From Audrey Carlan, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Calendar Girl series.

Life has never been sweeter. I’m head over heels in love with the woman of my dreams, Skyler Paige. We’ve worked out the kinks of our pasts, and all I want is to start building our future together. But duty calls and International Guy is on our way to London, Berlin, and Washington, DC. Our entire team is about to be tested in ways we never imagined—but I know for sure, no matter how bad things look, there’s no team I’d rather be on…

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 seventh, eighth, and ninth International Guy novellas.

My Thoughts:

This volume has the next three books staring Parker Ellis.  Now that the weather is turning colder and wetter now’s a good time to cuddle with a good book.    And you get to go places without leaving your chair but the one downside is that we don’t get to really do any sightseeing. 

These books continue to be told from the point of view of Parker Ellis.  But with this set each book starts from Skyler’s point of view and ends the same way.  Something that I pick up a lot with this set is that a mystery seems to be building momentum.  And so has my appreciation for this series.  It’s almost like the first six books were getting me ready for this latest volume.  One continued disappointment is that even though our characters get to go to all these places I don’t feel like I’m sightseeing.  May have to use these books as inspiration to take a round the world vacation to all the places that these books visit.

One thing I’ve learned from book seven, London, is that if you pick this series up here you’ve missed so much.  You need to stop and go back to the beginning.  Otherwise, you won’t understand who Parker is and how Skyler ended up being a part of his life.  He shocks me by saying a certain word.  I never would have thought that one word would have been a part of his vocabulary. 

Out of all the books I’ve read so far this is my favorite.  One thing it does is humanize our characters – can picture them working together and loving each other.  This is a book that lets Bo shine.  He seems to be our comic relief – you’ll be guaranteed a good laugh when he’s around.  Instead of a romantic ending we get a little mystery.

For the next book, Berlin, it was nice to see that Bo continued to make me laugh.  And of course those moments always seem to be at his expense.  Besides the laughter there are moments of seriousness.  Parker is really starting to grow on me too.  I don’t know that if Skyler hadn’t come into his life if I would have been saying that.   One nice thing was that we get to meet a member of Parker’s family.  Our author also sends me a reminder that a mystery is still afoot.

The last book in this set is titled after our nation’s capital.  My psst moment is to let you know that there’s an Author’s Note to start the story off and please make sure to read it – even though you may be tempted to skip ahead to the good stuff.  Especially after me telling you there’s something juicy the author has added here.

This is where the plot is starting to thicken so I’ve decided that I’m just going to park my butt firmly in my chair.  There’s no way that I can move until I see what this author has in store for us now.  I haven’t been able to sightsee at all the places Parker goes to visit with clients, he spends enough time in Boston that it fills my travel needs.  Even though I know more books are coming that didn’t stop me from getting frustrated when yet again this book ends with a mystery.
