Publisher's Summary

It's really simple. I needed money. A lot of money. One million dollars to be exact. The amount didn't matter. All that mattered was that in the end, that price tag held my father's life.

No money. No life.

The time limit was one year. On January 1st I had to pay up or my Father was going to be killed.

When you're faced with an ultimatum like this, you do whatever you have to do.

And that's exactly what I did.

The job...Exquisite Escorts. My role, serve as high-priced arm candy to anyone that can afford the $100,000 price tag for a month of my company. Sex is optional (for me) and a 20% increase on the price.

Mia Saunders just barely escaped a paltry life back home in Las Vegas until she gets the call that her Father has been beaten to within an inch of his life for not paying his gambling debt. Problem is, the loan shark is her lousy, ruthless ex-boyfriend. Another guy in a long line of men she'd fallen head over heels for. Not anymore. Mia's mission is simple. Serve as a high-priced escort for her Aunt's company and pay monthly against her Father's bad debt. A month with a rich man who she doesn't have to sleep with if she doesn't want to? Easy money. At least that's the way it was supposed to go.

Each installment in the Calendar Girl Serial will feature Mia, told from her perspective as she continues her journey as an escort to twelve clients in twelve different locations.

Warning: This book is designed for audiences 18+ due to language and graphic sexual content.

    "Amazing!"

    I love this book and am looking forward to reading the whole series. I don't think it's better than Fifty Shades but it is its own story and so far it is enthralling, I know what books I'll be listening to by the pool this summer.

    Story
    "But Wes???"

    Narration, Summer Morton - Really Good! She has a great sounding voice and handles characters of both sexes quite well.

    The story? Hmmm. I'm not sure. I liked it and didn't like it. We have the "been there, done that" girl who's down on love coupled with the concept of the gambling father who gets pummeled into a coma and now the daughter has to bail him out to protect him, herself and her sister. She becomes an escort, but in order to make enough money to pay off the loan shark, who happens to be an ex - (yeah...I know, solid guy) her aunt (the "madame") suggests that she take month long jobs. She'll get 100K for each job and it'll be easier to make that kind of money. So, she sets up a payment plan with the loan shark, and all will be good in a year. Sex is not required and the organization can not charge a client for sex, (cause that would be prostitution) but if she chooses to have sex with the guy - that's her choice - and he's supposed to leave an envelope with an additional 20 K that's all hers to keep.

    So her first client Wes, is a screen writer who just needs a block to keep the chicks off him while he's networking at special events. Of course, she's delightful, he's a hunk-a-burnin' love and they fall into an easy and chemistry filled friendship (and into bed..with some rules, of course).

    It's a really good audiobook and I loved listening to it, but honestly - it's a little depressing, because there's really no HEA. You get all invested in the couple and they get invested in each other and them BAM - she's off to Mr. February.

    I have no idea, but I imagine all 12 of her guys are going to fall for her and she's going to leave each of them and I'm just ready to hear more about her and Wes. *sighs*

    This is another expensive serial albeit each "episode" almost seems like a standalone.
    I got this one in a sale, but would NOT use a credit on these - they're just too short and there are too many credit worthy books out there. Nearly 6 bucks a pop for the audio and 3 bucks each for the kindle so I may just be moving along on this one... or maybe I'll listen to just one more???

    "recommended"

    good story line but the plot could have been a little more developed.
    the reader was a little fast paced but still understandable.
    I would read it again.

    "good book"

    it was a good book, the only problem I had was when the narrator would deepen her voice when doing the guys voice. To me it was just awkward!

    "Fall in love with Mia and Wes!"

    The perfect introduction to characters you can't help but love. Mia hasn't had an easy life. Wes has had it beyond easy. Mia will do whatever it takes to take care of her family. Wes should be stuck up and full of himself, but he is just the opposite. They have a wonderful few weeks together. Such a shame to see them say goodbye. What a cliffhanger.

    This story has the perfect combination of love, lust and humor. The perfect first installment in an amazing series.

    Any additional comments?

    I thought this book was very sweet. It's more like a set of short stories as they are 100 pages each.

    It's about Mia who is forced to become an escort in order to pay off a load shark her father owes.

    Each month she meets a new client and writes a diary about what she learns about herself.

    Mia comes across very like able and makes you want to go on this adventure with her.

    Story
    "Great start to a great steamy book"
    Where does January rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book isn't the best but it ranks among the top of its class. The content is strong. Story is short but sets a great foundation. Ends with me wanting more.


    What other book might you compare January to and why?

    It is nothing like the other comparable books but it is similar to 50 shades and Crossfire series.


    Have you listened to any of Summer Morton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I don't recall another book I've listen to by Summer Morton. However, the narrator does a great job. The characters are easily distinguished by their voice diction and tone.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yea, I listen to most of this book in one setting. I started it late in my work day so the only reason I stopped was because I ran out of time.


    Any additional comments?

    Great start, I am excited to read the 2nd book. The book was full of everything one would expect from this story line. There are some really awkward use of words and a few phrases that were repeated but didn’t take away from the quality of the book. Narration was well played. I was disappointed in how short the stories were but don’t let the shortness deceive you. There is plenty of action and content. This needs to be on you must read list.
