The Courtyard Corpse
The Courtyard Corpse: A Cassie Hall Concierge Mystery - Sherry Lodge

See this and all of my reviews at Mystereity Reviews

Cassie Hall, a concierge at the exclusive Parkstone luxury apartment building in Bethesda, MD, is thrilled when golf superstar Kip Ace and his wife, Bunny move into the building. Not long after, Cassie finds Kip in the Parkstone's Crabapple Courtyard - dead! With The Parkstone in a 24 hour lockdown while police investigate, restless residents and her job on the line, Cassie sets out to find a killer

I really enjoyed this charming cozy, it was a great weekend read. With a fast-paced plot full of misdirections that had me glued to the book, it was one of those great stories where you change your idea of whodunit with each chapter. With likable characters and a comfortable atmosphere, it was easy to get locked into The Parkstone with all the other residents. I got a real kick out of Mrs. Canterbury, and Cassie is an engaging main character, determined, stubborn and resourceful. I liked that the characters had enough of an introduction to give you a good idea of who they are, but leaving a few questions to be (hopefully) answered in later books.

Overall, The Courtyard Corpse is a great start to a new series, and definitely one I'll keep on my watch list. Cozy mystery fans will find a great new world to enjoy at The Parkstone, and a perfect weekend read.

Secrets can be hot
Her Secret Lover (What Happens in Vegas) - Robin Covington

This is book # 11 of What Happens in Vegas series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  It can also be read as part of the series.  The choice by the reader does not impact reading the story and either way makes a fun read.

 

Kelsey met Micah when he stays for the week at the hotel she works at.  She is assigned to be his personal concierge.  She is also his fan, but witholds this information as she wants to make him comfortable and handle the situation like a professional.

 

Micah is immediately attracted to Kelsey.  He looks for signs the feeling is mutual.  They start sparks flying all over the place.  Kelsey is trying maintain professionalism, since her job is on the line if she crosses the line.

 

This book has many surprises in store for the reader.  That is part of what makes reading it so much fun.  I loved how the characters came together.  The heat and the romance are also what make the book so good.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP.

Love, Your Concierge
Love, Your Concierge - Jessica Ingro This was an absolutely perfect read during my flight from London. One hot as hell man in Grant Morgan and his perfect mate in stubborn Elizabeth Ward. Both characters could irritate you with their stubbornness, but it was the perfect way to spend a few hours on a plane.

Jessica Ingro: Love, Your Concierge
Love, Your Concierge - Jessica Ingro, Kathy Krick (Editor)

A Love, Your Concierge egy olyan nőről szól, aki munkáját tekintve amolyan mindenes. Ügyfelei New York jómódú rétegből kerülnek ki, gazdagok és híresek. Legyen szó akár virágvásárlásról, ékszerekről a szerető(k)nek, vagy mosodába elvinni adott személy ruháit, esetleg egy gyerek születésnapi partijának megszervezéséről, Elizabeth Ward mindent megold. A háttéren dolgozik, ritkán találkozik ügyfeleivel. Amikor azonban személyesen is összehozza a sors a sikeres manhattani ügyvéddel, érzi, hogy minden kockára kell tennie. Grant Morgan magának akarja Elizabeth-et, és a férfi nem ismer a nemet. Igen ám, de megéri mindent elveszíteni, amiért éveken át olyan sokat dolgozott? Miután viszonyba bonyolódnak a lány tudja, hogy a szabálykönyvének búcsút inthet.

“I carry your heart. I carry it in my heart.”

Ez is egy olyan történet, amit szerettem is, meg nem is. Egyrészt szórakoztató volt, és a váltott szemszög is dobott az egészen, de csak azoknak ajánlom, akik bírják ha érzelmileg szenvednek a szereplők és kedvelik az nagyon-nagyon-nagyon erotikus műveket, leginkább a következő írókat: Christina Lauren, Sylvia Day, Katie Ashley stb...

Számomra ez a se veled, se nélküled a szereplők közt kissé idegesítő volt, és a sok félreértés miatt nem is csodálkoztam, hogy végül mennyire elcseszték a kapcsolatukat. Viszont Grant tényleg amolyan GQ pasi ♥ még ha egy igazi seggfej is. A második rész a két mellékkarakter Maya és Travis története lesz, ez ugyanúgy ott várakozik már a várólistámon, mivel Jessica Ingro jól ír, azt nem is vitatom :) csak nekem már sok volt benne a szex és a bonyodalom. Imádom a borítót, pláne azt a kis üzenetes papírt a masnival, ami Elizabeth névjegye is egyben.

Love, Your Concierge - Jessica Ingro Love, Your Concierge - Jessica Ingro Shayna Renee's Spicy Reads Top Pick of 2014

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!
