Overview

"Simply fantastic! Infamous has everything I love in a romance: witty dialogue, steamy sex, and great characters. Preston has crafted a fun and flirty book that I couldn't put down!" —Emily McKay, bestselling author of All He Ever Wanted and The Farm

Four years ago, it was pure Hollywood—the windswept beach, the whirlwind romance, the runaway marriage. Unfortunately, the ride into the sunset didn't survive the publication of the bride's tell-all book two months after she said "I Do."

Reclusive venture capitalist Morgan Riley isn't interested in fame. He prefers a quiet life in the suburbs. For his daughter's sake, he agrees to give his notorious wife another chance to be part of their family. Even though she's back at home and fulfilling all his late-night fantasies, he can't help wonder if she misses her high-profile lifestyle and famous friends.

Everyone knows Jessica Sinclair. She's that girl on the cover of all the tabloids. As a Hollywood insider, Jessica has spent her life partying with A-list celebrities, shopping on Rodeo Drive, and living through scandal after scandal. When her estranged husband offers her a second chance at the All-American lifestyle, she can't pass up a shot at real happiness. Back in suburbia, Jessica spends her nights in sexy role-play hoping Morgan will overlook her deficiencies as a homemaker. She spends her days attending P.T.A. meetings, burning cookies, and asking herself "What would June Cleaver do?" More to the point, what will Morgan do when she winds up back in the tabloids—with his teenage daughter right next to her?

I've wanted to buy this book for months. I'd read a teaser from the first chapter and that was all she wrote. Well written and engaging with clearly defined characters. Their very identifiable emotions provoked both my sympathy and impatience because they were real, even if the world these characters inhabited was foreign to me. I found the personal growth of the heroine particularly enjoyable. Her revelation about who was really controlling her public image was a critical moment for her. The emotional and sexual tension was strong and balanced between the hero and heroine and the love scenes were delicious. Ms. Preston, what are you working on next? I'm going to want to read it.

This is a 3.5*** read for me. I don't normally read traditional contemporaries. This one is good. The conflict between Morgan and Jessica is realistic when two people fail to express themselves verbally. It's easy to view their lives from each main character's point of view. Both of which are totally wrong, since we as the reader are seeing both sides. I'll admit, I wanted to tell them to just talk to each other and get on with their lives. Since it's a romance and a Happily Ever After is usually required - the do eventually work out their issues. The little twist at the end was good.

Glitz, Glamor and a Great Plot! I loved this book. From the moment I started reading, I couldn’t put it down. The characters are well-drawn, likeable and relatable and the premise is a fun, modern twist on the marriage-of-convenience theme. Jessica is a Hollywood party girl whose antics routinely get her on the front page of the tabloids. Morgan is a venture capitalist who likes his staid, calm life in the burbs. Four years ago they met, fell in love and got married. And then it all went horribly wrong. Now, Morgan’s daughter needs a mother more than ever before and Jessica moves back in – to care for the stepdaughter she adores and to try to win back the man she never stopped loving. If you’ve ever hidden your true feelings behind a devil-may-care attitude and sky high stiletto pumps, this book’s for you. And if you’re in the mood for sizzling hot, well-written sex you will love “Infamous”.

Sensual, Sexy and HOT! The fast pace of the first chapter blew me away. There was no time wasted in getting the hero and heroine together, with a build-up to the love scene so hot it had me melting with anticipation. The surprise at the end of the chapter made me hurry to turn the page and start the next. The characters of Morgan and Jessica leapt off the pages and lived and breathed in my head. I felt like a voyeur in the bedroom, a peeping Tom in the den and a captive in the pantry, and enjoyed every delicious moment! Jessica and Morgan have history together and not all of it is good. After rushing to answer a call for help from Morgan’s daughter Kinsey, Jessica finds herself pondering a proposition to stay and become more than a standby friend for the girl. Morgan wants her back, even if it means using her love of his daughter and her welfare as leverage. Although the two have an ensuing relationship rife with misgivings and misunderstandings, there is no doubt that both share the same determination that there’s still something between them worth saving.

Irene knows how to set passion ablaze in this terrific tale of the West Coast rich and famous. It's a warm and wonderful story of love and the power of pride to wreak havoc in a relationship--even after the hero's adorable teen brings this couple together. If you like glitz, glamour, and heat along with a really good plot, you'll love this one.

The Hook: A Hollywood wild child and her estranged straight-laced husband take one last stab at making it work. For the sake of his daughter, of course -- not the incredible attraction they can't seem to walk away from. Love It: The main characters have real chemistry and also real challenges to overcome. Jessica knows her flaws, but she's also not afraid to stand up for herself. Leave It: The first chapter starts out with a bang (literally) which I found a bit disorienting since I didn't know the characters. Readers who like spicy might find it the perfect way kick of such a sexy story. Read It If: You like fast-paced, fun stories that are grounded in heart. As someone who works in Hollywood, but also has a very normal life, I found Jessica's struggle to juggle both worlds believable. Skit It If: You blush easily; sex scenes are hot!

A hot and sensual read punctuated with Hollywood moments and flashing cameras, Infamous felt like you were watching a movie at times. Laid-back hero Morgan and the famous heroine Jessica are married but separated in the beginning. But like most couples, they still had to work hard on building their relationship past the bedroom. Even harder some might argue! Especially when a teen is thrown into the equation. Though it took them a while to figure things out, their happily ever after is definitely worth the wait.

Infamous fast-paced, sensuous, and, to put it simply, delectable plot had me turning pages as quickly as I could manage it, all the while fanning myself and drinking lots cold water. Jessica’s reality: fame and money abound is weaved so flawlessly with her wish to have her love reciprocated that, as a woman, is impossible to not relate to her in the most fundamental way. As in many love relationships, assumptions take precedence over dialogue, because love can sometimes feel like walking on an icy lake at the end of winter, but in “Infamous” it makes the reader connect with Jessica and Morgan’s struggles to “make it right” even more.

I read Infamous in an afternoon. And then read it again a few days later because I just couldn't get Jessica and Morgan out of my head. Irene Preston starts this book off hot and it just gets hotter ~ Jessica and Morgan have chemistry that screams off the page. Added to that real-life anxieties that many of us don't think of Hollywood types having. Both the characters have flaws and a long road to reach their happily ever after. If you're a fan of the Hollywood lifestyle, you'll love Infamous.

Irene Preston’s Infamous is pure fun from start to finish. Her characters, Jessica and Morgan, are so well-developed that at times I found myself alternately rooting for them and wanting to have a serious talk with them about their behavior! Both of them absolutely come to life and leap from the page. And little Kinsey? Love at first sight. You’ll be thinking about Infamous long after you put it down!
