Goodbye Caution (The Lost & Found Series #1)
Author: Jacquelyn Ayres
Release Date: 26 November 2013
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.

Excerpt“I’d like to kiss you again, sweetheart, before we go in there.” His voice doesn’t rise above a whisper as he leans in.
“Please. I just talked to you about this.” I turn my face away.
“Oh, yes, I do recall your lovely speech.” He smiles and cups my chin with his right hand to bring my face back to his. “Only trouble is, you’ve delivered it to the wrong guy. I’m a persistent,” he nudges my lips with his, “and impatient bloke.” Another nudge. “I’m afraid your words have fallen on deaf ears, sweetheart.” He kisses the corner of my mouth.
“Persistent and impatient.” I repeat the words breathlessly.
“Hmm . . . lethal combination, love.” The words are barely out, and he attacks my lips.
Character Interview- BeccaObviously you had reservations about Gray and Ray's plan to share your time, but all that aside, you had permission to enjoy two men! How much fun was that??
Can they hear me? No. They are in the other room.
Security hasn’t been in here? No. Why do you ask?
Umm . . . you have met Grayson, right? Oh. Quite right. No. No one’s been in here but us.
Ok. Let’s just say my Slip n’ Slide never saw a dry moment and thoroughly enjoyed the extensive playtime!
How do you cope with the restrictions 24 hour protection must impose? Well, it definitely hasn’t been easy—that’s for sure! I’ve had to let go—a lot! I’m very impatient. When I need to do something, I need to do it now! Waiting for my detail sucks sometimes. I’m blessed to have Melissa though! She makes it a bit more normal for me. With the exception of the handful I’ve gotten close to, well, it’s just—awkward! I mean how would you feel if there were people outside of your bedroom door every minute—hearing everything? I couldn’t be quiet with Grayson if I tried! So I had to ‘let go’. Now I just think of it like this, ‘Well, at least I’m keeping them all closer to God!’
Do you feel any guilt that you and Ray could have probably stayed friends if not for the arrangement? That’s the worst part of this. I was bound to lose one of them. Ray has been my best friend for about five years now. We’ve done everything together. I have to believe in my heart of hearts that eventually, things will mend between us. We love each other very much and on such a different level. I can’t see how anything can wipe that all away. But to answer your question—yes, the guilt is unbearable. I’ve handled this whole situation very poorly.
About the Author
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.
