You’re cordially invited to the wedding of Maximoff Hale & Farrow Keene, and according to Celebrity Crush–the ceremony for this American prince and his tattooed bodyguard is going to be the event of the century.

There will be no wedding crashers.

Including but not limited to: hateful people, rabid fans, nosy paparazzi, and other so-called media.

There will be no drama.

None whatsoever. Because when you put three famous families and their hot bodyguards together, nothing will go down.

There will be no fighting.

No brawls, fists flying, verbal slingshots, or rifts that tear into craters. Lovers only!

Everything will be perfect.

Nothing will go amiss during the happiest, most anticipated occasion of the year. But then again…

They don’t call it the Hale Curse for nothing.

Headstrong Like Us was such a fun read after Jane’s books! Maximoff and Farrow’s story continues in this book.  I had missed Maximoff and Farrow even more than I thought I did.

“You know me better than any guy ever has. You’re my person.”

Moffy never grew up thinking he’d get married while Farrow always dreamed about this day. I love that Farrow is the only person besides Maximoff’s family that makes him vulnerable. It was cute how Moffy tried not be so “sappy” when everyone knows how much he loves Farrow.

I can’t really talk a lot of the plot since there’s a certain character that’s a major spoiler but I really wish something bad happened to either Farrow’s dad or grandmother Calloway. At least Lily had some chosen words with the last one before she could even open her mouth. But really she should’ve shut ties with her years ago. I get that they’re family and all but they deserve better than on top of dealing fans, paparazzi and exes– they also have to deal with family members.

All in all I loved this book and gave it extra half stars because of how much better it was than Tangled Like Us and Sinful Like Us. 

I love so many of these characters but I’m still unsure if I want to continue unless Maximoff and Marrow gets another book.

4.5 stars
