The Infatuation by Lauren Rowe is book 5 in The Club series. Focusing on Jonas’ brother Josh Faraday, the Playboy, and Sarah’s best friend Kat Morgan, the Party Girl with a Hyphen. This installment of the series focuses on Josh and Kat, picking up where The Club (Book 1) left off.
Let me just start by saying Ms. Rowe’s going to ruin this reader for future book boyfriends. First, she gives us the emotionally sensitive and gorgeous Jonas Faraday who just pulled my heart-strings and now she’s brought to life Josh Faraday. Behind his happy facade and well-toned abs, he is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. He has hidden depths, and like Kat I was wanting to find out more about the real Josh Faraday.
Telling the story from The Reclamation (Book 2) and part of The Redemption (Book 3) from both Josh and Kat’s POVs, Ms. Rowe does an excellent job of keeping The Infatuation feeling new and separate from Jonas/Sarah’s, which I enjoyed. Though I do suggest reading Books 1-3 first, or you will miss out on important events that involve Jonas/Sarah.
Josh and Kat meet because of Jonas, Sarah, and The Club. Immediately, there is a connection between the two, which develops via phone calls and text messages while apart. Then once they are together again to save the world, so to speak, the sexual tension and longing between them is nothing short of intense. Talk about foreplay!
These two characters are so similar: good-hearted, confidant, sexual, funny, both hurt from love and absolutely stubborn! You’ll enjoy reading about these two well-matched opponents and their battle of wills. Who will win, the Playboy or the Party Girl with a Hyphen?
Being Part 1 in Josh and Kat’s story, this was a great first book and the ending left me dying for the next book. I couldn’t believe it just ended there!
Overall, The Infatuation, is a well-written continuation to a great series filled with humor, emotion, and deliciously sexy scenes that had me craving more (seriously, Josh and Kat are hot together). I definitely recommend.
