Publisher's Summary

It’s a war of wills between stubborn and sexy Josh Faraday and Kat Morgan. A fight to the bed. Arrogant, wealthy playboy Josh is used to getting what he wants. And what he wants is Kat Morgan. 

The minute Josh Faraday meets feisty, vivacious Kat Morgan, he wants her. Not for a relationship, of course. He doesn’t do those. He wants her in his bed. But, to his shock and extreme frustration, Kat won’t play by Josh’s rules like all the others. No, this stubborn woman declares she won't so much as kiss Josh until he divulges some highly personal information.... But it's something Josh has never told anyone, and won't be telling Kat. Not over his dead body, no matter how gorgeous and sexy she is. 

But the chemistry between the pair is explosive, scorching hot electricity like nothing he’s felt before. Oh, God, he’s got to get a taste. He figures all he has to do is wear the sexy woman down with is patented “playboy razzle dazzle” - show her the hotness she’s missing out on and she’ll cave, like all the rest.... The only problem with that strategy? It’s Kat’s strategy, too: she plans to wear Josh down and get what she wants too. 

It’s a war of wills. A match to the bed. Who will crack first? And when they do, will either of their hearts be on the line? 

Infatuation is first book of the Josh and Kat Trilogy. The next two books are Revelation and Consummation, to be heard in order. Infatuation is set in the same world as The Club Trilogy and The Morgan Brothers Series, but you do not have to hear either series first to devour this white-hot love story about Josh Faraday and Kat Morgan. 

Listeners 18+ due to graphic language and adult situations.

Great story!!

Any additional comments?

I listened to this book on Audible. It was released early there because of some issue Audible has with releasing the books of indie authors. I tried really hard to wait until the official release date, but I'm weak. I really stink at reviewing books that I love because they usually devolve into "OMG!!! I FREAKING LOVED THIS BOOK!!! YAAAAASSSSS!!!" or some such nonsense nonsense. In an effort to avoid the inevitable devolution, I'll keep this short. Lauren Rowe has quickly become one of my favorite authors. Though I think I'm a bit outside of her target demographic age-wise, I have no difficulty identifying with her characters. Her writing is smart and witty, and I really like her use of language. Oh, and Lauren's books are freaking HOT. I am very much looking forward to the next ones in this series, while at the same time, I'm kind of hesitant to read them because I'm not ready to let the characters go. I will OF COURSE get them when they are released and devour them just as voraciously as always, but I might feel a little sad about it :)

Just can't finish

I liked the Morgan Brother books so I thought I would give this series a try. I only got through half of the first Club book and gave up. Josh and Kat got better reviews so I thought why not. Did not get any better. I just hated it. The story line and the narration was just terrible. Kat is not a main character I can get behind. Just juvenile and ridiculous. The narration did not help. I got about half way through and I am just irritated by every conversation and internal monologues. Don't waste your time.

PHENOMENAL...... SIMPLY PHENOMENAL

There really should be a sixth star, a Gold star, to be given only when a book surpasses all others and reaches the pinnacle of listening experiences - a talented gifted author delivers a mesmerizing unforgettable story which is brought to life by great narration. And, if that were the case, then this listen would, IMO, get the Gold star because it quite simply blew me away.

For a while it follows alongside Jonas and Sarah's story about finding and catching the Criminals that are illegally running The Club and then it moves the storyline forward as clues are pieced together, more shocking revelations are stumbled across and they all come to the decision that they are way way way out of their depths. But the 'catch the bad guys' is secondary to the main romance driven story of Jonas' drool-worthy, handsome, tattooed and sexy Brother Josh (aka The Playboy) and Sarah's BFF the beautiful, feisty and fun loving Kat (aka The Party Girl). When these two are introduced, the mutual attraction is instant, mind blowing, all consuming and you can almost here the ding ding ding of the Jackpot...... but Playboy Josh has finally met his match, his equal and his Achilles Heel.... because Kat has claws.

Something Josh says has Kat wanting, needing and desperate to read Josh's Application to The Club so she gives him an ultimatum and, at the start, it was just curiosity, a game they played but, as time went by and they grew closer, it became a deep desire to understand him and get to know him better. The ultimatum was no kissing and no sex until he handed over his Application..... but Josh wasn't going to give in to this sexual Terrorist's threats and demands, oh no he'd rather walk away. One week later and they were reunited but now both were more desperate, both were more frustrated and both were more determined to win..... and they both stooped to crazy levels to achieve it. Which led to an intense and insane build-up of lust coupled with emotional need which manifested into endless amounts of slick, smooth, very funny and quick witted banter/texts, loads of dirty talk, some baring of souls and a seismic sexual explosion that was way waaaay off the charts when one of them finally gave in. The sex was like lava..... molten hot, steamy and all consuming.

I was totally and utterly lost in this intense and well written listen..... the characters and plot line have consumed me and I'm frantically writing this review eager to move on to Part II in this Trilogy - although I'm frustrated too because I thought it was just a Duet and now I have to wait for Part III to be released (sob sob). IMO, to get the best from this mind-blowingly awesome series, it would be best to start at book 1, get the background story and deliciously work your way through each and every one of them. Dual POV's and the narrators were great which brought the characters, and all their mixed up emotions, to life..... and made this a very enjoyable listen.

Worth a credit? Never mind creditworthy..... this is Oscar worthy!!

Vegas Baby

This is basically a recap of Jonas and Sarah's story, but told from the POV of Josh and Kat and what they were doing once Jonas figured out that Sarah had been working for criminals instead of a legitimate escort service.

This is everything that happened in Vegas, but what Josh and Kat were up to.

Worse narrators

The story would be good but the narrators make the book awful. Don't waste your time unless they change the narrators.

I'm In Love With This Half Of This Seris!!!!!!

Any additional comments?

I'm on book two because I loved this one so much. It's so funny and and well written. I want to hang out with these people everyday of my life. I find myself at my desk just cracking up laughing. My boss may think I'm smoking some sticky icky pot or something. Get all three books you will love them I'm so impatient about getting to book three while I'm waiting for the Texans vs Chiefs Wildcard game. GO TEXANS!!!

Good but!

I thought it was okay but was exhausted with so much " f" this," f" that! And how many times did they have to put "god" (I made it lower case on purpose) in the language as well. And who immediately goes after someone who is going to be a bodyguard after a day or so ready to jump on the main character. I skipped to the end.

Yikes! Buckle Up, Buttercup!

I personally discovered this author through the Morgan Brothers Series, a delightful bit of rom-com genius that still makes me giggle like a school girl when I think about it. I always thought it was odd that each one of the Morgan Brothers had his own book, but their sister, Kat, sort or had her story told in between the brother's pages. But I was oh, so wrong: lil' sis was not to be outdone by her brothers, because she actually has a trilogy for her story, beginning with this book. Lordy, what a story!

I love the fast pace of the narration and dialogue--it goes along with the snarky attitudes of our main characters. There's never a moment to get bored and go off track with Josh and Kat or the rest of the crew. These guys are totally non-stop in an entertainingly manic way. Both Josh and Kat carry major emotional baggage and don't see things the way a "normal" person probably would, which as you can imagine, leads to all sorts of interesting situations. They're both demanding, strong-willed, basically over-the-top with their needs some times, and not very good at sharing their emotions. Especially Josh. They're destined to fail by all rights. But their chemistry is pure methane and sparks. Holy cow, these two are pure heaven...in a ummm raunchy sort of way.

Readers should take that 18+ designation seriously. Not only are F-bombs dropped with furious frequency, but bedroom scenes are (shall we say) inventive, and seriously hot. If these things are a problem, consider this before you read the book. But if you're either able to overlook this or it's all part of the fun to you, then you'll probably greatly enjoy enjoy this roller-coaster romp of insanity. Just beware of that dreaded cliff-hanger ending: it'll have you running straight into book two.
