March by Audrey Carlan

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!

“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

Tai-sexy model

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.

Happy Reading

Only Forever by Cristin Harber #BlogTour #Review @CristinHarber

Genres: Contemporary Romance

of-releaseday

Goodreads Button with Shadow

The fourth and final installment of the Only series. Must be read in order.

There comes a time when Emma must face the secret she kept from Grayson. But she never thought it would be while she stood on stage at Emerald’s. The seconds she has to convey that her life is in danger are lost in the devastation that she sees rip through him.

She pinches her eyes closed. “Don’t leave me. No matter how mad you are, please, please don’t leave me here alone.”

But there’s more on the line than just Emma’s safety. There’s the danger that brought Titan’s Delta team in to the strip club in the first place. A threat that’s too close to home, too close to the family, the daughter and woman Grayson plans to claim.

I push away the sudden spring of fear. Life’s too unknown, with hidden enemies and unseen terrors. The idea that I could lose her again… it’s unbearable.

A love story like Grayson and Emma needs a forever love, and somehow they’ll find their way to her fairytale.

This is the final installment in the Forever Series by Cristin Harber.  We finally get our answers and the lid is blown off of some “sort of” secrets.  What’s better?  We get to meet the men of Titan.  This girl DID NOT know there was an entire series devoted to these men (there are 8 books in the series).  Guess who will be adding these books to her TBR?

This final step with Gray to see him slip into the man he is supposed to be and will become is wonderful.  In the previous books, we’ve seen Gray struggle to be strong and break from his awful past.  Though the past helps shape who you are as a person, it does not dictate your future.  Gray is a prime example of this!

Emma is a bit more of a mess in this book.  She’s had to keep everything together for so long on her own.  It feels like her life unravels a bit, but, for once, she has a real safety net.  She has Gray.  Even though they found each other in the last book, this book really focuses on them coming together as a couple and as a family.  There are struggles and hard times, but they are not insurmountable because they have each other.

The book moves pretty quickly.  There are some really gritty details that are brushed away in a quick manner.  Maybe it was done to tie up the series cleanly.  Especially since those gritty details belong more to the men of Titan.  I guess I’ll have to read that series to find out!

The writing is consistent through the entire series and you definitely get closure with the characters.  A very sweet ending to what was often a tumultuous ride.  Though not my favorite book in the series, it was still worth reading.

I’m the selfish one. I suppose that’s the nicest thing people say about me. I’ve heard the other things, too. “Paige Owens is a pretty girl with nothing else to offer. She’s just a good time at a party. She’s stupid, heartless, cold and useless. All she cares about is getting a guy to look at her. Why would anyone want to be her friend?”

Some of those things are true. Others were true. They’re all hurtful.

None of it matters.

I’m ready to make the hard choices. I’m ready to face the consequences. I’m ready to be the girl I was before, and I’m done being the one who lost her way.

I’m ready to become the girl Houston Orr sees when he looks at me.

Houston isn’t a star athlete. He doesn’t play in a band. He’s never going to be president, and his life is so far away from simple and easy it isn’t even funny.  He wasn’t part of my plan. But I’m starting to think plans are overrated, and maybe our stories are what we make them. And mine depends entirely on me, and the choices I make…starting now.

Houston is my fairytale. He’s perfectly imperfect. He’s poetry and life. He’s truth and heartbreak, all rolled up in a tall body with dark hair, broad shoulders and green eyes that lull me into submission. He’s nothing I ever thought I wanted, but the very thing I need. He’s the only guy I’ve ever really loved, and he thinks I’m a princess. I fell into him, and now I’m holding on.

But sometimes life takes away our ability to choose. Sometimes…things aren’t in your control. Sometimes, it hurts to be selfless. My only hope is that when it comes time to choose, I get it right.

Welcome to my once upon a time and wish for happily ever after.
