There’s something intriguing—and even a little bit scandalous—about the older woman/younger man pairing. In pop culture, it’s often seen as a sort of taboo, with the older woman being portrayed as a predatory cougar. But in reality, there are plenty of older women who are attracted to younger men, and plenty of younger men who are attracted to older women. If you’re interested in exploring this dynamic in fiction, here are some of the best books about older woman/younger man relationships.
The first book on our list is “The Cougar Club” by Susan McBride. The book follows three forty-something women who are determined to enjoy the best of what life has to offer, including the attentions of younger men. If you’re looking for a fun, sexy read, this is the book for you.
Next up is “The Older Woman” by P.D. James. In this novel, a woman in her 60s begins a relationship with a man in his 20s, and the two must contend with the disapproval of their friends and families. This is a more serious book than “The Cougar Club,” but it’s just as enjoyable.
If you’re looking for a steamy read, “Older Woman, Younger Man” by Victoria Dahl is the book for you. This novel follows a woman in her 40s who begins a passionate affair with a much younger man. Be warned: this book is super sexy, so if you’re looking for a quick read, this is it.
Finally, we have “The Age Gap” by Maggie Alderson. In this book, a woman in her 60s falls for a man in his 30s, and the two must deal with the challenges that come with their age difference. This is a sweet, touching book that’s perfect for fans of older woman/younger man romances.
