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?
Move over Christian Grey….ladies meet your next ultimate Book Boyfriend….Grant Morgan!
Love, Your Concierge by Jessica Ingro was SO FREAKIN’ GOOD! This was my first read from Ms. Ingro and I couldn’t be happier to add another Contemporary Romance favorite to my MUST READ list. This story had me captivated the whole way through. I couldn’t put it down, not even for a second. A book that can take me away from the boredom of everyday life, hold me captive for hours straight, and takes my breath away over and over again, deserves the highest rating possible. There is nothing I can criticize about this story. I loved the characters. They made me laugh, made me blush, and at times, made me want to slap them senseless. The storyline held my attention and kept me on the edge of my seat. Love, Your Concierge was a beautiful, funny, emotional love story that will warm your heart. There is nothing I like better than a great romance with a SEXY, alpha male for its hero, and a strong, independent woman that keeps him on his toes.
❝He was utterly fuckable. There was no other way to describe him. Unless you were within a ten foot radius of the man himself, you would never truly know what that statement meant. It had to have been created just to describe him.❞
And that my friends, describes Grant Morgan perfectly! Gorgeous, rich, demanding, possessive. Come on! Us readers didn’t stand a chance with this guy! Everything you want in a hero, Mr. Morgan has it….TIMES TEN! Even though he is SEXINESS personified, he, as I mentioned before, is one of the characters that I wanted to slap a couple of times. How can someone so beautiful be so freakin’ infuriating?! Oh well, I guess you could say he is a man, and you should expect that, but I can say that he does make up for it, AGAIN and AGAIN!
❝If I want to kiss you, I damn well will. If I want to fuck you, I’ll do that too. And if you even think about telling me it’s a mistake again, I’ll gag you.❞
Elizabeth is our leading lady, and she is just hysterical. In my opinion, she has the best job for her personality. The things that girl must see on a daily basis, just wow! Elizabeth has avoided relationships for as long as she can remember. She tells herself that it’s because she is so busy and never finds the time for that, but deep down she is like the rest of us, afraid of having a broken heart. To stay on the safe side, she has a friend with benefits, and we all know how those end. Sometimes we just need that dominating presence to break down the walls around our hearts. Sometimes…….we just need a little bit of Mr. Morgan.
❝Tell me you’re mine, Elizabeth. That no other man will ever be able to touch you. To taste you. To love you.❞
As you can tell by the quotes I’m picking to add to the review, the sexual tension, the chemistry, the angst was out of control! All throughout the book, I kept my eyes glued to the words, reading them over and over again, just grinning, gasping, and craving more. Jessica Ingro can write a damn love scene that’s for sure. Your erotic side will be satisfied believe you me.
Not only is Ms. Ingro descriptive with her sex scenes (which I appreciate SO MUCH), she is descriptive in everything she writes, down to the outfits of the characters and the layout of a room. All of a sudden you are transported to place that she is describing and you can picture it perfectly in your head. That takes skill, and it’s just another element that made this story so much more for the reader.
Not only is Love, Your Concierge a must read, but it is a TOP PICK of 2014! You will not want to miss out on this love story. Powerful, intense, and steamy, this book will take you for a ride and you will never want to get off. I look forward, no that’s not right, I CAN’T FREAKIN’ WAIT for another read from Jessica Ingro. You are now on my radar woman!

I am SO EXCITED to have Elizabeth and Grant here today to answer some questions about life, love, and what the future holds for the happy couple!
Elizabeth, Mr. Morgan, thank you SO MUCH for meeting with me today! Let’s get right to it shall we?
Elizabeth, what is a day in the life of a personal concierge like?
Elizabeth: I can honestly say that a day in the life of a personal concierge is never boring and each day is completely different from the one before. I have amazing clients so my job is both fun and entertaining. Typically, you’ll find me shuffling as quickly and efficiently as possible from one place to the next.
Grant: She’s like Speedy Gonzalez. Only far more easy on the eyes. (Pulls Elizabeth tighter to his side and smiles a wide, knowing smile at her, causing Elizabeth to blush.)
Without naming names, can you dish out any funny stories related to any of your clients?
Elizabeth: Funny stories, huh? Well, there were a few mentioned in the book, but let me think for a second. Oh I know! One of my first assignments for a new client was to get her suitcase repaired for her. The woman at the repair shop asked me if everything was out of it. I had assumed my client went through it, but figured I would double check anyway. Let me tell you, never assume. When I stuck my hand in the front pocket, I pulled out a zebra printed vibrator and some batteries. So that I didn’t lose them, I put the batteries in the vibrator and then went to throw it in my purse. Well that fucker turned on full throttle! The store clerk and I were dying of laughter while I frantically tried to get the batteries out. She kindly offered a bag for me to carry it in. And even though I was embarrassed when it happened, I think my client was thoroughly humiliated when she got home and found the bag on her dining room table with a note from me.
Oh my God! That is hilarious! I can only imagine what you put on that note! I would have died of embarrassment. I’m glad you two had a good laugh about it though.
How is your relationship with your ex-FWB (friends with benefits) Matt?
(Casts a sideways glance at Grant) Elizabeth: We’re still trying to figure out where our friendship goes from here. I care deeply about Matt as a friend and want him to always be in my life.
Grant: I want him to move on and find someone else to fuck, so he’ll stop thinking about fucking my wife.
Oookay! Let’s change the subject…..
Before meeting Mr. Morgan, why did you avoid relationships?
Elizabeth: I never really had the time for them. Relationships tend to be messy and complicated, and I just wanted to focus on my career and becoming successful. Besides, I had yet to meet the person who would turn me inside out and flip my world upside down. Grant did that. He feels about me the way my father did about my mother. It’s what I was always holding out for.
Well, it was probably worth the wait for you.
What went through your mind when you first set your sights on Grant?
Elizabeth: Wait a minute. I didn’t set my sights on him. He set his on me.
Grant: Whatever you need to tell yourself, beautiful.
Elizabeth: I’m serious! You drove me nuts! What with your fake errands and all.
Grant: You loved it. Besides, you got to drive my car. No one else has ever had that luxury.
Elizabeth: Oh yeah. She was one sexy kitten when she purred for me.
Grant: Sexier than me?
Grant: Don’t make me punish you later.
Elizabeth: We have company, Grant. We’ll talk about it later. (Turns towards you.) Sorry about that. Ignore us.
Oh no worries. I will just mind my business, and not ask what this ‘punishment’ might be.
Did you appreciate the fact that he was so forward in his advances of you?
Elizabeth: At the risk of his head swelling any further, I can’t deny I didn’t enjoy some of his attentions. And it was very rewarding once he finally caught me.
Grant: Elizabeth dear, my head is swollen and ready for you 24/7. No need to concern yourself with that. As a matter of fact, if you want to end this interview now I’d be more than happy to show you just how rewarding I can make it for you.
(Elizabeth swallows hard and turns to me with a shrug.) Elizabeth: You might want to hurry up with your questions.
(Grant winks at you.)
Reel it in you two. (giggling) We are almost done.
Mr. Morgan, sorry, I just feel like I have to be formal with you, what was it about Elizabeth that made you feel so drawn to her?
Grant: She’s beautiful, charming and sexy as fuck. She has a light about her that just makes you want to know her. And once you do, it’s her kind and gentle heart that makes you want her to be around forever. It didn’t hurt either that she is by far the best lover I’ve ever had.
(Elizabeth slaps his arm, while smiling at him like he hangs the sun and the moon)
Elizabeth: Stop talking about our sex life. It makes me want to leave poor Shayna before she’s done with her questions.
Grant: Sorry, love. (He grins unrepentantly.)
(Shayna’s cheeks turn a tinge of pink, as she clears her throat)
Mr. Morgan, as you know your family was not all quick to approve of your relationship with Elizabeth, have they come around at all?
Grant: They don’t approve of anything but sucking the souls out of anyone they cross. I haven’t spoken to my family since that night we had dinner with them, other than to tell them they will never meet Genevieve. It was by far one of the best decisions I had ever made concerning them. I can’t say I miss them in the least.
This is for both of you; do you believe in love at first sight?
Elizabeth: Absolutely. (Looks over at Grant.)
Grant: Without a doubt. (Kisses the tip of Elizabeth’s nose.)
Aw, you two are too cute.
Ok guys, I have some quick fire questions for ya! Here we go….
Flowers or chocolates? (Careful Mr. Morgan) ☺
Grant: Chocolate. Flowers are a thing of my past.
Mr. Morgan everyone is dying to know – boxers or briefs?
If I’m not commando, I wear boxer briefs.
(Shayna’s cheeks turn a brighter pink as she has to clear her throat yet again)
Morning or night person?
Nicknames for each other?
Rope or Handcuffs?
(They both glance at each and share a heated, knowing look. Elizabeth bites her lip before looking away.)
Gentle or rough?
Elizabeth: Oh this is hard. Sometimes you need it sweet, but other times you just want to be thoroughly fucked.
Grant: Both. You have to be open to whatever your and your lover’s mood dictates.
Dirty Talk, yay or nay?
Elizabeth: Oh yes.
Grant: I just say whatever I’m thinking. More often than not, it’s dirty.
I can only imagine Mr. Morgan (OMG, did I just say that out loud?)
Now wasn’t that fun?! I have one more question for you both; can you tell us what exciting things the future holds for you two?
Grant: Lots and lots of babies. Genevieve is the most gorgeous, smart, talented and observant child you’ll ever meet. I have no doubt all our kids are going to be that perfect.
Elizabeth: Um, I guess what he said. Although I’m thinking only one or two more.
Grant: Elizabeth. You were absolutely beautiful pregnant. Plan on me keeping you that way as often as I can.
Elizabeth: Let’s just take it one child at a time.
Grant: I suppose I can give you that. Now can we please get out of here and enjoy the rest of the time Genevieve is with Jennie? (Voice dips low.) I need to be inside you, love.
Elizabeth: It was really great of you for having us Shayna, but we have somewhere else to be. See you soon! (Grant pulls her from the couch and drags her from the room.)
Thank you so…..(Watches them rush out of the room like the building is on fire)…much. (Shakes head while a uncontrollable grin forms on my face, and whispers to myself) I bet those two won’t even make it home before Mr. Morgan dishes out his punishment.
