Loving You: Book Four
Can friends turned occasional lovers move beyond past mistakes and wrong assumptions to build something that can last?
Quiet bookworm Shane has a big secret—one he’s kept for fifteen years. AFL superstar Ambrose Jakoby grew up next door to Shane. They were close friends, and Shane supported Ambrose through school.
One night, everything changed.
Before Ambrose left Perth as a scared eighteen-year-old to head to Melbourne and take up his new footy career, Ambrose and Shane slept together.
For the next nine years, they continued a secret friends-with-benefits situation whenever Ambrose was in town. Shane never knew exactly where he stood or how to define Ambrose’s sexuality—and Ambrose didn’t know either. Then last Christmas, everything changed again, and a disagreement strained their friendship. Shane vowed to get over his unrequited love.
But Ambrose is back, recovering from an injury and hoping to make amends. He claims he’s ready for a real relationship. But Shane has to decide whether Ambrose means it and whether his Hufflepuff soul can take the chance.

My Rating - 5 Stars!

Being a huge fan of Renae Kaye, I am not surprised that Knowing Me, Knowing You hooked me immediately.

It's a complicated second chance romance, between Ambrose and Shane who are old friends and formerly hooked-up. 

Ambrose's back in town after getting injured. He's a pro footballer and he's home to heal, as well as see Shane. But Shane's not sure how to handle his long time friend. He loves him, but isn't sure if he can actually take a risk. 

It's a tender and romantic story of the different types of love, and the beauty of building a relationship based on a lifetime of love. 

The author does a fantastic job with the writing of demi-sexuality. It's written with understanding and care. And perfectly described as falling in love with a person, no matter what the body looks like. 

I love how Renae tackles the celebrity of Ambrose. There is definitely a difference between someone's public persona, and the real person. This is handled so remarkably, with so many examples thrown in. 

One wonderful reminder from this story is that it's special when you find someone who gets you, completely understands you, and loves you the way you are.

And, of course, it's absolutely amazing that Renae Kaye gifts us with all of our favorite men from this Loving You series. It's so much fun seeing them and getting to enjoy them again.

Overall, I love Knowing Me, Knowing You, and I'm so happy with this entire series.
