Publisher Description

Don’t date your bodyguard.  

It was the one rule he had to break. 

Maximoff Hale is a force of nature. A ship unwilling to be steered. Headstrong, resilient, and wholly responsible — the twenty-two-year-old alpha billionaire can handle his unconventional life. By noon, lunch can turn into a mob of screaming fans. By two, his face is all over the internet. 

Born into one of the most famous families in the country, his celebrity status began at birth. 

He is certified American royalty. 

When he’s assigned a new 24/7 bodyguard, he comes face-to-face with the worst case scenario: being attached to the tattooed, MMA-trained, Yale graduate who’s known for “going rogue” in the security team — and who fills 1/3 of Maximoff's sexual fantasies. 

Twenty-seven-year-old Farrow Keene has one job: protect Maximoff Hale. Flirting, dating, and hot sex falls far, far out of the boundary of his bodyguard duties and into “termination” territory. But when feelings surface, protecting the sexy-as-sin, stubborn celebrity becomes increasingly complicated. 

Together, boundaries blur, and being exposed could mean catastrophic consequences for both.

5 stars!!!

Let me start by saying that this was nothing like I thought it would be. I had like 10 different theories about what was going to happen and who certain characters were going to end up with and I only one came true. So much about this book surprised me (in the best way possible!).

This was such a solid start to the Like Us series. Krista and Becca managed to make me fall in love with every single character. I really hope this series ends up being more than 3 books because we need books about Janie and Sulli, and hopefully we can get more stories for the other characters.

There’s an ensemble of characters here, each one unique in their own way. Moffy, Janie, and Sulli lived up to all of my expectations. Moffy and Janie’s friendship was amazing to read about, it was one of my favorite parts of the book, so was seeing Moffy with his siblings. Sulli didn’t have as much “screen-time” as the other characters, but she is definitely one of the more interesting ones. Hopefully she’ll have a bigger part in Lovers Like Us because I would love to see more of her. Also, the Omega security team was amazing, especially Akara and Quinn. Also, shout out to Jack Highland, I already love you.

There’s a lot more that I want to say, but I’m pretty sure it’s all a spoiler. So I’ll leave you by saying you should definitely read this, and you should go in with zero expectations, because you’ll definitely be wrong.

⭐️⭐️⭐️.5 stars

wow, what a different universe the like us series is from the addicted world, it took some getting used to but i think i’ve found my groove.

we meet moffy (maximoff) and farrow in damaged like us. moffy, son of loren and lily hale, twenty two, and undoubtedly and completely family oriented. this man would do anything for the people he loves. moffy falls head over heals for farrow. he’s fantasized about him since he’s been sixteen, when he was nothing more than his family doctors kid. they had a rivalry growing up, sorta? more like who can one up the other better. fast forward the timeline a bit, and we meet twenty seven year old farrow. he’s body guard to maximoff’s mom lily hale before she transfers him over to be her son’s bodyguard (moffy)

that’s where the story unfolds.

i really liked the cute banter they had going but some of it felt awkward and almost too much at times? it seems like the book is written in a more sexual lense then plot lense. the plot lacked in damaged like us, and to be honest it felt repetitive at times. don’t get me wrong, the sex scenes are amazing, and you can see how they connect in them but i didn’t feel connected to much when reading this story. the plot was basically, i can’t fall for you because you’re my bodyguard. and i found myself at times being like…ok??? and??? your parents seem to love farrow, i’m sure they’d get over you two being intimate and forming a connection and honestly encourage it. there were so many points in the story where i was like wow, they’d love that moffy found someone, why not just be open about it? then the whole jane fiasco could’ve been avoided. idk, it was enjoyable to read and it was nice to see KBR write an MM romance. i noticed moffy and farrow have four books 😳 i’m intrigued to see their story unfold and hopefully the plot pick up from them. off to lovers like us!
