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

 

WOWZER!! Even better than the first generation…..

 

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.

WOW!!! I had no idea how much this book would speak to me. I was sceptic at first. I honestly didn’t think that this series could be as awesome as the Calloway Sisters – and luckily I was soooo WRONG!!!

Damaged Like Us is the beginning of an EPIC series. There is no better word to call this book and the upcoming novels – it’s going to be epic!!!! At the beginning there were only three sisters and their boyfriends, now there are 13 cousins. That could mean 13 future books – UNBELIEVABLE!!!!

But let’s get back to Damaged Like Us. This book was EVERYTHING I could have hoped for. The complicated life-style that I’ve came to crave and expect was as entertaining as I remember. It pulled me in and I devoured this book in one sitting. The unique characters and plot lines hat kept me reading far into the night were back and as captivating as ever.

In Damaged Like Us I fell utterly in love with Maximoff Hale – he was the very best of Loren, Ryke and Connor. And I was blown away by his philanthropic life-style. His down-to-earth personality was the very opposite to what I expected. And his philanthropic company complemented his families corporations and allowed him to give back to charities and causes that were dear to him. Seeing Maximoff in such an important role was eye-opening.

His struggle with his parents addictions and the constant tabloid presence was evident and heart-breaking. There was never a quiet moment or a break to have a normal life. Maximoff and his entire generation was constantly aware of the press and their lives were changed forever. It was also fascinating to see how everyone of the new generation dealt with the press in their own way. So many unique characters.

Maximoff and Farrow’s relationship was a pleasure to experience. I was totally engrossed and captivated by these two characters. Farrow couldn’t have been more perfect for Moffi, and their banter felt like the most natural thing ever.

Now, after finishing Damaged Like Us I have even more questions than ever. Who will end up with whom? What will happen next? Will any other bodyguard find love with a Hale, Cobalt, or Meadows?

This book was the ultimate beginning. The authors delivered a more than satisfying first installment into a new series. Throughout the entire book I couldn’t believe what an amazing novel Damaged Like Us turned out to be. There was NOTHING I would have changed or done differently.

BRAVO!!!! I’m hooked and can’t wait for book 2.
