Well, as usual, just exceptional!

I love this series, just wish that the audiobook formats were released at the same time as paperback format.

I know/appreciate that a lot of authors (self published/published), either share royalties with the narrator, the likes of Audible.com invest and produce the audiobooks, or in most cases, the author pays out their own pocket to release this format.
It’s just a shame because of the quality of this series, and many others, that the audio format always seems come last when it comes down to the release of the titles.
Considering the price that’s charged by Audible to purchase a title (on average £18), I’m surprised that when there’s a popular series released, that there isn’t some sort of deal to have them all released at the same time - but sadly not the case!

This is a great series whether read or listened to, and I highly recommend you listen from the beginning (book #1 - Damaged Like Us) to fully understand the concept and characters of the series (and there are some right characters - the ‘Oliveiro Brothers’ to name a couple)

A fantastic read/listen definitely 5 🌟 across the board!!

#Marrow Forever

This is the third in the series of Maximoff’s and Farrow’s stories and you must listen to them all to really appreciate the development of the relationship between Moffy (Maximoff) and Farrow.
The duel narrators are superb, allowing you to easily distinguish between each and every character, and believe me there are many supporting characters besides the MC. For me Alexander Cendese and J.F Harding are Moffy and Farrow.

I never wanted it to end.

Nooooooooooooo! <------- My exact reaction when the audiobook ended, although I think I need a few more ooooos. Add in the fact that I was throwing my head back against the headrest like a toddler having a tantrum and I'm sure I was getting more than a few looks from my fellow commuters last night. I know this series isn't ending, but with the focus moving off of Maximoff and Farrow, at least temporarily, I'm now in a period of mourning.

I love #Marrow so much! I had no idea when I started this series how deeply and completely I would fall. But man did I ever! Fall that is. I am head over heels for these 2. I don't want to ever say good-bye to them! (Whiney toddler tantrum mode in effect.)

Alphas Like Us is more emotional than the previous 2 books. So many tears at different points! Mostly happy tears, but some *hit you right in the feels* tears, too.
Moffy and Farrow love each other sooo much and you could just *feel* it. Ugh, is it wrong how much love *I'm* feeling for fictional characters??? But I can't help it! Seeing how much they cared for each other, how they weren't afraid to show it once they were finally able to be a "regular" couple, they are just so sweet and funny and freaking adorable. How can you not love them!

I could go on and on and on about my love for this book, about my love for this series, about my love for Maximoff and Farrow, but I'm guessing you'd get a little sick of it. So I'll just say that these 3 books have cemented a place in my all-time favorites. #MarrowForever

J.F. Harding and Alexander Cendese are Maximoff Hale and Farrow Redford Keene. They are so perfect as their respective characters! Every time there was a chapter change and Alexander would say "Farrow Keene" I was saying it right along with him- I don't know why, but it just felt right. I want to go back and listen to these books all over again. I foresee them being in heavy rotation in my car.

Still in love

I am still in love with this series and the narrators! I totally get sucked in to the story partly because of the fantastic writing but also because each narrator makes the characters come alive in ways that me reading text on a page just can’t.

" Begin at the beginning, " The King said, very ..


gravely, " and go on till you come to the end: then stop ". Lewis Carroll, AIW

It sounds so simple and it even sounds as a jest; but I did what the King said, I kept going.

I am reading/listening to the Like Us Series till the end. To the last book of this on going series.

Why? Because at this point , I am invested. I care about all the characters in the series.

With that said, it took me a bit to get into Alpha Like Us. This series have so many MC's , main plots, subplots , under-cover-plots😏 über-plots , trivial -plots 😳 that at times it's exhausting . Few times many of those extra, extra plots are left open , unresolved or/and simply forgotten and that is annoying.

At this point of my review, I imagine explanations about who is who in Alpha Like Us is unnecessary as to get here , you had to read books 1 and 2 . These books aren't standalone.

What I liked: Farrow and Maximoff alone time to be a couple. The 5 days in Greece were great. Farrow letter to Beckett . #Marrow 😍 and Maximoff and Farrow's conversations.

What I didn't like: Xander subplot that went no where and didn't contribute anything to the main plot, the same goes to Beckett subplot.

I realize that the Charity auction was part of the plot to introduce a villain but the actual resolution
and consequences of why Maximoff and the others participated and then pull out wasn't really address .

Also , why Maximoff was fired as CEO , when he is the one who brings the money and he the main attraction, it doesn't make sense , at all. In book 2 , it was said because he wasn't in the office enough , but to get money for charity, organizations and individuals reach to the donors not the way around. Sitting in a office doing paper work and staff meetings won't get you donations.

In summary: Even if I wanted to stop with this book, I cannot.

Becca and Krista Ritchie writing style and likeable characters creates a spider web that frankly is impossible to get out.

Onwards towards Tangled Like Us , Thatcher and Jane's story.

As with the previous books the narration and Alexander Cendese and J.P. Harding , actors portraying Farrow and Maximoff did an splendid job bringing these two heroes to live.

Review for the Kindle and Audible versions.

I can’t get enough!

I just finished listening to this 3 book series again! That’s how much I love it! Cendese and Harding are excellent narrators who bring the The Ritchie’s characters, Maximoff and Farrow, to life. I can’t wait for their next book.
