Review of At His Service Pt 1 by Suzanne Rock

The bit on the back…

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 centre 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.

Firstly thank you to St Martin’s Press for approving me for all four parts of this miniseries on NetGalley. This is the first I’ve read of Suzanne Rock’s books but I was drawn to it after reading The Affair series by Beth Kery.

The story is all about hotel worker Karin Norell and owner Leo Perconti.

The story starts off with a little bit of background about Karin, getting to know her as a character and a little bit about what’s going on at the Palazzo hotel. The hotel is in trouble but Karin doesn’t know the full extent of it until she accidentally eavesdrops on Leo and his brother Marco talking about the issues.

The story takes a twist into a sinfully erotic scene where a case of mistaken identity allows Karin to completely escape her life for a couple of hours. I love how that escapism feel resonates with the hotel setting. The afternoon the two characters spend together is hot and gives a hint of the spark that there could be between them.

My first thoughts on this miniseries are its well written with interesting characters and interesting circumstances. I’m looking forward to reading the rest.
