These Authors Kept Me Company in 2020
One of the best things in 2020 was how I had time to read. One of these days, I will show you a sample of my calendar that shows you my day that consisted of walking, running, cooking, washing the dishes. Rinse. Repeat.
I signed up for Audible Escape last year that gave me access to a ton of Romance novels for free or included in my membership. Through that membership I found some of the best romance novels I've ever read. Honestly, though, most of them were from the M/M sub genre. One of those series is the Like Us series by the writing duo of Becca & Krista Ritchie.
LIKE US Series:
This series is a spin off from the authors' Addicted & Calloway Sisters' series. Truthfully, I only read some of the books from the series mentioned. I couldn't handle the angst, so I decided to forgo them altogether and read the spin off. The characters in Like Us are the children of the Calloway sisters. So if you're a fan of that series, I highly recommend you check these out.
- DAMAGED LIKE US starts us off with Maximoff Hale about to lose his old bodyguard and will be replaced by his long time nemesis, Farrow Keane. These two together was like a slowly simmering pressure cooker. Farrow Keane was Lily Calloway's bodyguard who also moonlighted as a doctor. So in this book, we see their relationship make an about turn. Along with that, the pitfalls of having a clandestine relationship. It comes to a head towards the end.
- LOVERS LIKE US shows us Maximoff and Farrow hiding their relationship from the world. And although Maximoff's parents (Lily & Loren) have given them a tentative approval, it was tenuous at best. I absolutely loved how they came out in the end. So very millennial of them.
- ALPHAS LIKE US Far-Row's relationship gets tested, but they're solid as a rock. Farrow also had to decided on his original career path or to keep going as Maximoff's bodyguard.
- HEADSTRONG LIKE US. There's a wedding! Lol.
