R E V I E W ➠ The Invitation by Vi Keeland

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.

RELEASE DATE: January 18, 2020

Not my first read by the author, she is a top 10 favorite and one of my early reads back in the day when I started reading romance. And yes I have read all of her books! This slow burn was worth the wait!

I don’t want to give out too much after realizing what the Blurb gives out, but will say that that is just the beginning. Stella is in a pickle, so a wedding crash is nor would ever be on her radar but her best friend has other plans. Live a little, it’ll be fun they said. Well when your lies get caught and you realize that the person who caught you is the Bride’s brother, things get interesting.
-Stella is a unique heroine, I won’t lie I fell in love with her form the beginning and just loved her. She was unique, quirky, out there, different, sweet soooo sweet. Her little stories, her little hobby, her profession…it just fit so well with her and I loved it. I especially loved her little chocolates she carried around to give out because it can make people happy even for a little.
-Hudson: I had a bone to pick with him for a little then when I found out why I forgave him but was still holding a small grudge against him. When he met Stella at the wedding before the lie and all the truth coming out, they had a moment, a really sweet moment and that’s when I fell in love with them both. He was not only handsome, sexy, smart and just a man who was burned in the worst way, common, but still painful. He did not harbor any hate, he really focused his life on other important things.

That said, I really want to emphasize that this is a SLOW BURN and the moments of sexy scenes are about 90% sizzling and sweet. There isn’t a lot of it but worth the wait. This is more of a story that flows so well together and is beautiful. Every detail, every scene…just plain beautiful. This is my 2nd 2021 MUST READ list item!
