Freakn’ Cougar: Freakn’ Shifters #6 by Eve Langlais

A new release for fans of Eve Langlas’ Freakn’ Shifters series!

Book Review:

I admit it – I was a latecomer to the awesomesauce that is a story by Eve Langlais.   Freakn’ Cougar is the first of her Freakn’ Shifters series that I have read, but it won’t be the last.  But, I am quickly catching up to all the fun contained in the pages.

Someone is responsible for killing shifters: not the truly bad ones that have gone rogue and were not dealt with via the council, but ordinary criminals.  Found dead in their cells, with little to no evidence.  While the police and the shifter council both suspect an inside job, they also want to catch the perpetrator while keeping their own kind safe.

Patricia was wonderfully drawn and developed:  still reeling from the loss of her mate, she is throwing herself into her work.  Unfortunately, for her, the encounter with Stu’s family throws her carefully laid plans in ruins: she can’t believe that her senses are telling her he is a possible mate, and the boisterous behavior of his family and his mother’s quiet determination are daunting.  When she encounters Ricky and has a similar reaction to him, she is convinced that her body has betrayed her, and does all that she can to deny the attraction.

Stu is adorably inept in his flirting, but so thoughtful and quiet in his confidence and determination to give Patricia the choice in her future.  His logical thought process combined with his technological knowledge and sneakiness earned from years as the younger brother determined to ‘get even’ make him a quiet hero figure, and his unkempt wolf and the puppyish exuberance make him an instant favorite.

For his part, Ricky is dark and dangerous, like the panther that is his other self.  With a brashness honed by a rough life that wasn’t always on the straight and narrow, his interest is wholly personal: his brother was killed by this shifter murderer and he wants revenge.  Years ago, prison might have been the proper setting for Ricky, but he’s done much to redeem his ill-spent youth, and he was hoping to help his brother do the same.

These three have several interesting interactions: Stu baiting Ricky much like he would his older brothers, Ricky trying to scare Stu, Patricia’s alternating between submission and avoidance to the men’s reactions.  Stu helps Ricky to think before he allows his animal to take, and Ricky helps Stu learn the advantages of brawn over brain.  Together, they present Patricia with an unusual, yet not unheard of challenge: two men, both fated as her mate.  None of them could envision the connection that binds them together, even if it isn’t always a smooth journey.

Written with Langlais’ clear sense of humor and fun: these are stories that are enjoyable, sexy and don’t take themselves too seriously.  This is fun people – and everyone, from the author to the characters wants you to join in and enjoy it as well.  Yes, there are moments where the danger and action take over: but there is always a lightness and a freedom in the writing and characters that keeps you grinning, even when it may not be quite “appropriate”.  I have yet to read a book from Langlais that didn’t encourage me to read more….

Forget taming their cougar. These young studs want her as is, even if she scratches.

Someone’s killing shifters in prison, and Patricia needs help catching the culprit. The cougar enlists the help of Stu and Ricky, a techno geek and a reformed criminal, a mismatched pair, who turn out to also be her mates. But Patricia’s already loved and lost one man. Does she dare allow herself to care again?

Older isn’t just wiser, it’s sexier, or at least that’s what a socially challenged wolf and a bad boy panther think. Forced to work together to catch a killer, Stu and Ricky soon find out they’ll have to learn to do more than tolerate each other when they realize one hot forty-something cougar is their mate. Can they find a way to work together and make their cougar purr?

About Eve Langlais

Hello, my name is Eve. I'm a stay at home mom who works as a webmistress/customer service rep and in between juggling my three kids, hubby, and housework, I write really raunchy stuff--usually with werewolves lol.

I was born in British Columbia, but being a military brat, I have lived a little bit everywhere--Quebec, New Brunswick, Labrador, Virginia (USA) and finally Ontario. My family and I currently live just outside Ottawa, our nation's capital.

I tend to have a lot of sexual tension in my tales because I think all torrid love affairs start with a tingle in our tummies. And when my characters do finally give in to the needs of their flesh? Well, let's just say, you shouldn't be reading my stuff at work. The door is wide open, explicit and hot. Really, really hot.

I love to write, and while I don't always know what my mind is going to come up with next, I can promise it will be fun, probably humorous and most of all romantic, because I love a HEA.
