Synopsis:

Twenty-seven-year-old Farrow Keene lives by his All Postsactions, 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 read Damaged Like Us, Book 1, before reading Lovers Like Us.


After the big bombshell in Damaged Like Us, I was wondering where Lovers Like Us would go. I knew we would get lots of Moffy and Farrow time, but I wasn’t sure how their relationship was going to change things between the Hale – Colbalt – Meadows clan. I also wasn’t sure how they were going to be able to keep their relationship a secret from the media. Lovers Like Us answered all of the questions I had. It also made me an even bigger fan of Moffy and Farrow’s relationship.

Moffy has always seemed mature for his age, but he truly grew up in this book. I felt like he gained a deeper understanding of his siblings’ and cousins’ feelings. He also grew to understand Farrow better. I liked how he handled all the situations thrown his way.

Farrow was strong and steady. He was good at being himself. I liked that he didn’t back down from a fight or give into anything that would compromise his beliefs.

My favorite thing about Lovers Like Us was that it showed a real progression in Moffy and Farrow’s relationship. I got to see some ups and some downs, and how their relationship only grew stronger because of them. I was sad when the book ended because I loved where things were for them, and didn’t want to wait to find out what comes next.

I can’t end this review without talking about some of the other family members. I want books for all of them, but I desperately need books for both Jane and Charlie. Jane because I love her and she deserves more than she’s got so far. Charlie because I kind of hate him right now, and I need to understand him better. I also need him to meet his match.

Lovers Like Us took the Like Us series exactly where I wanted it to go. I enjoyed reading this book so much. If you’re a fan of Hale, Meadows, and Cobalts, you’ll love it!

  1. I’m glad to hear that this showed the progression in their relationship. I honestly don’t know if I’ll ever get back to this series, but I’m happy that fans are continuing to love it. I also love those covers! So pretty!!
    Great review, Deanna!

    • I think it was worth reading for a few reasons. 1. Hot santa contest. (That’s all I’m saying, but you neeeeeed it.) 2. The plot twists were pretty awesome. 3. The ending was so dang swoon worthy. It has me wishing I had the third book.
      Thank you!
