Take me Down by Lauren Hawkeye Blog Tour (Guest Post & Giveaway)

Today we have author Lauren Hawkeye joining us on her Take me Down blog tour with a guest post. You can check out Lexy's review of Take me Down *here*

What a great blog to guest at... boy, do I ever love wine!

Speaking of wine, I ‘forced’ a couple of glasses of the good stuff on Evie, the heroine of Take Me Down, then asked her a few questions. She’s normally pretty shy, even has a stutter, but the vino helped her relax... hey, doesn’t it do that for us all?????

LAUREN: Thanks for doing this, Evie. I know you don’t like having the attention focused on you.
EVIE: (squirms uncomfortably in seat, then gulps at her wine). Can we get on with this, please?

LAUREN: Well, let’s start with the obvious question here. Red or white?
EVIE: (Looks down at her glass). I like a nice glass of red once in a while... maybe a merlot... but I don’t like to overdo it.

LAUREN: Moving on, tell us about Lucas. When did you meet him for the first time?
EVIE: (Squirms some more). I met him last summer. He’s my cousin Eric’s roommate. That’s all.

LAUREN: (Raises an eyebrow). Oh, I don’t think that’s all, Evie. A guy who looks like that? One who you’ve had a crush on for a whole year? Come on, spill.
EVIE: I don’t want to talk about it. It’s private.

LAUREN: Well, it’s not too private, since people can go read your story right now. So just tell me, why didn’t it happen last summer? Why did you only get together now?
EVIE: (Casts a disgruntled look at Lauren). I was different last summer. I tried harder to make people like me. I dyed my hair, wore lots of makeup, went out to bars. It didn’t work, and I didn’t like myself too much. So I just went back to being me.

LAUREN: Seems like that worked out okay for you, didn’t it? Lucas seems to like it, after all.
EVIE: (Puts down wine glass, now empty, and stands up). I’m really done talking about this now. Everyone will just have to go buy the book.

Find out how Evie and Lucas get together in Take Me Down, now available at and !

Evie may feel like she doesn’t measure up to her prettier, younger sister, but she still knows what she wants—Lucas, her cousin’s sexy roommate. She’s dreamed about being with him for a long time, and on the sweltering night of her sister’s wedding, it’s clear he shares her lust. Now Evie is determined to take what she desires—even if it’s just for one night….
Book One of Lauren Hawkeye’s Erotic Me series.

Lauren Hawkeye is a writer, theatre enthusiast, knitting aficionado and animal lover who lives in the shadows of the great Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada.
