Book Review: Becoming Us

Becoming Us by Amy Daws 

 
Synopsis from Goodreads: The dreaded friend-zone... the last place I ever want to be with college basketball God, Jake LaShae. I am losing my mind trying to figure out what this gorgeous and confident man wants from me. I need to break through his walls. What is it about me that makes him not go there? What am I lacking? When a mind-blowing betrayal knocks the wind out of me, and I think I can't feel any lower...Brody stumbles into my path—barefoot no less, and sexy as hell. His direct and mouth-watering swagger is a breath of fresh air. The feelings this man gives me are like nothing I've ever experienced. But Brody has a past. A past that makes it nearly impossible for him to trust me and let us become us in whatever capacity that may be. Just when Brody and I truly connect, just when I think that finding my soul-mate in college isn't a total joke, Jake comes back into my life…and messes things up…possibly for good.


My thoughts: After reading A Broken Us and falling in love with Finley and Brody's story, I was eager to learn of how they meet and fell in love. Becoming Us gives readers a realistic taste of how easily love can be earned and lost with foolish mistakes our of youth. While I was uncertain of who's side I was one after reading Amy's first book in The London Lovers Series, I am truly a Team Brody member once I finished Daws' latest book. If Finley was someone I would meet in real life, I don't think I would be a big fan of hers. She makes decisions quick without thinking of others and as a college student, really needs to grow up. On the other hand, Brody is someone that you just can't help but adore. A man who knows what he wants and doesn't let outside pressures ruin his life. If you've every struggled with being "good enough" in a relationship, I highly recommend you read Becoming Us.
