About the Author

Sarina Bowen writes steamy, angsty contemporary romance from Vermont's Green Mountains. (Her ancestors began logging and farming Vermont during the 18th century. These were rugged, outdoor types without benefit of a laptop or a good latte. It boggles the mind.)

Sarina enjoys skiing, skating and good food. She lives in Windsor County, Vermont, with her family, eight chickens and too much ski gear and hockey equipment.

4.5 stars It seems like I’ve been waiting forever for this sequel to Him, and overall Us is a success. Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy do an admirable job of integrating endearing protagonists, humor, and steam—with a smidge of angst on the side—into an enticing storyline. The story picks up with Wes and Jamie living in Toronto. Wes is enjoying his rookie year in the NHL, and Jamie is coaching a high school junior majors team. Their jobs keep them travelling a lot so they’re learning to deal with the difficulties of being apart more often than being together. Adding to the strain, Wes hasn’t come out to his teammates so he and Jamie must pretend to be roommates rather than lovers. I’ve come to adore Wes and Jamie so I was desperate for them to get their acts together and start communicating. I typically find lack of communication irritating because it just seems childish. In this case, it wasn’t annoying as much as it was painful seeing Jamie and Wes fall into a tense and awkward relationship. Throughout it all though, you can feel their love, and I understood that their reluctance to share their feelings stems from fear of driving the other away. What really frustrated me was Wes and Jamie going to extremes to keep their relationship hidden from Wes’s teammates and the public. Wes came out to his team’s administration in the previous book—who were very understanding—and he has always been open about his sexuality with his friends and former teammates. I didn’t understand the necessity to go back in the closet. Would being openly gay really affect his success given Wes’s obvious talent? And so what if it did? He was willing to lay it all on the line before. I also struggled with Wes’s teammate, Blake. He moves into the same building as Wes and Jamie, and while he means well, he’s beyond annoying and intrusive. For the life of me, I couldn’t figure out why they put up with him. He kind of grows on you though. Like a fungus. I kid, I kid. This book is more serious than the previous one, but there’s still an abundance of humor and tenderness. Jamie and Wes just fit. Period. This story is a scorcher, and leave it to Sarina and Elle to make very naughty sexting also hilarious. Jamie’s family is back and they are a real highlight of the book. I was happy to be reunited with my boys. Despite a couple bumps, it’s a wonderful ride toward a happy ever after.
