I honestly loved this book so much! I am huge fan of Lily Ryan. Here is your warning stock up on tissues. I cant remember the last time I cried that much during a book. You can honestly feel all the emotions Lily puts into this book. I didn't make it through the first chapter before I had tears rolling down my face. I honestly love books that bring me to tears. You know its a good book when you get so into it that you are crying. I was hooked from the very first sentence. I feel in love with Kim ...more

“Yikes. I am worse. I’m a horny old spinster!”

“Tears fill my eyes as blackness creeps in from every angle. My brain can’t process. My heart is about to explode. My lungs don’t want to pull in air. My body knows and now, with the blackness overtaking everything else, it’s shutting down.”

Ok, that was in the first chapter! It has been a long time since a book has elicited tears in the first chapter. And, d*mn if it wasn’t a good emotional ride from beginning to end.

The last two years of Kim’s life

I have only read one other book from this author and I loved it but I wasn't sure how this particular genre would agree with me, but I needed to read more from her so I wanted to take a chance. I LOVE when my chances always end up being WAY more than I expected or even thought it could turn out.

Cougarlious by Lily Ryan is a second chance romance that you won't be able to put down until the last page. This is not my first book by this author but it is my favorite of hers. I love how this author can pull me into her stories with ease and keep me engaged. Her characters made me feel as if I was right there with them. They took me on a roller coaster ride of various emotions including a few tears. She did leave me sitting on the edge of my seat a few times just waiting to see what was goin ...more

Ooh I love these kinds of stories! Older woman, younger man...nothing but roadblocks in between! I think what I enjoy about these stories is that more often than not, they involve kids and kids bring a different element to the story. The parent always has to be more cautious just because they can't just think about themselves when making relationship decisions. I find this brings a more intense element to the angst level and that is what I crave when I read. That emotional reaction. Readers will ...more

She begins spending time with him and feeling alive again. She does have her doubts regard

Cougarlicious by Lily Ryan is a story of second chances after a tragic loss with an added twist of an older woman/younger man. This is not my first encounter with Ms Ryan so I jumped on the story after reading the blurb! It is great to read so skilfully and artfully written books where the dynamics between women and men have turned upside, sort of …. There are not so many stories with older women/younger men that do not come cross too sleazy or …

The name of this book is called, “Cougarlicious by Lily Ryan. In the mist of preparing dinner, doing laundry, eating, and putting my kids to bed I read this entire book. It was completely and utterly captivating!!!!!!!!!! There were quite a few issues in this story that kept me turning each page regardless of what I was doing at the same time. The main characters, Chance and Kim were amazing together. They had crazy text messages sent back and forth to each other. They seemed to be an awesome co ...more

This was definitely a refreshing read! I loved how the roles were uniquely reversed, in that the male hero was all in in terms of a relationship, yet the heroine was extremely hesitant. I understand Kims hestitantion, In that she has gone through a significant amount of emotional trauma by losing her husband.
My favorite part of this book had to be the age difference between the characters-yet their intense chemistry that was present. I felt the heat wholeheartedly and it was easy to see that bo

COUGARLICIOUS is the story of a woman in her early 40s (widowed with a child) and a man in his late 20s (coach to the woman's child). The story flows fast and the characters are obvious in their intentions from the very beginning, but there was just something that bugged me about it.

The story had a very definite beginning, middle and end (even though the end came up very quickly) and there were a few twists and turns along the way. I skipped through most of the sex scenes because they were kind

For some reason I can never really connect with older woman, younger men. Maybe because I find older men more attractive, or it always seems like older woman have such an issues with the age gap.... I don’t know, but that part of the story wasn’t my favorite and that was just a personal preference and didn’t make this book bad. I liked the characters, and the romance that we got. You really could feel that attraction and connection that Kim and Chance. My heart broke for Her and seeing her still ...more

How fun is this book!? So many times, these kinds of stories are shallow and just focus on the age difference and not WHY someone would choose someone with an age gap. And, more often than not, these stories focus on an older man going after the younger woman, who is often a virgin. Boring! But NOT this book! Here, we get to see the older woman and younger man drawn to each other and we even get to see why a younger man would be attracted to an older female! There are so many emotions and layers ...more
