Concierge Service is a fast and fun little romance PD Singer.
Craig's in NYC for a short bit for business. While, he's there, he strikes up a friendship with the hotel's concierge, Joshua. Unfortunately for Joshua, he's riding that fine line with his employers, as he isn't supposed to fraternize with hotel guests. And, unfortunately for both men, there's an attraction between them that they shouldn't act upon.
Craig and Joshua are living very different lives, as Craig is rich and lives in another town. Joshua may have high connections in the city, but he isn't rich and his job can only work in the city where he has said connections.
During their time together, they have to deal with a jealous co-worker, an aggressive business partner, health scares, and the fact that they aren't supposed to be spending time together.
Their romance is fast, but builds up slowly. I am somewhat surprised that I enjoyed these guys as much as I did, but I really did like them. The bond that forms between them is strong and leads to a wonderful, emotional, and life-altering scene.
Concierge Service is great if you're in the mood for a light-hearted (despite the angst) read. PD Singer definitely didn't leave me disappointed with this one.
