The first chapter deals with Ilona's own sexual experience with a younger man, while the rest of the chapters have her narrating her cougar pals' escapades. Now, Ilona's episode is pretty well-written, but I can't say the same for the rest of the book. I realize that it would be rather boring to simply say things like "they took off their clothes and then went to the bedroom", but Ilona's choice of metaphors are rather weird (see page 106, where her friend Lila gets so aroused by her man that she is "reduced to a groaning gob of goo"). Ilona also has the habit of referring to just about every instance of arousal as an "electric current" (or something to that effect), which sounded fine the first few times but then it just started to get annoying; also, sometimes the dialogue seems unlikely ("Thank you for a stupendous day"? Who says that?) Moreover, whereas in the first few chapters she mentions the men's respective ages, she doesn't even bother to do that later on.
There are also quite a number of things that go on in this book that are very hard to relate to (even when looking at the big picture; more on that later). At one point, a man is described as becoming aroused before anything really happens (kinda like that scene in American Pie 2 at band camp where Michelle is teaching Jim how to do certain things), and Ilona claims that that turns women on. It does? I thought it was only good when TRAINS arrived early. Anyway, what really takes the cake was when she said that the man she was with had a, shall we say, small supply of goods, but it didn't matter. Point me to a woman that thinks like that!
At various points in the book, Ilona would state when the woman does something and then she'd say something along the lines of, "Men love it when women do that." Now, the first few things I could understand, but then...I guess I'd better use a clean example...she started talking about taking a bite out of the man's neck -- not biting it, actually taking a bite out of it. WTF??? I don't want anyone doing that to me! That sounds painful! (Speaking of painful, at times she talks about the aforementioned electric current going straight to the woman's...well, you know where this is going).
One more thing is that although this book is undoubtedly intended to be better enjoyed by women more than men, I don't know how many women can relate to it after all because all the people described in this book are rich, and I mean RICH: with the kind of houses that are about as big as an entire apartment building: and they're at fancy restaurants eating foods that most people probably have never even heard of. In short, Ilona Paris definitely isn't bad-looking and she probably won't have any trouble getting further action, but for the most part, all her writing skills really show are why cougars don't roar.
P.S. The description on the back of the book includes, "In [Paris'] wonderfully seductive voice that never apologizes..." Wonderfully seductive voice? IT'S A BOOK!
