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 read Damaged Like Us, Book 1, before reading Lovers Like Us.

Lovers Like Us is second book to Like Us series aka Addicted to You spin off and I’m all here for Maximoff and Farrow’s romance. I had my doubts about bodyguard romance but I’m just loving these two together and I can’t wait to get the third book.

“How much did he love me in our past lives?”
“…great, great love, it was…always you.”

Maximoff Hale always puts his family first but he’s not so careful with his own life. He’s always putting his personal safety at risk to feel free. I love how little things like Farrow buying him a drink mean so much to him and he’s trying his best to keep Farrow safe from the media and to be part of his life and friends.

I have to say I’m disappointed on the reason why Charlie “hates” Moffy. Like, I thought there would’ve been some epic story on how Maximoff wronged him. I think it just made Charlie into more a jerk and I don’t get why people keep defending him but I still love him. I’m just protective of Maximoff but Charle deserves happiness too.

“I don’t want to morph into someone else. I want to be me, whoever that person is, he’s not like you or anyone else, and I’m fighting to find him”

I think Addicted series ruined me. I just loved how the core six were always there for each other but the relationships are all over the place in this series and I was sad how Jane let the rumors get to her. I’m hoping to start liking her as much as I did in the first book again. From what I learned about this book, I’m not so sure if I want to read her books or not.

All in all I enjoyed reading about Moffy and Farrow’s relationship develop but even more I liked learning more about Moffy’s family. I just wish there was one parent in this universe (besides core six) that weren’t awful. Is that too much to ask?
