Five months in, NHL forward Ryan Wesley is having a record-breaking rookie season. He's living his dream of playing pro hockey and coming home every night to the man he loves–Jamie Canning, his longtime best friend turned boyfriend. There's just one problem: the most important relationship of his life is one he needs to keep hidden, or else face a media storm that will eclipse his success on the ice.
Jamie loves Wes. He really, truly does. But hiding sucks. It's not the life Jamie envisioned for himself, and the strain of keeping their secret is taking its toll. It doesn't help that his new job isn't going as smoothly as he'd hoped, but he knows he can power through it as long as he has Wes. At least apartment 10B is their retreat, where they can always be themselves.
Or can they? When Wes's nosiest teammate moves in upstairs, the threads of their carefully woven lie begin to unravel. With the outside world determined to take its best shot at them, can Wes and Jamie develop major-league relationship skills on the fly?

Loved that this book was more about the ‘real life’ of a relationship. You know-after the kismet, the swooning, the winning the person over stage, there is the ‘real life’ stage. I was worried that Us would be all about more will-they-won’t they. Will they stay together? Will they break up? Thankfully, its not that book. Us really is more about how they will navigate their lives together. Its a very natural progression for the story and I enjoyed it. If you haven’t read Him, you should check it out!
