Publisher's Summary

For Addison Fairchild, success is a guarantee. Groomed since childhood to run a division of Fairchild Enterprises, she takes her birthright seriously. Maybe a little too seriously, if you ask her friends. But work is so much easier than the rest of her life. Her employees hate her, her best friend is worried about her, and her last date was hide-in-the-restroom awkward. If all that wasn't bad enough, she's stuck with a new cheerful-happy-annoyingly-morning-person assistant, just when the head of FE is about to choose a successor - a job Addison wants so badly, she can taste it.

For Katie Cooper, money has never been important. That is, until her father gets dementia and needs full-time care. As the bills start to pile up, Katie takes a second job as a temporary personal assistant. Two minutes and one spilled cup of coffee later, she's sure she's not ready for Addison Fairchild - her hard head, her know-it-all attitude, or her gorgeous face.

Forced to work together, Addison and Kate discover that opposites really do attract.

very good, but not the best from Georgia Beers

I love Georgia Beers' books! She writes witty dialogue between 2 likeable characters and always has some steamy sex scenes. This audiobook "Calendar Girl" is no exception. I even liked the uptight, business woman! I was rooting for them to get together, knowing they would within so many hours anyway ha Ok, even though I enjoyed this listen and love Georgia Beers, if you want an amazing audiobook by her, check out "A Little Bit of Spice". That's one of my all time favorite audiobooks:)

Potential

I purchased this book due to it being one from Georgia and I felt the storyline had a lot of potential. I love my lesbian novels and Georgia always rises to the occasion but I feel this one lacked more of the story. The narrator who I have heard several times I am sad to say is just not for me. Lovely voice indeed but it is the way she reads that does not work for me. I have a feeling millions of others love her as a narrator.

Good story, but some irritating issues

I received this audiobook for free in exchange for an unbiased review. I am a big Georgia Beers fan and always love her stories and character development. Calendar Girl did not disappoint as the characters were well done and the overall story was good. I loved Paige McKinney's performance. I especially love the deeper voice that she gives to the ice queen, Addison Fairchild, in the story. Despite all of the good in the story, there were some irritating points for me. Maybe I will have to listen to it again to get a different feel for aspects of the story. The passion between the two main characters is evident from the very beginning of the story. The sticking point I have is with Fairchild's mother and the "sexual harassment" policy that makes it impossible for two people that are dating in the workplace to continue working there. It causes Addison and Katie Cooper to fight their feelings and causes a lot of angst that shouldn't be there. Fairchild's mother is a character that I grew to hate in the story, a mother that groomed her kids to work as hard as they can and then penalizes one of them for doing her best. That one character took a lot away from the story for me. Overall, you can't go wrong with a story from Beers. Calendar Girl was good, but the way the story ended left me wanting more.

Overall great book with some crazy moments!

I enjoyed this book, as do I with most GB books. The characters were somewhat interesting and one had total a$$wipe moments i just could not believe, but she redeemed herself pretty nicely! I did have some laugh out loud bits as well. The narrator was good as usual, I could not complain. I would have like this too be a little bit longer and more depth with the relationship part, but it still was good. Overall, good book and I'd recommend it!

I kept listening despite the narrator. Something about the voice changing did not fit the characters and took away from the story overall . Read the book instead.

As good as the others, if not more..,.

THe only thing I don’t understand is why Ms Beers named this wonderful book Calendar Girl... It is a great story, romantic, but not too mushy, narration as always is great, Paige McKinney has a great voice and she narrates wonderfully. Looking forward to new books from Georgia Beers

Never Disappointed

Georgia Beers is never a let down. Such a good story filled with great characters. And I love how she pulls in parts/characters (Junebug Farms) from other books makes the story familiar and easy going.

Highly entertaining story

Addison and Katie’s story was artfully written and even the sex science was tastefully addressed. The characters were both interestingly described . The storyline provided both humor and some drama but overall this was a very enjoyable story .
