Book Description

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 an 'All-American' lifestyle, she can’t pass up her 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 Jessica winds up back in the tabloids - with his teenage daughter right next to her?

Sensuality Level: Hot

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! June 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Irene Preston tells two stories. One is the sensual relationship between Jessica and Morgan. The other is a sweet, family story. What is outstanding and shows her deep talent is HOW she weaves the stories together. Ms. Preston's ability makes this an unforgettable novel. I look forward to many more!

5.0 out of 5 stars WWJCD? June 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
WWJCD? Find out why it's okay for Jessica Sinclair - socialite and troublemaker - not to be June Cleaver.

Irene Preston drops you in the middle of a Hollywood socialite's exciting, glamorous life - the real side of it. Jessica's self-deprecating attitude makes her likeable. She so badly wants to be a PTA mom and falters in her emulation of June Cleaver. I loved watching her learn to be selfless and turn her shortcomings into strengths.

Jessica rocked the step-parent situation. Morgan (whom I imagined as a stressed-out yet charming Patrick Dempsey type) adores Jessica and struggles to reconcile his steadfast nature with her free spirit. The troubled-but-worth-saving-marriage theme came across sympathetically to me.

I give "Infamous" 4.5-5 stars for the masterful writing and endearing, lifelike characters. Irene Preston gets away with the "Big Misunderstanding" plot element, she does it so well. She convinced me it's possible for pride to keep people from communicating while caring enough to hope.

Lots of delightful one-liners, but I won't spoil it for you. Lovely romance. Top-notch writing. Nonstop entertainment. Don't miss Irene Preston's "Infamous."

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced and Fabulous! June 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I just loved this story! It was fast paced, smart, engaging and not to mention 10 kinds of HOT! What a fun premise. I read a lot of romance and this one was one of the best I've ever read. Characters who leap off the page and stay in your head, situations I've never even thought of - this was a really interesting read. I was sad it was over and was wishing for the trilogy! You'll love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sizzling and Captivating! June 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sizzling and captivating! Irene Preston has accomplished a rare feat in the romance novel genre. Sprinkled generously with delectable erotica, INFAMOUS is a suspenseful treatise on the dysfunctional and dishonest communication that all too often destroys love and relationships. This fast-paced novel is tragedy, redemption, and much more. I could not have been more captured by this sizzling romance if it had been a mystery. Beautiful and intelligent writing. Irene, I can't wait for your next blockbuster.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good book and really pretty cover :) June 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I hated reading this book as much as I loved reading it. I found the whole thing so sad. I cried in places that others might not cry in. Both characters resonated so profoundly with me. This is what happens when people don't communicate, when they let their pride get in the way, when they fight for control instead of the actual relationship - misunderstandings. That has been the case for me my entire life; people misunderstand and like Jessica, I learned at a very young age that people don't want to hear the truth. They will believe what they want, and it's usually the scandal that they choose to believe. When you spend your entire life being what others perceive you to be, pretending you're winning because you're not letting them see you sweat, that armor becomes part of you. It's hard to take it off. It's hard to know who to take it off for and when. But if these two characters had been more open about their feelings for each other, and actually said the words they needed to say instead of beating around the bush, they wouldn't have wasted 4 years.

I'll admit my heart ached for Jessica a lot more than it did for Morgan. He seemed a lot more cold and his mask better in place than Jessica's. When the book was in Jessica's POV, I thought Morgan was so cruel to her, I even wondered if Jessica was doing the right thing by trying to salvage their marriage. Once I was privy to Morgan's thoughts, I understood him a bit more, but still I think he was a lot more cruel than Jessica. I think he lashed out worse and I don't think his motives were as just. For such an intelligent man, he sure was a bit dense at times. To believe gossip articles and pictures taken out of context without hearing it from the person themselves is wrong.

This was my first novel from a Crimson Romance author, and I was not disappointed. I'm a sucker for any story set in SoCal, plus this one was well written. Thanks for the great read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot, heartwarming & hilarious! February 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Loved, loved, LOVED this book! Jessica is a fabulously misunderstood heroine in this story, and perfectly believeable because of her celebrity lifestyle and socialite background. The way she brazens things out when life throws her dung is realistic,and also tugs at your heart because you know she's just making things worse for herself. Morgan, her beleaguered husband, is also a genuine character. He's both dazzled and confused by her, and of course doesn't believe a word she says when he is faced with paparazzi 'reports' on her bad girl shenanigans.

Misunderstanding plotlines can be hard to read sometimes because you keep thinking that all the characters have to do is talk to each other, but Morgan and Jessica were both written so well that the misunderstandings plot works. Both characters have flaws, but they also have redeeming qualities, especially the fact that they would both do anything to keep Kinsey (Morgan's daughter) happy. It's Kinsey's sub-plot that holds this whole story together so well. There's plenty of hot sex to burn up the pages, but it's the family plotline that is the heart of the story.

This book is hot, heartwarming, and often hilarious as Jessica attempts to emulate the perfect suburban housewife and win her husband's love. A 5 out of 5 stars for me!
