Student or Learner
Would you tell me whether I have observed the sequence of tenses in the following self made sentence?
He had consequently been invited five times to take part in the discussion and finally he agreed with reluctance.
Thanks for your efforts.

Your version is OK, but I would put 'consequently' where I have put the asterisk.
Note that this is also acceptable: He was consequently invited five times .... and finally agreed... ,
as is (depending on the context): He had consequently been invited ... and had finally agreed ... .
