Book Review: Audrey Carlan's International Guy Vol 1

  • Publisher: Montlake Romance (July 10, 2018)
  • Publication Date: July 10, 2018

New York, New York. In the city that never sleeps, it’s still easy to dream…
I’m a professional. That doesn’t mean I can’t lose control. I’m only human. But I’d better watch myself with Skyler Paige. She’s the hottest movie star on the planet right now—the woman I’ve crushed on for years—and she’s on the edge of losing it. She needs to find her muse. Hell, she needs to find herself. But most of all, she needs International Guy’s help. That’s why she’s come to me, Parker Ellis.
Ever since Skyler opened her door, it’s been a freakin’ hurricane of charged lust between us. Damn. Those lips. That body. The need to have her once, twice, or a million times before our three weeks are up.
I just don’t want to go too far, too fast. Only she’s making it so hard.
Because the danger of mixing business with pleasure is that sometimes you feel a lot more than you should.
About the Series
Parker Ellis, CEO of International Guy Inc., advises the wealthiest people in the world on life and love. And sometimes he can’t help it when things heat up and he ends up in bed with his clients.
This International Guy knows that 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 is the second book in a twelve-novella series.

My Review:

I love Audrey Carlan.  No question her books have a habit of taking me to far away places that  sound beautiful and feel authentic in every way.  I was looking forward to meeting these three incredible men as they work with women who need special attention to help them move forward in their lives and careers.  

But as much as I love this series, and I do.  It feels too familiar to her Calendar Girl series.  And honestly, at least with the first three stories, I felt it was all about Parker and not much to do with his two friends.  I want them to be more fleshed out in future stories.  

The other issue I have is, Parker in general.  Everything he does is about manipulation to achieve the goal.  I just don't buy the true love he allegedly finds in NY.  Just my opinion though.  That being said, Audrey brings you in to Parker's world full on and it feels real.  That is her real gift.  I recommend the series, but there are no real suprises (at least not yet) that I see.

I give it 3 out of 5 lipsticks!
