Jayne sure does know how to write a steamy book, and I have always available admired her ability to inject humor and sizzling amounts of heat into her books. Shifting Gears was no exception, and these two characters were perfectly matched. My only issue was the rushed feel of the book, and the conflict just seemed rather ridiculous to me. I'm not going to spoil what happens, but I just felt like it was forced and out of place with what was going on in the story. Overall though, I did enjoy this ...more

Sloan is a publicist for the racing circuit and loves to read romance novels. She meets Lynn and they start talking about books. One thing leads to another and Lynn introduces her to the cougar blog she belongs to. Mark has had a crush on Sloan for a while but never approached her because she was married. Once he finds out she is divorced, he pursues her and sparks fly! Jayne Rylon has written another hot book and that's no surprise. I am really enjoying this series and I know you will too.
I am kinda iffy about the whole cougar series. It was a great idea but I felt like some of the stories were missing something. This one really delivered with the heat and the story was nice too!

And oh boy there is some MM action so hot you'll need to soak in an ice bath to cool off!

Very steamy and hot reads! The fellas are young and virile and the ladies are older vibrant and looking for action!
*3.5 stars*
I thought this was a hot follow up to Driven. I'm still not a huge fan to instant love but this one really was so hot, I overlooked it. I especially loved the (view spoiler). And the ending was sweet. Overall, I thought it was a cute read.

Loved this series. Great storyline. Characters radiated chemistry. The sex was hot enough to burn. Would have loved to had a scene from the honeymoon, though. If this is your style of books, you don't want to miss this series. Go Jayne!

Short and Steamy doesn't quite cover it. WOW. This book is delicious and I would recommend you get it immediately following the first book - Driven. Both are seriously hot. Books this hot don't normally have much of a story but I did enjoy the story as well although I would have loved more. Jayne Rylon is now one of my favorite authors!

3.75 out of 5. A continuation of another Cougar Challenge story involving the international race world. A very erotic novella with some interesting contexts and certainly a number of romantic encounters. Like so many stories in this series, just way too short.
