This was a sweet story. The young twins were well written. They complimented the story, rather than taking away from it. The problem was the writing. There were a lot of misused words: shutter instead of shudder, lied instead of lay, dawning instead of donning, passed instead of past. You get the idea. The other problem was the tense of the POV, it kept alternating between past and present, sometimes within the same sentence. An intensive edit is needed.
As I said, it was sweet story. The heat level was about 1/5, lots of cloud and wave references. Although this doesn't factor into my rating, it also is not formatted properly for the kindle. You cannot change the font and it defaults to a sanserif font. Even on the tightest setting, the lines are too far apart.
While on vacation in Florida with her 8 year old twin daughters, Widow Taryn Kimble meets Michael Vande-xx, after one of the twins breaks his sunglasses. One thing leads to another and the happy foursome spend the rest of their vacation together. The twins are totally taken by Micheal and let him know how they feel about him, he promises them to keep in touch. Taryn is also very attracted to Michael, but chooses not to reveal her feels. She hasn't had the best of luck when it came to men.
Taryn also knows that her happiness is short lived, because when she gets back to Nashville, she'll be fighting her father-in-law for custody of the twins. Once home, while watching T.V. she discovers that the man she can't stop thinking about, is none other than one of the most eligible bachelor and millionaire from California. Pushing those thoughts aside, Taryn focuses on the issue facing her, keeping her daughters.
Till Michael shows up at her door and offers her a solution to her problems...Marry Him!
Can Taryn accept the offer of a marriage in order to keep custody of her girls, to a man that she is extremely attracted to and have a name-only marriage? Of course she will, and this is where the angst begins. While Michael makes his feeling known, he wants a real marriage; Taryn still tries to fight hers.
Oh the silly games we playing when trying to hide our hearts desires. That is what I felt Taryn was doing for most of the book. Don't get me wrong, I like her character a lot, she was feisty and strong, but with everything she had been through with her past, she didn't really know how to deal with her emotions.
Thank God for Michael and having the patients of a saint. Talk about the man of every girls dream! He was sexy, smart, rich and a body to die for, he could have any women he wanted, yet he only wanted Taryn. He never once falters in his commitment to her and the twins, no matter what Taryn did.
And speaking of Michael brings up the one thing I personally didn't like about this book, Invitation to Love was written all in Taryn POV, I wish we had gotten a peek into Michael's mind as well. To hear his thought would have enhanced this story to a higher level.
All in all I found Invitation to Love a wonderful, charming story and I loved the fact that in the epilogue, we not only get a glimpse at how Taryn and Michael are doing, we get to see what is happening 6 years not, not just months later.
You find things out with the characters that admittedly affected them. But they were both adults who couldn't talk to each other about their feelings. And the actions that were misconstrued, I was shaking my head because it reminded me of high school!
The ending was good tho. Once all the dust settled it was a nice HEA.
This just didn't do it for me
