Unbound is the second book in the three-part Uninhibited series by author Lauren Hawkeye.  This is not a standalone, so you need to read Untamed first.

This story begins right where we were left off.  Jasper is still protecting Cari and the two have become closer both physically and emotionally.    Jasper informs Cari of some of his sexual interests and she needs to decide if she’s on board with it!  Will Cari decided to go for it?  Can Jasper still protect her?

Looking forward to the third part in the series!!

 

“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.

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.

 

Untamed is the first in the three-part Uninhibited series by Lauren Hawkeye.  This was a quick and steamy read which focuses on Dr. Cari Dunn, an archaeologist who is the star of the reality show ‘Digging Discoveries with Dr. Dunn’.

Cari is currently being threatened and her producer and the network hires a body guard, Jasper Benjamin, to ensure her safety.  The chemistry between Cari and Jasper is sizzling and Cari goes out of her way to get Jasper’s attention.

A great first book in the series and I look forward to the next two!
