Samantha Becker is a busy and talented trauma surgeon with no time for nonsense. Her sister may have a special Shifter Gene, but Sammie is fairly certain she doesn’t have it, and she’s happy with her life the way it is. She doesn’t need the complicated Shifter lifestyle, and she certainly doesn’t need Liam Keller: Alpha cougar, Mayor of Cougarville and undercover billionaire. She hates him, but Liam is unable to get the curvy surgeon out of his head.

But the Shifter world isn’t ready to let Sammie go. She’s being stalked by someone who’s desperate for Shifter hormones, and Liam takes it upon himself to protect Sammie from harm. Things begin heating up between Sammie and Liam, but will they have to succumb to their inner animals in order to save Sammie’s life?


There are certain series that after you read the first book you can't wait for more. Cougarville is one of those series. I knew right away when I read Buck Naked (still love this title) that I would be invested in the series. 

The characters jumped off the pages for me. It was like I was there with them. Nothing better than feeling like you are part of the story. 

You meet both Liam Keller & Samantha Becker in Buck Naked. Right away I thought these two were characters I wouldn't like. I can hear you guys now shouting out why? Let me explain. Keller came off like a real unfeeling dick. You couldn't at first see him as hero material. What you saw of him is what you got. There wasn't any real deep thoughts coming from him that explained why he was the way he was.

Like I said, a dick!

Not to worry, Samantha wasn't any betters. She was pretty self-adsorbed. And maybe a little cold thrown in there too. 

I knew their book was next and I was both worried and totally excited to read it. I love when a author flips the script on me and makes me fall for characters that I didn't like before. I will admit that I go into these books with the attitude of, give me your best shot! 

She did and I have to say it was wonderful! I totally loved the story. I learned so much more about Keller and Samantha! 

Both are such messed up people you can't help but feel bad for them. Most of the time they stand in their own way of happiness. Believe me when I say this, there are times when you want to crawl into the pages and slap them both upside the head!!!

All of what I talked about above really made the story. Its more emotionally driven then Naked Buck, the characters need more attention. 

Not only do you get to see the growth of the characters, (Keller turns out to be a great hero) you also see the main story line thread advance. You will start to understand what it's all about. It's looking like it is going to be a wonderful series. 

Now I'm going to have to sit here and wait for Reese's book, Stone Cold Fox (these titles rock) which comes out on August 1st! I know it's not that long of a wait but...

If you've read Cougar Bait or any other book by Evangeline Anderson I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡

Cougarville Series


  1. Loved the review. This sounds like a good book and one that I'd probably like. New author for me too. #getsocial17

    1. It was very good. Like I said, can't wait for the next one!

  2. Oh shifters! I love shifters, and this series sounds really good. Must add to TBR! #GetSocial17

    1. I love them too. I think you'll like this one. Happy reading!

  3. Sounds like another series that I'll like. #getsocial17

  4. Gah, yet another series I've missed out on! I saw this one, or was it the first book on NetGalley and passed. Now I'm wishing I hadn't. I love the enemies to lovers trope so much because there's a lot of potential there for... Shenanigans. Lol. Stopping by from the Get Social event. Thanks for the review!

    1. When I saw this first one on NetGalley's I knew I had to have it. I've read her books in the past but it's been awhile. This series drew me to it. It can be fun when they don't like each other but WANT each other!
