Alphas Like Us by Krista and Becca Ritchie continues the love story of Maximoff Hale and Farrow Redford Keene.
Now that their relationship is out in the open for anyone to pick apart, Farrow and Moffy are trying desperately to protect each other from the vicious ‘fans’ who seek to tear them apart and spread lies about their love and their families. Once again, we are thrusted into the universe of the Hale, Meadow & Cobalt children and their bodyguards. Falling in love with every single one of these individuals is a side effect of reading this series. You want to know everything about their lives. You’re going to want a book on every single character.
The third in the series, Alphas Like Us continues to tell the story of the aftermath of all that happened in Lovers Like Us.
Farrow Keene – confident and a protective alpha male is ready to do whatever he has to do to protect Maximoff. As his bodyguard, it’s literally his job to protect him. But soon it becomes difficult to protect someone famous when you’re also becoming famous. Being the boyfriend of the oldest Hale child, it doesn’t come with as many perks as one would believe. All Farrow wants is to keep his boyfriend safe.
Maximoff Hale – headstrong, loving and also protective alpha male also wants to protect Farrow Keene. From the overbearing fans, haters and paparazzi. Learning to deal with this new twist in their relationship is hard, but the boys love each other so much. Making it work in such a way that they’re both happy is their number one goal. Maximoff and Farrow are both struggling though. They have other goals. Career goals. Farrow doesn’t know whether he can truly let go of medicine, especially with his father’s persistence about the issue.
Maximoff and Farrow have to go through big, chaotic changes in this book. They’ll have to fight for each other’s true happiness.
Now, I’ve been a big fan of Krista and Becca Ritchie’s books ever since I got my hands on Addicted to You. As you would expect the Like Us series, which continues the story of characters introduced to us in their addicted series, would be something which is much anticipated. This book was a perfect conclusion to Maximoff and Farrow’s love story. This book showed the softest and pure moments between the two individuals which made my heart soar. They were vulnerable and bare for each other. If you enjoy love stories where two men will do anything to protect each other and love each other with every inch of their souls, then I think Maximoff and Farrow’s story is it for you.
I don’t love him because he’s a coveted piece of art to thousands here and the millions outside. I love him because he’s so pure it hurts, so moral it aches and so strong-willed it kills me not to speak to him, not to be near him, not to look at him or to protect him.
As well as the core love story, I am absolutely enraptured with the side characters and what is most definitely hinted to be future love stories to come, particularly with characters like Sullivan Meadows, Akara Kitsuwon, Jane Cobalt and Thatcher Moretti.
Besides the romance and the romances to come, the family aspect is absolutely wonderful, giving us further insight to cousins and siblings of Maximoff Hale and how their lives are going. With more and more information given about these characters, I become more excited about learning more about their stories in their own books (hopefully). Characters like Luna Hale, Charlie Cobalt, Jack Highland and Oscar Oliveira will make you grin like Connor Cobalt’s billion dollar one. P.S Ryke Meadows still makes me swoon like mad. Oh, I love a man. Loren Hale is truly that Dad.
“Connor Cobalt, Ryke Meadows, and Loren Hale have already claimed the other side of the wooden table. Three larger-than-life men. Each one had a profound impact on Maximoff, and it’s always clear to me when I speak to them just how great their influence was and still is to this day.”
Overall, I really enjoyed reading Alphas Like Us. As for why my rating is unusually lower than what I give KB books, I just wish this plot had a little more sustenance as it felt a bit over the place.
The family moments and friendship moments are most definitely worth reading the book for though. The romance will grip you if you love alpha males. Watching these characters go through their highs and lows of these characters will make you root for them so much. KB are really good at creating characters you will love, adore and want the best for.
