**Blog Tour** Goodbye Caution by Jacquelyn Ayres

Goodbye Caution

by Jacquelyn Ayres

Hosted by: Bare Naked Words

Becca Campbell is a mother, friend, and widow to a war hero (may he rot in hell). She just wants to raise her daughter right and keep her bed-and-breakfast afloat in this economy. Her traumatic past leaves her with no desire for a relationship—until Grayson James walks through her door. He’s not the type of man you can easily say “no” to. Becca can’t quite understand the pull she feels toward him. But then his controlling nature starts to push her away—and into Ray McNeil’s comforting arms. Which is right where Ray has always wanted her.

Who will Becca choose?

Will she finally give in to her feelings for Ray, or continue the tumultuous relationship with Grayson? Only one thing is certain—either choice will mean saying goodbye to caution. 

Warning: This book contains some disturbing situations, dubious consent, strong language and violence.

I am a Domestic Engineer (born and raised in NJ) whose sole responsibility is to guide three young impressionable kids into becoming phenomenal adults. This challenging, yet rewarding work requires a lot of love (coffee), patience (wine) and determination (periodic exorcisms). I work all of this magic in the beautiful state of New Hampshire.

Before becoming a Domestic Goddess (not really), I spent over a decade working in the medical field where I wore more hats than the Queen.

I have had a love for the written word and the great escape it provides since I was a little girl. When I wasn't reading about people and the places they lived, I was creating my own characters and adventures. Finally, I have been putting a pen to paper allowing my characters to come to life. When I don't have a pen and paper in hand, you can often find me laughing at the conversations my characters are having in my head.

If you are looking for a wipe tears from your eyes, laugh out loud, Hot love story then look no further. Goodbye Caution will take you on a journey full of laughter, love, lust, anger, betrayal and a whole lot more. It's a rollercoaster ride that you will not want to get off from.

For 7 years Becca Campbell has been a single mother to her 10 year old daughter, Morgan, after the death of her abusive, S-O-B husband. Between running her B&B, Scrapbooking club & store, looking after the stables and being a mum, Becca has no time or interest in having a relationship or finding love. Instead she creates a strong relationship and family with her employees. But, that is all about to change when a new visitor comes to stay at the B&B and turns her life on its axis.

"I was being poisoned by the intoxicating smell that is Grayson James. British, beautiful, lovely scent ... I'm doomed".

Enter Grayson *Gray* James, the nephew of her most valued employee and mother figure Hazel.  Orphaned at a young age, it was Hazel who brought him up as her own. Needing to get away from his home in California, he decides to take his Auntie’s offer to go and visit.  What he wasn't planning was the beauty who would steal his breath away. And through his persistence and stubbornness, vows to make her his.

"I'm not going anywhere. Not here", I touch my temple. "Or here", I put my hand over my heart. "I'm completely smitten with you. It's insane, I know. This is not the reaction I am familiar with. I'm in uncharted water here, Becca. But I want to explore them with you."

Becca and Gray's relationship develops fast in such a short amount of time. But it works. The connection they have runs soul deep. Gray gets Becca in ways no-one else could and they are a perfect fit. And it also helps that Morgan loves him, and he loves her. She has him wrapped around her little finger.

"We are going to work out, sweetheart. I love you. I love her, too. I've never felt anything like it. I took pride in calling her my daughter today, and I loved hearing her call me 'daddy'. It was the most beautiful sound I've ever heard". ~ Grayson

"I'm in love with him. I'm in love with him and Morgan together. I'm in love with our out-of-the-ordinary, out-of-the-blue family. I feel like for the first time in twelve years, I can relax and take life in. I am content. I never knew what that meant until now". ~ Becca

But, it's not all rainbows and butterflies. Things start happening and Grayson's controlling and protectiveness pushes Becca away into the arms of her best male friend Ray.

Ray is lovely. He's the all American type of guy. Single father and has been in love with Becca for quite a while now. So when Becca runs to him, he's more than happy to be the person to comfort her. Soon after, Becca gets very confused with her feelings and starts questioning everything.
Crazy ideas are formed by the two men to try and help Becca decide.

Amusing text battles are sent back and forth between Grayson and Ray-- and by God what a pissing contest.

But what it comes down to.  Who will Becca choose????

I am completely 100% Team Grayson on this.  Sorry, Ray, I do like you. But come on---who wouldn't want a 6ft 4", smoking hot, wealthy British man??

I LOVE this book. I love the characters. Becca is such a strong woman for what she endured in the past with her husband and is an amazing mum. Her inner personalities 'Sybil's' are just hilarious and will have you laughing constantly.

Morgan, she is the most sweet, intelligent and funny little girl ever. You can tell she's Becca's daughter.

Hazel is so lovely. Even at 70, she shows you it's never too old to fall in love. She wears her heart on her sleeve and is an amazing Mother/grandmother figure for Becca and Morgan.

Grayson.~sighs~ Where do I start?? I love him. Simple as that. He is the perfect person for Becca. He loves her and Morgan and isn't afraid to fight for that love. He's persistent. He's protective. He's straight talking.  Yes I wanted to shout at him quite a few times in the book, but I still love him. Oh and it helps that he knows just how to make her 'pray'. And shit, its HOT AS HELL!!!

Ray, is lovely. If you like the all American type. In my eyes, he's the safe option for Becca. And although I know he loves her, and would do anything to make her happy. I just don't think he's the right choice. 

But I'll let you decide that for yourself.

 I absolutely adore this author and I am itching to get my hands on the next instalment to this series. I want to know what's going to happen next, and by the little teasers Jacquelyn has given us on her fb page and Twitter I can see it being another rollercoaster ride of emotions. I CANT WAIT!!!

 Jacquelyn is definitely an author to look out for, with her comedic wit, hot alpha males and brilliant story lines you know for a fact she's going to bring us many more amazing books in the future.

Go and grab your copy of Goodbye Caution now!! Believe me, you will not be disappointed.

Claire's Review.

Ok - for a start this book is as funny as it is sexy!!

Becca has her life back on track after the death of her abusive husband, she runs a niche business, works hard and really doesn't have the time or inclination to involve a man in it.

Enter Grayson! He literally explodes into her life and turns it upside down, he's demanding, controlling and sexy AS!!

** How about this? I insert two fingers inside of her. Shes already wet. Yes, she practically cries **

He falls in love with her daughter and the feeling is reciprocated making things even harder for Becca. 

Throw into the mix a very strange agreement between Gray and Becca's 'best male friend that's in love with her', a madman and a 'best female friend who has had a brain transplant' and i think that this book will keep you on your toes! and laughing out loud!
