Book Description

Antonia is leaving the last shards of her life in Tucson behind to find her mother and start over. Turns out that's easier said than done. London is a pretty big city, a hundred bucks don't get you far and you can't just make your past disappear.
When sweet and caring uni student Wesley gets her a job and a room in his father's pub, Tony is unprepared for his older brother Trace who despises her at first sight. She's unprepared for someone whose secrets might be darker than her own.
Following a path of breadcrumbs and tangling up in Trace's past, Tony slips back into a world she thought she'd escaped the day her father went to prison.

Holy hot damn. These Things About Us caught me majorly by surprise. I’m going to be honest, the cover didn’t scream out at me, and the synopsis didn’t grab me by the jugular and demand I read it, but I was asked to read it, and read it I did. No, that’s wrong, I didn’t read it. I DEVOURED IT. Basically in one sitting. At the end I wanted to punch myself in the face for procrastinating for days! This was a book that I spoonfed my toddler dinner with one hand, and had my kindle in the other hand reading it. (Don’t judge!), I sat in the car reading all anti-social at my daughters dance class instead of chatting to other mums. It was THAT good. Beege drew me in and kept me for the duration. I highlighted 39 pages of passages I want to mention here. Moments that I know I will want to read over again. God, the story, the romance, the sizzle, the background. This book checked all the boxes. This story, Trace, Tony, is all one-click worthy. Go do it!!!

18 year old Tony Ainsley, aka Kitty, aka Ninja, is on the run from her past. Her father, his associates. His drama. She is working everyday to escape from the Antonia she used to be. Before she changed and became the girl she wants to be, Tony. She is searching for the mother that would never have abandoned her by choice & once she does, everything will be ok. Won’t it? She strikes some luck and ends up at the last glimmer of hope, The Dirty Dungeon. Fortunately she is taken in by some do-gooders where she sets up base and makes a day-to-day plan to find her mum. What she didn’t expect was for her room mate to despise her on sight, his brother to become a close friend, and her co-worker a shoulder to cry on.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not another unlabeled cliffhanger! October 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I could have given this more stars had I been prepared for the cliffhanger-like ending. If this is a standalone book, I'm disappointed in the ending and many of the plots points and details weren't completely explained.

If it's not, then I hope some of these things get resolved.

I realize that this doesn't give the kind of detail that the other reviews do, but I don't like too much revealed in reviews. Without Antonia's family background added to the mix (which made the book more interesting), this would have been another typical NA book where both young people are trying to overcome issues from their pasts while figuring out how to fall in love.

I'm really hoping there's a sequel otherwise I'm dropping this to 2 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bad Boys... they are the best! August 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was pretty freaking good! Seriously though, what is with all of these books being set in the UK? I am totally not complaining... But let me tell you, I REALLY want to visit all of these places I read about and the UK is just so damn far and expensive!

Anyways! You don't want to read about my travel ambitions sooo let's talk about These Things About Us!

I absolutely loved Tony right away! I knew there was a bigger story to her past, but when I found out what it was and how her life use to be... Compared to what it was now, I was totally blown away, I expected something but not THAT!! She is seriously such a strong character to have gone through what sh did, and regardless of her past she is seriously selfless.

When Tony meets Trace, he is such an ass to her and I was worried that I wouldn't be able to like him, boy was I wrong... He went from total douch to book boyfriend material! Trace is a perfect blend of all my book boyfriends, he is tough, but sweet, broken but healing, he is the ultimate bad boy that any bad boy lover such as myself can't help but fall in love with.

There are also a few side characters that totally surprised me which I totally loved, because really? Who wants to read a book that's predictable?

The author Laura Beege takes you on an adventure through London that is at times sad, but throughout it all makes it come alive with joy and happiness.

The only thing that really upset me is that there was no HEA, and but the end of the book leaves so many possibilities and is totally open to any interpretation... So of course I gave Tony and Trace my own HEA in my head... But I am holding out hope for a true ending whether good or bad, their story is definitely not over!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not real good at reviews November 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am terrible at giving reviews and don't do it often enough, but love to read and know they are important for other readers and the authors! So usually I leave it to others that are allot better at it...That being said this book needed a few more reviews...or should I say, my 5 stars. Did I say I read allot....hats off to you Laura you wrote your book how you say on your blog you wanted to. It isn't what you expect, don't want to give away anything, but know this book is a good afternoon read. Not sure what I paid for it or if it was free..no I wouldn't pay the crazy price of more than 2.99. I refuse to pay as much for an ebook as a paperback book. But it made me cry, smile and like, and associate with the characters. Like others I would like to see more but not at the expense of the story.
