Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling Authors Krista & Becca Ritchie, comes the next book in their sexy new contemporary romance series.

Twenty-seven-year-old Farrow Keene lives by his actions, and his actions say he's the best at whatever he does. As a 24/7 bodyguard and the new boyfriend to Maximoff Hale, protecting the headstrong, alpha billionaire has never been more complicated. And one rule can't be bent: Keep your relationship secret from the public.

Farrow is confident he's the best man for the job. But a twist in Maximoff's fast-paced life sticks them with the rest of Security Force Omega and their clients. On the road. In a sleeper tour bus. For four rocky months.

Sexual frustrations, check. Road trip drama, check. Awkward bonding, check. But Farrow couldn't have accounted for a high-risk threat (identity: unknown) that targets Maximoff before the ignition even turns. And it hits Farrow - someone has it out for the guy he loves. Every day, Maximoff & Farrow's feelings grow stronger, and together, they'll either sink or swim.

The Like Us series is a true series, one continuous timeline, that follows a family of wealthy celebrities and the people that protect them. You must listen to Damaged Like Us, book one, before listening to Lovers Like Us.

Can't get enough of this series and characters! <3

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely. The story (and whole series) are captivating, the characters are compelling and lovable and the audio narration is great!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Out of the main characters, Maximoff is my favorite because he's just so endearing. He's masculine and strong in so many ways, compassionate, loving, and selfless to a fault, and also super witty. I love him. I honestly love every character so much though - that's definitely what captures my attention about this series the most.

Have you listened to any of J.F. Harding and Alexander Cendese ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, in Damaged Like Us. It was consistent with their performance for the characters from the last book. Alexander Cendese as Farrow was a little more loud/aggressive sounding than I picture him to be but still enjoyable. I prefer them both on 1.25x or 1.5x speed though.

Any additional comments?

I'm always so impressed and satisfied after reading or listening to a Krista & Becca Ritchie novel. Their writing and story building is excellent. I've read all of their books multiple times and this one is no exception. Can't wait what's in store for us next!

Lovers Like Us Review

Where does Lovers Like Us rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It’s one of the best I’ve ever listened to. I love all of Krista and Becca’s books but I loved how the narrators brought this book to life.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Farrow! I just love everything about him. I love his confidence and his swagger and especially how much he loves Maximoff. I really enjoyed how in this book you get to see how his love for Maximoff grows.

What about J.F. Harding and Alexander Cendese ’s performance did you like?

Both of the narrators embodied their characters so perfectly! It made feel like I was actually inside each of their heads and experiencing everything with them.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes! I had to make myself slow down so I could enjoy it longer.

Any additional comments?

I love all of Krista and Becca’s books and am patiently(not reall) waiting for Alphas Like Us! I can’t wait to see what happens next in Farrow and Maximoff’s relationship.

Overdone to the point of distraction

Not sure what happened here. I like the writing of the Ritchie sisters but this book failed in several key aspects.

1) it was so angsty that half way through the book I was pretty much done with the Farrow/Maximoff story. It felt like all of the feelings/sensations/obsessions those two had toward each other were stuck on repeat, as if we needed to be reminded every other paragraph. For instance, how Maximoff foind Farrow's tattoed fingers super sexy or his alpha easy confidence irresistible. That is made pretty clear early on and as a listener, it got old hearing it over and over and over, ad nauseam. It got to the point that the revelations and feelings that were supposed to be overpowering by the end, landed kind of flat, sadly.

2) the Ritchie sisters seemed to have found about dozen descriptions that they really liked and used them like filler at every point they could. Not sure why, because none of thier other books that I've listened to suffer from this particular plight, but in this book it got really old, really fast. Along with that they tended to add lots of repetitive, unneeded descriptions that took away from the writing over all. Like they were trying to reach a specific word count and needed to padd everything they could.

I'm not sure if they were rushed to finish this book or what, but it really lacked a lot of what I enjoyed from previous books. However, I truly enjoyed getting to know the side characters better and am hard core shipping a few couples and I'm curious to see where thier story goes

Could not put it down

The expression works for audios, too—in this case, it was my headphones I could not put down. The Ritchies, Cendese, and Harding made me care about these guys even more than I already did coming out of the first one. Normally the dual-performer approach feels unnecessary, but here, as with the first book, the tactic helped to emphasize how these two powerful personalities were coming from very different places and were finding it amazing how close and compatible they'd become. I'm going to be coming back not just to this series but to this installment, a second book that deepens the affection and connections made with the first.

#LoversLikeUs

This series just keeps getting better and every single chapter left me wanting more. This next instalment in the Like Us series sees Maximoff head out on a tour bus with his four oldest cousins and their bodyguards. They are making their way across the States raising money for HMC Philanthropies a charity in which Maximoff founded and is currently the CEO. The real heart of this story is in the details of each and every character. Each person has their own unique personality, but the focus throughout is on the growing love and relationship between Maximoff and his bodyguard Farrow.

Perfect narration choices for both of the main characters. Farrow just oozes self-confidence, sex appeal and raw masculinity. While Maximoff just shines as the loyal, stoic celebrity superstar that he is. I loved every second of this and can happily say this will not be my first or last listen. Amazing series about the second generation of celebrity royalty and their lives in the spotlight.

10/10, and 100% recommend!

What made the experience of listening to Lovers Like Us the most enjoyable?

Other than this being one step closer to bringing my favorite characters to life, the narrators do an amazing job portraying the characters!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Maximoff has been my favorite the whole time, but I have to say that this installment also made me truly fall in love with Farrow. Donnelly also has a special place in my heart! I love them all, okay? They're so tangible, I don't know of any other writers who manage to make characters feel so undeniably real.

What about Alexander Cendese and J.F. Harding ’s performance did you like?

They're amazing at capturing their character's essence. In Damaged Like Us I was partial to Harding, and couldn't imagine a better fit for Maximoff. Similar to my love for Farrow, my appreciation for Cendese grew in this book - he *is* Farrow.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Oh, so many. One of my favorite things about this book is how much it solidified Maximoff and Farrow as a couple. They're it, from now until the end of time... There was one scene towards the end of the book particularly that spoke volumes to me, backstage in a dressing room. And the last chapter actually brought happy tears to my eyes... <3

Any additional comments?

Scene after scene I'd excitedly grin and think, "oh, I love this part!" Lovers Like Us is chock full of pricelessly entertaining and memorable moments. Mostly feel-good with a sprinkle of angst.
This series and its predecessor are the only audiobooks I want to listen to again, and again, and again, and still find new things to love about them every single time
10/10, and 100% recommend!

Not bad, just not as good as book 1

Just found this so-so compared to the first book. I only took a star off of Performance because every so often it was a different voice for the same person, I’m disregarding the fact that one might be thought & the other him speaking out loud, I think it should still be the same voice. Perhaps it was re-recorded, not sure but it just caught my attention.

As for the Story, it wasn’t bad, just didn’t keep my attention as much, found it much easier to pause whereas book 1 I didn’t want to stop listening.

Overall I’d say 3.5*

This world is engrossing!

This series has great narration.

Farrow and Maximoff are amazing in the second installment of this series. It was great to spend more time watching their relationship develop and deepen.

The side characters are receiving more page space which hopefully means they will be getting their own HEA’s later in the series.

awesome narrators

I love the Like Us series, and Lovers Like Us was a 5 star read for me as an ebook. The narrators just take it to the next level though, they do such a fantastic job with the characters. It's so good to listen to.

Disappointing

Terrible lame and desperately in need of a plot. By the end of the book I was hoping the stalker would get them all

I love these books so much

If you could sum up Lovers Like Us in three words, what would they be?

Sexy, Love, epic

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love everyone in this book they all add something special to the story But Maximoff and Farrow are just an amazing couple they play off each other so well. I love that they are both alpha males they are one of my favourite book couples.

Have you listened to any of Alexander Cendese and J.F. Harding ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

The first book Damaged like us is a must read/listen before this one as this is the second part to the story. Also J.F Harding is fab in JB Salsburys Split.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

My whole body and soul love this book so much I just love every book Krista and Becca have written.

Any additional comments?

I can't wait for the next book Alphas like us to come out in March 2018
