International Guy: Madrid, Rio, Los Angeles (International Guy Volume Book 4)

International Guy: Madrid, Rio, Los Angeles (International Guy Volume Book 4) by Audrey Carlan is unique, show-stopping, magnificent, wicked, explosive, panty-melting, and just…everything.

Synopsis:

This volume includes the tenth, eleventh, and twelfth International Guy novellas from #1 New York Times bestselling author Audrey Carlan.

It’s always been about love, money, and dreams. Love of the work. Make as much money as possible. Help make dreams come true. Now I know none of that matters if you don’t have the right people in your life. My team, but more important, the love of a good woman. My future lies in her hands, and I’ve never been happier.

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…

Tracey’s Review:

Audrey Carlan broke me in Madrid with this explosive installment by throwing me for more than one loop I did not see coming. A tidal wave came and blew my mind and crushed my heart. Ms. Carlan knows how to twist you up inside like nobody’s business and this installment is the start of psycho town where you will say, “what just happened?” You might cuss in your head or yell out loud or freak out. Oh wait that was me. On a lighter note, Skyler comes with Parker to help with a case and it couldn’t be more beautiful.  Chasing your dreams and never giving up in order to achieve them plays out so exciting in Madrid. Parker and Sky make even more plans for forever and I am giddy about it. Bo made me bust a gut in this installment as someone gave him a run for his money and his commentary was infectious.

Then she blew me away in Rio. You will get your fill of action, suspense, drama, heartache, pain and love. The twists and turns were crazy town and so many questions got answered. My emotions were so raw and I was holding my breath and screaming out loud! I’m not gonna lie I may even have hoped that AC kill a certain character but you will have to read for yourself and find out who and if she did. The love that this tight knit group of people have for each other is out of this world. Audrey, this installment is an exceptional bombshell of epic proportions and couldn’t have been told better by anyone else.

This phenomenal series came to a close with all the feels in LA and had my heart bursting with joy. I couldn’t have asked for a better or more lovely ending. I adored these characters so much and am sad to see the series end. They truly were family in every sense of the word and I felt like I knew them in real life. I could be best friends with Sky, Wendy and Rachel. Everyone knows I have a huge crush on my smoking hot book boyfriend, Bo. But let’s be real, Parker and Royce are easy to love and hard to forget. I will miss their crazy adventures. Thank you for this enchanting finale my heart and soul needed to feel complete. It was so beautiful beyond words!

The mantras throughout the cities were fantastic and spot on and AC did not let me down with her final mirror moment. I was so giddy and grinning from ear to ear. In every story Ms. Carlan writes I find something I learn and it reminds me of my worth. I appreciate that more than she will ever know.  IG fills your mind, heart and soul with hope, admiration, desire, love and faith. Don’t forget to Live Your Truth, Own Your Future, Embrace Your Sexy, Trust Your Heart, Feed Your Soul, Brave the Ride and Never Stop Dreaming and you will be happier than you can imagine in this crazy world. You are golden Ms. Carlan. Thank you, Audrey, for this unique, show stopping, magnificent, and panty melting series that will nestle deep in my heart for years to come. ❤️

Ceej’s Review:

Madrid continues the wicked emotional rollercoaster that Audrey Carlan is an expert on.  This book takes us from that initial grin to irritation to wowza to outrage to so many others, including shock, panic, and tears!  First off, I do not like Tracey.  Earlier in the series, she irritated me.  Now, I’d like to put her in a headlock and twist.  HARD.   I mean, who does what she did???  I’m…just…aaarrrghhh!!!  I just can’t.

Moving on before I spoil it more…Juliet…what a sweetheart!  I just want to hug her and lift her spirits and join the team in uncovering the beautiful light she keeps hidden.  I loved the SkyPark day in Madrid!  And holy hotness, Audrey!  That dinner!  Whew!  Then the end of the book…I can’t and don’t want to spoil it, but…what a way to make my heart race, make me cuss at you through my Kindle, and make tears fill my eyes.  Why do you make me love your characters?!?!?!?! 

Rio… What an amazing roller coaster!!  This installment is unlike the others in so many ways.  Park and Roy are not working a contracted case, Park and Sky are not just visiting another country.  I am so in love with this family of characters that my heart beats so fast when they’re in danger, it stops when something bad happens, it bleeds when they’re hurting!  And this stalker/bomber/arsonist…I admit to wanting the tides turned on them.  But Audrey is too nice. LOL.  I would LOVE 5 minutes in a windowless, soundproof room with that person.  Seriously.  After all that person did to Sky and Park and family?!  Grrrr!!!!!

Los Angeles is everything a finale can ever dream to be!  I fell so deeply in love with this family of characters that I felt everything they did from hope to despair, pain to relief, glee to terror, and hatred to love.  This last installment is just…everything.  Audrey, thank you for this installment.  Thank you for reminding me that happiness is a choice.  And yes, I choose to be happy.  Thank you for such a beautiful book!

I’m sad to see this serial end, but I can’t wait to see what happens with where Audrey takes Bo, Roy, and Wendy and Mick!
