Wes is having a great year as a rookie in the NHL and Jamie is along for the ride, coaching a young adult/youth league in Toronto so they can be together. They’re together, but things are still hidden. Because of how well Wes’s year is going, coming out and having a huge media thing isn’t what he wants. So for now, it’s staying quiet. And that’s not easy on Jamie.
There was a little bit of drama and conflict in this book, but I never once doubted the love that my boys had for each other. I love the two of them and their relationship. I love the emotion, the steam, and the way they are friends first. Elle Kennedy and Sarina Bowen really shine when writing together. Their styles compliment one another. I’ve adored both books in this series. And the audio. OMG I said it in my Him review, but it stands to be repeated- the audio for these books is INCREDIBLE! The narrator for Wes (Jacob Morgan) is everything! I love his narration for Wes. It’s just so great! This series is one you don’t want to miss out on! I’m so happy I made the time to listen.
Overall: 5 stars

Absolutely loved it! #Wesmie FOREVER! I'm embarrassed that it took me this long to listen/read Us (especially since I've read both books in the spin off WAGS series), but it was everything I could have hoped for and more. Jacob Morgan and Teddy Hamilton are two of my very favorite narrators and they truly shine in this duet. They completely embody Wes and Jamie and bring a vulnerability and passion to both of these characters. Morgan is sinfully sexy as Ryan Wesley, but he also guts you with his incredible performance. You can hear every quiver in his voice and the desperation and grief are almost palpable. Hamilton also gives a stellar performance as Jamie, portraying all the confusion, frustration, and anger so well as Jamie struggles to find his place in this new city, new job, and new relationship. There really couldn't have been two better narrators for this audiobook.
Us picks up pretty much where Him left off and listeners/readers are able to witness the triumphs and struggles of this new couple. The happily every after is tested and it's the honest portrayal of these stumbles and missteps that make this story and its characters so endearing. I think everyone can relate to at least some of the fears and insecurities these two face and it only makes the story more powerful. Add in an amazing and hilarious cast of secondary characters (oh, Blakey I love you so!) and of course the ever incredible Canning clan, and you have pretty much a perfect book. I loved Ryan's teammates (green gingham forever!) and I already know that I will be doing a re-read/listen of Good Boy and Stay. There isn't much else I can say about the story that hasn't been said before, but this truly is such a wonderful love story. This duet is worth a hundred credits! Don't miss it!
Jamie was a guy I'd never imagine having to deal with depression only why shouldn't he? Depression isn't something isolated to only specific people. I've been clinically depressed most of my life regardless of my circumstances. It's not unfair to say a guy who wound up in a hospital twice in a row after having never really been sick a day in his life would feel down about it. He about broke my heart with how worthless he was feeling while he was trying to get better.
I know those feels. Being sick sucks.
Wes did break my heart a little with his casual dismissal of his father's callousness and his undying love for Jamie who he simply could not fix when he was sick. I understood his helplessness all too well. The people we love shouldn't ever get sick. We should be able to do it for them. It'd be easier that way. I loved his interviews and his attempts to bond with his team. I was so thrilled with how things fell together for him in the end so he was proven wrong about how awful it'd be to be "The First Out NHL Player" since sometimes? I just want a happy ending even if it's not totally realistic.
I feel as if Jamie and Wes are getting that forever-happy-ending which I was worried they wouldn't manage. It's been a great ride and I can't wait to read more in their universe even if their story is told at this point. I'd recommend this duet to anyone who loves a good romance, friends-to-lovers, or people who like a little realism in their fiction since life can be messy but it's the messy parts which often make it the most beautiful.
While sex is a thing, there was too much of it - practically every time these two touch, they end up having sex unless they’re mad at each other. Sure, they’re prime athletes in their twenties, but...yawn. Yeah, yawn. When I skim the sex scenes, it’s too much and I’m not feeling much emotion there. Mostly more of the same. So, decent story, when the sex hasn’t taken it over, and I like the characters.
