MY REVIEW

A sex tape was what made Justine Montgomery into a household name, fodder for the tabloids, and in a word... INFAMOUS. Desperate to save her mother's home, she asks her father for help and he makes her a deal: he'll pay off the mortgage if she co-produces a day-time talk show. Easy peasy. Or maybe not.

Sawyer had turned his rough beginnings into a stable life for himself. He's career-driven and successful. And he's definitely not interested in babysitting the boss's daughter on his latest show. No matter how hot she is how insanely drawn he is to her.

If Justine fails, Sawyer gets a promotion. It doesn't take him long to figure out that there is so much more to this bargain than meets the eye. Soon enough, their feelings for one another start to grow and add to the complications that surround them. Their bitterness starts to fade allowing love to bloom and eventually Sawyer becomes Justine's staunchest ally.

There's a crazy ex (super creepy), a star past her prime, sabotage and setups, rambling conversations and awkward moments, and the many hurdles that must be jumped in order for their relationship to have a surviving chance. The characters were endearing, the plot was charming, and I was satisfied with the ending this couple received.
