Mr January is the first book in the Calendar Boys series and I have never enjoyed January so much, a fantastic start to the series taking you on a rollercoaster of emotions as Goodin gives you Andy and Dylan’s story.
3 years; that’s how long Andy has been away from his wife, when divorce papers kept showing up, he ignored them now that he is a free man It is hard to ignore her. When an ultimatum is given, he has 7 days to prove that she loves him. When the secrets start to surface Andy and Dylan are left reeling from the guilt and find solace in each other finally starting the life they deserve.
Andy is a mechanic, he loves hard and would do anything for his wife; being naive wasn’t a good idea for his future but he learnt his lesson the hard way. Dylan is strong, independent and a firecracker; she has demons that haunt her making her feel guilty every day.
“I told you he’s got even better looking.” “They should put him on a calendar or something, it’s just ridiculous.”
Andy and Dylan are not short on chemistry, they have it. Anytime they are in a room together you can feel the tension in the book rise, even with the guilt and secrets they cannot stop wanting each other; when you peel back the layers, they are raw and their sexual chemistry will burn through the pages.
This was my first time reading Goodin’s work and I personally loved every second of it, the idea of getting a new couple every month has me marking the days off the calendar waiting for the next installment.
