Title: Love, Your Concierge
Author: Jessica Ingro
Release Date: February 24, 2014
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Organization – that’s what I do. Control – it’s my middle name.
Hello. I’m Elizabeth – your personal concierge. My job is to play fairy godmother to the rich and famous.
The universal rulebook may say to never mix business with pleasure, but its author never worked for Grant Morgan, my sexy and brooding client. As a top attorney in Manhattan, Grant is used to calling the shots and dominating everything he touches. He also changes girlfriends as often as I pick up his dry cleaning. A part of me still wishes I could let him command my body and take me in ways I’ve never imagined, though.
One moment of weakness is all it takes to change everything forever.
Addicted – I can’t get enough of him. Consumed – He’s all I think and dream about.
The book has officially been thrown out the window. I’m in love and completely terrified. With lines blurred, I find myself lying, cheating and stealing to protect myself from being hurt. But my choices affect more than just me and now I’m not so sure what I’m trying to protect myself from.
Will love be enough to erase all I’ve done? Or have I made the biggest mistake of all?
“Invite me in, Elizabeth. I won’t leave here until I’ve had you beneath me, writhing and moaning and calling my name… Invite me in.”
This is a new contemporary romance from Jessica Ingro. It’s the first part of her new Concierge series and there is no cliffhanger and this is a standalone romance. The subsequent books in the series will focus on different couples.
Well, the blurb pretty much says it all – Elizabeth works as a concierge in New York, pandering to very rich clients, the most recent of which is Grant Morgan, hot shot lawyer and renowned player. Elizabeth has a strict rule about not mixing business with pleasure but Grant has his sights set firmly on her and begins to pursue her in earnest.
This was very much a heartfelt romance. Elizabeth is a sweet-natured, hard-working concierge who doesn’t think she has much time for a relationship and certainly isn’t about to combine business with pleasure however appealing Grant Morgan is but Grant is trying very hard to wear down her defences and it’s not long before she succumbs.
You have no idea how much I care for you, do you? I need you, Elizabeth. You’re a breath of fresh air in this closed off world I live in filled with vultures looking to strike at any sign of weakness.
They start a beautiful romance – Grant is actually nothing like the playboy he is portrayed as by the tabloid press. He’s very intense, very sexy and he falls hard and fast for Elizabeth. She for her part, falls for him in a big way but is slow to trust him and then, when everything seems to be going so well, they fall foul of the most nefarious of plot devices – THE BIG MISUNDERSTANDING! At this point, I pretty much fell out of love with Mr Morgan – he suddenly became very judgmental and behaved appallingly leaving our poor heroine distraught and bereft,
So while I enjoyed this romance and there is plenty of sex, romance and humour, my attention did start to wander a little right up until that Big Misunderstanding which tears them asunder for months. At this point, with a couple of other plot twists under our belts, the story line really starts to pick up momentum and I found myself turning the pages rapidly in the last quarter of the book just waiting for Grant to eat humble pie after being a complete fuckwit.
It’s an enjoyable contemporary romance with some great secondary characters for future books, the story flowed well and the pacing was great. I did have a little trouble fully connecting with both Elizabeth and Grant which is why this is a 3.5 and not a 4 star read for me but, in the end, I found myself glued to the pages desperate to see how it would all end,
