“I was in the horrible place where I felt nothing at all and was reading purely to get to the end. ”
~ Under the Covers

No matter how gorgeous Liam Keller is, Dr Samantha Beckett does not need the younger man and all his complications in her life. And by complications she means that he can turn into a Palaeolithic cougar and is determined to father some children on a woman, any woman it seems, as long as she has the shifter gene. Something that Sammie has and which makes her vulnerable to attack from the unsavoury underbelly of the shifter world. However, Keller is determined to protect Sammie, and not only because she saved his life or because she has the right genes.

I am keeping this review short and kind of sweet, this is something I sometimes do when I don’t like a book very much, as I quickly run out of politely worded and almost objective commentary about what I didn’t like. With Cougar Bait this isn’t the case. I didn’t dislike this book. I also didn’t like it either. Instead I was in the horrible place where I felt nothing at all and was reading purely to get to the end.

The problem was, was that I felt like I had read this book a thousand times before in various different places. It didn’t add anything that extra something, be it characters I really liked, or a storyline that I got drawn into, instead I faithfully read until I got to the end and didn’t really feel like I had garnered much enjoyment from the experience.

I would like to caveat this with I do normally like Anderson’s books, especially her Brides of the Kindred series, but Cougar Bait didn’t work for me.

About Evangeline Anderson

Evangeline Anderson is a registered MRI tech who would rather be writing. And yes, she is nerdy enough to have a bumper sticker that says “I’d rather be writing.” Honk if you see her! She is thirty-something and lives in Florida with a husband, a son, and two cats. She had been writing erotic fiction for her own gratification for a number of years before it occurred to her to try and get paid for it. To her delight, she found that it was actually possible to get money for having a dirty mind and she has been writing paranormal and Sci-fi erotica steadily ever since.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?

Thank you for the great and honest review. I have had this feeling before too where I didn’t dislike the book or like it either. I was just reading to get to the end. Hopeful your next read will be better.

That bites, thanks for the review.


I liked her first Brides book but not enough to continue with regularly.
