Well, here we are. The time has flown and now we're at the end, but before the credits roll, check out Day Five of Sawyer Week! Enjoy!
Sawyer gives Buster a bath… Or tries to, anyway.
“Come on, boy,” Sawyer called to Buster, making his way through the living room toward his bedroom. Without missing a beat, Sawyer went right to the bathtub and turned on the water. While the tub filled, he glanced over at the door, expecting to see Buster standing there.
He didn’t expect Buster to be merrily wagging his tail because, it was true, his dog didn’t particularly care for baths, but Buster had always eventually given in.
Didn’t look as though that were the case today.
“Buster!” Sawyer yelled, hoping the little dog could hear him in the other room. “Come on, buddy. It’ll take five minutes.”
Sawyer sat on his haunches, waiting for Buster to come running. It’d never taken more than two requests before.
“What’re you doin’ in here?”
Sawyer’s gaze lifted to Kennedy as she stepped into the doorway of the bathroom.
“Tryin’ to get him in the bath, but he’s ignorin’ me.” Raising his voice a little, he called out to Buster again.
Kennedy smiled, but that quickly morphed into a full-fledged laugh.
“What’re you laughin’ at?” Sawyer asked.
“Nothin’,” she said, through bouts of giggling.
“I just thought your powers of persuasion generally got you whatever you wanted.”
Turning off the water, Sawyer got to his feet, staring down into the half-filled tub before smirking at Kennedy again.
“Are you losin’ your touch, cowboy?”
Sawyer glared at her, fighting a grin.
“Stay there, I’ll get him,” Kennedy said sweetly, a wide smile on her face.
“Good luck,” Sawyer told her. “If he won’t come in here when I call, he ain’t gonna…”
“Good boy,” Kennedy crooned at Buster, who appeared in the doorway beside Kennedy. “Wanna get a bath?”
Sawyer stepped out of the way as Kennedy continued to sweetly convince Buster to follow her into the bathroom.
“You’ll have to put him in there yours—”
“Jump in,” Kennedy instructed and sure as shit, Buster jumped right up onto the edge of the tub and then into the water, splashing Kennedy and making her laugh.
Sawyer stared blankly at the scene before him. “How’d you do that?”
Kneeling on the floor beside the tub, Kennedy glanced up at him over her shoulder, a mischievous gleam in her eyes. “Looks like you’re better with the ladies, Sawyer. I suggest you don’t give up your day job.”
Sawyer moved closer, dropping to his knees behind her, nuzzling his mouth to her ear. “For the record, I’m good with one lady. And how do you know I didn’t do this on purpose, just so I didn’t have to give him a bath?”
“Because I know you,” she whispered. “You’re not that good.”
Oh, he was that good.
And in a few minutes, once they were alone, without the inquisitive brown eyes of his dog peering up at them, he’d show her.
Thank you to everyone who took part in Sawyer Week! We definitely hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!!
The week is coming to a close! Not to fear, there's still 2 days left to enter the Sawyer Week giveaway and word is there will be a little something special for y'all on Day Five!!
Questions for Sawyer
What is your favorite body part?
Sawyer: On me? Or on a woman? That’s an important clarification, you know? If you’re talkin' about me, I’d have to say my… hands. I’m quite good with my hands. And if you’re talkin' about a woman, I’d have to say her… lips.
If you suddenly found yourself turned into a woman, how would you spend your day?
Sawyer: *laughs* Do you really want to know? I mean hell, give me boobs and expect me not to thoroughly inspect them? That’s just plain wrong.
What’s the most embarrassing thing you've ever done?
Sawyer: It takes a lot to embarrass me, honestly. I mean I've been known to stand shirtless on the side of the road holding a sign that says will work for sex. I've also streaked at a high school football game—granted, I was in high school at the time. I've gone into a grocery store in only my underwear on a dare—no, I wasn't in high school. You get the picture though, right?
Who’s your favorite brother?
Sawyer: *laughs* Do you want to get me beat up? I definitely can’t pick one.
If the world froze for an afternoon and only you could move and no one could see you or remember what you did, what would you do?
Sawyer: That’s an interesting question. I think I’d rummage around in people’s wallets and look at their driver’s license pictures. Seriously, that would be fucking funny.
Did your adoption of Buster help in any way in your attempts to win Kennedy's attention?
Sawyer: No. At least I don't think so. When I initially started volunteering at the animal shelter - back when Kennedy tricked me - I'd had an agenda. One that involved getting her regardless of what it took. When I first saw Buster, it didn't even dawn on me that he'd be a chick magnet. Although Kennedy likes him, I don't think Buster had much sway in getting her to fall for me.
Describe yourself in a single word. Sawyer: Motivated.
If you're lost, do you ask for directions?
Sawyer: Uh, no. I’ve got a man card to secure. That doesn’t mean I’m not beyond checking it out on my GPS.
If you had to go through life without one specific article of clothing, what would you choose to live without?
Sawyer: Shirt, hands down. I'm quite comfortable without a shirt on.
We asked Sawyer a few questions from his fans and he graced us with some answers that you can read below (stay tuned for more questions throughout the week):
How do you feel about so many people being excited to read your book?
Sawyer: It’s very cool. I know I've got a lot of pressure on me, especially when you consider my brothers and how very popular they are. But, I think I can hold my own.
Did you get any interesting propositions when you were standing roadside with the sign?
Sawyer:Of course. That was part of the motivation. Getting people’s attention comes easily for me. And, sometimes I get bored, hence the sign. Let’s just say there were quite a few ladies who were quite interested in putting me to work.
That's right! Today is the release of Sawyer, Alluring Indulgence #7, and officially the start of Sawyer Week!!
Hey, y'all! It's me, Sawyer... I thought I'd take a minute to reach out, say hello, find out if you're plannin' to read my book, let you know that it's out. You know, all the good stuff. I have to say, I've been waitin' for this day for a while now. And I'm not just talkin' about my story being out. I'm talkin' about gettin' the girl!
Yes. You heard me. I. Got. The. Girl. But, did you ever doubt me?
Well, that's all I've got. Hope you have a fantastic week!
From New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Nicole Edwards comes the seventh book in her Alluring Indulgence series, erotic romances featuring the Walker brothers from Coyote Ridge, Texas, and their sizzling-hot love interests.
Sawyer Walker has never run into problems with women. The female population tends to swarm toward him, in fact, and he’s never had a complaint.
But there’s one woman Sawyer has always had his eye on. A woman who won’t give him the time of day. In recent months, it would seem that Kennedy Endsley is opening up to Sawyer, but she’s got a few surprises in store for him. Because, as hard as she finds it to resist the handsome Walker brother, she won’t give in easily. Not when her heart is on the line.
