I was so excited to finally have another book by Vi Keeland in my hands! The Invitation! She is definitely one of my favorite romance authors. I love the mixture of interesting story, humor and (steamy) love. She is an absolute expert in this and doesn’t disappoint. So before I tell you more about what I think about “The Invitation”, here’s the blurb (Link to Goodreads):
The first time I met Hudson Rothschild was at a wedding. I’d received an unexpected invitation to one of the swankiest venues in the city. Hudson was a groomsman and quite possibly the most gorgeous man I’d ever laid eyes on. He asked me to dance, and our chemistry was off the charts. I knew it wasn’t a good idea to get involved with him, considering the wedding I was at. But our connection was intense, and I was having a great time.
Though the fun came to a screeching halt when Hudson figured out I wasn’t who I’d said I was. You see, that unexpected invitation I received? Well, it hadn’t actually been addressed to me—it was sent to my ex-roommate who’d bounced a check for two months’ rent and moved out in the middle of the night. I figured she owed me an expensive night out, but I guess, technically, I was crashing the wedding.
Once caught, I couldn’t get out of there fast enough. As I bolted for the door, I might’ve plucked a few bottles of expensive champagne off the tables I passed, all while the gorgeous, angry groomsman was hot on my tail. Outside, I jumped into a taxi. My heart ricocheted against my ribs as we drove down the block—but at least I’d escaped unscathed. Or so I thought. Until I realized I’d left my cell phone behind at the table.
Take one guess who found it? This is the crazy story of how Hudson Rothschild and I met. But trust me, it’s only the tip of the iceberg.
This story was definitely a fun and entertaining read. I fell in love with Hudson right away, he was the perfect book boyfriend. And Stella is a strong heroine, too, that I could relate to very much. You can’t go wrong with this story. It’s a (kinda) slow-burning office romance, that gives you all the feels. There was one twist at the end of the book that seemed a bit too far-fetched to me, but that doesn’t bother that much. Overall, I just simply enjoyed this read and can recommend it to you without a doubt!
