    “You come here. That’s where you come. You come here.” ¡Oh, me encantó! Apenas leí la reseña de Infamous me pareció simplemente genial. Adoro los romances de superestrellas de rock y también los romances de amigos a amantes. Esta novela te ofrece ambas opciones, además de unos personajes extraordinarios. Trama: Engancha. Es sencilla, interesante, divertida y tierna. Los diálogos fueron concisos y la historia nunca se volvió aburri...

    4.5 StarsI'm so glad that I took a chance, this is a new to me author, and the first book in the series is a m/f and that wasn't what I was in the mood for, but I just went for it. Thank my lucky stars, this was just the kind of tortured love story I was hoping for. I totally fell for Dr. Silver Fox and Jesse and the Joyride where a pretty hot and entertaining bunch. I will admit I felt a profusion of emotions, from swooning to even highly pissed...

    4.5 Stars.Infamous is a great friends to lovers romance with all the pleasure of the Rock Star theme as well. Jenny Holiday hits all the right notes with this touching romance about Jesse, the rock star, and Hunter, the doctor. Watching them become such close friends while crushing on each other is a joy. I love how Hunter's life as a doctor is shown to be as complex and important (maybe more in some ways) than Jesse's famous job as a singer and ...

    4.5 starsI 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 wi...

    5 Stars! Jesse and Hunter, a budding rockstar and a pediatrician respectively, two people who should never have crossed paths meet on a train from Montreal to Toronto. The two hit it off right away and chat for the entire five-hour trip, but they head off to their separate lives once they step off the train. They meet again when Hunter contacts Jesse whose band, Jesse and the Joyride, has gained much notoriety and popularity over the past two yea...

    Well this book was delightful. I finished the book in 1 day if that says anything. This was a new author to me and I really enjoyed this book. Both MCs were very likable, nice steam, low angst and a different story line. Solid 4 stars.
  • Ivy Deluca
    Jesse meet on a train, just after Hunter, a doctor aka Dr. Baby Silver Fox, has broken up with his long standing, firmly-in-the-closet boyfriend, and Jesse has just been caught in a scandal kissing someone who was not his girlfriend...and unbeknownst to many, not a girl. What happens when a man who will not be someone’s dirty little secret falls for the man whose career banks on his sexuality? Well, some good old fashioned romance happens.The G...

    Though romances starring rock star heroes or heroines aren’t usually on my list of favorites, I may have to make an exception after reading this latest romance by Jenny Holiday. On the strength of my enjoyment of previous stories of hers, in particular the 49th Floor series of romantic comedies, I ended up reading Famous earlier this year. It’s a terrific story about a pop star princess who takes a break from the spotlight by staying with an ...

    4.5 starsSo I've never read Jenny Holiday before, and it seems she's mainly an M/F romance writer, so this may be her first M/M book? Who knows, but if it is was a wonderful M/M debut. I loved this. This was like...super slow burn but not at the same time. Because Jesse and Hunter actually fall in love fairly quickly, over a few months of friendship, and the book skips over time several times in this book, but nothing happens between them until a...
  • Joyfully Jay
    A Joyfully Jay review. 3.75 starsShow me a book with a rock star and that’s a book I am more than likely to read. Jenny Holiday is a new to me author and I was a bit up and down with this book the whole way through. The set up here is cute as Jesse and Hunter meet on a train and just click. We get dual point of view, which really helps here to understand both characters. Jesse knows he’s bisexual but hasn’t had much of a chance to explore i...
  • Gillian
    4 starsA solidly entertaining book by a new-to-me author. There are tropes galore here but they're all done really well, with lovable characters and a terrific HEA. Plus, it's set mostly in Toronto (shout out to my hometown) which made it all the more endearing. If you love rock-star romances...or friends to lovers stories...or an OFY trope that DOESN'T discount the fact that bisexual people exist...then you'll probably end up enjoying this one a...

    It's been months since I stayed awake into the wee small hours because I just had to finish a book, I regret nothing! One of the best reads of the year.

  • The Novel Approach Reviews
    4.5 StarsI didn’t really research this book before I picked it up, based off the blurb, because I was in the mood for one of my favorite contemporary reads. I love music, and I love reading, so I get all kinds of happy when I can combine my two loves together. What I didn’t realize is that there was a book one. In fact, until I sat down to get the information to write this review, I hadn’t a clue since it reads as a stand-alone just fine. S...

    3,5 stars! This was not your typical rock star book and for that I was greatful. I love the friends to lovers trope and here it was done beautifully. I won't say more, just go and read it!
  • Elaine
    They met on a train, a paediatrician upset at the breakdown of his relationship and a musician on the way to stardom if he can keep his sexuality secret. They instantly connect emotionally but only virtually. Doctor Hunter Wyatt has spent a decade pretending to only room with his partner and he’s had enough of hiding. Now he wants an honest relationship where he isn’t someone’s ‘dirty little secret’. Jesse Jamison is pretending to be st...

    "Received an Advance Reader Copy in exchange for a fair review"4.5 starsI think “Infamous” is a wonderful story with great characters and I’m thrilled to have found a new and exciting author, Jenny Holiday. Her writing style really captures the joy and uniqueness of falling in love with the right person and all those confusing and troubling feelings of longing, anxiety and fear associated with it (plus other issues related to the main chara...

  • Daphne
    There were so many competing tropes in this book - friends to lovers, rock star, OFY... and the out for you had the potential to be one of my pet peeves (blackmailing someone to force them to come out). Happily, it all worked wonderfully together to create a gorgeous book. The writing was evocative and painted beautiful pictures (like the dash in the rain imagery). Hunter and Jesse’s relationship evolved slowly over some time and the men went f...

    My Review:This was my first book that I've read by Jenny Holiday, but it certainly won't be my last. Wow...this book was so, so good!Jesse and Hunter meet on the train. It's a chance meeting...before Jesse's band have really made it big and just after Hunter had broken up with his boyfriend of 8 years. They hit it off in a spectacular way...but Hunter has no idea that Jesse is bisexual. Hunter is a doctor...pediatrics and two years later when he ...

    ~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~4.5*s of delicious hotnessThe second book in the series, I read it as a stand-alone. I shall however be reading 'Famous' when I get the time, because Ms Holiday's writing style is much to my liking. This is a really well constructed story, which I have added already to my reread list. This is both because it is a super hot and cute story, but also because I know I read it...
  • JoAnna G
    Oh my gosh!! I loved this book….hard. I am starting with this book is one of my top ten of the year. It was everything wrapped up in a beautiful, heartwarming friends to lovers story. Oh, and a rockstar and sexy as get the heck out doctor. It is well written and gripping and these two are so different. Their relationship spans time. What makes it good like I said is their friendship. I liked the way they met. Two people sitting side by side in ...
  • hedgehog
    Instacrush but not instalove: this is a sweet friends-to-lovers story where believable amounts of time pass and the characters get to know each other properly before flinging around Declarations of Undying Love. I'm biased towards any story where the characters stand around PINING, and this had a perfect balance of drawing out the PINING (a little over half the book!) while not turning both characters into idiots for not acting on their mutual at...
