Falling in love was the easy part.
Lucky and Saint are head-over-heels for each other. It doesn’t matter that they met only a few months ago. It also doesn’t matter that this is Saint’s first real relationship and Lucky’s first with a man. They’re infatuated, happy, and excited to start their life together in LA.
It isn’t as easy as they thought.
Away from home for the first time and feeling like he has to compete with Saint’s experienced and cultured friends, Lucky is a fish out of water. Saint is still coming to grips with his recent loss while doing everything he can to keep Lucky happy. The only time things feel right is when they lock themselves away from the world—when they’re alone, everything is perfect.
But reality comes crashing back in to challenge them at every turn. Lucky and Saint need to learn how to stand together, as well as apart, if they’re to have any hope of making this last. They’re learning the hard way that “I love you” is when the real work begins.
**IF YOU HAVEN’T READ SOMETHING ABOUT YOU: STOP! SPOILERS AHEAD**
Something About Us by Riley Hart is the beautiful follow up to Something About You. At the end of SAY, Lucky decided to move to Los Angeles to be with Saint. The boys quickly learn that “I love you’s” are only the start of a relationship. New relationships, in addition to a new city, a new lifestyle with some self-discovery and unresolved personal feelings can take a toll no matter how in love you are.
What I loved:
-Self-discovery. Lucky continued exploring his feminine side. I loved how open he was and how encouraging Saint was with him.
-I also loved the outlet that Saint chose to work out his feelings of loss.
-There were mutual respect and communication between them and even during their “hiccup,” it wasn’t written in a way that felt contrived.
-SENSUAL. Riley Hart can write some smexy scenes, y’all!
-This book was romantic as hell.
-And the end left me with no doubts of their HEA.
Typically, I’m not a fan of sequels for established couples, but after I finished book 1, I knew their story wasn’t over. Something About Us was everything I hoped and better. One of the best follow-ups I’ve read; as I said, I usually don’t care for them and avoid them like the plague.
P.S. There are some secondary characters that need their stories told. 🙂
