Swimsuits, sun, surfing, and a sexy Samoan. I headed to the island of Oahu, Hawaii to meet with cutting-edge swimsuit fashion designer, Angel D’Amico, to serve as head model for the “Beauty Comes in All Sizes” swimsuit campaign. The designer wants to show the world that beauty is not just a size two. My curves got me into this gig, and, the moment I laid eyes on my modeling “partner,” I’d never been happier with my buxom form.
Tai Niko had everything the average man lacked. Height, broad shoulders, a nipped in waist, square pecs, tree trunk thighs, and a look that rivaled “The Rock.” The part that made me drool and weakened my knees, was the thick, intricate tribal tattoos running down the entire left side of his muscled frame from shoulder to ankle. The design was unlike anything I’d ever seen, and I couldn’t wait to trace the tips of my fingers over every inch.
In the fifth book of the Calendar Girl serial, Mia is sent to Oahu, HI. Still on her mission to save her father, she embraces the model life to prove beauty really does come in all sizes.
Each installment in the Calendar Girl Serial will release every month throughout 2015. The stories will feature Mia’s 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.

The Calendar Girl novella series continues with Mia heading home to Las Vegas for a quick stop, then going onto Hawaii for a modeling assignment. The first thing that pops out at me about the storyline of May, the fifth installment in Audrey Carlans’ Calendar Girl series, is that in May get a more detailed picture of Mia and her relationship with her sister Maddy. Maddy is the key reason that Mia signed up for a year in her aunt’s escort business. The work she does, the money she makes, is all about protecting Maddy from the potential wrath in the payback for their fathers’ gambling marker.
Maddy is refreshingly chaste and naive and Mia is a mama bear with her. But Mia’s absence is starting to show its impact, which just seems to drive Mia’s protective nature even more and it’s really quite endearing. In May, Mia also gets to spend a little more time with her bestie Ginelle, who is probably one of my favorite secondary characters in Audrey’s library. Their relationship, the banter, the jibs and jabs at each other point to a unique comfort level and the trust that they share is enviable. Mia’s strong self confidence makes her a joy to read. She started down a path, took the job purely for practical reasons, but quickly discovered that it would be a transformative time for her heart. Going into her May assignment, there was definitely an air of melancholy in her thoughts. Hell, I was sad and a little distraught for her. But in her trip to Hawaii, she finds that her emotional connection and expectations of Wes (Mr. January) is waning and she isn’t as preoccupied with his life.
Her adventures in her May assignment lead her straight into the arms of an extremely sexually charged men, Tai Niko, and makes this chapter in Calendar Girls series the STEAMIEST yet. This is Audrey’s finest erotic writing with the most sexually raw scenes. Tai Niko is sex incarnate and Mia is an extremely sexual individual – so the two connecting on this level is dazzling. Tai also treats Mia with an intense amount of respect – he seems to read her heart and uses their time in Hawaii together to remind her of her strength and uniqueness. So while her time and experiences with Tai replenish her slightly bruised heart and soul, Mia’s gift to Tai is to remind him that life works out the way its supposed to. She lightens the heaviness of his heart reminding him that “Things happen for a reason, we just might not know what the reason is.” Her lesson to Tai, keep your eyes and heart open to greatness.
Among the myriad of reasons that I love Audreys’ writing is the layered storylines and ultra witty dialogue – Mia has a strong hold on my heart and I’m thankful we have seven more installments to follow her path to happiness.
5 Stars and recommendation!
*I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review
“The ocean in our culture is very prominent, not only because we are surrounded by it, literally at its mercy, but because historically, Samoan’s believed that the ocean is kiss of longing,” Tai
This is the 5th book in the Calendar Series and needs to be read in order
The journey that Mia comes to this time is however is one of uniqueness, strength and of vulnerability with an excitement to boot. Her journey is that of taking friends and family with her on a revelation that will have you wanting so much. With hope on the horizon and stillness in her soul Mia takes this time to enjoy her life, to ponder of what could be and the wanting of tomorrow. Leaving all her stress on the table for another day she thrives in this model ship of emotions.
Mia is a model this time around and that of a plentiful desert in the making. Her co-model is of sexiness and hotness. The sex between Tai and Mia is that of molten lava cake in the making and the conclusion is that of sweetness with an explosive flavor that will have you craving more.
Mia’s journey continues in this next amazing read from Audrey Carlan. This author continues to amaze me with each word that comes out within her. Major Kudos yet again.
*This book was given to me for my honest review by the author.
Audrey Carlan is an Amazon Best Selling Author who writes erotic contemporary romances, such as the wildly popular “Falling Series.” She lives in the sunny California Valley two hours away from the city, the beach, the mountains and the precious…the vineyards. She has been married to the love of her life for over 10 years and has two young children that live up to their title of “Monster Madness” on daily basis. When she’s not writing, sipping wine with her “soul sisters”, or doing yoga, she can be found with her nose stuck in book or her Kindle. A hot, smutty, romantic book to be exact!
