ARC Review: Forever Your Concierge By: Jessica Ingro

From the moment she said hello, Travis Hamilton knew without a doubt that Maya Harris was the one. Knowing how hard it is to make a relationship work, he’s ready to fight for them—no matter what trials and tribulations come their way. But what do you do when the woman you're in love with refuses to move your relationship forward? When her secrets become too much to handle? How can you get her to trust you and take a chance on your future?

Maya Harris gave up on love a long time ago. Past experience dictated that what seemed too good to be true, most certainly always was. There’s something about Travis Hamilton though that pushes her to the brink of change—teetering on the edge of giving in to their love and planning on forever. But past mistakes always have a way of rearing their ugly head and putting your future at risk.

True loves and happily ever afters are anything but easy, and never a guarantee. Can love really overcome any obstacle? Can happiness truly come without any strings?

I’m going to start off by stating that in Love, Your Concierge I had serious issues with Maya and when I found out that Forever Your Concierge was going to be her story I will admit I was skeptical.  However, I haven’t been disappointed yet by anything Ms. Ingro has written so I went in hoping that I wouldn’t be disappointed this time either.  Well, the streak has continued because I really liked Forever Your Concierge and even started to like Maya but it wasn’t something that happened within a chapter or two, it took me the entire book to finally like her.  Gradually that dislike I have had since the previous book, was slowly chipped away and at times I felt horrible for what was going on in her and Travis’ life but a lot of it was because of her.

This isn’t a book that is about a married couple who have found their happily ever after.  No.  It is a book about a married couple, who deeply love each other, have gone through some of the hardest things that a couple could possibly deal with while at the same time trying to not break apart and lose the love they have for each other.  Pain, the past and secrets can destroyers of marriages, some are able to work through those things when others crumble from the strain.

Now is this book all depressing and pain?  No it is also sexy as hell with the sex scenes between Maya and Travis, it at times is funny and also sweet.  What it ends up being is a really good book that will pull at your heart, at times make you angry, and possibly could make you cry.  Jessica Ingro is an author that I have come to expect a book that will make me feel emotions, whether they be anger, sadness, happiness or love, I know that she will not disappoint and ladies and gentleman she nailed it once more!

When the car pulled up to my building, Travis helped me out and followed me in and up to my third floor apartment. At the door, I extricated my keys from my purse and turned to face him. His eyes blazed as he looked down on me, making my palms sweat and my heart race in anticipation of our first official kiss.

When his head dipped, my breath caught. When his mouth touched mine, I instantly opened for him. When his tongue swept inside, I completely lost myself to the feel of it brushing mine as he explored me in the most sensual kiss I had ever had.

His hands came up to frame my face. His head tilted and he deepened the kiss. My toes curled as heat swept through my body with a blinding fierceness.

He broke the kiss far too soon and rested his forehead on mine. "Who knew a kiss could feel like this?"

"I know," I whispered. My eyes finally opening to take in his gorgeous face so close to mine.

"Let me stay tonight, Maya."

The idea was oh so intriguing, but I couldn't bring myself to do it. We barely knew each other, and I didn't want to move too fast.

"Let's take it slow, Travis," I whispered, afraid he would get mad and that would be the end of what promised to be something completely amazing.

"No longer the happiest man in the city, Maya," he informed me and my stomach dipped at the rough and raspy sound of his voice. "Happiest man in the world."


"Goodnight, sweetheart. I'll call you tomorrow." He kissed my forehead and took a step back.

"Goodnight, Travis."

I opened my door and turned back to look at him in front of the stairwell. He had the most endearing expression on his face, and I was pretty sure I fell in love with him right then.
