boring bs from the heroine. I felt she didn t do enough grovel after the way she treated him. He forga ...more

Well written and very hilarious the stories of four ladies,

and about earings, meow like cat, wood like dog
And the potato chips on the floor. I just laughed when Nicole thinking using a walker and Wil to be jogging by her side:::Hilarious, romantic, intense. Highly recommended.

Silly "Latin lover" housewife, wish list fantasy story with loose ends.
Aug 02, 2012 rated it it was amazing

This is my first romance novel and I was totally engrossed in it. It was a fun read and the characters were well developed and entertaining.

This was a decent read, not bad but nothing outstanding about it. I didn't really find the relationship between the hero and heroine to be believable.

Being "of a certain age" I thoroughly enjoyed the fantasy of a wealthy, hot 25-year old falling for the 40+ divorced, single mother. It was a fun, sexy read.
