When Mikaela Patterson must take on a client with specific requirements that no single women be allowed on his property, she keeps her broken engagement a secret. She doesn’t realize her client and his sons are mountain lion shifters whose instinct to mate with any available woman turns deadly.

Josh Woods is her client's eldest son, and he is immediately drawn to Mikaela. Knowing his father would never allow an available woman on the property, Josh doesn't understand his fascination with her. Josh and Mikaela fight their attraction because of their own secrets, but when the truth comes out about Mikaela's true availability and Josh's animal instincts, they must be prepared to face the consequences.

Mikaela hasn’t told her boss yet she’s no longer engaged so when she is sent away to work for a client on some legal documents she doesn’t think it’s the time to mention it either. Maybe a trip into the wilderness will just be what she needs to get over the betrayal. Arriving at the Woods home she finds the perfect distraction and can’t deny her attraction to Josh even though they all think she’s engaged. Josh knows she’s off limits his kind won’t go after a taken woman even if the cougar in his is determined that at just a glace she’s more than just a one-night stand. While they try to keep it to a professional level deep down they know they need each other. What will happen when Mikaela learns about Josh’s secret and he her secret?

I like Mikaela she’s adorable and Josh while he is ruled by his cat he seems to need her as much as she needs him. They have a lot of chemistry between the two of them that is on fire and heating up the bedroom. While I’m not a huge fan of insta love it just really works for these two of them. A sweet steamy happy ever after with just enough story and bedroom romance in the mix.

I happened across this one that was on my kindle the allure of the cougar shifter is what captured my attention. The concept for the cougar shifters is unique what happens when the find their mate was really interesting. I can see why their father kept them isolated because if things didn’t work out it could end badly for both. I enjoyed the authors story telling it’s a fast paced whirlwind romance that just really works out. I enjoyed every page it was hard to put down I finished it in about twenty minutes. I’m curious to see how the rest of the series will play out for Josh’s brothers.
