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.
A new, sexy standalone from #1 New York Times Bestseller, Vi Keeland.

This was just what I needed right this moment. A fun, sexy, fluffy read with no angst and loads of fun.

Did I see all the “twists” coming from a mile away? Yes, I did. Did that lessen my enjoyment of the story? Not even a little bit.

Stella is a perfume maker with an amazing sense of smell. She’s also been having an incredibly tough time as of late. Her roommate disappeared owing two months of rent and stealing her favorite shoes. Her finances are not what they used to be and the launch of her dream product is indeterminately postponed due to her aforementioned lack of money.

With a lot of steam to blow, she finds herself in a bit of a tricky situation when she decides to attend a wedding her ex-roommate was invited to. How was she supposed to know the amazingly hot guy she danced with was actually the bride’s brother and in fact knew her ex-roommate?

Unfortunately, even though she’d happily put that big, fat blunder behind her and never think of it again, she’s forced to meet Amazingly Hot Guy, aka Hudson, again when he’s the one to find her forgotten cellphone. One thing leads to another and Stella and Hudson find themselves spending time together and the chemistry between them is so hot you won’t believe.

I loved both Stella and Hudson. I particularly enjoyed that they were two adults and acted like it… most of the time.

Stella was sweet, funny and nice, honestly kind and considerate, as well as a hard worker. Hudson was epically yummy. At first, he comes off as a bit of a jerk, but he was all heart underneath the tough exterior.

The Invitation was just what I expected and exactly what I needed. I had the bestest of times while reading it, and proves why I can always count on a book by Vi Keeland.

Rating: 4.5 “it made me happy” Stars
