Maggie’s just decided she’s been stood up when she bumps into hard-bodied guitarist Calvin—literally. Once the shock of their abrupt meeting wears off, Calvin asks Maggie out for a drink and she figures, why not? She’s all dressed up for a date…just not this one.

She enjoys his company, even if he’s only twenty-seven and she’s forty…something. And while witty conversation’s all good, they’re just as compatible in bed. One drink turns into multiple romps between the sheets. He’s old enough to know how to make love to a woman and young enough to look damn fine doing it…and doing it. He even manages to convince Maggie she’s still pretty hot herself.

Now if he would just stop serenading her with that infernal Rod Stewart song.


Waking Maggie is a great story about second chances and a cougar getting in her groove. Though the story is short the characters are endearing and easy to connect with as a reader.

Maggie will capture your heart with her courage and endurance. Calvin with his loving nature towards Maggie is heart-warming. The two of them together scorch the pages with their love making and will leave you wanting more.

This is a well written story that will have you laughing out loud and leaving you hopeful. If you are looking for a contemporary romance with some sizzle, then check out Waking Maggie. I will be looking for other works by Cindy Jacks.
