Damaged Like Us (Like Us #1) by Krista Ritchie, Becca Ritchie

4-stars
Overall Rating: 4 Stars
Title: Damaged Like Us
Author: Krista Ritchie, Becca Ritchie
Series: Like Us #1
Format: Audiobook purchased from Audible
Synopsis:
Don’t date your bodyguard.
It was the one rule he had to break.

Maximoff Hale is a force of nature. A ship unwilling to be steered. Headstrong, resilient, and wholly responsible — the twenty-two-year-old alpha billionaire can handle his unconventional life. By noon, lunch can turn into a mob of screaming fans. By two, his face is all over the internet.

Born into one of the most famous families in the country, his celebrity status began at birth.

He is certified American royalty.

When he’s assigned a new 24/7 bodyguard, he comes face-to-face with the worst case scenario: being attached to the tattooed, MMA-trained, Yale graduate who’s known for “going rogue” in the security team — and who fills 1/3 of Maximoff’s sexual fantasies.

Twenty-seven-year-old Farrow Keene has one job: protect Maximoff Hale. Flirting, dating, and hot sex falls far, far out of the boundary of his bodyguard duties and into “termination” territory. But when feelings surface, protecting the sexy-as-sin, stubborn celebrity becomes increasingly complicated.

Together, boundaries blur, and being exposed could mean catastrophic consequences for both.

The Like Us series is a true series, one continuous timeline, that follows a family of wealthy celebrities and the people that protect them. Damaged Like Us can be read and enjoyed without reading any of Krista & Becca’s other novels.

Coming Soon: Mini-Reviews {September 2018}

Good morning, book lover friends!

I’m currently trying not to cry because I can’t find a way to watch the Discovery of Witches TV show here in the US! That book series is one of my all-time favorites and it’s killing me not to be able to see those characters come to life.

Anyway…

Here are the reviews that are coming up over the next few weeks + their mini-reviews!

Recently Added to My TBR (July 2018)

I’m just settling in from a Date Day with my youngest daughter, Violet (3yo). Her sister has been at my parents house for a couple days and my husband was gone for the day, so I took advantage of the opportunity to have some fun, just her and I.

We went bowling, played in the arcade, went out to lunch, got some FroYo, went to the library, then came home and promptly took a nap. I actually slept, too! Which is rare. Usually, I can’t turn my brain off and use the opportunity to get some stuff done, but I passed right out.

Anyway, this is a fairly new feature I’ve added to the blog last month where I show you all the books that I’ve added to my TBR! (As if the thing isn’t long enough.

Here are all the books I’ve added to my TBR this month

(In order from date added. Titles link to Goodreads.)

TBH I’m not sure why I added Dr. Strange Beard to my TBR when I haven’t even read the first book, but I’m sure I’ll love the series, so I’m not mad about it. After recently reading my first Tammara Webber and enjoying it, I decided to check out some of her other books and Between the Lines looked really good. I actually only recently realized, after reading Legendary, that the third book in the trilogy had a title! As for Toil and Trouble, I mean, the cover is freaking gorgeous and the topic is exciting!

 

 


I read the first part of Jake Undone at the end of Gemini, and it got me hooked enough to add it to my TBR (even though Penelope Ward books have either been complete misses for me or just OK).


Most of these books and some of the ones below were added to my TBR after reading this post by Book Twins Reviews!


I’m actually surprised that To Kill a Kingdom wasn’t already on my TBR!

 


After finally reading The Kiss Quotient, I added Helen Hoang’s other book! The last three are books that I found at my local library’s little used book store. They’re a Persephone retelling!


Have you read any of these books? What have you added to you TBR this month?

To Be Read ASAP List (July 2017)

tbr-asap

In putting together this list of books, I soon realized that this list is far too long for my comfort level. What I’m showing here is only a fraction of my full To Be Read As Soon As Possible list… which is only a fraction of my To Be Read list.

Le sigh.

In any case, most of these books I have not purchased yet. Books that make the cut on the particular list are books that have come highly recommended by multiple sources, are ARCs, or they are books written by authors who will be attending the Readers & Writers event in Tampa next month.
