5.0 out of 5 starsA TRUE TROUBLED LOVE STORY
Reviewed in the United States on September 13, 2018
WOW!! We left Saint and Lucky at the end of SOMETHING ABOUT YOU, happy and excited about getting to L.A. together. Neither one saw the mountains they'd have to climb daily outside of the bedroom. This is a FANTASTIC story of navigation through the pitfalls of everyday reality WHEN love can't conquer ALL. I thought this was a magnificently crafted story that could've been the first few months of anyone's life. It shows how hard adjustments can be and what a big part our own insecurities play in ruining our happiness. My heart wept for Grandma's Helen and Alice. My heart was also broken for Saint's Parents and Grandfather who were taken from HIS life, way too soon. I was happy to see Lucky find himself, to see Saint nurture the man he knew Lucky kept hidden inside. This is a journey of discovery, growth and becoming the men they were destined to be together. I HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK AND THE PREVIOUS BOOK!!!!!
4.0 out of 5 starsWhat happens after they get together?

I'll be honest; Saint and Lucky aren't my favorite Riley Hart couple. However, I did enjoy this book. Los Angeles was portrayed very well (the vastness, the traffic, and yes - the homelessness). Lucky felt like a fish out of water, which is completely understandable. Also understandable was Saint's worry that Lucky couldn't find a way to be happy with him in L.A., and how he dealt with his own anxiety. I enjoyed the ending a lot (no spoilers!), and it was obvious that these two loved each other very much. They just had to find a way to make it all work. Riley Hart made me believe that they did just that!
3.0 out of 5 starsLucky and Saint’s story continues
Reviewed in the United States on August 13, 2018
Lucky moved to Los Angeles to be with Saint. He knows he loves Saint and wants to be with him. Saint wants to make Lucky feel welcome because he is in love too. They continue to learn about each other’s needs and wants.
Outside the house Lucky is overwhelmed. Trying to find a job is difficult. He doesn’t want Saint to take care of him or buy him things. He wants to pull his own weight. He’s driving a Mercedes when he just wants his old truck. The problems multiply, making both men doubt their decision to be together. There will have to be compromises made if they want a life together.
I really liked the characters of Lucky and Saint. I enjoyed the first book. This one just didn’t have the same impact. Their characters lacked something in this story. I know this book was to show what happened after they fell in love but it just felt forced to me. If I hadn’t of read the first book maybe I would of enjoyed this one more.
5.0 out of 5 starsA Different Kind of “Chapter Two”
Reviewed in the United States on September 16, 2018
I loved Lucky and Saint’s story arc and the secondary story involving their respective grandmothers. Add in Lucy’s particular kink (which sounds adorable AF), and I was all in for their book 2. But as we all know, in the real world the course of true love never did run smoothly. And Lucky and Saint are no different. In a positive way, seeing some of those difficulties play out gave Something About Us a ring of truth that’s often lost in the fantasy world of romance writing. While things (not unexpectedly) work out well, it’s not a 100% surety that there won’t be more bumps in their road. But given the strength of Lucky and Saint’s love, I’m sure they will always find a way through.
5.0 out of 5 starsWhat does it take to make a relationship work in the happily ever after?

Something by Us is about the painful adjustments of making a relationship work out in the real world beyond the shiny bubble that surrounds a new couple. As with all her books, Riley Hart provides plenty of heat without it overwhelming the love story. Saint and Lucky are beautiful together as they go on a journey to create the happiness that goes into growing a relationship in the ever after. I also loved to see several key appearances of characters from her other books. This book is well worth your time. I highly recommend it.
Just finished Lucky and Sanit’s Story.... I thought it was beautiful writing and told both from the grandmother’s to Saint and Lucky’s love from how it started from the beginning to the end regardless of the struggles that every relationship has whether M/F , M/M or Trans.... Ms Riley writes with a very real aspect that brings a reader to the story ..... definitely a wonderful story to read.
Riley Hart really paints a very vivid picture you become part of the story. Lucky really needed to figure out who he was and Saint need to grieve and I am glad the both accomplished it in the end. I wish to read more about these two.
Wow! This was perfect, mainly because it wasn't! Lucky and Saint's relationship is clear to them when they're alone, but put them out in the world amongst work colleagues and friends and they start to struggle. As life progresses, they find themselves at odds with each other, and despite trying to have open communication, drawing away from each other. Being in a serious relationship is new to Saint, and having a boyfriend is new to Lucky - let alone being open with it and finally being able to explore who he is outside of his small hometown.
The road is rocky, but their love will prevail... won't it?! You'll have to read it to get the full impact of their story. I loved that it was so real, but also that the angst wasn't due to a lack of communication, cheating or any other regular relationship angst trope. Riley Hart steers clear of those and writes meaningful, insightful and unique romances.
I loved the slight overlap with Austin and Dare from another of the authors series' - made me want to go back and read their story again, so if you haven't read Dare You To then I highly recommend it too.
Amazing book, definitely a series I would recommend, but then I'd recommend anything by this author regardless - she never fails to deliver, either in stand alone books or co-written works. Worth the read!
