Spoiler-Free Review of Infamous by Lex Croucher
Infamous by Lex Croucher is a fun, historical, queer romcom that was addictive and a joy to read. Oh, and it’s hilarious!
It is the characters who make this book special. Eddie and Rose follow the standard plot beats for a romantic comedy, but their personalities, humour, and relationships with each other and the side characters are the heart of this story.
Lex Croucher’s writing style is so easy to read. They have this way of writing which makes it look easy when it’s definitely not! I found myself constantly surprised by how many pages had gone by on the rare occasions I looked up from the story.
A beautifully written historical romance for people who enjoyed Bridgerton, but wanted it to be gayer!
22-year-old aspiring writer Edith ‘Eddie’ Miller and her best friend Rose have always done everything together-climbing trees, throwing grapes at boys, sneaking bottles of wine, practicing kissing . . .
But following their debutante ball Rose is suddenly talking about marriage, and Eddie is horrified.
When Eddie meets charming, renowned poet Nash Nicholson, he invites her to his crumbling Gothic estate in the countryside. The entourage of eccentric artists indulging in pure hedonism is exactly what Eddie needs in order to forget Rose and finish her novel.
But Eddie might discover the world of famous literary icons isn’t all poems and pleasure . . .
