This volume includes the first, second, and third International Guy novellas from #1 New York Times bestselling author Audrey Carlan.

My name is Parker Ellis. You can call me The Dream Maker.
This is where my story begins.

There’s a world of women waiting for me, but my journey
starts here, in three cities: Paris. New York. Copenhagen.

International Guy Inc. is owned and operated by Parker Ellis, a ladies’ man with a high IQ and a big libido. He’s the most successful life and love coach in the world, and he’s smart enough to know he can’t run a multimillion-dollar company alone.

He hires two friends whose areas of expertise complement his own. They comprise The Dream Maker, The Love Maker, and The Money Maker.
Together, they advise the wealthiest people in the world: Hollywood hotshots, European royalty, and the CEOs of multibillion-dollar companies. And sometimes they can’t help it when things heat up and they end up in bed with their clients. Quite literally.

This International Guy likes his playboy lifestyle, and he’s not looking for commitment. After all, there’s a whole world waiting for him.  But as he goes from city to city, and from woman to woman, it’s possible that he just might find his own love along the way…

My Thoughts:

This book is broken down into three parts.  If you’re a very busy person and have only a little time to get your reading fix in than this would be a good choice.  Plus you get to go places without leaving your chair.  The sad part is that I’m not there to go on their journeys so I will have to rely on the characters to make me feel like I’m there with them.

One way to do that is like in the first book where we get to travel to Paris.  The man that’s acting as our guide, Parker Ellis, is needed to help Sophie Rolland.  As a native she of course speaks French and our author includes words and phrases that you may or may not understand.  I didn’t mind that because it did its job by having me looking forward to the possibility of travel.  What I liked best about her story though was how she blossomed into a woman who successfully runs a business.

As the next story begins we’re back at the office as Parker meets his newest employee Wendy Bannerman.  I have to say that I enjoyed meeting her and was left wanting to read more about her.  Then Parker’s off again and this time he takes us to New York.  Can you imagine having a job where you can use your life skills to help others?  But for Parker they always seem to be women – and yes that means that sometimes lines get blurred.  This time his job is to help Skylar Paige get past her life crisis and to rediscover herself.  What I found sad about this story is how much physical appearance rules her life.  It’s kind of a reminder how much actors and actresses go through just so we can enjoy their work.

Our last stop in our international travel is to Copenhagen where we get to meet royalty.  But Parker starts off not being able to forget a woman and that was a surprise – especially since he seems to be a hound dog.  Maybe that’s part of his pull for us – to see if he grows up.  In this story we get some of his personal background and that was an interesting surprise.  Not all this story is about Parker though.  In this story we are introduced to Christina Kaarsberg.  Of the three stories, this seemed the most challenging.  Here’s another story where the language is confusing but it helps to transport me to this latest country.  But he may have his work cut out for him in this one.

Something that was interesting about this set is that even though these three stories are told from Parker’s point of view, the author allows us to get to hear one of the women.  If you want to know who that woman is then you’ll just have to get this volume.  This set was a good choice for me since I hadn’t read the books individually.  It did leave me curious about three things.  One, has Parker changed.  Two, will I get to see more of his partners.  Three, what country will I be visiting next.  My chair and I are ready.

Start with book 1, Paris, today!
