Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Series: Cougarville #2
Title: Cougar Bait
Author: Evangeline Anderson
Publisher: Swerve, St Martin’s Press

Looking for a laugh out loud, suspense filled paranormal romance? Look no further – this is a great, well written read with plenty of drama, a variety of shifters and, of course, romance! After her sister went to stay in Cougarville, life changed for both sisters. For a start, her sister proved to have a very special shifter gene which had a dramatic effect on the alpha males in town and caused Samantha Becker to go visit- but you’ll have to read book one to find out more about that! One of the alpha males they met was the town’s Mayor, Liam Keller, who is a cougar shifter and a secret billionaire and he’s determined to protect Sammie, even if she doesn’t want protecting! Sammie is a trauma surgeon who doesn’t believe she has the special shifter gene like her sister, even though Liam insists she has. She’s also determined to attend and give a lecture at a special convention but Liam believes she’ll be in danger and takes his own steps to protect her, especially from the hyena shifters!
This is an action packed page turner with lots of hilarious moments as well as some dramatic, dangerous encounters. I thoroughly enjoyed escaping into it and hope there will be more in the series in future. Cougarville has some great characters as residents – Palaeolithic shifters who are absolutely huge – and I suspect more of them will be meeting their mates in future! You’ll also learn more about the effects of the special gene . . . . what a great and very different idea! If you enjoy paranormal romantic suspense with some steamy moments you’ll probably, like me, thoroughly enjoy this series, too.
I requested and was given a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion after choosing to read it.
Samantha Becker is a busy and talented trauma surgeon with no time for nonsense. Her sister may have a special Shifter Gene, but Sammie is fairly certain she doesn’t have it, and she’s happy with her life the way it is. She doesn’t need the complicated Shifter lifestyle, and she certainly doesn’t need Liam Keller: Alpha cougar, Mayor of Cougarville and undercover billionaire. She hates him, but Liam is unable to get the curvy surgeon out of his head.
But the Shifter world isn’t ready to let Sammie go. She’s being stalked by someone who’s desperate for Shifter hormones, and Liam takes it upon himself to protect Sammie from harm. Things begin heating up between Sammie and Liam, but will they have to succumb to their inner animals in order to save Sammie’s life?
Cougar Bait is fun, sexy and will take readers on an emotional thrill ride.
