Invitation Book Tour Highlights

It's so sad to see our authors go, but in tribute we do a recap of the highlights of their blog tour with us at Pump Up Your Book.  Today we're highlighting Christina Hoffman and her Invitation Virtual Book Publicity Tour.

About the Author:
Christina Hoffman was born in London, England. She moved with her family throughout Canada and the US, and has finally put down her suitcase, for now, in San Francisco.
She believes that everyone has the right to feel both smart and sexy. We don’t have to be one or the other! She writes stories about characters who live in the real world and who, somehow, still believe in love.

She’s starting a mini-revolution. She writes sexy stories, but hasn’t lost the romance from her Romances. Enough with whips — back to lips!

She hopes you enjoy her stories and see yourself in her characters. After all, they are based on smart and sexy people, just like you.

Christina’s latest book is the contemporary romance, Invitation.

About the Book:

Madison Spencer is a serious medical student, focused only on work and hiding her beauty and her once-passionate spirit behind a quiet plain-Jane facade. Since she was drugged, stripped, assaulted and photographed by a vengeful ex, she has stayed away from men and kept her heart and body safe.

But when heart-stoppingly gorgeous Dr. Liam Mason walks into her world, she knows she’s in trouble. After finding out about her devastating past, Liam offers to bring her back to life with physical passion. Madison thinks she should be repelled, but she’s intrigued and can’t turn him away. Together they explore days and nights of pleasure, and slowly develop into something more than bedmates.

Deep inside they each wonder if they’ve found their perfect match. But with Liam’s fear of being dragged down by commitment, and Madison’s fear of being hurt by another man threatening to destroy the world they’ve built together, will they each be strong enough and brave enough to risk their hearts to have it all?

Virtual Book Tour Highlights: 
Praise for Invitation:

"Invitation is a wonderful love story full of romance, passion, fun, angst, pain, fear, and self-doubt. The reader is easy drawn into Madison and Liam's story. There is an emotional pull and depth to the storyline that the reader can easily relate to and embrace. What more could a reader ask for then to have two realistic and flawed characters on an emotional journey filled with passion and drama? The romance and real life issues are cleverly interwoven throughout the story, add in some very steamy but not overly done sex scenes that will make you blush and sigh, and what you get is a thoroughly enjoyable and classic love story."

"Madison starts off in the book as broken when it comes to men and with Liam he is so adoringly patient she begins to look at her past from a slightly different perspective. There are a few empowering moments for Madison in the story that readers will love. Excellent read."

"All in all, do I recommend this? Heck yes I recommend this! It’s a short read under 200 pages so that’s pretty amazing. Its sweet and loving dialogue will keep you engaged and smiling throughout the entire book and making you root for Liam and Madison’s romance. Of course you can always just root for Liam….. Heeheehee"

"I have been wanting to read this since I saw the blitz the first time.  I bought it back in May but haven’t had a spare spot on my calendar until now when I made room because it was on tour.  The blurb sucked me in when I read it and I had to grab it."

Memorable Quotes:

"This book just appeared to me one night. I wanted to show a different side of sexual intimacy. I think, with the right person it can be an extremely healing, almost spiritual experience. So, this person, Madison appeared to me. She was damaged and afraid but really, intensely lonely. She wanted to get back into life, to feel like herself  again. I had to figure out how to make that happen for her."

"I knew it would have a happy ending, and I knew there needed to be a lot of physical passion and love. The story decided what it needed to be." I knew it would have a happy ending, and I knew there needed to be a lot of physical passion and love. The story decided what it needed to be."

-- As the Page Turns (click here to read more) 

"The freedom to say what I need to say. I didn’t set out to write erotic scenes in particular, but this story was about a woman who comes back to life after being really shut down. The way she does that is through physical intimacy, and then love. I couldn’t tell this story without saying exactly where she was being touched and how she was responding (and her partner, too). Once I had slapped on that 18+ warning, I felt very free to tell her story."
