This volume includes the fourth, fifth, and sixth International Guy novellas from #1 New York Times bestselling author Audrey Carlan.

My name is Parker Ellis. Making other people’s dreams a reality is what I do. It’s what I live for. Then I met Skyler Paige. She’s my every fantasy come to life, my dream woman. Regardless, that doesn’t mean I’m going to turn my back on clients who need International Guy’s services. I’m ready for it all—as my journey continues in three new cities: Milan, San Francisco, and Montreal.

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…

This volume includes the fourth, fifth, and sixth International Guy novellas.

My Thoughts:

This volume has three books in one.  With summer winding down, your life may have gotten a little busier and your reading time limited this would be a good choice.  Plus you get to go places without leaving your chair but we don’t get to really do any sightseeing. 

Our books are told from the point of view of Parker Ellis.  He seems to be the man in charge of a business that is about helping women who may be looking for a man – think Millionaire Matchmaker.  Or they need help with their business.  The sad part with these three books is that I didn’t feel the adventure of being taken to someplace that I’d never been before.  These stories were all about business but that could be because that’s where Parker’s head was at.

As I started the second book, San Francisco, I thought I was going to get to see one of the other owners, Royce Sterling, have a shot with a client.  But having Parker’s point of view that doesn’t actually get shown.  And it’s his relationship that you firs see develop in the previous volume, continues here.  That includes all the ups and downs.

I loved getting to see more of Parker’s employee Wendy.  Even knowing what Parker’s business is all about, I was glad to see that Wendy is more than fluff – she’s one smart cookie.  Was glad that I had a chance to see her work her mojo and that her boss really appreciates her talent.  With the Montreal book, I was not happy with the turn of events in Parker’s life – and the jury’s still out in how I feel about him period.  The tipping point may have been the way he feels about Wendy – which becomes very evident as we get to the end of this third book (or the sixth book in the series).  The author pleases me when I finally get a little peek into Skyler’s point of view.

Even though I don’t get to see the point of view of some of the other characters, I get enough that leaves me wanting to know where this series is going to take me next.  It’s like a soap opera.  You get hooked on the characters and the mystery and suspense that surround them.  The only thing these stories don’t have is the music that usually plays at that moment.  I’m looking forward to seeing what happens in London.
