SYNOPSIS:

Celebrity archaeologist Cari Dunn may have only had a couple of days with bodyguard Jasper Benjamin, but it was enough to completely lose her heart to him. When one suspect after another proves their innocence, the duo find their time running out. After a violent showing from her stalker, Cari is ready for it all to be over, safe in Jasper’s arms. If she makes it out alive, will he feel the same way about her?

 

Excerpt #4:

“You seem restless,” I said after a moment.

“I am,” Jasper said. “I don’t like this waiting around.”

“We should have gone back to my room,” I said. “If you want our guy to make a move, that is.”

“No, it’s not that,” Jasper said. “This is necessary. Getting away from the situation, getting perspective. We’ll get a bird’s-eye view of everything going on, and in the end, that’s how we’re going to beat this. It’s necessary, I just don’t like it.”

The minutes ticked by. Jasper cleaned his gun until it was spotless, then reassembled and holstered it. A clock hanging in the kitchen counted the seconds. The fire in the stove crackled away, the temperature in the room rising in increments.

Jasper cleared his throat, looked at me, glanced away. He tapped his foot against the floor, drummed his fingers on the arm of the chair.

Seeing him so agitated was strange. This was a man who could stand sentry for hours on end without so much as blinking an eye, and yet I could tell the lack of activity, the seclusion, was driving him a little bit crazy.

“I spy with my little eye something…green.” I batted my eyelashes at him when he turned to look at me, a hint of incredulity on his features. “What? I’m bored.”

“My T-shirt,” he replied drily, striding to the window and peering through the slit in the curtains. “Trust me, you’ll never beat me at that game. I see everything.”

“Arrogant much?” He didn’t reply; I sighed. “I have some cards in my purse. Want to play Go Fish?”

He huffed out a breath.

“Snap?”

No change.

“Strip poker?”

Finally, a flicker of interest, a change in the stiff lines of his posture.

“Aha.”

Looking back, away from the window, he pinned me with that intense stare of his.

“Aha, what?” But his gaze swept over me, top to bottom. My skin heated as he looked, and suddenly I wasn’t feeling so playful.

“I thought of something we can do to pass the time.” Sinking my teeth into my lower lip, I twisted my fingers in the hem of my T-shirt. “Something that might interest you a bit more.”

He turned fully away from the window; the resulting rush of blood through my veins made me dizzy, leaving me suddenly shy.

“Go on.” Crossing his arms over his chest, he leaned back against the rough-hewn wooden wall, watching.

Waiting.

It’s over.  It CAN’T be over.  I need more of this couple.  I need more Jasper and Cari.  Hell, I need more Jackson, too.  With or without Jasper and Cari.  I just fell in love with this serial.  There is a lot more action and not much sex in the final part.  We finally get to know who has been stalking Cari and why.  I kinda figured it out but it wasn’t until the final climax that it all came together for me.  It made sense and I really liked how Ms. Hawkeye never ONCE even hinted at who it was.  I kept thinking that it was the sexist pig but in the end, I was wrong.

I’m glad that I took a chance with this serial.  I found that even though I had all the parts at one time, I really liked it.  In fact, I’ve re-read it already.  Don’t miss out on a wonderful story just because it’s a serial.  I loved the suspense element that ran through the book.  Jasper and Cari are a great couple and Jackson, my Jackson.  I will just say that I need more of him, like NOW!

Excerpt #3:

 

“You two know each other. From before the bar, I mean.” This wasn’t a question. No matter how kinky he was, I just couldn’t see Jasper looking up some guy we’d played with at the bar for a bit of follow-up nookie. “Want to let me in on the secret?”

Jackson smirked as he filled a champagne flute to the top with pale, frothy liquid. Tucking two bottles of beer dripping with condensation under his arm, he carried the wine to me, handing Jackson a beer before seating himself on the couch across from us.

I watched his movements, the precise control in them. I hadn’t noticed it before because I hadn’t been looking for it, but now I saw the similarity to the way Jasper carried himself. “You were in the Marines together.”

“Give the lady a doctorate.” Jackson smirked, toasting me with his own beer before twisting off the cap and taking a deep sip.

I turned back to Jasper, who was watching me intently, waiting to pick up on any sign of discomfort. “Do you work together now?”

“Jackson left the Marines not long after I did. Since he worships me so much, he decided to follow me into the world of protection.” Jasper drank, and I was distracted by the sensual line of his throat as he swallowed. “And since his services are not nearly as in demand as mine, he had nothing better to do than follow me out to out to freaking Meadow Ridge, Georgia, on assignment.”

“Wait.” I gulped down half of my drink before setting it on the coffee table in front of us. I pinned Jackson with a hard stare. “You must have known who I was when you approached me, then. Did you do it just to piss him off?”

Beside me, Jasper huffed out a breath; Jackson laughed.

“Sure, I knew who you were. I like your show.” Draining his beer, he set the bottle down beside my half-full champagne flute. “I approached you because you’re hot. It was my shitty luck that you’d already attached yourself to Jasper’s ugly-ass self.”

Beside me, Jasper snorted, and I sat back, evaluating my feelings. I felt like I should have been a little upset that neither man had let on that they knew each other that night. Instead, I found it kind of sexy. “You guys get handsy with each other’s women all the time?”

I tensed as soon as I spoke; I’d just referred to myself as Jasper’s woman. What would he think of that?

When I cast him a nervous glance, he was watching me intently, but he didn’t look like he was going to run screaming off into the night. Instead, he was focused on me entirely, and if I had to label the emotion I saw on his face, it would have been possessive.

“Jackson can’t help wanting what’s mine.” Jasper’s smile was dark and sexy. “But if we’re feeling nice, maybe we’ll let him play for a bit.”

Another great installment from Ms. Hawkeye.  This is one is a bit dirtier than the first one.  More voyeurism, definitely a menage (deliciously done), and the suspense element is ramped up, too.  I still haven’t figured it out at this point.  And yes, I’m finished with the serial.  It just gets better and better.  Plus, we get to see a side of Jasper that will finally cement your love for him.

Jackson is just beyond delicious and I would love a story with just him.  She only scratches the surface with him and I bet he has a lot more to say about Jasper and Cari at this point.  I really like Ms. Hawkeye’s writing.  It’s fun, dirty, and snarky at times.  Cari just can’t keep her mouth shut at times and it leads to some humorous scenes.  I also like how Jasper and Cari are figuring out how much that they actually like each other beyond the sex.

Don’t miss this serial.  I don’t read them but this one is a must-read!

Excerpt #1:

 

Jasper watched me approach, but most of the wariness I’d seen on him was gone. In its place was the same need, the primal desire that had been relentlessly pushing me in his direction since we’d met.

“You like watching.” Emboldened by the shot of tequila, I pushed at his chest, urging him to sit on the bar stool behind him. He resisted for a moment before complying, spreading his legs wide enough that I could nestle myself between them.

“I like lots of things.” He hissed out a breath, just the smallest of reactions, as I placed a hand on each of his thighs, rubbing my palms over the defined muscles.

He didn’t push me away.

“Show me.”

“You don’t know what you’re asking for.” His voice, more whiskey than steel as he looked down at me, was full of warning.

“That’s a cop-out.” I licked my lips, tasting tequila. “Tell me.”

Without warning, his hand shot out and palmed my breast. I gasped as with his other hand he pulled me flush against his torso, the soft curves of my stomach to his groin.

My eyes widened as he pulled me closer still, rubbing me back and forth over—oh, man. I’d felt his hardness against me earlier, but right now, as he deliberately shifted me along his length, I felt the need gathering tight at the base of my spine.

With sure fingers, he tugged the right side of my dress down. The bra that I wore beneath was white lace and thin, and when he ran his thumb over my nipple, a pulse of heat shot straight from his caress to my core.

“Jasper!” I was pressed against his chest, but we were sitting in the middle of a bar that was crowded with people. “What are you doing?”

My words were shocked, but I betrayed myself by pressing into his palm. He laughed, a low, dark sound, and dampness surged between my legs.

“Yeah, I like to watch.” Without warning, he pulled back and tugged my dress into position. I was left staring up at him with wide eyes and shaky hands. “I like to be watched, too. Like I said, Cari, I like a lot of things. You’ve been pushing me all day, and I’m about to break, so make sure you understand. If we do this, I’m going to want those things with you.”

He probably expected that little speech to discourage me. If he got to know me better, he’d find out that I saw challenges like a bull sees red flags.

Okay, this review is going to be short.  Why?  Because this is part 1 of 3 parts in a complete serial.  I know, I’ve been very vocal about NOT ever reading a serial but this one was sent complete so I decided to take a chance.  Let you in on a little secret…I’ve read all three parts.  😉

Keep in mind that this is erotic so there is sex o plenty.  😉  Voyeurism, exhibitionism, a tease of menage, just to name the highlights.  But it’s interesting how Ms. Hawkeye switched some of the gender roles when it comes to it.  I was shocked but also very pleased.  It’s a running theme throughout the serial and it’s very, very good.  It explains a lot about a certain character in the book and makes me like them even more.

The suspense element that starts in this part is great.  The ending of part 1 is a shocker.

I realize that this serial is NOT available in all parts to readers.  The last part releases in late July but it is definitely one that you should pick up.
