Seeing as I'm a newly single and divorced cougar, this story really spoke to me. The Cocky and the Cougar is a story about 38 year old, Director of Credit, Bella Swan. She is recently divorced from Professor Jacob Black (I just feel weird writing that.). Or rather, in the process of getting divorced from Professor Black. He was caught cheating with a graduate student in Bella's bed. Playing 'hiding the salami' as it were. I love that!
Bella and Jacob were married for thirteen years. Jacob was much older than Bella. His charisma lured her in. It also lured in several undergrads and graduate students as well. They decided to part ways when Jacob's latest trollop shows up pregnant. This causes Bella to laugh hysterically as she knew that Jacob didn't want children. Neither did she. That's why they were together for so long.
In walks in a much younger Edward Masen. He's the 27 year old Director of Sales. His cocky attitude drives Bella up the wall. In more ways than two. She finds him to be incredibly infuriating but positively adorable. Sparks fly and their chemistry is 'wicked.'
Now, life wouldn't be very interesting if there weren't plot bunnies. Yeah, those bunnies come from a wonderful jerk named James. Bella and James flirted at one point but now she regrets it. James just
won't let it go. He pushes her and things become quite heated and violent between Edward and James.
That's where I'm at right now...I'm pulled into this story as it kind of relates to me. Granted I'm not 38 and I don't have a hot, cocky, 27 year old man banging down my door. Definitely something that I'm hoping and wishing for, but won't get.
Read it...please. It's tres bien!
