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

Back with our darlings from International Guy for one last time.

We're still dealing with the anonymous note-sender. Those little notes and texts are starting to sound really dangerous and threatening. Wendy is trying her best to find out who's behind it before someone gets hurt or worse.

Our first story takes us to Madrid to help a young girl find her inner and outer popstar. She's shy and her record company thinks she has to lose weight and have plastic surgery, but Parker, Bo and Sky know that they can make a star out of Juliet without changing her too much!

Book 2 is taking us to Rio. Parker's soon-to-be brother-in-law is having some embezzlement problems at his family's company and some private family problems too. Plus Skyler and Parker need some time away from Boston after everything that happend in the first story. ☺

Book 3 ... Los Angeles... we're going there to be in the jury of a dating show...but it ends up being a lot more! LOL!

But the main part during all three stories is the love story between Skyler and Parker and the crazy 'stalker' person!

What will happen to Parker & Skyler & the rest of International Guy in these last 3 stories??

Well, just like the other stories ... these 3 were really exciting and adorable and funny.
I'm sad to have to say good-bye now. I wouldn't mind staying with all these guys forever. A little story every few months would be amazing - to see what's happening in all their lives. ☺
(... and we kinda will, because Audrey is writing stories about Bo, Royce and Wendy!!!!)

You have to get used to the guys and the writing and the happenings in the books. But once you get to know them all - it's a really great world to read about!

I adored the stories.

The stalker thing is really exciting and dangerous and unfortunately a bit too obvious. No, not a bit, it's way too obvious. No idea if Audrey did that on purpose or if she just doesn't know how to build mysterious suspense in a story. It was a bit ridiculous. I wanted to throw my kindle out the next window a few times. And then Parker and the guys STILL don't get who is behind it after everything ... jeer deesus. I just couldn't believe it. BUT - it was still exciting and dangerous and adorable and funny. Just a bit not too well done with the mystery part.

I'm still not in love with all of Audrey's writing style. All characters talk way too weird for my tastes. All these HOW'S ABOUT WE (please someone tell me what that is all about? WHYYYY???) ... And I still don't like how Sky calls Parker Honey - it sounds so unmanly! And calling a partner MATE instead of lover, boyfriend, financé? We're not in a shapeshifter book. And, ugh - instead of just saying Thank you or Thanks when someone does something for you - they say My Gratitude brother! Jeez. Like in a bad black mafia/frat boy movie!
And I hated the religious feeling throughout the stories - especially in the Rio book. Praying and shit - not in my romances please! If I wanted to read christian romances, I would do that - which I'm never ever gonna do. Ew.

BUT I really enjoyed these 3 stories! All 12 stories really. I liked hearing a bit about every city.
All characters are just adorable and hilarious!
Let's hope we'll get that happy end for SkyPark by the end of the 12th story! ☺

INTERNATINAL GUY, VOL IV was the perfect finale in this great series. Sexy, funny, exciting & intersting & suspensy & adorable. ☺ Run to your nearest amazon for your own Parker, Bo & Royce & Mack & Paul & Dennis ... - they will be sold out in no time!!! Great cast! Wouldn't mind seeing this on Netflix one day!
