Review - Cougar's First Christmas by Jessie Donovan @JessieDauthor (Cascade Shifters #1.5)

Cougar’s First Christmas
Cascade Shifters #1.5
by Jessie Donovan

Goodreads blurb:  Willing to chance arrest and jail time, cougar-shifter Sean Fisher wants to make human Lauren Spencer his mate and Christmas is the perfect time to do it. However, on the way to obtain her parents' approval, a car runs them off the road. When Sean wakes up, he's tied up and alone, at the mercy of an anti-shifter group.

Six months ago, Lauren never would've pictured herself with a cougar-shifter, but Sean was everything she hoped for and was willing to risk it all to be his mate. Yet when a staged car crash tears him from her side, Lauren must reach out to his clan--a clan she's never met--for help before it's too late.

Can Lauren and Sean be together for Christmas? Or, will their differences be too much to overcome and rip them apart?

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 - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***Received this ebook from the author for an honest review but I also bought it as soon as it released :)

The cover is awesome, but you would think that she was the cougar with her eyes.  I totally love the cover, and it definitely attracts a shifter lover like me to grab it and read it.

Okay this is a novella, so it is a quick read.  I wish it was another full book because it was over way too quickly.  Of course this book also is for adults only and has some very steamy scenes in it.  It was awesome and full of action and drama.  Jessie really is a fabulous author and one of my favorites :)

I loved Lauren as a character because she didn’t take crap from anyone, and she is very loyal.  She wouldn’t let a shifter try to intimidate her.

Favorite quote in the book:
"She's determined to scare you off."  "Oh, is she? Well, maybe I should buy her a scratching post for Christmas and throw down my challenge." ~Cougar's First Christmas by Jessie Donovan

Sean is strong and sweet.  I totally wish I had a shifter of my own just like him :)

Okay, so I’m wondering when the bears are going to become part of the book series, and I really hope another book comes out soon because I already love this series :)

I highly recommend this book and series to those awesome people who want a shifter of their own and especially if you already have enjoyed some of Jessie’s stories because you won’t want to miss this one :)
