Mr January is one hot as hell bad boy and romantic ex-jailbird!

Even knowing Andy was a crim, my heart broke for him. Life inside had stagnated for him, while his wife had continued living and tried to move on ‘without him’. I was only 13% into the book and already so invested in Andy’s feelings. What I didn’t realise until later on, was that Dylan had her own struggles to deal with in his absence, and despite being an independent and professional woman in her right, things were extremely difficu

Andy and Dylan love each other, but seeing him in the back of a police car, than sentenced to three years in prison, was a lot, too much in fact, for her to take. She wants a divorce, but Andy, not a free man once again, insists he's innocent. Not only that, but he's determined to win her back. He never stopped loving her. despite the fact she kept sending him divorce papers while he was gone.

Dylan agrees to give him a second chance, her heart yearning for him even if her mind is saying to keep

This is the first book in the Calendar Boys series and believe me if I had my way Mr. January would be hanging around for the whole damn 12 months. Andy and Dylan's story is one that will have you hooked from the start, it will have you intrigued, on the edge of your seat and have you so entranced that you will not be able to put this book down. Their story is full of secrets, guilt, passion and an undeniable love that will be hard for either of them to walk away from. Truths will need to be fac ...more

Who knew a criminal could be so romantic (and sexy and down right drool worthy)?

Andy certainly makes you stop and think about things a different way. After getting out of prison he goes home and after the one thing he never wanted to let go... his wife.

But she’s not so keen on letting him back into her life. Can you blame her? After watching him get thrown in the back of a cop car and taken away in handcuffs, why should she give him another chance.

The only thing she didn’t count on was Andy’s do

This is the first book in a new series, and what a wonderful introduction this is! Andy had just been released from prison after serving 3 years, and the first thing he wants is his wife. Dylan just wants a divorce, and Andy wants to stay married, so he convinces her to make a deal with him. This is a beautifully written story, which is humorous, entertaining, emotional, heart-warming, gritty, intense, and a fantastic second chance romance story. I was totally captivated throughout this addictiv ...more

Mr January - Nicole S Goodin

Nicole Goodin’s new standalone was definitely a wonderful story.

Mr January introduces us to Andrew and Dylan and their less than perfect married life. Two very headstrong personalities but both, characters who endear themselves to you.

Andrew must prove his innocence to his estranged wife of a felony he’s already done time for but Dylan must overcome her mistrust and finally see to the core of the man she truely loves.

A great story setup and wonderful characters ma

Drew just spent three years in jail for a crime he insists he didn't commit. Dylan wants a divorce but she agrees to give Drew seven days to try and change her mind and give their marriage a second chance. What she didn't count on was Drew pulling all the stops to get her back, and boy, was I glad he did. The chemistry between those two was off the chart!

I laughed, I cried (mostly happy tears), and yes I totally wanted to be Dylan... Who wouldn't want a bad boy covered in tattoos who rides a Har
This is the first book in a series. I love a good second chance romance, and this one does not disappoint. I really like Dylan and Andy. They are perfect for each other. I really liked that they were able to overcome their past. I loved her friends, also. I am looking forward to reading the next installment in this series.

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

Mr. January - I made a mistake, I should have paid attention to the cover instead of the author's name. I love the books I've read so far by Ms. Goodin, but this one should be flushed.

"She’d tell me that I’m a strong, independent woman who ‘doesn’t need no man’ – complete with side-to-side finger snaps.
Only right now I don’t feel all that independent or strong, in fact I feel weak, like an alcoholic looking at a glass of whiskey." (Mr. January, locations 138 - 140.)

Andy’s just got out of jail and he hoped to see her soon, but Dylan makes it easy for him showing up right where he is. She wants the same thing she has for the last three years – a divorce that he hasn’t signed.
Dylan doesn’t want to admit but he gives her the same smirk that got to her years ago and he looks incredible, better since he’s out of prison. He refuses to sign the papers, being a thief was more important and she has to tell herself not to be weakened by him. Andy reminds her she neve

Oh lord I love the month January because I get to have a hot bad boy mechanic who loves to cook and is willing to put himself out there for his wife. I really loved this book because it had me on the edge of my seat reading and ignoring everything because I needed to know what was going to happen next.

Andy and Dylan are married and have a happy life until Andy gets arrested and goes to jail. Dylan tries to move on with her life while Andy is in prison but it is hard because she still loves him.

I love Nicole's writing and I think that this is going to be a fun series. My only criticism of this book is that it was a bit short and seemed a little rushed I would have liked a bit more depth and angst between the two main characters but otherwise it was a good read.

Andy has been in prison for three years and his wife has given up on him, and has only been in contact to get divorce papers served on him. Andy refuses to sign the papers and wants to get his wife back. Unfortunately, when she

Mr. January the first installment of the Calendar Boys by Nicole S. Goodin.

Mr. January is a second chance romance between Andy and Dylan as they figure out the worth of their love for each other as they navigate through secrets, guilt and undeniable passion.

However, it’s proven to become difficult when one wants to shed light on the truth while the other wants to bury everything in the past.

For me, Mr. January was interesting for not everything was predictable. I love the wit, and strong will

Mr. January by Nicole S. Goodin is the first book in a new series, Calendar Boys, and is a second chance romance. Andrew Woodman loves his wife, Dylan Davies. He is just out of prison and determined to win her back. Even if she wants to have nothing to do with him. She wants to divorce him and move on. But can she deny the chemistry that is still there?

Wow, wow, wow! I took a chance on Mr. January because the heroine was a redhead, and I’m so glad I did! It was such a great read, and I devoured it in one sitting!

Talk about the immovable object meeting the irresistible force! Dylan is a fiery redhead. She is stubborn, independent, and doesn’t back down. Andy is cocky, stubborn, and persistent. He has tattoos and a motorcycle. (Be still my beating heart!) The heat between them is sizzling!

The plot was unique; I haven’t read anything like it. I’m
i truly enjoyed this book!! you felt bad for both sides Andrew/Andy/Drew (so many nicknames lol) for doing 3 years of jail for a crime he didnt do and Dylan for dealing with 3 years without her husband and some major stuff that went down.
Another thing i enjoyed about Andrew he was faithful in jail (he was no bitch or taking any guy also no manwhore!!) those 5 days he was out of jail he only thought of one person. thats a true alphaa one woman man!! even if his wife wanted a divoce he fought bac

Andy has spent the last three years in jail, and he is determined to regain the life that was taken from him. He has the job so now all he has to do is convince his wife to give him a second chance but the only thing she wants to give him is divorce papers.

Dylan is fiery and feisty and has spent the last three years trying to get over Andy. Andy is just as sexy and suave as ever and somehow, he has convinced her to give him seven days to show that they belong together.

This is a story of healing

Dylan wants to more forward with her life and now with her ex out of prison all she wants is a divorce. Andy wants what he missed all these years in prison...his wife. He is stunned when she storms into his office and demands he sign divorce papers. However not so stunned that he couldn't come up with a counter proposal for her. Give him one week to win her heart back Dylan should be surprised but she's not. She gives him his one week. Will Andy be able to win his wife back?

Andy spend 3 years in prison for a crime he says he didn’t commit. Dylan is the wife he left behind. She was completely in love until he became a criminal. She wants a divorce and he wants to keep her. Can he convince her to believe in him again?

This story was heartbreaking. I can’t imagine how horrible it must have been for Dylan to watch the love of her life being hauled to jail.

Mr. January is a fun read. The banter between Andy and Dylan makes you laugh. Loved that the characters had to learn

He wants to stay married he loves her and he is determined to keep her. So he makes her a deal, the will live as a married couple for a week and if at the end she still wants the divorce, he will sign the paper.
She agrees but no sex, they will be like friends sharing a place. Spend the time with them as they spend a week getting to know each other again.

Andy is a bad boy, recently released from prison, trying to rebuild the life he had before everything went pear shaped.
Dylan is a fiery woman who doesn’t take shit from anyone, least of all her ex-husband, Andy.
