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 :)

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!!

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.

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.

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!!!

Didn’t make it past 2.5 hours

I feel like the story started off like i should know these people.
But it’s the 1st book in this series?!

Then the narrators were not great
I felt like I was listening to 14/15 year old valley girl/guys speaking.

I think I actually lost a few brain cells

I mean how many times can one say ROLO or totally.

I’m going to give the brothers Series a try
I see other reviewers swear it’s well written and night and day from this!

Dialogue reads like a comic book

The dialogue sounds like it's coming from the frames of a comic book. No one speaks like this; especially men who are supposed to be highly intelligent and leaders of commerce. I found this trilogy after reading the Morgan Brothers series, the stories of Kat's brothers. These collections cannot be more different. I don't know that I would have listened to that series if I had heard this first. I'm not even sure I can listen to the second book of this trilogy. The story is lame. It doesn't seem much of a leap that there would be a prostitution ring within an exclusive sex club, yet that is the center of all the drama and hinted to political intrigue. The characters are superficial with a lot of nonsensical gamesmanship between them. Josh and Jonas, who seemed mysterious in the Morgan Brothers series, are slathering, adolescent frat boys who were lucky enough to inherit their wealth, but at least are smart enough to know how to keep it (again hinted to). Although they throw their wealth around throughout the story to get people to do their bidding. There is just nothing likeable about any of these characters. I so wanted to like Kat. but she comes across as a self-absorbed adolescent. I dislike the double-standard based on gender when it comes to sexual gratification. However, if someone is having sex to tick of a fantasy bucket list regardless of whether they are attracted to the individual, that is sl***** behavior regardless of gender. Men wouldn't cry about being deemed such, so why should a female character? That's the double-standard, and unfortunately the heroine of this story demonstrates it. The week dialogue offers nothing to showcase the narrator's talents so the best I could give them is an average rating.

I couldn't get beyond the narration to finish.

I love the author, but I had a hard time getting passed the narration to finish.
