What did you love best about Infamous?
I tried this book on a whim and it ended up being one of the best things I've read in a long time. Jesse is an up and coming rock star who gets caught by the tabloids kissing a guy. His agent tells him that if he plans to make it big he needs to push his bisexuality aside and only date women. Jesse decides success is totally worth the sacrifice.
What Jesse doesn't count on is Hunter. The two had met a few years before and Hunter works with critically ill children and has asked Jesse to visit one of them. From there the two men become good friends. At some point Jesse realizes he loves Hunter but he's not sure he can give up his career. Hunter loves Jesse too but he's not willing to go back in the closet for anyone.
I absolutely loved these two and their relationship. It was such a well written friends to lovers story that I was able to put my dislike of that aside. The slow burn here was great. I loved that the author had them take the time to really build a solid friendship and relationship. They're not an official couple until the end of the book but you don't really notice that because even their time as "just friends" is so loving and sweet. There are a few really romantic scenes that made me all swooney.
This was narrated by Michael Fell and he did a fantastic job. His narration really added to the story and made it more emotional in places. I particularly enjoyed the way he did Jesse. There were a couple scenes where Jesse's pain comes across so well it made my eyes tear up.
This is a totally new author for me and I'm really glad I tried this. It was one of the better written stories in this genre and I can't wait for more from this author. I'm also going to go back and read the first book in this series which is a m/f romance. The narrator is excellent and really added to the overall vibe of the story. I highly recommend this story. It's a gem.
