Oleg Petrosian, the self-made Russian Billionaire, wonders when his un-beating heart will experience a glimmer of love. On a business trip to London, to seal a gas deal, he meets Sam Latham, the chef at a swanky restaurant in South Kensington. After she caters for a business meeting at his nearby home, his private Learjet (flown by his cosmonaut sister) whisks Oleg, Sam and her younger actress sister to Oleg's cliff top home in Russia's Anapa, a health resort on the Black Sea. But can their fledgling romance survive Oleg's deep, dark secret?
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review from the author. The Petrosian Invitation was a quick lovely read. I think I have been reading to much YA because the language in this book was great! I really liked the dialogue between the characters. Sam is a chef working in a job where her talents not utilized. She is pealing potatoes when she should be running the kitchen. Then on a night when the head chef is not able to come to work Sam steps in. Her dessert awakens the taste buds of Oleg. Oleg is not your average guy either. He happens to be a vampire. A vampire who has become very interested in the chef who created such a wonderful dessert. After meeting Sam, Olegs unbeating heart begins to stir. He then invites her to cater for him at his residence. That goes so well that they take a Learjet to the Black Sea to cater another event. Has Oleg found the one who makes him feel again? Will his true nature be a deal breaker for Sam?
I really liked Sams sister. She is quite funny and great during the stressful bits of the story. Trev was also great. He really helped Oleg think things through. Oleg's sister was a riot! Sometimes I had no idea what she was talking about but, it was funny.
Oleg is your handsome vampire with loads of money and time. He as been trying to find that special someone for a while. Sam awakens his dead body. It was a short story but, a lot happened. There are ups and downs but, also some very sweet times. They moved fast but, it felt right. I loved how it ended!
This was a great short read. I would recommend it to just about anyone!
