Forty-one-year-old Nicole Woods was content raising her son alone, working as an ad exec, and indulging in the more than occasional cleaning frenzy...until the night she met Wil Blanco.

Her friends have decided that while her son is away for six weeks, it's the perfect opportunity for Nicole to have a summer fling. Heading the top of the list is Wil -- sexy, successful, full of life...and twenty-five!

Regretfully, Nicole declares him "hands-off," but soon he's complicating everything, from her job at the advertising agency to her self-imposed ban on relationships. When Wil becomes her top client, she has even more reason to adhere to her "hands-off" policy. So why is Nicole finding it so hard to keep her hands off him?

Reviewed by: Karina Book provided by: Publisher Review originally posted at Romancing the Book I wanted to have a break from YA books so when I saw this Contemporary book, I didn’t hesitate to request it for review. What made me want to read it is the plot itself. I’ve known people who had relationships with 10-20 years age gap and I wanted to know how it will be translated in the book. The Accidental Cougar is a fast-paced, fun and steamy read. I liked how it started. It instantly caught my attention which made me turn each page with ease. The main character, Nicole Woods is a 41-year-old single mom who just focuses in her son, work and no fun. She came out from a divorce years ago so it’s understandable she’s afraid to find love and trust men again. She’s beautiful in and out, genuinely nice and loves her son and friends unconditionally. Then here comes Wil, a gorgeous and successful 25-year-old guy who wishes to be a part of Nicole’s life even if it’s just a summer fling. It’s obvious that he’s attracted to her but it seems Nicole won’t make it easy for him. I really love his personality! He’s real; he knows what he wants and will do anything to have it. He’s hardworking and a very passionate guy that’s why he’s so successful at such a young age. Both of these characters are very likeable. I liked how the main and the supporting characters blend together- Nicole’s friends and workmates, then Wil’s family. For the first part, I was just a bit confused as to who is who because there were a bunch of characters. It took time for me to be familiar with them. As expected, the book contains some sweet, steamy scenes. But the steamy meter is not on full blast. I can’t explain why, but it needs more! Overall, I really enjoyed the book. It touches not just about romance and love but also about family and friendship. It is highly recommended to those who love Contemporary and Romance Genres.

I cannot begin to express how glad I am to have taken part in The Accidental Cougar book tour. The last few days have been filled with mostly non-fiction reads so when I started this one I was grateful for the change and it was wonderful to find a new author to read as well. The Accidental Cougar was a well written romance novel that focuses on 41 year old Nicole and Wil her 25 year old love interest whilst her teenage son is away from home for six weeks one summer. Right off the bat I liked Nicole, I wasn't expecting to connect with her character as much as I did but I really liked her. I thought she was smart funny and a lot stronger than even she seemed to think she was. I loved how much she cared for her son and how she always put others before herself. I also really liked Wil, despite the fact that he's 16 years younger than Nicole he sees how beautiful she is and sees how worthy she is of love and devotion. I was also surprised by how much I liked Wil. He could be very sweet and I found that completely endearing. The overall plot was a good one. I'm a strong believer in the fact that an older woman is worthy of love and affection and if she chooses to find that in a younger man then who cares? This was a great romance novel with extremely likable characters, and of course just the right amount of drama. This book was the perfect escape for me when I read it and I loved the fact that the author made her characters so real. I highly recommend The Accidental Cougar to everyone looking for their next great romance read. If you like contemporary romance novels than I suggest you head on over to your favourite e-book seller and pick a copy up! I can't wait to read more by Tiffany N. York and hope she continues writing. * I received a free complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

This was my first romance novel and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I usually read action/spy/thriller novels. The book was light, funny and kept me entertained through out the read. The characters were interesting and easy to follow. I'm looking forward to more of Tiffany's writing in the future!
