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!

SYNOPSIS:

Celebrity archaeologist Cari Dunn knew an affair with Jasper Benjamin was dangerous. Especially after the sound of shattering glass interrupts what was supposed to be a pleasure-filled night. When the threats against Cari start to stack up and the list of suspects seems higher than ever, Jasper calls for backup. Some very hot and exciting backup. For one night, Cari feels more protected than ever. But if they’re lost in passion, can they see the danger before it’s too late?

DON’T MISS THE SECOND PART IN THE UNINHIBITED SERIAL!

BUY:

SYNOPSIS:

Celebrity archaeologist Cari Dunn is so over the Georgia heat, the red tape at her dig site, and the threatening messages left on her motel door. She just wants to dig, and the network just wants to keep her safe—with a bodyguard. She can’t complain. Jasper Benjamin radiates raw masculinity that penetrates her to the core and ignites passion she’s never felt. Too bad for him, she’s not going to be easy to handle.

Lusting after the bodyguard shouldn’t be so tempting, especially when her life is on the line.

ABOUT LAUREN HAWKEYE

New York Time and USA Today bestselling author Lauren Hawkeye never imagined that she’d wind up telling stories for a living… though when she looks back, it’s easy to see that she’s the only one who is surprised. Always “the kid who read all the time”, Lauren made up stories about her favorite characters once she’d finished a book… and once spent an entire year narrating her own life internally. No, really. But where she was just plain odd before publication, now she can at least claim to have an artistic temperament.

Lauren lives in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada with her husband, two young sons, pit bull and two idiot cats, though they do not live in an igloo, nor do they drive a dogsled. In her nonexistent spare time Lauren can be found knitting, reading anything she can get her hands on, or sweating her way through spin class. She loves to hear from her readers!

UNBOUND

by Lauren Hawkeye
Uninhibited #2

Don’t forget to add some toys and books to your registry!
Activity Gym: A great play gym is nice to have, and this one from Infantino is affordable and folds up for easy travel.
Teether: Sophie the giraffe is across the board our favorite baby toy/teether. It’s been around for over 50 years and has stood the test of time because it’s so well made.
Rattles: Oball rattles and the the Winkel rattle are both perfect for little hands learning to grasp and my boys play with theirs still to this day!
Books: Above are some of my family’s favorite choices in books, including Little Humans-from the creator of Humans of New York, The Book With No Pictures-which is for toddlers and up but HILARIOUS and our family’s absolute favorite bedtime book, some black and white books (great for little babies’ eyes!) and Peek-a-WHO?-a fun and silly book your baby will love. (Click HERE to see more details about each of the books)The Only Baby Registry Guide You'll Need Diapering

Again, like feeding diapering is something that varies from family to family. Cloth diapering is something I always wanted to do but we decided against it in the end. Because I don’t have personal experience with cloth diapers I do not have recommendations I can give (But if you do, PLEASE feel free to comment below to help out the mamas looking to cloth diaper!). If you need more cloth diapering info, check out all of our cloth diaper posts from the moms here that have done it!
Diaper Bag: My top pick for a basic diaper bag is the Skip Hop Duo. It comes in a wide array of designs and colors and is pretty much the pefect bag at the perfect size. A little small for a familiy with multiples but a really great bag overall.
Backpack: The Jujube Be Right Back Backpack is perfect for the practical parent. This bag has all you need in a convenient backpack style, making getting around a lot easier!
Diaper Pail: Of all the diaper pails I’ve used, the Diaper Champ is my jam. I’m really not into diaper pails because we take our garbage out daily and don’t really need one but if you want one, check this one out for sure.
Burp Cloth/Diapers: I added the plush Gerber cloth diapers on here but I don’t use them for diapering-they’re my burp cloths. I had an internal conflict deciding where to place them, but they ended up in diapers because they’re diapers. Forget the cutesy burp cloths with designs. These are the best you’ll find.
Diaper Disposal: The Munchkin Arm & Hammer bags & dispenser have saved my hide many times. From the stinkiest diapers at a friends’ house to full on blow outs, we’ve used them to dispose of diapers and to contain disgusting outfits and they completely hide the smell.
Diaper Rash: Diaper rash cream should be on hand at all times. We love the Creamy Desitin but when rashes are bad, Bordeaux’s Extra Strength Butt Paste (the red one) works immediately and soothes baby’s bottom. We love both, but the butt paste is my top pick.
Clothing: Make sure to have plenty of white onesies-I use them under all outfits from birth till about 6 months. This acts as a great barrier to help contain blowouts, and when baby is brand new it has helped with the bleeding and seeping from the umbilical cord as it heals. We would have had a few nice outfits ruined from blood spots without using onesies!
You’ll also want to include gowns for your baby on your registry. These are not just for girls. I promise. My husband was confused when I put our first son in a gown the first time…until he went to change him in the middle of the night. These are awesome-just slip it up, change baby and slip it back down. There are tons out there but I adore Burt’s Bees, as well as their entire line of baby clothes!

This post contle 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!
