4/5 Review: At His Service by Suzanne Rock




Leo Perconti's life is spinning out of control. As head of his family's hotel conglomerate, it's his job to save his family from bankruptcy. At the center of his turmoil is Karin Norell, a quiet, alluring housekeeping manager who compliments his dominating personality and lets him feel in control once more.
As Karin explores her passion her feelings for Leo deepen. Unfortunately, Karin and Leo come from different worlds, and when the two worlds collide, the cost can be devastating. As the service staff at The Palazzo rise up against the Perconti family, both Leo and Karin are faced with losing what each of them holds most dear. Together they must learn that true power comes from vulnerability and trust that can only happen when you let your insecurities go.


**********

No request will be denied,
To save his family's hotel empire, Leo Perconti arrives at Boston's Palazzo prepared to take no prisoners.  His hedonistic siblings have let the grand hotel's standards slide, and the company is teetering on the edge of bankruptcy. But before he takes on his family, he has a no-strings-attached arrangement to consider it... Is it time to put the Do Not Disturb sign up on the door? Or is it too dangerous to mix work with no-holds-barred pleasure?
Is their desire worth the risk?
Sleeping with the boss was never part of hotel intern Karin Norell's plan. But she can't resist Leo's powerful allure... sensual submission is downright addictive with Leo in control.  But that addiction comes with a hefty price, and soon she's caught in a compromising position.  Will Karin be strong enough to pay it? Because when it comes to passion at the Palazzo, Leo is a man who means business. And he won't take no for an answer....
I thought this was a great Italian steamy romance. If you like a story of how a family struggles in the business world and what they are prepared to do this is for you.  I like the power control portrayed by Leo and the struggles he goes thru to save his family's legacy a hotel empire. There are surprises along the way that keep it interesting and lots of sexy sensual scenes.
The parts where the family is not doing their part and then Leo come to take control was great.  When Karin, the intern, is mistaken for housekeeping help and lured to him was fantastic.  She is trying to help out with keeping the staff from strinking and he needs some playtime to offset the control he is having to exert on the family and staff to keep the family empire afloat.  The way he is depressed and stressed out is so very true in lots of people’s lives. He takes medicine to help him out, which is so true nowadays of a lot of people.
