Christina Hoffman's debut book is about 2 people finding their ways through life, with no expectations and without any strings attached. Christina has woven a story involving likeable characters who are both goal-oriented and have futures. In other words, they are ordinary. They aren't into any fetish scenes, they aren't one person by day and another at night. This is an old-fashioned love story, at a time when readers are being flogged and whipped every night, in a tiring storyline before they close their eyes for sleep.
Christina's writing is eloquent in it's perfection. She is an author to follow and has an amazing future ahead of her as a literary story teller.
If you are one of those people who is constantly saying, "just one more chapter," you will really like the length of the chapters! Christina keeps a nice pace and makes her chapters just the right size. You will get your reading fix and the right amount of sleep!

Oh wow!!! Christina Hoffman's sensuous romance Invitation, is the Bomb! I love it when authors use realistic characters in their stories. The hero and heroine are not your typical NAR pair of superlative beings. The issues in their past don't just lend themselves to one break up to make up session. No, Christina's brilliance outlined the true and continual struggles manifested in the relationship of the flawed. But for every personality defect Madison Spencer and Liam Mason exuded, there is an effervescent quality gleaming through them that draws you in and forces you to root for their happiness. Let me tell you why.......

For the pass two years, Madison has worked hard to sequester her social life. From her frumpy shapeless clothing, to her quiet standoffish demeanor, she believes living this way will keep her safe from the iniquitous, male species. Fear guides her daily and as much as she wants to close herself off from everything to be a hermit, she is currently in medical school and beginning her residency. Madison truly believes having a romantic interlude will not occur in her lifetime but then she see's him, and every cell in her body awakens forcing her to rethink this whole "no social life" existence. As hard as she tries, she just can't help but be drawn by Liam's magnetism. Amazingly, she takes a chance and goes out with him, noticing how comfortable and relaxed she is with him impels her to attempt to experience more. And when she does, she finds new life with a world of possibilities. Liam can't seem to get enough of Madison and that scares him! He plans to have a successful medical career without the depressing long term entanglement. So he decides to have fun with his gorgeous colleague.

I have been wanting to read this since I saw the blitz the first time. I bought it back in May but haven’t had a spare spot on my calendar until now when I made room because it was on tour. The blurb sucked me in when I read it and I had to grab it.

It was a good story. I read it in one sitting, swiping the pages quickly to see what would happen next. Madison has been hurt, violated, and then humiliated and shamed by the people who should be supporting her. The only one who seemed to have her back was her best friend, Chloe.

We didn’t get to know Chloe well in this book, but I really wanted to reach through the pages and b*tch slap her. She drove me crazy. We knew that after what happened to Madison occured, she packed up and moved in with Chloe. At this point, they are roommates while going through their residencies in med school. She seemed like a pretty crappy friend to me honestly. (That doesn’t take away from the story at all, it adds a bit to it.)

Liam has his own issues, which I really wish that Christina had gone into more. I think that would have deepened my connection to him. That being said, he still seemed like a good guy who laid it all out there for her to begin with and Madison agreed.

I kind of wanted to grab her and say you agreed to this in the beginning when she started off on a tangent, then I remembered we are women, some of us tend to say and mean one things and then our hearts get involved.

All in all, it was a good story, I could have used a bit more in certain situations to connect more with the characters, but I did enjoy it. I have been hedging between 3.5 and 4 stars. I’m going with 4 because I did continuously read it, enjoyed the spicy scenes, and didn’t think that I really wanted to put it down. Just a little bit more emotion or something that would have connected me to the characters would have pushed it up to 5.

Madison, going by her nickname - Maddie, is in a place where a romantic relationship is a definite no-go. Despite herself, however, when she meets fellow student-doctor Liam there is an immediate physical reaction. Is it just lust or is there a real love connection possible between the two? Chloe, Maddie's best friend, also acts as her 'bodyguard' helping her to stay true to her commitment to stay free of romantic encumbrances. Maddie takes over, literally, as she begins a no-strings attached, no romance relationship with Liam. It wasn't hard to experience Liam's willing surrender to her powerful desires. Being incredibly handsome and desirable, Liam has never enjoyed becoming someone's boy-toy as much as when he surrenders to Maddie. Chloe, however, is more than unhappy about Maddie's turnabout, reminding her time and again about the recent ending of a relationship that nearly killed Maddie in it's destructive force. She also reminds Maddie that she must concentrate on her school if she truly wants to become a full-fledged doctor. Chloe believes Maddie is already half in love with Liam.

Maddie has an angry father, a minister, who believes the worst of her and when he finds out about the light, airy no-commitments relationship she has with Liam calls her ugly names and with Chloe backing him up, Maddie orders them out, promptly falls into the pit of depression, sees herself in a negative way and avoids her Liam. While he appears, to Maddie, to really be upset by their parting, Liam gives Maddie the 'we can't take this relationship seriously' speech and Maddie becomes confused and, finally, puts her focus back into her medical career. The reader of Invitation longs for the relationship between the two to take hold and become serious. This is an enjoyable read for an easy reading week. I recommend it to those who love this type of romance. ~JoEllen
