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.


  • Bad

    By Great super duper book!!!
    The book could’ve been executed better. The book summary should’ve said that it was contemporary and homosexual. The book was way too long! The characters were dry and didn’t have great chemistry. The authors didn’t really get my attention with the characters.
  • Wow! Awesome follow up!

    I ship these two so hard. Looooved the resolution between certain characters hehe ;)
  • Great start to the series

    By Taylor Victoria Mason
    This is a fantastic continuation of the Addicted and Calloway sisters series. It answers questions you had about how those characters evolved, while incorporating new characters in seamlessly. You grow attached to everyone in the books and become interested in what’s next and curious about what’s in between. Recommended highly.

    do your heart a favor and fall in love with Maximoff and Farrow.
  • Absolutely Loved This Book

    By Stassie Jax
    This book is seriously so so so so good. I absolutely loved that they were both alpha males but once they got together they had no problem being vulnerable with each other!! There were so many moments that I found to be unbelievably sweet, particularly the moments where Farrow would stop Moffy from overanalyzing everything and get him to relax atleast a little lol.
  • In Love all over again

    By Trump👎🏼
    I started reading at the very beginning with Lily and Loren's story(Moffy's Mom & dad💖) and fell in love with the core 6(parents❤️) and now I get to see these wonderful characters brought to life again as adults and with their own stories.. Maximoff and Farrow have a wonderful story with some ups and downs and delicious passion along the way and I can't wait to get more and I'm praying we get some of Jane's story and Sully's too💞💞 Thank you ladies for writing yet another wonderful book for me to obsess over.. This is a M/M romance and I highly recommend to anyone who needs an excellent read.! Also, if you haven't read them yet... the Addicted/Callaway series is about the parents and it is amazing and will change your life, I guarantee it❤️❤️❤️
  • Another wonderful read from the Ritchies

    By Angry gardens
    I have loved everything I have read of theirs and this one is just as amazing. Wonderful characters with so much personality and feeling. I cannot wait for more!

    GURLLLLLLLL! This is definitely beyond what I was expecting this book to be! It exceeded my really high expectations. This was my first M/M romance and I think that it was amazing. I felt like the story was well structured, and it included not only Maximoff's siblings and cousins, but also int othe world of the bodyguards. This was everything that the Ritchie Sisters promised and more in my opinion. There wasn't a lot of LiLo, Coballoway, or Raisy, but there presence was definitely there. Also, I have predictions for the sequel already, which by the way, I'm really excited about. I need Lovers Like Us like right now. I legit love this book with all my heart! I will be doing a video review on Damaged Like Us soon. In which I will be going into more detail about everything that encompasses this book.
