Re-read: 30.05.2021
Finally I got to re-read Marrow's last - just for now, I hope - book. I had to force myself to re-read Jane's books because I didn't remember all that much from it - that should've been a clue not to re-read it but you know me. That said, the book wasn't all that bad. I love seeing Moffy finally truly let himself love Farrow completely. I understand why I was disappointed the first time around, but I'm glad I still find this an enjoyable read. Still don't like Charlie thou

I had a lovely time reading this book and visiting old friends.... It was great seeing Farrow and Moffy finally tie the knot. I also loved all the parts that had Lily and Lo in it....makes me want to re-read the while Addicted series again.. Looks like I might have addictive issues as well.

I am not gonna give it 5 stars like I originally did, to cross out all the one-star reviews before the book was even out. I am gonna go with 4 because the story was very long an

Updated rating: 4 stars. Now I’ve read, I can update my rating. This was really enjoyable. I love that the characters didn’t change. Their relationship has always been full of banter, trust and communication. No silly misunderstandings, just two guys who love each other and have a healthy respect for the other. Sometimes to much of the same book gets boring, but for me these two never do.

And God, the way he makes me feel.

First and foremost, I want to thank Krista and Becca deeply, utterly for writing this book, this series. Words always escape me whenever I finish reading one of their books and I’m grasping at them know, because I’m desperate to make everyone understand how fucking amazing this book w

I, surprisingly, enjoyed this book way more than I thought I was going to but I still think this should’ve been a novella.

This marrow is the best one I’ve read in the series and there were a lot of cute moments that sold them to me in so different ways, I’m so happy these two got their happy ending.

I was so motherfucking scared for Lily and Lo. They’re my babies, my loves and I can’t even stand the thought of them not being okay but shit’s part of life and they have their ups and downs but they’

I’m going to marry the love of my life. One day. Someday. Soon.

Headstrong Like Us is the 6th book in Krista & Becca Ritchie's 'Like Us' series, which is a spin-off of their 'Addicted' series. I thought after reading 'Alpha's Like Us' we were done with the Moffy/Farrow story line, but the twins gave us a wedding book and I was so here for it.

Maximoff Hale and Farrow Keene have been through a lot in their relationship and they've withstood it all. Now, they're getting mar

Please let there be a Marrow wedding in this book! 🙏❤️


5 stars +++++ ⭐️

I would have given this more if I could, because this couple is honestly one of my all time favourite couples. If not THE favourite. And I can’t tell you how happy this book made me. The only time I wasn’t happy was at the end, because it was over.

I’m not really sure what to write because I don’t want to spoil anything, but this book was just everything and if you’re a Marrow fan then I’m sure you’ll feel th

Moffy & Farrow! *swoon* :)


Something is clearly happening in the black hole that is The Internet, and since I'm a '90 kid I usually stay away from stans or fans (or whatever they call themselves) BS and hurt feelings, 'cause I don't care about those. At all.

Rating a book before reading it while lamenting over the injustice of it all because y'all don't like these two fictional character is, probably, the most idiotic thing I've seen people do in a good while. We're talking Ron Weasley pointing a broke
Rating this 5 stars to counter all the 1-star ratings all the special fucking snowflakes dished it for one petty, butt-hurt, douchey, nasty reason or another!!! The book hasn't released yet for fuck's sake and I'm willing to bet, these shit-heads didn't get an ARC either [just by the content of their reviews, or lack thereof]!!!

I'm giving 5 starts just to counter all the 1 star ratings given by these shit-head "fans" trying to sabotage a MM book that hasn't even been released yet.

I feel bad for these authors. Must be nice to have such dedicated "fans" thinking they are entitled to control their creative choices, telling them what they can and can't do in their OWN books. I mean... Seriously?

This just shows how petty and douchey some "fans" can be. Going as far as creating fake accounts to sabotage an author's work beca

Another great book from Krista & Becca Ritchie
There are things I liked, things I didn't, but don't get me wrong. I did loved it, i ADORE the s**t out of this book. It's the perfect closure to this couple, is the perfect book to write when you have a long list of characters you want to write and you need to stop writing about the firsts.
That's why I wrote a long review. The most important thing is that, this book is different of all we've been reading. I like that about authors. I like how they

Overall, this was a really cute read.

I really love Moffy and Farrow and it was fun to experience their wedding and some other events surrounding it. With that said, I found it to be so long. I think this could’ve easily just been a novella. Other than the wedding and the stuff with Ripley, nothing major happens and no story gets truly advanced. I love KBR but I will respectfully say that this read like a filler book. I think this series needs a little revamping and they need to move on to some

So excited for this one! Will Review when book comes out!


Everything I wanted and more. I love this couple with my whole being. Really did not want the their story to end. A couple of things happened that I thought might have been a bit rushed, but it’s all about perspective. I’m so happy with the way it all ended. It all came together beautifully!

Loved it - and if you are a fan of Farrow and Maximoff you'll love it too.

I could talk for hours about this book, but all I would want to say is that for someone who could read many more books about this couple, this book made me happy.

I smiled and laughed, and just enjoyed it from beginning to end.

Before I'm going to start on my review on the book itself, I wanna write down why I have like a love-hate relationship with the authors

『 Let's start with telling about my problematic relationship with these authors. I adore (most of) their characters, the core 6 are my loves, but I really dislike the authors. They did and said a lot of things over the years that I don't agree with, but MY main problem is their blatant favorism towards one couple contrary to their ignorance of the rest of the

Before I write my actual review, I just want to say how ugly and despicable Goodreads can be. There are so many trolling reviewers whose words are hurtfully written vs writing an educated critical review.

Back to your regularly scheduled program.

K & B write the best fucking wedding scenes. They are epically sentimental and always make me cry. Marrow is already one of the most emotionally charged couples they've written. Add to that the feels of their wedding. Bring on the ugl
I rated this as 5 stars before I even read it because of all the petty 1 star reviews from people who were saying they didn't like what was gonna happen with Akara and Sulli and those who objected to two more mm books being added to the series - Those being this book and Oscar and Jacks book, Charming Like Us. All the backlash from a few months a go drove me insane and at times I found it personally insulting.

The anticipation for this book was everything, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it and devour it... and that’s exactly what I did. Who needs sleep when a book you’re anxiously waiting for releases? Not me. That’s why it’s 2:30am on release day and I’m writing this review. This is hands down my favorite book of 2019.

Everything about this book and the wedding of Maximoff Hale to Farrow Redford Keene was AMAZING. I knew going into it I’d shed a few tears.. and I did. But they were all extremely h

Oh boy, I can never get enough of these two. And I think I have decided that this is my favorite book in the series... I just die over all the lovely moments between Marrow and then all the Ripley moments just completely melt me. These 3 were meant to be a family and gah I just love seeing them so happy. Their love is one of the most amazing I've ever read, right there next to Lilo.

I love these characters and these families, and the Ritchies did an amazing job with Farrow and Maximoff’s story. I’m so intrigued by the little snippets into where the future books are going too! Another great read.

UPDATE - I had to take a few to really provide my take on this, and it took me some time to figure out how to really review without spoiling it. There is so much that happens, and yet it stays on a somewhat predictable course. The focus here - Marrow, and I ca

I freaking loved this book.
It was EPIC..
Every scene, every moment of these two together made my heart happy.

I am so so happy that Moffy was finally okay to be vulnerable with Farrow. For all the previous books abt this couple, I've always felt that Moffy still felt like he needed to be strong. He was vulnerable but this book... This book is where I saw Maximoff shine. Be his true self.
And it was perfect.

Who wouldn’t want more Maximoff & Farrow ? To see their relationship evolving, soul mates who need each other to breath, a love so powerful and strong was just gorgeous. I loved they still had their witty banter going on in times where things are getting too heavy , they balance each other out so beautifully. The new trial and tribulations with family , their upcoming nuptials and a couple of new family members was exactly how it should have been written.

A Book About a Wedding.

That’s it.
Over 400 words about a wedding.
Maximoff & Farrow’s wedding.
There is no conflict that drives this story.
There is a bit of drama (this is an OTT soap opera, after all)
But there is no conflict to drive this book.

What is there?....
There are a few sex scenes. Fab.
Maximoff worries about his bottoming streak.
There is a baby. He cries a lot.
Wedding prep. No probs.
4 dogs. They are cute.
Tattoos. Ooh.
Bachelor parties. Two.

"And I'd like to think Plato was right. That in the beginning of time, it was Farrow and me, and we were once whole together. Our souls united. But like all humans, we were split down the middle. Speratae halves wandering around this universe.
We found each other.
And finally, together, we became whole again."

I love this couple together. Their banter reminds me of Conner and Rose and their love for each other reminds me a Lily and Lo. This was a good conclusion and happily ever after for these characters.
