The Invitation by Erika Wilde gives us another glimpse into the lives of Dean and Jillian. I have come to really enjoy each book in this series and have been patiently (not really) waiting for The Invitation which is the prelude to the Players Club.
As Dean and Jillian’s twentyith wedding anniversary approaches, Dean believes he has found the perfect present for Jillian. He is goes to his best friend and partner Mac and ask for an Invitation to the players club. A local private club that Mac has been a member of for several years (as well as some other members of his team). The night of their wedding anniversary Dean gives Jillian the invitation. He leaves the decision to accept or decline up to her. With Jillian’s new found interest in spicing thins up she accepts. Dean and Jillian are off to the Player’s Club!
“It’s our twentieth anniversary, baby. I’m not done with you yet, especially after that nice comment of yours. Before the night is through, I want you to see fucking fireworks.”
The Invitation is a truly fabulous story. While the title centers around their invite to the club the story contains so much more that the players club. There are snippets of Dean and Jillian’s early dating and marriage. What I found to be the most interesting was the continual blossoming of Jillian. Now that her children are grown she is feeling the “empty nest” and soon as the opportunity to work outside the home. Dean being Dean does not want Jillian to work. How will Jillian’s job affect Dean and their marriage.
Dean is the ultimate alpha male and this story shows it more than the others. Their time at the Player’s Club is so HOT! He pushes Jillian to experience things she might not have done if they weren’t at the club. Though he is in control at work and at the club he is starting to feel a little out of it when Jillian tells him that she was offered a job. Because of his past he is adamant that she doesn’t work. Later on Dean realizes that he is being completely harsh in his refusal to allow Jillian to work but he has always prided himself on taking care of his family. Dean has to confront some of his demons in and was really great to see that such an alpha male can be vulnerable. It shows that everyone has insecurities he just better at hiding it than others.
“Do you want me?” “I want my wife.”
Again I absolutely loved this story. I could read a new story of Dean and Jillian all the time. They are like a fine wine they get better with age!
“So you think I can be mollified with hot sex?” “You’re a man, aren’t you?”
