His Bodyguard. His Love.

Maverick, know-it-all bodyguard Farrow Keene knows publicly dating American royalty comes with a great cost. Everyone wants a piece of their relationship. And as a protective boyfriend, he’s not here for the malicious hands that grab at their love life and seek to rip them apart.

Forth re-read: 14.05.2021
This book is still the best one so far. I like how much closer Marrow is, how much more Moffy lets himself rely on Farrow. I want a Marrow love for myself.

Third re-read: 10.11.2020
Marrow is beautiful. I think I could've read 10 books about them. Even if the story itself is a bit boring, Marrow is worth it. Technically I should lower the stars to three, but I can't make myself do it, so I'll just do it in writing instead.
New Rating: 3/3.5 stars.

Quick thoughts:

Oh, this has been such a fun ride with Moffy and Farrow.

I took my time with this book -knowing it was supposed to be the conclusion of their story and I’m glad. Lately I’m taking way too much time reading book and yeah, mostly it’s due to work but I’m happy I’m taking the time each book deserves and now this is over.

With this book I realized how much Moffy takes after his parents. I saw parts of Lily in him, both good and bad and I saw parts of Lo, both good and bad and that was

Let me start out, by saying that this book can not be read as a stand alone. It has a continuing storyline, so you should definitely start with book 1. Now if you really want to enjoy this series, you should start with the Addicted / Calloway Sisters series. You don't have to.....but the books are awesome, so why skip (unless you don't read mf, because yes they are m/f, ) ?? would you do that gif

Anyways, this is the third book about Moffy and Farrow, but thankfully not the last ;) Krista and Becca have said, they wou
“You know, my heart is in your hand.”


It's pretty hard to review the third book in a series without spoilers. So I'll try to keep this as generic as possible. After finishing Alphas Like Us, after all those twists I didn’t see coming and all those sweet moments, my heart IS SO FULL. I am so happy. I am filled with love for these characters.

Every. Single. One.

I have loved every book so far in this series. Yet, I think this one is by far my favorite.

Maximoff and Farrow are finally enjoying being together out in the open. No more hiding for these boys! They're enjoying being able to touch, kiss, and no longer pretend. But with this new found freedom comes the haters, the crazy paparazzi, and a porn star. Yes, I said porn star. All of this making life for these boys more difficult. But the one thing that stays true, strong, and solid is their

It doesn't happen often but this series gave me the biggest book hangover ever!!!!!

ALPHAS LIKE US was more than I could have ever hoped for. The bond that Maximoff and Farrow have is one of a kind and I adored and devoured everything about them from beginning to end.

To describe this book/series to someone that has never had the pleasure of reading a book by this author couple is like describing something that's already perfection in every way.

Enjoyed this one just as much the second time around! And shockingly enough I’m really looking forward to Thatcher and Jane’s book (MF). And I’m even more glad to see most of the other books will be MM.

I'm going to round up on this one, the "conclusion" of Maximoff and Farrow's story. The last few chapters were greatness.

I was seriously bummed when this one ended. So much so I decided to go back and read book 1, where Maximoff and Farrow first become a couple. And I may even read boo

I'm trying to find the correct way to phrase this but it's probably going to come out as a broken jumble of thoughts. There is a reason I will ALWAYS pick up a KB Ritchie book, and it's because they never lack in delivering the best quality product/book to their readers. When you read a KB Ritchie book, you can tell this story came from the heart and they've given so much of themselves in the process.

This is where I get on my soapbox for a bit here so bear with me. I've been very v

This was without a doubt one of the best romance series I have ever read. And although I am reading some MM books from time to time normally I would prefer MF any day but I think I have to rethink my previous book choosing :)

The love between Maximoff (yeah I love the name who doesn't like Quicksilver) and Farrow (love that one too reminds me of a pirate everytime) is something out of this world. Farrow always tells Maximoff how pure he is and I think that is the word you need to describe their c

I'm so glad that, after all, I decided to read this book. Honestly, I wasn't sure if I should continue, because I don't like Moffy and Farrow. (view spoiler) However, out of the three books, I'm so glad I can report I like this one the most.

It's still sadly not on the same level as the Calloway Sisters series, but I like their writing. I liked other chara

“Dum spiro, spero.”

Plain and simple...I L♥VE Marrow...everything little thing about them is perfection. I love how much they know each other, how much they tease each other and especially how much they love each other.

So, why not five stars? Well, it's all the negativity. It just wears you down. When I started the Addicted series, the negativity was a slow build and then it (sort of) became a white noise...something in the background. But for the last couple of

Oh my gosh, how cannot I love this awesome series!!! Another fantastic book from Krista & Becca! Thank you so much ladies, you're keep making my days so much better. <3


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

but still I highly recommend their Addicted / Calloway Sisters series to you.

Another beautiful, amazing and engaging book by KB Ritchie. I love their writing, it’s simply amazing. The way they make you feel like you’re completely in this story and the way you get invested in these characters is a testament to their amazing storytelling. I absolutely loved this third installment in the Marrow love story. It was full of twists and turns and things I truly didn’t expect. Loved it! I can’t freaking wait for Jane and Thatcher’s book!!!!!

It's been a few days and I've been trying to formulate my thoughts about this book and how I could write a review without spoiling things and I've come to the conclusion that I really can't. So I'm going to keep this short and sweet.

I started this book the moment I woke up on release day and I could not put it down until I finished it. It was soo good with the trademark KB addictive writing style. There is just something about the way they write that I love so much and makes me want

6++++ Stars!

I love all of the books by Krista & Becca Ritchie. Watching Rose and Connor fall in Love was my favorite, but y’all...Maximoff and Farrow have taken first place. This was the best book! It is by no means the end of their story, but the Ritchie twins ended this for them now amazingly. I cannot wait to get Jane and Thaatcher’s story. Selfishly I hope each child gets at least three books each because I don’t want this series to ever end. My absolute favorite read this year so far!

Oh this is the best so far!

My first review in SO LONG--WOO!

Tears scald our eyes, and we breathe and breathe, and I whisper, “You know, my heart is in your hand.”

Another great book by the twins about love, family, and of course drama. By now I feel fully immersed in the lives of the Hales, Cobalts, and Meadows--enough so that they could be real people that I’m old friends with. That is by far my favorite thing about all of these books. My family has always been super important to me so I have ALWAYS loved reading books/ se

The supporting characters stole the show for me. I am obsessed with Sulli and Jane, I can't wait for their books. (They deserve all the happiness in the world.) We got a lot of teases with them and their future love interests and it was everything. Their books might actually kill me.

We also learn a lot more about characters we haven't seen much from in the past books, like Ben, Winona, and Beckett. (I'm suddenly a Beckett stan??) We also get a lot more scenes with the core six here. Fans who hav

2020 re-read: Oh man they are so precious wow. The proposal scene is legit one of my favorite scenes in this book and series. I love it so much. On another note, the car accident is one of the most emotional yet powerful too. Gosh their love is just so beautiful. It hits me so hard in the feels. These two will forever be one of my favorite couples. I swear. I am Lily, Lily is me. #Marrow for life!

It is everything that I wasn't expecting! SO many things happened that I did not see coming! Once again, I love how KBRitchie developed the secondary characters aside from developing the primary characters. It seems like with each new book in this series I get even more invested with everyone. My wishlist of Like Us characters to have their own books just keeps getting longer and longer!

I'm crossing my fingers, toes, hands, and legs for the fourth book, Tangled Like Us

Also, still super excited for the next book because FINALLY Jane’s book! <3 May we see lots of cats and questionable fashion choices and Cobalt’s family dinner debates.

Anyway, so here are some of my thoughts:
• 1st 75% - I gotta admit I was not really enjoying it. This has not happened to me for any of the Addicted books before, so that’s unsettling. I just felt so annoyed for whatever reason. I know it’s in Moffy’s character to push himself for his loved ones, but dang, that bo

"Love is pain, and you know what... I feel sorry for anyone who hasn't met it yet."

I think it is impossible for me to not enjoy a book by Krista and Becca. I think I'll blindly buy any book these two write. Alphas Like Us, is the third book in the Like Us series that focuses on Farrow and Maximoff as a couple. I was sad when I started this book, because I have become very attached to these two. But I also wouldn't want the authors to drag the story on longer than necessary. I didn't love this bo

Audiobook Review

What a fantastic way to end Maximoff and Farrow’s love story. Alphas Like Us had me shipping #Marrow so hard! Krista and Becca Ritchie really came at me with the feels in this one. The depth of emotions is piercing, but there is also plenty of wit throughout. The two men face an onslaught of trials that keep the plot moving smoothly along with a perfect amount of tension. This story is consuming and completely satisfying, alt
5 stars and all the feeeeeels!

What can I say about Maximoff and Farrow that I haven’t already said? Not a whole lot, because they are an amazing couple and I cannot gush enough about them, and this book is a spectacular celebration of the love that Maximoff and Farrow have for each other. This is their third book, and they remain together, committed, and riding all that life throws at them – standing strong together, being there for each other and leaning on each other. And every

I can never forget the first MM book that I've read. Now that the third book has arrived, I sure did not put any hold into reading that one. I AM SO HAPPY BECAUSE THIS ONE DID NOT DISAPPOINT.



1. Now that you have it, you can cherish it.
Marrow's love for each other really is top notch and one of the best there is. They understand each other so much that it sometimes feels like they were stitched together or made just for each other. I LOVED THOSE TYPE OF SCENE EVER
I am a HUGE fan of Krista Ritchie and Becca Ritchie. My sappy, cheesy romantic self lives for the "soul mate love" that these authors write about. I felt that type of love in every single one of their books since Addicted to You, and I think it's the type of love that we all secretly (or openly) crave; to have someone love you that deeply, truly, unconditionally.

I tried and failed to prolong this story, reading it slowly to make it last. I want Moffy and Farrow's story to keep going. The "soul m

I've read this book less than most others in this series because PAIN, but I love this book so much. And the Patreon Bonus scenes that go along with this book are absolutely incredible. Can't wait to reread Jane and Thatcher
