TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - D*mn Near Perfect (Cougars & Cubs #1) by Nancy Fraser
Beth Andrews has given up on ever finding a happily-ever-after. Still smarting from a bitter divorce, she’s decided the only thing she truly needs is sex. Unfortunately, wanting sex and actually finding it are two very different things. Jonathan Tucker is perfectly satisfied with his bachelor lifestyle. He has a wonderful career, a kick-ass new condo, and any woman he wants. As often as he wants. At twenty-seven, he’s convinced he’s living life exactly as it should be. Will the older, albeit sexy, ad executive and the handsome, talented artist both find there’s more to life than what they have now? Or, will they be satisfied with what the both claim to want—d*mn near perfect sex!

Beth couldn’t sit still. Not only was she on edge about a new client, but her lack of physical contact was really starting to get on her nerves. This had to be a sign of middle age or, heaven help her, menopause because all she could think about was sex. Or, her lack thereof.
What didn’t make sense was this sudden awareness, the realization that she missed sex. Her marriage had never been overly active in that regard. So, why now?
She blamed it on the guy who lived above her. He was like a rabbit in heat and in bad need of an oil can for his bed springs. If she closed her eyes, she could imagine him going at it...fast...rough...making his conquest for the night scream with delight.
“Are you ready to go?” Maddie, a close friend from Tuesday yoga class, drew Beth from her salacious thoughts.
“Yes,” she responded. “More ready than I’ve ever been.”
“They say this new club is fan-dam-tastic.” Maddie stopped at the door to Beth’s office and took one last glimpse in the oval mirror on the wall, fluffing her naturally curly blonde hair and pursing her bright red lips together in a half-pout.
Beth stopped, as Maddie had, and shot a grimace in the general direction of her rather subdued appearance. “I hope so, Mads. I really need a night of fun.”
“True ‘nuff, girlfriend, true ‘nuff.”

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
I liked this book. I did not love it though. Why?? I have no idea, apart from one point.
For almost all of the book, only Beth has a say. And if it had ONLY been Beth, I would have said, yes, I wanted to hear from Jonathon, because that's me, you know? I always want to hear from everyone. However! Here? Jonathaon DOES have a say, a whole paragraph, maybe 2. That's it. Nothing else. So I would much rather he NOT have been given such a small voice, to be honest.
Oh, and another thing. I much prefer my books on the more explicit side, and I make no apologies for that. And this book IS on the more explicit side, but for me, it fell kinda . . .flat. There is a lot of sex, yes, but it doesn't really do anything for me, without a really good storyline to it, and I didn't really much care for this one. Sorry!
Good enough, but maybe not one for me.
