Review - Convincing the Cougar by Jessie Donovan @JessieDauthor (Cascade Shifters #0.5)

Convincing the Cougar
Cascade Shifters #0.5
by Jessie Donovan

Goodreads blurb:  Kian Murray is a cougar-shifter clan leader with a problem--he has a limp. Despite earning the injury protecting a group of cubs, he feels helpless. His clan and mate deserves someone hearty and whole, and he's nothing more than a liability. The best thing he can do is give up his clan and his mate and find a way to start over.

Trinity Perez-Murray refuses to watch her mate give up his clan because of a small limp. After four months of trying and failing to bring him back from the edge, she only has one card left to play--she's going to seduce her mate. But just as her charms start to pay off, she and Kian are attacked by a group of unusual shifters.

Now it's up to Kian to help fight off the intruders. But in the heat of the moment, will his alpha instincts return and release the warrior inside?

About the Author:  Jessie Donovan wrote her first story at age five, and after discovering the Dragonriders of Pern series by Anne McCaffrey in junior high, realized that people actually wanted to read stories like those floating around inside her head. From there on out, she was determined to tap into her over-active imagination and write a book someday.

After living abroad for five years and earning degrees in Japanese, Anthropology, and Secondary Education, she buckled down and finally wrote her first full-length book. While that story will never see the light of day, it laid the world-building groundwork of what would become her debut paranormal romance, Blaze of Secrets.

Jessie loves to interact with readers. When not reading or traipsing around some foreign country on a shoestring, can often be found on Facebook and Twitter.

The one thing you'll find in all of Jessie's stories are strong, capable women and the people who love them.

My Thoughts - 3 out of 5 Unicorns - I liked it!!!

The cover is …well I’m torn.  I love the cat and the mountains, but something about the male model that I’m not liking.  I’m sure it is just me, but he looks sick or something.  Anyways I do love the cat a whole lot :)

Okay this is only about 40 or so pages, so it isn’t too long.  This not my favorite of Jessie’s work, but I think this series will get better.  There was just not enough for me to connect to the world and characters.  I don’t mind the steamy scenes, but some may think it is the main focus of this story.  I only tell you to help you decide if this story is for you.  I can definitely see promise in this series and can’t wait to read the next book as it is a full length novel, and I think I will connect better having more :)  You have the added benefit of getting this story for free.  I actually bought it before it became free :)

I think if you love steamy shifter short stories for a quick read, then you will love this :)  And it is free, so why not try it :)

Interested in reading???
