Buck Naked (Cougarville #1) by Evangeline Anderson

Sadie Becker is not herself. A 40-year-old, divorced mother of two, Sadie wakes up one morning and realizes that she looks and feels like she did in her twenties. Suddenly she’s unable to walk around in her new town of Cougarville without men falling at her feet. Confused and alone, Sadie isn’t sure who to turn to…except answers to her problems might reside with her broodingly handsome reclusive neighbor, Mathis.

An alpha shifter, Mathis lost the love of his life, and he knows he’ll never find another mate. But his innocent new neighbor clearly doesn’t know the danger she’s in, and he's the only one who can save her.

But when the attraction pulls too strong, will Mathis’ animal nature be unleashed and claim Sadie for his own? Buck Naked is a sexy, emotional thrill-ride that will hook readers on this fantastic new series.

I wanted to read this book because of the summary. It looked SUPER interesting and super unique. Also I was in a fun reading mood. Buck Naked is hilarious, fun and highly entertaining. I enjoyed it a lot and this will not be my last book by Evangeline Anderson.

Buck Naked is a standalone and is part of the Cougarville series. So, the Heroine is Sadie and she just moved to a town called Cougarville. She’s a single divorced mom and she’s in her 40’s. Typically I don’t read books where the woman is older, but there’s something magical in the air and all of sudden Sadie looks and feels like she did when she was in her twenties! Come on, that’s too good.

Even though she is a single mom, her kids are all grown up, so there is none of them in the book. I was a little disappointed in that because I LOVE single parent books, but that’s okay.  So, she’s in this new town and all the men want her for some reason. I’m not talking about men flirting, I’m talking about men fighting and acting crazy to be with Sadie and it’s completely adorable and awesome to read.

Mathis lives next door to Sadie and he doesn’t like her. He once had a mate ten years ago and vowed to never mate again. BUT there’s something about Sadie that makes her so appealing. It’s very hard for Mathis to stay away from her.

I liked Mathis. At times he drove me a little batty because he couldn’t get over his dead ex. The tension between Sadie and Mathis was heavy.  Both wanted each other, but Mathis tries very hard to say no.

Overall, this book is really cute. I enjoyed the men fighting over Sadie. I enjoyed reading Sadie trying to figure out what’s going on. I enjoyed Mathis working through his issues.  This is a paranormal book, so there’s going to be shifters in this book. I won’t say anymore because I feel like it’s best to discover as you read.

If you are looking for a fun paranormal read, then this one is for you.

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.
