One is new to love.
One is bad at love.
One denies love.

Twenty-one-year-old, foul-mouthed Olympian, Sullivan Meadows, just made a huge mistake. She told her bodyguards—her buddies, her pals—they could take her virginity. Words forever engrained in her brain.

And theirs.

Akara Kitsuwon & Banks Moretti are best friends, sworn to protect each other and their client Sullivan.

Shelves: disappointment
Alright lets start this: Ever since I started "Damaged Like Us" I started to love Akara and Sulli and their book was the only book I was looking forward to. Especially because I was anticipating Sulli's Point-of-view because she was Raisy's daughter. The only reason why I picked up all of the books that followed Damaged Like Us was because of Kitsulli. They have that really great chemistry since the beginning of the series. The fact that I rated this book with 5 stars before changing it to 1 sta ...more

i don't think i can ever put this lightly. when i say i'm disappointed, i really fucking mean it. i've dedicated over three? years of my life and SO MUCH fucking love to these two authors (i even own the $100+ book set just because I loved them THAT much), and even more so to akara and sullivan's love story. i don't know what vendetta the writers have against people who love kitsulli—from blocking their supporters from facebook groups to publicly shaming them—but this is not how you treat your r ...more

KBR is only writing for middle-aged white soccer moms who have a fetish for m/m and poly relationships (instead of wanting actual representation and diversity) because their husbands can't f*ck them properly.

Kitsulli was the last good thing about this spinoff and now they're ruined. After SLU, I'm not gonna read anymore KBR books. Can't believe these are the same people who gave me Lily, Lo, Rose, Connor, Daisy, and Ryke.
After actually reading:

I absolutely loved this book and the characters. I am gonna be honest, in the beginning, I was all team Akara, but then my interest shifted to Banks and now I am fully team Akara & Banks.

I love how slowly these two guys came to realize that they also love each other. And no, I don't mean that in a romantic way, because so far, they don't have any sexual feelings towards one another... But they do care about the other deeply and I think that is a real "must" when you are i

Oh boy, the pettiness of some people when it comes to these books is at an all time high these days.
I respect an author’s right to do whatever they want with their characters, they created them.
If I don’t like something, I simply don’t read it and move on. The childlike ridiculousness and the 1 star reviews will not change anyone’s mind, especially the authors! Unfollow, unfriend and move on girls!

All you negative people are assholes. Their books are great so just let it be. Everyone anticipated Akara and Sulli, right? Right! So they changed it up and made it more interesting for us. Read the book when it comes out and then comment. And for those who think KB Ritchie don’t respect the LGBT community? For real? What books of theirs are you reading? Because I feel majority of their books fully support that community. Middle aged women? I’m not even going to comment. A book is a book; it’s g ...more

Just because you don’t like the stans of a ship doesn’t give you the right to completely change the dynamic of a ship you confirmed over A YEAR AGO just to spite them. Not only was adding banks to kitsulli unplanned (those who argue foreshadowing need to understand that foreshadowing =\= development) but it was only written for straight old women to flick their clits and fetishize to. Do better.

kitsulli had the best buddyguard/client relationship build-up in the entire Like Us series. It was the most anticipated and fan favorite on twitter. The fact that kbr decided to suddenly make them a poly relationship is completely ooc. I mean akara is the one bodyguard who abides by the rules AND there were many mentions of sulli wanting a singular love like her parents.

It’s not secret kbr has disliked kitsulli fans since the moment any hint of their relationship surfaced. they have constantly

I was so excited to get to Sullivan Meadows book, but when I heard what direction the authors were taking her story, I have to admit I was a bit nervous. I shouldn’t have been though. Krista & Becca did an amazing job with her story and I’m so happy to report that this one worked for me!

"Akara Kitsuwon & Sullivan Meadows & Banks Moretti's romance."

I didn't want to be one of those who rate a book low and rant before it even comes out but I really just can't let this go and I have to be That Bitch.

First off, I know authors can write whatever they want and these characters belong to them. But to watch a series that I loved so much from authors that I loved so much go down into the shitter really fucking hurts and I'm too salty to not rant about it.

Look, I get why a lot of people are upset but you guys need to understand that this isn't your book. Yes, you paid for the books in the series but that doesn't mean you have the right to hate the authors and give them this much crap over this sudden change. You guys are literally talking crap over a book which hasn't even released yet. You are not giving this relationship a chance, and I am honestly disappointed on how disrespectful some of you have been towards the characters in the book. Yes, ...more

I'm reviewing this only to combat the massive amounts of negative reviews on here for a book that ISN'T EVEN OUT YET. There's no blurb, no cover, nothing for these people to rate it one star over except for the relationship this story revolves around, and it's completely unfair to the authors and the bookish community for this book to be rated so poorly at this point. I'm so disappointed and upset for these courageous and kind human beings who put their hearts and souls into their writings and t ...more

Kicking myself in the ass for not listening to my gut sentiment to not touch these books. I'm boo boo the fool. And I'm an even bigger fool for not walking away when I first got the layout of TLU, Marrow and their several books, Cobaretti with two, Kitsulli with only one.

I don't necessarily disagree with the reasoning behind the outrage. I felt quite cheated and purely from a marketing sideof things, this reveal was nonsensical.

However, it is ridiculous to be so vicious. I have probably missed something in terms of people feeling attacked by the authors, I really don't know. But these one-star reviews are taking away the enjoyment of the people who a) either love the pairing or b) are patient enough to WAIT for the book to come out to give their full judgm

not all criticism is bad criticism. lots of people raised valid concerns about your writing (i.e. your fetishising of the lgbt community and the lack of focus on poc) but you merely deleted these comments and took the high road by victimizing yourselves. you gained a following of soccer moms in recent years who read your books only for the sex and at the request of one of them you decided to change your best couple into mfm just to appease them and to spite us, your long-term readers.

It still blows my mind that the Like Us series and the Calloway Sisters series is written by the same authors, the writing is like worlds apart! While I never made it a secret that I'm not a fan of the Like Us series at all, never in my memories was the writing this bad. WLU had so many cringy moments.

I'm sorry if this review is very confusing and messy. I'm just trying to write down every thoughts I have about this book, which I have A LOT of. If you think this has no structure, you're absolute

I went through all the emotions while reading it.
Seriously, The whole story is a love letter to the Meadows family, to Skylar, to Adam Sulli and to Banks , Sullivan and Akara.
This story is also about life and death, about friendships, about family, about forgiveness and about a WILD BEAUTIFUL SOULMATE LOVE that won’t be tame.

not in the business of petty rating, but when authors take it too far....

fetishization, calling people who ask for poc rep "bullies", allowing their middle aged women fanbase to share and nut over m/m porn on their fb group, treating their characters like trash, using one of their biggest fanbase to go on with this series by baiting them and using false advertisement just to then call it a strategy and saying it was planned from the start..

November 2020 review:

“𝐹𝑒𝑒𝓁 𝓉𝒽𝑒 𝓂𝑜𝓂𝑒𝓃𝓉.”

So, I finished this book. The building friendships and relationship was done very well. I felt the close friendship between Akara and Banks. Their need to keep Sulli safe was the catalyst of this building bond.

Akara is still in total denial and Banks shows his growing desire for Sulli when she is most vulnerable and he gives her that.

I’m choosing to trust kbr. They created some of my very very favorite characters, and I’m choosing to believe that they’re seeing all this criticism and making a conscious effort to fix things in their upcoming books. This rating is in no way disregarding ANYTHING they’ve done in the past, and I think all of the hurt/anger is 100% valid. But I don’t believe in intentionally damaging people’s careers and livelihood (which is exactly what giving a 1-star rating to an unreleased book is doing). ❤️ ...more

I have been waiting for this book for ages, was so excited and couldn’t wait to have this baby in my hands.

Today, that changed.

Sulli and Akara could have been THE BEST best friends to lovers couple ever; Akara has had only eyes for her and hates any guy that could potentially be involved with Sulli romantically. Sulli is only interested in Akara.

Now, our lovely authors have announced that Kitsulli will be a MFM relationship together with Banks. They are trying to say how they had planned this a
