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?


26. OUT NOW...

 Alexa and Jake's erotic love story continues in book two:



June 2014


"Where are we going?"

"I told you, it's a surprise. Just sit tight and enjoy the view!"

I scowl in his direction. "Very funny Mr Martin. Will I be enjoying more of your stand-up routine once we arrive at our destination?"

Jake chuckles. "I'm sure something will be standing up when we get to our destination and thanks to the sight of you in that eye-mask, it's already half-way there!"

I fold my arms and sit back in the car seat. I aim for faux annoyed and of course fail miserably. How can I possibly be annoyed at the most gorgeous, wonderful man in the world...


Even though it's been almost a week, I still have to repeat it to myself. I still cannot believe I am Mrs Alexa Martin. To have and to hold, in sickness and in health, till death us do part. I shudder as that unpleasant thought crosses my mind.

His hand unexpectedly brushes my cheek, making me jump.

"You okay sweetheart? If it's annoying you, just take the bloody mask off. I don't want you to be uncomfortable."

I reach blindly for his hand, luckily find it first time and kiss him somewhere on it.

"No, it's fine babe honestly. I was just thinking." I say reassuringly

"About what?" He asks softly.

"About being your wife," I smile.

God I lurrrrrrvvvveee that word!

"Oh right. And the thought of you being my wife made you shudder?"

"NO! I was just thinking of our vows...and the death us do part bit..." I finish in a whisper.

I feel his fingers move to the nape of my neck and he strokes the exposed skin under my pony-tail. Thanks to Ms Amanda Breen, hairdresser extraordinare, I have managed to successfully grow my hair long for the first time in my life. And with the power of length and gravity, it now hangs in a nice wavy curtain and doesn't stick up all over the place like it used to.

Mind you, this heat is giving it a good run for it's money...

"Nothing's going to happen, sweetheart," he whispers back. "Please try to stop worrying."

I nod. "I know. I am trying. But I love you and Jacob so much and Joe and Krystal of course." I pause and smile. "I still can't believe you flew them over!"

I can sense his grin. "Well, it didn't seem right not to be able to have some alone time with my beautiful wife on our honeymoon. Plus, they were only too happy to help out with Jacob. You know they dote on him. And he adores them. He'll have a ball - they've already made plans to take him to the aquarium and we're not going to be too far away if they need us."

The car slides to a halt and I can hear beeping followed by a mechanical grinding noise.


We drive a little further and the mechanical grinding noise can be heard again, but this time in the distance. Suddenly the car comes to another stop and this time I hear Jake turn the engine off. Before I can move my hands, I feel his hands on either side of my face and his lips capture mine in a long slow kiss, as he gently lifts off the mask.

"Open your eyes, sweetheart," he murmurs against my lips.

I blink my eyes open. The sun has nearly set and my view is hampered slightly by the fading light. I look around from my seat in the hired convertible Jeep.



I hope you enjoyed the exclusive excerpt to my sequel, out now at Movellas!


Thank you, thank you, thank you all so much for taking the time to read my story and for all the love, support and belief in my writing and my characters. I'm beyond moved that you have taken Alexa, Jake, Jacob, Krystal and Joe into your hearts.

Taylor Lautner was always my inspiration - I even called him Jake/Jacob after his character in Twilight. But because Alexa was loosely based on me, I struggled to find just the right muse for her. After toying with a few different women it was Emily Blunt who possessed just the right amount of kookiness, beauty and vulnerability and I knew I had found my Alexa. This just showcases all the qualities I was looking for:
