International Guy: San Francisco by Audrey Carlan proves she gets better and better and pulls me in every time like I am right there in the room with all of them!

Synopsis:

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

San Francisco, California. Steam is rising fast in the City by the Bay.

I’ve been hired to find a love match for a stunning, powerful, and lonely CEO. She’s through with being mined by gold diggers who only want her money and her body. She’s looking for love.

Imagine my surprise when my business partner Royce offers himself up on a silver platter, a move that could ruin everything we’ve built—our friendship, International Guy’s reputation—and even Royce’s heart.

The thing is…he’s all wrong for her, and I know it. Royce wants to settle down, but this client is most certainly not that kind of woman.

I decide to let things play out. A man has to learn his own truths—just because you want something doesn’t mean you can have it.

Tracey’s Review:

Audrey Carlan is pulling out all the stops up in Cali when Royce meets Rochelle. Each installment gets better and better and AC pulls me in every time like I am right there in the room with all of them. It is exciting to see Royce more up close and personal. He has such a sexy swagger and I love his deep voice that I swear I can hear out loud and not just in my head.

Chelle is a hard core all business woman that sometimes hooks up for pleasure. While you go thru her adventure to find her mate, you will get so much more than that. I loved getting to explore Parker and his brother Royce's relationship and the fierce protectiveness that Parker conveys. I adore the relationship these brothers have with each other even though they made me crazy sometimes. You can feel the love these siblings have for each other flow through the pages and grab your heart and not let go.

There is drama, thievery, heartbreak, blackmail, love, and lust lost. I laughed, I cringed, I got giddy with excitement, I wanted to knock some heads together and I may have wanted to throw my kindle a time or two. Just when you think you've seen it all, Audrey pulls out a whopper of a twist. Hold onto your hats you are in for a delicious, angst filled ride..❤

International Guy: San Francisco by Audrey Carlan is a shocking and amazing installment!!

Ceej’s Review:

I love all Audrey Carlan’s work and this is no exception.  IG San Francisco is a shocking and amazing installment that had me wincing and chuckling, grinning and face-palming, squealing in delight and wanting to throw my kindle into the wall (for two separate reasons).  Audrey never fails to take me on that damn emotional rollercoaster!

Let me make one thing clear.  Royce.  Is.  Mine.  A certain trick needs to step off.  Well, that last part is no longer a worry, but holy hell, I was so mad I threw my Kindle.

I admit that I actually enjoyed watching Park battle being stuck between what he feels and knows is right and trying to let his brother “learn his own truths”.  I enjoyed it simply because I wasn’t in his place.  Park deserves serious props for the immense love and protectiveness he has for his brother.  Honestly, I kept waiting for one of them to completely lose their mind.  And in true Audrey fashion, she showed what real, grown brothers do.  Gah I loved it!

Audrey Carlan never fails to provide incredible scenarios and characters who are full of life and many different angles.  And what she gives them at the end of each installment?  *sigh*  Now onto the next one, please!

International Guy: Milan (International Guy Series Book 4) by Audrey Carlan wicked HOT (as can always be expected from Audrey Carlan), moving, inspiring, touching, and completely epic!

Synopsis:

The fourth book in the steamy International Guy Series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Audrey Carlan.

Milan, Italy. Where fashion rules, these twelve models are getting schooled in the sweet arts of sensuality and seduction.

With intimate pictures of me and starlet Skyler Paige igniting a tabloid sexstorm, the gig in Milan is perfectly timed. I need a distraction. And what a distraction: a dozen gorgeous Italian lingerie models—every one of them a mouthwatering temptation…

The problem? These aren’t professionals. They’re real women—soft, lush, and inexperienced. They need International Guy to show them how to embrace their sexy on the runway.

With my personal life challenges and just a week to empower each one, I’m not on my game. All I can think about is Skyler. Her voice. Her body. Her taste. I swore I’d never settle down. With so many women in so many cities, can I really consider taking myself off the market for just one woman?

Ceej’s Review:

Milan is my favorite International Guy installment so far!  Not only does Parker and Sky make a big decision, but the message the guys teach their client is important to all women.  It’s not only wicked hot, but it’s very moving and encouraging.

Park and Sky made me so happy!  They make such a sizzlingly hot couple and the beauty of it is that it’s not just about sex.  There is so much more than that.  It’s so much fun witnessing their chemistry and the depth of their affection for each other.  And when their relationship is tested, my heart started pounding harder!  Gah I love them both so much!

The Dream Maker and Lovemaker tag-teaming the process of coaching normal women to embrace their sexy?  Utter perfection.  And Park’s first idea?  It was inspired.  And hilarious as it pertains to Bo’s reaction.  I loved that part!  Then Park’s idea for the catwalk/stage?  Maybe I’m a softie, but that really touched my heart and soul as a woman, especially a woman who has the same or similar esteem issue as some of the models.

I don’t believe I could love Milan any more than I already do!  It was wicked HOT as can always be expected from Audrey Carlan, moving, inspiring, touching, and completely epic!  I cannot wait to see what else we get to enjoy!  Audrey Carlan rocks serials like no one else!

Tracey’s Review:

Audrey Carlan brings beauty in all shapes and sizes to center stage in this book. I adore this installment so much. Every woman should feel beautiful in their own skin and love themselves for who they are and the guys provide support and motivation for them to realize this. Every woman should know their worth and Audrey shows this in such a passionate as well as sexy way.

I love Parker and Sky’s relationship so much. The support and compassion they have for one another is just as spectacular as the love and extremely hot sex that they share. They make me giddy and I didn’t even want Parker and Sky to be a couple when they first started out in this series. Thank God they have this mind blowing attraction to one another that starts to rock them so internally because they relationship is tested right from the start. You will root for them just like Audrey’s other amazing couples as you also may have a tizzy or two.

My man Bo makes me laugh and appreciate him even more in this installment and you need to read it to understand why! The men make my heart explode as Ms. Carlan tackles self esteem issues in such an inspiring and breathtaking way. I battle with body image and society’s expectations, as well as so many other women do so, I was really pulled deep into this story.

Audrey this book touched me in ways I’m not even sure I could explain enough to show its power and motivation. For that I thank you from the bottom of my heart. This story is captivating, encouraging, awe-inspiring and incredible and that is all because of the power behind your words, Audrey Carlan, and proves once again why you a #1 NYT best selling author!

International Guy: Copenhagen by Audrey Carlan proves why so many of us still believe in soulmates!

Synopsis:

International Guy Parker Ellis returns in the third sizzler from #1 New York Times bestselling author Audrey Carlan.

Copenhagen, Denmark. In the City of Spires, everything is spiraling out of control.

My latest project has trouble written all over her. And it’s my favorite kind: lush curves; full, kissable lips; and a wicked smile that promises a million sins. But Christina Kaarsberg is a whole new gamble. She’s a princess—as in the Danish royal family. And if I make one mistake, my International Guy business will be royally screwed.

There’s a lot more riding on this job than just a woman who needs help. Not only do I have to tame this soon-to-reign bad girl but I also have to convince her to marry the crown prince and accept her rightful place as the next queen of Denmark.

It turns out that our sexy little princess is playing a game. I just need to figure out which rules to follow…and which ones to break.

Tracey’s Review:

What is it like to be a princess? Well you find out in Copenhagen when you meet a princess.

Doesn't every girl want to meet her prince? Is royalty overrated? You will find out the answers to these questions and so much more. What if the fairytale isn't like what you grew up believing?? Your heart and who you actually love should out way obligation right? Maybe being a princess isn’t all it’s cracked up to be!

I can’t wait to keep reading this series and going city to city with these amazing friends! This is going to be a wicked hot summer with all this yummy goodness! I couldn’t stop turning the pages! I would give this 10 stars if I could. Audrey has really out done herself with this sizzling new series!

Ceej’s Review:

Copenhagen is a story that shows what a person will do for love, and what another would do because the right thing to do.  The question was, will love win over duty?

On this case, we have Parker going to Copenhagen, Denmark to wrangle a naughty princess.  While he appreciates her assets, he has other plans.  Park’s natural inclination to an open mind and curiosity helps him find out some interesting things about the bratty princess he was hired to “fix” and redirect.  But will those things help his focus?

Christina Kaarsberg isn’t what she seems.  Her life isn’t what the public thinks it is.  Her reasoning behind how she seems and appears is to be a noble but foolish thing.  There were times where my heart ached for her.  Then there were times I just wanted to shake her.  Then yet again, there were times I wanted to give her a big hug.

Unsurprisingly, this was another amazing installment!  Parker keeps proving that he fits his title!  And he proved that seducing the client wasn’t his MO!  I just loved how he works.  You can see that he doesn’t go in with a set plan or process.  He keeps his mind open and works hard to do what’s best for his client.  There was one moment where my eyes almost fell out of my head though.  Gah Audrey keeps killing it!

International Guy: New York by Audrey Carlan is a whirlwind of loves, fears, dreams, heartaches, wicked HOTness, joy, fun, and awe!

Synopsis:

The International Guy Series continues with the second rousing book from #1 New York Times bestselling author Audrey Carlan.

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.

Ceej’s Review:

New York is an installment packed with heat, emotion, joy, fun, awe, and even some sadness.

In this installment, we get to watch as the newest addition to the IG team tricks Parker then impresses him.  I FLOVE her!  She had me grinning so wide then outright chuckling at her cheekiness. 

Here, we find Parker in a very difficult situation.  He was hired by his dream girl’s agent to help her find her muse and herself.  Their first meeting would have had a lesser man on his knees and his tongue hanging out.  I have to give him serious props for holding out as long as he did, especially with what she does?  Whew!

I really felt for Skyler.  Her life is not an easy one and I can’t blame her for the way she was before Parker.  I just think she is absolutely adorable and someone I’d love to be good friends with.  She has this cute sense of humor and a ton of wicked talent.  I hope to see more of her!

So far, this is my favorite installment.  Not only was the heat and chemistry off-the-charts, but the pride, joy, and hilarity were awesome!  I can’t wait to see what happens next!

Tracey’s Review:

Parker has met his match with Skyler Freakin Page. The Hollywood A-list actress that is down for the count. Why is this "It girl" losing her love of the limelight? Where did it all go wrong? In a story that you may think would be unrelatable, it is anything but. Everyone has loves, fears, dreams and heartaches as they go through this crazy thing called life. This is a whirlwind of all that and so much more. You will find out Hollywood is a gamble of love and laughter, but do people really get a happily ever after? Audrey has out done herself as this series continues. It just gets even better and I can’t stop turning the pages!
