Synopsis

A muse. Me. The motorcycle riding, ass-kicking, concert t-shirt wearing chick from Las Vegas, is a world-renowned French artist’s muse. For a month.

I had no idea when I took the escort job with Exquisite Escorts I would be standing naked in front of a blank canvas in a Seattle warehouse.“Love on Canvas” he calls his exhibit, a combination of photographic stills and paint entwined to create the most awe-inspiring pieces the world will ever see. Except every last one of them features me and a moment in time where I was vulnerable.Alec Dubois played on those vulnerabilities, teaching me lessons about love and life that would stay with me through the rest of my days.
***

Mia Saunders continues her mission to bail out her comatose father whose life is on the line to a dangerous loan-shark who happens to be Mia’s ex-boyfriend. For this journey, she serves as a high-priced escort to French artist named Alec Dubois in Seattle, Washington.

Each installment in the Calendar Girl Serial will release every month throughout 2015. The stories 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.

Michelle’s Review – ♥♥♥♥

I’ve been waiting to read February to see how Audrey is going to write Mia’s escorting with future clients and after this I’m on the fence. I honestly can’t see liking her six months in if she really is going to fancy and spread her legs (which is for ‘extra’ money and not part of the escorting per se….) for every new client she gets each month.

Alec was indeed a pretty great Frenchie ☺ But even just in this book 2 I’m struggling to get past the possible ‘whoring’ element with Mia. If she had that good a connection with Wes well then what the fcuk is she doing now! Can’t she be an honest escort and not have to give it up for each bloke? Yeah well I can then see that not being viable in pertaining to writing a book about each chap she’s going to meet (sorry screw) each month.

Audrey still has me captured, I’m not sure for the right reasons, I’m probably coming across a tad archaic but I do get each to their own. There’s nothing wrong in being promiscuous but this is bordering on it for the entirely wrong reasons. Especially when her pride wouldn’t let her take Wes’ way out in January. Well where’s her pride gone now? Yeah out the window as fast as her knickers seem to with each new client.

I can’t fault the writing, Audrey delivers hot and delivers it very well indeed. I truly felt I was in Alec’s studio and his apartment, I felt I was posing for the paintings too, I could almost smell the chinese that first night. So I really applaud Audrey on her writing skills, she just needs to give my ‘morality’ a bit of a pep talk and tell it calm down ☺

If that opt out hadn’t been there from the start, then I don’t think my moral side would be having fisty cuffs at dawn with my laid back and ‘oooh good for her side’… I am intrigued to see what March has installed and hope that Audrey allows us to be part of her tour for what’s in store next. I’m still awarding this 4 stars because it’s totally worth it, let’s hope this series can remain the top end of the scale for me.

I received a copy of February in return for an honest review, my reviews are my own and are 100% honest.

Rob’s Review – ♥♥♥♥

So the story continues of Mia and her year long Escorting.

So this is going to sound extremely sexist but there is nowt attractive about a slut. Mia is a needy little slut. Yes I can laugh at man-whores and their sexual habits but reading about a girl who proclaims to be too proud for Wes to pay off her Father’s debts to stop her having to escort for a year, yet she’s not too proud to sleep with total strangers seems a little contradictory to me. Sluts are sluts, not wife material or even girlfriend material.

Mia is not going to be ideal girlfriend/wife material at the end of 12 months. If she thinks she’s going to have her HEA with Wes, which is the way the inner dialogue suggests, then she needs to be an Escort and not a dirty slapper.

I think during her month with Frenchman Dubois, his philosophy kind of leant towards it being ok to have sex because sex can be put into a little box of being just a physical act and you’re not actually betraying anyone if you don’t give them a piece of your heart. Yep, well good luck spending another 10 months shagging your way round the world thinking it’s ok because some arty farty painter told you that!

Ms Carlan is an excellent writer and managed to paint (no pun intended) each scene well using her own unique style. I enjoy reading how she phrases things, how she adds in plenty of sexy time while still keeping the story moving forward.

I am interested in where this story is going but to be honest, if every month it’s going to be another hot alpha male that Mia is going to lust for and sleep with then I’m afraid I will probably last til the Summer until I’m totally disgusted by Mia!

I hope Mia keeps up with her Kegel exercises cos another 10 months of constant shagging and she’s gonna have a fanny like a bucket!
