KHAOS 
I’m not living under any kind of false pretenses here. I know I’m basically a rapper’s attitude with R&B feelings and a pop star’s bank account. 
There were a lot of ways to describe my unconventional lifestyle of part time cult member and full time showman. 
Risk taker. 
Exuberant. 
And my personal favorite adjective: undomesticated. 
I surrounded myself with people who liked a good time but left after they served their purpose of making sure I felt nothing but top shelf feelings. 
I wasn’t about to be like my brothers who let the darkness eat away at their vindication. The only crime I had ever committed was waving the glory of being invited, of saying I came and conquered around like a badge of honor. 
Spoiler alert: None of that earned me respect. 
There’s only one girl who managed to rob me of my fake smile...and my watch. 

GRACE 
I was a throw away, street trash, a child abandoned and scooped up by the bad people you only hear about after they get caught. 
I was hard in a way people found uncomfortable and determined too much work to rehabilitate into society again. I was found guilty over and over enough to let the bad things become who I am, blurring the lines between freedom and a jail sentence. 
Fraud. 
Thief. 
And my least favorite: fake girlfriend to a scary ass kingpin. 
Forced out of a childhood I was surrounded by darkness, evil, and the kind of cutthroat loyalty that landed your body so mutilated they wouldn’t be able to tell who you were if you fell out of obedience. 
They accepted me like family and there’s no quitting your family. 
I had the respect to match my rap sheet. 
There’s only one guy who managed to exonerate me… and my invisible wings.






EXCERPT

I was too consumed to keep my hand going when I exhaled right along with her while I watched her features melt into a kind of bliss I chase daily.
Wasting no time Birdy got up from the bed, holding all of my attention, crawling on her hands and knees straight for me. That same burning sensation from not breathing took up the space in my chest when she kneeled down between my legs.
The same stare wasn’t breaking between us, it was like she was willing me to now come on demand. My hand moved painfully slowly, still too determined to split my focus between her and getting off.
I would choose her every time.
Her still labored voice whispered, “I wanna taste you so I know if you taste like sin or secrets.”
Swallowing the lump in my throat I held up my hand and snapped my fingers before I decided to completely fuck the rules. She was sitting there staring up at me in her post-orgasm bliss asking to taste my sins and secrets - and I’m supposed to obey my own rules? Nah, please tell me how I could have that much strength to resist.
Fuck.
Fuck.
Fuck.
Fuck.
Fuckkk me.

Jude 
Before training camp, I went on one last trip. Just me and the beaches of Miami without doting fans and the pressures of fame. Then I ran into Ivy, literally. 
One thing led to another, and we spent a glorious week together. Then she utters the words I never wanted to hear: Just Friends. 
I’m playing the best I’ve ever played, yet somehow with Ivy I keep fumbling. Our lives are worlds apart, but with each text, call, and stolen moment, my feelings for her grow. Can I keep my career and land the woman of my dreams? 

Ivy 
When I met Jude, I had no idea who he was to the world. He was a hot, vacation companion, nothing more. We spent one week getting to know each other, but at the end we went our separate ways as just friends. 
Then he showed up back in my life. Jude Taylor, star wide receiver. 
I don’t care that he’s on the TV every Sunday when I go to my parent’s house or that thousands of people worship him. I care about the man I met in Miami. I thought we could be friends, but the way he makes my heart race when the cameras are off is far from friendly. Every wink, smirk, and deep timbre of his voice makes me question why I ever wanted to be friends. Can I compromise my life plans to allow him a place by my side?

Release Blitz - The Invitation by Vi Keeland




Title: The Invitation
Author: Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 18, 2021


BLURB

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.

TRAILER



EXCERPT

Oh, God no! Poor Carter. No wonder he doesn’t want any close connections or relationships. 
“I can’t believe you hadn’t heard yet. I figured it was part of the Sunnyville orientation. Most women as soon as they spot him run straight for him, and then they learn quick.” 
I can’t help but laugh. “No. The first time I met him was here in the hospital, he wouldn’t even look at me. Then he saved me from my apartment fire. I was naked.” 
Teagan burst out laughing. “I’m sorry. I still can’t get over that. That was horrible.” 
“Yeah, you seem real shook up over my near-death experience.” 
“But you’re okay!” 
I roll my eyes. The call signal starts flashing for one of the rooms. “I’ll take it!” Giving her a mock frown, I groan, “That’ll give you time to recover.”
