I do like vampire books but with this one it was about 84 pages on my nook but it took me a really long time to read it. I kept wanting to read other books and then coming back to this one.
You have Oleg who is vampire billionaire and he ends up meeting Sam who is a chef. Well Oleg and Sam end up having feelings for each other and the ending will leave you going oh I didn't really think that would be it.
I do like how Sam is a chef and that is how her and Oleg meet. I think that is a very different story than I have read before. And Oleg sounds really sweet.
There was one part in the book that I had me going okay? It was when there was a fire and Sams sister doesn't really seem to care once Sam is out of the house. She doesn't try to check on her again she just goes on about her business. I know if that was my sister I would have been all up in her face going are you okay? You sure? Can you breath? But with Zoe it didn't happen.
Once the feelings of Sam and Oleg are put out there, Oleg reveals his secret to Sam but she doesn't seem to mind. She doesn't seem to ask questions which I found kind of weird. And what is up with the mob that comes to the door. That was something that I really could not see in this day and age that we live in. But that is just me. I do wish there was more as to how Oleg got turned, it didn't really seem to touch on that too much.
Now let me get to the cover, I think it could do with an upgrade being as if I saw this book in the store I would totally not get it. The color pops but it doesn't call out to me.
If you like reading a vampire story where the main characters like each other but don't just rush into a relationship together than this is a book you may want to give a read.
I believe the author has thoughts of acquiring a new cover. Otherwise, I did find a few typos but nothing to take away from the story, itself. I read it in one sitting and truly enjoyed it. Hope you do as well!

I liked Oleg right away and felt like I was understanding who he was as a person. I felt the same way about Sam, too. These two characters were immediately likable and I wanted them together because they were so adorable. I liked both of their younger siblings and thought they added a bit more character to the story.
The writing drew me in immediately. It was an elegant sort of style that I found charming. Some of the dialogue and jokes went a little over my head since I'm not British, but I still enjoyed it. I only found a few mistakes, but nothing that pulled me out of the writing or showed a severe lack of editing.
The Petrosian Invitation was short, simple, and adorable. Oleg was a vampire, but I didn't feel like that was all that important to the story. It was important, but not in the way I was expecting. The book wasn't full of blood and darkness and the same old vampire romance conflict I'm used to. I wished there was a bit more conflict and that the characters weren't always so polite, though. The book itself is pretty good, though slightly too short and forgettable. I do think a better cover and a more "put together" outward appearance would help it tremendously and make it a little less forgettable.
I would recommend it to anyone looking for a light, slightly humorous, short, and sweet vampire romance. Anyone who enjoys the more civilized vampires who are proper and elegant will probably love the book.
This book was written with splashes of brilliance interspersed with ‘where are we going with this?’ I found a few things piqued my interest only to go nowhere and this, along with the rather bone jarring halt we came to at the end, sort of led me to think there will be a second book following shortly, at least I hope so because it left me with unanswered questions stirring around in my head!
This was overall a good read and I would recommend it for all who enjoy chicklit with a little bite under the cover. I personally love the Vampire genre and this has a lot going for it, just don’t read after dark! I can’t wait for TP Keating’s next release, and hopefully it’s The Petrosian…
