Patty has never tried being a cougar before, but tonight feels like a good time to start.
The only bad thing about having summers off is the boredom. She loves being a professor, but the months off can seem to go on forever. Her new housemate Rhonda, acquired after Patty’s divorce, provides some entertainment by bringing home male eye candy from her nights out at the club. Patty can’t help but feel a little jealous.
Patty could attract a younger man if she wants to. Just last semester, a college student named Kenny gave her his number, but he was too shy to follow it up with asking her out. If there’s anything Patty’s learned that summer, it’s that she can’t always wait on someone else to make the first move.
She calls Kenny and invites him over. It’s time for Patty to take what she wants.

Goes down as another off my 2018 Bookworm Bingo Challenge – An erotica romance. I liked the flow of this one, had a good fun pace to it with Patty’s inner desires being awoken by her new carefree, wild roommates lifestyle. In turn making her want to take a chance on a missed opportunity with a younger guy she used to teach.
Rhonda is clearly a woman who has had enough of waiting around for a guy so is determined to go get them when the need strikes. From only being a roommate a week and having a new guy most of them Patty is thinking that there is something she is most definitely missing out on. Her confidence needs a boost and it looks like it’s going to get it.
After being kept up most of the night with Rhonda’s latest antics she is taken back to a moment where her teacher ethics almost went out the window. She had moments when younger guys would try to hit on her but none of them ever made her think twice. That was until Kenny. He was shy but made her feel things she thought she had forgotten. Giving her a book when he left her class was the last moment they were together. A book that happens to have his phone number in and temptation is never more at hand when she goes in search for it. She just hopes that he remembers her. Or more importantly that he was as into her as she thought.
Seems after a few tips and clues into how and why guys seem to fall under Rhonda’s spell she decides she is going to take a chance to see where it leads. Where it leads is somewhere very fun for both involved. It doesn’t take long for Patty to get the grips with her cougar role to take charge of what’s to come and turn her shy younger man into a bit of a wild beast. Seems Kenny didn’t really seem to mind finally getting what he had only wished for. Something both seem to be very happy with if the end result is anything to go by.
You quickly get pulled into the story and get a feel for the characters and their lives for a moment in time. Could this be the start of something new with Kenny, or maybe a new way of life in general, either way it looks like Patty’s inner desires have been ignited again and she doesn’t look like she wants them going out again any time soon.
