TRAINING THE COUGAR *warning explicit content*

**Love Story with explicit content **
Shy thirty-something, Fifty Shades obsessive and One Direction fan Alexa, was hiding a traumatic secret from her past. As a result, she'd put up personal barriers and kept friends, colleagues and men at arm's length. Then one summer, Jake Martin appeared all too briefly in her life. He was handsome, clever, kind...and only eighteen! Nothing happened during that Summer, but now five years on, fate had ensured their paths crossed again. Could this traumatised Cougar put the past behind her and could Jake be the one who finally teaches her how to love?



"Stay for dinner. I have a couple of packets of Birds Eye risotto I can nuke for us!"

They had reluctantly finally stopped kissing and cuddling and were heading downstairs.

"You like risotto?"

"Yeah, it's one of my favourite things. I love Mediterranean food."

"But Jake, I bet the microwave stuff tastes like cardboard! It's so easy to make*. I can do it with my eyes closed! Why don't we go to Waitrose, buy the ingredients and I can make it for you? In fact, I'll show YOU how to make it, then you need never buy the microwave crap again!"

Jake gaped at her. "You'd do that?"

"Of course! I told you, I love cooking."

"Oh yeah - you're housetrained!" He chuckled.

Alexa jabbed him in the ribs. "Or I can just go home."

Jake grabbed her and planted a hard kiss on her lips. "I'll get my coat."


An hour later, Jake was stirring Arborio rice into sautéed onions.

"Now add a ladle-full of stock and keep stirring."

"You're very authoritative in the kitchen." He said giving her one of his cute smirks.

Alexa beamed. "I've become very authoritative full-stop. I dunno what's happened to me since my hysterectomy. I think they took my womb out and gave me a set of balls!"

Jake laughed. "You mean, you can actually control the kids at last?"

"It would seem so. One of the kids called me bossy recently. It made my day! Add another ladle Jake, the rice has almost absorbed the last one."

Jake did as he was told. "I have to say, I'm enjoying this."

"Good. It's meant to be enjoyable. I find it relaxing and it makes me happy. Now add the cooked chicken and coat it with all the rice. Then the last ladle-full of stock."

"It smells delicious Alexa. My mouth is seriously watering!"

Alexa smiled. "Almost done. Now throw in the frozen peas, give it a stir and take it off the heat. You just need to add a big tablespoon of cream cheese now and stir it through."

"I can't believe how easy it is! Thank you for showing me."

Alexa grinned at him. "No probs. Now I just need to check for seasoning...mmm, a little more salt."

"Let me taste it," Jake said, making a grab for the spoon.

Alexa swatted his hand.

"Hey! I'm dying here!"

"You can taste it when you sit down to eat and not before."

"Why do you get to taste it then?" He asked petulantly.

"'Cause I'm in charge! Now serve up and less of the back-chat!"

"Christ, you're just a few swear words away from being the female Gordon Ramsay!"

They took their plates and sat at the table. Jake eagerly spooned a heaped tablespoon of risotto into his mouth.

His eyes widened and caught hers.

Oh no...

He swallowed, closing his eyes with a groan.

Shit! Pleasure or pain, pleasure or pain... How do you tell?

"Jesus Christ Alexa! That is the best risotto I've ever tasted! It's as good as any I've ever had in a restaurant! I don't know what's more amazing, how easy it was or the fact I made it!"

Alexa let out a huge sigh of relief. "Glad you like it." She beamed.

"Like it?" He spooned another tablespoon into his mouth and groaned again. "I can't believe you showed me how to do this - Christ I've just realised - you never even followed a recipe the whole time!"

"I told you know it off by heart! Maybe I finally found something I'm actually good at!"

Jake grinned. "Aww, you're good at lots of things - childcare, crafts, organisation...Falling!"

Alexa threw her napkin at him.

"What else can you cook?" Jake laughed, handing her back the napkin.

"Loads of pasta dishes, roasts, pies, cakes, biscuits...I don't cook fish or curries because I don't particularly like them, but I'm sure I can cook them for you, if you wanted me to."

Jake gazed adoringly at her. "When can you move in?"

Alexa laughed. "Jake, you have no cooking utensils! We had to buy a saucepan and a ladle just so you could make the risotto!"

"So...we'll go and kit out my kitchen. I've give you carte blanche. Set up the kitchen any way you like it. I want you to be able to come here and cook whatever you want, when you want."

Alexa gaped at him. "You really want me to do that?" She almost whispered.

Jake reached over and squeezed her hand. "I want you to be happy here. You said cooking makes you happy. It's certainly made me happy! We could go this Saturday if you like. I'm not working."

Alexa smiled. "I'd like that. We could go to Wilkinsons in Whytefield, then we can go to ASDA and do a food shop."

"There's an ASDA and Wilkinsons in Whytefield?" Jake said in surprise.

"Yes! Jesus Jake, you work at Whytefield Hospital! Have you never been into the town centre or something?"

" I just go to the local Tesco Express in my lunch hour or walk round to Waitrose if I'm at home. I actually don't even know where Whytefield town centre is!" He said in bemusement.

"It's like, five minutes drive away from the hospital! It's nearer than going to Tesco!"

"Wow! I did not know that! What else is in the town centre?" He asked with interest.

"They've got a Poundstretcher, Poundland, Iceland, Farmfoods..."

"Sounds delightful." Jake said sarcastically.

Alexa threw her napkin at him again.

"Don't be such a snob!"

"I'm not a snob! Okay...maybe I like the finer things in life, but that doesn't make me a snob."

"How much were your jeans, Jake?" Alexa asked sharply, focusing her green eyes on him.

"My jeans?"

"Yes. I noticed the Armani label."

Jake smirked wickedly. "You been staring at my arse, Alexa?"

Alexa went pink.


Fucking sexy bastard...



Alexa could barely contain her excitement as she slid into the Mercedes. She had been fantasising about the car from the moment she first saw it and now she was finally going for a drive in it. Okay - it was only a twenty minute drive to Whytefield, but just the same. Jake pulled away from the curb and the car purred into life, gently vibrating around her.

"Wow!" She breathed.

Jake turned to her and grinned. "You've been looking forward to this haven't you?"

"Oh God, yeah! I can't wait to feel her in top gear."

"Well I can't promise she'll be in top gear for long just to go Whytefield, but maybe we can go for a long drive somewhere next week and take the motorway and then you can REALLY feel what she's like when she hits 70 miles an hour!"

"I'd like that." She beamed at him.

"Good. I must admit I'm a bit apprehensive about driving her to Whytefield town centre, but she has the latest immobiliser, alarm and tracking fitted so fingers crossed, I still find her in the car-park when we leave!"

Alexa glared at him. "JAKE! Just because it's got a load of pound shops, it doesn't mean your car is going to get nicked!"


"I can't believe you have all this empty cupboard space!"

"It came with the kitchen, surprisingly."

Alexa's green eyes narrowed at him. They had spent a thoroughly pleasant morning wandering around Whytefield buying pans, utensils and a matching food processor all in red and then doing a food shop. Jake had refused to go into any of the pound shops, until he got bored of waiting for Alexa and had impatiently wandered in. In he end he'd surprised himself and bought some stationery and loads of sweets and chocolates, marvelling at finding some long lost treats he hadn't had since he was a child. Now they were busy finding places in the kitchen for everything they had bought.

"I think I'll have a treat drawer. I can't believe I found Wham! bars in the pound shop! I haven't had a Wham! bar since I was about five!"

"So have I converted you to the wonders of the pound shops?" Alexa asked with a smile.

Jake found an empty drawer and emptied his bag of pound shop treats into it. "Well, I'll certainly be going in a lot more to keep my treat drawer stocked up! I have to admit, I had them all wrong. They actually had quite a lot of stuff in there I didn't expect. That wad of Post-It's was a bargain!"

Alexa grinned. "What do you want for lunch?"

Jake put his arms around her waist and drew her to him. "Forget about lunch for a bit. I've barely touched you today. Lets go and have a snog on the couch."

Alexa beamed. "Sounds good to me!"

Jake took her hand and led her to the couch. He sat down and pulled her onto his lap. Cupping her face, he stroked it with his thumbs.

"I've not stopped thinking about being with you for the last three days." He whispered.

Alexa's heart began to pound. "Me too." She whispered shyly.

"Do you want to try French kissing? You don't have to if you don't think you're ready."

Alexa felt herself blush. "No, I-I'd like to. Hopefully I'll be able to do it properly."

"Of course you will," he smiled softly. He brought his lips gently onto hers. "It's just the same as normal kissing, but I slip my tongue into your mouth. If you like it and feel confident enough, you can do the same to me."

Well, that sounded simple enough...

"Ready?" He breathed.

Alexa nodded, trying to remain calm.

Jake beamed, his eyes glowing like hot coals. "If you don't like it, just pull on my hair and I'll stop. Okay?"

Pull his hair...?

All thoughts of hair pulling disappeared as Jake began to kiss her. Alexa followed his lead as she had always done before. Over and over their mouths melded together and then Alexa suddenly felt the tip of Jake's tongue as it gently slid into her mouth.


In her near thirty-six years, Alexa thought her tongue was there just to enable her to speak and to taste food. She never imagined that it was actually the central sensory organ to her entire body! Jake slowly moved his tongue around her mouth, gently exploring her as he rubbed it alongside hers. Alexa could hear her blood thundering in her head; feel her heartbeat pound so strongly it was resonating through her and a tingling sensation in her most secret of places was rapidly spreading down her legs and into her toes. Jake suddenly withdrew his tongue and pulled off her lips. Alexa gasped and her eyes flew open.


"SHIT! Breathe, Alexa!" Jake exclaimed cupping her face and staring into her eyes. Alexa made a sound that came out like a cross between a wheeze and a snort. "Oh, sweetheart...are you okay?" He moaned stroking her face in concern.

How the FUCK did I forget to breathe in?

" a bit lost in your kiss. I'm sorry," she mumbled trying to get her breath and feeling like an imbecile.

Jake shook his head. "No. I'm sorry. I pushed you too soon." He said sadly.

Alexa's hands flew to his face. "NO! No, Jake you didn't!" She cried. "That kiss...was...everything. Seriously, Jake, I'm fine. Just a little...Awed."

Jake's eyes widened "Awed? Wow." Alexa was vaguely aware that his hands were now gently running over her, comforting and inflaming her in equal measure.

Suddenly overcome with the depths of feeling and emotions Jake was stirring inside her, she pulled his head to hers, sealed her mouth over his and plunged her tongue straight into his mouth!

SHIT! Now what?

She felt Jake smile against her mouth as he brought his hands back up to her face and took over the kiss, slowly stroking her tongue with his.

Okay. I was wrong. THIS kiss is everything!

It was deeper, intimate, an act you did with the man you loved. Time seemed to stand still for a while - and this time she managed to remember to breathe through her nose. She eventually felt Jake slowly withdraw his tongue, so she reluctantly did the same. Jake gently pulled away and she realised she was panting, hot and...WET! How the hell had she got so wet without noticing? She could feel it pooling at the tops of her thighs.

Jake pressed his forehead to hers. He didn't seem to be faring much better. She could feel his breath leaving his mouth in sharp bursts.


"J-just give me a mo, Alexa."

Shit! Shit! Shit!

"I was crap at it wasn't I?"

Jakes jet eyes flew open and he looked into her fearful emerald irises.

"NO! No, sweetheart, of course not. You did well. Too well - if my raging horn is any indication!"

"Raging what?"

Jake smiled adoringly at her. He took her hand, kissed it and brought it down between them until it rested on the hard bulge in his jeans.


Alexa went crimson. Her eyes widened and she tried to move her hand, but Jake held it in place.

"Sweetheart, we are going to get intimate at some point. You have to get used to having this effect on me and not be embarrassed by it. I bet if I placed my hand between your legs now, I would find you wet."

Oh my God, how did he know? Shit...had it seeped through?

Alexa looked frantically down at her lap.

"Don't be embarrassed sweetheart." He said softly moving her hand gently up and down his erection. "It's a perfectly normal reaction to two people who love each other. It's just our bodies reacting to the desire we feel for one another."

I'm stroking his dick! I'm stroking his dick! Holy Crapoly!

"But...I don't remember it feeling like this with Paul." She whispered, her eyes not leaving his crotch.

"That's because he was an arsehole who wasn't interested in your feelings!" Jake snapped, making her jump. He gently kissed the tip of her nose to reassure her and wrapped his arms tighter around her. "He was a sleaze who just wanted to fuck you Alexa, whether you wanted him to or not." He said gently. "I'm so glad you managed to stop him. I shudder to think what he would have done to you." He grimaced.

Oh God, me too...

He moved his hand away and stroked her cheek looking intently into her eyes. "When you're ready for me to make love to you Alexa, I'd like to take you away to a nice hotel somewhere. Make a weekend of it. Then we can fully relax away from everything. I was thinking of London or even Paris if you want."

Alexa's eyes shone. "Really? You'd really do that?"

"Alexa, I would take you to the top of Everest, if it made you happy."

Alexa lunged at his lips again. When they eventually stopped they were both panting hard.

"Christ! I'm going to need a cold shower! I take it you're enjoying French kissing then!" He breathed.

Alexa grinned sheepishly. "I'm enjoying everything with you!"

Jake grinned back. "Good, me too! A little too much! I'm going to have to try and reign in my hormones somehow around you!"

Alexa put her arms around his neck. "Hey you're twenty three. I'd be disappointed if your hormones weren't running riot!" She looked downwards. "I'm sorry you have to keep controlling your emotions, because I'm not ready to sleep with you yet."

Jake lifted her chin. "Oh sweetheart, it's not your fault. Baby-steps remember? I've waited this bloody long for you, I'm not ruining it by rushing it at the last minute." He kissed her gently on the lips, then gave her a friendly smack across her thigh. "Come on then Wench, jump up and go and make me something delicious for lunch, I'm starving!"


"Do you want to watch a film or something?" Jake asked putting their plates and cups in the sink.

Alexa lifted her hands above her head and stretched. "Deffo, but can we watch it on your bed please? I'd really love a topless cuddle again!"

Jake ran an elegant finger over his full bottom lip as he contemplated Alexa's plan. "Mmmm...I'm beginning to think you're a closet deviant!"

Alexa blushed and looked at the floor.

Jake walked across, pulled her into his arms and against his chest. "Hey, I'm teasing!" He tipped her head back and looked into her eyes. "I'd love to watch a film and have a topless cuddle with you. Holding you close is my most favourite thing in the world."

Alexa smiled shyly. "Mine too," she whispered.

Smiling broadly, Jake took her hand and led her up the stairs.

I'm so glad Jake hasn't succumbed to the maddening fashion of today's young men - skinny jeans hanging off hips with crotches that almost touch their knees. I love the way he has perfect fit jeans that hug his gorgeously pert...

"You checking out my arse again?" He grinned at her over his shoulder.

Checking it out? I want to bite it...

Alexa gritted her teeth to stop her blush. She swatted his behind and as they reached the top of the stairs, Jake twerked it at her, making her giggle.

Once in the bedroom Alexa kicked off her trainers and jumped on the bed, lying back quickly so she could watch Jake undress. Jake chuckled.

"So that's your game is it, Wench?" He said in a husky voice.

This time she couldn't fight the blush.

Damn him!

He began to slowly roll the hem of his t-shirt upwards, revealing inch by inch of his perfect abs. Alexa's mouth began to water. Jake continued to roll the shirt agonisingly slowly up his chest, revealing his well defined pecs and the cute disks of his dark nipples. When he'd rolled the t-shirt to under his chin, he abruptly let it go, covering himself again.

"Hey!" Alexa said indignantly.

Jake stalked around the bed until he was stood next to her.

"You want it off sweetheart - take it off yourself," he rasped.

Oh Jesus...

Come on Alexa, you can do this!

Alexa swung her legs round and stood shakily in front of him. Jake smiled lovingly at her and stroked her cheek. She caught the edge of his t-shirt in her thumbs and began to move it slowly up his chest, splaying her trembling fingers as she moved her hands up so she could touch his skin. Jake closed his eyes, tipped his head back and moaned softly. Alexa felt her core tighten. She was starting to love hearing his gentle moans almost as much as she loved to hear him say please. She reached his shoulders and he bent forward obediently to make it easier for her to tug it off over his head. He leaned across and kissed her cheek before grinning and straightening up.

"Well done Wench! Now get back on the bed."

Smiling she clambered back onto the bed and Jake scrambled after her. He quickly pulled her against him and kissed the top of her head as she rested it on his chest and she wrapped herself around him. Grabbing the remote from the bedside cabinet, he turned the telly on and began to flick through the movie channels.

"Why isn't there ever anything decent on, when you actually have the time to watch something?" He complained.

"Ooh go back one! Wasn't that 'Bad Teacher?' It's meant to be quite funny."

Jake flicked back and turned the sound up a bit. He kissed the top of her head again and intertwined his hand with hers on his bare chest. Alexa gave a little contented sigh as his fingers caressed her back.

Half-way through the film, the character played by Justin Timberlake gives in to the pursuit of Cameron Diaz, who had been chasing him for an affair - but he only agrees to dry humping her so he doesn't cheat on his girlfriend. Alexa watched fascinated.

"Do people actually do that?"

"I would imagine so. People without contraception mainly, I would think. I suppose it's a good way to experiment, without the fear that you're going to get a girl pregnant. When you're that horny, any kind of rubbing in the right place is going to get you off."

Alexa went quiet for a few moments.



"Do you think...we could...dry hump?"

Jake paused from stroking her back. Alexa lifted her head off his chest and looked at him.

"Stupid idea?"

Jake frowned. "No...actually it's probably a bloody good idea. I'm annoyed I didn't think of it myself!It would give us a chance to strip to our underwear and explore each other, before we take the final step and become really intimate."

"And with the dry humping - I'd still...We'd still..." Alexa stopped, embarrassment flooding her cheeks.

"Come? Oh yes sweetheart, I'd make sure of it." He smiled and ran his thumb over her lips. "So when do you want to try?" He whispered.

"I-Is now too soon?"

Jake took a sharp breath, then grinned wickedly. "Well aren't you full of surprises! Yes sweetheart, if you want to do it now, I'm MORE than happy to. I'll just grab some condoms from the bathroom."

Alexa's eyes widened in fear. "Condoms! But I thought you said..."

"Shhh, don't worry. It'll be less messy with condoms." He said reassuringly. "You saw what happened to that idiot Timberlake - he came in his trousers!"

Alexa looked at him from under her eyelashes. "So...what do you want me to?" She whispered shyly.

"Ummm....well whilst I go to the bathroom and put a condom on...maybe you could take your clothes off and get under the covers? Just your clothes Alexa, keep your underwear on."

"Baby steps?"

"Oh definitely. For me as much as you," he smiled at her and gave her a gentle kiss on the lips.

Alexa shifted off his chest and Jake got off the bed.

"Shout me when you're ready. Okay sweetheart?"

Alexa nodded. Giving her a reassuring smile, he headed out of the room.

Okay, okay, I can do this.

It wasn't sex, it wasn't even making love, it was more an opportunity to feel Jake against her without the fear. She really did want to feel his bare skin against hers. That was blatantly obvious from the state of her knickers.

OH GOD. MY KNICKERS! In fact - my underwear in general!  Oh what am I wearing, what am I wearing...

Oh God please let them at least be the same colour and half-decent!

She hadn't anticipated this happening today. In the back of her mind she had planned a shopping trip to stock up on nice matching underwear, in the near future. Her underwear of choice was usually bought for comfort rather than seduction. She pulled off her t-shirt. Okay - black bra with a little bit of lace at the front, that was good. Pulling down her jeans, to her dismay, she found large black cotton knickers.

Great. About as sexy as bloody tonsillitis!

But, at least they were the same colour as her bra and decent. They would have to do, there was nothing she could do about it now, but her underwear trip would have to come as a matter of urgency. At the last minute, she grabbed her cardigan and put it back on over her underwear. At least now she felt a little less self-conscious. She checked her appearance in the mirror. Okay, she looked as good as she could possibly look; hair only sticking up a bit, make-up all actually still on her face this time. Plus she would be lying down under the covers. Hopefully gravity would help with the rest, and maybe she'd eventually feel confident enough to lose the cardigan. She pulled up the duvet and slipped under.

Ooh the satin was soft, but a bit cold...

She wriggled around a bit and waited. And waited. And...



Seriously, how stupid can I possibly be...

"Thank God, I thought you'd changed your mind or fallen asleep!" Jake said coming into the room.

"Were you behind the door?"

"I was just coming to check you were okay."

Alexa pulled the duvet over her head. "I forgot to shout you," she said in a muffled voice.

She pulled the duvet down a bit and peeked at him. Jake had sucked his lips into his mouth to stop from laughing out loud.

"Well...I'm nothing if not consistent."

Jake chuckled. "Consistently amusing, sweetheart. That's what I love about you."

He brought his hands to his fly and slowly brought his zipper down, his eyes not leaving hers. He pushed his jeans down and stepped out of them. He was now stood in front of her in just tight, black Calvin Klein's. Alexa tried not gape, but failed miserably.

"You look like Tarzan," she said in awed tone.

Jake grinned. "Thanks! I'll take that as a compliment."

"It was meant as one, believe me."

He grabbed the duvet and hauled it back, revealing her immediately. Alexa let out a squeak and instinctively put her arms across her chest.

"Take your hands away Alexa. I want to see you. Please."

Goddamn word!

Alexa slowly moved her hands down by her sides, feeling herself blush from head to foot. Jake climbed onto the bed until he was kneeling by her side. His eyes left her face and slowly scanned her body from head to toes. Alexa felt her blush deepen under his gaze and she began to feel hot as she gripped the valance with white-knuckled force, fighting to stop herself from covering up. His gaze swept up from her toes and finished back at her face, heat radiating out of his eyes.

"Sorry about the cardigan, I wasn't as confident as I hoped I would be." She whispered. "Jake?"

Jake hadn't moved or said anything.There was a long pause. Alexa held her breath.

Oh God...What's he thinking..?

Jake let out a deep breath.

"Christ. You're stunning, sweetheart."




*Alexa's Risotto Recipe*

(For two people)


1/2 kilo cooked chicken cut into small pieces (if using raw meat,

Please ensure it is thoroughly cooked first or you could substitute any vegetables/Tofu/Quorn)

1 small onion diced

1-2 garlic cloves

Tablespoon oil

Handful of Chorizo sausage cut into thin discs (optional)

1 pint chicken stock (either fresh or made with stock cube and hot water)

Glass of white wine

Cup of frozen or fresh veg of your choice

2 tablespoons cream cheese or Creme Fraiche


Heat oil on a medium heat in a saucepan. Give garlic a hard bang to help release flavour and add to oil with half the Chorizo discs (the Chorizo will release a smokey/piquant flavour and the paprika in the sausage will turn the oil orange). Add the onions and cook until translucent.


Add the rice and coat in the oil, stirring well until the rice has almost absorbed the oil. Add in the glass of wine. Pan will sizzle quite ferociously at this point. Before wine is totally absorbed add ladle of stock and stir well.


Continue to add stock and stir into the rice just before liquid evaporates. When three-quarters of the stock has been used, add the chicken and remaining Chorizo stirring well so everything is coated. Add the veg and last ladleful of stock. Stir until rice resembles rice-pudding consistency. Add salt and pepper to taste.


Take off heat and add cream cheese/Creme Fraiche and stir well. Check for seasoning and serve.


Bon Appetite!
