Today’s Cozy Read selection is Accidental Cougar by Tiffany N. York. 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’s some romance going on but it’s definitely spoiled by the vulgarity and I learned way more than I needed to about ‘Brazilian waxing’. So much is so much better when left to the imagination — people can take out of it what they want.
The cover might have been a tip-off although I’ve seen worse. I strictly stay away from covers with bare-chested men with rippling ribs but this didn’t look too bad. The author (pseudonym?) dedicated this novel to her mother. I wouldn’t want my mother to read it — period. Especially if I’d written it! I started it, I have a goal to read 75 books, and I’m a few behind, so I finished it and am reviewing it. Not for me. *
