June by Audrey Carlan
Series: Calendar Girl, story #6
Genre: contemporary romance
Politics, phallic statues, and pretty women.
Literally everywhere you look, you see an old man and a gold-digging, cling-on wrapped around their wrinkly arms.
Looks as though my hot streak ended when Warren Shipley, one of the nation’s wealthiest men, hired me to play arm-candy to save face with the other one percenters he did business with. At least that’s what I thought when I arrived in Washington, DC, until I was met by old man Shipley’s debonair and insanely handsome son. The Senator from California, Aaron Shipley. Youngest senator in the history of politics, single, beyond rich, and the face of every political magazine around the US. Women everywhere wanted a taste of that power.
Me, I’d always thought politics were boring…boy was I wrong. Democracy had never been more exciting.
In the sixth book of the Calendar Girl serial, Mia is sent to our nation’s capital, Washington, DC. Still on her mission to save her father, she embraces the life of a gold-digging mistress in order to get a life-saving project off the ground.
Mia is back, another town and another city. Each month, I fall more and more in love with Mia’s character. Her choices, her chances and her ethics. The unconventional cupid is at it again, this time with an older gentleman.
There’s always a concern with serials that the storyline will get old but Carlan adds eclectic characters matched with witty writing and it all works. One of my favourite matchings makes a reappearance and the heat factor is still high.
One thing that I will say – this story takes a darker twist – and it would be remise of me to not mention that there might be triggers for my fellow readers. I love the long distance sexting between Wes and Mia, I’m hanging out for December to see if they get their happy ever after, but I’m not holding my breath for it
I was given a copy of this story for free for my honest opinion and I have to say – I read a lot of serials and this is in my top three.
