Blog Tour Review and Deleted scene: Love Your Concierge by Jessica Ingro

LYC Blog Banner  
Title: Love, Your Concierge
Author: Jessica Ingro
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 25, 2014

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?  

4.5 Star Review by Jen Hagen

Elizabeth is a personal concierge for high-end clients.  What exactly does that job entail?  She shops, packs suitcases for family vacations, puts together ritzy parties, folds their underwear, and also sends flowers to women after their one night with Grant Morgan essentially thanking them but yet dismissing them at the same time. 

Elizabeth began her personal concierge business while still in college as a means to cover her expenses since her family suddenly found themselves in a financial bind.  Upon graduating, Elizabeth continued with her business and is now working full-time and doing well for herself.  However, she cannot afford to lose any clients so she has instituted a no sex with clients rule to avoid the potential backlash.   Elizabeth has sex on the side with her friend, Matt.  Elizabeth likes their relationship because there are no feelings involved, but all that changes when Matt professes that he loves her (and my heart broke for him).

“No.  No, no, no.  This couldn’t be happening.  We were friends.  He wasn’t supposed to say things like that. 

Enter Mr. Grant Morgan.  He is gorgeous, successful and a well-noted playboy.  He doesn’t do relationships and does not want his heart to become damaged again…once of that was enough for him.  He sets his eyes on Elizabeth and wants her, even though she works for him and it is against her policy. Grant is used to getting his way and he is persistent in his pursuit.

“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.”

There is more to Grant than to what everybody sees.  He is more than just sex, money and power.  He has a soft side and wants to be a good man.  He doesn’t want his money and fame to declare who is he and he definitely doesn’t want women to use him for this.  Grant likes control, and he definitely takes control in the bedroom (**fans self**).  Grant has experience in this department and it definitely shows. 

Grant and Elizabeth are a great fit together.  Grant is very patient and doting with Elizabeth.  Sometimes I really wanted to give Elizabeth a swift kick in the butt because she could be so stubborn and unwilling to let Grant show the depth of his feelings for her.

“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…”

Life is going too well for these two…I started looking at my progress in the book thinking “there’s plenty of time for something to go wrong” and yes, things definitely took a turn.  A conniving wanna-be lover and misconceptions threaten to put an end to their relationship.

“I think it’s best you leave before I say what I’m really thinking.  Leave with some dignity, Elizabeth.”

Grant throws out very hurtful words to Elizabeth.  It would be difficult to ever forgive him for saying these out loud to her, but in his moment of passion and hurt I understood where he was coming from.  He never thought anybody could deceive him again and his anger took hold and he let loose. 

Following this heated verbal exchange there’s a 25% remaining in the book and hold on tight because the angst is never ending.  If you were upset at Grant for his harsh words, you will forget every single one he spoke when you see how sweet and tender he becomes.  He will win your heart over and you will want a Grant in your life. 

“This is where we started, Elizabeth.  You, me, and the stars.  I lost my heart to you that night and I’m standing here now to tell you that you can keep it.  I want you to have my heart forever.

I have read all of Jessica’s prior writings and enjoyed them.  In fact Love Square and His Ever After were on my best of 2013 list.  She has the ability to quickly draw in the reader and keep us captivated with her fast-paced stories but yet not leaving out any details, and I can’t forget to mention how HOT her sex scenes are.  I look forward to Jessica’s future writings.                 

Love, Your Concierge Deleted Scene
Dance with Me

“Dance with me.”
I looked at Grant when I heard his words. When we came to the White Rabbit tonight, I never thought he’d want to dance with me. Sure we had danced a few times together before but that was to slow music. Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” was anything but slow.
“You’re serious?” I asked with some skepticism.
“I wouldn’t have asked if I wasn’t. Come. Let me show you all the moves in my arsenal.” He gave me saucy grin and winked, knowing full well I wouldn’t be able to leave that one alone.
“I’ve seen your moves already,” I said with disinterest in my voice. I always enjoyed our back and forth.
“You haven’t seen anything, love. I bet I could make you come on the dance floor without anyone even realizing what was happening.”
My heart skipped a beat at that promise. And I knew it was a promise. Grant didn’t tout his abilities if he couldn’t back them up. Of that I was sure.
“Challenge accepted.” I reached my hand out and he took it in his before leading me out on the dance floor.
Grant pulled me flush against him so that we were chest to chest. His hand ran down the exposed skin of my back and into my dress, cupping my ass which was mostly bared thanks to my thong.
His hips began to circle and gyrate to the beat of the music and oh God did that feel good. Every few seconds the bulge in his pants would rub at just the right spot that got my juices flowing and my blood pumping.
I might act like I didn’t want Grant to best this challenge, but I secretly really did. Ever since we got together I began to crave him and the orgasms he could give me. You would too if you were in my shoes.
“That’s it love,” Grant praised me when I grabbed his ass and pushed his hips tighter into mine. I needed the friction.
We moved in time together. Our bodies hot and writhing against each other even though we were both fully clothed. My core clenched with need and I could feel sweat trickling down my body as one song morphed into the next.
Grant grabbed the string of my thong and yanked it rhythmically so that it rubbed against my clit. My eyes widened and within seconds I felt the ball of tension spreading in my belly. When it finally snapped I knew it was going to feel spectacular.
“Is your pussy wet, Elizabeth?” Grant whispered in my ear seductively. “Does it wish it had my cock driving into it? Fast and hard?”
He grabbed my hand and showed me just how hard he was. And I wanted him inside me desperately.
“When I watched you dance that first night, all I could imagine was being with you just like we are now. It should have been my hands on you. My mouth on you. And my body that you used to get off. Not that fucker’s.”
It took a moment for the haze of my Grant fog to lift enough for me to realize he was talking about the night Matt and I danced in front of him.
“It’s only you, Grant. Only you I want touching me, tasting me and making love to me,” I reassured him. One arm wrapped around his shoulder while the other pulled him neck down so that I could kiss him. Once our mouths met, his head slanted and our tongues tangled with each other.
On a delicious tug of my thong in conjunction with a hard grind of Grant’s groin against mine, my mouth broke from his and a low moan sounded in my throat.
“Let go, Elizabeth. Show me how beautiful you are when you come.”
Ever the dutiful girlfriend, I did as I was told. My fingers dug into his shoulders when it crashed over me. When I finally opened my eyes, Grant wore a smug expression. Yes, my man definitely had abilities that deserved every bit of the gloating he did.
