Hot,hot,hot in & out of the court room.

Two lawyers working for opposite firms. Neither could be in a relationship with each other due to regulations so when They come across each other in a sex club, a club with a rule of what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors it's a win win, or is it?

By invitation only is a hot read, two lawyers getting it on and it's a fan me down read.

I enjoyed the plot, no over the top BDSM sex scenes which I seem to be getting tired of despite it h

Peyton had no idea of what to expect when she receives an invitation to an attend an exclusive party to a membership-only sex club. It was just supposed to be a one-off, but she's intrigued by what and who she finds there. Booker, the sexy attorney who has been a tough adversary, just so happens to be a member. He has no time for relationships, but he's wanted her for years. They have great chemistry as they explore their boundaries. With some unique twists and great characters, Kimberly Knight ...more

Usually Kimberly Knights book can get me out of a book slump. And it's a sad day when that doesn’t happen. This just didn't do it for me. The characters weren't bad I just felt nothing for them. Storyline just left me feeling meh. I still love this author think she's amazing.
Hot , Sexy and Romantic too!

4.5 ⭐!!
I have read many of Kimberly Knight's books and this one did not disappoint! Peyton and Booker are both family lawyers from two different law firms often going up against each other. One specific case brings them together in a sex club which you can only enter By Invitation Only. Things from here get steamy and complicated between Peyton and Booker. Questions concerning their jobs, current relationships and citizenship are circling them as

Wow! Kimberly Knight is definitely a new favorite author. This is my first read of hers. I have to say I want more! This book has exceptional writing, great storyline, strong characters, steamy scenes that had me squirming in my seat. Plus some angst that kept me intrigued to the last page. I love not knowing what to expect. I don't always want a predictable story. I enjoy some uncertainty. By Invitation Only delivered in every way.

Hmmmm. I think if the first 40% of this story had been expanded into novel length, it would have been a 5 star read for me. Because until that point, I was smiling with happiness at having found a new-to-me author who wrote with both intelligence and heat.

Peyton was a great heroine - a successful, level-headed divorce lawyer - and I really enjoyed the time she spent in court and in her office talking to her client. Who knew divorce law could be made interesting? Plus, there was a prett

Kimberly is one of my favourite ever Authors and I never need to read what her books are about I just dive straight in. Some may say I'm biased, and that I never say I was disappointed in one of her books and that's because I never am. Kimberly's books are fantastic and By Invitation Only was no exception.

Peyton and Booker are both Lawyers and are often on opposite sides of the courtroom with each other, but it's not till they come face to face at exclusive sex club 'Sensation' that the sparks

Payton e Booker são uma combinação perfeita, ambos advogados, muito bons no que fazem, maduros e decididos quanto ao que querem. Os personagens secundários também são ótimos e fazem o contraponto perfeito para alavancar ainda mais a história. Eu gostaria muito que tivesse uma história para Randy e Lorelei, ambos amigos do casal.

Ainda não tinha lido nada da autora e talvez por isso a leitura foi uma surpresa das boas! A história é hot, muito hot, mas recheada de elementos que dão consistência ao

By Invitation Only is one HOT book.

Definitely a 5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ star read!!

Payton and Booker work at opposite law firms. Having a relationship with opposing counsel is against the rules. As it is Payton thinks Booker is a grade A jerk. But when they run across one another in a sex club the rules change. What happens behind those closed doors stay behind them.

So it should be a win, win right? WRONG. Sometimes when you have something once you want it again. But can they figure out how to make it work o

Wow! I've always been a fan of Kimberly's books but I think this is my favorite! Everything about this book is original. I love the location, the characters, the plot. It's as steamy as it is romantic. I could just hear Booker's accent when he spoke and my knees went weak. I want to be Peyton! Booker is alpha enough to be sexy but not so much he's an a##hole. The story is told in dual points of view so you know what Booker and Peyton are thinking and has the best HEA!

Booker & Peyton, lawyers who face off in the courtroom. Both would prefer to face off in the bedroom but it's against the rules.
One night. One chance to give in to the forbidden, to give in the that aching need to let go.
But what if one night isn't enough?

It's been so long since I've read this author, By Invitation Only reminded me what I'd been missing.

Ha I think after reading this story everyone is going to want an invitation too! It's sweet, sexy, a bit daring, possessive in a yummy way, intriguing and amazing plus so much more! Sometime we avoid situations or hold back and not give things or people chances for many different reasons! And sometimes things happen to where we feel free of judgments and end up loving the outcomes! Two people that both love their jobs, fight against each other but have a passion and curiosity that fit just right ...more

I was excited when I got the chance to receive this book for a review. I have read other books by Kimberly and just like them I found it hard to put this one down. It is a spicy romantic story of taking chances and letting go of your inhibitions. This book was fun, sexy, hot, and romantic and I assure you it will not disappoint.

I have not found a book of Kimberly Knight's that I didn't like yet. Kimberly Knight is a phenomenal storyteller. You get to know her characters in a way that keeps you engaged and invested. This is definitely another win for her. Steady pacing, fluid story, depth of characters and I love how all the characters are badass, not just the males. Keep up the good work!

What a wonderful modern fairytale... with a wicked twist!!!!!! Well written, interesting, sexy and entertaining, Booker and Peyton's story will delight you! In a world where divorces are a common end nowadays, it's only logical that two divorce lawyers will be the ones defying the odds, as they clearly know what not to do.... But beside the funny and witty side of this amazing book, you will discover the underworld of celebrities as

Eu tive a oportunidade de ler esse livro antecipadamente com o ARC que foi disponibilizado pela autora. Eu nunca tinha lido nada dela, até conhecer Sensation e digo que não me arrependi em momento algum em ter feito essa leitura.

I had the opportunity to read this book in advance with the ARC that was made available by the author. I had never read anything of her until I met By Invitation Only, and I say I did not regret it at any point in doing that reading. The book is narrated in the first person with the views of Peyton Winters and Booker Jameson, the couple of this delightful erotic plot.

Solo su invito è uno dei romanzi auto-conclusivi di Kimberly Knight. Devo dire che i suoi precedenti libri mi hanno entusiasmato di più. Non che questo non sia carino, anzi, la storia ti prende e ti invoglia a sapere come andrà a concludersi, solo che c’è qualcosa che secondo me manca e che rende il tutto un po’ forzato.

Aquela história que começa de um jeito, segue de outro e termina completamente surpreendente. Sensation é um clube exclusivo, onde os famosos e poderosos vão, para terem brincadeiras de adultos, ou seja, clube de sexo.

O ambiente em que a história é passada, não é original, mas existe pontos precisos que fazem a história se tornar única e até provocativa ao leitor.

Será que algum dos dois estará disposto a abrir mão de alguma coisa para ter o outro ao seu lado?

Payton and Booker are a perfect match, both lawyers, very good at what they do, mature and determined about what they want. The secondary characters are also great and make the perfect counterpoint to further leverage the story. I wish I had a story for Randy and Lorelei, both of the couple's friends.
